FREE 5 Biggest HR Mistakes Small Businesses Make (and How to Fix Them)
Understandably, as a small business owner, you are singularly focused on increasing sales and servicing customers. But with growth often comes the need to hire – and along with that, the burden of complying with complex federal, state and even local employment laws.
It’s a burden that can be tempting to ignore, until your business is faced with a government investigation or an employee lawsuit. And then it’s too late.
This workshop addresses five potentially crippling HR mistakes small-business employers make every day: ..... Treating independent contractors as if they are employees ..... Not properly verifying employees’ eligibility to work in the U.S. (I-9) ..... Not paying employees correctly ..... Practicing or allowing ‘accidental’ discrimination or harassment ..... Not displaying mandatory employee postings.
We’ll explain the related regulations in simple terms and provide practical tips to help you comply. (Aired on 2/1/18)
FREE Death of the Performance Review
According to research conducted by CEB, 90% of managers are unhappy with the way annual reviews are conducted. Another 90% of HR leaders believe the process does not yield accurate information. Worse, annual reviews are incredibly time consuming, with managers spending an average of 210 hours a year and employees each taking 40 hours a year on these activities. While many businesses see a need for radical change in performance reviews, recent research shows most organizations have continued to use antiquated processes.
Organizations need to put their people strategy first and must identify and invest in top performers to do so. How can top performers be identified and nurtured using a traditional performance review process? Research shows the review processes are bogging down workers and managers in too-heavy time investments, inaccurate results and have overall negative impact.
It’s time businesses put the annual performance review to bed and replaced it with something more timely and effective.
In this webinar, we will discuss: ..... Issues with the traditional annual performance review ..... Global and industry trends such as the move to the rating-less appraisal and regular check-ins ..... How continuous feedback can help employees, managers and organizations.
Some of the industry leaders are moving to a people-centric approach that values in-the-moment feedback and coaching in place of high-stakes annual performance appraisals. In this webinar, you will learn what the benefits of this approach to performance reviews and what is the best way to engage, grow, and retain your best talent. Changes to annual performance reviews have far-reaching benefits that come from focusing on people in place of process. (Aired on 12/13/17)

FREE The Hard Truth About Soft Skills: What they are, why they matter, and how to hire for them
The workplace is more demanding, more complex, more collaborative, and more diverse than it has ever been before. And as a talent acquisition professional you know that in order to help your organization succeed, matching the right people to the right job is more critical than ever. But today, almost half of business executives say finding the talent they need to support long-term business strategy is a top challenge. Finding candidates who will excel in this environment means finding people with the right balance of hard skills and soft skills.

However, assessing a candidate’s soft skills, those behavioral attributes that determine how a person interacts with other people, challenges, setbacks and opportunities, can be difficult to quantify and aren’t easily taught. Join us for a live webinar and learn how you can create a hiring strategy that identifies and rewards the right soft skills for the right job.
In addition, you’ll discover: ..... The difference between hard skills and soft skills and why soft skills matter ..... How soft skills differ across the generations .....

FREE What to Expect from I-9 and E-Verify Compliance in 2018
In the wake of President Trump’s “Buy American and Hire American” Executive Order, federal and state agencies across the country are implementing new policies and initiatives which will impact employers’ Form I-9 and E-Verify processes in 2018 (and beyond). The most significant changes involve a renewed focus on worksite audits (which begin with a Form I-9 inspection), a tougher stance on employers who flagrantly violate the law, and various initiatives relating to the E-Verify system and the protection of US workers.
For HR and compliance managers, this is not particularly welcome news. The Form I-9 is already widely considered to be the most complicated employment form in America, with a dizzying array of rules, competing objectives, and unforgiving timelines. Under the Trump Administration’s new initiatives, employers should expect even greater scrutiny of Form I-9 records and policies from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as well as increasing accountability for HR managers and compliance officers. The recently announced $95 million worksite penalty against a Pennsylvania-based utility company serves as a stark reminder: employers cannot remain willfully blind to I-9 compliance and immigration problems.
Now more than ever, employers need to carefully review their hiring policies and procedures to ensure compliance with rapidly changing enforcement directives. Join this informative and educational webinar to learn about upcoming changes to the Form I-9 and E-Verify landscape as well as best practices to ensure your organization can weather the impending “ICE” storm. Topics for discussion will include: ..... The announced five-fold increase in ICE worksite inspections ..... Greater scrutiny into the manner and means of completing the Form I-9 ..... Additional E-Verify Monitoring and Compliance activities ..... Discrimination investigations for unfair I-9 practices ..... New USCIS initiative to validate E-Verify participation by federal contractors and subcontractors ..... State laws affecting I-9 and E-Verify procedures. (Aired on 12/5/17)

