Is employee engagement improving or declining? Have the drivers of engagement changed over time? Who is responsible for engagement? Why aren't the least engaged employees actively looking for jobs elsewhere. These questions and more will be answered as Don MacPherson unveils Modern Surveys Fall 2013 Employee Engagement Study of the U.S. Workforce.
Twice annually, Modern Survey polls a panel sample of full-time employees to learn how they feel about their relationship with their organization, how effectively they are being led, whether or not they have the tools and training to do their job, and how well their organizational goals are communicated throughout the organization.
Lots of organizations do leadership development. Some do it well, some not-so-well. But even those who do it well often fall short of the full impact that the program could potentially have. Some organizations fall short by outsourcing leadership development to outside providers who impose their own narrow leadership template. Others fall short by delivering tired content and retread ideas. The key is to build a program that fits your organization’s culture and honors its history, while leveraging best leadership practices from inside and outside your organization.
This webinar will draw on the case study of a $4.5 billion dollar construction company that supercharged its leadership development efforts and, as a result, grew while nearly all of its competitors were shrinking during the Great Recession. Regardless of the content and features your program currently uses, during this webinar you’ll learn new ways to “supercharge” your program so that participants come away fully engaged and ready to lead.
The initial impression an organization makes is often the most critical. This holds true not only for potential customers and key stakeholders, but more importantly, for potential employees. For this reason, onboarding continues to gain steam as a key business initiative and accelerator to organizational success. The utilization of technology to harness the power of onboarding is a key driver behind obtaining those positive results.
Join SilkRoad and our friends from The Aberdeen Group, as we join forces to present the findings of Aberdeen’s 2013 Strategic Onboarding report. Attendees will gain a better understanding of how to transform basic new hire orientations into strategic initiatives and how leveraging the appropriate technology can drive productivity, engagement, and retention.
Did you know that within the first 48 hours of your employees attending a traditional training or learning event, their knowledge retention drops to 33 percent? Did you also know that research now shows that nearly 80 percent of learning in the workplace takes place informally? So why are training departments still spending the vast majority of their budgets on formal training efforts? Informal Learning has become all the rage over the past 5 years in the Learning and Development industry. As we’ve taken a closer look at this powerful discipline we’ve learned that Informal learning can actually be “formalized”, tracked, measured, and implemented through Performance Support. This session will address the methodologies behind designing, implementing, and maintaining effective Performance Support (learning while doing), and how it is now, more than ever, all around us!
“Awaken the Sleeping Giants” poignantly speaks to the pivotal role HR plays at this crucial time. Through a deeper understanding of the upcoming talent shortage and its future implications, HR will be compelled to claim their place at the boardroom table. It will mean partaking in company direction, strategy and equipping the corporate culture with the “Attraction Factor”. HR will have to “stand in the gap” to create a sea-change in thinking, new levels of conscious intention and developing company culture by design rather than by default.
This powerful talk is a must-attend for HR Professionals interested in their organization’s survival.
The emergence of the ‘global business’ model has brought a broader and ‘real time’ approach to leadership in the business climate. The influence of many complex factors has contributed to the increase in task variety and decrease in task accomplishment. Consequently, Human Resource professionals are left to address the question, ‘How do I assist the organization in accomplishing more without taking on more? While, seemingly, easier to move, undefined, tasks into the Human Resource function, the process negates the critical development of leadership roles across a spectrum of organizational disciplines
This presentation will focus on the ‘Strategic Consultation’ Leadership/Management model in which the focus is on leading by way of consultation. Research and practices gathered from consulting experiences will be presented.

As part of the rich history on the topic of identifying and developing ‘high potential’ employees, literally thousands of books, articles, and research papers have been written. Considering this weight of research, “pet theories” abound, with as many different ideas on how and what to do as there are HR leaders in different organizations. Join Dr. Henryk Krajewski, a recognized leader in BOTH the research and practice of talent assessment and development to share a unifying view of what matters most in selecting – and keeping – the best talent. Dr. Krajewski will distinguish what matters from what doesn’t, dispel popular myths about talent, and help you focus in on winning strategies that will help you attract and retain “differentiated” talent.
Specific learning objectives include:
• Learning to use compelling “business-language” conversations about the importance of top talent.
• Which assessment methods and tests are research supported, and an analysis of those that aren’t.
• What empirical research says about the factors proven to attract high potentials.
• Gaining knowledge and familiarity with the age-old psychological data that has simply been “recycled” time and time again in popular books re: engagement.
• How to use technology to make all of this easier!
