According to Myers-Briggs, more than 88 percent of Fortune 500 companies use assessment tools for people development globally. Why is workplace communication important? Because it enables people to be productive and efficient.
People do better work when they feel appreciated and valued. That’s why it’s important to recognize and reward employees for their efforts and contributions.
One thing becomes apparent when you step in the expo hall at Annual SHRM: the number of HR & Payroll outsourcing solutions is overwhelming. There’s over 1,289 HCM companies listed in SHRM’s vendor directory, and many of those companies seem to be here.
Making a hiring decision is really hard. I don’t care if it’s your first time or your 1,000th time - evaluating a person for a job isn’t easy.
I’ve been attending annual SHRM conferences for 12 years now, and this annual conference is distinctively different for one key reason:
WE ARE AT THE LOWEST UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IN 50 YEARS
Translation? Recruiting employees in 2019 is difficult.
I have to admit that I did not know the keynote speaker Brené Brown. I could tell from the buzz in the audience that she was well known and well thought of, so I paid attention. I am glad I did. I have also looked at some of her stuff online since #SHRM19. That made me pay attention even more.
Bravery and Courage
I was a little surprised to see Chuck Gallagher enter the stage in an orange jumpsuit. I have actually known him for a few years, but I never knew he was in prison. It was a reminder that many times we don’t know people’s backgrounds and life stories. They influence a person’s behavior. Right in line with SHRM19’s initiative for second chances, Chuck Gallagher’s presentation on ethics was spot on.
We're joined by Kevin Hubbard for our first ever live in front of an audience recording of the show! This was part of our session with the Emerging Professionals group at SHRM19 in Las Vegas. Kevin is currently an Executive MBA - Human Resources Leadership student with the Jack Welch Management Institute as well as a Campus Coordinator for Strayer University in Columbus, GA. We talk about why Kevin is pursuing HR as a career, getting involved in the online HR community, and more.

One Month Later -- Did your SHRM take-aways get packed away?
As I reflect on last month, it is a great time to be in HR. We were reminded that AI is here to stay and this solution will not threaten jobs as is often feared, instead these advances will allow us to do our very best work with our added sense of judgement and reasoning. High-tech will allow us to be high-touch.
We all know an engaged workforce is a productive, loyal workforce and yet it’s continually a challenge to determine the best ways to support employees.
Engagement is not a one-and-done event. It must be ongoing, and organizations that include regular recognition as part of their culture have more engaged employees.
