  • Mastermind: Groups for Success
    Mastermind: Groups for Success
    Lori Kleiman, SPHR SHRM-SCP Recorded: Apr 9 2019 27 mins
    Mastermind, or peer-to-peer advisory, groups are found in all aspects of development today. Some team members participate outside our organizations but bringing them into the organization helps maintain control and achieve the development, engagement and succession planning goals for your team. Internal talent development professionals are utilizing this format in house as an effective new avenue for learning and development activities. Well formatted and facilitated mastermind groups can build skills and camaraderie within teams, increasing employee engagement. At the same time, they will provide access to resources that might otherwise be unavailable to employees not in current leadership positions. But how do you get started?
    Using proven techniques, participants will learn about the basics of the groups, how to get started, facilitation techniques and other process that help you get started. We will look at technology as a way to deploy the programs throughout the organization that makes facilitation easy.
    Learning Objectives
    ·Understand the concept and benefits of mastermind groups
    ·Determination for membership
    ·Process and procedures for running groups
    ·Options for meetings including technology available

    Panel Discussion: 3 Game-Changing Innovation Models in Financial Services Today
    Pat Patel, Money20/20 | Dr Leda Glyptis, 11:FS | Drew Graham, Fintech Strategy | Megan Caywood, Barclays Recorded: Apr 4 2019 61 mins
    Innovation has quickly become an overused and distorted word. At Money20/20 Europe expect to cut through the hype, explore what measurements we can use to benchmark innovation and get to the heart of sustainable and commercial step change. A key question which has moved back up the C-Level agenda of established; banks, tech companies and payments companies is:

    "How can incumbents deliver meaningful game-changing innovation?"

    There are three options available for incumbents, and at Money20/20 Europe we’ll be developing deeper into each one:

    1. Can organisations transform their cultures to execute true innovation internally within their organisations? (cultural transformation)

    2. Perhaps tech transformation is the way forward, partnering or acquisitions to do so?

    3. Or do they need to achieve business model transformation by building something entirely new outside of the organisation?

    These options are being heavily debated in boardrooms throughout Europe, with a number of high profile banks recently announcing plans to build brand new subsidiaries. Some of the traditional banks, payments and tech companies are pursuing a few or all of the options while others are sitting on the fence. Which is most effective and why? What are the dynamics at play that determine success for different types of companies? Hear from the leading companies in our industry as they share their incisive insight on the successes but also the failures and the lessons learned.

  • Connection: The Key to Employee Engagement
    Connection: The Key to Employee Engagement
    Mindi Cox Recorded: Mar 20 2019 54 mins
    We hear over and over again that employee engagement is low. A 2017 Gallup report shows 51% of the workforce is not engaged, and 16% are actively disengaged. What’s missing in our workplace cultures that has led to such low engagement?

    Connection. Connection between people - between employees and their leaders. Between teams. Between people and their companies. We have so much technology at hand to bring us together, but it may actually cause us to drift apart. Think of the email or text you send to a coworker sitting right across from you. The instant message you send instead of picking up the phone.

    This lack of connection leads to less collaboration, innovation, trust, and engagement. But companies can take active steps to build more interaction and relationships between their people, and use practices, like appreciation, to create a more integrated culture.

    Join Mindi Cox, Senior Vice President of People and Great Work at O.C. Tanner, as she shares insights and best practices on how to create a more connected workforce in today’s increasingly disconnected environment.

    During the webinar you’ll learn:

    • The importance of human connection in the workplace today
    • How to foster high-quality interactions among employees and teams
    • The impact of having a connected workforce on company culture and employee performance

    The UK has one of the biggest gender pay gaps in Europe as well as a growing skills shortage. Research shows 92% of people would use gender pay gap information when looking for a job and half of female employees would favour an organisation with a smaller gap (Business in the Community, 2015).

    We now have data from two rounds of Gender Pay Gap reporting and we’ve seen many narratives and action plans exploring the drivers, and solutions.

    In this webinar we’ll be sharing analysis of the latest round of reporting and examining what it tells us about any progress in closing the gap. But it’s not just about the numbers, we’ll also be considering challenges and opportunities of the mandatory narrative and asking what ‘good’ looks like.

    We’ll be discussing what employers are actually doing to close the gap with a focus on addressing the key ‘motherhood’ and ‘good daughter’ penalties.

    Join James Marsh and our panel of employers, thought leaders and gender pay experts for an insightful and lively discussion.

    Jennifer Liston-Smith, Director, Head of Coaching, Consultancy and Thought Leadership at My Family Care and Ruth Thomas, co-founder and Senior Consultant at Curo Compensation will be providing expert insight and a broad perspective on the topic.
