    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 300 - Taking Care of Employee Caregivers

    HR Happy Hour  300 - Taking Care of Employee Caregivers

    Host : Steve Boese

    Guest: Adam Goldberg, CEO and Founder, Torchlight

    Listen to the show HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve is joined by Adam Goldberg, CEO and Founder of Torchlight, an outcomes focused, employee caregiver platform that reduces the costs and complexities of modern caregiving for families and employers in the U.S. 

    On the show, Adam talked about the growing challenge of caregiving in the US, the situation where employees have significant responsibilities outside of work with childcare, elder care, and other caregiving situations that require, time, attention, resources, and are a major source of life and work stress for employees.

    About 1 in 6 employees in the US, (that is over 20 million employees), are facing these challenges, and the changing demographics of the US and the workforce only suggest these challenges are only going to increase, making the employer response to their workforce's needs and concerns in this area more important. It is a billion dollar challenge and problem for US employers.

    Adam shared why this issue matters to him, and to workplaces, how employers have typically responded, (or not responded) in the past, and how modern, technology supported approaches, like the one developed by Torchlight can help employers and employees.

    This is a significant and growing problem in the workplace and for employees, and it was great to finally discuss this on the HR Happy Hour. Thanks to Adam for joining us.

    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 299 - Dan Heath and The Power of Moments

    HR Happy Hour 299 - Dan Heath and The Power of Moments

    Hosts: Steve BoeseTrish McFarlane

    Guest: Dan Heath

    Listen to the show HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, we welcome Dan Heath, co-author of the new book The Power of Moments, as well as previous best-sellers Switch, and Made to Stick

    On the show, Dan talked about how moments - those memorable, life-changing, and elevating moments in our work, social, and personal lives are so meaningful and memorable, and how HR and organizational leaders can craft more of these moments in our workplaces.

    Often the opportunity to create these moments happens at important life and workplace transitions - like finding out you have been hired for a new job, your first day at the new job, when you have achieved an important performance goal or milestone as so on. But too often, organizations fail to truly make these opportunities for meaningful moments live up to all they can. be. 

    Dan shared some specific examples from his research on how to create more of these important moments, and how why understanding the key elements of these moments - elevation, insight, pride, and connection, HR and business leaders can be more deliberate and intentional on creating more moments that matter at work and for employees.

    My HR Technology Conference Top 10 List #HRTechConf

    I'm back! 

    Sorry (not really sorry), for the dearth of posts the last 10 or 12 days, but the run-up prior, the event itself, and the necessary de-compression from the 20th Annual HR Technology Conference has kept me pretty busy.

    But after two decent nights sleep since I have been home, feel finally ready to get back to the blog and later this week, to the HR Happy Hour Show as well.

    But I didn't want to move on from  this year's  HR Tech without sharing some thoughts, observations, and most importantly thanks to the people that make HR Tech great, and who I count on every year for insight, guidance, and support.

    So in classic David Letterman style, (still the best late night host), here is my Top 10 'Chairman's Top 10 Moments at HR Tech', direct from the home office in Rochester, NY.

    Number 10...

    #VegasStong. It was great to have at HR Tech back in Las Vegas, our spiritual home, after a quick detour to Chicago in 2016. Of course, the events in Vegas the week prior made the return of the show to Las Vegas even more poignant. Many, many thanks to the HR Tech community for rallying support and donations to the Las Vegas victim's fund, and to LRP Publications  for their generous support. The HR Tech community is a close, supportive, and caring one, and it showed last week for sure.

    Number 9...

    #ChairmansHappyHour. Thanks to my colleagues, my friends, and my pals at Namely for what was a great birthday party for me and two of my best HR Tech friends. Truly a night I will not forget. Namely are really good people and my little group of Chairman's party people are the best in the industry.

    Number 8...

    Puppies. The cool folks at HighGround once again brought all the cute to the HR Tech Expo. And I don't care if you think it is a kind of cheap stunt to drive traffic. Puppies are the best. 

    Number 7...

    Opening keynoter Laszlo Bock. Super impressive person, fantastic content and message in his opening presentation. Met him for the first time in person backstage prior to the session, and he couldn't have been cooler. Look for him on an upcoming HR Happy Hour Show soon.

    Number 6...

    Closing keynoter Josh Bersin. Man, this guy just delivers. Great information, great insight, and I could have listened for another hour if we had the time. Awesome.

    Number 5...

    Our revised, revamped, and improved 'Discovering the Next Great HR Technology Company' process. Adding an element of public voting during the summer added an element of suspense and fun, and brining only the four finalists to the Conference made for a better on-site experience. This was one of my top moments of the show. Congrats to our winner Blueboard and many thanks to George Larocque, Madeline Laurano, Ben Eubanks, and Lance Haun for all the help.

