How a Little Flexibility Can Help Fix the Gender Pay Gap

Cornerstone On Demand

“Eighty percent of companies say they offer flexibility, but it's a black market topic. You raise it [as an employee] and you're not taken seriously," Annie Dean, former attorney and current entrepreneur, told the New York Times last month. Dean founded Werk , a company dedicated to helping people find flexible work schedules. And while there aren't solid numbers to back up Dean's statement, it rings true to many of us.

5 Tips to Help HR Beat the Talent Shortage in 2017

Brazen HR

If you were working in HR and recruiting during 2016, you probably felt the pinch of the talent shortage. That makes it hard to believe that we were in the midst of a recession just a few years ago, when employees were considerably easier to hire. Now we’ve got the lowest number of jobless claims in the U.S. since 1973 , along with the most job postings going unfilled in U.S. history and the lowest unemployment rate in 10 years.

3 Examples of Evidence-Based HR in Action

UpstartHR

Last week I had the pleasure of presenting a workshop based on metrics, evidence-based HR, and change management. The session was a lot of fun, because we were able to tie the three topics together in a variety of ways to help reiterate not only why each of them matters, but how each of them can really build value when used in conjunction with one another. HR is often using anecdotal information (if any at all), conjecture, and pure hope to make decisions, but we can do better.

How Businesses are Managing the New Reality of Work: A Paycor Survey

We wanted to know how COVID-19 impacted businesses and their workforces. Did they need government funds? How many workers did they layoff or furlough? Are employees working from home now? How’s team morale? And perhaps most importantly, what are their plans for the future? This guide offers a pretty good idea of how business leaders are feeling, what keeps them up at night, and what approaches they’re taking to solve problems. Download the guide to see all the survey results and where your organization might stand comparatively.

Don’t Tell Employees Why the Company Culture is Great

HR Bartender

One of the core topics in any orientation and onboarding program is company culture. We want candidates to see the company culture before they apply and during the hiring process so they know they’re a good fit. And we want them to fully immerse in the culture once they arrive. And I use the word “immerse” because some organizations are taking the challenge literally and creating cultural immersion programs.

Three Steps to Make Learning Last

Cornerstone On Demand

I think it’s fair to say we all want our learning to last. I think we call it ‘sticky’. We spend many hours reading, watching videos or in training classes, we want to see our efforts (and our expense) pay off. From a corporate perspective, CEB, a research firm, reports that sales representatives are forgetting 70 percent of the content that they receive in one week , and 90 percent in one month. That’s from the learner side of the equation.

Employee Coaching Is a Form of Accountability

HR Bartender

I ran across this image the other day from last year’s HR Technology Conference. It reminded me of the times when an employee has said to me, “My manager is out to get me.”. In fact, I was conducting a training session with a group of managers recently and someone asked about having HR in the room when managers are coaching employees. My thought on this is “No, HR should not be in the room” when a manager is coaching an employee. Maybe if a manager is disciplining an employee. But not coaching.

Making Company Culture a Priority – Even If Your Team Is Always on the Road. In 2015 alone, employees around in the United States took 488 million business trips , spending $302 billion.

Mission Critical: Leveraging Learning Engineering to Drive Digital Transformation

Speaker: Trish Uhl, Founder of Owl's Ledge LLC and the Talent & Learning Analytics Leadership Forum

Digital is disrupting every part of an organization's value chain at a record pace, creating a critical need to transform operations and employees' ways of working.

Trish Uhl show you how to start leveraging Learning Engineering, a multidisciplinary approach that combines modern technology, data analytics, decision science, learning sciences and change management with human-centered engineering design methodologies to ultimately deliver targeted learning outcomes and business results that keep pace with the business and merge learning into the flow of work and lead Digital Adoption.

Why You Should Keep Track of Company Joy

On a scale from 1 – 10, how much pain are you in? It has always been a rather perplexing question, and one almost impossible to answer objectively. Pain is subjective; that’s the challenge in measuring it discretely–and, by extension, using pain as a core measure of performance and health. Communicating pain, and about pain, is rife with difficulty because everyone has a different baseline and scale of tolerance for it. It is universal, yet divisively personal.