FREE How to smoothly transition your company to a new performance management solution
Traditional annual performance reviews are limited by their ability to accurately capture and improve an employee’s performance. The time and effort to execute reviews versus the value they produce leaves much to be desired, and more companies are starting to search for a better process that aligns with their high-performing cultures. As the HR industry recalibrates its approach to performance management, many are left wondering: what would it look like to implement another method of performance management?
Amy Dobler, the former Director of Employee Success at Jive Software, asked this question when she chose to re-evaluate Jive’s review process.

In order to understand what method would engage employees and provide useful data on their performance, she reached out to Jive’s employees and stakeholders for input to create a more strategic process.

FREE A Recruiter’s Guide to Giving the Right Offer the First Time
In a National Recruitment Sentiment Study conducted earlier this year by MRI Network, 52% of job candidates listed competitive compensation as the most compelling of 12 possible reasons for turning down an offer.
In this competitive talent landscape, it’s more important than ever to find the right candidates and create compelling compensation packages for new hires.

FREE From Stereotype to Superpower: How Coaching Can Conquer Myths We Believe About Millennials
Millennials continue to create disruption in the workforce—their values, motivations, needs, and expectations differ so dramatically from previous generations, that today’s employers are struggling to attract, retain, and unleash the talent of this rising generation. Getting millennial workers right is key for two reasons: ..... They aren’t going anywhere. In fact, by 2020, 46% of the workforce will be comprised of millennial workers. By 2025, that number climbs to 75%, with masses of them in leadership roles. This isn’t a trend or a wave, it’s a cultural change and EVERYONE has to change with it. ..... Success depends on their full engagement. Companies who aren’t maximizing the potential of this group today are facing a significant competitive disadvantage tomorrow—it’s not just a question of turnover or even “getting the work done,” that’s at issue. It’s about leveraging an opportunity to work better and differently that’s at stake, and the “this is how we’ve always done it” mindset no longer works. For anyone. ..... So, why the struggle? At heart, Millennials get a bad rap. Stereotypes are the stuff of memes and we’ve got to peel the layers back to get at the truth. In fact, there are four popular limiting stereotypes that many leaders are hanging on to that may block their ability to get at the best Millennials have to offer. By identifying, owning, and seeing the flip side of these stereotypes—perhaps even seeing the “superpower” within each stereotype--leaders can coach their Millennial workers to deliver their best work. And love doing it. ..... In this webinar, explore four primary stereotypes about Millennial workers, including myths around motivation, commuication, groupthink, and entitlement. Learn why these stereotypes exist, as well as the underlying truth and strength in each, plus practical ways leaders of any generation can coach Millennial workers, tapping into their values to grow both the individual and the organization.

