  • Diversity and Inclusion: Rethinking workplace diversity Dec 3 2020 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Organisational Psychologists Mollie Tatlow and Arianna McMechan from Thomas International
    Top quartile companies for diversity were found to be more likely to financially outperform industry medians than bottom quartile companies for gender diversity (by 16%) and ethnic diversity (by 35%) (McKinsey & Company, 2017).

    Workplace diversity is far more than just a moral issue. Organisations can harness the difference in people to help them become more successful, more innovative, more skilled and better able to cater to their diverse clients’ needs. However, putting steps in place to build a diverse workforce is not enough. So what can you do?

    Join Mollie and Arianna as they discuss the importance of having a D&I strategy in your recruitment and people processes, how to cultivate an inclusive workforce and the challenges you may come across.

    Key takeaways:
    - Why is diversity important in the workplace?
    - Interesting statistics on bias, diversity and inclusion
    - How you can cultivate diversity in the workplace

    This webinar is for HR professionals, leaders and managers looking to improve their diversity and inclusion strategy by addressing unconscious bias in the workplace. 

    Mollie has an Occupational Psychology MSc with University of Leicester and is a Research Assistant within the Global Science Team. She is mainly responsible for carrying out academic research in relation to psychometric assessments and validating concepts to help inform new product ideas. Her dissertation focused on the impact of trait emotional intelligence on workplace outcomes.

    Arianna has a Masters in Organisational & Business Psychology from UCL and is a Research Assistant within the Science Team at Thomas International. Her dissertation focused on the relationship between personality traits and organisational outcomes and the moderating impact of self-awareness. Arianna is involved in running validation and reliability studies for psychometric tools, conducting academic and client research for product innovation and analysing data through statistical analysis.

  • Hoe help jij jouw medewerkers door de crisis heen? Recorded: Nov 16 2020 46 mins
    Carmen Amador Barreiro, Organisational and business psychologist & Annemarie van der Heijden, Trainer at Thomas Nederland
    Ga er lekker voor zitten en log in voor ons webinar uit de ‘Thomas Talks’ reeks: Emotionele Veerkracht. Dit webinar is reeds eerder gepresenteerd in het Engels maar nu dus ook de mogelijkheid om het Nederlandstalige webinar bij te wonen!

    Tijdens het webinar bespreken Carmen en Annemarie hoe managers hun teams het beste kunnen ondersteunen in een tijd van (gedeeltelijke) lockdown, uitdagende thuissituaties en in veel gevallen een economische terugslag.

    Emotionele veerkracht is de sleutel in deze tijd. Mensen met een aangeboren hogere emotionele intelligentie zullen meer een psychologische buffer van 'middelen' hebben om hen te helpen het hoofd te bieden, dan degenen zonder dit voordeel. Zij zullen het meest profiteren van gerichte steun van hun managers en werkgevers. Het rapport van de Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (TEIQue) geeft een duidelijk overzicht van de ontwikkelingsgebieden per eigenschap. Dit kan zeer waardevol zijn in deze tijden van onzekerheid evenals het onderzoeken van het gedrag onder druk met behulp van de Persoonlijke Profiel Analyse.

    Belangrijkste lessen die je uit dit webinar zult leren:

    - Hoe kun je het TEIQue rapport gebruiken om de meest effectieve - ondersteuningsstrategie per persoon te identificeren.

    - Welke eigenschappen zijn het meest waarschijnlijk geassocieerd met veerkracht - bijvoorbeeld optimisme, relaties, stressmanagement en aanpassingsvermogen.

    - Emotionele intelligentie en gedrag als indicatoren van veerkracht. Ontdek hoe je zowel TEIQue als PPA kunt gebruiken om aangepaste ondersteuningsplannen voor je medewerkers te maken.

    Dit webinar is interessant voor leidinggevenden, managers, HR-professionals, coaches en trainers.

    Graag stellen we Carmen aan je voor, een van onze jongste talenten van het Global Psychology Team.

    Annemarie van der Heijden is sinds juni 2017 Trainer Consultant bij Thomas Nederland.
  • Tackling unconscious bias: Developing the right people Recorded: Nov 12 2020 35 mins
    Marcelo Souza, Country Manager at Thomas International Brazil and Emilia Bradea, Client Development and Senior Trainer
    “Women are often socially and culturally expected to be nurturing and likeable, which in turn restricts their consideration for a leadership position, while, on the other hand, if they are assertive and forthright, they are deemed to be unlikable, and too bossy to be good leaders.” – Dr Pragya Agarwal

    Making a decision based on conscious or unconscious bias can cause leaders to make the wrong decisions about individuals. To avoid doing this, leaders need to become more aware of the biases impacting their decisions and thinking.

    Join host Marcelo and guest speaker Emilia Bradea in the third of our unconscious bias series as they discuss unconscious bias in development, especially when it comes to making decisions on leadership and succession planning.

    Key takeaways:

    - How to select high potential individuals for development based on data rather than gut
    - Ways to steer away from stereotyping when making leadership development decisions
    - What traits to factor in when making succession plans

  • An introduction to unconscious bias – from industry experts Recorded: Sep 17 2020 32 mins
    Marcelo Souza, Country Manager at Thomas Brazil and Graeme Doyle, Managing Director of The Logistics Partnership LLP
    79% of HR professionals believe that unconscious bias exists in recruitment and succession planning decisions.

    But what is unconscious bias?

    Unconscious biases are social stereotypes about certain groups of people that individuals form outside of their own conscious awareness. Types of unconscious bias include gender bias, confirmation bias and affinity bias. Unconscious bias has a role in almost every aspect of the modern workplace and if left unchecked, unconscious biases can lead to a loss of talent and innovation and it can breed a culture of discrimination in your workplace.

    Join Marcelo Souza and Graeme Doyle in the first of our series of short, 30-min webinars, where they will discuss the definition and types of unconscious bias, as well as providing the latest industry insights into the implications of leaving this unchecked. Graeme will provide expert insights into confirmation bias within recruitment and leadership.

    This webinar is for HR professionals, leaders and managers looking to improve their diversity and inclusion strategy by addressing unconscious bias in the workplace.

    So how do you support your employees during this period of change? Join Elne as she delivers this interactive webinar, highlighting how to manage your own and your employees’ frustrations to maintain their performance during times of change.

  • Emotional Resilience: How to manage your teams through a crisis Recorded: May 12 2020 58 mins
    Carmen Amador Barreiro, Organisational and business psychologist and Alex Vincent, Learning & Development Specialist
    Grab a coffee and join our latest webinar series, Thomas Talks, as Carmen and Alex discuss how managers can best support their teams through the confluence of challenges presented by lockdown, an economic downturn and uniquely challenging home situations.

    Emotional Resilience is key during this time. Those with innately high levels will have a psychological buffer of ‘resources’ to help them cope, those without this advantage will benefit most from targeted support from their managers and employers. The developmental report from TEIQue gives a clear summary of development areas per trait and can be highly valuable during these times of uncertainty as well as exploring their behaviour under pressure from the PPA.

    Key lessons:
    - How to use TEIQue Development Report to identify the most affective support strategy required per person

    - Which traits are most likely to be associated with resilience – for example optimism, relationships, stress management and adaptability

    - Emotional Intelligence and behaviour as indicators of resilience and how you can use both TEIQue and PPA to create custom support plans for your employees.

    Carmen Amador Barreiro is a Business Psychologist in the Global Science Team at Thomas International.
