SORT BY Relevancy
2016 is the year for big changes in HR. From creating more matrixed work environments to rethinking performance metrics and identifying and cultivating the next level of leadership, HR executives have a lot on their plate. We recently sat down with Adam Brinegar, a senior business and research leader for CEB’s Corporate Leadership Council to get his thoughts on the critical areas of focus for the year.
On top of the list of priorities for 2016, Brinegar outlines the importance of building a change-capable workforce. There are many questions that need to be asked in this area and evaluated. Looking at your environment and considering whether the workforce itself needs to be agile or if different management of the workforce will enable more agility and flexibility. How do leaders cultivate this change-capable workforce and then how this change gets communicated across the organization?
Another priority, according to Brinegar is rethinking high potentials and how organizations identify, cultivate and retain these employees. The Corporate Leadership Council is finding a shift in the trends in this area, as organizations are investing money in programs that identify and cultivate high potential employees, yet doesn’t necessarily focus on retention.
In this latest podcast on 2016 HR trends, Brinegar expresses his true excitement in the tools that CEB will be providing to members. “We’ll be able to provide our members with a playbook that will enable them to execute on some of these changes,” he tells us. And goes on to say that despite the many changes that will occur in 2016, the Council will provide the tools to help members navigate those changes and be more effective.
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.
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.
On today's show the Sports Gal Pal brings in one of her favorite podcasters and cohost of the Cooper & Rupert Podcast, the delightful Doug Cooper. Doug is a Texas native who now lives in California and has a great perspective on being a Texas fan for most things - but he is one of the most reasonable minds on the topic of sports and where we as a society have them in our lives.
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/

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!