FREE Social Media and Employment: Potent Benefits, Easily Avoided Risks
In the world of employment, social media can feel like an unlimited resource of real time insight into a candidate and a cross section of legal landmines for violations of protected class information.
There are risks – both efficiency and legally speaking - to organizations performing a quick “Facebook search” in a sloppy or disorganized fashion. In moral sense, ethical correctness also applies to how a social media screening is done. Simply “Googling” an individual’s name could expose an organization and its employees to severe legal penalties, for example by uncovering information that could lead to discrimination claims.
An effective social media background check through a Consumer Reporting Agency, liable to and governed by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), can reveal a range of disconcerting behaviors that should be carefully considered when evaluating a candidate for employment. Compared to background screens primarily focused on historical data, no other background screening gives you the kind of real-time behavioral data that social media does—uncovering potentially dangerous and hostile workplace safety concerns such as violent threats or bullying, intolerant or derogatory statements against groups of people in a protected class, potentially illegal activity, and sexually explicit material. These types of online behavior are potential per se violations of an employee code of conduct policy and have huge implications for damaging brand reputation.
The risks are very real, but with a little care they can be easily managed, and the rewards can be huge for any hiring firm. Fortunately, it is relatively easy to comply with these regulations if you follow a few basic procedures.
What You Will Learn ..... Areas of concern online for HR: What is relevant to a hiring decision and how to avoid protected class violations ..... How social media background checks can help reduce your risk for negligent hiring ..... Real life “hot water” examples of social media causing consequences for both employees and companies ..... What a thorough social media and online background search should include ..... Compliance rules for conducting an online screening ..... What pitfalls to avoid when scouting a vendor ..... Best practices to include in your social media background screening policy and how it should be communicated. (Aired on 9/27/17)
FREE The True Cost of Bad Hires
In today’s candidate-driven job market, HR professionals are compelled to find qualified candidates without sacrificing time-to-hire and cost-of-hire metrics. However, trying to speed up this process without the right tools in place to help ensure a strong candidate experience can lead to costly hiring mistakes.
Recruiters and hiring managers today are under pressure to find best-fit candidates quickly and cost-effectively — but doing so can come at a high price in the form of bad hires. Too many organizations use inadequate processes to source, track, and evaluate best-fit candidates, leading to bad hires and costly turnover. Is yours one of them?
The proof is in the numbers. A Brandon Hall talent acquisition study showed organizations that invested in a strong candidate experience improved their quality of hires by 70 percent.[1] Do your organization’s talent acquisition processes support the recruitment and hiring of the best possible candidates?
If you’re unsure, register now for The True Cost of Bad Hires webinar. HR experts from Kronos and Brandon Hall Group will discuss how modernizing your talent acquisition processes with a unified, end-to-end technology solution can help you reduce your risk of bad hires — and ensure that your process not only welcomes, but also nurtures and engages new talent.
You’ll learn valuable strategies for recruiting and hiring best-fit employees — including the use of an automated, integrated solution to speed the recruiting and hiring process and reduce the rate of bad hires.
It’s now possible to hire top talent while reducing your risk of bad hires. (Aired on 9/19/17)
FREE Do I Have to Pay for That? Navigating the Common Pitfalls of Wage and Hour Laws
Companies can run into major problems if they fail to pay their employees for all compensable work time. The complexity of the FLSA’s rules and different state requirements—like strict California meal break laws—can cause confusion among employers as to whether certain time counts as compensable work hours. As a result, employers are frequently defending against costly wage and hour lawsuits.
With big verdicts, record settlements, increasing worker awareness, and widespread public attention to how employees are paid, it’s no surprise that the number of wage and hour lawsuits is increasing. Given these factors, employers should tread carefully when determining payment for employees.
Join EPAY Systems and Seyfarth Shaw as we dive into the legal requirements for paying employees for meal and rest breaks, travel time and on-call time.
In this webinar, you’ll get relevant information including: ..... An overview of FLSA and state wage and hour laws ..... Meal and rest break pitfalls and how to avoid them ..... Best practices for properly compensating employees for other tricky things such as overtime, travel time, reporting time and on-call time. (Aired on 8/24/17)
FREE Bring Your Benefits to Life to Engage a Multi-Generational Workforce
In today’s competitive landscape employers must innovate on their compensation packages in order to recruit top talent. As we know, benefits have a strong influence on an employee’s decision to select and remain with an employer. With such a diverse multi-generational workforce, it is no longer sufficient to simply offer a robust package with a variety of siloed and ultimately underutilized benefits. To truly attract and retain top talent, especially Millennial employees, benefits must respond to the individual employee’s needs.
This webinar will feature a case study, presented by Northwestern Mutual. Northwestern Mutual is recognized by FORTUNE magazine as one of the "World's Most Admired" life insurance companies in 2016. (Aired on 8/29/17)
FREE Keeping the Program Alive: How to Build and Manage an Employee Referral Program
We all know referral hiring is the best source-of-hire out there. It’s not only easier to hire a referred candidate, but 70% of employers say referred hires fit the company culture and values better than those from other sources of hire. On top of that, 67% of companies surveyed stated that the entire recruiting process is shorter with referrals and 51% said referred candidates were less expensive to recruit.
The employee referral program is looked at as one of the hardest HR programs to successfully implement and run, yet has the greatest benefits when it comes to overcoming hiring needs.
The development of your company’s employee referral program is no small feat. While most companies define their employee referral program, turn it on, and let it run wild with no real success, others are building internal recruiting operations specific to their referral program and learning how to constantly improve the flow of referrals in order to solve their individual challenges.
This webinar will teach you: ..... How to think strategically about the creation of your employee referral program ..... How to successfully manage your employee referral program ..... How to determine when it’s time to make your first dedicated ERP hire ..... Unique ways to keep internal referrers engaged during both peak and off-peak times.
Whether you’re a small business looking to implement an employee referral program for the first time or a Fortune 500 company looking to keep engagement high while adding layers to your program, this webinar is for you.

