    Guests: Aimée Dodson, Thrive Director, Movement Mortgage; David Osborne, CEO, Virgin Pulse

    Listen HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, we return for our annual visit to Virgin Pulse's customer conference - the Thrive Summit where Steve sat down with Aimée Dodson from Movement Mortgage, and Virgin Pulse CEO David Osborne to talk wellbeing, engagement, and how organizations can help their people thrive at work and at home too. David shared an update on what has been happening at Virgin Pulse, but more importantly how the goal of helping organizations and their people succeed with their goals - health, financial, and more - and how leading companies are thinking about wellness more expansively and holistically - and how that drives important business and personal outcomes.

     Aimée then dug into some very specific details on Movement Mortgage's "Thrive" program - a comprehensive approach centerered around caring for their employees in four areas - health and wellness, family and relationships, personal finance, and community service. Movement is doing some incredibly innovative and successful things in their employee wellbeing efforts and Aimée shared examples like their 'Couch to 5K', 'Lose $1M in debt', and how they used social media to engage employees in these programs.

She also shared some of the ways and tools that are available to organizations - an increased focus on data and analytics to identify areas of opportunity and measure progress, the benefits of focusing on women's health and wellness - inside and outside the organizations, and finally how HR leaders can begin to change the culture in their organizations and with their leaders to better focus on these issues.

    UPDATES: What's new on the HR Happy Hour Podcast Network

    For a 'If you are working it's probably a good day to goof off a little and listen to a few podcasts' Friday, I wanted to alert and update readers as to what has been happening on what I like to call The HR Happy Hour Podcast Network.

    As a reminder, about 18 or so months ago, we launched three new podcasts - 'We're Only Human', with Ben Eubanks; 'HR Market Watch' with George LaRocque; and 'Research on the Rocks', with Madeline Laurano and Mollie Lombardi. These are all fantastic shows covering all aspects of HR, HR Tech, workplaces and leading-edge HR and HR Tech research. 

    And last week we welcomed the latest title to our growing HR Happy Hour family - 'The Human Friendly Workplace' with Jason Lauritsen.

    And of course the original, flagship HR Happy Hour Show is still going strong too, with recent episodes covering Diversity & Inclusion, AI Technology in HR, and the latest updates in Employer Health Care for 2018.

    So in case you have some free time today, or over the weekend, or while you're on the treadmill - I wanted to share a few of the most recent shows on the HR Happy Hour Podcast Network with the readers of the blog. 

    We're Only Human 23 - New Research Addressing the Skills Gap in the Workplace with Ben Eubanks

     

    Research on the Rocks 3 - Spring HR Events, Research Updates, and More with Madeline Laurano and Mollie Lombardi

    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 316 - Thinking about AI and Personalized Experiences with IBM

    HR Happy Hour 316 - Thinking about AI and Personalized Experiences with IBM

    Sponsored by Virgin Pulse

    Host: Steve Boese

    Guest Host: Madeline Laurano

    Guests: Bob Schultz, IBM; Gail Blum, NBCUniversal

    Listen HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve recorded live at IBM's Think Conference in Las Vegas, a massive event that brings together over 30K IBM customers, partners, and employees to talk and 'Think' about the future of work, business, and technology. In Part 1 of the podcast, Steve talks with Bob Schultz, General Manager of IBM's Watson Talent Business, to discuss what IBM is working on in the HR technology space - with a heavy dose of their AI intelligent Watson technology. We also talked about how AI can actually help create more personal, human, and tailored experiences for employees and candidates at scale. IBM has some of the most interesting technology in the space, and it was enlightening to catch up on what they've been doing.

    In Part 2 of the podcast, Steve welcomes guest host Madeline Laurano to talk with Gail Blum from NBCUniversal (the organization behind many of your favorite TV networks, shows, and more), about talent attraction, talent branding, and creating personal and meaningful candidate experiences. Even the world's most well-known and desirable brands like NBCUniversal have to compete hard for talent, and with the increased digitization of their business, they are now competing against more (especially tech) companies for talent. Gail shared some great insights about how they are approaching these challenges.

    We also talked Top Chef, This Is Us, and the Winter Olympics, and knitting.

    This was a fun show - thanks to IBM for having us out at Think.

    Introducing the Human Friendly Workplace Podcast

    I'm super excited to share with you the debut episode of the newest podcast on the HR Happy Hour Podcast Network - The Human Friendly Workplace Podcast hosted by employee engagement and workplace culture expert Jason Lauritsen

    On the Human Friendly Workplace Podcast, Jason will speak with HR and business leaders who are actively engaged with making their workplaces better - and more human.

    For Jason's debut episode, he talks with Graham Moody, People and Culture Manager at ansarada, an Australian company that has seen rapid growth, and has had to make sure their unique culture could scale.

    Here are the details for the show - and many thanks and a welcome to Jason - we are thrilled to have you be a part of the HR Happy Hour family.

    The Human Friendly Workplace 1 - Creating a Human Friendly Workplace

    Host: Jason Lauritsen

    Guest: Graham Moody, People and Culture Manager at ansarada

    Listen to the show HERE

    How can understanding employees’ personal values help create a stronger and more self-aware workplace? What does it mean to reevaluate and decide to change your company values, and how can you make sure employees connect with the new values?

    “We believe that values drive behavior and that behavior drives results.” - Graham Moody

    In today’s conversation Jason interviews Graham Moody with ansarada. Ansarada is headquartered in Sydney and has grown rapidly in the last 18 months, reaching nearly 200 employees while simultaneously pivoting its business model. Having strong company and personal values has always been deeply important at ansarada, and the recent changes posed a new challenge to the company culture.

    In the discussion, Moody will discuss how the company preserved the company’s culture during the rapid growth and a business focus shift. Listeners today will also learn why you should create a culture of servant-based leadership and also hear the one piece of advice he would give to managers on creating a human-friendly workplace culture.
