Following on from our hugely successful HR Summit in June, IBM Kenexa is taking to the road over the coming months. By ensuring we are always “continuously conversing” with key professionals in their sectors, our aim is to help you and IBM Kenexa understand the people needs for the future.

With the rapidly changing business and landscape in the UK in 2016, never has it been more important to come together as HR and Business Leaders to share experiences in key people topics to get the best insight you can for critical workforce decisions in the next few years as the impact of Brexit materialises into tangible economic change.
 
So we would like to invite you to come and meet us and other like-minded people on our upcoming UK roadtrip. We have created Roundtables around the theme of how to “find, develop and listen to your people better - to engage and boost results”.

Our series of three Roundtables are:

Roundtable 1:  The path from annual survey to 365 dialogue

Roundtable 2:  The urgency of having the right people, in the right place, at the right time

Roundtable 3:  Exploring the Future of LEarning

We will be running these Roundtables in London, the Midlands and the Scotland during September 2016 (exact dates and times are at the bottom of this page). Places are limited to a maximum of 10 per Roundtable to ensure an interactive and informal event. IBM are pleased to be running these events with our HR Specialist Business Partner, Tap'd Solutions.

Find out more about each Roundtable and then register for a date and location that is convenient for you at the bottom of this page:

ROUNDTABLE 1:  THE PATH FROM ANNUAL SURVEY TO 365 DIALOGUE

The rise of social media, coupled with the desire to build more engaged and productive workforces, has brought “active employee listening” to the forefront of management attention. No longer is it enough to encourage employees to speak up about topics once a year. Organisations today need to more actively solicit, analyse and engage in ongoing conversations with past, present and even future employees.

Business professionals acknowledge that having access to a collective 'employee voice' will help leaders achieve diverse goals; including identifying innovations and improving productivity, but what are some of the key considerations for making this vision a reality?

Our roundtable will provide an opportunity for you to explore this topic and network with fellow HR & Business leaders to better understand the journey from the realities of today to the future of 'employee voice'.

In our discussion we will explore topics such as:

  • What solutions are you currently using to listen to your employees better?
  • What challenges do you currently face around the concept of 'continuous listening'?
  • What about the culture of your organisation will help or hinder 'continuous listening'?

ROUNDTABLE 2:  The urgency of having the right people, in the right place, at the right time

Organisations know the importance of having the right people, in the right place, at the right time. However, to achieve this HR teams focus on generating a talent pipeline; operational teams focus on scheduling to drive productivity; whilst finance are trying to measure the combined outcomes of these efforts. Generally this is poorly executed and efforts are not “joined up.”

As today’s business world is growing in complexity, industry experts agree that organisations with sophisticated workforce planning will have competitive advantage today and into the future. These organisations will be best placed to face the challenges of the ageing population, a growing contingent workforce, global skill shortages, digitalisation, and the rise of automation.

Our roundtable will provide an opportunity for you to explore this topic with fellow HR & Business Leaders, learning from others how their organisations are planning for an uncertain future.

In our discussion we will explore topics such as:

  • What are the realities of workforce planning in your organisation today?
  • How do your talent acquisition, succession and skills management strategies currently align to your business priorities and the external environment?
  • What is the future of workforce planning, and what steps are organisations taking to get there?

ROUNDTABLE 3:  Exploring the Future of LEarning

The last decade has seen unprecedented changes in how we learn and acquire new information in our day-to-day lives. Today, we can learn instantly; whether it’s your favourite recipe from the hippest restaurant in town or learning mindfulness from the most downloaded app. The information is usually only a click away and in a format that works for you.

So, why are organisations not keeping pace with learning habits outside of work? Making significant changes to how we learn at work gives organisations a real opportunity to deliver individualised learning to its employees, that’s driven by customer and business demands.

Our Roundtable provides the opportunity for you to share your experiences and network with fellow HR & Business leaders. We’ll explore the latest thinking around the future of learning and how to harness this inside your organisation.

Discussion topics include:

  • What possibilities exist within the future of learning? What does this mean for existing L&D professionals?
  • What examples of learning excellence currently exist within your organisation?
  • How are your employee’s expectations changing and what are you doing to address this?
  • What are some of the currently organisational constraints which are a barrier to social learning?

Roundtable Locations:

We understand that the needs and requirements of workforces could vary with location. Therefore we have chosen three locations across the UK to focus our discussions on regional variations in addition to Roundtable themes. On this occasion our roadshow will be visiting London, Warwick and Edinburgh.
