Conferences

We're speaking at the CIPD Annual Conference - 5 November

We’ve been accepted to speak at the CIPD Annual Exhibition on 5 November 2015 in The Insights & Behavioural Science Theatre.

Our interactive session ‘The future’s bright: Engaging, developing and retaining a diverse, multi-generational workforce’ will  use case-studies from a cross-section of organisations to highlight progressive strategies for developing and managing emerging talent and working across generations.

We will also be exhibiting so if you can’t make the presentation, do come along and see us on our stand.

Next stop.... CIPD annual conference

Come and meet us on stand 284 at the CIPD annual conference and exhibition on 6-7 November in Manchester.

There’s a great line up of sessions including speakers from M&S, Santander, Facebook, innocent drinks, Alliance Boots and we’ll be there to tell you more about our latest UK and international projects.

If meeting us isn’t enough, we’ll also be giving away free pink gerberas!

Look forward to seeing you there.

Interaction Client Forum

We hosted a client forum, at the Victoria and Albert museum on Friday, to allow L&D professionals to come together and discuss topical issues currently facing their organisation.  Topics ranged from Leadership to Talent Management to Employee Engagement.

There was some really interesting debate, sharing of ideas and experience.  Thank you to all those who attended for making it an enjoyable and valuable forum.

If you are interested in the output from the forum please get in touch.

Keep an eye on the Events page for future forums you can get involved in.

 

IEMA Conference

It might appear a little strange that we would attend the The Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment Conference in London but our work around behaviour means that we become involved with a variety of organisations, occupations and professions.

IEMA auditors tend to be technical in background and focus.  Their credibility and confidence comes from knowing what to do and say.  However relying on this alone is limiting.  Effective auditors, much like effective consultants and business partners, understand they are influencing different outcomes and behaviours within the organisation they are working with.

Our work with auditors, consultants and business partners has brought about excellent results by blending technical and behavioural skills into an experience that enables participants to become more effective.

Back from the AGR Annual Conference

We had another good experience this year at the annual AGR Conference.  Thanks to all those who came to see us on our stand.  It was great meeting new people and catching up with people we know already.

Thanks to all those people who spent time filling in our survey on internships.  We will collate the results and send them out to you shortly.

The conference provided useful insights as to how recruiters and developers are reacting to the economic changes.  What was pleasing to hear was most organisations had maintained their graduate development programmes through some pretty challenging times.  It demonstrates the commitment from organisations to recruiting a population of people, who with the right development can provide value to the organisation at different levels.

The AGR survey results indicated that most organisations are using retention as a way of measuring a programmes value.  This is a useful measure as long as the organisation is retaining the right graduates.  Not all graduates flourish as expected and during these uncertain times graduates are more likely to remain at an organisation that might not be right for them.

Getting data that is meaningful and helpful does require commitment and some sophistication.  If recruiters are absolutely clear about why and who they are recruiting and developers are clear about the programmes immediate and future outcomes then good evaluation can be achieved.
