Digital transformation in HR: Six practical actions

Webinar with Sam Marshall of ClearBox, for Igloo Software

24th April — 8am PDT / 9am MDT / 10am CDT / 11am EST / 4pm BST / 5pm CEST — for 30 minutes

HR departments are working hard to take on a more strategic role in their organizations. A savvy approach to digital can help accelerate that, and we don’t just mean automating your standard transactional systems.

In this fast-paced webinar, we’ll run through six practical ideas for how an intranet can help address some of the top challenges HR departments face. Join guest presenter Sam Marshall to learn:

  • How to improve employee engagement by making leaders more accessible
  • How to cut your helpdesk costs by making routine information such as a Wellness Program readily available
  • Ways to keep ever-changing policies (such as cannabis, gender awareness and social media) up to date whilst demonstrating compliance
  • How an intranet can help you get the most out of the talent you hire by acting as an internal LinkedIn
  • Why digital literacy matters and how to help employees take control of their own productivity

Places are limited.

If you can’t attend on the day, register now and Igloo will send you a copy of the webinar recording.

How to succeed with a workplace chatbot

Webinar with Sam Marshall of ClearBox, and Gillian McCann, Head of Workgrid

8th May — 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST / 7pm CET — for one hour

The benefits of chatbots in the workplace and how to gear up for a successful bot launch.

Chatbots are getting quicker to deploy and train. When available within existing channels, it becomes easier for employees to request services and seek information, especially on mobile devices.

But poorly-deployed chatbots can frustrate more than they assist. It’s easy to do a contained pilot, but a scalable service takes planning. How do you ensure that people know the topics that the chatbot can cope with? How do you ensure that content is maintained, and the responses improve?

Join CMSWire, Sam Marshall of ClearBox Consulting, and Gillian McCann, Head of AI and Cloud Engineering at Workgrid, for a live, hour-long webinar on how chatbots have evolved to be a robust technology, how to avoid early-adopter pitfalls and how to use them for best effect.

This webinar will cover:

  • Where chatbots add most value for employees
  • How to plan and deploy your chatbot
  • How a chatbot fits within a wider digital workplace strategy
  • The implications for HR, IC and IT.
