The Joy of Work

Are lunch breaks for wimps, or do they actually make us more productive? Is it true that you can improve team performance simply by moving the location of the kettle or coffee machine? Why are meetings so often a waste of time, and how can they be fixed? And what are Monk Mode Mornings and Hack Weeks, and why do people swear by them?

Org Planning and Analysis in Disruptive Times

Disruption today is constant, and organizations must adapt faster, better and stronger to survive. Change, however, can be cumbersome and the benefits often unrealized. Against this backdrop, OD has evolved. OD needs to enhance workforce productivity and effectiveness to deliver strategy. OD needs to leverage data to proactively identify opportunities, and guide design decisions. In this session we introduce Org Planning and Analysis (OP&A): a new model for OD that’s making waves. As a natural partner to FP&A in Finance, this is capability in forecasting and planning that connects the organization to ever-changing business needs.

Nigel Guenole

What does good AI look like?

In this session, Nigel will discuss IBM's perspective for AI in the context of Human Resources; using examples from IBM's own digital transformation of HR, where AI is a centerpiece, he will highlight areas of rapid ROI from the use of AI in talent acquisition and learning with emphasis on technology that truly achieves business outcomes.

Nigel will also lead a discussion on the ethics of using AI in HR, and how AI strategies should be guided by the organisation's values, principles and purpose; referencing IBM's own journey on how it has used behavioral science principles and practices built into the design process to operationalise AI solutions in HR.

To close Nigel will lead the group in a discussion on how AI helps to minimise the effect of human biases in our HR decision making, and can ultimately lead to accurate, faster data driven outcomes, that augment HR teams' effectiveness and ultimately benefits the applicant and employee experience.

Creating Certainty in Uncertain Times

Uncertainty is our (business) friend as clients look for stability and support in the face of challenging market conditions. Our challenge is how do we deliver the certainty of stability and support when we ourselves are subject to the same disruptive elements; Digitisation & Technology, Funding, Regulation, Political/Economic/Societal/Employment

However, rather than focus on managing uncertainty, let’s flip 180 degrees and ask a different question, How do we negate the impact of uncertainty and focus on what we know, creating certainty for our colleagues, clients and contribution?

Owning Diversity...when being an inclusive employer isn’t enough

Sainsbury’s Group Head of Recruitment, Jon Warwick, oversees over 70,000 hires a year across multiple brands in one of the UK’s best-known Retailers.

‘Inclusion is something that is truly baked-in to everything we do at Sainsbury’s, and having worked in a number of other organisations it was clear how authentic and appreciated by all colleagues the approach was.  However it was soon obvious that doing the right thing was not always enough, and our recruitment processes and decisions were still having an adverse impact and blocking our progress. This talk looks at how we have started to unlock potential and make even more inclusive hiring decisions, including some of the trails, mistakes, learnings and changes we have made along the way’
