Free Webinar: Enabling your business to deliver workforce agility with Anaplan

Hosted 27th January 2022

The ability to attract and retain qualified talent remains a top concern for most business leaders and executives, but these challenges have been compounded by the pandemic, causing shifts in the workplace, people moving between and out of jobs, and rising salaries and wages.

Join our webinar to discover the best way to eliminate siloed planning and foster real-time collaboration across your business functions. Phil Anderson and Anaplan Vice President, HR Practice Rupert Bader will discuss how you can:  

 - Save time and costs by eliminating cumbersome spreadsheets
 - Bring transparency to your workforce and manage key metrics for talent costs
 - Create a comprehensive, up-to-date digital model of your organisation to streamline workforce planning and increase business impact and resilience
 - Drive engagement and collaboration on talent and budget decisions that are aligned with business strategy and priorities

Talent continues to be one of the biggest risks and costs to many organisations today, with all eyes on HR to effectively utilise data to ensure the workforce aligns with objectives for business growth and success.

Free Webinar: Contact & Call Centres Re-imagined - Planning Flexible Workplace Strategies for the traditionally non-flexible business. Sponsored by Anaplan

23rd September 2021, 12:00

Remote and hybrid work was historically seen as only for the lucky few, and certainly never for the likes of contact or call centre workers. That all changed when the pandemic sent all non-essential workers around the world home. It not only worked – many businesses saw productivity increases.  Twelve+ months later, with lessons learned, the question on many leaders’ minds for their business critical contact centres, is should we bring them back?

The right decision is not obvious, and must be anchored to the business goals and strategy. We will spend this session sharing approaches and highlighting some of the dependencies and variables to consider as you navigate the future of work for your organisation.

Free Webinar: A culture is only as strong as its weakest leadership from Rising Vibe

Watch at your own pace

Your organisation is passionate and committed to creating a high performing culture. You invest in your people, and focus on leadership development to grow both the business and nurture your talent. BUT. All it takes is one leader who is not role modelling, leading by example or walking the walk to blow it up. Unfortunately we are hard-wired to scan for danger and look for threat on a ratio of 5:1. In simple terms this means it takes 5 effective leadership interactions to negate the impact of just one ‘weak’ leadership interaction.
