Your company will produce the best business results when it’s learning and talent management processes are top notch. Before development of processes begins, you must know where you stand and which strategies are needed to push maturity forward.

Skillsoft’s research says that the more mature organizations are, the greater the importance, agility, and execution of strategy can be.

Scott also shares the way to overcome barriers to meaningful conversations, and how we must step up the plate.

A CEO's Take on Results-Driven Conversation

July 10, 2017 | Susan Scott

Fifteen years after the launch of her first book, Fierce CEO, and founder Susan Scott has revised Fierce Conversations, which is inspired by more than 10,000 hours of talks with CEOs and senior executives. Fierce conversations, Scott believes, help us achieve success professionally and personally. Different than communication, conversations put the most important issues on the plate, perhaps a problem to solve or a decision to make.

From the first book launch to present, Scott’s seen changes in technology, feedback, performance management and employee engagement.

Culture Of Voice: Speak Now, And Never Hold Your Peace

July 3, 2017 | Rob Bogosian

Dr. Rob Bogosian, founder and principal consultant of RVB Associates, shares how a progressive mindset shift shines new light on speaking up, and how it can influence positive change and improvement in the workplace.

Culture Of Voice: Speak Now, And Never Hold Your Peace

July 3, 2017 | Rob Bogosian

What do General Motors and the Titanic have in common? We won’t give the riddle’s solution away, but we’ll tell you that it has to do with speaking up when you know potential problems lurk. Unfortunately, too many companies operate with a risky ‘Culture of Silence’ – a phenomenon in which employees willfully withhold information. The silence sets companies up for problems, crises and even danger. If people don’t speak up, companies are more susceptible to penalties and violations.

The quick fix? Become a ‘Culture of Voice’ and be open to those employees who want to be heard. Encourage conversations. Reach higher levels of innovation and favorable stats in compliance, safety and operations – all needed to keep your company…ahem, running and staying afloat.

In this podcast featuring Lindsay McGregor and Neel Doshi, learn how to identify mistakes and avoid distractions that hinder performance, and how leaders can create an ideal work culture that incorporates business goals gets employees on board to strive for success.

Neuroscience Makes Employee Engagement Waves, Helps Businesses Land Goals

June 19, 2017 | Lindsay McGregor, Neel Doshi

Neuroscience, which deals with the function of the nervous system and the brain, has certainly become the next big thing in human resources and employee productivity. But don’t worry, if you quite didn’t pay attention in your high school science and chemistry classes, you can still use neuroscience to maximize engagement among your employees.

Basically, neuroscience gives leaders information about various aspects of the workplace and their impacts on the brain. From there, management can use that data to motivate employees and show them that they’re appreciated. 

Neuroscience is making waves in the work world, and illustrating how a new look at incentives and enthusiasm can help businesses reach goals.

Culture drives performance. If leaders can use neuroscience to determine ‘the why’ behind hard work, they can guarantee hard work from their teams.

In this podcast featuring Lindsay McGregor and Neel Doshi, learn how to identify mistakes and avoid distractions that hinder performance, and how leaders can create an ideal work culture that incorporates business goals gets employees on board to strive for success.

Turning Workforce Guesswork into Talent Science Part 1: Getting your Data in Order

In this podcast with ProFinda’s Ant Cousins, learn how to organize a goldmine of people data in order to learn more about employee activities and actions.

Turning Workforce Guesswork into Talent Science Part 1: Getting your Data in Order

June 12, 2017 | Antony Cousins

Harnessing the power of data is a heavily debated topic for the future, but we’ve moved a long way in the last six months. Data from Nov. 2016 showed that of participants asked, 72 percent said capturing data is a priority, and 46 percent said they’re unhappy with the amount of people data in their organization.

Organizations face challenges from not having enough data and employees not providing responses needed. Leaders have to look beyond employee surveys for relevant data. Companies are becoming creative and daring with their use of data internally. New conversations are becoming accepted within companies and ambitious programs can do exciting things with multiple data sources. 

With lack of employee data being such a big problem, we now have new ways of getting data by inference instead of guessing.

In this podcast with ProFinda’s Ant Cousins, learn how to organize a goldmine of people data in order to learn more about employee activities and actions.

Connection Over Compensation: Creating An Engaging Culture For Millennials

May 8, 2017 | Sean Kelly

In this podcast, learn how to enable a connected community within the office, how to connect the dots between connection and high performance, how to hire for empathy rather than competition and bring people closer together – a positive shift in organization performance is sure to prevail.

Connection Over Compensation: Creating An Engaging Culture For Millennials

May 8, 2017 | Sean Kelly

The most important factor in keeping millennials engaged at work is authenticity. They want to be in an atmosphere where they can comfortably be who they actually are and celebrate their unique aspects and abilities. 

