You will be truly be missed. You have made such an amazing impact on my HR career. - Lindsey

Good range of topics but generalizations annoy me

By RdNailz - Jul 09 2019

I enjoy the podcast, especially the range of topics discussed. Callie does a nice job of keeping the tone conversational. My only criticism is that there are comments that generalize and perpetuate HR stereotypes: Typically HR people don’t like math, HR usually doesn’t learn the business, etc. Maybe I’m being picky, but I don’t see how these statements contribute to the discussion.

Rank #7: Strategic Planning For HR Teams feat. Katie Powers, SHRM-SCP

Podcast cover
Read more

Listen to this episode to get your strategic mindset on.
Strategic planning should be on your radar as an HR professional; if your organization is known for strategic planning, so should your HR department.  You’ll also learn if  there is a secret sauce to setting realistic timelines for HR initiatives. 

Key episode takeaway: “It all goes back to the culture of the organization we work in. If we don't have support from the top down, it's hard for HR to see how strategic planning and HR  are connected.” Interdepartmental relationship management is crucial—keeping up-to-date on other departments and their timelines is essential. No matter how large or small your department is, you can accomplish this without running out of time.

Rank #12: Getting Comfortable with the Uncomfortable When It Comes to Diversity feat. Clint Bradley, SHRM-SCP

Podcast cover
Read more

The talent market has shifted, and people aren't going to get any less diverse. There's no place for the 'if you don't look like me, sound like me, act like me, I'm not going to hire you,' attitudes of yesterday. 

How can HR pros shift their own thinking as well as help their business leaders and people managers leave assumptions and stereotypes at the door, allowing them to get in the headspace to have those conversations? It starts with asking yourself and others, "What is your intent?" 

Grab your beverage of choice and stay a while. We're over here having a conversation on the kinds of conversations that put the human back into human resources


Key episode takeaway: "D & I is a journey. Once you step foot in that journey, you're always going to be on it because you're always going to be learning more about people."

Rank #17: Generations in the Workplace feat. Alexis Fiocchi, SHRM-SCP

Podcast cover
Read more

Listen to this episode because there is an art and science side to addressing age diversity in the workplace. On the one hand, it can hinder your organizational culture if you're too focused on varying generations. The balance is in figuring out what are those differences and how the team/(organization) can benefit from each other and create a positive multi-generational culture. 

What does it look like to allow people to tell their stories and bring their WHOLE SELVES to work; their experiences, past jobs, and way of thinking? How careers shape up is just different now. 

Bust out the pen ladies and gentlemen, it's time to take notes.


Key episode takeaway: "As our workforce continue to change, and as our communities grow, we need to be more open to the way people think, not just how they look and how old they are. Your vibe attracts your tribe. Focus on what it means to work for your company."

Rank #19: Business Case for Diversity & Inclusion feat. Jeremy York, SHRM-SCP

Podcast cover
Read more

Listen to this episode because there's a business case for diversity besides it being the right thing to do. Most of the diversity and inclusion conversations have been solely focused on race and gender. But many aspects of diversity are not as visible. Diversity of thought has to be brought to the forefront. To allow for people to have different perspectives and kinds of experiences that can be shared at work. While an organization can value diversity, it doesn't necessarily make it an inclusive one. Inclusion is about creating workplaces where people can feel comfortable bringing their WHOLE selves to work. 

Leaders and managers are only as strong as the people backing and supporting them. Inclusion is what makes diversity work.

Key episode takeaway: "We've never seen such a diverse amount of people in the labor pool as we see today. Whether it's through a generation standpoint, race, sexual orientation, social-economic status–everyone is different. When organizations can learn to capitalize on diversity, it can help them to get ahead faster."

Read more

On this episode of Honest HR, Callie's guests are HR pros Jon Thurmond and Wendy Dailey, from The HR Social Hour Podcast to discuss networking and communication. People react differently to who you are as a person vs. who you are as a professional. They may be intertwined, but sometimes you resonate more as a person than a professional. Some people connect with puppies and others with comic books. How important—and what does it mean—to define your voice as a professional and as a whole person?

Your brand is your reputation, you can blend your personal and professional interests. You're a person and a person who does HR. 

Key episode takeaway: "You need to be OK with your voice evolving. Who you start out as sharing can be difficult, but when you know where you want to be, and you find what you're comfortable talking about that's when you start to become successful."

Getting Comfortable with the Uncomfortable When It Comes to Diversity feat. Clint Bradley, SHRM-SCP

Podcast cover
Read more

The talent market has shifted, and people aren't going to get any less diverse. There's no place for the 'if you don't look like me, sound like me, act like me, I'm not going to hire you,' attitudes of yesterday. 

How can HR pros shift their own thinking as well as help their business leaders and people managers leave assumptions and stereotypes at the door, allowing them to get in the headspace to have those conversations? It starts with asking yourself and others, "What is your intent?" 

