A global workforce, a virtual workplace, contingent workers and the expectations of millennials are forcing employers to take a more modern, agile approach to the development of the employee value proposition…but…do employers have what it takes to deliver?

That’s the question our guest presenter, Jenny Smyth, Talent & Rewards Lead with Willis Towers Watson will answer when she presents the results of  the 2016 Global Talent Management and Rewards Study which captured the perspectives of over 2,000 employers — who collectively employ nearly 21 million people worldwide — on attraction, retention, and engagement issues at the heart of the employment deal and total rewards strategy.

This seminar which force attendees to question their company’s employee value proposition and assess what they need to adjust or introduce at every touch point in their employee/employer relationship.

The takeaways from this seminar will include:

  • An understanding of the top drivers of employee attraction
  • Career Security vs Job Security
  • Flexibility within the Total Rewards offering
  • Why employees choose to leave an organisation
  • A company’s Career Story
  • The Drivers of sustainable engagement
  • Leadership development – need for improvement?
  • Organisation culture and workplace stress
