Happy employees make productive employees.

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.
On top of every organization’s to-do list is improving culture. Companies want to create workplace cultures that retain, engage, and attract employees, and they want to see the results of their efforts. But they also struggle with defining their culture and measuring it. It can be difficult to measure something that seems so intangible, but you can’t improve something that you can’t measure.
Companies often default to only using the metrics they can easily track: usage and satisfaction of company benefits and perks, retention, employee engagement, etc. But are these really metrics of company culture? How do you measure the true influences on your culture?
Join Gary Beckstrand, VP, and Alex Lovell, Manager of Research and Development, at the O.C. Tanner Institute as they share best practices in measuring the effectiveness of a company culture. Gary and Alex will walk through different methods for measuring your culture, which specific factors are most important to look at, and what types of questions you should be asking. They’ll also discuss the challenges of measuring culture and share stories of what successful companies have done to measure, and improve, their company cultures for maximum results.
Join Gary and Alex to:
- Learn the methods for measuring culture, both quantitative and qualitative
- See the most important culture factors to look at
- Discover the types of questions you should be asking about culture
- Understand the challenges and complexity of measuring culture

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.
Learn how quantifying corporate culture can benefit:
* Executives: Increasing company profitability & employee performance
* Managers: Maximizing employee engagement & workgroup productivity

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.

Before you can successfully recruit and retain diverse candidates, it's imperative to create a culture of belonging. We've learned this through our own experience here at Lever, and so have several other leaders.
In this short video, we asked leaders at Lyft, Netflix and GoDaddy to share how they've built their inclusive, widely revered cultures. Watch now to learn what they told us!
Productivity is pretty much the holy grail in recruiting. With interviews to run, hiring managers to wrangle, and sourcing outreach to personalize, it’s vital to do a lot with a little bit of time.
So, how do you reach that high level of efficiency? You learn from teams who are leveraging the right shortcuts to get results.
The team at Medallia is one such team. In two quarters, they doubled recruiting coordinator productivity, scheduling twice as many interviews as before. Then, after doubling down on their sourcing strategies, they increased sourced hires by a whopping 177 percent. And they haven’t stopped there.
Join us alongside two leaders on Medallia’s team to learn their secrets for success. Head of Talent Operations Molly Stark and Talent Coordination Lead Chiara Moore will break down 5 tactics that have helped them double their recruiting productivity.
Tune in to learn:
* Why automation tools are vital to improve productivity
* How the Medallia team got rid of Google sheets to streamline their hiring
* The keys to improving your candidate engagement and conversion rates
* The returns you’ll get by investing in talent already in your pipeline
* And much more!

MBTI and other business psychology practitioners hold a lot of information on their clients, much of it of a sensitive nature addressing issues from performance data to aspects of personality profiles, and therefore are disproportionately affected by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This will not be a legalistic presentation but practical session with time for Q&A to provide an appreciation of how it could affect our professional lives.
Imagine leading a team that is highly multicultural or multigenerational. Or a team that is largely offline, remote, or working in diverse locations—perhaps where the opportunity for raises and promotions seem slim due to company structure or the economy, or where employees don’t feel inspired by the company’s underlying purpose or reason for being?
Is it possible to build a workplace culture where every employee feels inspired by and connected to the company’s purpose? Where each team member is actively working to improve the company because they feel a sense of belonging and feed off all the possibilities to make a difference that the company’s strategy represents?
It is, if you can build trust, provide opportunities to grow and develop skills, and empower employees to do great work and be successful in their own unique ways. It starts by aligning employees’ work to company goals and giving purpose to their work. Then make sure employees have a voice, empower them to lead the way, and encourage them to be innovative.
When companies take steps toward thriving workplace cultures, they see dramatic improvements in employee engagement, innovation, retention and business performance. Just ask Gary Peterson, Executive Vice President of Supply Chain and Production, at O.C. Tanner. He was able to transform a manufacturing workforce that struggled with engagement and collaboration into a culture where employees innovate, succeed, and celebrate together.
Join Gary as he shares best practices and strategies on using purpose and opportunity to create a great place to work.
During the webinar, you’ll:
- Learn how to provide employees with purpose and opportunities to grow and develop even when promotions and pay raises aren’t available.
- Gain best practices in empowering employees to innovate and do great work.
- See a case study and results of these efforts on employee engagement, retention, and innovation.
Engagement is a learned competency. Join with us as we discuss how managers and leaders in your organization can learn to be engaged and engage their team members. Learn specific values that are associated with the engagement competencies and explore DecisionWise's new Engaging Leader Assessment.

