There is no denying 2020 has delivered an abundance of challenges for all of us, both personally and professionally. Just when it looked like we could start planning for life after COVID-19, and begin to navigate a shaky economy, the explosive pain of racial injustice contorted our society.
A new year is fast approaching and, with it, comes new laws, opportunities, and potential challenges for HR professionals. But creating a positive workplace culture is likely to be a constant activity, this year and next. So, what are the top HR trends that will lend to building a positive work culture in 2020 and beyond?
On August 7, @shrmnextchat chatted with Christopher Mullen, Ph.D., SHRM-SCP, director of strategic advisory, Kronos Inc. (@chrismmullen) about Work Inspired: How to Build an Organization Where Everyone Loves to Work.
Imagine a company where everyone loves to work. Where employees feel truly cared for, respected and energized. Think of the impact this would have on recruitment, retention, customer satisfaction, innovation and overall company performance.
Over the last decade, most HR leaders have been obsessed by the role of millennials at work and figuring out how to meet the different expectations and needs of these young workers.
Certainly, this has been important work. But, leaders need to be aware of a much bigger demographic challenge ahead: the role of people over the age of 55.
Many companies talk of being employee engagement recognition catalysts. Bonusly is a bit different. My chat with their CEO reveals their focus on how they can be a good fit into an already existing culture. To insure their customers attain their goals, Bonusly has a customer success teams.

We’ve all heard the saying: people don’t quit their jobs; they quit their managers.
But in my experience, the problem is always bigger than one toxic individual. Unsatisfying work is a product of an unsatisfying workplace.
One of out every five working Americans has left a job because of a toxic work culture. And 64 percent say managers have the greatest cultural impact.
It’s time we have a serious conversation about culture in the workplace and the real impact People Managers have on morale, productivity and the business bottom line.
One of the great things about working at SHRM is the opportunity to speak with so many HR professionals and business leaders who are making a real difference in their workplaces. One thing I’ve certainly learned is that every one of SHRM’s 300,000-plus members has unique experiences and viewpoints that deserve to be heard.
I sat down with Jenn Lim, a speaker in the Change Makers Series. I chatted with Jenn about her work creating the Zappos Culture Book and co-founding Delivering Happiness with Zappos CEO, Tony Hsieh.

Community engagement is one of those phrases we hear frequently. We share that we’re involved and that we give back, but what does this really mean for the bottom line of workforce management? After several years in the cyber security community I can tell you it means a lot, not only to your bottom line but also to your retention, recruitment, and training efforts.
