I’ve tried to pick up some tips from this show but have found it frustrating. There is a lot of unnecessary chatter. I listened to a 38 minute episode about the corona virus and 22 minutes in, only one real tip. Otherwise it was just the two hosts having the same conversation I’ve been having with my team. This has been my experience with the podcast overall. I tune in and wait and wait and wait, but don’t get much for the time I’ve invested.

Great Show!

Host: Ben Eubanks

Guest: Madeline Laurano, Co-Founder, Aptitude Research Partners

Sourcing isn't a new activity in the talent acquisition world. There have always been hard to fill jobs, but we're seeing more of this kind of issue than ever before. In fact, a recent CareerBuilder study puts the cost of open positions at nearly $800,000 annually, tallying up costs that include lost productivity, low employee morale, and higher turnover due to burnout. In addition, one Lighthouse Research study of talent acquisition priorities pegs sourcing as the number one area that business leaders plan to focus on in the coming year.

In this episode of We're Only Human, host Ben Eubanks is joined by Madeline Laurano, co-founder of Aptitude Research and co-host of Research on the Rocks, another HR Happy Hour network show. She and Ben discuss some of the key aspects of sourcing, such as employment branding, recruitment marketing, and technology's role in the process.

In addition, they examine the impact of AI, machines, and algorithms on the sourcing world, breaking down some of the hype and illuminating an amazing competition that exemplifies that to get the best results, we need humans and machines working together. Get all this and more in the latest episode of We're Only Human on the HR Happy Hour podcast network.

We're Only Human 24 - The Best Team Wins with Engagement and Performance

Host: Ben Eubanks

Guests: Chester Elton, Adrian Gostick

What does it take to win as a team? How do we encourage each of our people to deliver the best performance without taking a bland "peanut butter spread" approach to management? Is there a secret to what high-performing teams do differently from the rest? 

In this episode of We're Only Human, Ben speaks with authors Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton about their new book The Best Team Wins. Gostick and Elton have authored numerous books on team performance, motivation, and culture, and they are globally recognized experts in the field.

The discussion focuses on everything from collaboration technologies, to how to manage individuals in a way that drives engagement. In fact, the discussion even delves into micromanagement and the times that employees actually crave the attention of a micromanaging leader in their careers even if not in their daily work tasks. 

Finally, the conversation wraps up by exploring concepts such as rapid onboarding of new hires to get them to full productivity, how one company pays new employees to NOT work in their jobs for the first 90 days, and the secret to how a NASA mission commander was able to lead a highly motivated and engaged team for months in close quarters without suffering a single dispute or issue among the team. You can learn more about Adrian and Chester here.

HR Happy Hour 319 - Understanding Artificial Intelligence for Business and HR

Sponsored by Virgin Pulse - www.virginpulse.com

Host: Steve Boese

Guest: Joshua Gans, University of Toronto

This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve is joined by Joshua Gans, Professor of Strategic Management at the University of Toronto, and co-author of the new book, Prediction Machines: The Simple Economics of Artificial Intelligence.

On the show, Joshua gives his easy to grasp definition of Artificial Intelligence, how AI is really about lowering the costs of and increasing the availability and ability to create more predictions about outcomes. These outcomes could be about predicting tomorrow's weather, teaching a self-driving car how to react to changing conditions, or even helping HR and Talent leaders predict who might be the best candidate for a job, or who might be a better fit on the team.

Joshua breaks down how HR and business leaders should think about AI, how and where to see and understand its impact on business, the need for human judgment, and how to assess and be aware of the hidden dangers and potential biases in AI technology. This was the most lively and engaging (and accessible) conversation about AI I have ever had, and I think any HR or business leader will appreciate the easy, casual way Joshua explains complex topics.

We also talked 'War Games', (the movie), Moneyball, the pain of teaching a teenager how to drive.
