Past Webcasts

Last year, Corporations around the world had to navigate through unchartered territory to balance achieving business objectives with supporting their employees through an unprecedented time. Looking forward, leaders must now re-define the onsite employee experience.

Join us on January 14th and hear from DISH's COVID Commander, Laura Tyson, as she shares more about their successful COVID-19 response program, focusing on ensuring the safety of their employees and their customers.

Takeaways will include:

  • Insights and initiatives to help craft a successful COVID-19 response program
  • Best practices for returning employees on-site
  • Strategies for supporting the employee through the transformation

As we wrap up a historically disruptive year and turn our attention to next year, it’s a good time to lift our eyes and scan the world around us for signs of what lies ahead. 2020 was difficult in part because so much of what happened was unexpected and found us unprepared to respond. It’s imperative that we be better equipped to meet the challenges of 2021.

To help us prepare is this month’s guest, Brian Kropp, Chief of HR Research at Gartner. In this month’s webcast, we’ll discuss what Brian and his team have identified as the top trends that will affect HR in the next year including what proactive teams should be doing now to adapt and respond. These trends will include topics such as the gender wage gap, employee monitoring technology, and moving beyond managing employee experience to managing the life experience of employees.

Join Qualtrics XM Scientist Lindsay Johnson, Ph.D. and Benjamin Granger, Ph.D., XM Catalyst for a deep-dive into the surprising findings of the Qualtrics 2021 Global Employee Experience Trends, a study of 11,800 workers. You’ll not only discover the two new top drivers of employee engagement, but see what actions HR teams should prioritize to have the biggest impact on employees in 2021.

It's December, and that means that most of us are thinking about two things: navigating the holidays and planning for next year. 2020 has taken a toll on everyone (to put it mildly). If you are feeling overworked, exhausted, and overlooked, you aren’t alone. But things don’t have to stay this way next year. You can take control of your experience of work, and that starts with betting on YOU.

This month, Jason will be joined by Laurie Ruettimann, author of the new book, Betting on You: How to Put Yourself First and (finally) Take Control of Your Career. A former human resources leader turned writer, entrepreneur, and speaker. Laurie is legendary for providing no-nonsense, straight talk about career, work, and the workplace. Join us as we explore Laurie’s advice on how to take control of your career (and your life) in 2021.

With a vaccine in sight, many look to 2021 with cautious optimism. But at work, frontline and knowledge workers alike face burnout, stress and uncertainty. As enterprises plan 2021 investments, how can they ensure clear and effective communications and increased productivity? Join Rob Ryan, Senior Director of Strategic Development at LumApps -- a leading provider of next-generation intranet and digital workplace solutions -- for a discussion of potential lessons and predictions for a much-changed digital workplace in 2021.

Have you recently taken leave and come back feeling as exhausted as before?

We are currently in the toughest phase of our pandemic experience. To explain, consider two different states of being: fatigue and depletion. Fatigue is when a muscle or the mind has been used almost to the point of failure and it requires rest to recuperate. Contrastingly, depletion is when our inner resources of energy have been drained—and this may have no connection to exertion. One can be depleted without feeling tired. And one can be tired without feeling depleted.

But here’s the problem: Because fatigue and depletion can feel the same, we often misdiagnose our condition. We think we are fatigued, so we rest. But in fact, we might be depleted, in which case no amount of rest will restore our inner resources. When we are depleted, we need restoration rather than rest or relaxation.

In this webcast, David Lapin shares:

  • how to determine whether you are fatigued or depleted,
  • how to treat both,
  • and how to restore yourself so that you can continue leading your teams with energy and inspiration.

As our organizations have been disrupted by the pandemic, the importance of work technology has amplified. Our reliance on these tools to enable and support employees has become mission critical as the workforce has become more distributed and virtual. As more technology is deployed to employees, we hope that it’s having a positive impact - supporting both their engagement and performance. But is it having the desired effect?

On this month’s webcast, we are joined by John Sumser, principal analyst for HRExaminer, an independent analyst firm covering HR Technology and the intersection of people, tech, and work. We’ll explore how 2020 has changed the way we must approach and think about the technology we deploy to support employees.

  • Is your technology making it easier or more challenging for employees to find what they need to do their jobs effectively?
  • How should we be thinking about the role of technology in employee experience in this new reality?
  • And how is 2020 revealing a mismatch between skills and jobs?

And as we do each month, we’ll unpack what steps HR leaders should be taking now to position their organization to succeed in 2021 and beyond.
