Workforce Planning and Analytics: How to Create or Advance Your Organization's Ability to Generate Actionable Workforce Insight

Date: October 29, 2014

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET

 

Workforce planning.  Workforce analytics.  Predictive analytics.  Scenario planning.  What do all these terms mean?  Do they represent valuable services, or are they words some are using today to merely sound smart?  In other words, are these services a non-negotiable in the new economy, or are they still a nice-to-have? Answer: They’re non-negotiable! Generating meaningful and actionable workforce insight is now an organizational requirement.  Leaders who fail to invest in such initiatives are not leveraging their data assets—the data residing within the multitude of systems throughout the employee life-cycle; data representing everything from recruiting and selection, to learning and engagement, to performance and compensation. As a result, these leaders are incurring unnecessary risk for their organizations and, frankly, being irresponsible. In contrast, those making such investments are incurring less business risk through better business continuity, recruiting and development efficiency, and elevated confidence that future talent-related investments will reap the desired return.

In this webinar, Al Adamsen, founder of the Talent Strategy Institute, will explore how organizations that have an ongoing workforce planning and analytics capability are applying new measurements, new processes and new technologies to transform HR and enhance its effectiveness. In the end, participants will walk away with a better understanding of what’s working, what’s not and what the future holds, along with how to bring that future to life.

About the Presenter:

Al Adamsen is a globally recognized thought leader, advisor and educator in the areas of talent strategy, workforce planning and analytics, talent measurement, and organizational change.  He’s the Founder & Executive Director of the Talent Strategy Institute (TSI), a global association committed to expanding the generation and use of meaningful workforce insight.  Before founding TSI, Al held leadership roles at Ernst & Young and Gap Inc.  Over his career he’s served clients such as Disney, Starbucks, Boeing, Comcast, Heinz, Mayo Clinic, Stanford University, among others.

Generation Z: Understanding the Next Generation of Worker

Date: Oct. 28, 2014

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET

 

Having grown up post 9/11, in the wake of the great recession and always connected online, Gen Z is an emerging group that your entire company needs to understand. Gen Z represents 23 million Americans born between 1994 and 2010. Dan Schawbel has spent the past year learning about Gen Z through a research study that spanned the globe, from America to Canada to South Africa. The first of its kind, the study sought to understand the implications of this generation from both a workplace and consumer perspective. Schawbel found that while Gen Y is more optimistic, Gen Z is realistic and has a strong sense of career management, philanthropy and entrepreneurship. This self-sufficient and tech-savvy generation poses new threats and opportunities for HR professionals and managers. In this session, you’ll learn the specific steps employers need to take to successfully attract and retain this generation of worker—and fully integrate these individuals into the workplace.

Among other things, attendees will:
* Figure out how Gen Z is different than Gen Y, Gen X and boomers and how best to connect with this generation;
* Learn about their workplace preferences, values and career goals—and the most effective way to incorporate this information into your hiring and managing strategies; and
* Hear different case studies of companies that are already successfully connecting to Gen Z.

About the Presenter
Dan Schawbel is the managing partner of Millennial Branding, a Gen Y research and consulting firm. He is the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Promote Yourself: The New Rules For Career Success (St. Martin’s Press) and the #1 international bestselling book, Me 2.0: 4 Steps to Building Your Future (Kaplan Publishing), which combined have been translated into 15 languages.

HR Tech in 2014 and Beyond: The Big Themes HR Leaders Need to Understand

Date: August 20, 2014

Time: 2 p.m. ET

 

Like all technology categories, the market for HR Technology solutions has undergone significant and important changes in just the last few years. From smaller solution providers being gobbled up by larger enterprise players, to the continued rise and now near total dominance of cloud-based HR solutions, to the increased adoption by employees and organizations of mobile devices as the critical gateway to enterprise technologies, and the development of brand new tools that help HR leaders answer long-standing problems in new ways, the HR technology landscape is almost unrecognizable from only a few years ago.

Additionally, HR leaders today must also consider the heightened demands of employees for HR solutions that are exceedingly easy to use, provide HR and talent information at the time, place, and in the right workplace context, and actually help them and their teams perform better (while improving efficiency and lowering costs).  HR Technology solution providers, both new and established, are responding to these challenges, delivering more capability and innovating in all manner of solutions – Core HR, Benefits, Talent Management, Recruiting, and more. New HR technologies offer substantial opportunities to increase employee engagement while serving important organizational objectives. But with all this innovation, the HR leader’s task becomes more complex - making the right choices about HR Technology harder than ever before - just as those choices become more important for the organization.

In this Human Resource Executive Magazine Webinar sponsored by Castlight Health, HR Technology Conference Co-Chair Steve Boese and Trish McFarlane, VP of HR Practice and Principal Analyst, Brandon Hall Group, will break down the most important themes in HR technology today and highlight how the speakers and exhibitors at the upcoming HR Technology Conference will focus on these trends.  Drawing from industry research, practical experience, and from the development of the program for the Conference, this webinar will help HR leaders understand these trends in HR Technology, what they mean for organizations right now, and what they as leaders can do today to take advantage of them. Attendees will emerge with a good understanding of what is currently driving the HR Technology market, and what to look for when evaluating solutions for their organizations.

Building a Better Boss: Engaging Managers to Inspire and Engage Workers

Date: August 13, 2014

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET

 

Study after study has established that the single most important factor in employee productivity, quality, morale and retention is the relationship between employee and manager.  Yet recent research from Bruce Tulgan and RainmakerThinking Inc. finds that “The Under-management Epidemic,” first revealed in their 2004 landmark study, rages on 10 years later.  According to the study, nine out of 10 leaders and managers are not providing their direct reports with sufficient guidance, support and coaching. 

Wherever it occurs in an organization, under-management has huge costs:

•             Unnecessary problems occur,
•             Problems that could have been solved easily turn into bigger problems,
•             Resources are squandered,
•             People do their basic tasks incorrectly without even knowing it,
•             Low performers hide and collect paychecks,
•             Mediocre performers struggle because they need help,
•             High performers get frustrated and leave, and
•             Managers spend too much time on tasks that should be delegated.

Bruce Tulgan and his company, RainmakerThinking Inc., have been conducting research on supervisory relationships in the workplace for 20 years. Bruce has worked with hundreds of HR leaders to help them recognize and combat under-management in their organizations.   In addition, Bruce has counseled thousands of managers in organizations of all types and sizes on how to work closely with HR to get the tools, training and techniques necessary to practice the fundamentals of management very well.

After this webinar, participants will be able to:

•             Recognize the signs of under-management (hint: It is often hidden in plain sight).
•             Help leaders in your organization foster strong, highly engaged leadership at all levels.

As a bonus for registering and attending, Achievers will provide participants with a complimentary report titled The Secret Weapon to Driving Employee Success.
