HR Happy Hour 348 - Back to Human with Dan Schawbel
Host: Steve Boese
Guest: Dan Schawbel
Sponsored by Virgin Pulse - www.virginpulse.com
This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve was joined by Dan Schawbel, author of Back to Human: How Great Leaders Create Connection in the Age of Isolation to talk about the impact of technology in the workplace and how to make work more human in the age of constant connection. Despite all the technological advance that have made remote work more accessible, and workplace flexibility more common, many of us are less connected to our colleagues and are feeling more isolated at work. And the importance of connection at work is clear - when employees are better connected and have more friends in the workplace they are more engaged, more productive, and more likely to stay with the organization. In the book, Dan shares strategies and approaches to help better connect workers to each other, and how to make sure all workers, especially remote workers are included.
Additionally, Dan shared some findings from research he did for the book, in partnership with Virgin Pulse that gives HR and business leaders insights into how to make workplaces more connected and to create environments where people can thrive both at work and outside of work.
This was a really interesting and fun conversation, thanks so much to Dan for joining the HR Happy Hour Show.
