HRGV2017 Annual HR & Talent Management Conference


The Magic of HR

The key to achieving is to get people believing.

The Brewery, 52 Chiswell St, London, EC1Y 4SD

If there’s one thing business leaders can be certain of, it’s uncertainty. The world is continuously changing and businesses are constantly having to adapt to new ways of working.

The rate of change may seem unmanageable, but it is the magic of HR that will enable businesses to achieve the impossible. Whether that’s in delivering performance through people, or ensuring that the workforce is agile and adaptable enough to navigate the changing environment.

In such a fast-moving world, HR needs to empower leaders, anticipate the future and inspire an entire workforce in order to allow for successful transformations.

On 16th March 2017, HR Grapevine will unveil a unique line-up of Board Executives and HR Directors to reflect upon the magic of the people function and how the key to achieving is to get people believing. Whether that’s fostering a belief across the entire workforce that the business can accomplish the impossible, or getting those at the top to believe in the importance of the people agenda and its power to transform.

Although this may all seem like the supernatural, HR’s abilities are founded in astute strategic planning and can be adopted by any practitioner – not just the blessed few.

And so 400 senior HR professionals will attend our annual event to seek inspiration, take part in lively debates and network during the bustling breaks. Then there is lunch, where the HR Grapevine sparkle really comes into its own, but you will need to come along and discover for yourself what magic we have in store for you this year…

Dynamic Succession: simple faster smarter better
HR Grapevine Webinar

Organised by HR Grapevine and Cornerstone OnDemand

Organisations have increasingly looked at reviewing their Performance Management strategies, and shifting towards a more regular or even ongoing approach. And while this approach is welcome, it is Succession Planning that can have the biggest impact – especially for high growth organisations and companies looking to retain talent.

In this webinar we examine why it is so crucial for all organisation to transform their succession process from something that happens once a year (or not at all!), to an ongoing, dynamic practice that embraces the entire workforce – not just top-tier management. 

But what does a continuous, dynamic approach to succession planning look like?  In this webinar, we explore the 4 key elements:

  • Simplicity: being able to accurately and continuously make talent data available to business decision makers
  • Faster: identifying and developing potential successors early enough to ensure they hit the ground running when a workforce gap occurs
  • Smarter: engaging the entire workforce through enabling internal mobility and transparency
  • Better: thealignment of talent with business strategy, to impact the growth and success of the organisation

Whether you are experiencing phenomenal growth, scaling for the unknown or retaining your top talent, Gary Evans, Director of Client Success at Cornerstone, and Jeremy Nabarro, Principal Solutions Consultant at Cornerstone, will share with you what dynamic succession could mean for your organisation.


3 Things you need to know if your staff drive
HR Grapevine Webinar

As an employer, you can be fined or jailed for how your employees drive – even if they use their own cars. It’s one of the biggest risks growing businesses face. It can be difficult to keep on top of what you should be doing and what you need to know to ensure that your people driving for your business are safe on the road.

Your employees also have responsibilities to meet to help you meet your duty of care obligations if they drive for work. By providing clear guidelines and supporting materials you can help your employees be compliant and reduce their risk on the road.

1)      The responsibilities you have when it comes to employees driving for work purposes - even if it is their own cars

2)      What drivers need to know and how you can inform them

3)      Staying ahead of legislation and compliance

The Future of HR
HR Grapevine Webinar

Organised by HR Grapevine and SumTotal

The rules and laws that govern talent management change weekly: case in point, the Court of Appeal's ruling that a seemingly self-employed plumber is entitled to workers' rights even though he was VAT registered and self-employed in the eyes of the taxman. 

The world of business is changing at an incredibly fast pace. Technology is advancing, demographics are broadening and the ways people are being managed needs to follow suit. This webinar will discuss the future of talent management in the modern workforce across four key areas of the employee lifecycle:

• Talent Acquisition 
• Onboarding 
• Performance Management 
• Career Mobility
