CPD with G: curration for the people occupation

CPD with G: curration for the people occupation

What with the Bank Holiday, may have been a short week last week, yet still dozens of email newsletters continue fill up our inboxes – it’s almost as if they are automated with no actual thought behind them! Hmm. Anyway, fear not, I’ve taken a look through and picked out the parts that I think are either essential to read for HR and L&D professionals and/or will provide relevant news to reference for those of you lucky enough to be studying with DPG.

Read these items, use them in your assignments and in the workplace if you can – put definitely put them in your CPD log! There you go, my gift to you: your CPD for the fortnight is done. See you in two weeks.

  1. A Plan for Jobs 2020’. Big news so I’d recommend reading this. HR Solutions gave a nice and condensed rundown of how this will support organisations to give 25 hours of work per week to 16-24-year olds(https://www.hrsolutions-uk.com/plan-for-jobs-2020-kickstart-scheme/?utm_source=Business+HR+Solutions+%28Consultancy%29+Limited&utm_campaign=8251725fc3-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_12119ad666-8251725fc3-287101220&ct=t(RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN)&goal=0_12119ad666-8251725fc3-287101220&mc_cid=8251725fc3&mc_eid=a45ecec15a). Of course, the gov.uk site is where all the detail is though. Particularly in section 2, there are a lot of quotable facts and figures such as “World Bank analysis suggests this will be the deepest global recession since the Second World War” It’s maybe a 20 minute read: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/a-plan-for-jobs-documents/a-plan-for-jobs-2020).
  2. Accessible via HR Grapevine are results of a 150-person survey about Covid-19 and the future of HR. It’s faffy to get to and you have to give your contact details but there are some useable figures such as: 43% have implemented a recruitment freeze and 81% have changed their hiring process As well as recruitment, well-being, staying connected, productivity and branding and more are included. There could be some figures in there that could underline a point you are trying to make in an assignment or in the board room. Set yourself a good 30 mins aside to access and look through it. https://www.hrgrapevine.com/publications/magazine/september-2020?utm_source=marketing&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=september_mag_2020
  3. If you are studying CHR with DPG you’ll need to be able to write about HR’s role in strategy implementation and ethical approach. There’s a new article from HR Grapevine that looks at HR’s role in navigating the COVID-19 crisis: https://www.hrgrapevine.com/content/article/avanade-2020-07-14-hrs-role-in-navigating-the-covid-19-crisis?utm_source=template-pardot-2006&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=hr-03-09-20&utm_content=insights&utm_term=Pandemic
  4. This one doesn’t fit in with my usual fact-based recommendations. However, for anyone studying DPG’s Developing a Business Case (LDM) or Using Information in HR (UIN) there are some top tips here on investigating and measuring the impact of initiatives. Treat yourself to 15 minutes to read, digest and apply to the situation of your choice: https://www.thelpi.org/building-the-case-for-impact-investigation/
  5. There have been some interesting developments in gender reassignment discrimination, but this only affects around 1 per cent of the population so whilst the impact won’t be huge, these are good examples of how discrimination is being taken seriously. The article is a 2-minute read and as quotable case law. Here’s a link: https://www.peoplemanagement.co.uk/experts/legal/latest-legal-developments-in-gender-reassignment-discrimination?utm_source=mc&utm_medium=email&utm_content=PM_Daily_10092020.Employment+law%3a+Latest+legal+developments+in+gender+reassignment+discrimination&utm_campaign=7295441&utm_term=2293442
  6. Sticking with the theme of equality, I’ve found some figures you can use to highlight that ethnicity pay gap reporting is a hot topic. It’s almost as if the gender pay gap debate has helped pave the way for such initiatives. It feels as if we are in enlightened times. It’s maybe a 3-minute read. Here’s the link: https://www.peoplemanagement.co.uk/news/articles/quarter-of-large-firms-now-calculating-ethnicity-pay-gap?utm_source=mc&utm_medium=email&utm_content=PM_Daily_10092020.Quarter+of+large+firms+now+calculating+ethnicity+pay+gap%2c+research+suggests&utm_campaign=7295441&utm_term=2293442
  7. In L&D, I’ve found some recent useful stats on the rise of elearning in organisations including figures showing 99% of organisations surveyed offer some form of elearning – up from 76% five years ago. 2 minute read: https://www.thehrobserver.com/association-for-talent-development-says-e-learning-adoption-on-the-rise/?utm_source=Adestra&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Read%20more&utm_campaign=Newsletter%20-%20September%202020%20-%20new&utm_term=02EDZTE5B&tracker_id=02EDZTE5B&esp=adestra
  8. Are you looking to prove the effectiveness of working from home? I spotted a survey that’ll give you gems like “More than three-quarters of respondents work as well or better at home”. 10 minute read: https://www.thehrobserver.com/the-future-of-remote-working/?utm_source=Adestra&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Read%20more&utm_campaign=Newsletter%20-%20September%202020%20-%20new&utm_term=02EDZTE5B&tracker_id=02EDZTE5B&esp=adestra
  9. Back to L&D, an easy to read report on learning in the flow of work has just been released. You have to subscribe to a newsletter to download it. The report includes advice on how to pitch the method to a CEO, how would benefit and how to practically get it working. 10 minute read: https://www.trainingzone.co.uk/resources/increase-learning-engagement-through-learning-in-the-flow-of-work-flo?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Storyshare_respurce_external_1009&utm_content=Storyshare_respurce_external_1009+CID_e5a1f86e6d66543c5819afd46c2fe501&utm_source=internal_cm&utm_term=Download%20full%20report
  10. This one isn’t fact-based either – yet. Would you do me a favour and fill in this quick survey? https://community.dpgplc.co.uk/blog/functional-skills-levels-in-your-organisation-improved-or-not-imp
