NOW of Work

NOW of Work

By Leapgen
Now, more than ever, the workplace needs to bend to the workforce, not the other way around. The concept of the Digital Workplace has become real and more than likely forever. How does the combination of the new model of work blend with the work we have been doing from an HR perspective?

Leapgen and Jason Averbook are hosting this interactive digital meetup to foster collaboration and insight. As physical events become harder to make reality, virtual events are now mandatory.

Listen, contribute, and share ideas for navigating the new world of work!

Disrupting the Intersection of Diversity & Recruitment with Rocki Howard
Rocki Howard is doing some of the most important work that needs to be done right now, but wishes that her job didn't exist. "I would love to live in a world where I don't have a job," she tells our Jess Von Bank in this Now of Work podcast episode. Rocki is the Chief Diversity Officer of SmartRecruiters, and explains that she's on a mission to "disrupt the intersection of diversity and recruitment and create systems that lead to simple, substantive, sincere and sustainable diversity solutions." And although Rocki would love to live in a world where ALL recruiting includes diversity recruiting, she knows that the industry is not there yet.  To chip away at this dilemma, Rocki spearheaded a Diversity Hiring Toolkit with SmartRecruiters, that's changing the way people and orgs think about hiring, diversity, and retaining talent. She digs deeper during her engaging chat with Jess, as they unpack about everything from unconscious bias to tech and budget barriers. "We don't want price to be a barrier. We want people to have diversity hiring success. We believe that when you change the lives of people who are underrepresented, you change the world." Before joining SmartRecruiters, Rocki spent over 20 plus years in the recruitment industry. She's held leadership roles that include the US Operations Director at Resource Solutions, a Principal at Pipeline HC, and VP of Colleague Experience at Adecco. If you think Rocki and Jess's convo is smooth, it's because Rocki also has a podcasting background. She brings her wealth of experience and insights to her role as Host of the Voices of Diversity podcast, which seeks to amplify and humanize underrepresented voices and diversity efforts. Hear more from Rocki about changing the way we do diversity recruiting and hiring on Friday. She'll be a guest on our 2/26 Meetup Series. Save your seat now!

Solutions, Beyond the Stats: 5 Ways to Bring Women Back into the Post-Pandemic Workforce
Mita Mallick is the head of inclusion, equity and impact at Carta. She's a columnist for SWAAY and has been published in Harvard Business Review, The New York Post, and Business Insider.  In this powerful conversation with Jess Von Bank, Mita tackles head on the mass exodus of women from the U.S. workforce - 2.2 million of them since the beginning of the pandemic, to be precise. In her latest HBR piece, she moves beyond the statistics and suggests 5 ways to bring women back into the post-pandemic workforce.  Perhaps these changes were needed ALL ALONG to bring more fairness, equal opportunity, and parity to working women, and perhaps some of these changes should be legislated. But business leaders don't have to wait; companies can and must step in to bring women back into their organizations. Jess and Mita agree: we cannot see full economic recovery without women, and it's up to individual organizations to show radical leadership and take charge.  The Now of Work is about all of the ways work has changed forever. Mita and Jess explain 5 simple ways work can change for good.

When Moments Become Movements: Shereen Daniels Breaks HR Silence on Racism
Shereen Daniels chose HR as her profession; she did not choose anti-racism as a platform. That is, until she broke her silence. Now she knows freedom like never before, and she actively works to deconstruct racism in leadership teams, in organizational constructs, and in everyday conversation. "I wish we stepped into our power more," she told our host Jess Von Bank on the Now of Work. "It's not about asking yourself why culture or society or the system doesn't work for Black people; ask yourself why it works so well for White people."  Shereen lays it all bare with Jess on this raw, real, action-inspiring, change-fueling conversation. She'll tell you the words you need to say without flinching before we see real change, and together they challenge HOW we can focus on DEI for as long as we have and STILL be in the situation we're in. Change is possible, as Jess illustrates when she recalls visiting the George Floyd memorial in her native city of Minneapolis. "It occured to me," says Jess, "this this was a moment of both horror and hope. A moment of crisis so great it will inspire the biggest movement of change in the world." LISTEN if you want to see the needle move in our lifetime. LISTEN if you want to dignify work by dignifying people. Just listen. Welcome Shereen Daniels, LinkedIn Top Voice of 2020, to the Now of Work.