FREE Employee Networks - Getting More Work Done Through Shared Expertise
In order to build tomorrow's workforce today, it's time to look beyond the traditional organizational chart. Formalizing employee teams, teams of teams, and networks can stimulate collaboration and unlock undiscovered business value. A networked structure empowers employees to work cooperatively enabling timely, valuable knowledge and insights exchange thus increasing operational efficiency and effectiveness. As employee networks widen and deepen, they can mobilize critical knowledge and reveal key contributors and experts, including marginalized talent, hidden talent and underutilized talent, across the enterprise.
Most executives recognize the importance of this organizational structure shift. According to Deloitte, 92 percent of surveyed leaders believe that redesigning their organization is either very important or important, and thus many are moving away from formal, functional structures and redesigning their organizations to be dynamic, team-based, and network driven. Tools that can help organizations identify the employees who are experts and maximize the viral exchange of their actionable insights help organizations become more agile, responsive to change, and sustainable in a long-term fashion.
If driving better business results is anywhere on your short-list, then you know that employee networks have assumed a place of prominence in both public and private sectors as the foremost means of organizing to solve complex challenges and achieve collective goals. So, it’s unfortunate, at a time when the ability to create business value increasingly depends on experts’ knowledge and the sharing of their curated insights™, that so many HR and other business leaders haven’t done far more to harness the power of informal networks. But, some of the best organizations across the globe have already institutionalized a networked workforce structure, and now is the time to scoop up vital learnings from them.
This webcast in “fireside chat” style among leading network experts will offer actionable insights on: ..... Decoding hierarchical versus matrix versus networked structures ..... Transforming traditional hierarchical or matrixed structures into tomorrow’s new networked model ..... Identifying experts within the networks and leveraging their insights among all network members.

FREE Creating Pay Transparency in the Workplace
Do the words “pay transparency” make you nervous? You don't have to publish every employee’s salary publicly to have pay transparency. It’s about fairness of pay, openly communicating about pay with employees, and helping them understand the importance of maintaining and improving their performance.
If you want to keep high-level employees, you need to be fair and honest with them. Otherwise, they’ll find another organization that values the high level they provide. Your employees are looking up their own market studies. It’s not a matter of “if”. With so many crowdsourcing information tools available; employees do find out if they’re underpaid.
A PayScale study found that the number one reason employees leave a job is because of compensation. Underpaying employees creates a retention problem. But those who are being underpaid aren’t the only employees you’re at risk of losing, even of those people who are paid fair market rates, 64 percent think they’re underpaid. Combine that with the people who you may purposefully underpay and that’s a potentially huge group of people to be concerned about retaining.
Join PayScale and BambooHR as we take a look at the different stages of pay transparency and how you can implement them into your workplace to encourage productivity and improvement.
Participants of this webinar can expect to learn: ..... What pay transparency in the workplace looks like ..... The advantages and disadvantages of pay transparency ..... How you can use pay transparency to encourage improvement and productivity ..... What actions you can take today to make it part of your culture.
By understanding the ins and outs of pay transparency, you can create a workforce that is satisfied in their position and recognizes that their organization values them. (Aired on 8/15/17)
FREE Mindfulness: The Employee Benefit That Creates a Competitive Advantage
No matter how hard you try, as a modern professional you must work in increasingly volatile, unpredictable, complex and ambiguous environments. It’s no wonder that a whopping 83% of employees indicate that “work” is their greatest source of stress. It is taking a massive toll on their engagement, performance, relationships and health. So much so that Americans broke the record for sky high stress levels this year. Something needs to change. And it needs to change fast.
You can’t create a work environment that’s stress free, unfortunately, but you can create a culture of focus, resilience and high performance. We will show you how leading companies are creating mindfulness training programs that outperform the competition. 22% of U.S. companies already offer mindfulness training and 21% more intend to add it their wellness initiative just this year alone.

