    PODCAST - HR Happy Hour 265 - Women in HR Technology

    HR Happy Hour 265 - Women in HR Technology

    Hosts: Steve Boese

    Guest: Bianca McCann, VP, HR Expert Network Cloud HCM, SAP

    Listen to the show HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve Boese is joined by Bianca McCann, VP of the HR Expert Network for Cloud HCM at SAP to talk about the recent Women in HR Technology Summit that was held at the HR Technology Conference in Chicago in early October. 

    Bianca shared her insights on the Women in HR Tech Summit, the importance of framing these issues in the organization as business challenges and business opportunities, and not just HR programs or 'we should do this because it feels right' activities. Diversity should be looked at as a business imperative and the way to actually move the needle in the organization is to look for root causes, and set about addressing these causes.The key is to bring facts and data to the table, and think through the problems in a manner that is similar to taking on all kinds of business challenges.

    We also talked about the real business benefits from more diverse workplaces in the areas of innovation and growth or market share, the idea of the Illusion of Truth, the importance of listening to what the organization is saying about these issues, and some practical steps that organizations can take right away to become better and more inclusive workplaces, particularly for women in technology roles.

    PODCAST - #HRHappyHour 263 - Introducing HR Market Watch

    A few weeks back Trish McFarlane and I shared the exciting news of the launch of the HR Happy Hour Podcast Network, and shared the details on the first three new podcast titles joining the HR Happy Hour family. Two of the new podcasts, Research on the Rocks, with hosts Madeline Laurano and Mollie Lombardi, and We're Only Human, with host Ben Eubanks made their successful debuts on the network earlier this summer, and Trish and I can't be more pleased with how well both those shows have been received by the HR Happy Hour listeners.

    Today I am really excited to share the debut episode of the third new podcast title on the HR Happy Hour Network, HR Market Watch, with host George LaRocque, industry analyst and founder of #HRWINS.

    On HR Market Watch, George will focus on the HR Technology landscape, with a focus on new and emerging technologies from both startups and established solution providers, and share his and his guest's insights as to how these technology innovations can help you and your organization today.

    On the first HR Market Watch show, George interviews Jamie True, CEO of LifeWorks, recently selected as 'The Next Great HR Technology Company' by attendees of the HR Technology Conference.

    Details for this first show are below, and we can't be more excited to welcome George to the HR Happy Hour family!

    The 19th Annual HR Technology Conference concluded last week, and on this episode of the HR Happy Hour Show, HR Tech Program Chair Steve Boese, and H3 HR Advisors CEO, and Conference speaker Trish McFarlane review some of the memorable sessions of the Conference, talk about some of the key themes and trends from the event, and talk about some of the key takeaways for HR and business leaders.

    Steve and Trish cover some of the Conference's highlights, including the first ever Women in HR Tech Summit, the first 'Discovering the Next Great HR Technology Company' competition, the All-Star CHRO panel led by moderator Soledad O'Brien, the 2nd Annual HR Tech Hackathon, (and Hacklab), and what is always an attendee favorite - the Ideas and Innovators 'Ignite' presentations.

    Plus, we talk about some of the innovations from the Expo floor, the continued importance of 'core' HR technologies like Payroll and Benefits, and the fact that the show probably needs some new intro and outro music.
