    Radio Show #352: How Does Digital Transformation Power Employee Engagement?

    Radio Show #352: How Does Digital Transformation Power Employee Engagement?

    Special Guest: Jessica Rowe: Head of Digital and Cultural Transformation at DIAGMED Healthcare Ltd

    In an increasingly connected world, where digital is influencing organisations in almost every sector, in order to avoid being left behind and stay ahead of the curve, companies need to embrace digital transformation.

    Ultimately, technology is used by people and success is directly correlated with employees being motivated, passionate and invested in the business and therefore their objectives. Digital is at the centre of this transformation, the river that we swim in, and it enables a business to reach all corners from stakeholders to customers to colleagues and suppliers and more.

    Post COVID-19 what does employee engagement mean? When we are scattered, digital is the answer and the only answer to allow all people to be fully engaged and part of a dynamic community.  Through digital you can break down all barriers and become a business without boundaries, one which harnesses true insight to deliver the best experience for customers both internally and externally.

    Join us as we discuss how digital transformation powers employee engagement.

    Radio Show #351: Why Alumni Networks are Critical to our Talent Supply

    Radio Show #351: Why Alumni Networks are Critical to our Talent Supply

    Special Guest: James Sinclair: Chief Executive at EnterpriseAlumni

    EnterpriseAlumni counts customers like LinkedIn, Nestle, HSBC, Wells-Fargo, P&G, CenturyLink, Coca-Cola among others, who have trusted the platform to manage, engage and nurture their Alumni community.

    As every buzzword this year has been around employee experience, transformation and empathy, companies have to recognize that how people leave the company is as important as how they join, not only for the low hanging fruit like access to a talent pool of known people, but also referrals, brand advocates and given many people will stay in the same industry even sales and business development opportunities. Really innovative companies are leveraging their Alumni to bring back those who may have left for a career break or to raise a family and are ready to get back into employment.

    We will be discussing the rapid urgency organisations are taking to setup their Alumni Networks to ensure they maintain communications with people furloughed and more importantly as companies plan for recovery, having access to a talent pool that can called upon quickly and be productive in days (including retirees). The conversation has moved from “Alumni Networks are a nice to have part of the employee experience” to “Alumni Networks are critical to our talent supply”.

    Powering the Alumni Communities of the world’s largest and most respected brands globally; for companies looking to access a contingent labour pool, drive referrals or boomerang hires, accelerate business development, drive sales or just create a positive evangelist community EnterpriseAlumni assists their customers to achieve these goals.

    Join us as we discuss the urgent steps companies are taking to stay connected to former employees.

    Radio Show #350: Empowering Mums to Have a Rewarding and Flexible Career

    Radio Show #350: Empowering Mums to Have a Rewarding and Flexible Career

    Special Guest: Heather Black: CEO and Founder of Supermums

    Heather Black is a wife, mum of two girls, CEO and Founder of Supermums which helps to upskill mums (and dads) back into flexible work in the Salesforce ecosystem.

    When her youngest daughter was born in 2016, Heather knew she had to think differently about work now that she had two children to juggle and a full time job. She realised that Salesforce enabled her to stay working, from anywhere, at anytime. This was the lightbulb moment and Supermums was born. Heather’s background in training and employability alongside Salesforce enabled her to design the perfect programme.

    Since 2016, Supermums has helped over 200 mums and dads. Their mission is to empower mums to have a rewarding career that’s flexible within the Salesforce Sector.

    Salesforce is the world’s number 1 CRM platform and is growing rapidly. A 2019 report found that they are expected to create 4.2m jobs worldwide by 2024. As it’s a cloud based, many of the roles can offer elements of flexible and remote working and due to the lack of available talent, the jobs are well rewarded. This combination makes them ideal for mums; whether they are looking to get back into work after a career break or seeking a change from a role that isn’t offering them the work / life balance they need.

    Many companies have realised that a strong corporate purpose is a strength in the current crisis, from helping employees to stay motivated, to enhancing the loyalty they have earned from customers.

And what can we learn from the leaders and losers in these unprecedented circumstances?

    Radio Show #348: Now More Than Ever, Human Skills Matter

    Radio Show #348: Now More Than Ever, Human Skills Matter

    Special Guest: Pam McLean, CEO and Co-Founder of Hudson Institute of Coaching

    Pamela McLean, PhD, Author of Self as Coach, Self as Leader: The Internal Landscape, is CEO and Co-Founder of Hudson Institute of Coaching, a US-based coaching firm providing a full suite of coaching services to organizations and leaders. Master coach and clinical psychologist, Mclean’s latest book is Self as Coach, Self as Leader. Her previous books include The Completely Revised Handbook of Coaching and LifeForward.

    Pam was there in the beginning when coaching was an emerging field. Now, two decades later, she is even more passionate about the profound power of coaching. She is proud to lead the Hudson Institute, a coaching organization that develops great leaders, ones who make a difference in the lives of others at all levels in an organization.

    Self as Coach, Self as Leader focusses on the concept of the use of self as an instrument—a key dimension in the practice of developmental coaching. While remedial, tactical or performance-based coaching may be sufficient to aid the client over the short term, developmental coaching places emphasis on the whole person. This innovative approach supplies coaches and leaders who are called upon to coach with a roadmap for exploring their internal landscape to strengthen the use of self as the most important tool in coaching. Along the way, both coaches and leaders will learn how to strengthen and harness the six broad dimensions integral to great coaching and great leadership—presence, empathy, range of feelings, boundaries and systems, embodiment, and courage.

    Join us as we discuss the six broad dimensions integral to great coaching.