FREE Employee Engagement: Think Like Your CEO
It is easy to point the finger when it comes to employee engagement. Employees look to the organization to provide meaningful work. The organization looks to employees to find meaning in their work. Like any mutually beneficial relationship, effective workplace engagement requires active participation from both parties. Engagement is more than just “company culture”. It is a comprehensive plan that if implemented properly will contribute directly to the bottom line.
When it comes to an employee engagement plan for your organization, how confident are you that you are on the same page as the CEO? With the day-to-day operations of HR, you have a unique perspective on engagement that your executive team may not see. Likewise, the CEO probably has a few valid concerns and ideas that you may not have considered. If you’re going to tackle employee engagement head-on, you need the green light from everyone.
Join Russel Gerrard, the VP of Operations at HR Performance Solutions and Anna Lim, HR Evangelist at BambooHR for this insightful webinar. They’ll shed some light on the state of employee engagement and present a few take-aways to help you make the right business case to your CEO.
Participants of this webcast can expect to learn: * The current trends, theories, and strategies within employee engagement * How to understand your CEO's employee engagement concerns and earn his or her buy-in * How to improve or implement a strategic, effective engagement plan for your organization
At the completion of this webinar you will have the confidence knowing that including your CEO's perspective in your overall strategy, you will earn the buy-in you need to implement an effective employee engagement strategy. (Aired on 8/3/17)

It is the first time in history that four generations are working together in the workplace. With each generation, there are different values, attitudes and behaviors, and it can be challenging for the HR department to manage. Older workers may think of millennials as entitled and obsessed with technology. Millennials may think of older workers as being too traditional and stuck in their ways.

Join us for this webinar as we explore the differences between each generation – Traditionalists, Baby Boomer, Generation X, and Millennials.
We will take a look at each individual generation and how their learning, interactive, and communication styles differ, as well as how each group views their work. Each employee, despite their generation, wants to feel valued and engaged when they come to work.

Every year PwC globally surveys companies of all sizes and across all industries to spot trends in HRIS.

FREE 5 Keys to Retain Top Talent
A good start to improving the right kind of retention is to make sure you’re paying fairly and competitively to the market. In fact, research shows a link between fair and transparent pay practices, lower intent to leave, and overall greater job satisfaction.
A recent PayScale study found that the number one reason employees leave a job is because of compensation. Underpaying employees creates a retention problem. But those who are actually underpaid aren’t the only employees you’re at risk of losing. Of people who are paid fair market rates, 64 percent think they’re underpaid. Now, combine the people who you may purposefully underpay with the 64 percent of the people you pay fairly and that’s a potentially huge group of people to be concerned about retaining.
If you are underpaying, employees know it. But what an individual doesn’t know is if he or she is the only one being paid a little below market. Jill in customer service might wonder if Bob, who has the same amount of responsibility and experience as she does, gets paid at the market rate while she makes slightly less than the market rate. But with pay transparency, Jill can see that she and Bob make the same wage, and she’ll likely feel more satisfied that—at least compared with others in your organization—she is being paid fairly.
Join Ivan Hurtt from BambooHR and Mykkah Herner from Payscale for this informative webinar where the discussion will fall around how compensation impacts your employee retention, the 3 real truths about turnover and why your employees leave, finishing with the 5 keys to retaining your top employees.

FREE Background Screening-Navigating Regulatory Issues While Protecting Employees, Customers & the Public
Background screening has become increasingly important in today’s competitive, complex and security-minded labor marketplace. Not only must organizations navigate an ever-evolving patchwork of federal and state regulations, they must cope with an emerging “gig economy” characterized by growing numbers of short-term contract and freelance employees.
To gain insight into how companies are managing employee background screens amid this changing landscape, the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) partnered with HR.com to conduct a national survey that drew responses from 1,528 human resources professionals. In this webcast we will discuss our findings, including current trends and practices in the area of background screening.
You will learn how widespread professional background screening has become, the top reasons employers background screen, the primary challenges background screeners face, and what types of background screens are being conducted.
We will discuss the critical issues of accuracy, timeliness and costs. These are of growing importance at a time when many states and locales are considering the removal--or are already removing--identification information such as addresses and dates of birth from public records.
We will report on the degree to which employers are using social media as part of the process and at what point in the hiring process background screening is conducted. Then we will delve into the particulars of which types of background screens are used and what information sources they examine. And answer questions such as - how many organizations conduct fingerprint-based criminal searches? What percentage examine credit histories or verify education?
When it comes to background screening, it is important to get the details right, so we will report on effective ways to determine which components may be included in a background check.
Join NAPBS Chair, Dawn Standerwick, and Executive Director, Melissa Sorenson, as they discuss the results from the survey and how they may apply to your organization.

