Workforce Planning for the New Normal

Many organisations are now looking beyond the tactical aspects of surviving the COVID-19 world and are seeking to visualise and strategise what the composition of their workforce is likely to be over the next few years. This is an exercise in workforce planning. Seismic changes that organisations are experiencing right now often require different competency sets. Join us for an interactive online workshop where we will address questions such as Strategic focus – profit? Growth? Customer satisfaction? or Survival?


Thursday 12th May 2:00pm – 4:00pm

Candidate Attraction & Evaluation for the Disability Sector

National Disability Services (NDS) is partnering with SACS to present this interactive online workshop. Our clients in the disability sector often tell us that it can be a challenge to find people. They also tell us that once they have found candidates it can be difficult to ensure that these candidates are going to be able to do the job properly and to behave in accordance with the values of their organisation. SACS & NDS offers you the opportunity to join us for a two-hour interactive workshop focused on this topic.

Tuesday 31st May 2:00pm – 4:00pm

Candidate Attraction & Evaluation

Our clients from across a range of industries are telling us about how challenging it is to attract high quality candidates for jobs right now.  There are two key reasons for this, firstly fear of job stability during the pandemic has meant that people are less likely to resign. Secondly, a reduction in skilled migration has seen a drop in the calibre of available candidates in the market. So there’s no better time to look at the latest research into what attracts candidates to jobs and how to evaluate them. SACS invites you to join us for a two-hour interactive online workshop focused on this topic.


What Type of Person is Suited to Remote Work?

Businesses are facing unparalleled challenges as a results of the Covid-19 pandemic. One particular obstacle is the mass relocation of staff from their primary office location to a remote working environment in their home. Even before the pandemic organisations have been transitioning to more remote work for flexibility and cost reasons.

While there are clear logistical challenges that this can raise there are also issues around the compatibility of an employee’s psychological makeup with working solely from home. To help organisations understand the likelihood that an employee will thrive in a work from home environment SACS has undertaken a review of the current research on this topic.


Leadership in Tough Times

For many employees across the world times are tough. People are worried about their jobs, worried about their health and the health of their loved once and in many cases are coping with the new challenges of working from home. Resilience is being challenged in a way that it has not been in living memory. Attend this workshop and you will be brought up to date with the latest research on stress, resilience and leader behaviours which optimise coping and productivity. You will come away with initiatives you will be able to use immediately at work.


Change Without Pain

Worldwide we are currently going through a period of very substantial change. Changes in health, changes in community attitudes, changes in the way that we work and changes in the business models of organisations, just to name a few. Organisations are asking their employees to do things very differently from how they’ve ever done before and to cope with new challenges they’ve never had to face up to before.

View this webinar to learn how to hook into your colleagues’ natural tendency to change and provide much practical advice about how to bring about change whilst retaining the natural energy and enthusiasm of your colleagues. You will also gain an understanding of the latest discoveries relating to change and many practical tips and suggestions about how to plan for and implement change in your own organisation.
