Human Capital Analytics

Human Capital Analytics (sometimes called Predictive Analytics) is fast becoming the means by which HR earns its seat at the decision-making table. Evidence-based HR starts with a clear and objective understanding of the relationship between data, information and knowledge followed by identifying, prioritizing and communicating the information which is most impactful in organizational decision making. This module explores how to gather and analyze pertinent HR metrics which have organization-wide implications including how to properly communicate those findings to drive better decision making.

Building Resilience in Times of Crisis

Have you ever wondered what causes some people who have limited resources to thrive while others become utterly defeated? Chances are, the distinguishing factor is resilience. But what, exactly, does resilience mean?

As we all adjust to a changing landscape and a new normal in our personal and professional lives, it is imperative that we each develop an increased capacity to stand our ground in the face of adversity. This masterclass will explore ways to build resilience both consciously and unconsciously, to help businesses and communities to bounce back and thrive in unprecedented times.

Full Circle Leadership : How to Create More Engaged Employees

The concept of leadership means many things to many people and continues to evolve with the demands of our changing world. Effective leadership is critical to the health of any team or organization and requires a full circle, end-to-end approach. The conscious practice of holistic, full circle leadership can make the difference between a good leader, and a great leader. In this session, we explore some winning strategies for creating more engaged employees. Which will ultimately drive higher productivity, lower attrition, increase profitability, and a more positive culture.

Masterclass E | Sep 27th | 09:00am - 01:00pm | UAE time

Why Leaders Make Bad Decisions and How They Can Get It Right

Understanding how leaders make decisions, and in particular, whether they are capable of displaying good judgment, is critical to understanding organizational effectiveness. To date, most efforts aimed at explaining or predicting judgment have focused on critical thinking, IQ, or other cognitive abilities. However, this paints an incomplete picture of an individual’s thinking and decision-making style. Indeed, cognitive ability may play a major role when it comes to learning new things and solving logical problems, but most of the problems leaders encounter in organizations are ill-defined, and their critical decisions are often made under conditions of uncertainty. In fact, many of the key decisions leaders make are better explained in terms of personality than intelligence.

Six Pillars of Performance

Do you know how to lead in a way that matters on the bottom line? We all know executives should exercise, but does it matter whether they run or play golf? If you want to make money, then yes it does.

The Six Pillars of Executive Performance is a science-backed story-driven set of practical pillars aimed to help you lead yourself and your economic community to better competitive advantage through stronger individual and collective mental, physical, and organizational fitness.

From mindfulness and teamwork to flow and motivation, this workshop is a C-suite cheat sheet on current best practices for executive excellence in leadership.

Masterclass G | Sep 27th | 02:00pm - 06:00pm | UAE time

Preventing Culture from Eating Your Strategy: How to Analyze the Culture of Your Organization

A culture of an organization is crucial to its success. Creating well-design strategies and plans may fail if the team doesn’t share the appropriate culture. Learn how to understand the culture of your organization by conducting a cultural analysis assessment, and make sure that “culture will not eat your strategy of breakfast.”

By the end of this session, the participants will be able to:

  • Understand what organizational culture is.
  • Put organizational culture into practice.
  • Plan for culture change.
  • Conduct effective organizational culture assessment.

The Value of Employee Engagement : The Direct Relationship between Employee Engagement and an Organization's Success

Because of the fear of having disengaged employees, the investment in employee engagement has been quite significant in the last few years. More organizations are turning to employee engagement programs to boost revenue, productivity, retention, customer satisfaction, safety, and efficiencies. But these pricey endeavors can lose critical funding when designed without the business impact in mind. This session will show how employee engagement is measured and valued and how even the ROI of engagement can, and is, being developed by organizations.

While the path adopted by most organizations is to arrive at the right rewards strategy so as to ensure monetary, and developmental benefits to employees who achieve specific business goals, the reverse too often holds true - by keeping employees motivated to do their best, every team member feels more inclined to do whatever it takes to achieve business goals.

