  • Diversity and Overcoming Pay Gaps in the Modern Workplace
    Diversity and Overcoming Pay Gaps in the Modern Workplace Jennifer Riggins Recorded: Aug 8 2018 62 mins
    What are you doing to make sure your office is diverse and welcoming? Diversity in the work environment is proven to promote acceptance, respect, and teamwork, embracing differences in race, age, gender, native language, political beliefs, religion, sexual orientation, and communication styles among employees. Movements like #metoo has us talking about this more in certain industries and at a systemic level, but what can we do as individuals in the workplace? Grab your drink and sit down to join us for what's sure to be an engaging episode of WIT: Women in Touch, when women trying to make a change are going to share their advice for how you can too, whether you are in a position to attract and hire talent or you are struggling to overcome these barriers. And, once diversity is increased at your office or university, what can you do to make it work?

    Why should you join? Let's start with some facts because the status quo is unacceptable:
    April 10 marks Equal Pay Day for women in the US (the infamous 78 cents on the dollar), but we are choosing to hold our discussion on diversity and pay gaps on August 8, following Equal Pay Day for black women in the US.
    Women in tech make on average $40,000 less a year than their male counterparts. Women of color in tech in particular often lack the support channels and feel ostracized in their roles.

    This discussion is in part a follow-up to our first episode which focused on the Working Mom. Mothers end up earning about 40% less than what their childless female counterparts earn over a lifetime. The pay gap between white women and black women is the fastest growing income inequality there is, according to a report by the Economic Policy Institute. This gap has grown from 6% in 1979 to 19% today, and it's growing directly alongside greater inequality.

    The main reason to join is this isn't just an esoteric conversation, but a practical one that gives everyone practical ways to make a change, no matter what her or his role is.

    Recruiting has to be more then just filling a vacant position – and retaining top talent is all about making the right selection to begin with. Managers need to look at the scope of the role – and how that may have changed since the last person held the position.

Finally, our discussion will conclude with the tools to identify top talent and ensure they are aligned with the long-term success of your organization.

    ·Embracing technology while still creating a personal connection

    All of us have experienced conflict at some point, at home, at work, maybe at school or elsewhere – and usually it is seen as a bad thing, something that is disruptive when it comes to the workplace.

  • Creating a Coaching Culture
    Creating a Coaching Culture Suzanne Saxe-Roux, Right Management & Valerie Marple, P&G Sep 6 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    It’s clear that converging economic, technological, and demographic changes are creating talent challenges for organizations, leaders and individual contributors. Skilled individuals, particularly those in short supply, have greater leverage to dictate terms of employment to their potential employers—how, where and when they want to work. So, how does an organization engage such an employee while meeting its own business objectives and goals? The answer lies in building a coaching culture.

    While meaningful work connects employees to an organization and its success, it is not enough. To foster deeper engagement and productivity, that work has to be embedded in a culture that invests in employees’ development, enables learning and empowerment, and supports individual accountability. Creating a coaching culture that encourages learning and development will help an organization attract, engage and retain the brightest talent, while also encouraging all employees to take charge of their careers.

    In this webinar we will provide insights into the journey toward building a coaching culture including a model to better understand where you are in this journey, best practices for building a culture, and practical recommendations. To bring this to life, we have a special guest from Procter and Gamble who will be sharing highlights from the organization's own cultural transformation journey including decisions around how and where to build coaching skills internally as well as when to leverage external coaches.

    We look forward to having you join this thought-provoking webinar!

    Global organizations are recognizing the massive cost of employee turnover.

In some organizations, employers have been able to attribute a 19% reduction in employee turnover to language learning. Join this webinar to see how this could look within your organization.

    What is personal branding? What you are projecting to the world online and off -- and what people are saying about you. How do you maintain your authentic self and be someone easily found and regarded as a (very hire-able) thought leader in your field? That's what today's conversation is about, talking to five women who have built their own businesses (and brands!) around some aspect of personal branding and personal growth.

    Who should attend? This is a no-brainer for anyone really because we are all looking to improve how our work is perceived and how we can convert that perception into more work and better networking.

    Who is grabbing a cuppa and having a conversation around personal branding — that is geared towards women but could benefit men too? This episode features the following branding goddesses:
    - Diana Berryman on social media and content marketing
    - Remi Erogbogbo on style and beauty, finding the right color to wear for your next important interview or meeting
    - Vibeke Foss on her niche building websites for female entrepreneurs
    - Dot Lung on building a community with social media

  • Securing your employees financial wellbeing - A best practice guide
    Securing your employees financial wellbeing - A best practice guide James Marsh, HRreview; Heidi Allan, Neyber Sep 27 2018 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    The link between financial security and physical and mental wellbeing has long since been established.

    Employees have to deal with busy lives and the complexities of major financial decisions, as well as key life events such as bereavement, buying a home or nearing retirement. It is not straightforward.

    With nearly half of the UK showing one or more signs of financial vulnerability and 46% of UK adults saying that their knowledge of financial matters is low, it is more important than ever for employees to manage and keep on top of their daily finances.

    50% of UK employees say that they feel their employers care about their financial wellbeing. But is there more UK employers can be doing to help and educate their employees on financial matters?

    In this webinar our expert panel will look at the importance of teaching employees good financial habits, budgeting and creating a 'savings buffer' to help them cope with the pressures of personal finance and economic uncertainty.

  • Managing parental leave in the global digital age
    Managing parental leave in the global digital age James Marsh, HRreview; Jennifer Liston-Smith, My Family Care Oct 10 2018 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In the competition for talent, doing something to smooth your people’s transition to parenthood has become almost a hygiene factor. And legislative, economic and cultural factors keep gender diversity at the top of most organisations’ agendas.
    Employers benchmarking against their sector find that maternity coaching, or – more inclusively – a parental leave programme, is now an expected provision in sectors such as banking, legal and professional services firms, and increasingly tech, insurance, media, fast-moving consumer goods and retail sectors. Many now provide blended (online and real world) programmes, whilst others have moved to purely digital solutions.
    Maternity coaching was first introduced on a wide scale in the early 2000’s. Two decades on, the world and the way we work has changed enormously.
    In this lively webinar, James Marsh will be discussing the latest trends and developments and the drivers behind them, with Jennifer Liston-Smith, Director, Head of Coaching and Consultancy at My Family Care, and a recognised innovator in the Parental Leave Coaching field. We will also be joined by a couple of case study guest speakers.