FREE Investigating the Impact of Performance Reviews on Engagement
Performance management and employee engagement are two of the hottest topics in HR today, but how do they influence one another? To find out, HR.com conducted a survey on this topic in partnership with BambooHR. In this webcast, we start by reporting on new data about how HR professionals view employee engagement and employee discretionary effort (that is, employees’ willingness to go above and beyond the minimum effort required) in their organizations.
Just how engaged is today’s workforce, and how well do engagement scores line up with employee willingness to go the extra mile at work? Then we explore the degree to which specific management practices influence engagement. It has, for example, sometimes been claimed that manager/employee relationships are correlated with engagement levels, so we tested this conventional wisdom. Find out which kinds of relationships tend to work best.
In this webcast, you will also discover how aspects of performance management seem to influence engagement levels. Can the frequency of performance reviews be linked to engagement or discretionary effort? How about the underlying reasons for conducting such reviews? By answering such questions, we gain insights into the best practices associated with the sometimes contentious topic of performance reviews.
You will also learn about which tools and technologies are used to track performance management today. Do some companies still use paper processes? How about spreadsheets? You will find out about the current state of such technologies and what tomorrow may bring.
Join Brian Anderson and Bryson Kearl from BambooHR, as they discuss the results from the survey and strategies that can help you develop more effective performance management and engagement practices. As a webcast participant, you will also receive a copy of the white paper written by HR.com. (Aired on 6/27/17)
FREE The Foundation of Engagement: Five Strategies to Inspire Disengaged Employees
The most magnificent buildings in the world all have one thing in common: they all start with an unseen but carefully calculated and planned foundation. Before any other construction takes place, successful architects consider how they’re going to anchor and support their creations. If the foundation erodes or the building breaks from its anchors, disaster is sure to soon follow.
Developing engaged employees follows the same pattern. While we can easily see the signs of employee engagement or disengagement, discovering the complex causes is much more challenging. First, you need to build a solid foundation of benefits to care for their needs. With this in place, you can then build on that foundation to deliver a great experience and reap the results of employee engagement for your organization.
In this presentation, Cassie Whitlock of BambooHR and Raphael Crawford-Marks of Bonus.ly explore the spectrum of employee engagement and the complicated motivations that determine how your employees feel and behave. You will learn why dissatisfaction and satisfaction are two different considerations. You will learn the signs of a disengaged employee, as well as some of the root causes of disengagement. And you will learn which tools you can use to improve engagement in your employees and move them toward more meaningful contributions.
Human motivations are complicated, but engagement strategies don’t have to be. As you understand the underlying situation for each of your employees, you can take responsibility for your role in their success. Together, you and your employees can develop strong relationships that will help your organization reach its full potential and stand the test of time. (Aired on 6/28/17)
FREE Giving And Receiving Feedback: How To Do It Better
Giving and receiving feedback are skills we can all practice and do better. They can both be an intimidating experience, especially when the feedback is constructive. But that doesn’t make the task any less important for everyone – managers and employees alike. After all, thoughtful, constructive feedback is one way to help employees grow and develop their skills. When delivered effectively, the process also builds trust in work relationships.
So, how do you give better feedback, learn to receive it as the gift it’s meant to be, respectfully discuss feedback you disagree with, and help encourage others to do the same?
We put together this webinar to help you get better at and more comfortable with giving and receiving feedback so you can get the benefit of learning what and how to do better for yourself and others.
We’ll share real-world examples that will help you foster a culture of feedback in your organization and how to: ..... Give more valuable and effective feedback, ..... Receive feedback with greater understanding, ..... Interpret the full meaning and context of feedback, ..... Teach others to give feedback by modeling behaviors, and ..... Disagree with feedback you’re given.
The purpose of feedback is always to help people be their best and take ownership of their development. Beyond that, giving the gift of feedback can help improve employee engagement, retention and productivity. But only if it’s done well. Join us for this webinar to learn useful tips that will help you and others in your organization get better at giving and receiving feedback. (Aired on 6/29/17)
FREE Leveraging HR Analytics in Strategic Decisions
Human Resource leaders are urged to apply big data and predictive analytics to talent, leadership, and organizational capabilities. But too often, today’s HR analytics are mainly used for cost avoidance, not to drive broader strategic success.

