Making Buildings “Hackable”

Future of Work

It has often been said that the most sustainable building is the one that doesn't get built. I am delighted to see that the architectural community is beginning to pay attention to that idea.

Employee Engagement: Failing Managers

David Zinger

How are you managing employee engagement for managers? On a recent flight from Winnipeg to Toronto I refreshed my previous reading and notes of Henry Mintzberg’s 2009 book, Managing. He is truly a Canadian and global treasure in management thinking. Over the past 4 or 5 years there has been a big uptake on helping managers improve employee engagement.

Designing Equitable Performance: How to Create Fair, Inclusive Assessments

Speaker: Aubrey Blanche & Sahra Kaboli-Nejad

We are all susceptible to bias and strive to mitigate it through reading, taking classes, and participating in trainings - yet, it seems like these aren’t driving the change we need. Women tend to receive vague, personality-based feedback, where men tend to receive performance related feedback. Work completed by Black men is more likely to be rated as lower quality than White men. And Black women face these overlapping biases in even more extreme ways. So what can we do to address the inequities in the system? Look at the system itself - are we designing an equitable performance system that benefits everyone? Join Culture Amp’s Global Head of Equitable Design and Impact, Aubrey Blanche, along with Diversity, Equity, and Belonging Lead Sahra Kaboli-Nejad, to discuss how we can re-evaluate our performance management systems. We will discuss the benefits of designing a system at every level (individual, manager, and organization) to help mitigate bias and ultimately create a system that finally succeeds at what it is supposed to do - improve performance.

Say "Seat At The Table," Pay @shrmfoundation $100

True Faith HR

As I have written several times on this blog and elsewhere , I appreciate the SHRM Foundation. Their products and work are outstanding.

Project Management: Science? Art? Common Sense?


I recently heard someone saying, “ Project management is just science. ” “Do I agree?” I asked myself. Here is what I think: Project management is both science and art, but it is the art of project management that makes great project managers.

Employee Engagement Friday Factoid #11: Meaning more than Money

David Zinger

Motivation: Money, Meaning or Recognition. Doing something meaningful is more important than money or recognition to your employees. 29% of respondents said that doing something meaningful was the most motivating thing about work. Money motivated 25%, and recognition 17%. Commentary. Although meaning trumped money it is probably best to hedge our bets by attending to the meaning, money, and recognition at work.
