The Future of HR, Webinars

The Future Of HR Will Be Dramatically Different, So Better Plan Now

New TLNT

FREE WEBINAR:  Wednesday, May 27, 2015 at 2 pm Eastern/11 am Pacific.

You probably already know that we live in an often chaotic and highly competitive business world where there is continuous change and an increasing amount of pressure to increase your business impacts. It is a fact that CEO’s and other executives are increasingly demanding more from HR because they are finally beginning to realize the tremendous impact of our actions on overall business success.

HR is now being expected not just to catch up but to lead other business functions in being data-driven, in our use of technology, in providing the firm with a competitive advantage and in improving our contribution to making the organization faster, more adaptable and innovative.

In the future world of HR, HR leaders won’t be able to get away with simply “declaring that we are strategic,” instead, we will have to prove our strategic impact with dollars and numbers. Each of these individual changes will require HR leaders to “rethink” and redesign nearly every aspect of Talent Management. It’s important to realize that those that are not fully aware of and prepared for this dramatically different future will likely be overwhelmed by it.

So if you want a “heads up view” of the inevitable future of HR, this webinar is a “can’t miss” event. This highly interactive webinar will be presented by well-known TLNT author Dr. John Sullivan, who has a multi-decade proven track record in accurately projecting the future of HR.

Topics to be covered

This webinar is designed to highlight each of the critical areas that will change significantly in the future world of HR. These critical areas include:

  • What are the principles that will guide HR and Talent Management in the future?
  • Who are the benchmark firms that are already leading the way?
  • Which HR programs/processes will become more important and which ones will wane?
  • How can HR first demonstrate, and then increase, its business impact?
  • How historical metrics will be replaced with a forward-looking data-driven HR model that “influences” managers with data and predictive analytics.
  • How new technologies, especially the mobile phone, will change the way that we deliver HR services to managers and employees.
  • The importance of increasing adaptiveness and learning speed to organizational success.
  • How HR can better integrate and coordinate its different Talent Management functions
  • How the speed of change will force HR to build planned obsolescence into every program
  • How building a compelling business case will become critical as HR is required to show its costs and to quantify the impact of each program in order to prove its ROI.
  • How the backgrounds and capabilities of those that work in HR are already changing

Big data and predictive analytics are gaining in importance in HR, and they’re certainly garnering a lot of buzz. But what do these, and related terms actually mean, and how can they help you to improve the talent acquisition function?

One of the challenges for leaders is sorting out the hype from the real areas of opportunity. While some organizations are already capturing and analyzing huge amounts of data in the hope of gaining competitive advantage and streamlining recruitment costs, many more are at a much earlier stage. Data-driven talent acquisition processes are coming but with vendors pushing different solutions and no real consensus yet on the new approach, where are HR leaders to make a start?

During the webinar, we’ll answer some of those questions and explore how practitioners can make best use of data and analytics. You’ll learn:

  • How to be a better consumer of analytics in HR;
  • What people mean by Big Data, Predictive Analytics, Machine Learning, etc;
  • How to get started with advanced analytics.

Join our free webinar on Thursday, May 21 for a practical take on what big data and predictive analytics can – and can’t – do for HR.

Our speaker, Andrew Marritt will cut through the hype and share his perspective on the sort of strategic workforce questions that can reliably be informed by data.

If you’re interested in what big data can really do for the HR and talent recruitment functions, and want an unbiased expert perspective, this is a great place to start. Join us on Thursday, May 21.

5 Ways to Make a Contingent Workforce Program More Strategic & Compliant

Contingent workers provide great flexibility to companies looking for specialist skills on an as-needed basis.

Given the advantages, it’s no wonder that the use of contingent workforces continues to grow at a rapid pace. However, that growth also brings challenges as contingent workers are often managed piecemeal by separate departments using different vendors and various processes. The result can be a fragmented system that opens a company up to inefficiencies and compliance risks.

Third party vendors have developed solutions aimed at helping companies streamline and manage the growing contingent workforce but with all the options available, how can you determine which one will work best for your company?

The webinar will cover why companies turn to third parties and provide an overview of Contingent Workforce Models, including Vendor Management Systems (VMS), Managed Service Providers (MSP) and Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO). We’ll examine five (5) key areas that you can focus on when deciding on the right program for your circumstances:

  • Program structure;
  • Supplier management;
  • Cost, value & quality;
  • Compliance and risk;
  •  Data & analytics.

Join our free webinar on Thursday, April 2 to learn more about Contingent Workforce Models and how to work effectively with third-party suppliers.

Our speaker, Julia Levy, will share best practices around VMS, MSP and RPO and how her company, Assurant is using their programs to drive efficiencies and meet business growth demands. She’ll also dispel some of the myths associated with supplying talent through a third-party talent model.

You’ll leave the session with tips on how to work with third party suppliers and metrics that go beyond time and cost.

If you’re weighing Contingent Workforce Models or want to get more out of an existing system, join us on Thursday April 2.

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.
