    HR Happy Hour 296 - HR Gives Back 2017

    Hosts: Steve BoeseTrish McFarlane

    Guest: Mollie Lombardi

    Listen HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve and Trish welcome Mollie Lombardi from Aptitude Research Partners to talk about HR Gives Back, an initiative to support and raise funds for Parkinson's Disease research.

    HR Gives Back was started by a group of HR industry veterans and is an all-volunteer effort to connect the generosity of the HR technology community to causes we believe in. With the support of the HR Technology Conference, and all of their amazing sponsors, they believe that together we can make a real difference for those impacted by Parkinson's disease by speeding a cure.

    Mollie shared how HR professionals and attendees of the upcoming HR Technology Conference can get involved with HR Gives Back through donations, events, advocacy, swag and more. And we even got to geek out on Payroll technology at the end of the show.

    WEBINAR: The Business Value of Employee Wellbeing

    Quick announcement and an invitation to join me at my friends from Virgin Pulse next Wednesday, September 6 at 2PM ET for a FREE webinar on The Business Value of Employee Wellbeing.

    This is an incredibly interesting topic, one that I have written about previously at HR Executive and about which Trish McFarlane and I did a recent HR Happy Hour Podcast on.

    Details for next weeks' webinar are here:

    Employees today are working more hours, taking less time off, more stressed, exercising less and falling short of reaching their potential – at work and at home. Successful HR and benefits leaders are smarter and more thoughtful about how wellbeing programs have an impact in driving desired people and business outcomes.

    Join "The Business Value of Employee Wellbeing" with Steve Boese (that's me), long-time HR industry influencer and co-founder of H3HR Advisors. Steve will share his unique perspectives from having served in product development, enterprise HR and benefits system management, as an industry analyst, and now a popular industry voice and thought leader. Andrew Jacobus, Vice President of Insights and Data Science at the Virgin Pulse Institute, will share real-life examples of organizations achieving improvements to their bottom line due to the effectiveness of their employee wellbeing programs.

    On the webinar you will hear:

    What key elements of wellbeing programs drive business results

    Which metrics illustrate employee wellbeing’s impact on productivity, performance, and revenue

    How to drive engagement through social connections and a personalized experience

    And more...

    It should be a fun an interesting session and I hope you can join.

    Register for the webinar here.

    Hope to see you then!

    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 293 - Workplace Movie Hall of Fame: Flashdance

    HR Happy Hour 293 - Workplace Movie Hall of Fame - Flashdance

    Hosts: Trish McFarlaneSteve Boese

    Listen HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve and Trish continue The Workplace Movie Hall of Fame series with a look at the big HR and workplace themes in the 1983 hit "Flashdance".

    Flashdance was released in 1983 and starred Jennifer Beals as Alex and Michael Nouri as the boss. Alex is a female dynamo: steel worker by day, exotic dancer by night. Her dream is to get into a real dance company, though, and with encouragement from her boss/boyfriend, she may get her chance

    Flashdance was also the 3rd highest grossing film in the US in 1983 - $92.9M.

    The film has several big HR and workplace themes running though it - some seriously hostile and harassing work environments for women, a probably inappropriate, (and definitely creepy) romance between the boss and one of his very young employees, how leaders do or do not support employee's dreams and career goals, and the importance of having a more expansive and inclusive idea of talent and potential.

    We dug into how these themes are portrayed in the movie, how they inform how we think about work and workplaces today, and what we can learn from looking back at some really different norms in workplaces in 1983.

    Steve and Trish also talked about the importance of leadership, kindness in the workplace, and even if it is ever appropriate to kiss and/or hug at work.
