We recently hosted a series of conversations with leaders in the fields of employee experience, performance management and HR to discuss the impact of the most significant changes in work practices in over a century. We compiled the highlights, tips and tricks, frameworks and inspirational thoughts from the world’s foremost thought leaders in HR.

Angel Hoover, Managing Director at Willis Towers Watson shared her insights about accelerating performance:

“There are a number of things in the High Performing Employee Experience Index that we’ve known for a long time, right? We’ve known the importance of inspiring authentic leaders. We’ve known that effective managers help to ensure that employees feel connected and part of a community, have a voice and are given opportunities to build capability. What do you think is the difference now? Because these are conversations that we’ve been having for a long time, but what’s the difference? Now we have data that actually supports this in a really specific way. So when Aisling and I were having this conversation with our internal clients 10 or even 15 years ago, it was more of the research that was telling us what we didn’t we didn’t have, so we had data and surveys that said ‘you should do this’. But now, in today’s environment, not only do we have that, but we also have the quantitative connection to business and financial performance that is telling us that these specific things on the index are creating, influencing and and accelerating performance.”

Aisling Teillard, CEO of Tandem shared her insights about helping leaders:

“Leaders who are coming out and showing authenticity and vulnerability and, you know, even putting it out there, you know, “Give me some feedback” – this is how we navigate these stormy times, you know, those are the leaders who are rising and being more and more trusted over time and creating that purposefulness, and that, you know, collaborative spirit that we so desperately need in agile environments. Those are the leaders who are rising to the top. And I think it really begs the question of what kind of leadership blend we need to create going forward because leaders who might have relied on things like presenteeism and structure and process but you know, disciplines of the past, it might not serve them very well coming back. And I think we need to support them with new tools and processes and new leadership styles to try and orient them for the future so that they can weather the new storms that are ahead of us.”

Aisling Teillard, CEO of Tandem shared her insights about helping leaders:

“I think values are becoming more and more transparent to the external world. Whether our leaders are holding the company values to account or not. And I think that’s one of the things that we really need to consider as HR leaders that there’s an onus on us, that we navigate our leaders through this and live our values despite the hugely challenging circumstances we’re going through because there isn’t a leader out there who’s got all this sussed or figured out.”

We compiled the highlights, tips and tricks, frameworks and inspirational thoughts from the world’s foremost thought leaders in HR.

Kevin Empey, Managing Director of WorkMatters shared his insights on a new way of working:

“It is a giant, ginormous experiment, isn’t it? In new ways of working. I guess it’s what we’re all experiencing and we’re experiencing at the same time. It’s not just like one organization trying something and then finding it doesn’t work. Because the rest of the world is kind of in alignment. And we’re all going through this huge experiment in terms of how work gets done, how decisions are made, how performance is measured, how, who does work, who does the work and where. The lines of delineation between functions and roles are different. I talked to one client the other day, and he was just talking about, you know, leaders are checking in with their folks. “Are you fully utilized? Fine, great, because we need you to really focus on what you’re doing. If you have some utilization, can you can you spare that with other members of the team who are struggling? And if you’re really underutilized, what skills have you got that maybe you would be open to sharing with other functions around the business?” And so there’s this idea of getting people almost to craft their own jobs, rather than the leaders saying ‘do this, do that, or I’ve got the answer’. I think we’ve got this great experiment going on. Even though there’s still a lot of pain and hurt and crisis in the air and more of that to come. I know everybody’s got different circumstances in terms of sector and industry, but I’m certainly aware of several folks who are already beginning to capture what’s going on in the world in the way work is being done right now. But they want to retain what work habits and what work behaviors and ways of working would actually support the culture that they were probably already aspiring to before this happened.”

