Employees want to grow and develop. Research regularly shows that having the opportunities to learn new skills and develop professionally are key reasons for joining a business. And for staying with a business too. Most feel they need to learn to help them do their jobs better, which is crucial in performance driven organisations. Professional development is key to having a satisfied and engaged workforce.
It’s well-documented in business today that poor customer service impacts customer retention, referrals and potential new business. Social media has given consumers an open forum to share both good and bad product and service experiences to all who will listen. The same can now be said for discerning job seekers and employees, and for too long candidate and employer experience has been given little attention. What's clear in the research today from the likes of Talent Board and other research firms -- negative candidate experiences can prevent qualified people from applying again, referring others and making purchases of consumer-based businesses. And poor employee experiences can lead to low employee engagement, dismal productivity and poor retention.

This talk will explain why organizations should consider developing formal offboarding programs along with five activities to get your program started.

Even in this day and age, numerous job seekers — and even your own employees — remain digitally disconnected. They either don’t have email addresses, cannot navigate the internet or eschew SMS. It’s true! This digital divide crosses generations, geographies and industries and it’s about much more than tech-aversion. Sharing real-world examples from her experience in various industries, Robin Schooling will discuss how HR technology innovators can understand the needs of the often-forgotten worker and effectively disrupt those who have not yet been disrupted.

I love unique colors and, while I am the queen of a boring black/white wardrobe, I have always admired people who wear bright and unique colors, especially at work.
