HR Happy Hour 198 - What HR Will Be Talking About in 2015 (and some things HR needs to stop talking about)
Recorded Thursday January 8, 2015
For the first HR Happy Hour Show of 2015, Trish and Steve dug into some of the topics that HR leaders and pros will be talking about in 2015, and hit a few topics that (Steve especially) thinks HR needs to let go of this year.
Loosely based on a post Steve led off the year with, (and that can be found here), Trish and Steve talked about some of the big 2015 topics in HR - predictive analytics, retention, talent having the upper hand, and HR as marketing. We also hit some of the the things that maybe HR needs to step back from, whether from overuse, lack of success, or simple silliness. And let's just say your humble hosts didn't agree 100% on all of these ideas.
Additionally, Steve was SHOCKED to find out the actual HR people spend at least part of their Sunday mornings having discussions and debates about HR issues on Facebook, Steve made a case for wearing the same outfit to work every day (Trish strongly disagreed), Steve was unable to pronouce the word 'ephemeral', and your hosts had to work around an unexpected middle of the show interruption by some garage door installers (sorry, the little glitch hits at about the 18 minute mark, we did our best to smooth it out in the editing room).
This was a really fun and hopefully thought-provoking show and we hope you check it out.
