    HR Happy Hour #230: Email Me! Battling Constant Connectivity

    in Business

     


    HR Happy Hour 230 - Email Me! Battling Constant Connectivity


    Hosts: Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane


    This week on the show Steve and Trish recorded the first HR Happy Hour Show of 2016 by chatting about email and the impact of connectivity on multiple platforms.   We somehow get derailed a little bit and end up hearing what Steve plans to do before conference season starts.  Hint....it has to do with facial hair!


    We end talking about not making predictions about the HCM industry.  Instead, we cover what should HR leaders be talking about in 2016.  From intelligent technology, the world of benefits, to the importance of the employee experience, we cover it all.  Please listen in and then weigh in on what you think is important for the upcoming year.


    And of course you can listen to and subscribe to the HR Happy Hour Show on iTunes, or via your favorite podcast app. Just search for 'HR Happy Hour' to download and subscribe to the show and you will never miss a new episode.

    Podcast: What All the Performance Management Changes Mean for Total Rewards Team

    in Business

    In the past year nearly 50 percent of companies have considered eliminating performance evaluations and 85 percent of them, say HR professionals, are seeking to simplify the performance management process. This shift has a significant impact on how compensation and benefits managers determine employee incentives.


    Consequently those that run compensation and benefits functions, or "total rewards" as it's often known, should focus on three priorities in particular this year.


    1    Pay-for performance initiatives and how total rewards leaders reward employees when performance management ratings are being eliminated.


    2    Return on investment in the total rewards function, and ensuring that HR teams working on the projects that will have the greatest impact on employee retention and engagement.


    3    Setting forward-looking quarterly goals that focus on skill development, and aligning rewards with that development, instead of looking back and rewarding past performance; something that typically occurs with an annual review.



    Monique McCloud-Manley, practice leader of the CEB Total Rewards Leadership Council, discusses these trends and how total rewards professionals should respond.

    Why Every Gal or Pal Needs a Local Sports Pal

    in Sports

    Nick Cattles from ESPN Radio 94.1 is my guest today. He is my local sports radio guy, and let me tell you how important it is for a Gal Pal to have one as knowledgable and tolerant as Nick. His love of sports is only matched by his love of broadcasting which is evident in the amount of prep time he takes - daily, for his show. Then there is the need to balance his own love of the sports he would love to talk about compared to what his audience cares about. 


    Nick simply is a great sports guy and worth you listening to.


    You can stream his show on http://www.espnradio941.com/

    How HR Leaders Achieve Talent Brand Dominance

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live in the New Year on Wednesday, January 27, 2016, from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).


    Last week we talked about how tech pros can help assess and hire tech pros, and this week we’re going to talk about how HR leaders achieve talent brand dominance.


    Employers are obviously constantly aware of the state of their company brand. But very few organizations realize the impact of their talent brand on both their reputation to job seekers and company morale amongst existing employees. 


    A talent brand is what talent (which comprises both working and non-working Joes) thinks, feels, and shares about your company as a place to work.


    Contrary to what employers believe, according to this week’s guest, less than 30 percent of the working population cares about their company’s product brand. What they are concerned with is how employers approach caring for their people and addressing their needs. Most hiring authorities aren’t coming to terms to deal with the reality that their talented employees have options. 


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as they talk about how HR leaders achieve talent brand dominance with this week’s guest: Joan Graci, CEO and President of APA Solutions, a boutique employment and human capital consulting firm.


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