Radio Show #400: Josh Bersin on the Importance of the ‘Employee Voice’

Engage For Success - Employee Engagement

Special Guest: Josh Bersin, internationally recognised analyst, educator, and thought leader in the global talent market, Dean of the Josh Bersin AcademyAmazon has said it wants to be “Earth’s best employer and safest place to work”. This ambition is a long-overdue acknowledgment of the importance of the employee voice.For Josh, the voice of the employee is the most important topic in business. Employees are the most “vested stakeholders” you have; when they have problems or good ideas, you really have to listen. In practice, this means regular structured management-team communications and all-hands meetings, complemented by regular listening, surveys, and feedback.And for firms looking to rebuild as we exit COVID, if you start looking like an unattractive employer, you're going to suffer serious impacts—on not just morale, but business reputation and recruitment.Josh is an internationally recognised analyst, educator, and thought leader in the global talent market and is a frequently quoted commentator on the world of work, HR and leadership practices. He is also dean of the Josh Bersin Academy, the world's first global development academy for HR and talent professionals at all levels and across all industries.Join us as we discuss why employee experience has to be a priority for all organisations right now.Host:  Jo Moffatt

EP 009: Josh Bersin Academy: How An Alumni Program Enables Organizations To Rapidly Tap Into Qualified & Pre-Screened Talent

EnterpriseAlumni: Corporate Alumni Leaders

James Sinclair of EnterpriseAlumni invites you to join this one hour webinar with panelist Kathi Enderes on the rapid adoption and importance of organizations maintaining a relationship with their former employees via a Corporate Alumni Program.Kathi is the Vice President of Research at the Josh Bersin Academy, leading and developing research-based insights for all areas of HR, Learning, Talent and HR Technology. Kathi has more than 20 years global experience from management consulting with IBM, PwC, and EY, and as a talent leader at McKesson and Kaiser Permanente.An organizations ability to rapidly hire people is the practice that has the biggest financial impact (organizations able to rapidly hire are 4.4x more likely to meet or exceed financial targets and 6.5x more likely to adapt to change effectively, according to the recent pandemic response study of over 1,400 organizations). As businesses need to staff up rapidly, the power of alumni programs is unmatched as it opens a talent pool of qualified and pre-screened candidates that are readily accessible. Returning employees are the No.1 source of hire, they stay longer, they are a known “good fit”, become productive quicker (time to value), and can fill positions (time to fill) in half the time. As organizations on average only hire 2% of the resumes received via a public job posting, the time, effort and cost of interviewing and processing strangers to your organization is now rapidly being replaced by hiring former employees (boomerangs).As your Alumni continue their career, learn new skills and expand their network, maintaining a relationship enables organizations to tap into this vast talent pool for accelerated recruiting, access a candidate referral pool, drive D&I initiatives and shows that your company intends to have a relationship for life. The discussion will focus on how Alumni can positively impact and accelerate an organizations recruitment strategy.
