From Records to relationships I became inspired by the big idea behind Hibob; hence, I invited CEO Ronni Zehavi to my podcast. We explore what’s broken around the approach of the HR systems we’ve gotten used to over the past decades and why that approach won’t work any longer if you…

Psychologists say stop doing these things to see employee motivation spike

Motivation in the workplace is often the underlying indicator of a company’s success. People are the most valuable asset of any company and seeing us perform well and watching us sustain our own productivity levels, of course, comes from the motivation we bottle up and then release over the course of a workday. Employee motivation is the grease that keeps the workflow wheels turning on a daily basis and without it, culture would suffer, perks would lose their flavor, and overall office-life quality would plummet.  It’s no secret that we…

bobbers Know Best: On Getting Motivated and Making Moves

Motivation can make or break your day. It’s the difference between waking up at 6:00 am for that pre-paid yoga class or hitting the snooze button four times so you can get 7 minutes and 42 extra seconds of sleep. Motivation can be found at the bottom of a coffee cup, or it can be found in your pet’s paw that you gently stroke before leaving the house for work. Regardless, we all need to stay motivated and whatever one’s driving factor may be, we all have one or two…

Vacation Shaming:The Phenomenon is Real

Vacations. There’s no better way for working people to get clear, rejuvenate, and appreciate what’s important in their lives. Sadly, colleagues and superiors are increasingly using peer pressure and guilt trips to discourage people from taking time off. This alarming workplace phenomenon is known as ‘vacation shaming’ and it’s one reason that one-quarter of all workers will quit their jobs this year. For HR, actively encouraging its people to step away periodically from the workaday world is a must. But, what’s the most effective way to combat vacation shaming?  Managers, leave…

Put the Fun in These 7 FunkyTreats that Show Your People You’re Proud of Them

When it comes to your people’s outstanding efforts and achievements, it’s not a good idea for your people leaders and decision-makers to be the strong silent types. Bersin by Deloitte found that in companies where recognition occurs, employee engagement, productivity, and customer service is 14% higher than in those where there’s little or no recognition. Bersin also found that companies with recognition programs that are highly effective at improving engagement have a 31% lower voluntary turnover rate than companies with ineffective recognition programs.  So your company culture should constantly be…

It’s also natural to pick up your phone during these moments and start exploring your favorite apps. We’ve all been there! Instead of aimlessly scrolling (and potentially viewing #NSFW posts), hop on over to Instagram and check out some…

How HR Leaders Can Enrich High EQin Their People

Some may say emotional intelligence is a desirable trait in a partner. Others will argue that it’s crucial to raising a child, or that it far surpasses the value of IQ (intelligence quotient) due to its connection of logical and emotional reasoning or understanding. All of this and more might just be true - but, EQ is hardly recognized as a favorable characteristic in one place where emotions, human relationships, and sound reason-making meet at one busy intersection: the workplace.  High EQ belongs in the workplace for one very simple…

HR needs a makeover: Tips for rebranding the role

Rebranding isn’t just for marketing anymore. As the nature of work itself constantly innovates and changes, it’s time for the HR role to catch up. HR is often described as antiquated, outdated, or out of touch. In fact, “I hate HR” is a frequent search term on Google and Reddit.  According to an international survey, only 17% of executives view HR departments as able to measurably prove their value to the business. Anonymous surveys and feedback check-ins are a great way to gain an understanding of how people view your…

How HR Can Better Relate to its People: Out With Human Capital,In With Humanity

How is your company’s product or service enhancing people’s lives?

The bottom line is that you need to pursue more than just a means to an end. Your company will hit its full potential once current and potential customers come to believe that your product or service is making them and the world around them a better place. To do that, your business needs to understand the human condition. The good…
