Workers Comp from the Injured Worker's Prospective

When employees have injuries or disabilities why do we assume they don't want to come back to work? How do injured employees view the workers compensation system and why? Quite often we never consider the injured worker in the process - this webcast will take an honest look at the workers compensation system.

    Jill Christensen, Best Selling Author & Employee Engagement Expert, Jill Christensen International
    We are living in unprecedented times - ‘work’ as we know it has changed. In order to thrive, organizations must re-invent themselves and embrace the new normal. As a Top 101 Global Employee Engagement Influencer, Jill understands how organizations operate, and what they need to do to attract, retain, and engage employees - whether they sit under your nose or work remotely.

    o The one thing you must know to keep remote employees engaged, enthused, and effective.

  • Transform Talents to Strengths Nov 5 2020 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Jenpakorn Veerachayapornpong, Vice President People & Culture, Pacific Healthcare Group of Companies
    Based on Gallup research, people who focus on using their strengths are likely to engage in the job 6 times more and happy in their life 3 times more. Each talent is unique by characteristics, competencies, and interest.

    Leaders are accountable to facilitate and manage talent by creating a memorable experience that supports career growth mentally and physically.

    Optimizing talent to drive results has become a higher priority than team relationship building. Unfortunately, top performers and untapped talent leave the organization. By focusing on individual talent and skills, you can deliver better results because not only are you helping employees turn natural talent into strengths, you build a healthy relationship and maintain overall job rewards and satisfaction.

    Jenpakorn Veerachayapornpong is on a mission to lead the organization in building the culture and developing people capability. He is a unique 16 years background in people management, development, business and culture leader working extensively across Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, and Myanmar with a variety of businesses including a leading world luxury hotel; Mandarin Oriental Hotel Bangkok, premium commercial laundry service provider; i-Klean, a largest casual-dining and quick-service restaurant; Minor Food, and currently at Pacific Healthcare, a leading healthcare distributor. He specializes in developing and coaching people through their individual strengths. He has been successfully creating employee experience and significantly increasing the employee engagement.

  • How to Attract and Manage Employees Effectively in Today’s Topsy-Turvey World Nov 4 2020 10:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Melanie Turek, VP of Research and Fellow, Connected Work, Frost & Sullivan | panelists to be announced!
    Even before the pandemic sent all but the most essential workers home, more than 50% of all knowledge workers were routinely working from somewhere other than a traditional corporate office. Add to that the trend toward flexible work hours, the gig economy and an increasingly tech-savvy employee base, and you can understand why we are in a true revolution when it comes to the employee experience. As companies continue to allow employees the flexibility to work from anywhere, new challenges arise: All these disparate, mobile and even disruptive people and technologies must continue to work as one team in order to drive innovation and deliver measurable results. Chances are, the methods and tools you’ve used for years will not cut it in an increasingly diverse and dispersed workplace.

    Join us for this in-depth discussion to learn:

    - What are the most important changes taking place in the workplace right now?
    - What’s driving these changes, and are they inevitable?
    - How can you ensure your business is on the front lines of management best practices?
    - What are some old management styles that simply won’t cut it in 2020 and beyond?
    - How can companies recruit talent in an uncertain world?
    - How should companies keep their remote workers connected—whenever they need to be, on any device or network?
    - How do I get buy in from my own managers and colleagues?
    - How should I rethink compensation, benefits and the like?
  • How to Show Up Mindfully in the Face of Stress + Burnout Nov 4 2020 8:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Katherine Merrill, Head of People @ Buffy || Managing Partner, Merrill HR LLC
    We're in a year where just about everything that could trigger anxiety, stress, and burnout has happened; and let's be real: as a leader, AND as an HR Partner, it's the recipe for poor communication and strained professional relationships; all of which increase the likelihood of employees wanting to depart their work environment.

    Something I think that goes unspoken is the importance of our own stress, burnout, and even shame awareness as HR partners, and how to honor acknowledging those parts of ourselves to not only live wholeheartedly...but to be most effective to coach and help our company's leaders do the same.
    Leaders and employees need us to role model how to show in 2020 - it's the micro behaviors every day of: being late, not following up, reacting emotionally, and not showing up for your team that I believe truly threatens top talent turnover
    It starts with us

    During this time, I'm going to:

    - Take you through the most common behaviors I've seen leaders exhibit in daily work days that lead to turnover, and how you as an HR leader can coach and influence in those moments to minimize those likelihoods at your own company

    - Give you techniques to assess your own stress, burnout, and shame tendencies, and how they may show you in your work interactions

    - Share tools techniques that can be incorporated into your daily/weekly routine (including: meditation + breathing techniques and authors) that you can immediately takeaway

    - Developing awareness of stress, burnout, and shame... isn't a one time check off the box; it is something that needs to be committed to and built every day; and I'll be transparent with you during this talk about my own journey when I didn't do this well, and how I challenged my own way of living and thinking to turn it around

  • Is Your Talent Acquisition Accidental or Intentional? Nov 4 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Tom Mason and Wendy Wick, Talent & Transformation, IBM Global Business Services
    It's time to rethink the operating model for Talent Acquisition.

