Enterprise growth requires executive leadership involvement when it comes to changing the culture, focus, or services an organization offers. To be successful, the growth strategy must focus on many things at once, including people. Every aspect of the organization has to work together, and here’s where HR’s role is crucial. Whether it’s a new product, or a shift in competitive focus, HR is intrinsic to helping the company stay competitive.
HR’s role in driving the success of the organization includes a number of factors. HR must ensure the administrative function of the organization are handled, but must focus attention on the important role of sharing the culture and vision of the organization. Internal and external relationships will help shape the HR function, as well as your career.
In order to drive enterprise growth and achieve optimal business results, HR and the leadership team must get on the same page and keep communications open. But, how can you do this?

Existing methods are not up to the challenges of talent in 2020. Organizations can’t find enough good people. And finding people is challenging enough; finding the right people even more challenging; and keeping them not easy either.
You've heard of AI, but don't know exactly what it is, as well as if it can help with these challenges.
In this webinar, you’ll see how embedding AI into the employee lifecycle, starting with the candidate experience, could dramatically improve the way people are hired, trained, and managed. Adapting AI has helped leading organizations achieve a 35 percent decrease in time-to-hire, 50 percent more requisitions managed per recruiter, and an 81 percent increase in internal hires, among other benefits.
Join this webinar to learn about using AI for:
— Making career sites more personal
— Finally improving the “candidate experience”
— Allowing recruiters to match jobs with people, based on job candidates' skills (not just the job they have now)
— Giving people growth opportunities instead of having them quit
— Improving diversity
Host Julia Streets is joined by BBC presenter Jane Hill and partnership and sponsorship consultant Polly Shute discuss the lack of visibility of gay women in society. They consider why LGBTQ+ networks are failing to support and represent the female members of their community, addressing the central question, 'Where are the women?' This wide ranging discussion explores the connotations around language, how identity has changed over time, the reality of the double glass ceiling, what support rising executives need and how corporate and LGBTQ+ networks can become more effective for women, in terms of both gender and intersectional balance. In this episode recorded during LGBTQ+ History Month in the UK, the discussion charts the changes and progress of Pride, Diva Media Group's plans for Lesbian Visibility Week and how organisations can get involved.

Engagement is a performance problem. The answer could transform your organization.
Economies may be growing but our productivity (and our engagement) is not keeping pace. It doesn't matter how many yoga classes you put on or how much free fruit you supply: tinkering at the edges won’t get people engaging with their jobs.
Discover new ways of measuring, tracking and acting on employee engagement. We’ll offer insights into how your people feel about their jobs; talk about how to support and develop energy, purpose and immersion; and explain why engaged employees offer more in terms of productivity and profitability. Backed by the latest psychological thinking and with metrics designed to help you get the most from your people, this is employee engagement designed with a clear focus on performance, both from a task and a team perspective.
Join us and unpick the connection between good performance management and effective, business-focused employee engagement. We’ll share the metrics that link the two, discuss the tech that supports them and reveal where the ultimate responsibility for this lies. We’ll discuss the research that underpins our thinking, and explain why workplace engagement, more than any other single factor, is the best predictor of sustainable performance.
Stuart Hearn is the founder and CEO of Clear Review, the UK’s fastest-growing performance management and employee engagement software business. Ian MacRae is a workplace psychologist and the managing director of High Performance Psychology. They’ll be sharing their insights and research and answering questions on the new state of employee engagement and how employers can use this essential metric to create high-performing individuals and teams in the 21st century workplace.

- Why silos may be causing you to lose high potential talent
- What to do about silos that have become a problem
- Ways to build cross-functional collaboration
Don't wait until it's too late. Assess and address your silo situations before they divide your business any more.

