HR Works 126: The Next Culture for the Next Normal

Before the pandemic, awareness of the need for a well-crafted and -maintained company culture was high, and HR was making real strides toward taking charge of those efforts. That awareness has only been heightened, and being effective has simultaneously been challenged by the pandemic. How do HR professionals adapt? What tools do they discard, and what tools do they acquire? You can also listen to the episode here: https://bit.ly/37nuiqM In today’s episode, we tackle these questions with Neil Sahota (https://www.neilsahota.com/hrworks/) an IBM Master Inventor, United Nations A.I. Advisor, professor at UC Irvine, and globally-recognized speaker and author. Neil is a founding member of the UN’s Artificial Intelligence for Social Good Committee. He is the author of Own the A.I.Revolution, providing a future-forward look at A.I., focusing on how businesses can use it to commercialize while doing good in the world.

HR Works 126: The Next Culture for the Next Normal

HR Works COVID-19 Update: Delivering Difficult News with Grace

The pandemic has changed so much about how we work together and how we interact. It has also redefined many social norms and etiquette. Layoffs, pay reductions, employee illness, and death have all increased over the last months, and with each comes a difficult conversation. HR has always been positioned to be the people who have to deliver difficult news to employees. Compassion, then, becomes an important currency of how organizations operate today. Uber, for example, has become infamous for how they fired over 3,500 employees over zoom calls. There has to be a better way, and we have with us today an expert in delivering bad news compassionately. In this episode we are pleased to have with us Dr. Anthony Orsini practicing neonatologist and founder of The Orsini Way (https://theorsiniway.com/), join me to discuss tips employers and HR professionals can use when delivering bad news. Dr. Orsini took what he learned as an ICU physician who had to deliver difficult news to families and founded The Orsini Way, a communication training company that helps healthcare professionals and business leaders navigate difficult conversations and build strong relationships.

That amount of screen time leads to more headaches and more serious headaches, an often misunderstood and underappreciated concern for employers and employees alike.
