What are your top HR priorities right now?

From DEI to health and wellbeing, to sustainability and productivity, over 1,000 HR leaders told us exactly where they’re prioritising their efforts today.

We also found out from the c-suite the top metrics they want HR to use against these priorities.

Join [name] and [name] for a live, virtual session where we will be revealing findings from our research on HR’s top priorities today, and the key metrics you need to track to drive success in each area.

You will discover:

  • The 10 priorities of HR and the c-suite

  • The metrics to track for each priority

  • The view from HR and the c-suite on where they are today with tracking these metrics – and next steps

By the end of the session, attendees will come away with an understanding of HR leader’s top priorities, how to get ahead with theirs using key metrics for clear actionable insights that drive success.

Session 2

Much has changed in the last few years. Here are just a few trends:

Employees have become more vocal about their expectations for work life balance; smart and personalised tech is expected as standard by consumers; flexibility is set to become a day 1 right; parents have ongoing worries about educational catch up; childcare has been recognised as part of the infrastructure under the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill while it’s harder for parents to source the care they need. And of course, we can’t unsee all the aspects of family life we saw on camera in the pandemic: employees now bring more of themselves to work.

How can employers leverage the best of technology and the best of people to create a world-class employee experience when it comes to supporting family life?

We’ll hear how different employers are making this work in different ways, whether through onsite nurseries with smart technology keeping parents in touch with their child’s day or globally scaled toolkits for managing parental leave, with real people ready to coach and chat, or networks that combine the best of online and in-person connections.

During this interactive, virtual workshop, you will hear:

  • Timely insights into emerging needs and trends from the 2023 Modern Families Index research

  • Examples of leading employers’ programmes to support family life using both online and in-person support

  • How savvy HR professionals demonstrate Return on Investment from supporting family life in digital and people-led ways

Session 3

When nearly every HR technology vendor can promise transformational outcomes via their use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), how can leaders distinguish between clever marketing and true business impact?

The difference between empty promises and proven outcomes can be summarised as a vendor’s commitment to “Glass Box” Artificial Intelligence – the ability to clearly show how an algorithm produces a desired, intended result reliably and fairly, through constant validation and routine audits for adverse impact.

Join us on March 14th as Simon Davies, Solutions Director for Modern Hire hosts a virtual panel to discuss:

  • The current state of bias in hiring

  • How to ensure bias isn’t built into a selection algorithm

  • How transparency and Ethical AI promote fairer, more efficient hiring

Learn how to confidently lead your talent teams with an AI-powered hiring solution that’s ethical, effective, efficient, and engaging.

Session 2

Studies show that the number of women in senior roles might not be at par with that of men until 2036. Having a non-diverse top table not only contributes to the growing workplace issue of the gender pay gap, but also has a direct impact on you employee's experience, their productivity and ultimately achieving your business goals.

Common healthcare journeys, from period problems to menopause and onwards, contribute to a lack of diversity in at a leadership level. To have a serious conversation about achieving your DE&I goals, these factors need to be addressed.

In this 45 minute virtual session, hosted by Peppy, the panel will discuss how health – financial, physical and mental – has a direct impact on the progression of your employees and demographic of your senior leadership team.

Key takeaways include:

  • Taking action to close the gender pay and pension gap

  • Creating an elevated employee experience (EX) to help your people thrive

  • Strategies shared by leading HR managers so you can achieve gender parity
