On 28 June 2007 ORC International hosted its annual, London-based conference. The event gathered together more than 100 HR and research professionals who explored a diverse range of topics covering employee engagement, action planning and managing staff through change.
Speakers from BAA, Boots, Hanover Housing Group, NSPCC, Office of Rail Regulation and Sainsbury’s shared first-hand experiences of staff consultation.
Major challenges facing HR professionals were also discussed at the conference, such as managing talent, demographics, work-life balance, change and cultural transformation and becoming a learning organisation. Some of the findings from ORC Perspectives – ORC International's benchmarking database, which represents the opinions of over 1.4 million employees – were shared at the event:
Just 51% of staff in the UK say they have enough time to do their job effectively, yet 67% believe they can strike the right balance between their work and home life
Delegates found the conference insightful, and a good opportunity to share ideas with colleagues.
"Thank you – it's been a very useful and informative day"
"I enjoyed the speaker sessions but also liked the free time to discuss topics with other attendees"
