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.

The HR profession has evolved from an administrative and technical/functional focus to a strategic focus. For the last 20 years, strategy has been a mirror in which HR sees and aligns HR practices to help deliver business results. We believe that the next step in HR is to focus on “HR from the Outside In.” In this view, strategy is not a mirror, but a window through which HR professionals align their work to forces and stakeholders outside their organization.Read more >
