Happy employees make productive employees. HR managers are now finding that compensation and benefits alone cannot keep employees happy; they also need nurturing through proper training and development. Join the BrightTALK talent management community to learn how to engage and retain your best talent by providing them with the tools and rewards they need to enhance their performance and reach their potential.
Effective leaders create high-trust cultures for their organizations and teams. People who are confident their leaders will treat them and their ideas without bias bring their best to work every day. Yet unconscious bias – automatically treating people differently depending on how much they’re like or unlike us in terms of age, experience, gender, ethnic and cultural background, and the like – is inherent in being human.
During this webinar, we’ll learn why unconscious bias happens, how it impacts individuals, teams, and organizations, plus what leaders can do to overcome these biases and create a work environment that values diversity and inclusion and makes the world a better place to live and work.
The workplace is changing fast and new radical developments are just around the corner, This webinar will explore the future of the workforce and how HR professionals can prepare their organisations for this brave new world.
We will be looking at workforce automation, the impacts of new technologies, innovations in the use of data, the rise of AI and how tech can be used to enhance the employee experience. We will also explore the future skills market including what will be in demand, how to motivate and retain complex groups of employees, the future of the gig economy, flexible working contacts, changes to pension structures and more.
What they don’t know WILL hurt them! Creating programs for Anti-harassment that work
You don’t want to be the next company on the evening news! But if employees don’t know the basics of identifying and reporting harassment how can we expect them to follow your procedures.
We will cover the basics you need to include in Anti-harassment and discrimination training, how to engage your audience and the legal compliance pieces that cover the responsibility your business has. If you are working in a company that expects you to be responsible for this with little or no budget for external training – this is the program for you!
You will learn:
·What are the key components of a training program
·How to align your message with your culture
·Engage employees to participate
·Covering legal obligations
This conversation features women in tech who have benefited from receiving and giving mentoring, but it's really for anyone who is looking for a hand up or to offer one. Our experts will share their experiences and talk about the importance of mentoring — though that it's not for everyone — how to find the right mentor and mentee for you, and how it's an important part of building a career in tech.
So grab your cuppa and join the conversation for the second episode of WIT: Women in Tech! We are talking to four awesome women in tech -- Tammy Bütow, SRE (site reliability engineering) and chaos engineering specialist at Gremlin; Ana Medina, chaos engineer at Gremlin (formerly Uber); Charu Sharma, CEO of Next Play an AI tool that helps companies connect their employees internally for mentoring; Etel Sverdlov, director of developer community and first hire at Digital Ocean; and Prima Virani, senior security engineer at Marqueta.
Their roles in tech benefit from a wealth of experience working with and securing those systems. But you usually have to have already worked with those systems to then be able to get jobs working with those systems -- a struggle for any junior-level job, but a particularly strong one in the tech space. This is where mentoring comes in. Each of these awesome women has benefited from being mentored and benefit from giving back and mentoring.
Join us (or sign up to listen to the recording later) to learn the best way to find a mentor or mentee/mentoree and how to leverage that relationship so you're both getting the most out of it. You'll learn about informal and formal guilds that support that mentoring, and what companies should do to facilitate these benefits. And you'll hear personal stories from these women who have built solid careers in tech on the shoulders of experience and support.
Bhavini ‘Bev’ Shah, Founder and CEO of City Hive, and Justin Onuekwusi, Multi Asset Fund Manager at Legal & General Investment Management, discuss the challenges and opportunities facing the Asset Management Industry.

