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.
Organizational Strategic Plans are calling for talent to deliver on aggressive agendas with limited resources in a whole new set of work realities. It is vital that HR professionals adopt a whole new approach in regards to ensuring that human resources are able to deliver on the strategic goals of the organization.
Join Cy Wakeman, New York Times bestselling author and blogger, in this session where she’ll introduce a revolutionary new performance metric for quantifying employee value to the organization. Cy will reveal five groundbreaking findings, “New Rules of the Workplace” that call for HR to completely change its approach to managing change, measuring performance, and creating engagement to truly support business missions and strategies.
The last step in the recruiting process, and often the most onerous can be calling for the reference check. No question that there are quality issues with phone-based reference checking. The common perception is that by and large the only data you’ll get are inaccurately rosy reviews, but the reality is no one can better predict candidate’s performance than those who have worked with them before.
Automated solutions, however, take the guesswork and inconvenience out of reference checking to deliver a process that is both more effective and efficient. In a recent survey by Chequed.com, reference providers were asked if they prefer phone-based to automated reference checking.
The result? 77% prefer automated reference checking to 23% who prefer the traditional, phone-based, method.

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.
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.

Fifty to 60% of companies fail to achieve their goals and objectives (Source: McKinsey & Co and IBM Global Business Services). What can be done about this and whose responsibility is it to see that the situation improves?
The first question is why does this happen with the answer being because employees don’t know what they need to do to help the company achieve its goals and objectives, and/or because they are too preoccupied with personal issues to do what is expected of them.
The responsibility for this rests with the CEO, however he or she can’t do what is needed alone. While Human Resources should be the obvious choice to address this problem it is not viewed as a “line” function as often as it is “staff”, and as a result, they are not called upon to help with goal achievement.
This presentation discusses both the problem (why companies fail to achieve their goals and objectives) as well as what HR can do to gain the trust of senior management regarding their contribution to the overall effort.
The research is clear. Organizations with fully engaged employees experience meaningful results: increased profitability, improved productivity, and lower turnover. The pathway to employee engagement leads directly to the manager.

Green believes managers must enter into every performance conversation with four critical mind-sets. In this interactive and practical webinar, she will explore how each mind-set impacts everyday performance conversations, and she will inspire you to apply the four mind-sets in your organization.
