Recent Webinars a Business Case for HR Initiatives



Date: March 16, 2016

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET


Human capital is increasingly recognized as a fundamental driver of business success—or failure—and, therefore, an essential business priority. Quite simply, top-quartile companies that invest in talent achieve more growth in total shareholder return than bottom performers. How can HR leaders link strategy to sustained value creation, ensure that this vision is prominent within the C-suite and that accelerating value is seen as a core capability of the CHRO role?


Broadening the view and scope of the HR profession opens the door to new impact and possibility. This is the time to think big. It is an understatement to say that we are on the precipice of a sustained period of change. Rather, this is an inflection point for our profession and we have a choice: We can play it safe, making small adjustments, or we can embrace the challenge of transformation and driving sustained value. We need to anticipate the shifts ahead and respond with bold and proactive strategies.


In this webinar, Eva Sage-Gavin, a board director, senior advisor with BCG and G100, and former CHRO with more than 30 years of experience in human resources at Fortune 500 companies, including PepsiCo, Gap Inc., The Walt Disney Company and Sun Microsystems, will explore approaches for influencing the board of directors and C-suite executives addressing issues such as:


·         How can senior HR leaders orchestrate integrated talent plans, from strategy to execution, that deliver demonstrable business results?

·         How do leading companies leverage data analytics to demonstrate the business impacts of proposed initiatives?

·         How can HR leadership influence CEOs, C-suite colleagues and the board of directors to gain support for critical HR initiatives?

·         What skills are needed by senior HR leaders to influence strategic direction, drive investment and deliver value?

Maximizing Analytics: The New Center of Expertise





Date: January 26, 2016

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET


People analytics is emerging as a new discipline within HR that brings together traditional talent and HR data with the new data streams coming from mobile apps, engagement apps, feedback apps and network analysis. These new data streams are creating the capability to build a highly valuable database about what people are doing, their history and experiences at work, and how they progress in their career.


Today, many organizations measure retention, turnover, compensation and quality of hire. Soon they may be measuring people’s social networks, their behaviors, their location, and maybe even their heartbeats.


In this webinar, Josh Bersin, principal and founder of Bersin by Deloitte, shares 10 research-based insights about this new world of people analytics and discusses:

·         Why HR leaders cite analytics as one of their top priorities for 2016;

·         How some organizations are leveraging analytics to help improve a range of business functions, from productivity and sales to customer retention and product mix;

·         The role analytics can play in reducing accidents, errors, fraud and downtime losses; and

·         Ways organizations can harness the predictive power of analytics models to predict who is likely to leave, what to do to attract great people, and what it will take to build great leaders.

The Candidate Experience: Creating a Better Experience for Job Applicants


Date: August 25, 2015

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET


As the economy continues to improve and voluntary turnover inevitably increases, the way most employers find employees-and, more importantly, the way many employees find employers-has changed to reflect the transparent world we live in, resulting in a more candidate-driven labor market. Employers of all sizes are responding by assessing their employment brands and, in many cases, embarking on a journey to reinvent themselves and strengthen their ability to attract and retain top talent. But why is it so hard for some employers to keep potential candidates interested, on their "hook," so to speak? 

While there are no simple answers, many employers have begun focusing heavily on fostering better candidate experiences. From early talent attraction through the completion of onboarding activities, employers should consider the needs and desires of the talent they seek, especially those organizations whose candidates are also potential consumers. During this webinar, Robin Erickson will examine the potential value of the candidate experience as it relates to your organization's total talent strategy and explore ways that organizations can drive programmatic efficiency throughout the entire process. 

Topics covered will include: 

• Components of an effective candidate experience strategy; 

• Ways to differentiate your approach to engaging various candidate audiences; 

• Opportunities to leverage business leaders for each step of the candidate journey; and 

• Lessons from the front line of organizations that are optimizing efforts.

She led Deloitte's global Talent 2020 longitudinal survey series and has authored several Deloitte publications, including The Talent Paradox and Where Did Our Employees Go?
