Brainfood Live On Air - Ep99 - Employer Branding Tips for a Remote First World

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep99 - Employer Branding Tips for a Remote First World

March 5, 2021

LETS FACE IT: Pre-covid, a great deal of Employer branding was focused on the physical space of the office building and the on premise experience that new employees could expect to have upon joining.. This was the reason for the huge investment employers made in commercial real estate, opening up space for WeWork (remember them?) to create a category which promised the experience without the fixed costs.

NOW THIS,

- we're all at home, working remote
- we don't care about the conditions of the office
- we're beginning to not care about the location of the office

WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN FOR EMPLOYER BRANDING?

How do companies communicate their EB when the physical environment isn't going to change for the employee? Some top tips on how to do this from our guests this week - Steve Ward (Universum) Heidi Wassini, Global Talent Acquisition. Helen Durkin EB Program Lead, Indeed.com  & Employer Branding Partner, Vivino & Akbar Karenga Head of Talent (Storyblok)

THE DARK SIDE OF LINKEDIN: DEALING WITH BULLIES, STALKERS & TROLLS

If you're a follower of this channel chances are you use LinkedIn every day as part of your essential toolkit as a professional in the people business.

And yet, there is a price to be paid when you are a user of the platform where anyone can sign up, anyone can post, anyone can comment or message. Some of us - by dint of gender, ethnicity, professional role or something else, can be a target more than others.

This week's brainfood is a change of pace - lets have a think about how other people experience LinkedIn and how best to deal with troublesome or malevolent interactions we might encounter there.

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep97 - How to get DE&I out of HR, and into the business

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep97 - How to get DE&I out of HR, and into the business

February 19, 2021

A big problem with DE&I is that it is considered a topic 'for HR'. And HR can often by at fault, taking 'ownership' of DE&I initiatives and inadvertently preventing the ideas from really embedding into the rest of business.

Its time for change folks - and that change has to be on how we get DE&I out of HR and into the rest of the business!

We're going to be joined by an ensemble guest lists including Vessy Tasheva (inclusion specialist & consultant), Rocki Howard (Head of Diversity), non-HR managers who have taken leadership roles in DE&I - Garry Turner (IMCD Group), Jessy Halison (ecosia), African Munoz (LinkedIn), as well as by recruiters who are responsible to top of funnel acquisition of candidates (Katy Peichert).

Kind of a can't miss folks

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep96 - People Analytics…..or Bossware?

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep96 - People Analytics…..or Bossware?

February 12, 2021

The shift to remote has had the effect of digitising previously analogue processes. This is lead to a bloom of workforce data which we previously could not collate or make use of. We are now swimming in data which can used to better understand employee sentiment and productivity, skill distribution across the company, how time is spent doing what.

There is a conundrum though - at what point does the burgeoning new discipline of 'People Analytics' become 'Bossware' or workforce surveillance?

What is the difference between caring about employees mental health vs intrusion onto people's personal lives?

This is the topic of Ep96 of Brainfood Live On Air. If you care about what to do with the data your employees are now producing - and how to use this effectively AND ethically

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep93 - Recruitment Forecast Australia and New Zealand 2021

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep93 - Recruitment Forecast Australia and New Zealand 2021

January 30, 2021

In Ep86, we talked about universal values & concepts in recruitment and wondered how they really applied to local contexts. This is especially important given that the ideas driving the industry come mainly from one place - the United States of America - with its own unique history and cultural context

How do these ideas apply Down Under? We're looking at Australia and New Zealand - culturally linked to Mother England but divergent now is so many ways that its been a long time since they could be considered 'the same'.

Lets look beyond shared language and lineage and speak to recruiters from ANZ and whether universal ideas apply.

What do our friends down under think about
- DE&I
- Politics in the workplace
- Remote working
- Artificial intelligence
- Data protection and privacy
- Workforce automation
- Candidate experience
- Employer branding
- Open Talent marketplace
- and more

Essential viewing if you are in ANZ, plan to be in ANZ or have recruiting in ANZ.
