Talent Management

Talent Management & the Power of Conversations with Hesketh Emden – #002

Talent ManagementIn this episode “Talent Management & the Power of Conversations” of the HR L&D Podcast, I sit down with Hesketh Emden

Hesketh is a multi-award-winning talent management professional to discuss his experience in developing employee cultures, his passion for promoting and training the power of conversations and of course, to understand more about his learning and development design and strategy implementation expertise.

Hesketh has successfully headed and set up a broad range of public and private sector Learning and Development functions, from Commercial Union during one of Europe’s largest mergers, to the Metropolitan Police.   In 2011 he was recruited by NHS England to lead on talent management, identifying future leaders across London’s 70 NHS organisations.

As part of government health service reforms, in 2013 Hesketh was brought in to help create the brand-new NHS Property Services, a Limited Company owned by the Secretary of State. In this episode of the HR L&D Podcast, we discover how, despite 3200 staff being TUPE’d overnight, he managed to successfully implement a Talent Management structure that supported building a new organisation with a single culture where there had previously been 161 ways of doing things.   Inspirational stuff!

Aside from Hesketh’s passion to promote and train ‘the power of conversations’, we also learn more about his experience at award ceremonies.  Hesketh was a finalist in the CIPD People Management Award in 2012 – ‘Talent Attraction & Management’; was winner of the Charity Learning Awards in 2014 – for ‘Using e-learning to facilitate change’; Finalist of the PPMA Excellence in People Management Awards in 2015 for ‘Talent Management’ and winner again in the HR Excellence Awards 2017 – for ‘Best CSR Strategy’.  Hesketh is very modest when it comes to his own achievements, but I know that our listeners will be keen to find out more about the man behind the accolades.

In this “Talent Management & the Power of Conversations” HR L&D Podcast episode, we discover:

 

  1. Hesketh’s work concerning “the power of conversations” and how this work has evolved
  2. The biggest challenges to making this type of training ‘mainstream’
  3. The tools and processes Hesketh has used to develop successful large-scale talent management programmes
  4. His experience in aligning 161 organisations into one single vision and culture following a 3200 employee TUPE
  5. How Hesketh’s work helped contribute to £5m a year in productivity savings for the NHS!
  6. Practical steps for you to immediately implement so you too can successfully develop positive communications
  7. We learn about his passion for supporting a Substance Misuse Charity and his work concerning the “Lazarus drug”
  8. Hesketh’s view on the impact that technology is having on communications within organisations?
  9. Why every organization should consider entering an industry award.
  10. The main challenges currently affecting Talent Management right now
  11. The key things L&D & HR professionals should be doing now to prioritise and develop talent in their organisations
  12. The reason why all L&D, HR and Talent professionals should embrace communications training?

The fact of the matter is, payroll is challenging.  Nearly every call a payroll professional receives is a complaint and the stress that payroll professionals can be put under can be overwhelming.  In addition, payroll professionals are rarely recognised at board level for the invaluable work they undertake in often very pressurised conditions.  This combination of factors can become a melting pot of emotions that can blur the path that will allow you to reach your payroll performance goals.  In this episode, Ryan Mathie talks to The Payroll Podcast about the seven key qualities required to deliver great leadership; the process you can apply that will unearth the true source of your motivations; and exactly how you can create more space in your life to provide you with the freedom you need to achieve all of your payroll career goals and all of your personal ambitions.

“Happiness is an outcome.  Success is an outcome.  An outcome is also known as a result.  We are results orientated human beings.  But the trick is to be clear about the results that you want…”

Your Payroll Performance journey starts here…

In this episode of The Payroll Podcast, we discover more about how you can achieve your payroll performance goals including:

  • How to apply a process that gets to the source of your motivations
  • How to create space, clarity and a profound new understanding of yourself and your goals.

LMS with Shaun Wilde

Solving Payroll & HR Workforce Challenges with LMS – with Shaun Wilde, #07

LMS ThumbnailIn today’s fast-paced work environment, it has become essential for businesses to keep teams up to speed with the latest trends and methods but, in payroll, with everything else to manage, how can you possibly find the time to train your team effectively?  This is where LMS can help.

