The Tim Sackett Project

Hey, last week I was at WorkHuman powered by Globoforce and they had a new product launch that kind of left many in the audience in tears!

They want to be the same person at work as they are at home.

8 Reasons Employee Well-Being Must Be Self-Managing

HR Bartender

One of the things that I took away from this year’s WorkHuman conference hosted by Globoforce is that well-being must be employee centric. Organizations cannot mandate well-being. They do need to create the environment for well-being to thrive, then let employees embrace it. That being said, there are a few specific things organizations should consider when it comes to supporting employee well-being. Well-being and wellness are two different things.

With Globoforce on Social Recognition

Strategic HCM

I’ve just been attending an event with Globoforce and the Conference Board on social recognition. I’ve been a long supporter of Globoforce’s work on recognition, eg this webinar we did together, and also my support for their book – see this endorsement (which I still support) printed at the start of this: “Recognition is a hugely underused and badly misused HR and management tools. Globoforce’s Mood Tracker suggests that ‘only’ 38% of (N American?)

The Woodstock For HR

China Gorman

With well over 1,700 attendees and almost no corporate sponsors (except for the organizer, Globoforce ), the focus was on engaging, useful, envelope-edge pushing content and nurturing/inspiring attendee experiences. Described as “the Woodstock for HR” by Globoforce CEO, Eric Mosely, WorkHuman isn’t our parents’ HR conference. The people who attend become “blocks” that need to be moved around, That hasn’t happened at WorkHuman. They were front and center at all times.

I’m Not Your Mother!

China Gorman

The more I could remove obstacles from their ability to do good work, the more I could offer development and thanks for a job well done, the better they performed. Treat people well and they’ll treat your employees well. But as I matured as a leader, I did begin to wonder about this notion of working to create happiness at work. I spent some time at Zappos – a culture whose leader is all about making his workforce happy. Some things are simple.

Millennials To Business: You’re Doing It Wrong!

China Gorman

And I am generally wary of survey analyses that play up differences between the generations in the workplace because my go-to research from the Great Place to Work® Institute shows that – in the workplace, at least – every person, regardless of generation, wants 3 things: Resepct – including appreciation and fairness. Today’s Millennials place less value on visible (19%), well-networked (17%), and technically-skilled (17%) leaders.

Top 5 Themes at HR Tech 2017


Indeed, the theme at the 20 th edition of the conference was about celebrating humanity, putting people – our employees – center stage in an era when technology innovations continue to accelerate at a rapid pace. The latency of artificial intelligence is the distance between what the machine thinks is real and what’s real,” said John Sumser , principal analyst at consulting firm HRExaminer. The importance of inclusion and belonging has never been more at the forefront.

The ROI of Working Human

China Gorman

This EPG, sponsored by Globoforce , brings a great deal of data and analysis into one easily read report. In other words, it’s chock full of validated research and data on a topic that is becoming top of mind for CEOs, boards, and all C-Suite members: the connection between employee well-being and business success. Boost Employee Well-Being. At its heart, however, humanity-focused workplaces start at the top.

Do Employees Give Leaders Points For Trying?

China Gorman

It was published by the WorkHuman Research Institute at Globoforce , the social recognition solutions company. Recognition and a human workplace are drivers of employee well-being and happiness. The “best friend at work” syndrome. I’ve long believed that trustworthy, authentic and approachable leaders – at every level – can overcome most any cultural issue – with trustworthiness being the key.

5 Ways to Avoid Job Burnout

HR Ringleader

That alone is enough to keep me up at night. Well, when you work for yourself, you are suddenly plunged into not having enough hours in the day. For example, Globoforce is doing great things to bridge that gap for companies and employees. I buy into this whole idea of making work “More Human” and as I’ve followed Globoforce and their efforts in this arena, it really makes sense. Now that it’s just me at work, you’d think I have no hope.

Hanging By A Thread- How to Make Your Workplace More Human

HR Ringleader

Well, it’s the kind of place where you are recognized and validated. You see, many organizations today think that they are doing something special by giving recognition, if they do it at all.

Did you know that you’re only connected to your employer by the weakest link? Think about it.

I’m Not Your Mother!

I was reminded of it at the WorkHuman conference earlier this month. The more I could remove obstacles from their ability to do good work, the more I could offer development and thanks for a job well done, the better they performed. Treat people well and they’ll treat your employees well. But as I matured as a leader, I did begin to wonder about this notion of working to create happiness at work. This is a popular post from a year ago.

