10am – SD Worx - Reinventing HR: Why unshakable HR has payroll at its core 

Business priorities may have changed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. but one thing is clear; resilient business continuity plans have payroll at their core. 

Payroll has been thrown into the spotlight over the last year, with many businesses relying on the payroll function to keep them going during the pandemic. So much so, that payroll workers were deemed ‘key workers’, helping to keep UK businesses going.  

Now more than ever, the notion of the siloed, back-office payroll team is outdated. Elevated to centre stage, payroll extends beyond salaries and taxes, providing every business area with rich insight. It is key to digital transformation and when integrated with HR it creates a single source of truth to guide strategic decision making. 

While the origins of payroll and HR technology platforms are distinct, it’s become increasingly necessary to integrate the data within these two systems – especially when employees and senior managers want to see the impact of any change of circumstances, they need to access that data in real time.

Payroll information touches so many elements of HR, whether attracting, on-boarding, developing, rewarding or retaining talent, that it’s become hard to separate the technology supporting both functions. Today, more and more businesses are choosing an end-to-end suite that takes care of the entire employee lifecycle.

Wednesday 9th June

10am - Robert Walters - "How to hire a diverse workforce"

There is reliable evidence that a diverse and inclusive workforce can increase revenue, provide competitive advantage, improve retention, and enhance employee satisfaction. This is well recognised but it remains the case that almost no protected characteristic – gender, sexuality, ethnicity, disability, or age - can be said to be properly represented in the workplace.

Helping organisations to build more diverse teams and professionals to have successful careers is part of our purpose at Robert Walters to power people and organisations to fulfil their unique potential. We are committed to supporting the D&I strategies of our clients and design our recruitment processes to ensure the talent pools we present are as diverse and inclusive as possible.

Join this webinar to hear from the team at Robert Walters as they share useful tips and insights into how you can ensure your organisations recruitment processes successfully encourage a more diverse candidate pool.

2pm - Mind Over Mountains - “Stopping to take notice”- Reminding yourself to ‘take notice’ can strengthen and broaden your awareness, help you prioritise what’s important and bring clarity about what’s not.

Being aware of what is taking place now and in the moment directly enhances your well-being and most importantly savouring ‘the moment’ can help to reaffirm your life priorities. Heightened awareness also enhances your self-understanding and allows you to make positive choices based on your own values and motivations.

In this interactive session , Chris Spray and Alex Staniforth, founders of Mind Over Mountains, will help us to stop and take notice - to take a helicopter view of the here and now.  We will also be exploring the role of gratitude in taking notice.  We promise you will leave this session energised and a little clearer.