    Number 4...

    The 2nd Annual Women in HR Technology Summit that was held on the Conference's opening day was an incredible event. Building on last year's launch, we had a fantastic set of presentations and panels from an amazing set of leaders in our industry. And once again, we had record interest and attendance for content, sharing, and networking at this event. The Women in HR Tech Summit was the perfect way to launch HR Tech this year, and I look forward to growing and improving the Summit next time. Special thanks go out to opening keynoter Pat Milligan, closing keynoter Christina Van Houten, and to some of the best leaders in HR Tech today - Trish McFarlane, Cecile Alper-Leroux, Gretchen Alarcon, Kirsten Helvey, and Cara Capretta for their unwavering support.

    Number 3...

    HR Tech is Global. After the show ends, I usually hang around for a bit to talk to attendees, find out what people thought about the event, and take a few deep breaths. One of the consistent things I have found is that many of the people I chat with at the end of the Conference are ones who have come from the longest way to attend. This year I met (and took photos with) people from China, Mexico, Japan, Brazil, and Australia all inside about 20 minutes. Which was awesome. Stay tuned for more HR Tech Conference global events.

    Number 2...

    Mollie Lombardi. She's probably my hero. She should be yours too. Please go to HR Gives Back and do what you can.

    And Number 1...

    The HR Tech Community. Seeing everyone in the HR Tech Conference Community all in one place. We had an amazing event for sure. I know most people are too kind to come right up to me at the event and complain, (some do), but in the 5 years I have been the program chair at HR Tech I have not received more positive feedback. I don't take credit for that - there is an incredible team of professionals at LRP that make the event hum, and there is an amazing community of HR leaders, HR tech companies, and industry analysts and press that all contribute to the event.

    HR Tech remains the Town Hall Meeting for everyone, whatever the role, who cares about how the combination of people and technology will make workplaces better, help organizations achieve their goals, and make people's work lives better. Only at HR Tech.

    Thanks for an amazing Conference and for being a part of this fantastic community.

    And make sure to mark your calendar for HR Tech #21 - September 11 - 14, 2018 in Las Vegas.

    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 298 - HR and the Productivity Network

    HR Happy Hour 298 - HR and the Productivity Network

    Hosts: Steve BoeseTrish McFarlane

    Guest: Mike Psenka, President & Founder, Moovila

    Listen to the show HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve and Trish talk with Mike Psenka of Moovila, a technology solution designed to help people work together more effectively. While we all know that email is likely the worst tool for supporting collaboration and execution of important projects and goals, so many organizations continue to resort to email to facilitate how work is done. And the newer generation of enterprise collaboration tools that are 'chat' centric, have the potential to reduce organizational reliance on email, have their own limitations as their unstructured nature makes it hard for people to leverage them to tackle important and complex projects and tasks.

    On the show Mike discusses these challenges, and how he and the team at Moovila are taking a different approach to collaboration, execution, transparency, and accountability. By making collaboration more purposeful, the activities and contributions of team members more visible and open, and creating a platform designed to support the real goals and vision of the organization, and not just collaboration for its own sake, Moovila is breaking new ground in the HR and workplace technology market.

    Additionally, Steve provided a solid 'I hate email' rant, Trish shared some perspective on the upcoming HR Tech Conference, and we learned the true meaning of the word "Moovila'.

    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 297 - Enterprise Learning and Development in 2017

    HR Happy Hour 297 - Enterprise Learning and Development in 2017

    Host: Steve Boese

    Guest: Jenny Dearborn, SVP and CLO, SAP

    Listen to the show HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve is joined by Jenny Dearborn, SVP and Chief Learning Officer of SAP to talk about enterprise learning and development, the role of technology, and how companies and individuals can best prepare themselves for the world of work ahead.

    With all the changes, dynamism, and challenges facing organizations as well as employees with respect to ongoing learning, skills development, and the need to prepare both our organizations and ourselves for the future world of work, the role of the learning leader and its importance have changed over time.

    From the era of 'formal' training, to design focused approaches, to the modern world of mobile and social learning, the need for organizations, and HR and learning leaders to continuously adapt and change has never been more important.

    Jenny shared insights from her perspective as the CLO of a large, global organization, as well as her years advising both individuals and organizations as they contend with important learning and development challenges in 2017 and beyond.

    Additionally, Jenny and Steve talked about their mutual love and admiration for super heroes and comic books, and geeked out about Wonder Woman.
