Christmastime is here – happiness and cheer at the 10Eighty Xmas Party

10Eighty-Christmas-2017

They say as you get older, the years seem to pass by more quickly. So call us ‘old’ because by the time the 10Eighty Christmas Party on Monday 27 November at the Royal Exchange came around we couldn’t believe it was 12 months since the last one!

10Eighty-Christmas-2017

We were joined by 90 people for the festivities and some impressive festive refreshments which included homemade lemonade, beers and a plentiful supply of white i.e. Blanc de Blanc-Sec, Jean-Paul Gascogne (no relation to Newcastle’s famous son Gazza) and red i.e. Rhone, France, 2015 and Cuvée Jean Paul Rouge, Pays De Vaucluse, Rhône France 2015.

10Eighty-Christmas-2017

The canapes did flow and included some yummy bite-sized morsels: cured beef carpaccio on toasted crostini with rocket pesto and truffle oil, duck breast, hoisin sauce, spring onion in a pancake wrap, a soft-boiled quail egg sesame & ginger relish on rye toast, grilled lamb skewers with green harissa dipping, chicken satay with peanut butter and coconut dipping and roasted fennel sausages, honey mustard glaze.

10Eighty-Christmas-2017

Meat dodgers were well served with parmesan creme, sable tartlet poached pear, balsamic and spicy Spanish omelette with pequillo peppers on a brioche bun.

10Eighty-Christmas-2017

Everyone took part in a raffle to raise money for Crisis at Christmas who support people out of homelessness for good. They do this through education, training and support with housing, employment and health and they offer one-to-one support, advice and courses for homeless people in 12 areas across England, Scotland and Wales.

10Eighty-Crisis-at-Christmas

We raised £780 on the night, which 10Eighty will match, so £1560 will go towards supporting homeless people this Christmas.

1st prize in the raffle was a £100 Christmas hamper and 2nd prize a £50 John Lewis voucher – congratulations to winners Urvashi Desai, Strategic HR Business Partner at The Crown Estate and Paul Chappell.

Mid-way through proceeding CEO Michael gave one of his 90-second ‘thank you’ speeches which obviously included Christmas and New Year wishes too.

Our Kiwi partner Fuel50 raises $2.5m

Fuel50-Logo

Fuel50-LogoWe were delighted to recently hear the news that our New Zealand partner, Fuel50, who developed the career pathing software CareerCENTRE™ (known as Fuel50 in other countries) raised $2.5 million in Series A funding, which brings total funding to an impressive $4.6 million.

Two prominent southern California firms, Rincon Venture Partners and Bonfire Ventures led this latest round of funding

The funding will help Fuel50 and 10Eighty to continue enabling leaders to engage and motivate their teams, and empower employees to have a visible career path in their organisation.

With high-quality candidates in short supply and increasing costs of talent turnover, career pathing has become more critical than ever – Deloitte named career pathing a key area that organisations should focus on.

More than 80 percent of companies want better talent mobility while 70 percent of employees leave due to lack of career development and growth opportunities.

Solutions that impact on engagement

The technology in CareerCENTRE™ addresses these gaps with solutions that directly impact on engagement, performance and retention — enabling employees to drive their own growth and performance within an organization.

Anne Fulton, CEO and Co-Founder, Fuel50 said:

“The way talent traditionally climbs the career ladder and develops skills is broken, leaving talent frustrated and companies lacking the levels of engagement and performance required to move at the pace of business today,”

“In our short history, our customers have already realised real engagement wins while top talent has developed in meaningful ways. We’ll use our funding to service our growing corps of clients and to expand our reach even further around the world.”

The funding round also introduces Jim Andelman, co-founder and Managing Director of Rincon Venture Partners and Bonfire, to Fuel50’s board.

“Career pathing is one of the next frontiers of HR technology, and Fuel50 is at the forefront of this shift, equipping companies with the tools and technology to give their talent a meaningful career trajectory,” commented Andelman.

Launched in 2014 by co-founders Anne Fulton and Jo Mills, Fuel50 (aka CareerCENTRE™) is currently used by 75 Fortune 500 companies, across 33 countries and in 28 languages, supporting hundreds of thousands of employees.

We’re in HR Grapevine’s Guide to Outplacement & Career Transition 2017/18

HR-Grapevine-Guide-to-Outplacement-2017-10Eighty

We wanted to let you know that 10Eighty is featured in a double-page article “Career transitions in the modern workplace” in HR Grapevine’s  Guide to Outplacement & Career Transition 2017/18.

The article by 10Eighty’s CEO Michael Moran looks at the modern approach to outplacement. He says that there has been a shift over the years from providing advice about CV and job hunting to understanding what an employee wants and helping them to develop self-marketing skills that put them in a good position to thrive in the contemporary competitive job market.

HR-Grapevine-Guide-to-Outplacement-2017-10Eighty

Michael discusses the importance of employability to provide employees with a more stable career path, and thanks to an analogy from LinkedIn founder, Reid Hoffman, likens the 21st-century employer-employee alliance to that of a professional sports team.