Engagement is a learned competency. Join with us as we discuss how managers and leaders in your organization can learn to be engaged and engage their team members. Learn specific values that are associated with the engagement competencies and explore DecisionWise's new Engaging Leader Assessment.
Imagine leading a team that is highly multicultural or multigenerational. Or a team that is largely offline, remote, or working in diverse locations—perhaps where the opportunity for raises and promotions seem slim due to company structure or the economy, or where employees don’t feel inspired by the company’s underlying purpose or reason for being?
Is it possible to build a workplace culture where every employee feels inspired by and connected to the company’s purpose? Where each team member is actively working to improve the company because they feel a sense of belonging and feed off all the possibilities to make a difference that the company’s strategy represents?
It is, if you can build trust, provide opportunities to grow and develop skills, and empower employees to do great work and be successful in their own unique ways. It starts by aligning employees’ work to company goals and giving purpose to their work. Then make sure employees have a voice, empower them to lead the way, and encourage them to be innovative.
When companies take steps toward thriving workplace cultures, they see dramatic improvements in employee engagement, innovation, retention and business performance. Just ask Gary Peterson, Executive Vice President of Supply Chain and Production, at O.C. Tanner. He was able to transform a manufacturing workforce that struggled with engagement and collaboration into a culture where employees innovate, succeed, and celebrate together.
Join Gary as he shares best practices and strategies on using purpose and opportunity to create a great place to work.
During the webinar, you’ll:
- Learn how to provide employees with purpose and opportunities to grow and develop even when promotions and pay raises aren’t available.
- Gain best practices in empowering employees to innovate and do great work.
- See a case study and results of these efforts on employee engagement, retention, and innovation.
MBTI and other business psychology practitioners hold a lot of information on their clients, much of it of a sensitive nature addressing issues from performance data to aspects of personality profiles, and therefore are disproportionately affected by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This will not be a legalistic presentation but practical session with time for Q&A to provide an appreciation of how it could affect our professional lives.
On top of every organization’s to-do list is improving culture. Companies want to create workplace cultures that retain, engage, and attract employees, and they want to see the results of their efforts. But they also struggle with defining their culture and measuring it. It can be difficult to measure something that seems so intangible, but you can’t improve something that you can’t measure.
Companies often default to only using the metrics they can easily track: usage and satisfaction of company benefits and perks, retention, employee engagement, etc. But are these really metrics of company culture? How do you measure the true influences on your culture?
Join Gary Beckstrand, VP, and Alex Lovell, Manager of Research and Development, at the O.C. Tanner Institute as they share best practices in measuring the effectiveness of a company culture. Gary and Alex will walk through different methods for measuring your culture, which specific factors are most important to look at, and what types of questions you should be asking. They’ll also discuss the challenges of measuring culture and share stories of what successful companies have done to measure, and improve, their company cultures for maximum results.
Join Gary and Alex to:
- Learn the methods for measuring culture, both quantitative and qualitative
- See the most important culture factors to look at
- Discover the types of questions you should be asking about culture
- Understand the challenges and complexity of measuring culture
Leadership in human resources requires an understanding of the strategic initiatives and the ability to align organizational talent with success. Planning for the future needs of human capital is a key component to success as an HR executive.

We provide an introduction into how to leverage behavioural science to better understand not only the corporation’s stated values but also the lived values of employees. By assessing institutional and individuals values, we can ascribe a numeric “score” that measures the cultural alignment (and misalignment) within the workplace. As a result, HR professionals gain the intelligence they need to recruit, retain and engineer a highly-engaged, top-performing workforce.
Learn how quantifying corporate culture can benefit:
* Executives: Increasing company profitability & employee performance
* Managers: Maximizing employee engagement & workgroup productivity
* Employees: Understanding cultural fit & opportunities for advancement

Employee engagement is recognized as a critical driver of business performance yet most people and companies struggle to understand the concept and improve. Most of us want to spend our time doing a job that we love. We want to feel energized and passionate about how we contribute to the organization. We want to have a great day at work where we feel like we accomplished something and grew from the experience. All of these feelings are part of the concept of employee engagement. Yet most of us find it difficult to achieve this level of engagement on a regular basis. How do we make it happen?
Learn about the five simple keys to unlock the power of employee engagement in yourself and others.
How engaged are you in your work right now? Do you know what’s missing?
Employees and leaders intuitively know that when we find a place where we can throw our hearts, spirits, minds, and hearts into our work, we are happier, healthier, and produce better results. Yet, most struggle to understand exactly why we engage in some environments, and don't in others. Magic introduces the five MAGIC keys of employee engagement--Meaning, Autonomy, Growth, Impact, and Connection--and shows how leaders can help employees achieve higher levels of engagement, as well as how employees can be more successful by taking ownership for their own MAGIC.

Et si nous accueillions plutôt l’autre tel qu’il est et nous-mêmes tels que nous sommes. En quoi l’indicateur de personnalité MBTI peut nous aider sur ce chemin? Qu’est-ce qui est facile pour certains et plus difficile pour d’autres ? Comment reconnaitre ce à quoi nous nous accrochons ? Sur quoi nous appuyer pour continuer à agir sans nous inquiéter du résultat ?
Nous aborderons ensemble quelques pistes de réflexion sur ce thème en lien avec le MBTI.
By 2025, the biggest age group of employees is likely to be the over 50’s. People over 50 now make up nearly one-third (31%) of the entire UK workforce (up from 21% in the early 1990s*) and if growth continues at the current rate, will be the dominant group by 2025.
Now, more than ever, employers need to consider how we can address the issues and opportunities for older workers and the wider workforce. Just as enabling work+parenting has become a hygiene factor for employers, it’s now imperative to address work+carers.
The 50+ group often includes your senior talent and keepers of core knowledge and relationships. There are many further factors combining to make this a group worthy of some forward-planning: the baby boomer population bulge, increased longevity, more fluid retirement ages, more involved grandparents and changes to pensions (particularly for women). But whatever the reasons, the burning platform for employers is clear.
In this webinar, we’ll be sharing our experts’ experiences and opinions and showcasing best practice for employers.
Host and HR professional James Marsh will be joined by a range of employers, commentators and experts including Jennifer Liston-Smith, Director, Head of Coaching and Consultancy of My Family Care, and Deborah Richards, Diversity and Inclusion Leader at IBM.

