    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 305 - Workplace Movie Hall of Fame: 'Big'

    HR Happy Hour 305 - Workplace Movie Hall of Fame - 'Big'

    Hosts: Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane

    Listen to the show HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, it is the return of the popular 'Workplace Movie Hall of Fame' series with a look at 1988's massive hit 'Big' starring Tom Hanks, America's 2nd most popular and acclaimed actor. 

    On the show, Steve and Trish break down the workplace themes and issues that 'Big' explored - ideas of how young people think about work and careers, how incorporating new ideas and creative thinking from diverse sources almost always benefit workplaces, and how office politics and stodgy cultures can often get in the way of progress and innovation.

    'Big' is mostly about the tension and conflict that arises from growing up and a huge part of growing up is finding your career calling and navigating the world of work. 'Big' offers the opportunity to think about modern work and workplaces and to think about what we all expected from work and careers when we were younger.

    Additionally, Steve continued to pitch Tom Cruise as America's greatest actor, we discussed how willingness to adopt new technology has always been a great way to advance your career, and whether or not you need to say 'Spoiler Alert' when discussing plot points of a 30 year-old movie.

    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 304 - LinkedIn, Talent Insights, and Data Science in HR

    HR Happy Hour 304 - LinkedIn, Talent Insights, and Data Science in HR

    Host: Steve Boese

    Guest: Dan Shapero, Vice President of Talent Solutions, LinkedIn

    Listen to the show HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, we welcome Dan Shapero, Vice President of Talent Solutions at LinkedIn for a discussion about data science, machine learning, and how new tools and technologies are providing information, insights, and value to HR and talent management and acquisition leaders to help them make better talent decisions.

    Data is increasingly being leveraged to help employers decide whom to interview and potentially hire for open roles, to have better understanding to answer questions like 'Where should we locate the new offices?', and how to best reward, develop, and manage talent in the organization. 

    Enterprise systems are changing - in the past they only stored information. Today modern tools and technologies help organizations better understand that data, glean insights from that data, and make informed decisions as the systems learn more about the data and about the business.

    Dan shared ideas on how HR and talent leaders can begin to adopt these new approaches and technologies in their organizations, how to start the process or journey to becoming a 'data-driven' HR function, as well as some of the new technologies and capabilities that LinkedIn has been developing in these areas.

    Additionally, we learned that Dan knows recent HR Happy Hour guests Dan Heath and Sjoerd Gehring and that Steve still has not launched his all NBA show Bounding and Astounding.

    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 303 - Jeff Carr and the 'New' Zenefits

    HR Happy Hour 303 - Jeff Carr and the 'New' Zenefits

    Host: Steve Boese

    Guest: Jeff Carr, COO, Zenefits

    Listen HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve is joined by Jeff Carr, COO of HR Tech provider Zenefits. Zenefits has had a pretty wild ride in only about four years, and today is at a much different place than just a year or two ago. Jeff was really open and honest discussing Zenefits efforts to correct mistakes made in the past, (and in fairness, under a totally different leadership team), to re-brand and re-cast the company products and strategies, and what might be in the future for one of HR Tech's most interesting companies.

    While I bet just about every HR, Payroll, and HR Tech professional that will hear this show has certainly heard the name 'Zenefits', you may not be as aware at how in the last 12 - 18 months the company has looked to, for lack of a better word, emerge from its own past. This was a really interesting conversation with one of HR Tech's most experienced leaders talking about what I think is an incredibly fascinating story.

    We also talked a bit about minor league baseball, Thanksgiving, and Steve once again teased his upcoming All-NBA podcast, 'Bounding and Astounding'.

Sjoerd also shared some of the thinking that went behind developing the Shine platform, how and where to prioritize effort and focus, and what some of the early outcomes that have been seen since the new platform was launched.
