  • 6 new approaches to foster an agile workforce in 2021 Recorded: Feb 11 2021 57 mins
    Jeanne Schad, Talent Solutions & Strategy Practice Leader, Randstad RiseSmart
    After a year of disruption, what are the old ways of working that will no longer suit us in 2021? Now is the time to adopt new approaches that will yield far better outcomes for employees and organizations alike.

    Prospering in the new world of work requires continuous internal talent mobility. This means rethinking everything – from career development, learning and skill-building to the very concept of job descriptions and why sharing talent freely is in everyone’s interest – as well as taking a new view of the employee journey.

    Join Randstad RiseSmart’s Jeanne Schad as she explores six ways of working that are better left behind and their replacements that you can put into play in 2021:

    - Pursuing creative alternatives to layoffs to retain employees
    - Helping managers freely share their talented direct reports and why it can help your organization flourish
    - Tossing out rigid job descriptions to help you uncover workforce capabilities you didn’t know you had
    - Taking a flexible approach to how, when and where learning occurs to untether career development and internal mobility
    - Trading tech-only skilling solutions with a guided approach to close the skills gap
    - Simplifying your life by replacing multiple tech platforms with integrated technology

  • Avoiding layoffs and cutting expenses with rapid redeployment Recorded: Nov 5 2020 39 mins
    Jeanne Schad, talent solutions & strategy practice leader, Randstad RiseSmart
    Many organizations know that letting go of people has downstream consequences to employer brand, employee morale and productivity, innovation and the ability to be agile and competitive once the economy recovers. Yet, with the magnitude and length of the current pandemic-induced recession unknown, many organizations may feel they have no choice but to lay off a percentage of their workforce. Rapid redeployment is a tool that employers can add to their repertoire – one that can actually be less expensive than outplacement, allow companies to retain tribal knowledge, and enhance agility and competitiveness, especially once the economy rebounds.

    Join Randstad RiseSmart’s Jeanne Schad, talent solutions & strategy practice leader, as she explores the value of rapid redeployment as an important option for employers to consider as part of their workforce toolkit.

    You’ll learn:
    - how companies are changing their approach to layoffs
    - how rapid redeployment can reduce company costs
    - why current internal redeployment initiatives may fall short for today’s needs
    - the tools and resources needed to successfully redeploy employees
    - why now is the right time to promote a culture of ‘stretching’ and continuous learning

    Kevin Martin, CRO, Institute for Corporate Productivity, Mark Goodman, Partner, Robin Samuel, Partner, Baker McKenzie
    Consider these statistics from the Institute for Corporate Productivity, a human capital research firm:

    -60% of companies have a coronavirus task force dedicated to developing a ‘return to workplace’ strategy
    -68% of companies with a coronavirus task force have CHROs on that team

    As regulations and best practices continue to evolve, there are fresh insights that you as an HR leader can gain from on-the-ground experiences of your peers, as well as guidelines and strategies that you can follow as you manage the return to the workplace and think about what the future may look like.

    This webinar will provide you with quantitative data and qualitative insights into how peers are conducting return-to-workplace planning, gauging workforce sentiment and considering how to manage talent in innovative ways. You will also learn what topics to address as workplaces reopen.

    Topics covered:

    -benchmarking data from Fortune 1000 companies
    -what’s top of mind for HR leaders and ‘next practices’ being deployed
    -permanent changes anticipated in the workplace and the workforce
    -factors to consider when creating a reopening timeline
    -strategies for workplace safety and prevention
    -questions to consider around testing and health screening
    -what to build into workforce communications

  • Your Top Talent and You: The Value of a Career Mobility Strategy Recorded: Sep 10 2019 50 mins
    Lindsay Witcher VP, Practice Strategy, RiseSmart, Zachary Chertok Research Analyst, Human Capital Management, Aberdeen
    HR departments are facing the perfect storm: Attracting top talent has not only become a battle; it’s become costly, too, as companies hire externally to find the right people at the right time. Employee turnover is also rising just as baby boomers are retiring, leading to skills gaps that can damage market competitiveness. Meanwhile, three-quarters of HR departments face calls to reduce labor costs. Today’s reality: Shrinking tenure, increasing front-end talent acquisition spend, and comparatively long initial training periods compared to average employee tenure leave organizations at increasing risk of not breaking even on their employee onboarding investment. The average company’s talent acquisition spend outpaces its internal performance management by a factor of up to 2 to 1.

    There is a way to navigate out of the storm: Redeployment. To do this correctly, HR needs the right tools to reconcile cost management, employee tenure, and organizational skills development. In this webinar, find out how you can shift to a long-term talent employability through career mobility strategies that incorporate the overall value that existing employees bring.

    Key takeaways:
    - How Best-in-Class HR and talent acquisition teams are embracing redeployment strategies
    - How these strategies are improving key metrics, such as employee tenure, the likelihood of sourcing and hiring top talent, labor productivity, and new revenue generation
    - Strategies and tactics to institute a redeployment program in your organization

    Most HR organizations know what they need to do in order to succeed—but they don’t do it. Why is that? After all, companies spend big bucks to send HR teams to conferences, buy the latest technology, and teach best practices.

Dee II Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Graduate School of Business, Stanford University, you’ll discover how to close that gap between knowing and doing—once and for all.

  • How to improve Employee Engagement and Performance Recorded: Aug 17 2015 57 mins
    Aaron Hurst
    Over the past several years, we’ve seen a great shift in what it takes to engage employees: workers are no longer satisfied with sitting behind a desk, trading in information, and waiting for their 20 year service award. Instead, we see massive turnover as employees seek work that provides them not only with a paycheck, but with passion and purpose.
  • HR Transformation: Building Human Resources Strategies Recorded: Aug 17 2015 59 mins
    Dave Ulrich
    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.
