Thinking About TLNT’s HPW Summit? Well, Think About HR Guru Dave Ulrich

New TLNT

Way, way back in the summer of 2010, right after launching TLNT, I referred to Dave Ulrich as “an all-around HR Guru” and said he was “one of the greatest HR thinkers of our generation.”

This was probably a bit of an understatement.

The Harvard Business Review describes Dave as “one of the world’s leading human capital/HR experts,” and he certainly is, but he is also a Professor of Business Administration at the University of Michigan and best-selling author of books such as The Why of Work: How Great Leaders Build Abundant OrganizationsandHR from the Outside In: Six Competencies for the Future of Human Resources.

Yes, Dave Ulrich is as close as you get to an HR legend — and that’s why he’ll be speaking at TLNT’s High Performance Workforce Summit May 6-7 in Atlanta. Read more…

Legal Issues, TLNT Events

Ban-the-Box and Other Pre-Employment Dilemmas

Finding qualified applicants for jobs is a constant challenge for reasons that go beyond simply finding individuals with the necessary skills, experience, training and education.

Employers must also identify candidates who fit with a company’s culture, who will work well with others, and who will be trustworthy and help solve, rather than create, employment-related issues.

As a result, many employers have adopted processes designed to identify latent issues with applicants, such as criminal history inquiries and background checks.

While employers took these steps with relatively limited legal restriction or government oversight for many years, trends such as “ban-the-box” are now sweeping the country. Agencies like the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission are taking aggressive action to combat perceived areas for potential discrimination and unfairness in pre-employment inquiries.

Join our free webinar on Wednesday, March 25 to learn more about the current trends and how your can continue to recruit the right candidates while protecting your company from potential litigation.

Our speakers, Foley & Lardner LLP employment law attorneys Christopher Ward and John Litchfield will cover current legislative and enforcement trends and explore the best ways for employers to continue to takediligent efforts to identify strong candidates while remaining on the right side of the law during this season of rapid development.

Who should attend?

If your role involves you with pre-employment checks, you should join us on Wednesday, March 25.

The Art of Making Job Descriptions Work for You

Is writing a job description just one more task that has to be checked off? Do you find yourself reduced to just putting down the basic bullets and pressing send before forgetting all about it?

You’re not alone – but you could be missing out on a great opportunity to attract better qualified talent.

A job description doesn’t need to be a list of clichés and impossible requirements. Instead, it can provide your ideal candidate with a snapshot of life inside your company and the exiting possiblities for the right hire. It can leverage and enhance your brand, building up interest even from candidates who aren’t considering a job move…yet.

In fact, a well written job description is the ultimate sourcing tool. Learning how to polish up your prose to create an attractive picture for candidates will help you stand out from the crowd and attract the talent your company wants to hire.

Join our free webinar on Thursday March 12 for a practical session on polishing up your job descriptions and attracting great talent.

This webinar, led by Jessica Max, of Mighty Max Sourcing, will cover the bigger and more nuanced aspects of writing an excellent job description, including:

  • Where the job description writing process starts;
  • Writing a compelling job description that demonstrates why candidates should want to join you;
  • Having consistent messaging without taking a “one size fits all” approach;
  • Why the process of job description writing is just as much for the recruiter as it is for the candidate;
  • Serving the HR function of describing performance duties, expectations, BQs & PQs, while also engaging your candidates
  • Using job descriptions for corporate branding.

Who should attend?

Join us on Thursday March 12 if you want proven tips and inspiration to bring more pizazz to your job descriptions.

TLNT Webinar: Influencing Behavior and Getting to “Yes”

You’ve come up with a great new approach to a problem, or a new process that will make your team so much more efficient. The problem? You need to get buy in from different people who may not share your priorities.

Ever wished there were steps you could take or words you could say that would increase the chances of someone saying “Yes” to your suggestions?

In the last 30 years, psychologists and researchers have started to come up with some answers, and taken an interest in the subject of how people make decisions, and what impacts the decision-making process, too. They’ve discovered that there are specific behaviors and approaches that we can use to have more influence on the behavior of  people around us.

The secret you need to know

The secret is understanding all of factors, external and internal, that impact the way people make decisions.

Learning more about the psychology of influence and how decision biases work can help us communicate more effectively, influence behavior and persuade our audiences. It can also help us recognize when these tools are being deployed to influence our own decision making and give us greater insight into the factors that affect the decisions we make for ourselves.

Join our free webinar on Thursday, Feb. 26 for a practical session on proven tools and techniques to influence people’s behavior and increase the chances they’ll say “Yes” when you need them to.

During the webinar, our expert speaker, Paul Herbert, will address:

  • Social Psychology principles including reciprocity, commitment and consistency, social proof, and consensus;
  • Decision biases like the Decoy Effect and the Endowment Effect;
  • Ways you can leverage these principles and biases to be more successful when you’re presenting ideas;
  • How to know when the tools are being used on you to nudge your decision making.

Who should attend?

This webinar will be valuable for any professional who needs to sell an idea, get buy in or plans, or simply increase the chance of getting to “Yes.” If that’s you,  join us on Thursday Feb. 26.

The webinar will fill up fast. Register for free to reserve your seat now.
