Contractor Management Strategy – Insights from a Survey of Decision Makers

Session Description
Contractors and suppliers play a strategic role in the business ecosystem. They enable Hiring Organizations to streamline their operations, manage their risk exposure, optimize their cost structure and sharpen their focus on core competencies. For some organizations, it is not uncommon for 80 percent or more of their work activities to be outsourced and completed by third-party contracting companies.

There is growing recognition that Hiring Organizations in both the public and private sectors are challenged to accomplish their organizational contractor management objectives (work being completed in a safe, reliable, and sustainable manner) while working through internal Constraints (such as leadership priorities, competing resource allocation, integration of internal systems) and external constraints (such as shortage of qualified contractors and competent work force, reliance on subcontractor relationships and regulatory environment).

A survey of Hiring Organizations was conducted by ISN for the purpose of providing answers and insights into these questions. This publication summarizes the survey feedback provided by 204 decision makers across 161 Hiring Organizations. The information provides insights into the attributes of leading Hiring Organizations and enables organizations to benchmark themselves with their peers.

Ultimately, the objective of the report is to help organizations across all industries who rely on contractors to drive continual improvement in their efforts toward a zero-incident workplace and reliable operations.

Learning Objectives
Recognize the challenges and the top priorities pursued by decision makers. Understand characteristics of leading organizations in their contractor management journey and how these companies are driving continual improvement. Identify where leaders and decision makers in organizations should focus their attention in their strategic planning considerations.

Linking H&S with Business Performance: A Neuroscience Pilot Study 

Session Description
Can recent discoveries in neuroscience help us better understand the relationship between health and safety and business performance?

The answer is Yes. In fact, by using neuroscience as our platform for understanding, we can begin to see a strong, direct link between these two distinctly different domains of business: H&S and business performance.

In this workshop session, you will learn about the results of a neuroscience pilot study, conducted in the manufacturing industry of West Virginia, USA. In this pilot study, certain health and safety activities were augmented in ways that stimulate and regulate specific brain regions. These brain regions are linked to well-being, situational awareness, as well
as risk detection, evaluation and response. Then monitoring took place to assess the ways these H&S augmentations also impacted employee engagement and adaptive capacities.

Join us for a fascinating and relevant conversation on neuroscience and its’ implications on H&S and business performance. Learn three key objectives that include, 1) the ways neuroscience can be applied to H&S, 2) what H&S activities stimulate neural circuits linked to situational awareness, risk detection and response, and 3) how these activities also build adaptive and generative capacities within your workforce.

Learning Objectives
Identify ways neuroscience can be applied to improve H&S. Understand what H&S activities stimulate neural circuits linked to situational awareness, risk detection and response. Recognize how H&S activities can also build adaptive and generative capacities within your workforce.
