SORT BY Relevancy
Special Guest: Jackie Lanham, Group Organisation Development Director at Rexam
Rexam produces 62bn cans a year in 55 plants across more than 20 countries with an 8,000 strong workforce. Our job is to make our cans as efficiently, profitably and sustainably as possible so that our customers (some of the most popular world brands) can attract and retain the loyalty of the people who consume their products. This is why, wherever you go in Rexam, you will see a common focus on operational excellence, innovation and safety to meet our customers’ expectations.
Jackie’s focus is on building a winning organisation through providing engagement, learning and development, talent & succession planning, performance management, diversity and consultancy services.
Join us we explore what is happening at Rexam to make it a winning organisation.
Jackie starting working for Rexam in January 2014 and has broad-ranging experience in UK and international organisations across the manufacturing, retail, banking, insurance and IT sectors, most recently at The Co-operative Group where she re-engineered the approach to Talent at the most senior leadership and entry levels for all retail businesses. This work has been recognised through the 2013 HR Society Award for Workforce Planning and Strategy.
Host: Jo Moffatt
Special Guest: Adrian Phipps, Head of People & Organisation, Arqiva
Adrian is Head of People & Organisation at Broadcast & Media company Arqiva. Over the last 8 years, he has helped both Arqiva and the Insurer More Th>n (part of the RSA group) to make major improvements in employee engagement.
During his time with them, Arqiva has achieved a 1* rating in the Sunday Times Best Companies competition, and RSA was ranked as one of the Top 25 UK companies to work for. Outside of work, he is a proud (if a little tired!) father of a toddler and an 8 month old baby, and loves being out on the water – whether swimming in it or in a sea kayak.
Join us as we talk about how to make engagement “stick” in an organisation. We all know the theory and it sounds great in principle – but very few organisations make the big shifts in engagement that we hope for.
Having been part of two organisations that really have made this change, Adrian shares some useful beliefs that organisations need to hold if engagement is going to improve and also some of the practical things you can do to improve engagement where you work.

Special Guest: Mark McKergow
Being a host is an ancient metaphor, but one which has now evolved to become both new and timely in the business world. Now, it is no longer enough for a leader to be heroic, they must also know when to become the host too. But what does being a host actually mean in a business context? 'Host: Six new roles of engagement for teams, organisations, communities and movements' author Dr Mark McKergow has investigated how hosts – and leaders –create engagement by stepping forward and back and being responsive to the needs and wishes of their ‘guests’.
Mark will be talking about how ‘roles’ – as opposed to ‘rules’- of engagement provide a useable and flexible framework for transforming leadership at all levels and settings. The host metaphor is one we all know at some level, yet can enhance and build to an exquisite level of refinement with reflection and practice.
You can read more on our blog here.
Dr Mark McKergow is the co-author of Host: Six new rules roles of engagement fort teams, organisations, communities and movements (Solutions Books, 2014). He is a speaker, consultant and facilitator who finds new ways to work in tough and ever-changing environments. He is co-author of three others books including the best-selling The Solutions Focus (Nicholas Brealey Publishing, 2007) which has appeared in 11 languages.
Host: Jo Dodds
Special Guests: Steve O'Neill, John Smythe and Charelle Wigley, members of the Social Engagement Subgroup
'Making strategy social' – is a work stream within the ’Social’ sub group of Engage for Success. It wants to make explicit the best ways and means to blend social media and face to face dialogue to devise and execute better strategy. Crowdsourcing the experience, insight and knowledge of employees as well as leaders adds value to strategy design and delivery - in what might otherwise default to a traditional 'top down' process.
The small steering group behind this work stream wants to create a product that will help capture what organisational leaders - 'the C suite’ - needs to think about in making strategy development and implementation more ‘social’ in orientation - both in mindset as well as use of technology.
Join us as we discuss what this work stream is focusing on and find out how you can get involved.

HOW CIVIC ENGAGEMENT IS IMPACTING THE VOICE OF EDUCATION
NACCTEP ( Community College Teacher Ed programs) Executive Director Kim Tobey is joined by Lisa Strahley, Associate Professor of Early Childhood Education at SUNY Broome CC.
What is the connection between engagment and influence? Does work that motivates you have to come as the cost of a competitive salary? Natalie Holder-Winfield talks to Christoph Lueneburger, author of A Culture of Purpose: How to Choose the Right People and Make the Right People Choose You about these and many other questions that challenge the notions of engagement in today's organizations. During this interview, you'll hear how engaged employees add to the diversity of thought in our offices and often contribute new thoughts and improvements. You will also learn how engaged employees are necessary for keeping an organizational mission and purpose honest and in check.

Elevating Business Engagement: Beyond Preparing the Job Seeker
Preparing job seekers to get them “employment ready” with the skills to meet the needs of businesses and industry is at the core of workforce development. However, WIOA provides the workforce system with the flexibility to elevate our game and position ourselves within regional markets to engage business as a customer (with business services), as a partner (in sector strategies, apprenticeships, work-based learning) and even as a funder (to invest and leverage). “It’s not about business learning workforce development; it’s about us learning business and translating that into our vernacular and our world—I think this is critical,” said NAWB President/CEO Ron Painter in a recent video that focuses on WIOA and Business U.
Join Ron Painter for the Workforce Central Radio show at 1:00 PM EST on Wednesday, February 18th, as he interviews the executive leadership team from Business U in an exciting discussion about how workforce boards can make these key shifts to elevate business engagement in their regions.

HR Happy Hour 200 - Celebrating the Final Conversation on Employee Engagement?
Broadcast LIVE Thursday January 22, 2015 - 8PM ET
Hosts: Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane
Guest: Paul Hebert
Call in 646-378-1086
For the celebratory 200th Episode of the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve and Trish will broadcast LIVE just like in the old school HR Happy Hour Show days, this Thursday at 8:00PM ET.
Long time friend of the showm and frequent guest Paul Hebert will be along for the ride as we talk employee engagement, hopefully for the last time ever on the show. We have beaten this subject TO DEATH and still we are no closer to 'solving' engagement, or even deciding if it can be solved.
So this week on the show we will beat the topic around one last time, see if there really is a solution to engagement, and maybe and finally move on to more interesting subjects. Like robots. And the Internet of Things. And basketball.
Additionally, we will have some fun looking back at the history of the HR Happy Hour and have some laughs at Steve's expense.
This will be a really fun show, especially since we will be back LIVE this Thursday at 8:00PM ET.
Hope you can join us and jump in to the conversation on the Twitter backchannel - use hashtag #HRHappyHour to join the fun.