In this episode of The Payroll Podcast, Nick Day speaks with Shaun Wilde, CEO of Think Learning, a leading Learning Management Systems (LMS) platform provider.

If you are a payroll manager who is too overworked to be able to commit additional time and resources to train and upskill your existing teams, then LMS could be the solution.
Shaun has recently been responsible for leading the scale-up of ‘Think Associates’ to its new business name of ‘Think Learning’ with a vision to empower organisations to create safer and better places to work through the implementation of Totara Learn and e-learning services.

Shaun boasts decades of experience helping clients to develop consistent learning approaches that have helped businesses to improve training analysis, engagement, career development, reporting and compliance while reducing organisational risk.

With the recent introduction of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) and with payroll and HR compliance and processes changing at an ever-increasing pace, this may be the perfect time to understand how and why LMS solutions are now more popular than ever! Shaun helps listeners to understand how LMS platforms can both accelerate change and support organisations to engage their workforce in learning and development.

Shaun explains how LMS solutions can improve reporting, security, analytics, compliance, HR processes, onboarding, inductions, training, governance, performance appraisals, leadership programs and even health and safety.

Like any implementation project, Shaun shares his vast experience in project management methodologies, data cleansing, engagement and best practice processes to ensure successful outcomes are achieved. We also discover more about Shaun’s love of OCR (Obstacle Course Racing), his experience as a choir boy and as a junior army team kayak champion and why he thinks, on the whole, humans are completely bonkers!

If you want to find out more about how technology such as learning management systems can affect your world, then this is the payroll podcast episode for you.

Wellness and Working Well by becoming “Super-Human” – with Hari Kalymnios. #04

Working Well Hari Kalymnios ThumbnailHari Kalymnios is a wellness expert and author of three thought-jarring books – “The Thought Gym”, “The Super Journal” and more recently, “Working Well“.

With Health Awareness month upon us, I felt that this would be a great time to release this podcast as I get to witness first-hand just how stressed payroll and HR professionals are right now and I appreciate the pressures you are facing. In fact, the reality is that across all professions of the industry many employees are working under increased levels of stress.

We are in the grip of a stress epidemic.

However, there is hope! In this episode of the Payroll Podcast, Hari offers efficient and practical steps for changing habitual patterns that may be affecting our state of wellbeing. You will hear about several strategies you can implement right not to improve your wellness.

As our lives get busier and busier, boundaries between work and leisure blur and we spend less time thinking about what we’re putting our bodies through. If you work in payroll or HR, you are probably reading this and thinking “that’s me”!

The reality is that this fast-living is resulting in a pandemic of ‘ill-being’: from general weariness and ‘feeling under the weather’ to prolonged bouts of sickness, lethargy and sharp increases in stress, depression and mental health issues. Cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes and chronic lung diseases are now the four main causes of non-communicable disease death, making up around 70% of all deaths (around 17 million) across the world each year. By the year 2030, the figure will top 24 million.

The way we’re working isn’t working.

Hari teaches listeners on the Payroll Podcast how they can “unlock your inner superhuman” and be “on point” – mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually so you can be the best payroller, HR leader, entrepreneur, employee, colleague, parent, friend or human that you can be. To do this Hari shows you how first, you can need become the master of yourself.

Changing your thinking is the first step towards any change – especially if you want to achieve high performance.

Hari has trained corporates and entrepreneurs across the world to help them achieve improved focus, productivity, resilience, relationships, happiness, health, vitality and energy.
Here is what Phil James (https://twitter.com/philjms), CEO of the Institute of Leadership & Management had to say about Hari’s most recent book, “Working Well“:

“It’s time we took ourselves, that is our mind and bodies more seriously. Working Well asks us to do just that. Read this book, crease its pages, wear it out, share it and most of all act. Do something different and start working well today.”

Hari puts it like this – “train the mind…and the rest will follow”.
