The State of Workplace Empathy is Vital, but Stalled

Article | August 4, 2020

A global pandemic. Economic uncertainty. A growing social justice movement seeking accountability for long-standing systemic inequality. An upcoming election. These are all powerful changes taking place this year. Our health and well-being are contending with these forces and the unprecedented change they bring to our lives and workplaces. For example, many organizations, including ours, shifted to an all remote operation. This presents unique challenges in the "new normal" workplace such as continuing to develop strong workplace culture while fighting feelings of isolation, balancing work and childcare while monitoring and maintaining a high-level of productivity. For those not working remotely, HR teams are facing employee burnout and concerns for mental and physical health.

Article | August 7, 2020

This seems to be a common question HR managers and company executives hear these days, especially during a global pandemic where many are struggling financially.

Big five blockers to data science progress in HR

Article | April 15, 2021

There are some powerful use cases for data science in HR, whether that’s chatbots delivering real-time answers to important analytical questions, or the huge cost savings that can come from reducing employee churn. So why isn’t everyone doing all this already? Here, I’d like to explain five of the most common blockers to making data-driven HR decisions, and the questions you need to ask if you want to make your journey into data science successful. Blocker 1: Case studies If you’re looking to start transforming HR with data science, there isn’t going to be a lot of case-study evidence to point to. Some companies want others to test the water before they jump in, but that isn’t going to happen here. Although large firms are making big investments here, the work is valuable intellectual property, which means the chances of details being shared are slim. Ask yourself: Will I lead the way?
