CIPD Annual Conference and Exhibition 2015
The CIPD Annual Conference and Exhibition is a high point in any HR Professional’s calendar. The event, which is held at Manchester Central is a great place to receive the most current industry information, and an opportunity to think more strategically about the future.
With such a varied range of seminar talks on offer, the conference gives individuals the opportunity to really tailor their learning experience to the subjects which are close to their hearts.
Some of the most reputable names from the world of HR attend. In addition, there’s the chance to come along and meet with the leading HR and Payroll technology suppliers as part of the exhibition.
During the event, Cascade’s CEO Oliver Shaw delivered an advice-led seminar on ‘HR Hacks – making a truly strategic contribution to your organisation’.
“This seminar is about providing HR and payroll specialists with new questions to ask when they get back to the office and different ways to uncover and confidently present information that will make Operations Directors, Managing Directors and Chief Executive Officers stop and listen.”
A recent survey, commissioned by Cascade HR, revealed that 76% of HR and payroll professionals feel their strategic business input remains poorly acknowledged. In the wake of these findings, Cascade’s CEO Oliver Shaw has authored a series of HR hacks, designed to help Human Resources capture the attention of senior management and gain the recognition they deserve in the boardroom.
Key to this progress is a greater respect for big data, a phrase that a number of businessmen and women, across different sectors, have long feared. However, data analysis does not require a maths, science or economics degree. In fact, by knowing which metrics to investigate, and how, the exercise is far from mindboggling.
Devised by Oliver Shaw, this free, formula-driven workforce planner will help uncover the answers to the questions previously posed. The only thing a HR professional needs to do is populate the spreadsheet with the numbers relevant to the organisation concerned.
