    How to Use Behavioral Science to Attract Top-Performing Candidates
    Companies today are challenged with managing a five generation, multinational workforce. Uniting this workforce to high levels of collaboration where individual insights and expertise are embraced and valued is a competitive advantage yet to be realized.
    Using a behavioral science approach, we provide the tools to help you measure and assess individual social impact values and how these values align with your company culture. As a result, you’ll be able to attract a more diverse, high-performing pool of candidates.

    Case studies will be provided that demonstrate the use of values-based data to:
    - Decrease unconscious bias during the recruitment process
    - Reveal each individual’s unique set of motivations, as well as social and engagement preferences
    - Engineer a highly-engaged and productive workforce

  • Creative Interviewing - Thinking Beyond the Question
    Creative Interviewing - Thinking Beyond the Question Lori Kleiman, Owner, HR Topics Recorded: Jul 12 2018 32 mins
    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.

    In this webinar, you will learn:
    ·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

  • The Battle for Older Talent - Best practice to support 50+
    The Battle for Older Talent - Best practice to support 50+ James Marsh, HRr; Jennifer Liston-Smith, MFC; Deborah Richards, IBM; Daniel Pike, Supercarers; Caroline Waters, Carers UK Recorded: Jun 28 2018 63 mins
    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.

  • Engagement MAGIC-Five Keys to Unlock the Power of Employee Engagement
    Engagement MAGIC-Five Keys to Unlock the Power of Employee Engagement Charles Rogel and Tim Hicks Recorded: Jun 26 2018 59 mins
    Employee engagement is recognized as a critical driver of business performance yet most people and companies struggle to understand the concept and improve. Most of us want to spend our time doing a job that we love. We want to feel energized and passionate about how we contribute to the organization. We want to have a great day at work where we feel like we accomplished something and grew from the experience. All of these feelings are part of the concept of employee engagement. Yet most of us find it difficult to achieve this level of engagement on a regular basis. How do we make it happen?

    Learn about the five simple keys to unlock the power of employee engagement in yourself and others.
    How engaged are you in your work right now? Do you know what’s missing?

    Employees and leaders intuitively know that when we find a place where we can throw our hearts, spirits, minds, and hearts into our work, we are happier, healthier, and produce better results. Yet, most struggle to understand exactly why we engage in some environments, and don't in others. Magic introduces the five MAGIC keys of employee engagement--Meaning, Autonomy, Growth, Impact, and Connection--and shows how leaders can help employees achieve higher levels of engagement, as well as how employees can be more successful by taking ownership for their own MAGIC.
  • Exploring Unconscious Bias
    Exploring Unconscious Bias Ceil Tilney & Curt Grayson, Right Management Recorded: Jun 21 2018 56 mins
    Effective leaders create high-trust cultures for their organizations and teams. People who are confident their leaders will treat them and their ideas without bias bring their best to work every day.

  • Diversity and Overcoming Pay Gaps in the Modern Workplace
    Diversity and Overcoming Pay Gaps in the Modern Workplace Jennifer Riggins Aug 8 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    What are you doing to make sure your office is diverse and welcoming? Diversity in the work environment is proven to promote acceptance, respect, and teamwork, embracing differences in race, age, gender, native language, political beliefs, religion, sexual orientation, and communication styles among employees. Movements like #metoo has us talking about this more in certain industries and at a systemic level, but what can we do as individuals in the workplace? Grab your drink and sit down to join us for what's sure to be an engaging episode of WIT: Women in Touch, when women trying to make a change are going to share their advice for how you can too, whether you are in a position to attract and hire talent or you are struggling to overcome these barriers. And, once diversity is increased at your office or university, what can you do to make it work?

    Why should you join? Let's start with some facts because the status quo is unacceptable:
    April 10 marks Equal Pay Day for women in the US (the infamous 78 cents on the dollar), but we are choosing to hold our discussion on diversity and pay gaps on August 8, following Equal Pay Day for black women in the US.
    Women in tech make on average $40,000 less a year than their male counterparts. Women of color in tech in particular often lack the support channels and feel ostracized in their roles.

    This discussion is in part a follow-up to our first episode which focused on the Working Mom. Mothers end up earning about 40% less than what their childless female counterparts earn over a lifetime. The pay gap between white women and black women is the fastest growing income inequality there is, according to a report by the Economic Policy Institute. This gap has grown from 6% in 1979 to 19% today, and it's growing directly alongside greater inequality.

    The main reason to join is this isn't just an esoteric conversation, but a practical one that gives everyone practical ways to make a change, no matter what her or his role is.

  • Growing Importance of Tech Ethics and the Modern Workforce
    Growing Importance of Tech Ethics and the Modern Workforce Jennifer Riggins Aug 22 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    80% of developers don’t feel it’s their responsibility if unethical products go live. Are they right?

    This episode of WIT: Women in Touch features a conversation among women in tech who believe this majority is not right. As a follow up to July's Coed: Ethics conference, a London tech ethics conference, we are grabbing a cuppa and sitting down with women who are actively working on the ethics surrounding data science, decision making, scaling, coding, the psychology and motivation behind it all, and so much more!

    Who should join? While our guests are awesome women in tech, the cases of Facebook, Uber, and Volkswagen are not just isolated incidents and everyone at any level at any company faces ethical decisions every day. We think everyone can benefit from joining this discussion live or listening to the recording after!
  • What’s your conflict style?
    What’s your conflict style? John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP with Helen Rayner, Lead Consultant Aug 23 2018 8:00 am UTC 30 mins
    All of us have experienced conflict at some point, at home, at work, maybe at school or elsewhere – and usually it is seen as a bad thing, something that is disruptive when it comes to the workplace. Yet some people find conflict exciting, energising, something that clears the air. We all have different approaches to conflict, and if we understood these, if we know how we usually react, we can flex our conflict style and achieve better outcomes. And maybe we can help others to do so too. John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP, discusses OPP’s research into conflict and introduces the TKI (Thomas Kilmann Conflict Mode Indicator) and shows how it can be used to create positive outcomes from conflict.