Beyond the data and analytics, strategic success hinges on fundamental questions about storytelling, culture, uncertainty, and the connection between artificial and human intelligence. HR analytics leadership should be a priority, but it’s not about simply applying the latest innovations or waiting for HR to deliver new analyses.
True leadership means understanding and enhancing pivotal decisions.

FREE Developing a Leadership Pipeline That Works
Talent Management Executives Share Their Experiences.
Nearly every company recognizes that developing their future leaders is critical. Over the next five years, approximately 72 million Millennials will be in the workforce. As the Baby Boom generation retires – taking their accrued experience and institutional knowledge with them – the need for cultivating new leaders becomes even more urgent.
A recent AMA/I4CP study indicates that only a third of organizations rate their leadership development efforts effective, putting sustained business success at risk.
If organizations recognize that this is such a critical issue, why are so few of them making progress in addressing it?
Ideally, leadership development should be aligned with business strategy, and it should ensure a robust pipeline of people ready to step up to leadership positions. The importance of this alignment and readiness is highlighted by the often urgent, ongoing quest for effective methodologies.
AMA is convening this forum to allow senior talent management executives to share their thoughts and experiences in building and managing leadership pipelines. Join us for a frank and lively discussion addressing key issues: ..... Steps being taken to prepare Millennials for leadership positions ..... What assessments to use for identifying talent for development opportunities ..... The core competencies needed for leaders to be successful ..... How to reinvent the concept of career development to be about the next experience rather than the next promotion.
A well-defined and robust leadership pipeline delivers important benefits to every organization. This program allows you to discover how others are facing the challenges and taking advantage of the opportunities of developing their next generation of leaders. (Aired on 1/20/16)

FREE Revolutionizing Health Care
As health care costs continue to soar, employers face a dilemma: pay more for employees’ health care, which erodes profitability, or shift more responsibility to employees, which damages morale and hinders attracting and retaining top talent.
But there is another option: employers can use their purchasing power and deep supply chain expertise to change the game. Employers can bring unique skills to improve quality, remove waste, and reduce costs.
That’s what Intel has done in forming the Healthcare Marketplace Collaborative (HMC) model — which has the potential to be a game changer. This model, initiated in Portland, Oregon, involves collaborating with other major players in the local health care system to reduce costs and accelerate the pace of change.
On November 17, in a live, interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, one of the leaders in developing and implementing this model, Robert Mecklenburg of Virginia Mason Medical Center, will describe what the HMC model is, how it works, the results achieved, lessons learned, and how this model can be broadly reapplied.

In this webcast we will explore the why, what and how of planning and using an agile talent pool and offer a number of specific ways to ensure success.
Companies are gaining advantage through the strategic use of external experts—made possible by technology and the globalization of talent. Join us as we explore: ..... How agile talent is being deployed in a number of leading organizations ..... Five critical success factors when utilizing agile talent ..... How organizations need to be structured to take full advantage of agile talent. (Aired on 10/5/16)

FREE HR and the Information Agenda
Business transformation is on every organization’s agenda. And information is at the core of every aspect of this shift: how fast companies move, how well they make strategic and organizational decisions, and how well they find patterns in markets and internal operations.
Human resources leaders have become increasingly sophisticated in using technology and analytics for a wide range of HR and talent management practices. But HR analytics cannot be isolated within HR. To add real strategic value to the company, HR expert David Ulrich says, HR leaders need to focus on creating an information capability throughout the entire organization.
In his newest research, Ulrich found HR executives at leading companies taking on a new role in designing and implementing an institution-wide information agenda.
On October 24, in this interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, Ulrich will outline his research and learning and provide a framework for HR’s role in building and sustaining information as a fundamental organizational capability. He will share insights from HR departments that are already playing important roles in the information management agenda by using data to address and solve a wide range of business problems.

FREE Should employees bring their personal lives to the workplace?