Jennifer will be bringing a very broad perspective on the challenges for employers, and insights gained through her work with employers of different sizes and sectors.
Also joining the discussion will be Daniel Pike, Co-Founder of Supercarers and Caroline Waters OBE, Vice President of Carers UK. They will provide an overview of the changing landscape of care and do some future-gazing on the work and care front.
This webinar presented by School Transportation News and ROUSH CleanTech will focus on the cost-saving benefits afforded to school bus operations that switch to propane autogas, a clean-operating, domestically produced alternative fuel.

Stop chasing the wrong candidates and start engaging with the right ones -instantly. Instant pipelines of candidates who are interested in your company, are highly qualified and are the right fit for the team that they would work on, is the promise of Artificial Intelligence when applied to recruiting and talent acquistion tasks. Most recuriters use various mediums to search for that ideal or 'perfect' candidate. While selecting the right candidate is important, so is keeping time and cost-to-hire down.
The Eightfold Talent Intelligence Platform (TIP) predicts “what’s next” for candidates to allow companies to accelerate their hiring. It provides a guided research assistant to build more effective job descriptions and uses market data to understand what skills to look for in a role, and where the best candidates come from.

In July we will be celebrating 3 years of writing Boolean Strings together, every day, for pay. It’s crazy to think of how far we’ve come in such a short time. To begin, we talk about this data, every day, too. It’s a scale of sourcing that we, frankly, haven’t had the pleasure to do back when we were “internal corporate guys” in recruiting or TA.
In our LIVE webinar session we will speak to what we have learned from over 10,000 hours of Boolean search string development.
Diversity and inclusion drive innovation across organizations. Everyone in the HR field is turning to technology to solve the skills and diversity gaps within their organizations. Until now there has not been a solid solution to meet these demands.
Utilizing AI to hire and nurture talent can create a high performance organization and enable business outcomes. It can further assist socially conscious organizations to meet their strategic diversity-improvement goals. A robust AI platform applied to HR can develop a deep understanding of your organization and its goals which it then uses to create ideal profiles for each job/team/candidate based on skills, education, capabilities, experience and background.
Register for this webinar to:
- Learn how technology can help combat subconscious bias

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. What do they really need in the future…and how can succession planning be impacted by hiring just the right person. Candidates look for jobs in a new way, and the tools available to managers to screen candidates should be utilized. Technology can be a huge time saver in communicating with and evaluating candidates. Tools in background evaluation and personality assessment will be reviewed to help managers determine which are appropriate to bring into their recruiting process. We will provide participants with recommendations to determine starting salary and the proper preparation of the offer letter. 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.
·Options for filling the candidate pipeline
·Embracing technology while still creating a personal connection
·Utilizing pre-employment testing at the right time for the right results
·Development in background and credit check compliance
·Full cycle recruiting goes beyond the offer letter

Around half the population have a preference for Introversion, and yet Introverts are routinely misunderstood, misrepresented and excluded; less than a third of managers are Introverts, for example. In this webcast, John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP, will go through the stereotypes about Introverts, explain what Introversion actually is – and show how in neglecting the power of Introversion, organisations are missing out on a valuable resource. He will also reveal how all of us, even Extraverts, have an Introverted side – and how understanding and harnessing this can pay dividends.
Recent trends in the world of work are placing extraordinary demands on the ability of organizations to quickly evolve. Talent is at the heart of this evolution and is widely recognized as the key differentiator. Identifying and preparing high potentials is critical, but development programs need to focus on more than leadership. Making career development and mobility an integrated part of your process is the key to driving the most value from your pipeline development efforts.
This session will provide the following:
+ A research-based perspectives on this topic
+ A compelling value proposition for making it a priority
+ Best practice approaches, and examples
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. Yet some people find conflict exciting, energising, something that clears the air. We all have different approaches to conflict, and if we understood these, if we know how we usually react, we can flex our conflict style and achieve better outcomes. And maybe we can help others to do so too. John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP, discusses OPP’s research into conflict and introduces the TKI (Thomas Kilmann Conflict Mode Indicator) and shows how it can be used to create positive outcomes from conflict.