One Size Doesn't Fit All for Diversity Recruiting with Jackye Clayton
In this episode we preview the spring keynote speakers on our Weekly Digital Meetup.

Jackye, a DEI expert and strategist,  will dig into the tactics needed to successfully scale diversity at your company. She'll also talk about sourcing candidates, how all career trajectories aren’t the same, and the best HR Tech to consider when diversifying. Jason asks the question "how did you get into HR in the first place?" and it is definitely interesting to hear the vastly difference, and yet relatable, stories of our listeners.  We also wish our very own Jess Von Bank a happy birthday with a special musical number.  We hope you enjoy the episode!

Getting Smart (and Anti-Racist) About Recruiting with Jerome Ternynck
Jerome Ternynck is the CEO and Founder of SmartRecruiters, and he's actively changing the face of hiring forever. Like Jess, Jerome introduces himself as “born and raised in recruiting." With his heart in recruiting, his soul in technology, we see the perfect recipe for innovation. From his recruiting roots and founding one of the first Applicant Tracking Systems more than 20 years ago, Jerome now leads the smartest Talent Acquisition Suite for the modern workforce, actively changing the way global enterprises achieve hiring success while embracing diversity and inclusion in their process and technology approach (to go minute 10:20 for that conversation).  SmartRecruiters was one of the first companies to boldly proclaim they would go ‘Remote First Forever.” What have they learned from that business decision, and how is it helping them shape remote hiring best practices inside the world’s largest enterprises? Plus, one of our favorite questions to ask a podcast guest, and one of the best answers we've ever heard...be sure to listen to the end.

Design Thinking for Digital Workforce Experience-Ryan Malkes, Emily Dahl, & Mackenzie Rohn
We’ve got an all-star cast joining us on the show today, Ryan Malkes, Emily Dahl, and Mackenzie Rohn are here in the virtual studio to discuss their upcoming presentation “Design Thinking for Digital Workforce Experience” at the Fuel 2021 kickoff event produced by Leapgen. I was amazed at the energy and passion that they brought to our listeners, and at 8:30am in the morning. They shared a powerful message about driving empathetic action in the workplace. Not everyone has adapted to change in the same way and organizations need to implement a continuous listening strategy to best gauge how to help their employees. Empathy is a foundational element in Leapgen’s work to design a human-centric experience through design thinking. They reminded us that it is not about thinking so much as it is about design doing. While “planes are grounded” right now, we can take this opportunity to act and change. Join their session this Wednesday, January 13th, to gain actionable insights and practical next steps to design a better digital workforce experience.

Marc Moschetto, Kickmotor and Jason Averbook
Marc Moschetto grew up in the shadow of Apollo, a nerd to the nth degree for science and space travel. A kick motor is an engine on a spacecraft used to fire a higher level of orbit. His agency, Kickmotor, helps companies get to their next level of funding, next level of growth, achieve a level of scalability, or simply find their evolving story and and decide how they're going to tell it. Since we’re talking to one of the best storytellers we know, Jason Averbook wants to know how organizations can parlay best practices from marketing to serve and support the new distributed workforce. How do we leverage things we’ve learned in digital marketing and engagement, like knowing whether your message is resonating even when you can’t sit around the table with your audience (workforce)? HR has always had a lot to learn from marketing communications, and Marc breaks it down. How are you going to tell your story? Know your market. Have the right content strategy. And educate people so they can do their own research and come to their own conclusions. Take a listen to one of our favorite podcast guests yet.

