60: Ep 060 - Employee Visibility in a Hybrid Work Environment
2 giorni fa
11:55As the world continues to adapt to the changes brought about by the pandemic, hybrid work has emerged as a popular model for organizations looking to balance the benefits of remote work with the advantages of in-person collaboration. Hybrid work involves a combination of remote and in-office work, which presents unique challenges for maintaining employee visibility. Now, for those unfamiliar with the term, it might seem like yet another confusing new phrase, but it’s really just what it sounds like the visibility of an employee in the workplace. That said, we live in a time of flux. So, the definition of employee visibility continues to evolve and be redefined, thanks to remote and hybrid workplace models – by that, I mean in terms of employees being recognized and feeling included in relevant organizational initiatives and decisions.
59: Ep 059 - HR Burnout: What it Is and How You Can Deal with It.
9:01The stress of the pandemic took a toll on employee health around the world, and that stress hit HR departments and personnel perhaps twice as hard. From coordinating large-scale digitalization and ensuring the well-being of colleagues to being the bearers of bad news for employees who were laid off, HR staff have had to manage several workplace transformations. We’ve all used and heard the term "unprecedented" to the point of annoyance now, but it really is the truth of the last 2-3 years that HR personnel have had to demonstrate unusual resilience during an unprecedented time. Those wins may have come at some cost, though: the travails of the recent past have, cumulatively, led to burnout among HR folks.

58: Ep 058 - AI-powered HR analytics
9:05Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a powerful tool for HR departments. It enables organizations to draw insights from large amounts of data, offering more precise and accurate analyses. It can also be used to automate tasks such as screening resumes and candidate evaluations. This can speed up the hiring process and reduce costs. Additionally, AI can be used to customize onboarding processes, develop more useful training strategies, and improve employee retention. It can also be useful in analyze employee performance, identifying areas of improvement, and helping Human Resource departments make better decisions for the growth of the company, thereby ensuring it becomes more efficient and stays ahead of the competition.
57: Ep 057 - Why Workplace Optimism is Important and How to Cultivate It
6:58When we think of a workplace, what does it usually conjure up? Probably images of cubicles and long rows of desks, right? These days, especially in the wake of the pandemic, people are wary of offices and workplaces that can be impersonal and tedious. There’s an all-encompassing fatigue with selfishness and indifference that pervades most public spaces. A workplace perceived as cold and unfeeling is now viewed unfavorably, and Gen Z, more than any other, is skeptical about jobs that require them to “just hunker down and work.” Optimism is the mantra in 2022, and it will continue to be so in 2023, and beyond. An important research study by Forbes indicated that optimistic people are “103% more inspired to give their best effort at work.” There are many ways you can create an optimistic workplace, from having fun activities to creating a supportive culture. These tips will help you create a more positive environment for your team and increase productivity as well.
56: Ep 056 - 4 Steps to Integrate Diverse Perspectives in the Workplace
7:52Diverse perspectives and opinions can be very valuable in a workplace. People from different backgrounds, experiences, and viewpoints bring different points of view that can help organizations become more inclusive. However, they also present challenges because it takes time to get used to new ways of thinking and interacting. A culture that welcomes diverse ideas and challenges individual preconceptions is what we have in mind when we picture an inclusive workplace. It's a place where employees feel comfortable bringing up issues that might not seem important at first glance. When you integrate different perspectives in an organization, you create a culture of collective intelligence that leads to better decisions and outcomes for everyone involved.
55: Ep 055 - Strategies for Hybrid Work
7:45The rapid digital transformation of modern organizations means that the definition of a traditional workplace is quickly morphing into a hybrid office environment. This shift entails incorporating new technologies, team-based operating models, and collaborative workspaces with the aim of improving how employees work, collaborate, and communicate. Here are a few steps you can take to help your staff adapt smoothly to this change and succeed in a hybrid workplace.
54: Ep 054 - Emotional And Diversity Intelligence Are Inseparable
8:14Emotional intelligence is one of the most important skills in modern workplaces. It first went mainstream in the mid-1990s, when Daniel Goleman’s book Emotional Intelligence became a bestseller. Goleman defines emotional intelligence, also known as EI or EQ, as “a person's ability to manage his feelings so that those feelings are expressed appropriately and effectively.” It is another kind of brain power, which, rather than helping solve puzzles, helps us regulate our emotions and understand others. Goleman claims that emotional intelligence is the largest single predictor of success in the workplace.
53: Ep 053 - How To Challenge Employees to Perform Outside Their Comfort Zones.
8:53A Comfort Zone is one of those things we never really know we have when we’re actually in it. Most of us are too busy rushing from task to task, doing our jobs, or fixing loose ends to notice that we fall into a habit more rapidly than expected. Before we know it, our consistent routine becomes a comfort zone, and we remain stuck in it long after the routine has outlived its utility. It’s only when some type of jolt happens, or a catastrophe strikes, that we realize we had stayed within our comfort zones for too long, avoiding or shrinking from exciting opportunities and challenges that showed up. Preempting such outcomes in the workplace is one of the top priorities of senior management, team leads, and managers. Let’s look at a few simple and effective changes that managers can make to help employees perform outside their comfort zones.
52: Ep 052 - What’s the better option: Resign Or Be Fired?
6:33We’ve been facing some rough weather economically for a while now. The pandemic led to layoffs, or retrenchments as some parts of part of the world call it, resignations in large numbers, and companies that struggled with remote work or saw a drop in revenues downsized dramatically. It has led to a persistent doubt in everyone’s mind: is my job safe? Will I be fired? Or should I just quit and move on? Many of us have faced such a situation or seen people close to us struggle with it. Even in more conventional scenarios, is it better to wait to be asked to leave, or just go ahead and quit? This is a sensitive subject, of course, and not an easy question to answer. There are two schools of thought on this subject, which, for various reasons, make fairly convincing arguments.
51: Ep 051 - Why Embracing Conflict is Professionally & Personally Beneficial
8:13Conflict. Hearing this word in a professional context gives us pause, doesn’t it? None of us wants unpleasantness at work, and yet we have all been guilty, at one point or another, of avoiding confrontations or stressful interactions in order to steer clear of conflict. But that is precisely the reason we must address the subject. The conflict between colleagues can lead to massive loss of time & energy, lead to individual (or even team-wide) procrastination, damage work culture, negatively affect results, and even spiral into outright bitter litigation and lifelong enmities. We won’t get into too many platitudes about peace and conflict resolution in this podcast. Well, maybe just one: Former US President Ronald Reagan once said, "Peace is not the absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means." That gentleman did know a thing or two about conflict resolution in the political sphere, but he may have been onto something more all-encompassing there. The ability to handle conflict is a hard-won skill and must be wielded firmly yet with subtlety and deftness. In this podcast, we’ll look at 3 ways you can do that at your workplace, and the benefits that accrue from such choices.
