Organizations are faced with a key and critical challenge. Rising pressure to increase top line revenue growth while at the same time improving profitability leads to seeking productivity improvements for your talent. Sound easy? We all know that it isn’t, especially the employee viewpoint that they are already being stretched to the limit given recent workforce reductions. HR leadership has an opportunity to drive MISSION: TALENT-assuring the acquisition of talented new hires, and improving the performance of the current workforce. In this webinar, we will highlight recent findings from The Corporate Executive Board - how to achieve Breakthrough Performance as the starting point for what organizations need to do in top grading their talent to meet organizational objectives. We will highlight the role of assessments in identifying top new hires as well as measuring the competencies of those already in the workforce, how to leverage big data as a measuring stick for success, and the mistakes NOT to make for this mission.
This presentation is about how to use social media to build your profile and brand as an HR Professional in your organisation and industry. The key to this is to create a personal brand whereby your audience - ie your peers, employees, senior managers, external contacts - see you as a thought leader, a 'go to person' in your area of expertise. Once you have developed that 'status', you will be in a much better position to influence in your role both within your organisation and externally. Before the advent of social media it was much harder to do this and was a fairly lengthy process affected by many variables. In this social world, with the level playing field it creates, we have a massive opportunity to expedite this mission using the social tools that we now have at our disposal.
How often have you hired someone with a great track record who turned out to be a bad hire? By discovering what a candidate’s previous managers and colleagues candidly say about their work style, skills and behaviors, you can objectively assess the candidate’s ability to be a top performer. Through this session, you will learn how technology has introduced a way for talent acquisition professionals to capture behavioral feedback from five references in just two days for each job candidate, and how to avoid candidates who score low with references. Also, see an overview of how this technology infuses compliance, consistency, reliability and validity into each reference-check and obtains feedback that identifies developmental needs of candidates.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released a New two page Form I-9 on March 8, 2013. This Form can be used immediately, but will be mandatory as of May 7, 2013. DHS gave employers very little time to make this administrative change, which can be especially challenging for employers that have several people responsible for this function through many different field offices.
This session will review the new Form in detail, and will also review the most common errors based on the new form, including how to correct errors made on the Form.. The initiation of a new form is also an excellent time to review all I-9 policies, including whether to make copies of supporting documents, how to process remote hires and rehires, when to reverify in Section 3, and how long to retain I-9 Forms. The speaker will provide practical solutions, especially for those employers that continue to rely on paper I-9s.
No one individual controls workplace culture, yet many HR professionals are expected to take ownership of it. When culture is good, there isn’t much of a concern, but when culture turns toxic—that’s where things can get ugly.
Toxic cultures cost employers money and create difficult working conditions for all employees. From absenteeism, to employee turnover, low morale, decreased productivity, and inferior work, we all suffer the consequences of weak organizational cultures.
Join Jostle CEO Brad Palmer and Leadership Expert and co-author of Humanize, Jamie Notter for a 60 minute webinar and learn: How to identify the symptoms of a toxic workplace; how to strengthen culture by connecting to human values; how technology can play a role; and how to change culture step-by-step.
