Everyone knows that when employees are stressed out about meeting deadlines, budgets, and extreme expectations that they tend to shut down or leave.
In this episode of HR Works, which is sponsored by Incogneato.com we discuss one woman's approach to solving this problem: making joy the currency of the workplace economy.
Shani Godwin, an entrepreneur, author, blogger, speaker, and radio host. She is the founder of the marketing project support service, Communique USA. Founded in 2002, Communique USA provides marketing project relief and support to stressed out and overworked marketing departments around the country.

Her approach is to find better ways for key stakeholders and communities to work and play by using joy as its currency.
Organizations are working hard to meet the challenge of sexual harassment in the workplace head-on. However, the efficacy of sexual harassment training leaves a lot to be desired. How do employers make this training stick? Part of it boils down to creating an emotional investment in trainees, a subject that our guest excels in.
Morgan Mercer is the Chief Executive Officer of Vantage Point, an organization that strives to leverage virtual reality immersive technology to tackle complex training challenges, such as sexual harassment training.
Prior to founding Vantage Point, she concurrently served as the Head of Digital for an e-commerce startup and an Analyst for a digital agency where she has worked on high-profile contracts focused on attitude change and behavior change within the domain of complex social issues.
She has been featured on the BBC, in British Vogue, Bloomberg, The Guardian, Wired, VentureBeat, and many other media outlets.
The Department of Labor (DOL) has proposed a rule that is expected to make more than one million more workers eligible for overtime pay. Currently, the DOL is accepting comments until May 21st.

In this episode, we explore the real problem of workplace bullying. A shocking number of employees have experienced bullying and even more have witnessed it. The problem has a powerful effect on employees and therefore on organizations, including everything from engagement and retention to damaging a company’s culture.
How organizations deal with bullying plays a critical role in whether that damage done can be stopped and repaired or allowed to continue. Our guest, Catherine Mattice Zundel, MA, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, specializes in building positive cultures and confronting workplace bullying.
For over a decade, she has assisted companies ranging from Fortune 500’s to mom and pop shops, as well as the military, nonprofits, and everything in between. She is a regular contributor to Forbes and has appeared on NPR and CNN, and in USA Today, Time, Psychology Today, and many other major news venues as an expert. She's also published many articles and is one of LinkedIn Learning’s course authors.
Zundel strongly believes that bullying cannot end by just offering a training course. Listen to find out under what circumstances she would turn down an organization’s request to conduct anti-bullying training for its employees.
Do you wonder if you are a bully? Here is Zundel's popular LinkedIn article, 14 Signs You Might Be Perceived as a Workplace Bully: http://bit.ly/2UqYImP
Here are parts one and two of another interview with Zundel where we discuss the problem of bullying and some solutions:
The people of an organization generate that company's culture. That includes all of the people from the employees through middle management right up to leadership and to a degree, even the customers. When part of that culture producing chain fails, the whole culture suffers—it doesn’t disappear, it just decays.
Naturally then, if an organization’s leadership does not consciously contribute positively to the company’s culture, that culture can become disastrously problematic for every aspect of the organization from engagement issues right down to the bottom line.
In this episode we are joined Jim Barnett, the CEO, co-founder, and chairman of Glint, a company that specializes in creating great company culture. Jim is an accomplished executive and entrepreneur, having built and run several successful companies. He was the CEO, co-founder, and chairman of Turn Inc. for many years.

Prior to AltaVista, Jim was President of Ancestry.com (previously named MyFamily) and CEO of Accolade.
How are employers supposed to keep people in their roles if large percentages of people are in the wrong job? What could that mean? Luckily our guest is in a great position to answer that question.
In this episode, we are joined by Jamie Schneiderman. Jamie is the Founder and CEO of Career Spark, the leader in Predictive Career Mobility that helps organizations to understand what drives success and to easily and consistently select, develop, and promote top talent.
He believes job performance depends on people working in roles they are built to succeed in. He has long been an advocate of creating a world where the right people are in the right jobs, resulting in happier employees and more productive organizations.
Jamie has spent over 20 years building companies like Procter & Gamble, Coca-Cola, and Rogers along with several technology start-ups.
Every HR professional and recruiter knows the cost of a bad hire. Time and money spent on the hiring and training go down the tube and now you are left with nothing but that same vacancy. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could avoid making bad hires in the first place?

Mr. Hyman is author of the bestselling book “Recruit Rockstars: The 10 Step Playbook to Find The Winners & Ignite Your Business.” As Professor at Kellogg School of Management, he teaches the MBA course about recruiting.

Imagine an organization filled to the brim with great individual talent. Now imagine that organization has no formal methods for bringing those people together as a team. Likely, many of you don’t have to imagine that at all because that just might be the case at your organization.
Well so what? If individuals strive for individual success, how bad can it really be? To answer that question, we talked with a team building expert with an unusual background. Amani Roberts, aka DJ AmRo is a professional DJ and music producer, but he’s also a thought leader. Amani got his DJ chops at the Scratch Academy DJ school, but it wasn’t long before he found a way to adapt his skill set to team-building for corporate America.
Amani also hosts his own podcast, the Amani Experience, which explores creative individuals who moved from corporate life to creative life. Just how do team building and DJing fit together? I for one was excited to find out.
Finally, we would be delighted if you would be so kind as to take our recruiting practices survey. If you want to take the survey, you can find it here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/XK2B6M2
Upon completing the survey, you will also be given an opportunity to enter a $100 Amazon gift card drawing.
Today we are going to talk about engagement. The term gets used a lot, and for good reason. Organizations spend so much money, time, and training getting the right people onboard. All of that vanishes when that employee walks out the door. In many cases, retaining employees is achievable with the right set of tools aimed at employee engagement.
Today we are lucky enough to be joined by Gregg Lederman, President of Employee Engagement at Reward Gateway, the employee engagement people! He is also a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author. In October he released his most recent book, Crave: You Can Enhance Employee Motivation in 10 Minutes by Friday.
Between his title and the title of the book, I think we can safely say that we are good hands when it comes to employee engagement.
