The content is so good, but the intro and outro regularly deafen me. Interview audio can also sound much more like a starting podcast than an industry leader that’s been around for years. It really makes it very difficult to listen to and learn from.

Great Show!

HR Happy Hour 366 - The Future of HR in 2019

Host: Steve Boese

Guest: Mike DiClaudio, Principal, Advisory, KPMG

This week on  the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve was joined by Mike DiClaudio, Principal, Advisory at KPMG to talk about some of the findings from KPMG's recent 'Future of HR 2019' survey and report.

On the show, Mike talked about some of key findings of the research, particularly in the areas of HR and organizational digital transformation intention and efforts. From Intelligent Automation, from both a business and HR perspective, which has emerged as an increased focus area for the CHRO, to better understanding the disconnect between the CEO and the CHRO as to the value of automation, to the segmentation of employees and groups for the purposes of creating different and personalized experiences in the workplace, the research offers plenty for HR leaders to consider and introduce in their organizations.

This was a fun and interesting conversation, thanks very much to Mike for joining us.

This week on the show, recorded live in San Francisco on site at Greenhouse Open, the customer event for recruiting technology provider Greenhouse, Steve sat down with Greenhouse Co-founder and CEO Daniel Chait to talk about how companies can become great at recruiting and how modern recruiting technology can help them achieve this goal.

Turns out, at least some of the process changes that companies can implement, like going into candidate interviews with a structured plan, or making sure you understand which are the key elements or attributes that are likely to make a candidate successful can elevate an organization's recruiting function into the top 10%.

Additionally, Dan and Steve talked about the market for recruitment technology, why it might be so crowded with solution providers, and why most recruitment technology providers have made a mistake by trying to make recruiting simple and somehow 'not core' to the business. Dan and Greenhouse feel that recruiting is hard, important, and are creating tools to make organizations successful at these tough challenges.

Jason talks about the importance and power of leveraging actual employees and what they actually think and believe and aspire to in creating, communicating, and executing the brand promises and delighting customers.

Additionally, Trish and Steve lamented the sorry state of Email in the workplace, (it is NEVER going to die), and Jason shared why he wears the same black H&M shirt everywhere he goes.

This week on the HR Happy Hour Show recorded live at the Health & Benefits Leadership Conference, Steve Boese is joined by Jen Bailey from Tuition.IO, the leading employer funded student loan contribution platform to talk about employee student loan debt, and the opportunity for HR and organizations to offer student loan repayment contributions as an employee benefit.

In the US, student loans are at record levels, and more and more employees are entering the workforce with stunning debt levels that they have to pay down. Some progressive employers have turned to student loan repayment contributions to help employees better manage their debts, while also serving as a powerful talent retention and attraction tool. A recent study reported that 86% of employees would remain at an employer for 5 years if student loan repayment contributions were offered as a benefit.

Jen talked about how the platform works, how an employer evaluates their options in setting up a student loan repayment contribution, and the ROI that employers are seeing from implementing these student loan repayment benefit programs.

This was a super interesting discussion about a very important topic for HR and Benefits leaders, as well as society overall.
