Thursday 14th June 2018 didn’t just mark the close of another successful CIPD HR Software Show – it also signalled the end of an era. We enjoyed the final HRSS as we know it, ahead of the expo changing to become the Festival of Work event at Olympia London next year. But before we look too far into the future at what’s to come, in this blog we reflect on Cascade’s five biggest HRSS highlights…
CB Resourcing had a great day at the Knowledge Management Forum 2018 last Thursday.
The event was well attended with a number of notable sessions including “How will technology impact your role”, which focused on the increasing use of technology, automation, and data and what it means for knowledge professionals.
I also attended an interactive session on collaboration through the unusual medium of a board game! It tested our decision making, resilience, leadership and ability to innovate and build trust.
We’ve heard the phrase ‘big data’ used, again and again, sometimes accurately but also often to describe all manifestations of analytics and relational databases over the past few years.
Recently at CB Resourcing, we’ve seen an influx of clients asking about the talent market for candidates with data manipulation skills such as Python, R and SQL. More specifically candidates with strong business research and analysis skills who can use technology to make sense of large unstructured data sets within the context of a business research question.
The World Cup 2018 kicked off on the 14th June, and with over 50 matches due to be played over the next month, many are taking place either during standard working hours.
A survey conducted by Love Energy Savings at the start of Euro 2016 suggested that one in five people would be willing to take a sick day to watch a sporting event, and with all eyes on England during the World Cup, you should have a robust plan in place in order to minimize any disruption to your business.
The main areas to pay specific attention to include:
Annual Leave Requests
Software giant Cascade HR has introduced a new advanced expenses module into its award-winning HR and payroll technology.
Expenses+ was revealed for the first time today, to delegates of the HR Software Show 2018 at Olympia, London.
Powered by Cascade in collaboration with expenses management specialist Selenity, Expenses+ is the result of a partnership that has been over six months in the making.
Following its 2018 salary survey, Clayton Legal reports that law firms are facing serious challenges thanks to a lack of experienced solicitors. The survey, conducted in February and March of this year, is the most comprehensive of its kind in the UK and reveals a snapshot of the legal profession: challenges, remuneration, use of support staff, and how firms plan to hold onto talent.
Final preparations are now underway for the CIPD’s HR Software Show 2018, and Leeds-based Cascade HR is set to have its largest presence yet.
The long-standing exhibitor is a familiar fixture at this renowned technology expo, carrying out more tailored demos than any other vendor and hosting advice-led seminars to aid delegates’ learning.
And this year is no different.
Cascade’s theme for the 2018 event is to empower HR professionals, and the first seminar on day one of HRSS evidences that mission completely.