HR-Grapevine-Guide-to-Outplacement-2017-10EightyHe further argues that career transition should be integrated into the talent agenda, rather than being a service that’s reserved for those being made redundant, also that CVs are becoming a thing of the past as LinkedIn profiles and social media activity have become the new norm for marketing your skills and experience.

Lightbox – Fuel50 for happy and engaged employees

National-Quiet-Day

It is National Quiet Day on Thursday 14th September 2017. Take a moment for yourself and enjoy a little sanctuary in silence. See more at quietday.co.uk/

Professor Stephen Stansfeld says that in a busy world quiet and tranquillity may have beneficial effects on our stress levels and wellbeing.

National-Quiet-DayThe benefits of quiet come in many forms, from lowering stress levels to unleashing creativity, enhancing your senses and awareness of the world around you. Thursday, 14th is the perfect opportunity to tune out the noise of life and let in a little serenity.

Find some ear plugs and give your thoughts some space, take time to reflect on your life. Quiet time allows you to be more conscious about your actions, giving you time to consider whether you are doing what you want with your life.

When you feel the urge to rush, stop and think. Give yourself a little quiet time, only do what enhances your life.

Swedish author Charlotte Eriksson says that “Sometimes you need to sit lonely on the floor in a quiet room in order to hear your own voice and not let it drown in the noise of others.”

Quiet

A few years ago Susan Cain had a surprise success with “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking” in which she suggested that rather than sitting back and asking people to speak up, managers and company leaders might lean forward and listen.

Cain’s thesis is that shyness, sensitivity and seriousness are often seen as being negative; she shows how the brain chemistry of introverts and extroverts differs, and how society misunderstands and undervalues introverts. She gives introverts the tools to better understand themselves and take full advantage of their strengths.

Quiet people seem to be disadvantaged at work as well as socially. If you just want to do your work and try to stay in your calm, quiet world, letting everything else slide by unnoticed then you are likely to be seen as anxious, shy or unfriendly. The extrovert, outgoing and louder-mouthed members of the team don’t understand your way of working of being.

Susan Cain says that introverts can be highly creative and are more sensitive to external stimuli than extroverts, which means that an over-abundance of boisterous group work can be more exhausting. While they often need time away from colleagues in order to work effectively, quiet, private spaces are often lacking in work environments.

Introverts

The list of famous introverts includes great public speakers, innovators, and leaders such as Abraham Lincoln, Charles Darwin, Vincent Van Gogh, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Albert Einstein, Frederic Chopin, and Audrey Hepburn.

Mahatma Gandhi, renowned spiritual and political leader – and introvert – said it best: “In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”

10Eighty begins to forge post-Brexit business relationships across the pond

British-American-Business

10Eighty has recently become a member of BritishAmerican Business (BAB), a transatlantic business network dedicated to championing its members’ ideas, interests, people and values.

BAB’s 460 members are a select group of international businesses ranging from small to large, startups to established institutions, and supported by dedicated teams in London and New York.

They count some of the world’s most prominent business leaders as core supporters, thought-leaders and influencers and operate across “the best business arena on the planet – New York and London.”

British-American-Business In addition, BAB have a broader network of like-minded business associations in the major cities across North America and the UK and valued connections with the US Chamber of Commerce and the global AMCHAM network. ‎

Michael Moran, 10Eighty’s CEO said: “10Eighty’s membership of BritishAmerican Business sees us at the beginning of a new chapter in the UK’s economic journey. As we move inexorably towards post-EU trading arrangements in 2019, the special relationship between the US and UK and our close economic ties become even more significant.

That BAB’s objectives are closely attuned to the 10Eighty ethos is a bonus. Like us, they believe that the best business is personal, that all business is practical, that networking is essential to support business success and that global mobility in the workforce is critical for businesses to maintain international competitiveness.”

BAB membership complements 10Eighty’s longstanding membership of Global Outplacement Alliance, a network of national and international career service specialists supporting businesses and organisations in North America, the Caribbean, South America, Europe and Asia.

As a member 10Eighty can attend a wide range of BAB events including a Women’s Conference, hosted by the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, which is being held on 1 November 2017 when 10Eighty’s Head of Leadership Development, Joan O’Connor will be in attendance.

Team 10Eighty take on JP Morgan Corporate Challenge 2017

JP-Morgan-Corporate-Challenge-2017

Once more unto Battersea Park dear friends, once more. 10Eighty have taken part in the annual JP Morgan Corporate Challenge since our inception and this year was no exception.

On Wednesday 5 July Team 10Eighty were amongst 14,000 other runners (another cohort of runners took part on Thursday) that braved the balmy conditions and the 5,600m, which on paper seems a short distance but in a racing context the road goes on forever… or for 50-odd minutes at least!

JP-Morgan-Corporate-Challenge-2017

Emma and Nigel warm up pre-race

CEO Michael, Non-Exec Director Nigel, Business Development Director Emma, Collaborative Learning guru Trevor, Web editor Ian and Team-10Eighty-For-A-Day Natasha, good friend of Emma’s and 11th hour substitute for Operations Manager Sarah.