In the GCC, the workforce has traditionally been cosmopolitan and mostly made of expats. This trend has been challenged over the past few years where GCC governments have taken a firm stand on nationalization efforts to ensure that the native population is not overlooked. Join this session to see how you can optimize your workplace to attract local talent and shift the mindset in your organization from seeing nationalization as a compliance mandate to seeing it as a socially responsible role to build the local talent and give back to the local communities as well as being a key competitive advantage and a driver for the economy.

Diverse, Digital, & Distributed workforces are the future. And in the absence of a culture of ownership, grasping success can be challenging. It is important to bring objectivity to subjective ideas in terms of what an ownership culture entails. Every workplace has Owners, Renters, and Vandals. Owners make big commitments, continually increase value, reach for responsibility, include others, and see the big picture. Shaping an environment, whether in-person or remote, where everyone wants to invest their best daily, transforms culture! This session will equip you with language, understanding, and tactical next steps towards achieving success.

The classic performance appraisal process has undergone a significant transformation in recent years. Shifting from a once-a-year review process to make pay decisions and disciplinary actions, the performance management system is now a business driver and an employee retention tool. Some organizations have abolished the performance appraisal but still have a performance management process. This session underscores the shift of the performance management system to a more productive, versatile, value contribution process that pleases employees, their managers, and top executives.

While technology is undoubtedly among the leading factors impacting business disruption, it often takes a lot more than technology alone to ensure business success. Organizations need to also consider the human side, to make digital transformation succeed.

This session will explore actionable insights for leaders to improve digital leadership and culture in their organizations.

Most people are inclined to put their energy into dealing with what's right in front of them-that is, what needs to be done today. But when it comes to the future workforce, prioritizing the here and now is not the optimal strategy. To keep pace with the anticipated demands and priority shifts of the next decade, organizations must start actively engaging in developing workforces today, and technology plays a major role in ensuring this transformation. In this session, know how leaders can leverage the best of WorkTech with key leadership skills in order to engage their current workforce and motivate them to up their game.

While referring to Technology and the Future of Work, it's only fair that organizations ponder over which path to adopt. Some experts predict a dystopia with high employee dissatisfaction caused by technology overdose, while others foresee a utopia where technology plays the role of a saviour in our lives. The determining factor would be how the world of work and its support system would respond to the ever-changing scenario. This session discusses perspectives associated with the ramifications for HR leaders – both from a business and employee perspective.

Mental health is overlooked by many people and stigmatized by even more. But attitudes are changing, and the pandemic has accelerated that shift. When employees open up, the overall feeling is that they felt worn down, burnt out and irritable at the end of the workday. As organizations scamper to implement innovative EAPs encompassing mandatory, incentivized mental health days, mental health scheduling support, and subscription services for mental wellness, this session discusses how selfcare needs to be made the new norm to deal with the issue before it snowballs into an all-new pandemic.

All organizations seek to optimize their people performance, but most leave money on the table by implementing off-the-shelf solutions that fail to address the specific and underlying issues hindering performance, resulting in diluted impact. Implementing a robust and agile diagnostic of performance issues, benchmarking each aspect of people operations and developing bespoke and scalable interventions that directly address the issues leads to significant savings in investment and marked improvement in results. This can be accomplished by pragmatic gathering and analyzing data and inputs and developing a blend of mini-solutions that zoom onto the problem areas.

Building the right performance measurement and management culture in the organization is a crucial step towards driving organizational transformation and adaptation in response to the dynamic environment. Therefore, the Human Resources Department should understand the organizational strategy and ensure its alignment with the HR department’s objectives, activities, initiatives and KPIs.

The HR department should develop the right Human Capital KPIs that provide objective evidence of progress on achieving the strategic objectives and these KPIs will help to inform better decision making.

HR Professionals should use the right tools to identify the right KPIs to measure the intended results and create strategic alignment.

Research reveals that human capital data is more difficult to come by and there is an acute lack of standardization around social metrics. ISO 30414 Global Standard on HUMAN CAPITAL DISCLOSURE provides the first and most widely accepted roadmaps for voluntary, strategic and systematic processes that improve outcomes and experiences. The primary focus of the human capital disclosure is to determine the long-term health of a business, thus mitigating the risk for the shareholders as well as all stakeholders including donors, regulators, employees, compliance agencies, customer, public and the community. This seminar covers key components of global standard on human capital analytics.