Forward-looking businesses are increasingly recognising the vital importance of an equally forward-looking learning strategy. It’s no longer a luxury; L&D is rapidly being recognised as a major driver that can boost engagement, staff retention, and business results.
This is certainly the case for Kitchen and homeware business Lakeland, who wanted to bring their whole business together in one space and help drive communication between their teams . After adopting Fuse’s mobile-first Integrated Learning Platform, Lakeland saw their engagement rate soar to 75.8%.
This major shift from creating resources instead of courses has been a winning strategy for Lakeland. But how did they do it?
That’s just what they’ll be sharing. In this webinar, you’ll learn:
• How Lakeland have brought their community and people together by opening up communications
• Their sharing of best practices – how a great idea in one store is shared quickly across their retail network to maximise opportunities for increasing sales
• The power and value of user-generated content from Lakeland’s own passionate experts
• How better product knowledge and content lets Lakeland sell products through stories rather than features
In fact, webinar is probably the wrong term for this – in reality, this will be a live interactive case study about how Lakeland are working to deliver real behavioural changes and break down the barriers to digital adoption. Their employees had always wanted to share knowledge; now they can and do.

One question to consider as you think about whether to put effort and investment into employee engagement: "Is engagement worth the effort and investment we put into it?"

During this webinar we'll share the best methods for preparing, administering, and rolling out the results from your employee engagement survey based on over 20 years of experience conducting surveys around the world. We'll also identify the most common mistakes organizations make when conducting an employee engagement survey and how to avoid them.

Businesses think of freelancers as a quick way to alleviate issues and tasks that their team doesn’t have the bandwidth for. More often than not, when working with a financial freelancer, decision-makers can often encounter feelings of hesitancy, fear, and distrust creeping in before the work even gets started. This webinar identifies the areas that are often the hardest for businesses to navigate when working with financial freelancers to ensure you are making the most of your newly contracted relationship.
• Clarity in communication is the key when it comes to building trust with a third-party.

Tales from a female AI entrepreneur, capital raising, data bias, the ‘heroine’s journey’ and practical ways men can support
In this episode host Julia Streets interviews Dr Catriona Wallace, a leading authority in artificial intelligence and Founder & Executive Director of fintech firm Flamingo.AI, the second only woman-led businesses ever to list on the Australian Stock Exchange.
Recorded from Dr Wallace’s boardroom, we explore diversity and AI bias, war stories from her capital raising experience, Dr Wallace’s ‘Heroine’s Journey’ laying out the important stages of the female lifespan and what they mean for men and women alike, offering practical tips for ‘good men’ in supporting gender inclusion.
At a time when New South Wales is in the midst of raging bushfires, Dr Wallace shares profoundly personal experiences of the destruction of millions of hectares of farmland in Australia – including her own – and the role that disruptive technologies can play to tackle climate change.
We think this is a perfectly (and deliberately) timed episode for the holiday season: ideal for road trips; family discussions and general downtime, as much of this conversation challenges us to think about the financial services D&I discussion more deeply and beyond into the reality of our world at large.
We hope you enjoy this episode and from us all, thank you for all your support. We wish you all a very happy and healthy festive season and look forward to returning with more interviews with industry leaders next year. Thank you for listening.

There are so many buzzwords that are floating around the HR/Recruitment world. War on Talent, Candidate Experience, Employee Experience, that is can be tough to understand and sift through what really counts.
So, what about Candidate Experience? Does it really matter? In short yes, it is a critical part of how a company can recruit and yes, retain talent. From the moment you connect with a candidate you are building a life long relationship with that person, whether you hire them or not. Candidates do not expect to get every job they apply or connect to; however, they are quick to remember a poor experience. Creating a strong candidate experience (i.e. it’s not the 90’s or even the 2010’s anymore) is critical to a strong recruitment or talent acquisition strategy.
In this webinar you will understand what it means to have a strong candidate experience, how to up your candidate experience (and believe it or not – it’s not as difficult or expensive as you think) and be aware of some of the pitfalls you can avoid that can inadvertently be giving your company a bad reputation.

