    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 342 - Sports and HR with The 8 Man Rotation

    HR Happy Hour 342 - Sports and HR with The 8 Man Rotation

    Sponsored by Virgin Pulse - www.virginpulse.com

    Host:Steve Boese 

    Guests: Kris Dunn, Lance Haun

    Listen HERE

    Today on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve was joined by two of the founding members of the 'Sports and HR' crew known as The 8 Man Rotation. Kris, Lance, and Steve broke down three recent HR and workplace issues taken from the world of sports.

    The crew discussed the recent harassment and hostile workplace charges at the NBA's Dallas Mavericks organization, how the City of Pittsburgh is implementing a form of the NFL's 'Rooney Rule' to try and improve diversity and representation of underserved populations in City's workforce, and how one innovative technology is moving from the football field and into corporate America.

    Sports were the source of these topics, but the true topics were harassment in the workplace, the responsibility of leaders to respond to harassment reports, diversity in sourcing and hiring, and how modern technology is changing workplace training - all 'real' HR issues.

    This was a fun, interesting, and engaging conversation about how these important workplace issues have originated in the world of sports, but have relevance and importance in the 'real world' too.

    Additionally, we broke down budget hotels in the southeast, the best dining options at Publix, and Tim Sackett's shameless use of exclamation points in blog post titles.

    Thanks Kris and Lance for joining us!

    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 339 - Using Culture and Feedback to Evolve Performance Management

    HR Happy Hour 339 - Using Culture and Feedback to Evolve Performance Management

    Sponsored by Virgin Pulse - www.virginpulse.com

    Host: Steve Boese

    Guests: Keri Smith, Director of Human Resources, Business Partner and Organizational Development, HH Hunt; Joshua Howland, Director of Product, OC Tanner Labs

    Listen HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve recorded live from the OC Tanner Influence Greatness Conference in Park City, Utah and learned how HH Hunt, a 2,000 employee organization is evolving their performance management practices. On the show, Keri Smith of HH Hunt shared their journey from the classic, annual, highly structured, formal, ratings-based, and pretty much hated annual performance review processes, to a newer approach centered around the 1-1 relationship between a manager and an employee. She discussed how the organization prepared to change their performance management practices, how they have set up a framework and structure for managers to lead impactful and engaging conversations with their employees, and how these new methods have served to solidify and strengthen both organizational culture and individual performance.

    Joshua shared how the newly released capabilities in the OC Tanner Culture Cloud have supported Keri and HH Hunt in these initiatives and how they are working with all kinds of organizations to enable and empower culture-centered change. You can learn more and sign up for a free trial of these new capabilties at www.octanner.com.

    This was an interesting show and great look at 'life after performance reviews.'

    HR Happy Hour 332 - The 2018 Deloitte Human Capital Trends Report

    Sponsored by Virgin Pulse - www.virginpulse.com

    Hosts: Steve BoeseTrish McFarlane

    Guest: Erica Volini, Leader, US Human Capital Practice, Deloitte

    Listen HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, hosts Steve Boese and Trish McFarlane are joined by Erica Volini from Deloitte, to take a deep dive into some of the most important themes and trends from the 2018 Deloitte Human Capital Trends Report.

    On the show, Erica shared some of the insights that the Deloitte team gained from their in-depth survey of over 11,000 global HR and business leaders. Some of theme and trends we talked about on the show are the emergence of the social enterprise - the idea that organization need to think more broadly about the value they create in society, the need for HR and business leaders to think about designing and supporting employee careers as set of experiences, and how more organizations are embracing holistic approaches to employee wellbeing as a driver of business success.

    There is so much great information, data, and insights in the report, we honestly just scratched the surface of what is truly relevant and important for HR leaders. We plan on doing a follow-up show this fall to dig into the data even more.
