Complaints are an unfortunate but inevitable part of working in human resources. But not all employers know how to handle complaints and investigations into those complaints, and unprofessional or callous complaint processes can sour any workplace.

Rank #3: HR Trends to Watch for in 2018

Podcast cover
Read more

In 2017, human resources had a heavy focus on compliance. This is typical in an inauguration year; a new administration in the White House usually brings with it changes to the tax code and other rules related to employment. While we’ll continue to see some of these changes rolled out in 2018, most will be done at the state level—like Oregon’s Equal Pay Act and changes to overtime and sick leave regulations.

But in addition to continued changes at the legislative level, we need to look ahead to adapting HR practices to reflect the workforce in 2018. In this week’s episode, Angela Perkins, Xenium HR’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing, joins us to talk about the five trends businesses need to anticipate in 2018: the skill gap, employee experience, flex and remote work, technology, and data. We’ll cover the particular challenges each of these areas pose and how to tackle them in the context of our current job market.

Rank #18: Amy Edmondson on Creating Better Organizations by Building Psychological Safety in the Workplace

Podcast cover
Read more

“Psychological safety is a belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns or mistakes.” ⁠— Amy Edmondson

Have you ever had a question you’ve been dying to ask in a meeting but couldn’t because when you look around, everyone is simply nodding their heads, agreeing to everything the boss says? 

No one wants to look incompetent or ignorant, especially at work. We prefer to look smart, helpful, and that we go everything covered. To avoid being labeled as ignorant or incompetent, people choose not to ask questions or admit to their mistakes. 

Sadly, innovations are delayed, and great ideas don’t come to light every time this happens. 

In this episode, Amy Edmondson will be joining me to discuss her book, The Fearless Organization: Creating psychological safety in the workplace for learning, innovation, and growth. We talk about how organizations go wrong because people lack psychological safety and never speak up due to the fear that they might never get that promotion or worse lose their job. 

Giveaway! Fearless Organization is an incredible book and I’ll be giving away 3 books to the first 3 who tweets out this podcast highlighting Amy’s work with the hashtag #fearlessorganization and tags @worktransformed @AmyCEdmondson @brandonlaws

Example Tweet: 

I loved the @worktransformed podcast with @AmyCEdmondson and host @brandonlaws discussing the #fearlessorganization. Listen here: http://bit.ly/2Fz4kCb

In this episode, you will learn about:

  • Amy’s thoughts on her book Teaming and why she wrote it
  • What is psychological safety and why is it vital in the workplace
  • Why teams are more effective in a psychologically stable workplace
  • The lack of psychological safety in a hospital setting
  • Why better teams have higher error rates
  • Open communication transparency
  • What went wrong with Volkswagen and Wells Fargo and how could such incident be avoided
  • How dangerous fear at work is
  • Nokia and their challenges being in a competitive environment
  • How to build psychological safety in the workplace
  • What makes up a really good question