This conversation features women in tech who have benefited from receiving and giving mentoring, but it's really for anyone who is looking for a hand up or to offer one. Our experts will talk about importance of mentoring — though that it's not for everyone — how to find the right mentor and mentee for you, and how it's an important part of building a career in tech.
So grab your cuppa and join the conversation for the second episode of WIT: Women in Tech! We are talking to four awesome women in tech -- Tammy Bütow, SRE (site reliability engineering) and chaos engineering specialist at Gremlin; Charity Majors, database reliability engineering and CEO and engineer at Honeycomb.io; Ana Medina, freelance SRE, infrastructure, and chaos engineering (formerly Uber); and Prima Virani, senior security engineer at Marqueta.
Their jobs in systems stability, observability, and reliability engineering benefit from a wealth of experience working with and securing those systems. But you usually have to have already worked with those systems to then be able to get jobs working with those systems -- a struggle for any junior-level job, but a particularly strong one in the tech space. This is where mentoring comes in. Each of these awesome women has benefited from being mentored and benefit from giving back and mentoring.
Join us (or sign up to listen to the recording later) to learn the best way to find a mentor or mentee/mentoree and how to leverage that relationship so you're both getting the most out of it. You'll learn about informal and formal guilds that support that mentoring, and what companies should do to facilitate these benefits. And you'll hear personal stories from these women who have built solid careers in tech on the shoulders of experience and support.
The workplace is changing fast and new radical developments are just around the corner, This webinar will explore the future of the workforce and how HR professionals can prepare their organisations for this brave new world.

We all want to say “I love my job!” but it’s not a magic wish. Job satisfaction is something you have to design into your daily life, from your work choices to your profile to your networks. This episode we sit down for a cup and conversation with Mia Sherman from the popular Escape the City (https://www.escapethecity.org/) job transformation coaching in London and New York, and two women who have successfully redesigned happiness at work.
This episode we'll learn the stories and ask questions of two fabulous female entrepreneurs: Vix Anderton, talking about her journey from an Royal Air Force intelligence officer to building a portfolio career and her own company The Practical Balance (thepracticalbalance.com), a platform to promote the wellbeing and mental health of founders; and Luzana Costa, talking about her purposeful pivot from the oil and gas industry to working with a couple of social enterprises in Angola and a crowdfunding company for social enterprises here in London, and working full time with tech startups -- plus check out her inspiring blog: A Woman about the World (https://medium.com/woman-about-the-world) Both women are heavily dedicated to empowering diversity.

By 2025, the biggest age group of employees is likely to be the over 50’s. People over 50 now make up nearly one-third (31%) of the entire UK workforce (up from 21% in the early 1990s*) and if growth continues at the current rate, will be the dominant group by 2025.
Now, more than ever, employers need to consider how we can address the issues and opportunities for older workers and the wider workforce. Just as enabling work+parenting has become a hygiene factor for employers, it’s now imperative to address work+carers.
The 50+ group often includes your senior talent and keepers of core knowledge and relationships. There are many further factors combining to make this a group worthy of some forward-planning: the baby boomer population bulge, increased longevity, more fluid retirement ages, more involved grandparents and changes to pensions (particularly for women). But whatever the reasons, the burning platform for employers is clear.
In this webinar, we’ll be sharing our experts’ experiences and opinions and showcasing best practice for employers.
Host and HR professional James Marsh will be joined by a range of employers, commentators and experts including Jennifer Liston-Smith, Director, Head of Coaching and Consultancy of My Family Care, and Deborah Richards, Diversity and Inclusion Leader at IBM. Deborah will share insights into how multiple diversity award winner, IBM approaches supporting carers in the workplace. Jennifer will be bringing a very broad perspective on the challenges for employers, and insights gained through her work with employers of different sizes and sectors.
Also joining the discussion will be Daniel Pike, Co-Founder of Supercarers and Caroline Waters OBE, Vice President of Carers UK. They will provide an overview of the changing landscape of care and do some future-gazing on the work and care front.

Recruiting has to be more then just filling a vacant position – and retaining top talent is all about making the right selection to begin with. Managers need to look at the scope of the role – and how that may have changed since the last person held the position. What do they really need in the future…and how can succession planning be impacted by hiring just the right person. Candidates look for jobs in a new way, and the tools available to managers to screen candidates should be utilized. Technology can be a huge time saver in communicating with and evaluating candidates. Tools in background evaluation and personality assessment will be reviewed to help managers determine which are appropriate to bring into their recruiting process. We will provide participants with recommendations to determine starting salary and the proper preparation of the offer letter. Finally, our discussion will conclude with the tools to identify top talent and ensure they are aligned with the long-term success of your organization.
·Options for filling the candidate pipeline
·Embracing technology while still creating a personal connection
·Utilizing pre-employment testing at the right time for the right results
·Development in background and credit check compliance
·Full cycle recruiting goes beyond the offer letter