JP-Morgan-Corporate-Challenge-2017

Due to sheer numbers, although the starter’s pistol was fired at 6.45, most of our team didn’t reach the starting line until around 7.30. Trevor started upstream in the ‘blue stream’ for those committed to running the entire circuit.

JP-Morgan-Corporate-Challenge-2017

Natasha and Emma relax in the park….

Cheerleaders peppered the circuit, encouraged tired legs and provided motivation. Particularly noisy/motivating was the Cancer Research UK contingent positioned around the halfway mark and reminding participants of the primary reason for taking part in this fun run.

As you can see from the finishing times, Trevor and Nigel ran away with the best times, with Ian the fastest walker/jogger of the rest of us. Mind you Emma and Natasha would probably have given him a run for his money but for their strategic comfort break, early doors…

Trevor Merriden 32:58
Nigel Williams 42:26
Ian Christie 51:36
Emma Mitchell 53:47
Natasha Malby 53:54
Michael Moran 54:20

Here’s a gallery of our 6 runners taken along the route. Just click on any image to view the full-size photo and to start the slideshow:

Everyone got their ‘2017 Finisher’ t-shirt, staggered back to our meeting place, close to The Pump House Gallery, where Head of Leadership Development and self-appointed ‘bag lady’ Joan was waiting with everyone’s gear. A meal at Director Liz’s favourite Italian provided a welcome respite from the heat and solace for sore limbs as everyone looked forward the 2018 Corporate Challenge…

Another fantastic night at the HR Excellence Awards 2017

10Eighty-HR-Excellence-Awards-2017

The HR Excellence Awards were held earlier this week (is it us or do these awards seem to come around quicker each year?!). They are the longest-running, most prestigious and most hotly-contested awards in HR, now in their 22nd year with a record number of entries.

Since 10Eighty started up we’ve always supported the HR Excellence Awards, initially sponsoring the Rising Star and Young Talent categories, but for the last two years have supported the HR Future Leader of the Year category.

10Eighty-HR-Excellence-Awards-2017

This award recognises game-changing HR directors of the future and is open to any HR practitioner below HR director level, the rising stars who have already made a big impact on their organisations.

This year the awards were hosted by comedian Meera Syal on Tuesday 27 June at the London Hilton on Park Lane.

10Eighty-HR-Excellence-Awards-2017

Congratulations and high fives to Steve Othen, Head of HR at REC for winning this amazing accolade, but not forgetting  Rachel Kent, Senior HR Advisor at Shakespeare Martineau for being shortlisted, which is still a great achievement. Here’s a nice pic of Steve with our CEO Michael Moran and host Meera Syal:10Eighty-HR-Excellence-Awards-2017

The night was a huge success and a great opportunity to network, let your hair down, and celebrate truly strategic, innovative and business-critical work with fellow HR professionals.

Support Trevor’s Long Walk (100km) to Exmouth

great-ormond-street

Trevor MerridenWe wanted to let you know that our Head of Collaborative Learning, Trevor Merriden, along with 20 cricketing Dads from St Albans, Herts, is walking 100km from Weymouth to Exmouth for charity.

Trevor and his merry band from the Garden Fields Cricket Club – also known as “Men of Fields”, or MoF for short – are a collection of Dads who play friendly evening matches of 20 overs against similar Dad teams within the St Albans area.  MoF are described as “gentlemen, proper players and the rest are, well let’s just say. ‘useful chaps'”!

great-ormond-streetThey’re raising money for Great Ormond Street Hospital and Children’s Charity in memory of Maisie Ryan of Garden Fields JMI School. All their children attend this school – and when Maisie died suddenly, aged 6 last year, they wanted to do something to honour her memory. So with the support of her parents, we came up with the idea of the walk.

Over the years the Men of Fields have  raised money for charity by undertaking challenges such as the L2B bike ride, Cycling to Devon from St Albans and walked the circumference of the Isle of Wight.

When they heard of the tragic loss of little Maisie they came up with this idea – a long-distance 100km walk (60+ miles in old money) from Weymouth to Exmouth starting tomorrow 23 June and finishing on Sunday 25 June. They’ve had a fantastic response so far and have raised over £11K, but there’s still time to support MoF:

Trevor-Merriden-JustGiving-Long-Walk

Their target is £20,000 so they still need your help. Please find it in your heart to give a little (or a lot if you want) for a great cause!

Long Walk update

We got an update on Wednesday 28 June from our ‘Man in the field’, Trevor:

“The final brave man crossed the line at about 8.30pm on Monday (26 June) night – broken but alive (just) after 3 days, 65 miles (over 100km) and just under 9,000 ft of climbing – and descending again (think Ben Nevis twice and then some).

To say it was tough was somewhat of an understatement – it was brutal – and your generous sponsorship has been well and truly earned! However lots of laughs and stories – never a dull moment – and, of course, lots of blisters. Thanks to everyone who has already made a donation!”

Twitter-logoGet involved

Please donate and share the Just Giving link with others on your social media channel of choice. And if you’d like to follow Trevor’s progress before, during and after the walk, you could ‘like’ the Garden Fields CC Facebook Page or follow them on Twitter: @GFcricketclub
