16 hours ago | HR Acuity | HCI

In February 2017, eight months before #MeToo went viral, a former senior engineer at Uber, Susan Fowler, published a blog alleging rampant sexual harassment, retaliation, and discrimination. Following an extensive investigation including hundreds of interviews, former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and his colleagues at Covington & Burling issued a list of recommendations aimed at changing the company’s culture and practices. While Uber’s transgressions were severe, they are not alone.  The headlines of the past year indicate that many organizations are still at risk and in need of transformation. What lessons can be learned and how must organizations respond?

Pursuing Your Dreams: Decide, Go, Don’t Ever Give Up

September 10, 2018 | Taryn Stejskal | HCI

Do you know what it feels like to speak your dream out loud? Until recently, I didn’t. I was terrified I would fail or that people would laugh at me and my dream. So, I stayed silent. “You? A bestselling author?” I imagined people saying between chuckles, “You can’t be serious.”

Show People Their Work Matters, See Engagement Surge

September 4, 2018 | Bill Catlette | HCI

Asking people to do a job without the benefit of a clear picture of how their work fits in is like asking someone to assemble a jigsaw puzzle without first getting a glimpse of the assembled version on the box top. It can be done, but the progress is slow and frustrating.

Stop Slinging Spaghetti at Employee Engagement

August 31, 2018 | Paul Adachi, Ph.D., Director of Business Development, motivationWorks | HCI
