Guest:

Steve Boese, HR Technology Conference program chair and HR Happy Hour podcast co-host

With the employee experience becoming more important than ever and the continued desire of workers to function autonomously through technology, it pays to make your processes as simple as possible. If your employees can’t — or, worse, won’t — use your HR tech because it’s not sufficiently user-friendly, you’ll never see the autonomy your employees need to thrive.

The same is true for managers. At some point, every manager wishes he or she could be in two (or more) places at once. Usually, one of those places is a desk, where paperwork — or at least its electronic equivalent — seems to accumulate at a steady, unrelenting rate. Giving your managers the ability to quickly knock out those tasks frees them up to help foster autonomy and your company’s culture with their teams.

What could your employee experience and bottom line gain by pursuing simplicity in your HR technology and autonomy in your workforce?

In this episode of HR Break Room®, host Caleb Masters is rejoined by Boese to discuss:

  • how creating an autonomous workforce benefits both the employee experience and the bottom line
  • the key drivers that are influencing the emphasis on the employee experience in today’s workplace
  • the role managers play in creating a culture of autonomy by driving the employee usage of HR technology
  • Boese’s impressions of Manager on-the-Go™, Paycom’s tool recently named a top 2020 HR product by Human Resource Executive magazine

As organizational leaders around the country continue to pursue new avenues for innovation, preparing for possible business disruptions remains a priority.

A company’s executive team sets the tone, making it essential for organizational leaders to ensure the traits of caring, positivity and innovation cascade down to managers in order to see the same drive and ability to quickly change business strategies reflected in the broader workforce.

How can business leaders prepare managers to be agile with the tools and training they need to ensure their teams are ready for unexpected business disruptions?

 

In this episode of HR Break Room®, host Caleb Masters is joined by Ken and Scott Blanchard to discuss:

  • the role organizational leaders play helping their workforce navigate through business disruptions.

 

  • how organizations can become agile and able to weather unforeseen increases or decreases in business using effective communication and honest conversations with employees.

 

  • what leaders can do to foster a culture of servant leadership through their managers.

 

  • how training technology can be used to prepare managers to effectively lead their teams through change.

 

Ensure your managers are prepared with the tools they need to lead change management initiatives when business disruptions occur. Learn more by reading our white paper, Making the Change: How to Lead a Digital Transformation to Success.
