A transformation is taking place in how people interact and how relationships form and develop and this is changing the way we socialise, the way we work and the way we engage with our customers.

This shift in technology and human behaviour presents an opportunity for organisations to improve everything from reinventing customer relationships to how work gets done. A Social Business embraces networks of people to create business value and activates networks of people that apply relevant content and expertise to improve and accelerate core and ad hoc processes, delivering unprecedented return for the time invested.

In an era when human resources departments are constantly being asked to do more with less, it’s clear that something needs to be done. As more and more resumes pile up for each position, HR teams need help to make a quality hire quickly. Fortunately, IBM Smarter Workforce technology can help, by providing companies the ability to test candidate skills at the beginning of the hiring process. Using simple and convenient skills assessments, it’s easy for HR departments to separate the serious candidates from the rest of the applicants. Once this is done, considering the candidates and making a quality hire becomes much more manageable.

First it was measuring employee satisfaction, then employee engagement—but what is next? Research has certainly proven that engaged employees are core to driving business outcomes, but we think there is something more. What if you could measure what matters to your business by listening first? Think about the power of understanding the needs and challenges of your customers, the market and your employees as a foundation before implementing an employee survey. Developing a survey that truly listens to the business allows for better outcomes that are tied to improving the bottom line. And it doesn’t have to stop there—it’s about developing a continuous program to help you build and maintain what is important to your business today and prepare for the change that is coming tomorrow. It’s not just about employee engagement, it’s about helping you build, maintain and improve a Smarter Workforce.

The rise of social media, coupled with the desire to build more engaged and productive workforces, has brought “active employee listening” to the forefront of management attention. No longer is it enough to encourage employees to speak up about topics that matter to them. Organizations today need to more actively solicit, analyze and engage in ongoing conversations with past, present and even future employees. Having access to the collective “employee voice” can help leaders achieve diverse goals, including identifying innovations, preventing discord and improving productivity, as well as building a better connection to the organization and its mission. So, how can organizations establish and manage mutually beneficial listening programs? To better understand what companies are doing in the area of employee listening and the extent to which employees are willing to participate, we analyzed data from the 2015 IBM Smarter Workforce Institute WorkTrends Survey – a broad-based survey of ov

A recent Human Capital Institute report found that 69% of respondents are having difficulty filling critical positions and only 20% agree that they have a strong talent pipeline for critical roles. Competition is fierce and the power has clearly shifted from employers to the candidate. Today’s job candidates expect to be treated like consumers, and the most successful marketing teams know that consumers are increasingly suspicious of brands. These marketing teams implement strategies to foster trust and loyalty among their target audience. Just like marketers, recruiters must have the ability to not only attract but engage candidates as well, and they are tasked with fostering that same trust and loyalty among the candidates they hire as well as the ones they don’t. It’s not enough to just leverage the latest tools and implement trend-setting processes in the recruiting department. Recruiters must also live the employer brand every day. Living the brand encompasses demonstrating the EV

Analyst Zach Lahey from Aberdeen group will share research insights in this webinar and will explore how to evaluate your internal and external talent acquisition processes to determine what’s working and what’s not. In addition, we will delve into the technologies that are available to make talent acquisition more effective than ever. After attending this webinar, you will be able to answer these three questions about your current process: What is your recruiter’s experience like? What are their trials, tribulations, and daily interactions? What is your candidate’s experience like? Where do they struggle, how much effort does it take for them to find information and apply for jobs? Finally, if either one (or both) doesn’t meet your expectations, what are you going to do about it and when?

Five years ago in a Harvard Business Review article on how companies leveraged HR analytics for competitive advantage, my co-authors and I found only a small handful of companies to interview. Today, life is very different. Interest in analytics and storytelling through data in HR is booming. But, HR as a whole is still learning how to set up an effective analytics function. That is why I welcome this report. The first 100 days of any effort is critical to success. Analytics is no different. Lead authors of this report and the people they have interviewed have sat in analytics roles in HR. They’ve learned a lot about what works and what doesn’t. Here’s an opportunity to learn from those who have already undertaken this particular journey. They know that to succeed in analytics one needs to: • Focus on business priorities • Leverage your analytics through storytelling • Use analytics to help inform decision making, not as a substitute • Understand that perfect data isn’t required for a

Workforce analytics is a very significant development in human resources. It promises the potential for deeper understanding of the ways workers contribute to organizational performance. However, workforce analytics is not just about analyzing data to reveal exciting insights; it also requires the active involvement of a firm’s workers if the potential of analytics is to be fully realized. Without active employee participation, workforce analytics efforts face at best, restricted data sources and data sets that are incomplete and at worst, the risk of damaging employee relations and, ultimately, productivity. This white paper summarizes recommendations that will encourage enthusiasm for workforce analytics and active employee participation, using the FORT (Feedback, Opt-in, Reciprocal, Transparent) framework. The FORT criteria could prove particularly useful in European countries. This is because the 1995 European Union Data Protection Directive, along with certain local legislative pr
