The modern world of work is one dominated by change, and so organizations must be ready to upskill and reskill employees to meet evolving demands. At a larger level, leaders, too, need to learn and adapt in order to thrive. Organizational learning reflects the ability to create knowledge, to transfer it, and subsequently to modify behaviors based on the insights gained.
Communities of Practice (CoPs) are an effective tool used to prepare employees with individual learning, and at the same time, bridge the gap between individual knowledge and organizational learning.
Remote work is tricky. Common concerns I hear from leaders include: Are people really working? Are they getting the support they need? Are the teams collaborating as they should?
These questions may be considered “old school” and stodgy, but we have technology and the 24/7 nature of work, which require us to work remotely anyway.
These questions are much deeper and reach us on a cultural level.
Sixty-one million strong in the U.S. alone, Generation Z will comprise 30% of the workforce by 2030. They are more diverse, more educated, and more technologically adept than any previous generation. Entrepreneurial, pragmatic, and increasingly dedicated to work that matters, GenZ will drive transformation--at your organization and across the workplace. Finding new ways to engage this emerging cohort will be critical to the success of your organization.
More than ever, Artificial Intelligence (AI), big data and predictive analytics are fundamentally changing the world of work. And new tech-driven innovations — like using voice commands to trade shifts or requesting earnings instantly between pay periods — are set to change the game altogether. With so many technological developments transforming everything we do, what does it all mean for HR departments?
There’s an approach to making business better that many managers fail to take: paying attention to the lives of their employees.
Not just their employees; but what’s actually happening in their lives, what they value most, what struggles they’re facing, and what big stressors they deal with outside of work.
The key to enabling innovation and high performance in teams is not finding the perfect mix of personalities and capabilities or implementing the ultimate process. It requires a foundation of psychological safety: The belief, shared by team members, that they are safe to take risks, make mistakes, and express themselves openly without jeopardizing their feelings, jobs, reputations, or positions. It also doesn't cost a thing.
Technology and the promise it has for HR teams is exciting, but it’s something that requires due diligence in selecting the right system and then seeing the project all the way through proper onboarding for it to pay off.
Attracting and retaining top talent is a game of finders, keepers. First, you need to find the talent. Then you need to keep them. This is especially important in today’s competitive landscape, because your competition is coming after your best employees. Not to mention, your employees have more choices where to go.
Imagine where your business would be if you could improve your retention rate by 82%.
Turnover is costing your business up to 213% of every lost employee’s salary.

Managers repeatedly send the outdated, same old surveys to their teams, but don’t receive the actionable data they need to fix problems and create positive change. The surveys don’t allow problems among their workers to be identified, much less give leader the ability to fix them.
