    Winning strategies for attracting and retaining top talent
    Presented by Ceridian

    Globally, 61% of employees are a flight risk, with 38% open to the right opportunity and 23% actively looking. But keeping your best employees is solvable if you’re willing to change the way you think about human capital management. Good compensation, flexibility, and opportunities for growth are critical but they aren’t enough to retain people long-term.

    Join Wendy Muirhead, Managing Director and Regional Leader for EMEA at Ceridian, and a panel of HR leaders as they explore Ceridian’s latest 2022 Pulse of Talent survey and its key findings on employee experience. The survey data has been collected from more than 6,800 workers around the globe.

    The panel will be discussing and taking questions on:

    • Current employee sentiment on their workplaces and employers

    • Three key areas employers should focus on today for long-term employee retention

    • How to embed value everywhere in your employee experience and use technology to optimise it

    The expert panel will also be taking questions from the floor in this session.

    How digital mental health solutions can support the employee experience
    Presented by Unmind

    The pandemic forced organisations to look at the employee experience through a new lens, one that considers mental health and how it affects each employee’s experiences differently. Without visibility, physical cues, and human connection, employers need to dig deep to support their people at each critical stage of the employee experience. From the day we apply for a job, to performance reviews, sick leave and retirement, our physical, psychological and social wellbeing will impact how we experience these moments that matter.

    The session will include:

    • The role of digital mental health solutions in attracting and retaining employees

    • How to think of mental health as part of the employee journey

    • How to use mental health solutions as key touchpoints in every employee experience

    The Age of Colleague Experience - are you set up to treat your colleagues as well as your customers?
    Presented by Alight Solutions

    Anyone who has been in a senior HR position in the last couple of years knows that the long-held views about employee engagement and experience have gone out the window. With monumental changes affecting work, work/life balance and an increased expectation of what people want from their working lives, HR teams need to take a step back and consider the root causes to these challenges. Whether it is hybrid working, the war for talent, the pace of change or social media presence - all of these organisational issues are intrinsically linked to colleague experience.

    Marcus Beaver, Country Leader UKI from Alight Solutions, will be joined by a panel of HR leaders to discuss and compare the approaches organisations can adopt to deliver improved employee experience and increase productivity.

    The expert panel will also be taking questions from the floor in this session.
