    Show #127: Repositioning Employee Engagement

    in Business

    Special Guests: Andy Heath, co-founder of WeThrive; Piers Bishop, co-founder of WeThrive and Janine Osmond, Head of L&D at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust

    At WeThrive we spend our working lives talking to people whose lot is to create or maintain an engaged workforce. They don’t always put it like that – the expressed desire might be to have a happy staff, or to improve employee retention, but what they actually want in the end is a workforce that really wants to engage with the company and their work. That doesn’t just happen, of course; it’s a consequence of getting a lot of other things right, so since 2011 we have been working on a way to help HR and L&D people move employee engagement out of the realm of ‘good idea, but…’ and into the very heart of the people-management efforts.

    Janine is in the ‘interesting’ position of trying to help NHS staff stay engaged with their work at a time when the organisation is under more pressure than ever to deliver more with less, and we’d very much like to hear from you too – please email us with questions or topics you’d like covered on the show, starting at 5.15 on September 7th.

    How Wellness Programs Improve Employee Performance

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, November 18, 2015, from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).

    Last week we talked about the benefits of a blended workforce and the staffing challenges it brings, and this week we’re going to talk about how wellness programs improve employee performance.

    Making time to stay in shape isn’t easy. Frenetic schedules and longer work hours take a big bite out of exercise. Plus, according to the American Heart Association, sedentary jobs have increased 83% since 1950 and physically active jobs now make up less than 20% of our workforce. In 1960, about half of the US workforce was physically active. 

    What to do? Being physically active can boost the employees’ health and it’s good for your business as well. In fact, research shows that workers who exercise during the day reported a 15 percent boost in performance, a happier mood and increased ability to meet deadlines.

    Whether you can have an on-site corporate fitness center or not, there are simple ways you can help your employees find time for fitness and support their overall health and well-being.

    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as they talk about the benefits of a blended workforce and the staffing challenges it brings with this week’s guest: Ann Wyatt, vice president of account management at HealthFitness, a health management leader that creates effective health management and corporate fitness programs.

    Thank you to all the TalentCulture sponsors, partners and supporters!

    The Power of Healthy Habits & Best Practices for Employee Communication

    in Business

    On this week's program, hosts Andrew Dietz and Doug Field welcome special guests from WellRight and GuideSpark to the program to discuss trends and best practices in workplace wellness, employee engagement and more.

    For the first segment, the hosts welcome two guests from WellRight – Tad Mitchell, president and CEO, and Michael Guercio, content manager – to discuss their newly published book on workplace wellness. Co-authors Michael and Tad set off on a journey to figure out what makes people healthy. Their goal was to cut through today’s information overload and create a concise list of what is most important. Along the way, they discovered the power of habits. The result is a remarkably fresh and simple approach to wellness. In this interview, Michael and Tad will share the highlights of their journey and explain how their approach to wellness works.

    For the second segment, the hosts talk with Keith Kitani, CEO and co-founder of GuideSpark. The choices surrounding health care and benefits can be particularly tricky for employees; the industry jargon and sheer volume of the materials associated with benefits are often overwhelming. Yet, as benefits continue to be a differentiating factor for many organizations, in terms of attracting new talent and retaining current employees, employers must be able to simplify these often complicated topics and ensure their employees are well educated on the options available. Figuring out how best to communicate complex information in a way that enables employees and their families to identify and enroll in the best options is key to creating an engaged, satisfied, healthy and productive workforce.
