Why Companies Need To Put Employee Well-Being At The Top Of Their Priority List

3 days ago | Kristi Sanders

Many people think that employee well-being is a “soft” initiative.  These same people would likely argue that their organization needs to focus on sustaining business operations, decreasing costs, and increasing employee engagement and productivity.  What people fail to realize is that investment in well-being motivates and enables the workforce to better execute company strategy.  If you want to learn how to drive company performance, retain employees, and improve employee engagement, join this podcast from HCI and SAP SuccessFactors.  In addition to helping you understand how important it is to focus on well-being, we will help you understand how you can get started in your organization.

Join Shastri and his partner, Aon’s People Analytics Practice Leader, Ranjan Dutta, to learn about building workforce planning capabilities, how new tech can (and should) help the process, and what matters most in using strategic workforce planning and people analytics to leverage data.

Strategic Workforce Planning and People Analytics Linked by Change, Tech and Data

September 17, 2018 | Neil Shastri, Ranjan Dutta

Workforce strategy and people analytics are “absolutely complimentary,” according to Aon’s Director of People Analytics, Neil Shastri. Strategic workforce planning isn’t going anywhere, which makes the need for core skills among people as important as ever: teamwork, learning comprehension and long-term planning ability, for example. 

As the rate of change in the workplace picks up, each shift makes workforce planning even more relevant to all employees that contribute to business success. Organizations and their people must be ready to adopt new processes and best practices, especially among the rise of digital transformation, new technology and bucket loads of data.

Performance Management Done Differently Outshines the Baseline

September 10, 2018 | Ben Eubanks

Performance management is among the top areas where organizations must stay on the cutting edge of trends and developments in best practices. At its core, performance management is a fundamental, human process with many moving change management parts. Even though tech, AI and talent mobility shift, the human part of the process still matters. 

The companies that are the best at performance management excel because they do things differently. In fact, they do at least five things differently, including recognition and in-the-moment manager feedback. There are three more, but we’ll let you listen to the podcast instead of risking a spoiler alert!

Big Data Brings Big Change to the Recruiting Table

August 27, 2018 | Michael Guglielmo

Leaders say data that’s associated with large databases can guarantee the right talent takes the right roles in your company, but using big data proves to be quite challenging. Recruiters have their work cut out for them in today’s war on talent. The correct use of big data in talent acquisition comes from understanding that there’s more to do then data mine the path to top candidates.

Finding Balance: Candidate Experience Combines People, Tech

July 16, 2018 | Paul Hamilton

Ensuring that today’s organizations deliver a positive candidate experience means HR professionals have to land in a happy medium – one that incorporates technology and people.

A candidate experience, according to Humber River Hospital’s Director of Talent Management and Workforce Analytics, Paul Hamilton, “refers to the sum of every interaction a candidate has with your organization during the attract, recruit, hire and onboarding experience. You need to have a candidate strategy that defines and outlines all of the actionable and measurable plans in place to deliver a positive, meaningful and engaging experience across each of those touch-points and interactions.”

“We have to remember that [technology] is an enabler and not the silver bullet solution that some folks are making it out to be,” Hamilton said. “It’s about finding the right balance of leveraging technology solutions and creating an environment that still allows for human connection.”

This podcast reveals how a winning candidate experience strategy works when balanced, why candidates should be treated like customers, and how to organically measure your candidate experience.

“Day Zero” is The New “Day One” for Onboarding, Engagement

July 2, 2018 | Bek Chee

When fresh, new faces of top talent join your team, the best onboarding practices begin before the employee’s first day with your workforce.

The time between the job offer being accepted and the end of the employee’s first day – “Day Zero” engagement – is powerful and meaningful for new hires and so the employee’s experience should follow a careful design to jumpstart their journey.
