Using the latest research, Russell Beck, Impellam’s Head of Consulting, delivers regular thought-provoking seminars on the very latest issues affecting the working world. Topics include attrition and motivation, managing a multi-generational workforce, consultative selling, employee engagement and the future of work; 2020 vision.We’re currently running seminars on:
Appraising the Appraisal ProcessPerformance evaluation is almost as old as civilised man. The performance review is part of our need for ratification. It’s part of human nature. Yet for seemingly as long as they’ve existed, appraisals have been stigmatised as a purely corporate exercise that pays lip service to performance management. This seminar looks at why appraisals have become regarded as a trap rather than a tool, what constitutes an effective performance review system and finally, the way forward.
The Future of Work; 2020 VisionBusinesses and work as we know it will change significantly over the next 5 years, so what will happen and how can we future proof our businesses and our careers? By connecting the dots in a meaningful way, this seminar will consider these facts and more. And for every point made, we will show where the future has already started to take shape, after all, ‘the future is already here'.

Employee EngagementThe UK has an employee engagement problem. Only 20% of the working population are actively engaged, with the same percentage being actively disengaged. And the remainder? They can be summed up in a single word, ‘Whatever.’ Engagement is a term we all know but few can really define it, so what is it all about, and so what?

What Does Good Look Like?
Recruitment is the most important people process we have, yet very few of us are any good at it. Research shows that 5% of your workforce produces 26% of the output (the other 95% produce only 74% of your output) and that only 19% of hires are an ‘unequivocal success.’ For all its importance and for all the investment we have made why is it so hard to hire good people? Why are we no better at hiring good people today than we were in the 1940s? This seminar will answer these questions and more.
