    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 331 - Accountability, Culture, and Workplace Investigations

    HR Happy Hour 331 - Accountability, Culture, and Workplace Investigations

    Hosts: Steve BoeseTrish McFarlane

    Guest: Dana Barbato, InvestiPro

    Sponsorsed by Virgin Pulse - www.virginpulse.com

    Listen to the show HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, hosts Steve Boese and Trish McFarlane talk about workplace investigations with guest Dana Barbato, Founder and CEO of InvestiPro, a cloud-based employee relations platform that supports HR through employee incident reporting, automated workplace investigations, and timely prevention analytics. On the show we talked about the current climate of HR and workplace investigations, how it probably has never been a more important topic in HR, (think about Uber, Intel, Papa John, and so many more current examples), and how when done right - workplace investigations can strengthen an organization's culture, create accountability, and show employees how much the organization is committed to their values and mission.

    Dana shared some of the most important things to remember when carrying out effective investigations, and how modern technologies can assist HR leaders in creating the consistency needed to undertake the investigative process, and reach the best and most fair outcomes.

    Additionally, we had a heated debate on the merits or demerits of flavored or 'stunt' Oreo cookies and the importance of air conditioning in the summer.

    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 330 - Why is Hiring Still So Hard? (and How to Make it Easier)

    HR Happy Hour 330 - Why is Hiring Still So Hard? (And How to Make it Easier)

    Host: Steve Boese

    Guest: Frida Polli, CEO and Co-Founder of Pymetrics

    Sponsored by Virgin Pulse

    Listen to the show HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve is joined by Frida Polli, CEO and Co-Founder of Pymetrics, a company using neuroscience and AI to help match candidate with jobs. On the show, Frida shared her path from earning her PhD in Neuroscience to taking on the problem of hiring - and trying to solve or at least improve and modernize the traditional hiring process.

    Frida shared how traditional approaches to hiring - resumes that become the first screening tool, common methods of interviewing - 'Tell me about a time when...', and relying on homogenous internal networks and referrals to fill roles are not the most effective, fair, and optimal ways to best match candidates with jobs. The first year failure rates of candidates being so high bears this out. 

    Pymetrics have taken on this problem with a modern, science-based and technology-driven approach that helps both organizations and candidates find their best fit and match. Rather than rely on traditional tools and methods like personality and cognitive tests, they use a different way of tapping into these traits by looking at behaviors, and leveraging modern technology - machine learning and AI - in order to help match the traits of high-performing incumbent employees with candidates by putting both groups through the same tests and comparing the results. The bottom line: technology is advancing and helping to make hiring easier after all.

    This was a really interesting conversation - thanks so much to Frida for joining us.

    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 329 - Reimagining and Redesigning Employee Performance Management

    HR Happy Hour 329 - Reimagining and Redesigning Employee Performance Management

    Sponsored by Virgin Pulse - www.virginpulse.com

    Host: Steve Boese

    Guests: Laurie Zaucha, VP Human Resources and Organizational Development; Tom Hammond, VP Corporate Strategy and Product Management, Paychex

    Listen HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve is joined by Laurie Zaucha and Tom Hammond of Paychex - one of the largest HR technology companies who have completely redesigned their internal performance management processes.

    Paychex is both a major player in the HR Technology space - they have over 650,000 clients and process payroll for 1 in 12 US workers, and is a large, complex, and dynamic technology company with over 14,000 employees.

    On the show, we talked about how Paychex has evolved their performance management processes to a new format and structure called the 4x4 - four simple yet important questions, reviewed four times a year by managers and employees, which has helped to keep employees focused on their most important goals, enabled managers to do more coaching and development, and helped the organization become more agile and responsive to changing customer and business needs.

    If you are an HR leader stuck between the traditional annual performance process, and the newer totally unstructured, feedback-driven tools that have become trendy but may not actually keep employees and the organization overall remain aligned, this 4x4 approach to performance development may be just the right and most impactful balance between the two.

    Thanks to Laurie and Tom for sharing their insights and for hosting the HR Happy Hour Show.
