  • Jobscience's VP Product & Technology, Jan Schiffman, stops to provide his technology point of view on the trend known as the consumerization of the enterprise.

    #1 What does the consumerization of the enterprise mean?
    #2 Is this a one way relationship or mutually beneficial?

  • We spend a lot of time and effort finding and identifying talented individuals. But do we understand what makes a talented team? In a time when more and more work is carried out by teams, groups and networks this is a significant question. And the answer might surprise you. While individual talent or ability is always an important consideration, it is today a smaller variable in a larger equation.

    When it comes to decision making, problem solving and innovation, individual IQ, for example, is a horribly inaccurate predictor of group ability. This helps put your talent focus where it needs to be — on the group.
  • Our leaders are asked to increase accountability and employee engagement, but many do not have the skills and experience needed to achieve these goals. Accountability and engagement are linked, but are also entirely unique. When changes and other challenges cause reductions in these performance systems, many managers and leaders are left to compensate for imbalances on their own terms.

    During this webinar, Lisa Haneberg, author of 13 books, will share a simple but game-changing model for accountability and engagement and share ways you can help your leaders develop the skills and confidence they need to optimize both.
  • If you were looking to optimize your personal health and fitness, would you do so without stepping on the scale? Probably not. So why, then, do we not measure, track and evaluate business performance using HR metrics? No matter if your business is a high-performing organization or start-up, there is always an opportunity to measure and improve human capital performance and expectations through relevant data capture and analytic methods.

    In this presentation, Joey Price, CEO and HR Consultant of Jumpstart:HR will discuss the necessity of incorporating HR metrics in your talent management evaluation and overall strategic business goals.
  • As MBTI practitioners, we often meet people who are sceptical about the instrument’s potential and credibility as a development tool. Criticisms can range from saying that the tool is nothing more than a horoscope that puts people in unrealistic boxes, to it being based on out-of-date theory and lacking any evidence of reliability and validity.

    In this 30 minute webcast OPP practitioners and researchers (and Chartered Psychologists) John Hackston and Rob Bailey discuss the basis for these challenges, why they don’t hold up and how you can respond to them.
