HR webinar: Retaining women in engineering, science and technology
My Family Care and An Inspirational Journey talk to leading engineering and technology companies to explore and understand their successful approaches.
Only about 8%* of engineers in the UK are women and both the lack of female graduates and the loss of skilled women from engineering remain pressing concerns in this profession which continues to experience a strong gender imbalance. Other science and technology sectors face similar challenges.
Jennifer Liston-Smith, My Family Care Director of Coaching & Consultancy and Heather Jackson, CEO and founder of An Inspirational Journey, are joined by Sue Cooper, HRD UK & Europe of Atkins and Joanna Hodgson, Industries & Business Development Technical Leader, Europe & UK of IBM. They’ll be having an in-depth discussion about the issues, challenges and solutions to retaining women.
Many companies now embrace the need and business case for supporting working parents and carers with policies and practices from flexible working to practical help with care. But research and experience show a critical success factor is the capability of managers.
A ‘good’ line manager can be decisive in how employees combine work and family and keep career on track. But the lot of the line manager is not an easy one. Managers face conflicts and challenges in delivering demanding business targets, managing diverse teams and implementing family friendly policies. With the right to request flexible working opening to all employees from 30th June and Shared Parental Leave in effect for babies due in April 2015, they have even more on their plates than ever before.
Enabling managers to manage these people issues well is often overlooked in organisations. In the research and surveys that My Family Care has carried out over recent years, many employees cite that interpretation and application of policy vary widely (and unfairly) across organisations depending on individual managers’ personal circumstances and values, disposition, management style and understanding of the level of freedom they have to interpret policy.
•Some of the common issues managers face
•How organisations can get to grips with the needs of their managers
•Options and solutions you can implement internally
•Services, resources and solutions My Family Care provides

Unquestionably, talent retention is not just about mums any more. With Shared Parental Leave in place parents have greater flexibility than ever about how they ‘mix and match’ care of their children.

The discussion will be covering:
• What do fathers actually want and need from their employers?

• What happens if we ignore dads and focus only on mums?
• How do we take this forward: what does best practice look like?

The traditional performance management approach of ratings and annual appraisals is under fire, and rightly so. But what do you do instead?
This webinar is a shortened version of my all day workshop at December’s CIPD Performance Management Conference and will look at an alternative approach where you will learn about...
· The wider performance system operating in your organisation.
· A diagnostics tool to discover the levers to pull to change the system.
· Capability, and how to view it in a new way to improve future performance
· The real role managers should play in performance management.
This talk will present emerging findings from CIPD research into performance management and the impact it has on employee behaviour and organisation performance, based on a review of relevant data and existing research findings. The talk will look at how common systems of performance management are, when performance management can have positive effects, when it can have negative effects and what this means for practitioners.
The emergence of Generation Z – those aged 19 and under – means that there are four distinct demographic groups that make up today’s workforce. In addition to Generation Z, there are Baby Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y.
The challenge facing all senior management is how best to create innovative working environments that cater for each group’s needs and thereby create a culture that promotes collaboration, information sharing and productivity.
Innovation and productivity are crucial to business growth. To achieve this, organisations must navigate a new world of work by touching on all aspects of information mobility – from the technologies that are revolutionising the way that people collaborate and connect, to the way information is harnessed to power big ideas.
The traditional analogue way of doing things is no longer a sustainable strategy. Forward-thinking organisations have recognised that a strategy to support digital business transformation is essential for success.
In this webinar we identify the key components of a workstyle innovation strategy that can help all organisations to create working environments that enhance collaboration and productivity.

More and more organizations are relying on the use of contingent and project-based labor to complement their permanent workforce. The increased use has stemmed from a variety of factors including economic uncertainty, skill shortages, and individuals choosing to enter the workforce through alternative methods. With the upward trend of contingent and project-based labor usage and regulatory changes across the globe, it is imperative that organizations have full visibility into all classifications of their workforce.
This webcast will explore the evolution of Vendor Management Systems (VMS) and current trends associated with the Vendor Management System. Simply put, VMS is the software that automates the hiring process of contract workers. It is often an Internet-enabled, Web-based application that helps to manage and procure staffing services from requisition to billing and reviewing. Most VMS tools are delivered through a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model. VMS tools provide significant improvements in reporting and analytics capabilities that far outperform manual systems and processes. VMS tools are typically operated externally by an MSP (managed service provider), by the VOP (vendor on premise) or internally within an organization by a VMO (vendor management office).
A VMS is implemented to reduce costs, enforce policy and improve the quality of contingent and project based labor programs. You will discover how the workforce is changing across the board in terms of demographics, headcount, strategy, and cost management. Learn how your contingent labor can be divided into four key areas to better help manage your workforce. In this webcast, you will review the different improvement models and discuss how to begin building a business case.
