    HR Happy Hour 360 - Creating a More Inclusive Workplace

    Hosts: Trish McFarlaneSteve Boese

    Guest: Dr. Laura Hamill, Chief People Officer and Chief Science Officer, Limeade

    Listen HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve and Trish were joined by Dr. Laura Hamill of Limeade to talk about inclusion in the workplace, how it is different from diversity, and how organizations can become more inclusive.On the show, Laura shared her definition of inclusion, how it differs from diversity, even though the two ideas are almost always paired, and how inclusion needs to be something that organizations keep top of mind. 

    Laura also shared some of the findings from research from the Limeade Institute on how it is the behavior of peers that matters in the workplace when it comes to worker's feelings of inclusion and this is where many organizations fall short. We also touched upon the difference between being truly inclusive and just being 'nice' in the workplace. Finally, Laura shared some ideas on how inclusion needs to fit into a holistic wellbeing program encompassiing things like wellness, engagement and innovation. 

    We also talked about winter weather, dog names, and whether or not 'Friends' was really a New York show.

    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 315 - Breaking Through with Diversity & Inclusion

    HR Happy Hour 315 - Breaking Through with Diversity & Inclusion

    Sponsored by Virgin Pulse - www.virginpulse.com.

    Host: Steve Boese

    Guests: Cecile Alper-Leroux, Dr. Jarik Conrad - Ultimate Software

    Recorded Live at Ultimate Connections 2018

    Listen to the show HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve is joined by Cecile Alper-Leroux and Dr. Jarik Conrad from Ultimate Software to talk about the challenges organizations are facing with Diversity & Inclusion initiatives and the keys for organizations who want to improve and make progress in these areas. Cecile and Jarik talked about the definitions of diversity and inclusion, the importance of appreciation and acceptance at work of all people from all backgrounds, and what people want from work in the modern era.

    One of the interesting points discusses in the show was the idea that organizations can't jump right from awareness of these issues into solutions - there is an important stage of preparation or 'readiness' that has to be addressed in organizations and especially with leaders and managers before solutions can be developed and implemented. So 'readiness' is the pre-condition before action.

    We also discussed some of the research around the business benefits of Diversity & Inclusion initiatives, and why these benefits do not necessarily resonate equally in all contexts. Finally, we talked about how, where, and when in the HR/Talent lifecycle in organizations that bias, sometimes unconscious bias, can be introduced and how some of the modern HCM technology solutions are helping organizations detect and try to minimize and eliminate these biases.

    Finally, Cecile shared her recent mountaineering adventure and Steve and Jarik bonded over baldness.
