2020 was a year that started with a certain set of expectations and ended with very different ones. But so far…
2021 is going exactly as we had hoped.
At the end of last year, we all sat down for our ChatTalent Party Hat Themed Christmas party (not a joke, just a fact) and discussed our plans for the coming year. Webinars up until that point had been a big factor in our content plan, we were hosting one almost every 4 weeks, but in all honestly, the thought of hosting another one made us sick.
We were very much ‘webinared-out’.
So we started the year by not hosting another webinar. And we called it as much – Not Another %$£@! Webinar.
Our rules were clear. There were to be no presentations and absolutely no super lengthy ‘about me’ introductions.
We wanted to have conversations.
We wanted our audience to leave the event with actionable information and ideally a network of people who could help.
So, we’re going to keep going.
Consider Season 2 of Not Another %$£@! Webinar officially announced!
The finer details for each will follow shortly, but you know we’ll put a good event on. So hopefully, the topics are enough of a guide for you to decide whether they’re of interest (or not).
Following Facebook’s announcement that they are planning to move to permanent remote work, BP’s rollout of “flexible working” (asking their staff to work from home two days a week) and Netflix CEO Reed Hastings calling WFH a pure negative.
When it comes to remote and flexible working, it seems that there is no right or wrong answer. But most likely still a lot of questions.
So let’s talk about it.
We’ve likely all flicked through a fair share of CVs. And it’s also likely that we’ve tossed lots of them aside due to too little relevant experience, no university degree, wrong font…
Whatever reason we used to justify it, in all likelihood we all skipped out on an actual diamond in the rough. One of those candidates who had everything they needed to be the perfect hire with just a little guidance and training.
So let’s talk about how to avoid that in the future. About how to look beyond the CV.
We think it was Benjamin Franklin who said “An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.” And in today’s digital age, data is the basis for new knowledge.
Investing in data and insight is the best way to support your people’s success. By using it to fully understand and improve every aspect of an employee’s work-life, and to drive the right decisions around your people strategy.
But knowing where to start is hard, or navigating your way through so much information can be confusing. So let’s talk about it.
That’s our news: Season two… announced!
If you like the sound of any of these events, please help us get the word out. And we hope to see a few of you there!