    Traditional talent acquisition assumes part or all of the recruiting process for an organization, from creating a requisition to onboarding. But it operates as a task-oriented model with technology positioned in the background for data collection. The result is an experience for candidates and hiring managers focused on checking boxes, not nurturing relationships and delivering higher-value outcomes.

    As organizations make their journey to the cloud, now is the time to transform your talent acquisition to focus on moments of impact enabled by technology. With data readily available and used intentionally, your talent acquisition team can build your workforce efficiently and reduce the administrative burden.

    Join Tom Mason and Wendy Wick to learn how IBM is using design thinking, cognitive technology and intelligent workflows to orchestrate the balance in talent acquisition between people, skills and technology, putting people back in control of the process and using data to predict outcomes​. This approach enables talent acquisition teams to tap into the many benefits that accelerated AI services offer.

    Tom and Wendy will discuss the tremendous business impact one Fortune 5 company had around its experience using the Precision Talent Model (PTM), powered by IBM Services Essential. On the verge of rapid, exponential growth, this organization was looking for more efficiency and speed in the process while delivering better experiences for candidates and hiring managers.

  • How to keep your employees engaged, even in the toughest times? Recorded: Sep 3 2020 54 mins
    Evert-Jan De Kort, Head of Brand Strategy & Founding Partner | mad about you
    Thriving companies have strong cultures. A strong culture keeps employees engaged, motivated and inspired by offering clear guiding principles of how people work together and contribute to the overall company’s ambitions. Strong cultures also appeal to new candidates and are a strong motivator to consider working for a company, or not.

    In these times, company culture plays an important role to keep your company on solid ground. With a ‘new normal’ in working together laying ahead, the way you deal with your company culture will determine at large how your company will perform at all levels.

    Solid company cultures are driven by strong values that give identity. They not only make clear to all employees how they can contribute to their company, they also shape the spirit of how people work together across teams and find meaningful belonging.

    This talk will inspire you with real life cases and give you hooks to start refreshing your company culture with strong values, that give heart to your identity as a company.

    In this webinar you will learn about:
    - The importance of culture for your company’s performance
    - The four different types of values of a company culture
    - How to approach the definition of your values
    - How to reinforce your values and your people

  • Building an Inclusive Organization: Leveraging the Power of a Diverse Workforce Recorded: Aug 13 2020 58 mins
    Raafi-Karim Alidina and Stephen Frost, authors of 'Building an Inclusive Organization', and Harriet Jamieson, BrightTALK
    A diverse workforce is a business imperative. Without it, companies are made up of employees who come from the same background and have the same skills and, therefore, the same blind spots. A diverse workforce brings together different strengths, a variety of experiences, a huge breadth of knowledge and a wealth of creative problem-solving techniques. However, in order to leverage the benefits of this diverse workforce, businesses must be inclusive. Inclusion ensures that employees feel supported, are treated fairly and are therefore happier, more engaged and more productive.

    'Building an Inclusive Organization' by Raafi-Karim Alidina and Stephen Frost, is a practical guide to creating an environment of real inclusion. Today, we chat with Raafi and Stephen about their groundbreaking book. Points of discussion will include:

    - How to remove unconscious bias from company processes including recruitment and selection
    - How to make the case for diversity and inclusion to all stakeholders
    - How to embed inclusion into an organization's culture and overall business strategy

    'Building an Inclusive Organization' is packed with case studies from organizations including KPMG, Uber, Salesforce, Harvard University and the UK National Health Service (NHS), and shows how to implement robust processes and policies to foster diversity and inclusion in organizations of any size, and in all sectors, including the creative industry, finance, tech, and academia and foundations.

    Guidance and advice is also provided on how to use 'nudges' to change behaviours and overcome bias, how to achieve transparency and accountability, and how to measure, review and evaluate inclusion.