Anne Fulton, Fuel50 and Jason Averbook
Talent development is nuanced, with career “engagers,” motivators, individual values, and skill gaps of each employee determining potential career opportunities. So how can it be scaled for an entire workforce? You democratize it, says Anne Fulton, CEO and Co-founder of Fuel50. “We love what our science brings to the business,” putting information about potential fit for a particular job in the hands of employees, the very people who should own their own future. At a time when talent optimization and internal mobility are more critical than ever for business agility and even business continuity, bringing rigor and science to decisions about talent just makes good business sense. Anne Fulton might call it business science. Enjoy this fascinating conversation between Jason Averbook and Anne Fulton.

George McGehrin tells a start-over story many entrepreneurs, business owners, anyone for that matter can relate to. When stars do not align in your favor and you’re forced to rebuild and make decisions all over again, how do you rebuild better and smarter than before? What new decisions do you make? It’s a story we can all learn from in an historic year that has handed us the opportunity to rebuild just about everything. Perhaps the Great American Dream is the Great American Start-Over Story.

Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane, H3 HR and Jason Averbook, Jess Von Bank | Part 2
Take a listen as Jason Averbook and Jess Von Bank continue their conversation with Trish McFarlane and Steve Boese of H3 HR and the HR Happy Hour. The conversation continues with personalization and prioritization when it comes to how, when and where we work. That’s just one long-awaited and surprise benefit of the pandemic driving everyone out of traditionally defined and structured workplaces and known, well-worn norms. But wait: just because we “went digital” during Covid, does that mean we just push things remote and online and say we’re digital now? NOPE. Remote doesn’t mean digital, tech doesn’t equal digital, online doesn’t imply digital. Digital requires a new EXPERIENCE, and that requires intentional design, a unique approach, and an elevated experience. And don’t miss RANT #2 in Episode 2 of 2 with Steve and Trish: We need to break education and learning if we’re going to truly transform work. Yes, we’re talking about K-12 and post-secondary education. Start teaching learners how to learn and skill themselves BEFORE they get to the workforce; form the right habits early in our learning lifecycle rather than waiting to break or form new habits once workers enter adulthood and the workforce. It’s Jason’s rant about poking the balloon to better prepare young people for work. Listen up! For more information on H3 HR Click Here Register today for our

Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane, H3 HR and Jason Averbook, Jess Von Bank | Part 1
Trish McFarlane and Steve Boese do incredible work to support HR and the HR Technology space. That’s why Jason Averbook and Jess Von Bank hosted them on the Now of Work, and why they had a billion questions. “When do we get to stop talking about Covid?” “What do the unemployment claims, jobs reports, and reported dismissals need to show us before we can claim economic recovery?” “How does the talent pot get re-sorted and re-mixed when HALF of American small businesses won’t survive Covid and when entire industries and verticals are being shattered?” “How did the pandemic act like a GREAT CLEARING when it came to workplace redundancies?” Those were just a few questions bantered about, and then came RANT #1 in EPISODE 1 of 2 in this conversation with Steve and Trish. Concerns for employee health - not just physical but MENTAL health - became very real and highly exacerbated during the pandemic. These are not new problems; now they’re newly acknowledged. It’s time for employers to do more to support the whole person, and work tech plays an important role.

Dan Beck & Annrai O'Toole, Utmost and Jason Averbook
Work has changed forever, and it's ABOUT TIME. We were 10 years behind when it came to matching our experience of work to our experience of the WORLD. Just one way work has changed is how we think of it, how we structure and compensate work, who performs it and the employment relationship people desire, and how we think about “employees" versus "talent opportunities." We want flexibility, customization, and personalization to Work Your Way. We’ve called it the gig economy, the contingent workforce, and other things, but let’s stop separating it from our holistic view of WORK. There are a lot of different actors in the complicated landscape of the extended workforce; a holistic model and manageable experience should be the goal.

How do you possibly describe what it's like to work for your company when everything is changing, everything is distributed and virtual, but the open jobs you're still hiring for are more important than ever? She has a tried-and-true process for getting to the heart of the matter, which means she's a great writer, a great storyteller about work and the people who do it, a no-bullshit kind of woman, and a pretty insightful human being.
