FREE WORKSHOP How financial wellbeing can help drive engagement and performance in your organisation
Studies have shown that financial wellbeing topped the list of factors employees wishes their employers cared about. According to AMP’s 2016 Financial Wellbeing report, one in four Australians are experiencing financial stress, affecting performance and engagement at work, whilst costing employers $47.2 billion each year.
Despite these statistics, only 15.2% of businesses surveyed in 2016 by Coredata had implemented a financial wellness program. But out of these businesses, three in five saw an increase in the overall financial wellness of their employees over the past six months, equating to six times the rate of improvement of businesses without a financial wellness program.
Come to this insightful presentation, and find out how you can implement a successful financial wellbeing program that will positively affect both your employees and your company.

FREE WORKSHOP Selection - the choice is yours
Research by Boston Consulting Group identified recruitment and selection as the number one contribution HR makes to organisational effectiveness - ahead of leadership development.
In the last few years we’ve seen budgets for L&D and leadership programs explode worldwide. But has this quest to retain and develop our talent meant that we’ve lost sight of the value of selecting the right talent to begin with?
In this how-to session we’ll put the purpose back into recruitment and selection, looking at the latest in the science of selection and the practical implications. What kind of experience do candidates really expect? Are they being over or under-assessed? Are we getting diversity right? Are we getting a competitive advantage? What is the best way for us to engage with hiring managers?
Make the choice to join us for this thought-provoking session!