Ideas of How to #WorkHuman Today

HR Ringleader

I had a great time leading a webinar earlier in the week with Globoforce. Well, I hope I provided many examples that HR leaders (and other leaders) can use to make small strides in this area. For years, we’ve all been brainwashed that we need to leave all our troubles at the door when we come to work. Well, no more! Freshbooks is a Toronto-based company that has instituted voluntary “employee dating” at work.

Putting the Human Back in HR….and Our Workplaces #WorkHuman

Women of HR

I’ve noticed for some time now, at least amongst some HR professionals, and in some pockets of conversation within the HR world, that there has been a fair amount of discussion about the need to put the “human” back in human resources. Not so much implying that we’ve all become robots or total slaves to technology (at least not yet!), If you’re interested in learning more about building more human workplaces, join us in Orlando in May at WorkHuman 2016.

Having Fun at Work? Really.


Companies that encourage fun at work, as well as in work, are well positioned to succeed. Gary Hamel, a speaker at this year’s WorkHuman , phrased it much better than I in a recent interview with Globoforce: “After all, as human beings we wash the dishes, do the laundry, and take out the garbage—pretty mundane stuff. might say, allow people to be more creative, develop new relationships, and come at a problem with a new perspective. by Derek Irvine.

Can a Manager Praise Employees Too Much [poll]

HR Bartender

During this year’s WorkHuman Conference hosted by Globoforce , keynote speaker Shawn Achor made the comment that employees never get tired of praise. At first, I totally agreed. Especially when you hear statistics like the ones from the WorkHuman Research Institute that found 21 percent of respondents have never been recognized at work and 33 percent haven’t been recognized in 6 months. At that point, doesn’t it come down to what employees are being recognized for?

10 Ways To Improve Your Business Travel Experience

HR Bartender

After last year’s WorkHuman conference hosted by Globoforce , I decided to keep track of how many days I spent away from home on business travel. I believe that part of what makes travel enjoyable is having a balance between the feeling of being at home and the adventure of being in a new city. Ever since I switched from coffee to tea, I’m amazed at the lack of a quality tea selection in hotels. At home, I have shampoo, conditioner, lotions, etc.

Nothing but our own fear

Steve Boese

I was at the Globoforce WorkHuman Conference earlier in the week, and one of the more interesting aspects of this conference from the many that I attend in the course of the year is Globoforce's willingness to showcase speakers and topics that are not necessarily 'on the nose' with their specific set of technologies and solutions. What can make, or should make work more 'human' is at the same time a simple and kind of complex topic, (and not the same for everyone).

Why Friends at Work Matter

Compensation Cafe

Several studies have hit the blogosphere in recent months on the importance of friends at work. It seems a “soft” topic, yet it’s friendships and deep relationships at work that drive key business factors – productivity, retention and wellness. And lately we’ve been hearing Millennials leave at an exceptionally high rate. The research also found Millennials to be much more likely to share personal details with friends at work. Wellness.

The Manager’s Role in Building Morale at Work


Managers should be intentional with communications and recognition if they’re committed to building morale at work. Managers may be confident in their capability for building morale at work, but this confidence isn’t exactly reflected in employee attitudes. To close the gap and successfully motivate employees, managers must focus on building morale at work through the strongest methods available: communication and recognition.

Does Drama at Work Cost the Average Worker 2.5 Hours Per Day? #workhuman

The HR Capitalist

Capitalist Note : I'm spending the first couple of days of this week at WorkHuman in Austin. Put on by Globoforce, WorkHuman is the most progressive HR Conference available, with past shows focused on emerging trends like mindfulness, meditation and more - the leading edge of people practices and how HR can build them.

All Anonymous Feedback Isn’t Negative

HR Bartender

One of the speakers during this year’s WorkHuman Conference , hosted by Globoforce, made the comment that all anonymous feedback is negative. At first, I wanted to completely agree but then it occurred to me that’s not really the case. I’m referring to situations that aren’t at a whistleblower level but they still need to be addressed. While we might wish they would, sometimes it’s better to get anonymous feedback than no feedback at all.

#WorkHuman, Meditating At Work (With Good Posture) and Thinking About Holacracy.

The HR Capitalist

I was at the WorkHuman conference put on by Globoforce this week. If you don't know Globoforce, they are a engagement, recognition and rewards company that likes to go big. Globoforce converted me out of that a bit at the conference. Then a comment came from the audience that I'll paraphrase as this: "You know, one of the problems I've having at my company is that I don't want to make my meditation sessions mandatory.". There's running groups at dawn.
