HR Happy Hour 207 - CHRO Corner with Laurie Zaucha, Paychex
Recorded Friday March 20, 2015
Hosts: Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane
Guest: Laurie Zaucha, Paychex
This week on the show, the HR Happy Hour launched a new series, the CHRO Corner, that will feature the most interesting and influential leaders in Human Resources today. Our first guest in this new series is Laurie Zaucha, VP of HR and Organizational Development at Paychex, a leading provider of HR software solutions and services having over 500K customers and upwards of 13,000 employees.
On the show, Laurie shared her insights on the role of technology in the modern HR organization, what HR leaders should be considering when evaluating technology, how Paychex has adopted several innovative and collaborative programs for candidate attraction as well as internal employee engagement, and finally some thoughts on what are some of the most important focus areas for the HR leaders of the future. Laurie is one of the most progressive HR leaders in the industry, and she shared some amazing insights on leading HR in the modern organization.
Additionally, Laurie talked about moving and shaping the culture of an organization, Steve tried to sound (reasonably) intelligent interviewing his former boss Laurie, and we all realized once again the benefits of post-production editing.
This was a fun and interesting show with one of the most innovative HR leaders in the technology industry.
Thanks to Laurie and everyone at Paychex for being part of the HR Happy Hour fun,
