  • Understanding Company Culture & How to Bring it Alive! May 25 2021 8:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Sophie Bryan, Chief Workplace Culture Specialist at Ordinarily Different Ltd.
    Company culture is often a misunderstood element of working life. It’s not really a physical thing - although it does manifest itself in physical things. It’s more a feeling - how you make people feel, which makes it less tangible and harder to measure than other corporate metrics. So in this webinar we will cover what "company culture” actually means and how you can bring it alive in your organisation, so that your employees feel motivated and engaged because of it, not despite it!

    We’ll explore:
    Exactly what company culture is (and what it isn’t!)
    How and why company culture needs to evolve
    Ways in which company culture influences engagement
    Some key take aways that you can use in your organisation to build on your culture and enhance people engagement

  • Reengineering Workflows with AI to Optimize Human Impact and Talent Recorded: Feb 24 2021 32 mins
    Gary Parilis, Associate Partner, Advanced Analytics & AI & Eric Bokelberg, HR Innovation Leader, Talent & Transformation, IBM
    The talent environment is undergoing a revolution, with employee-centricity along with data analytics and AI driving the transformation. Companies have long known that getting the greatest value out of their workforce requires an investment in technology, but technology alone is not enough. While software and automation can reduce human effort, they tend to serve single functions. Technology needs to be part of holistic workflows, re-engineered to optimize human impact and enhance employee experience. Such intelligent workflows:

    Apply AI, analytics, and automation to augment human actors, not to replace them
    Make human touchpoints more impactful and efficient
    Perform end-to-end processes across business functions
    Are architected to support measurable, planned, value-based outcomes

    Analytics and AI benefit the talent landscape across the employee lifecycle, and many applications can be integrated into intelligent workflows, such as:
    Improving hiring & onboarding processes
    Maximizing employee engagement
    Predicting, understanding, and reducing turnover
    Inferring proficiency in skills needed in each role
    AI-driven compensation recommendations for managers
    Identifying future leadership potential

  • We only hire the best and brightest here: Tools for True Diverse Hiring Recorded: Feb 23 2021 55 mins
    Jodi Detjen, Managing Partner, Orange Grove Consulting
    Even with the best intentions, systemic practices can thwart inclusive hiring. Unfortunately, this is particularly the case for organizations that incorporate AI and other software into their hiring process. Research shows that organizations who believe most fervently they are a meritocracy are actually the most biased. But how can you ferret out bias from your hiring processes? First, by becoming aware of the unconscious bias that may influence your hiring process: from how your job descriptions are written, to where you’re looking for talent, and finally, to how you interview candidates.

    Whether intentional or not, you likely have some unconscious bias permeating throughout your hiring process. From the word choices you use on the descriptions, the ways you market the job, or your recruiting networks. There’s so much you can learn about how your process functions, especially when it comes to analyzing the “no” pile.

    This presentation will dive into individual aspects of the hiring process, as well as the hiring journey more holistically, in order to show where you may be undercutting your diverse hiring efforts. Participants will develop a methodology and new tool kit to create a more inclusive hiring process, and ultimately more diverse — and productive — teams.

    Participants will learn to:

    - Justify the need for a cognitively diverse team
    - Analyze and optimize job descriptions for a diverse candidate pool
    - Inclusive recruiting methods through “how” and “where”
    - Understand how unconscious bias impacts the interview process

    Spotting and attracting early-stage talent have become a critical challenge for corporations to ensure a strong and sustainable talent pipeline.

    - spotting university talent beyond academical results
    - accelerating the development of critical work skills for students
    - equipping students with the psychological resources to manage stress, build resilience and develop
    - a growth mindset necessary to thrive in an ever-demanding work-place

  • Where Do You Bury Your Dead: The Importance of Off Boarding Recorded: Nov 5 2020 60 mins
    Brandi E Hudson, HR Consultant & Director, BEH HR
    So much time is spent on culture and the front end of the employee life cycle. We focus on Onboarding, Learning and Development, Diversity and Inclusion, etc. but how does your organization handle the end of the employee life cycle? When you have bad off boarding and don't communicate with your team it leaves room for stories and rumors. Not only does it create fear but it also makes your team wonder if they're safe. Coming up with an off boarding plan that suits your organization is just as important as the onboarding process.

    Remember people matter just as much at the end of their tenure as the beginning no matter the reason for their departure. So I'll ask - How do you bury your dead?

    Three specific Learning Objectives achieved by attending the session:
    - How to build a memorable off boarding process
    - Ways to communicate with your team in case of a bad off boarding process
    - Learn how to get the most out of your exit interviews
