Re-imagining Recruitment

Re-imagining Recruitment

Monday, September 28, 2020

6:00 – 7:00 am EST

REGISTER

No-one could have expected what has happened over the last few months.  The impact of Covid-19 is beyond anything we could have ever imagined.

As we move towards the new normal, it probably gives one of the greatest opportunities for organisations of all sizes and across sectors the chance to ‘re-imagine recruitment’.  Plum Personnel and Thursfields Solicitors are delighted to present a series of webinars which will explore how people think and feel about work, who they want to work for and how they want to work in the future.

The theme of the launch webinar will be to look at how we can work towards creating a better workforce for the future, encouraging social mobility and offering opportunities to a broader array of talent.

The first in the series will be hosted by the Solihull Chamber of Commerce.

A panel of local and well-respected experts will discuss the business case for equality, diversity and inclusion and particularly the benefits of attracting talent, gaining market competitiveness, enhancing reputation and giving people a voice.

While hindsight may be 20/20, no one could have envisioned the way the year 2020 would unfold.  There is no playbook and we are learning as we go.  Is your work from home environment secure?  Do you and your company have the right privacy practices in place?  Our 2020 vision is clouded by the multitude of crises we face in our daily lives.  Individuals, businesses, the country and the world are all impacted by the pandemic.  The number of people engaged in remote, online activity across the globe has blurred the once clearer delineation of professional and personal lives.  Myriad security issues around data privacy and protection arise with the use of personal computers in a corporate environment.  Public and private institutions are struggling to mitigate risk, and security and privacy are top priorities.  What protocols, controls and processes are in place and evolving as a result of our new reality throughout the US and the world to protect and maintain the integrity of corporate data and business practices?

Larry J. Hershman, Partner, Black Cipher Security, LLC  and Chris Shull, CISO & DPO Consultant, Black Cipher Security, LLC will discuss the novel issues with the home office, and the struggles companies face as they identify the increased need for new protective measures to secure business strategies, protect data, and manage people and processes in this new and rapidly changing environment. Howard M. Silverstone, MBE, CPA, CFF, FCA, CFE, Director, Forensic Resolutions, Inc. and prior President and current Membership Chairman, British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia will moderate the presentation.
