May 19, 2022

Moving to Salary Transparency

 

It's becoming cool - and in a growing number of regions, it's also becoming law. Publishing how much you pay for a certain role has a number of strong arguments for: more equitable income, remove bias, upgrade employer brand / reputation, perhaps even improve recruitment efficiency by providing a mechanism for self selection by candidates.

 

So, what do you do when you want to move to salary transparency? We are talking to recruitment managers who have overseen this move and figure out what they know having seen it and done it.

 

- Was there resistance?

- How bad was the attrition?

- What happened to legacy salaries which were now out of level?

- What is the impact on hiring for candidates, especially in this hyper competitive market?

- Who was most for / against the idea in your business?

- How has salary transparency changed recruiting?

 

All this and more with Annie Jackson, Head of Talent Acquisition (CLEO), Mick Griffin, Chief Growth Officer (TRAFFIT), Raluca Jamault-Otelea, Talent Acquisition Director (360Learning), Matt Bradburn, Founder (People Collective) & Jessica Zwaan, COO (Whereby)

Solving Recruitment: Strategic Workforce Planning

 

Don't you feel that recruitment is generally moving from one crisis to another? It seems there is NEVER a moment when recruitment is steady, under control, low stress, high confidence project. Instead, it's a fire that we need to put out yesterday. Why is this - why can we not plan our hiring in more strategic way?

 

You will learn

 

- What is strategic workforce planning

- Why does it not happen enough?

- Key blockers to implementing strategic workforce planning

- What is the role of TA vs HR in planning hiring?

- How to build better relationships with stakeholders in hiring

- What technologies support SWP?

- How can ATS / HRIS data be used to support better planning

- How do we know it is working, if we feel we have implemented SWP?

 

All this and more as we tackle the lack of planning in hiring. With Perry Timms, Founder (People & Transformational HR), CJ Green, Founder (Brave Goose) & Danny Hodgson, CEO (Foresight)

The current approach to ED&I isn't working. In fact, not only is their scepticism and levels of mistrust from candidates around data collection, but 80% feel processes would be fairer if recruitment simply remained anonymous. And they might be right.

It's time that we stopped seeing ED&I as a tick box exercise, and start putting vital data to good use.

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep151 - Leadership Fitness(In A Remote First World)

April 15, 2022

Leadership Fitness (For a Remote First World)

 

A cynical take on why execs vs employees are divided in their attitude to WFH is that managers don't know how to do their job when they are not 'overseeing' their team and hence insist on 'back to the office'. And yet the logic of the remote or at least hybrid working is irresistible and perhaps a significant percentage of leaders trained in the on premise style may struggle to be effective in this new future we find ourselves in. What do leaders need to do be 'future fit' for a remote first world?

 

This is topic of Brainfood Live On Air

 

You will learn

 

- Differences between Leadership vs Management

- Key skills needed for leadership in the remote teams

- Why these are important

- How to develop these skills, whilst in the role

- How can institutions help develop the leadership skills of the future

- What the implications are of this new style of leadership, in terms of demographics, DEIB, and rising to the top

 

All this and more in this Brainfood Live special, where we are live with a 1-2-1 conversation with the amazing Dr Richard Claydon, Chief Cognitive Officer, EQLAbs
