  • 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.

  • Humanising the Workplace for Cultural Transformation Success Recorded: Aug 6 2020 44 mins
    Tony Holmwood, Cultural change strategist, executive and team coach, Outperf4m Consulting
    Effective leadership and evolving cultures are widely recognised as imperative to creating healthy, thriving organisations. Companies who score highest on creating an equitable, consistently high-trust culture for all employees achieve 3X higher market returns than those on the bottom. Yet these patterns of behaviour remain very much a Holy Grail for many organisations and HR leaders.

    As organisations focus more clearly on a compelling, authentic, and altruistic purpose and enable people to be the best they can be, sustainable financial results become far more likely. Recent research also suggests that both leaders and cultures need to continually evolve and develop, to create greater agility and adaptability in the face of a constantly changing world. At the core of this approach is intentionally developing and coaching the capacity of people.

    In this presentation Tony Holmwood will present his behavioural development framework from his internationally accredited and awarded book “Best Behaviour”. Tony will introduce his cultural change workshops designed to prepare HR and business leaders to successfully deliver a cost effective inhouse cultural transformation program. The workshops cover the following topics:

    - Creating a purposeful, high performance cultural strategy
    - Preparing leaders to be culturally transformative
    - Coaching for team literacy and agility so employees can flourish
    - Establishing a workplace environment for culture change success

    (At the conclusion of the workshops HR and business leaders are presented with a co-designed culture change implementation strategy benchmarked to world’s best practise).

  • Five Things You Didn’t Know About Employee Engagement Recorded: Aug 5 2020 43 mins
    Daniel J. Cahill, Managing Principal, HSD Metrics
    In business, we tend to study a concept to death and then discard it when a new buzzword comes along. The truth is that we have been studying employee engagement for a long time because it is difficult and complex. A tight labor market and enlightened leaders have taught us that workers who care about a company can be a competitive differentiator. Given the same available resources, markets, suppliers, etc., a company with engaged employees will win. The problem is that employee engagement is not simple because human behavior is complex. Directing resources to employee engagement without a proper respect for its complexity is like hopping on a horse before you know if it has been broken to ride.

    In this webinar you will discover what you need to know about employee engagement before “hopping on the horse”.

    We will explore how employee engagement has become a popular but little understood concept. Human Resource teams are already strategic partners in the effort to engage employees and this webinar will address how we need to arm HR teams with the same data and analytics that the business leaders use to make decisions because employee engagement is as complex as all other parts of the business.
