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.
Managers manage work while leaders lead people. That may sound good, but what does it really mean in the day-to-day work that management-level employees do? Join me to talk about the differences and what they mean to your organization. Whether you're a titled leader, an HR business partner or an emerging leader, this workshop will give you some food for thought about how you are approaching your work.
The classic way of identifying, developing, testing and rolling out new technology relies on management to identify a bottleneck and set a deadline, product management to scope the issue and develop the requirements and then the development time “sprints” through an agile process to deliver the goods. Once the solution was rolled out, the employees suddenly had another process with which they had to comply.
Now, however, there is a better way. IT and development leaders can crowdsource roadblocks from their audience as well as their teams instead of guessing what to address, which will tell them exactly where technology can automate processes and solutions in order to make it easier for their employees. The result? Solutions employees actually need that are built the best for your organization.
Join Jeff Kunzelman, Chief Technology Officer at POPin, as he discusses how crowdsolving and automation can revolutionize your business. Specifically, expect to takeaway:
•Examination of past and current ways of handling development
•Identification of ways to avoid bottlenecks
•Examples of successful crowdsourcing
•Best practices for technology automation
•Solutions for employee-driven initiatives

The challenges our first responders face in an emergency are daunting--and the landscape is rapidly changing.

In New Orleans, we’ll explore the people, policies, tools, and technology that are fundamentally changing how our nation responds to disasters--and what they see happening next.

It is astonishing to think that as many as three quarters (75%) of professionals aged 25-34 already feel worn out by the type of work and the environment in which they work in. And as many as 57% of all professionals feel that way.
The threat of burnout is real and immediate. It is not reserved for middle age or later life. In fact, last year in the UK, younger workers took more days off work due to stress than older workers (roughly 65% of 16-24 young workers compared to only 24% of older workers).
In April 2017, Talking Talent conducted the study ‘working on burnout’ which looks to challenge all types of professional organisations to prioritise the importance of the wellbeing issues experienced by their employees in the workplace and at home. The research highlights the very real impact on individual and organisational performance when the subjective wellbeing of an employee is poor, and the risk of burnout is high.
In this webinar we’ll be sharing the findings and insightful commentary on what triggers burnout with professionals in UK businesses, identifying trends across family set-ups, industries and seniority of position, as well as offering key insights for employers on preventative approaches to burnout.
You’ll hear from Rob Bravo, Director of Wellbeing at Talking Talent and Sally Evans, Senior Manager - Talent, Inclusion & Wellbeing at PwC on successful strategies to support employee’s holistic wellbeing, as well as leading employer panellists and an industry expert sharing their experiences and perspectives.

We'll cover it all in this workshop, complete with take-away tools to get started.

People often associate stress with workload, but issues that arise outside work are often the biggest triggers and contributors to mental ill-health – troubled relationships, financial worries or family problems. We spend so much of our time working that it’s almost inevitable we cannot leave our problems at the office door.
But is it fair for employers to ask questions about individuals’ personal circumstances? And is it appropriate or practical to offer support?
A range of wellbeing experts and HR practitioners explore these issues, debate best practice and provide practical guidance on a number of topics which could include:
•Types of stress and how they manifest at work.
•The implications of stress at work, and why work-life balance is an increasingly anachronistic idea.
•Ways of dealing with stress – should employers be proactive or stay out of it?
•How to equip employees to deal with stress at work (i.e Neyber)

Traditional one-on-one executive/leadership coaching has proven to be a highly effective tool in developing talent for the ever-increasing challenges in organizations. But the traditional approach is not the ONLY way to use coaching.
Development of your most promising employees earlier in their careers is necessary if we are to have the leaders required for companies to compete in the future. Large classroom training alone isn’t getting results quickly enough for this emerging talent pool and is not focused specifically on what individuals need. Pulling coaching into the “development mix” moves companies in the right direction… but it has to be configured properly for the audience.
Please join us in conversation as we welcome Sharon A. Johnson, Director, Executive Development at Nationwide where they are incorporating creative approaches to development by adding “right-sized” coaching elements to various leader development programs and getting results.

By surveying more than 400 global business executives, we have prescriptively gleaned the top trends in succession planning and management. In fact, you will walk away better understanding what is the single most important determinant of organizational success, profitability, longevity and growth, and what you can do to optimize and unleash it in your own organization!