Grab your beverage of choice and stay a while. We're over here having a conversation on the kinds of conversations that put the human back into human resources


Key episode takeaway: "D & I is a journey. Once you step foot in that journey, you're always going to be on it because you're always going to be learning more about people."

Generations in the Workplace feat. Alexis Fiocchi, SHRM-SCP

Podcast cover
Read more

Listen to this episode because there is an art and science side to addressing age diversity in the workplace. On the one hand, it can hinder your organizational culture if you're too focused on varying generations. The balance is in figuring out what are those differences and how the team/(organization) can benefit from each other and create a positive multi-generational culture. 

What does it look like to allow people to tell their stories and bring their WHOLE SELVES to work; their experiences, past jobs, and way of thinking? How careers shape up is just different now. 

Bust out the pen ladies and gentlemen, it's time to take notes.


Key episode takeaway: "As our workforce continue to change, and as our communities grow, we need to be more open to the way people think, not just how they look and how old they are. Your vibe attracts your tribe. Focus on what it means to work for your company."

Business Case for Diversity & Inclusion feat. Jeremy York, SHRM-SCP

Podcast cover
Read more

Listen to this episode because there's a business case for diversity besides it being the right thing to do. Most of the diversity and inclusion conversations have been solely focused on race and gender. But many aspects of diversity are not as visible. Diversity of thought has to be brought to the forefront. To allow for people to have different perspectives and kinds of experiences that can be shared at work. While an organization can value diversity, it doesn't necessarily make it an inclusive one. Inclusion is about creating workplaces where people can feel comfortable bringing their WHOLE selves to work. 

Leaders and managers are only as strong as the people backing and supporting them. Inclusion is what makes diversity work.

Key episode takeaway: "We've never seen such a diverse amount of people in the labor pool as we see today. Whether it's through a generation standpoint, race, sexual orientation, social-economic status–everyone is different. When organizations can learn to capitalize on diversity, it can help them to get ahead faster."

Financial Wellness w/ Mary Feuerbach, SHRM-CP

Podcast cover
Read more

Listen to this episode for out of the box thinking about financial wellness.

According to data from the Federal Reserves, nearly 40% of Americans would struggle to cover a $400 emergency expense. If this is affecting 40% of Americans—it’s affecting your employees and your bottom line! When employees are losing sleep over unexpected expenses, their work is affected. 

Customizing any program to meet every individual need can be difficult. What is your organization doing to help employees navigate financial wellness? 

Think outside the box. Explore unique short-term options alongside longer-term programs. Ensure your employees know about the programs you do provide, and how to access them if they need to. Just because you have a program doesn’t mean your employees know about them! And what they don’t know won’t help.

Key episode takeaway: Push past the administrative hurdles and burdens that may come with providing alternative financial wellness programs—it’s benefits like these that can make the difference between a happy engaged employee and one that is looking to leave.

Listen to this episode because Comp and Ben has its place in HR.
You can't have a one-size fits all approach to benefits in multi-generational workplaces.

And how does it align overall with what organizations are offering in terms of outside and professional development? 

This is an episode you're going to want to share!

Key episode takeaway: "Benefits are a culture-building tool that affects turnover. They have to be viewed holistically."

Strategic Planning For HR Teams feat. Katie Powers, SHRM-SCP

Podcast cover
Read more

Listen to this episode to get your strategic mindset on.
Strategic planning should be on your radar as an HR professional; if your organization is known for strategic planning, so should your HR department.  You’ll also learn if  there is a secret sauce to setting realistic timelines for HR initiatives. 

Key episode takeaway: “It all goes back to the culture of the organization we work in. If we don't have support from the top down, it's hard for HR to see how strategic planning and HR  are connected.” Interdepartmental relationship management is crucial—keeping up-to-date on other departments and their timelines is essential. No matter how large or small your department is, you can accomplish this without running out of time.

Transformation Over Transaction: Using Lean and Six Sigma in HR feat. Robin Chapekis, SHRM-SCP

Podcast cover
Read more

This is the episode to listen to if you want to get the attention of leadership. Using these methodologies HR professionals can show up with numbers and facts and avoid the "I feel like" trap to describe what's happening in the workplace.

Robin describes Lean as reducing known "waste," Six Sigma addresses the unknown causes to reduce variation in processes, etc.

Key episode takeaway: "HR is relying on the excuse that we understand human behavior. We give ourselves the free pass to ignore the data." Can we really say anyone truly understands human behavior?

You will be truly be missed. You have made such an amazing impact on my HR career. - Lindsey

Good range of topics but generalizations annoy me

By RdNailz - Jul 09 2019

I enjoy the podcast, especially the range of topics discussed. Callie does a nice job of keeping the tone conversational. My only criticism is that there are comments that generalize and perpetuate HR stereotypes: Typically HR people don’t like math, HR usually doesn’t learn the business, etc. Maybe I’m being picky, but I don’t see how these statements contribute to the discussion.