As leaders, managers are now tasked with making millennials and all generations feel that being a part of their team is special. Each day they report to work, millennials need to know that their work matters and that they contribute to larger organizational goals. They’ll work harder understanding why objectives are assigned, and how their responsibilities align to the organization’s goals as a whole. The millennial mindset believes what they do today will contribute to who they become tomorrow. It’s the feeling of connection that fires up the millennial workforce. Some people are better connectors than others, but over time, all generations in the office will become more comfortable and benefit from the deep sense of collaboration. 

More than title and compensation, millennials want autonomy, and they value deep social bonds through time with peers and developed relationships. If people understand and embrace their differences rather than control perspectives and foster uniformity, the millennial generation becomes most effective. 

In this podcast, learn how to enable a connected community within the office, how to connect the dots between connection and high performance, how to hire for empathy rather than competition and bring people closer together – a positive shift in organization performance is sure to prevail.

Recruiting For Results: Build Your Recruiter Brand And Do It Right

April 10, 2017 | Matt Charney

Nobody said it was easy. In fact, finding the right talent, for the right roles at the right time can be quite the task. But we must start somewhere – trust. Matt Charney, Editor-in-Chief of Recruiting Daily knows that recruiters don’t have the best reputation and often get little respect. On June 27, he’ll share his presentation, “Building your Recruiter Brand,” at HCI’s Strategic Talent Acquisition Conference in Boston.

When candidates begin their job hunt, they’ve certainly got their eyes peeled in an attempt to weed out bad experiences, aggressive recruiters and wasted time. With the right recruitment brand, the information provided to top talent comes from a credible source. Perhaps that source is a subject matter expert within the company – someone who can supply honest career knowledge and add value to the candidate experience. Creating confidence among top talent allows great recruiters to focus on providing a platform for folks who actually do the job.

Join us for this podcast to learn how recruiting leaders can re-establish a good rapport, make hiring an easier process and create a credible recruiter brand.

New Performance Management Approach Starts By Setting The Right Pace

March 13, 2017 | Anna Tavis

So you want organizational change, and you want it now?  
Watch your speed as you push pedal to medal – leading your organization through a performance management revolution is best done at a rush hour rate, with possible traffic jams along the way. Dr. Anna Tavis is the Clinical Associate Professor of Leadership and Human Capital Management at New York University, and is on deck to share her presentation, “Cultural Due Diligence Prior to Your Performance Management Revolution” at HCI’s 2017 Performance Management Innovation Conference. 

Tavis says leaders must first know where their organizations stand with goals. What fulfillment strategies do you need to change? As leaders move through a cultural discovery process within their organization, they should expect the unexpected. “Focus on data evidence,” Tavis says. “Performance management comes from the essence of what strategies the business is all about.”

So at what speed should performance management change travel? That rate shouldn’t be underestimated, and leaders must have the courage to practice the new agendas, according to Tavis. While the revolution won’t happen by winning a race, urgency during transition demands fast movement, with careful attention to the road. Listen to the above podcast to learn which steps to take during a successful process of a performance management revolution.

What Mountains Will Your Employees Climb This Year?

March 6, 2017 | Chris Mason

A new performance management system is taking employee productivity to new heights.  The regenerative system involves continuous communication and better alignment between management and employees. 

"Performance management system calibrates around rewards and bonuses,” says Chris Mason, Head of Talent Management/Learning and Development, Compensation, & Workforce Analytics at Patagonia. “From the beginning of the year, it drives an agile mindset.” Quarterly meetings with employees allows for input, thoughts and guidance. Managers can better reflect on the employee’s ability to accomplish goals and how much they’ve contributed.  The need for a performance management review schedule still stands, Mason says, because it’s meaningful for a business schedule and flows into individual contribution during the year.  “Short term goals and continuous feedback are needed, too,” he says.

Listen to this podcast to learn more about evolving a performance management structure and how to make changes work. Chris Mason’s ‘Compensation Innovation in a Ratingless World’ keynote presentation is scheduled for the 2017 Performance Management Innovation conference in Chicago.

Asia On Track to Achieve Sustainable Diversity and Inclusion Programs

February 21, 2017 | Florence Chan

Companies in Asia are coming together to learn the best practices of workplace diversity and inclusion, and to drive positive change for organizational culture. By raising awareness of key diversity and inclusion tools and efforts, companies can bring desired change to the heart of their work, Florence Chan tells HCI.

Chan is a senior manager for knowledge and development at Community Business and is set to speak at HCI’s 2017 Inclusive Diversity Conference.  Research of diversity and inclusion is relatively new in Asia, according to Chan. “The pickup is slow, but gradual in Asia’s business sectors,” Chan says. “The term is not understood and doesn’t resonate easily.”

In this podcast, she examines why companies should celebrate differences and individuality among various cultures, learn about key drivers of diversity and inclusion strategy, and make their teams more in tune with Asia’s local market.