We recently hosted a series of conversations called HR at the Heart, with leaders in the fields of employee experience, performance management and HR to discuss the impact of the most significant changes in work practices in over a century. We’ve compiled The Resilience Toolkit with highlights, tips and tricks, frameworks and inspirational thoughts from the world’s foremost thought leaders in HR, including:

Angel Hoover, Willis Towers Watson
John Fitzgerald, Harmonics Group
Aisling Teillard, Tandem
Fiona Buckley, Steps to Success
Kevin Empey, Workmatters
Alison Hodgson, Virgin Media
Tara Nolan, The Game of Teams Podcast
Jim O’Brien, Tandem

“Causing an inflection point for us all to think and to reflect, what pace of life are we going at before? And is this a time for us to take stock right now?” – John Fitzgerald, Harmonics

“The fact that Necessity is the mother of innovation. So we were all confronted with a new reality that we had to get on with.” – Alison Hodgson, Virgin Media

“We’re all going through this, this, this huge experiment in terms of how work gets done, how decisions are made, how performance is measured, who does work, who does the work and where?” – Kevin Empey, WorkMatters

“And I think the more we can really say this in our language now at the moment is exceptionally important. So either default to trust or assume positive intent. People are out there not to get you at the moment.” – Fiona Buckley, Steps to Success

“I think what is really required in this world and certainly for teams is much Trust I think was mentioned earlier in one of your other series. But trust until almost you’re proven incorrectly” – Tara Nolan, The Game of Teams Podcast

“The real winner and all of this has been trust. Everybody had no option other than to trust that people were going to turn up every day metaphorically. Logon go do what needed to be done – do their job. So trust is the biggest winner.” – Alison Hodgson, Virgin Media

“This idea of clear expectations in today’s environment, even when it’s really short term, right? It could be this week’s objectives is really helpful for most employees, because they are dealing with such uncertainty and ambiguity in everything else. That even that little bit of directional nudging is enough and don’t shoot for the moon, just get to the sidewalk outside your house. Sometimes that’s enough for employees during this very disruptive time.” – Angel Hoover, Willis Towers Watson

“So I think this is an opportunity for humanity to increase in the workplace. But I just hope that we don’t go back to maybe the good old, the good old bad ways.” – John Fitzgerald, Harmonics

“So what’s next? And so for us, we want to bottle the good. There has been some good experiences and some some great learnings.” – Alison Hodgson, Virgin Media

Many thought leaders debated the future of work but not many are so quick to discuss the future of HR. There’s one voice that has been signposting the future of HR for many decades and has accurately depicted where in HR we should play next. In this short video we hear of a new perspective that embraces an outside in approach. For many years we focused on the people agenda on the basis that if we look after the people, they will take care of the customer, but is it now time to consider the customer within the HR function. What if we focused our attention on what the customer needs and worked back from there on what the people agenda should encompass. David Ulrich poses this fresh perspective which might really change the way in which we determine strategy. Furthermore, he makes the valid point that we shouldn’t restrict ourselves to the people agenda in isolation but help build the system within which the people operate. Now that really would change the manner in which we position the function, the strategy and our operations. Interesting times for HR, hear more from the man himself, Mr. David Ulrich, here in our short video.

 

Hear Dave Ulrich talk about the key components of agile in organisations. “Great is the enemy of change” and feedback is a key component in driving agile. Find out more in this 90 second video. Full interview coming soon!

To Rate or Not To Rate?

What if that’s not the question your organisation should be asking? In 3 minutes, Dave Ulrich and Aisling Teillard talk further about positive performance accountability and give you the important questions you should ask to guide your organisation’s performance management transformation.

Considering changing your performance management practices, you won’t want to miss the concept of positive performance accountability. Check out this 90 seconds of inspiration from the man who has led the way in HR through his thought leadership that has transformed HR at every level, Mr. David Ulrich.

Our CEO had the privilege of discussing the future of employee experience with Mr. David Ulrich, the true Master of HR. Dave has been the thought leader that has always shone a light on the next wave of HR and what lies ahead of us and in this interview he doesn’t disappoint, giving us a taste of the future direction and where we in HR should focus our energies, when it comes to employee experience. In the space of 90 seconds he gives us clear guidance and framework for how we move the employee experience agenda to the next level.
