Tools are useful, but we need to create a culture that fosters diversity and flexibility.

Itunes
March 13, 2020
Hosted by Antonio Santos, Debra Ruh and Neil Milliken.

David Bara has a degree in BA Business Technology and a Master’s in Education. He is a former special needs teacher and is currently a Senior Lecturer in Special Education. David has spoken at international conferences, published articles and written recommendations for the Secretary of State for Communities for the UK Government on issues surrounding childhood and adolescent health care issues. His work has been aimed at improving the life chances for the children with cancer and special needs, their siblings and families.
David has personal experience of the issues and the challenges facing individuals and their families who have visible and hidden disabilities, chronic illnesses or other access needs.
In 2012, his daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of 2 ½. Surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy saved her life but she has been left with life-changing disabilities and the late effects of the treatments will continue as she grows up. His son has been diagnosed with dyslexia and is also dealing with the emotional impact of what has happened.
In response to his professional and personal experiences, David, together with his wife, Emma, founded WeCanAccess Ltd and developed WeCanAccess.com. WeCanAccess is a new online platform which has two core aims: 1) To create a social shift in attitudes by demonstrating that accessibility and inclusivity are vital for a more economically and socially sustainable future, and 2) to improve the life chances, health and wellbeing of people with access needs and their families. The platform is already recognised as a United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 3 champion and was presented at the UN Sustainable Cities event in Espoo in June 2019, where David sat on the Health and Wellbeing Panel.

Why Companies Need to Value a Great Candidate Experience
Thinkers360
February 25, 2020
Wednesday 26th on #Worktrends Twitter Chat.
If you’re trying to find out if the experience of applying to your company was positive — and therefore if you’ve got a future advocate on your hands or not — it’s a bit of a cop-out to only ask the people who got hired. But that’s not what the Candidate Experience reports do. In the case of the most recent report, the Talent Board reached out to more than 195,000 candidates to find out how they felt about their candidate experience. And for most, the impression wasn’t colored by a rosy “you’re hired” moment. In fact, 90% of them were not hired. That’s not exactly a biased sample.

The bottom line is that a candidate experience is an incredible success factor for organizations. A great candidate experience can improve your brand reputation, create phenomenal goodwill — even when a person isn’t ultimately hired for the job. It creates a source of referrals, saves companies time and money, and in this era when pretty much everyone is a consumer of experiences even more than products or services, it is a key differentiator that may win you talent.

The Journey to a Great Employer Brand
Thinkers360
February 17, 2020

Companies spend incredible energy and people power on marketing, but CMOs and their teams are focused on customers, Susan said. And forging a great employer brand takes focusing on employees — but using some of the same strategies: research and more research. Learning everything about employee’s values, needs, behaviours, life in and outside of the workforce is all a part of it, and so is enlisting everyone, every stakeholder, to be part of the effort. And the most important part of the employer brand? “Consistency,” Susan said. “On the marketing side, we look at the attributes of a product and then we settle on the strongest ones that are most important to our customers to build our brand on. We should do the same thing on the employer brand side as well.”
