Learned Team Hopefulness: Subtle Shifts Lead to Powerful Possibilities

1 day ago | Ben Bratt | HCI

It’s a defining moment when team members begin to sense that they have far more control over events than they previously realized; that they aren’t hostages of any situation or history; that collectively they have substantial capability to shape their world.

What Makes a Good HR Business Partner?

April 16, 2018 | Devin Morrissey | HCI

The definition of a human resources business partner (HRBP) has undoubtedly changed over the years. Originally the job was very different from traditional HR roles in that it dealt with more money-related issues, working with administrative heads of departments and not employees themselves.

How to Escape from the Rut

April 9, 2018 | Aubrey Wiete | Human Capital Institute (HCI)

Personal ruts are tricky; they develop slowly but quickly suck the energy and enthusiasm out of a situation. Sometimes the cause is hard to pinpoint: a lack of development, an absentee manager, an undefined role, but the result is eerily similar. You feel stagnant, disconnected from your work not because you have too little to do, but because you are no longer inspired by it.

Managing Flight Risk in a Workforce That’s Always Looking

April 2, 2018 | Bill Catlette | HCI

Not long ago, a client CEO and SVPHR asked if any of the three executives I was coaching for them presented a flight risk. My reply was to the effect that the operative word wasn’t “any,” but rather, ALL of them. Sure enough, over the ensuing nine months, each made his exit. As the economy and job market continue to warm, this has become an all too familiar chorus.

The Social Sharing Super Powers of Modern Recognition Programs

March 16, 2018 | Debra Corey | Reward Gateway

Companies need to recognize that the tools we used in the past to connect with our employees will not continue to work as our workforce changes. These tools were designed for a different workforce - one that did not need real-time interactive communications or regular transparent recognition.

5 Learning and Development Questions You Can’t Answer Without Analytics

March 13, 2018 | Ian Cook | Visier

Without strong Learning and Development (L&D) programs, employees may have a harder time being productive, moving up in the organization, and contributing to financial performance. Additionally, it can also lead to lower employee engagement and increased turnover.
