    When you’re developing and refining a proposition, it can be easy to focus simply on what most people need and and how you can provide it as quickly and cost efficiently as possible. The 80/20 rule right?

    Those involved in start ups are in the unique position of being able to re-write the rule book. They can be unconstrained within their design process by traditional corporate boundaries and move beyond something that works for most, to something that is both inclusive and extraordinary.

    In this live webinar, I’ll share some of the key techniques we used to develop AnyGood? as a proposition that was “Diverse By Design”. This not only resulted in us having a far more ethical proposition, but one that was more desirable too.

    If you’re in an early stage start up, or are in a larger organisation and have a proposition that’s being developed and refined, tune in and I’ll share my learnings.

  • Effective Onboarding drives better Performance Management
    Effective Onboarding drives better Performance Management Sri Chellappa, President-Engagely, Joseph Hammett - Partnerships-HRCloud Recorded: Mar 22 2018 15 mins
    When we profess performance matters, are we communicating that every step of the way starting with step 1-Onboarding?

    Organizations tend to focus on Performance Management for employees once the employee is onboarded and warmed up to the workplace. However, performance management starts on day 1. During the onboarding process not only an employee is introduced to the people and processes, they are really introduced to the performance culture you have. An effective onboarding process will provide a conduit to set the right expectation, orientation and tools to start the relationship on the right foot.

    In this webinar we will discuss how tools like HRCloud and Engagedly can work seamlessly to provide a delightful and effective onboarding experience and actively engage the employee on day 1. We will learn some best practices on driving the culture of performance driven in every step, from being a new hire to an employee.

    Is Threat Hunting the Next Frontier: Separating the Hype from the Reality Dr. James Stanger Chief Technology Evangelist, CompTIA May 3 2018 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    One of the more interesting-sounding job skills today is that of the “threat hunter.” Let’s talk about the activity of “threat hunting,” and deconstruct it a little bit. The idea behind threat hunting is to proactively look for adversaries and for traces of their activity. So, is threat hunting all that it’s cracked up to be? Is looking for trouble really the best approach today? It’s very possible that the one key element of threat hunting is one fundamental assumption: That you’ve already been hacked, but you just don’t quite realize it yet. In this presentation, James will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of “active defense,” and where it fits in with other security activities.

    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.
