    The Freelance Trustfall:Guidelines for Effectively Working w/Finance Freelancers
    Meghan Zasada, Account Manager at Paro Recorded: Dec 18 2019 23 mins
    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.

  • Series Six, Episode Seven: Tales from a female AI entrepreneur...
    Series Six, Episode Seven: Tales from a female AI entrepreneur...
    Julia Streets Recorded: Dec 18 2019 36 mins
    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.

    HR teams mean well with engagement programs — after all, engagement is essential for strengthening company culture, reducing turnover, and benefitting the bottom line.

    When was the last time you were shown appreciation, recognition or gratitude in your place of work? How does it make you feel, when you’re acknowledged in this way? When did you last do the same, show appreciation, recognition or gratitude in your workplace?

    Gratitude is one of the most important ingredients that makes teamwork and camaraderie possible.

    - Why should we be appreciative?
    - Recognition and reward, it’s not all about the money

    James Marsh, HRreview; Suzanne Allen, People Project Manager, Lakeland; Sam Lawton, Customer Success Manager, Fuse Universal Jan 30 2020 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    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.

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.

    Increasingly employers want a joined-up global approach to supporting employees in combining work and family.

  • Childcare & the Gender Pay Gap – Baby Steps or a Giant Leap?
    Childcare & the Gender Pay Gap – Baby Steps or a Giant Leap?
    James Marsh, HRreview; Denise Priest, Director of Employer and Strategic Partnerships at Bright Horizons Apr 30 2020 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    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.’

    What You Can Do to Improve the Employee Experience in Your Workplace
    Deb Calvert Oct 6 2020 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    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.
  • Succession Management: Don't Put So Much Stock in the 9-Box Model
    Succession Management: Don't Put So Much Stock in the 9-Box Model
    Deb Calvert Nov 3 2020 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    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.
