    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 233 - Knowing Your HR Potential

    HR Happy Hour 233 - Knowing Your HR Potential

    Recorded Thursday February 4, 2016

    Hosts: Steve BoeseTrish McFarlane

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve Boese and Trish McFarlane recorded a podcast of a rehearsal on the day before a webinar that actually happened last Friday. I know that might be a little confusing, but just think of the show as the audio track for a webinar for the Cleveland SMA called 'Know Your Potential', (slides have been loaded up to Slideshare and are embedded below), that Steve and Trish delivered last week.

    The webinar (and this podcast), covered a range of topics, trends, and tips for HR, recruiting, and talent professionals - all aimed towards getting the most out of your potential for excellence in 2016.  So on the show we talk about some of the important trends for 2016, why they matter for HR and Talent pros, and how to leverage these trends in your professional life. Additionally, we shared some advice and tips on maximizing the value from online, social, and professional networks - an always interesting and rapidly changing space. Finally, while the webinar, (and attached sldes), covered some emerging HR and recruiting technologies, we cut the podcast short before this topic, as we will revisit it on its own show soon.

    PODCAST - #HRHappyHour 232 - Culture and Technology at Ultimate Software

    HR Happy Hour 232 - Culture and Technology at Ultimate Software

    Recorded Monday January 25, 2016 at Ultimate Software HQ, Weston, Fl

    Hosts: Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane

    Guest: Adam Rogers, CTO, Ultimate Software

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, while Trish McFarlane was on assignment, Steve Boese welcomed Adam Rogers, CTO from Ultimate Software to the show. Ultimate is a leading provider of HCM technology that has grown over the years from a few people sharing office space in a law office, to an almost 3,000 person-strong organization supporting thousands of customers in the US and around the world.

    But perhaps more important than Ultimate's technology innovation is their unique culture, which reinforces their commitment to their employees, their families, the Ultimate customers, and finally, their shareholders. Ultimate has a slogan, 'People First', and once you spend some time with Ultimate people, and hear them talk about what Ultimate represents, reinforces, and values, you will walk away understanding why and how they have won so many 'Best Places to Work' awards - with the signifying banners adorning the rafters of the basketball court that is in the lobby of the Ultimate HQ.

    On the show, Ultimate's CTO Adam Rogers shares his perspective and insights on the unique and refreshing Ultimate culture, how that culture informs hiring decisions, customer service and support, and even the way they approach building new and innovative HR technology solutions. Additionally, Adam shared some thoughts about the next evolution of predictive analytics technology for HR as well as some opportunities to innovate in 'commodity' solutions like payroll and employee self-service.

    This was an enormously fun show to do, and many thanks to Adam and the team at Ultimate for hosting the HR Happy Hour show this week.

    In addition, Steve (the host Steve), made a semi-serious pitch for the return of employee pensions, Trish shared a bit of a preview for the widely anticipated HR Happy Hour Oscars show coming soon, and Steve shamelessly appealed for some big-time corporate sponsors to come on board, (are you listening Delta and Dr. Pepper?).

    HR Happy Hour 230 - Email Me! Battling Constant Connectivity

    Recorded Wednesday January 6, 2016

    Hosts: Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane

    Listen HERE

    This week on the show Steve and Trish recorded the first HR Happy Hour Show of 2016 by chatting about email and the impact of connectivity on multiple platforms.   We somehow get derailed a little bit and end up hearing what Steve plans to do before conference season starts.  Hint....it has to do with facial hair!

    We wind talking about not making predictions about the HCM industry.  Instead, we cover what should HR leaders be talking about in 2016.  From intelligent technology, the world of benefits, to the importance of the employee experience, we cover it all.  Please listen in and then weigh in on what you think is important for the upcoming year.