FREE How to Maximize the Value of Employee Benefits: Communication is Key
Do your employees know the full details of their benefits? Most organizations need to do a better job of communicating how their benefits policies impact their employees, according to the results of a new survey of over a thousand HR professionals conducted by HR.com and sponsored by BambooHR.
Most of today’s HR professionals tend to be satisfied with the benefits packages their organizations offer. The difficulty lies in communicating these benefits. In this webcast, you will learn about the perceived problems with employee benefit communications as well as some potential solutions, based on the insights of our study participants.
Employees’ benefit usage and understanding is a thorny issue that vexes many of today’s HR pros. For example, we found that less than a quarter of today’s HR pros think that employees take advantage of the available resources in order to get the most of our their company’s benefits plan.
We also explore other key challenges, such as communicating the full value of benefits, getting the most out of employee feedback, and making greater use of self-service technologies and external vendors in order to take the load off of internal HR personnel.
In addition, you will learn about today’s paradoxical view of employee health and wellness. On one hand, most respondents said their organizations care about employee health. On the other hand, today’s HR professionals demonstrate skepticism about management’s commitment to employee wellness and work/life balance.
We will show ways that organizations can make communications more effective, consistent and cohesive in order to maximize their return on their enormous investments in benefits.
Join Daniel Dean, Senior Product Marketing Manager at BambooHR, as he discusses the results from the survey and how they may apply to your organization and as a webcast participant, you will also receive a complimentary copy of the whitepaper. (Aired on 5/2/17)

FREE Can You Buy Employee Engagement?
The extent to which compensation affects employees’ level of engagement is controversial. Workplace experts argue that there’s a strong correlation between what employees are paid and how engaged they are. Academics, however, believe that pay has little relation to satisfaction.
So, why is there a disconnect?
Research shows that a host of factors impact how we feel about our pay, including level of pay, individual motivations for making money, how much those around us make, and our own performance level. Of those, level of pay has the most significant impact on overall feelings of satisfaction – it positively affects engagement up to a specific point, and has drastic negative effects on employees who aren’t making a living wage. And with employee engagement top-of-mind in so many organizations, it’s critical that HR leaders understand these complex relationships that center on pay as they look to design and implement compensation plans.
Join us on April 26th for a webinar that examines our complex individual relationships with pay, and provides practical solutions for HR leaders who want to improve engagement and the overall work experience for their employees. During this webinar, employee engagement expert Jason Lauritsen will join Jake Pacific from Salary.com to explore: ..... The complex role that compensation plays in employee engagement ..... The myriad factors that impact how employees (and HR professionals) feel about pay ..... Why transparency and flexibility are top-of-mind for HR leaders who want to evolve the way their organizations approach compensation programs .....

FREE Creating a Winning Company Culture
In today’s economic environment we are all acutely aware of the ongoing war for talent. Millennials which are quickly becoming the largest segment of the working population have very specific ideas about what they want from the organizations they work for. 91% of Millennials expect to stay with your company fewer than three years.

Those stats are shocking, so what can you do to try and hire talent that will want to stay but also keep the good people that you have now?
Following a national survey of job seekers and HR professionals, 43% said that “cultural fit” was the single most important determining factor when making a new hire.

FREE 10 Tips for Reducing Workers’ Compensation Costs
Rising workers’ compensation costs are among many employers’ greatest concerns, as large-dollar claims against companies—especially those who employ hourly, blue collar workers—continue to rise.
While the laws regarding workers’ compensation benefits vary from state to state, all but one state requires mandatory coverage for private employees. Generally, these mandatory benefits include medical bills, compensation for lost time from work, and permanency benefits for the residual effects of a work related injury. Interestingly, medical services provided on a workers’ compensation case are typically billed at a much higher rate than Medicare, state provided health coverage such as Medicaid, and even private group health insurance. Because of this and other factors, the cost of doing business has taken a significant toll on both the traditional “mom and pop” small employer and large corporations in certain states.
While workers’ compensation coverage is a necessary expense for businesses, there are also many indirect costs of on-the-job injuries and accidents, which go beyond your insurance costs. This may include training replacement employees, investigating claims, repairing damaged equipment and property, and implementing corrective measures. Plus, your business may lose productivity and be forced to deal with lower employee morale.
When it comes to lowering your losses and reducing the total cost of risk, many businesses don’t know where to start, so join EPAY Systems and Knell, O’Connor, Danielewicz for an upcoming webinar as we explore 10 ways to reduce workers’ compensation costs. (Aired on 6/8/17)

FREE Seven Key Strategies for Preventing Employee Turnover
How can employers keep good employees in an age when unemployment rates are dipping down to 5% or below in many nations?
That’s one of the key questions LifeWorks, in partnership HR.com, recently researched. Get the perspectives of employees as well as HR professionals on a series of crucial questions, such as whether organizations are helping employees to reach their potential, providing them with development opportunities, improving their well-being and recognizing them for jobs well done. From this webinar, you will learn what HR professionals believe are the employee issues which require the most attention and then see if those issues correspond with the employee’s perspective?
