    PODCAST - #HRHappyHour 184 - Work and the Next Generation Leader

    HR Happy Hour 184 - Work and the Next Generation Leader

    Recorded Thursday May 22, 2014

    Host: Steve Boese

    Guest: Lindsey Pollak

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve caught up with bestselling author, and expert on Millennials in the workplace, Lindsey Pollak to talk about some of the most important developments and trends that are defining and impacting work and the workplace.

    The next generation of workers are already here - and increasingly these members of the millennial generation are assuming important and leadership roles in organizations. The smartest and most successful organizations are embracing these shifts in workplace composition and creating environments where millennial employees and leaders can make their mark in the workplace.

    Lindsey also had some great information to share about her work with The Hartford on how to better understand and plan for millennial leadership and also shared some observations and recommendations for HR and talent leaders on how to best navigate these workforce changes.

    PODCAST - #HRHappyHour 183 - Sports and HR with the 8 Man Rotation

    HR Happy Hour 183 - Sports and HR with the 8 Man Rotation

    Recorded Thursday, May 15, 2014

    Hosts: Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane

    Guests: Kris DunnMatt StollakTim SackettLance Haun

    Fantastic to have the entire crew from the 8 Man Rotation series of E-books on Sports and HR all together in the HR Happy Hour house to share some takes on the top sports issues of the day and their impact/relevance to work and workplaces everywhere.

    The 8 Man Crew hit a wide range of current sports topics - Donald Sterling, the NBA coaching turmoil, Michael Sam and the NFL's readiness for their first openly gay player, and even dipped in the world of college sports with a take on the unionization and payment of college athletes.

    Also, Steve shared his dark horse pick for the upcoming soccer World Cup, and as expected, we completely ignored the sport of hockey.

    It was a really fun and engaging show with the 8 Man crew and will make for a great weekend listen.

    PODCAST - #HRHappyHour 180 - Putting People First

    HR Happy Hour 180 - 'Putting People First' (Live from Ultimate Connections 2014)

    Recorded Thursday, April 10, 2014

    Hosts: Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane

    Guest: Cecile Alper-Leroux, Vice President of Product Strategy, Ultimate Software

    Last week Steve and Trish were able to attend Ultimate Software's Annual Connections User Conference in Las Vegas and sit down with Cecile Alper-Leroux to get an update on some of the exciting developments and happenings at Ultimate Software as well as talk about some of the ways that putting People First - in software design, in the approach to talent management, and how that leads to the best outcomes for both individuals and organizations is the key to sustained success.

    Ultimate Software, across their thousands of customers, supports over 15 million people records in the cloud. Cecile shared with us one of the primary considerations that Ultimate takes into account when building software for so many people - the almost radically different expectations people have in their relationship with any technology. People's personal lives are filled with technologies that are adaptive, responsive, fun, engaging, and are also simple to use. Those expectations and demands are now being placed on the technologies that we use in workplace as well. Cecile shared the key things to consider: provide user value, hook users in early with a great experience, and be useful and help them get their jobs done.

    We also talked about the ridiculous labor laws in France and how we all want to live there.

    Ultimate Software through their innovative technology solutions, focus on designing software experiences that place the individual's needs at the forefront, and from the deep experience that comes from over two decades of supporting their thousands of customers, have evolved to become one of the most important and influential HR technology solution providers in the industry today. 

    This was a really fun and interesting show and I encourage you to give it a listen.

    PODCAST - #HRHappyHour 179 - Data Driven HR

    HR Happy Hour 179 - 'Data Driven HR' (Live from Equifax Workforce Solutions Forum 2014)

    Recorded Tuesday, April 1, 2014

    Hosts: Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane

    Guests: Dann Adams, President, Equifax Workforce Solutions and Mike Psenka, Senior Vice President Workforce Analytics, Equifax Workforce Solutions

    Last week Steve and Trish were able to attend Equifax Workforce Solutions Annual User Conference in Scottsdale, AZ and sit down with Dann Adams and Mike Psenka to talk about some of the ways that more advanced capability and increased availability of data and analytics are changing the way HR gets done, and increasing the opportunities for HR to contribute significant business value.

    Data is increasingly the 'must have' resource for HR leaders. It can allow the leveraging of that data and the related insights on pay, turnover, and job movement from a wide swath of industries and millions of data points in order to give organizations a better understanding of how their workforce trends stack up to their peers. It also means using data and decision support tools to ensure the organization is making the right decisions and remaining compliant with complex ACA requirements.

    Equifax Workforce Solutions through their technology solutions, extensive and robust data set from which to derive insights, and the domain experience of their team are at the forefront of delivering on the promise and potential that data and analytics offer to HR leaders and organizations. On the show, Dann and Mike share a few examples and share their insights as to how HR organizations can get the most value from these data driven approaches.
