What is it about HCM that is driving the growing adoption trend?Read more >
What gets measured matters! Notoriously difficult to measure the human contribution has often been neglected in organizational decision making. The result is that important strategies are agreed with little or no knowledge of whether the capacity is there to deliver. For a number of years now the CIPD has been working in the area of human capital looking at how organisations generate and use meaningful data to inform stakeholders of the contribution of people to business. Different stakeholders need different information. Managers need to know how to manage people to ensure their efforts are directed on the right thinks and that they are encouraged to share and develop both their personal skills and organsiational knowledge, external stakeholders want to know how the organization is going to meet their needs whether it be for excellent service, return on investment or continuous innovation. This session will look at the issue of human capital and how we can gain greater understanding of the value and contribution of people to inform multiple stakeholders with a view to maximizing performance.Read more >

Identifying social compliance issues, particularly forced labor and human trafficking in supply chains, continues to be a significant problem for business, particularly when sourcing from opaque and non-transparent emerging markets. Civil society is playing a large part in increasing awareness and pressuring politicians to introduce and enforce legislation, and is gradually highlighting the issue as a problem which needs to be addressed both by governments and the business community.
Kroll has been researching and working on this issue for a number of years and believes that businesses should be taking the issue as seriously as other forms of compliance.

While some organizations remain unresponsive to the transitions in their employees’ lives, smart companies understand that proactively supporting employees through important life events is not just compassionate, it’s good business. More and more high-profile companies such as Google, Netflix, Adobe, and Microsoft are offering extended paid maternity and paternity leave as a talent attraction and retention tool. Having family-friendly benefits and policies is a start, but it is not enough. The most positive impact on organizational outcomes occurs when leaders foster a supportive work-life culture.
In this signature research conducted in partnership between Kindercare Education and HCI, we explore how organizations are supporting working parents before, during, and after their leave for a birth or an adoption. Based on a research study of almost 300 U.S. organizations, you will learn:
Benchmarks and future plans for family-friendly benefits and policies, including paid leave
How effective these work-life offerings are at attracting talent and preventing turnover
How HR functions can help working parents assimilate back into workforce regardless of the amount of leave taken
All registrants will receive a copy of the research report.
Review the study and findings from the "Randomized Trial of Human Milk Cream as a Supplement to Standard Fortification of an Exclusive Human Milk-Based Diet in Infants 750-1250 g Birth Weight."

Join Kroll experts for a webinar about Human Rights and Ethical Issues in Asia, the potential impact they have on your global supply chain, and how legislation, such as the California Transparency in Supply Chain Act, is affecting companies with vendors in Asia.
Recent US and international legislation has led to greater scrutiny of global supply chains, requiring companies to disclose their efforts in combating human rights risks within their direct supply chain. While the boundaries for accountability within supply chains remain unclear, consumer and stakeholder expectations are pushing companies to prioritize and address issues such as human trafficking, conflict materials, poor working conditions, and land rights issues. This webinar will discuss how legislation is affecting companies with vendors in Asia and cross-sector solutions to meet the challenges of supply chain, particularly in the ASEAN context.

For too long the human element has been wildly underutilized in protecting valuable assets and defending against prolific cyber-attacks. Security awareness initiatives are often sporadic, employing uninspired materials that yield little to no results – ultimately rendering security technologies useless due to easily avoidable human mistakes. A continued focus on security awareness alone is a plan doomed to fail. Instead, by shifting our focus to conditioning workforce behaviors through immersive experiences, security best practices become ingrained in daily workflow, helping to not only recognize and report on attack attempts, but weaponizing human intelligence to assist security operations, incident response and security event management in eliminating phishing threats.
Join guest speaker Nick Hayes, security analyst at Forrester Research, and Rohyt Belani, CEO and co-founder of PhishMe, as they demonstrate how building the right defense programs and teams can effectively change security culture, evolving from awareness to sophisticated strategies that achieve real results. In this webinar, you’ll learn:
•Why security awareness alone is failing the enterprise
•How to unlock the power of human driven intelligence
•Tips on speeding incident response

In 2015, phishing related breaches dominated security news headlines, and the trend continues into 2016 with a rise in ransomware incidents. Even with record spending on security technology solutions, phishing remains the greatest threat to organizations.
As phishing success depends on human error, organizations need to better leverage their most important resources in the battle – their employees. The phrase “All it takes is one” no longer has a negative meaning when all employees are empowered as the last line of security defense after the malicious email passed through porous security systems in place. And, not only can employees be fortified to resist phishing attempts, they also hold the key to providing IT and Security teams with timely company-specific attack intelligence.
In this webinar, PhishMe’s Aaron Higbee and Scott Greaux will discuss:
· The success and failure of technology systems
· How conditioning – not awareness – empowers employees to identify and report phishing attacks
· How critical attack intelligence generated from employees can be used to detect attacks – in progress
DevOps news is dominated by discussions about tools, and with good reason. It's not unusual for the amount of infrastructure-related code in a system to approach or even exceed the amount of code dedicated to the actual problem the system is solving, even in small systems. As our systems scale in size and complexity, we invest an ever increasing amount of resources into building solutions to help manage our our complex technical systems.
What's often overlooked is the human component of our systems. All too often our approaches to tools, processes, and systems management attempt to remove humans rather than empower them.
Humans are not a source of entropy to be safeguarded against in our systems, but rather a fundamental source of resilience and even efficiency. Learn ways that organizations can use this point of view to their advantage when constructing systems to move faster without sacrificing safety. Look into things like tools and interactions with them, team collaboration, and even organizational structure and policies.
Watch his session and spend some time learning about designing for human scale.
Forget about attacks through your firewall and perimeter defences. What about the guy who phones up the IT helpdesk, pretends to be a senior manager and gains access to your information that way; this is social engineering! Or send emails, using phishing techniques to employees, fooling them into giving away their credentials. Most security professionals agree that people are your weakest link - so why do we continue to ignore this area of security? Or at best give it lip service through half-hearted security awareness programmes? You can think about human security in the same way as you would secure a web server. Develop a thorough understanding of human vulnerabilities, with an appropriate balance between systemic improvements to shield human weaknesses, and effectively targeted training and awareness building.Read more >
