CIPHR prepares for the future at the Museum of London
It was a pleasure to host the CIPHR Customer Event this year at the Museum of London on London Wall. A great turnout of customers helped to make the day a real success.
The presentations kicked off just before 10am with the dulcet tones of Pharell Williams’ Happy song as Lorna Kirby ran through some mobile statistics and flexible working facts. She then demonstrated the latest CIPHR Mobile product, showing how functional it is and how easy it is to use. There was a great deal of interest among the audience both during and after the presentation.
This was followed by Rob Booth delving into the world of data and analytics. He invited the audience to consider how it has dealt with important data stocks to date and how it might modify its approach into the future. A glance into ways in which CIPHR can assist with their approach was helpful.
Paul Joys then took us through a range of interesting succession planning disasters and successes – looking at some very high profile examples. They helped to demonstrate “the good, the bad and the downright ugly” of succession plans. He then walked us through some of the CIPHR Org Charting functionality that can be used to prepare for change in the workforce.
A disaster movie introduced Lindsey Tudor to the lectern to look at the various offerings available for Disaster Recovery. CIPHR has introduced a series of Enhanced DR options depending on customers’ requirements. Examples of recent incidents in London helped to focus the audience on the subject.
The final Account Manager presentation focused on recruitment. Laura Guest facilitated a number of table-based discussions around recruitment topics, encouraged a good amount of audience participation through quiz questions and developed a positive and buzzy atmosphere to take into the break.
Fortified with caffeine the audience was treated to a guest presentation by Donna Patterson of Nescot who (after the preview of her video case study) shared some of her experiences with CIPHR Onboarding and CIPHR iRecruit before fielding a Q&A session.
Finally, Anthony Donovan of Donovan Associates took the audience on a journey into the world of the Inner Chimp, looking at the ways in which we respond to situations and the reasons why. Once again, audience participation was key and the chatter around the room was infectious.
Lunch was followed by a tour of the Museum of London by three experienced guides. The feedback was incredibly positive and many delegates have expressed an interest in revisiting the Museum.
Overall, a very successful day and thank you to all who took the time to join us.