Research (published by LSE, London School of Economics) suggests there is stronger evidence for the impact of childcare and in-work benefits on closing the gender pay gap, than there is for parental leave and pay policies. OECD evidence also suggests affordable quality childcare is the main driver in achieving better female labour market participation outcomes.
What are leading employers doing to make it easier for talented and experienced working parents to ‘have it all’? How do you keep career on track and yet be the parent you want to be? And is helping with childcare the glaringly obvious solution that employers might be overlooking?
By April 2020, we’ll have data from three rounds of Gender Pay Gap reporting. It’s clear that truly closing the gap will take decades to achieve and there are some home truths in the data: it’s not an homogenous picture. The gender pay gap among all full-time employees stands at 8.9%, little changed from 2018 while for age groups under 30 years, the gender pay gap for full-time employees is now close to zero. It is at childbearing years that the gap sets in and never closes.
At 72% the female employment rate in 2019 was the highest seen since comparable records began in 1971 (52.8%) and yet, as the recent Government Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy consultation document on Family Support summed it up: ‘Women who have children are more likely to: leave employment; reduce their hours of work; move into lower paid roles; and move into roles which are not commensurate with their qualifications and experience. In short, it appears that mothers are trading-off pay and career progression for increased flexibility.’
Join James Marsh, our panel of employers and thought leaders including Denise Priest, Director of Employer and Strategic Partnerships at Bright Horizons, for an insightful and lively discussion.
What is it, really, that sets the best supervisors apart from the rest? And what would it take to BE that supervisor, the one that everyone wants to work for and never wants to leave?
You can be that manager. It's easier than you think to engage, motivate, inspire, and win the hearts and minds of team members. In this presentation, you'll discover how to:
-- Manage work AND lead people so you are more effective
-- Do the little things that add up to strong employee engagement
-- Reallocate your time to the tasks that have the right impact
-- Leverage your strengths for connecting with people
-- Access resources and training for ongoing skills development
It all boils down to simple behavioral choices that anyone can make. The first choice is attending this presentation so you can get started right away!
Your technical expertise will only take you so far. In every job, there comes a time when the functional knowledge and experience just aren't enough to get the job done. That's why you need soft skills, too. Join me to learn about:
-- What are "soft skills" any way and why do I need to work on this?
-- The impact it can make when managers have strong soft skills
-- How to develop soft skills (no matter what your personality type!)
-- When and where your soft skills will come in handy
Become a more well-rounded leader by developing yourself, not just your expertise.
I once had a boss who said "I give you a paycheck. That's all the recognition you need." He was missing the point. No one NEEDS recognition... But, studies show, most people do a better job when they get it!
In this presentation, we'll cover:
-- The basics of when, where, why and how to show gratitude and to recognize employees
-- The risks of rewards (yes, they can backfire!)
-- The business case for creating a culture of encouragement
-- Myths about Millennials and what they expect
-- What research says about employee recognition
Don't worry. We're going to cover more than the kumbayah and fluffy stuff in this one!
The war for talent is heating up. Employees have options, and they just aren't as loyal as they used to be. But there is something you can do, something that will improve your rates of retention and stabilize your workforce.
It's all about creating a better employee experience. It doesn't have to be outrageously expensive or terribly time-consuming. You just need the secret sauce that will help you to:
-- Boost employee engagement
-- Create a workplace culture that fosters a sense of belonging
-- Ennoble and enable employees
That may sound like an elusive fantasy. But it's not. Tune in to find out how you (yes, YOU) can improve the employee experience in your workplace.
I don't like it. I don't think it works. And I have yet to hear a single example of its effective, objective application. The 9-Box Model for reviewing talent and for succession management is NOT all it's cracked up to be. If you're using the 9-box model, tune in for a contrarian opinion about:
-- Ranking people as hi po/ hi per and using this in business decisions
-- The unintended consequences of ranking people at all
-- Why your 9-box model isn't really helping you develop bench strength
-- The added dangers if your process isn't completely transparent
And, yes, we'll also talk about alternatives that make more sense for effective succession management, talent development, retention, engagement, and other human capital needs inside your organization.
The habits and traits that make you so effective in your current role may not translate well in a next-level job... or maybe you've already taken that next-level job and can't figure out why things aren't working out. It may be time for a re-set. Tune in for this presentation to learn more about:
-- the 12 classic career roadblocks and blindspots that can trip you up
-- what works on the front line but doesn't work in management
-- what managers need to leave behind when they become executives
-- the impact of toxicity in supervisory and management level roles
You'll also get access to a free tool with practical tips you can use right away if any of the toxic warning signs show up for you.
