THERE’S A NUT FOR EVERY BOLT – BETTER AND FASTER STAFFING THROUGH MATCHING
WAS HELD ON: July 13, 2022 3:00 pm CET
WAS HELD ON: July 13, 2022 3:00 pm CET
Staffing is a traditional HR topic, but today more relevant than ever. Digitalisation, flexible work models, employees seeking more participation and, last but not least, COVID19 present HR departments with a host of new challenges and call for new approaches. Such an approach is matching theory, an economic theory which was awarded with the 2012 Nobel Prize. Insights from matching theory are applied in various fields today, but are little known in HR. If you are looking for a kindergarten for your child, need an organ transplant, or are applying for a job at Google, the underlying assignment process could be based on matching theory, without you knowing it. Matching theory is used here in order to create better and fairer matchings in less time for the benefit of all participants. This raised a natural question: Why shouldn't we apply this proven methodology to labour markets in order to achieve better results? In our webinar, we will - look into some examples of successful applications of matching theory - explain the basic concepts - and discuss where and how this can be used in HR to make better staffing decisions. In addition we will present a lighthouse case in which we used matching theory at a DAX-company to jointly design an internal job market.

HOW TO USE DATA TO DRIVE DECISIONS IN STRATEGIC PROCUREMENT
WAS HELD ON: April 6, 2022 3:00 pm CET
WAS HELD ON: April 6, 2022 3:00 pm CET

Smart data and real insights instead of transactional facts

In the age of big data harvesting a huge amount of data is cheaper & easier than ever before in all areas of business, also in Procurement. This shifts the current focus very much on the quantity of the data and it is easy to lose sight of the quality and potential strategic insights altogether. An ocean of transactional data rarely provided strategic insights though. In this webinar we would like to discuss the four key challenges when collecting strategic data in Procurement and what you can do to get your company a step ahead of the competition.

CO2 – THE NEW CURRENCY IN PROCUREMENT NEGOTIATIONS

How to incentivise your suppliers to reduce their CO2 footprint

Free webinar with TWS Partners & carbmee

The fight against climate change is probably the biggest global challenge of the 21st century - inevitably it will also affect the way Procurement organisations think and act. CO2 has already become a currency on its own - there are almost no major businesses that don't yet have targets to reduce emissions throughout their supply chain. But what are the first steps in implementing these strategies? How do you even measure your suppliers' carbon footprint? What are best practices for achieving savings and improving quality, while also reducing the carbon footprint of your supply chain? Managing all of these factors while minimising trade-offs can be a complicated challenge. Join carbmee and TWS Partners' decarbonisation webinar to learn more about how to:
  • measure your suppliers' carbon footprint
  • manage the trade-off between costs and carbon reduction
  • incentivise your suppliers to reduce their carbon footprint

HOW TO THINK ABOUT THINKING: SURPRISES AND APPLICATIONS OF HUMAN DECISION MAKING
WAS HELD ON: June 24, 2021 3:00 pm CET
WAS HELD ON: June 24, 2021 3:00 pm CET
Behavioural scientists estimate that we make about 35,000 conscious decisions every day. As we do not have the time to evaluate each single decision at length, our brains have developed cognitive shortcuts so we can make those decisions more efficiently. While this saves us loads of time and effort, it is unfortunately very prone to error. Often we make sub-optimal choices without even realising it. In this webinar, we will explain: • How our brain processes information and how these shortcuts are sometimes influenced by our environment • How some of the most common cognitive biases prevent us from making the optimal decision • How awareness of the limitations of human decision making can help you improve business performance
