    Let’s Talk About – Work Without Jobs with guest Ravin Jesuthasan


    Welcome to foHRsight – a podcast about making work better brought to you by future foHRward.


    In this week’s episode we’re joined by Ravin Jesuthasan – futurist, thought leader, author and Global Transformation Leader at Mercer.


    In this rich conversation with Naomi, Ravin shares insights from his most recent book Work Without Jobs where he challenges us to think differently about how we structure work and move away from a traditional one person, one position approach.


    In addition to sharing interesting case studies from DLH and Unilever, Ravin and Naomi talk about the four principles to deconstruct work, the value of taking a skills-based approach and how the expectations of leaders are changing. We hope you enjoy the podcast!

    Building the Worker Ecosystem

    Building the Worker Ecosystem

    Building the Worker Ecosystem – formerly known as recruitment!
    Welcome to foHRsight – a podcast about making work better brought to you by future foHRward.


    We all know how much the world of work has changed in recent years, but the way we attract talent has arguably seen the most disruption. We call this building the worker ecosystem at future foHRward.


    In this episode of foHRsight, Naomi and Mark chat about how the tight labour market and new innovations have changed the world of talent acquisition with emerging ways to tap into talent pools including gig workers, alumni and retirees.


    We advocate for a buy, build and bot (and borrow, which we didn't outwardly say but referred to with gig workers) talent strategy to create a more robust approach to talent management.


    Mark mentions a post about ChatGPT – you can find it here!

    We’re excited to have our first guest on this week’s episode of the foHRsight podcast – Gustavo Razzetti. Gustavo is on a mission “to help people to do the best work of their lives” and in this episode Naomi had the opportunity to chat with him about his new book Remote Not Distant.
    The book provides a provides a roadmap for organizations and team that want to build a strong culture that helps team thrive in a hybrid workplace.
    There were so many great take-aways from the conversation … here is just a flavour:
    The importance of companies deciding where and when work gets done based on the work not the scheduleThe myth that collaboration has to be done in person … not to mention Naomi’s bug bear that cultures can’t be maintained in a hybrid environment and likely need to evolveProximity does not automatically lead to belongingThe importance of discipline in creating what people really want - freedomYou can learn more about Gustavo and his work at Fearless Cultures here – https://gustavorazzetti.com/

    Productivity and Prioritization

    Productivity and Prioritization

    Welcome to foHRsight – a podcast about making work better brought to you by future foHRward.


    The start of the year is the time when many organizations are rolling out the priorities for their teams. In this week’s episode we make the case for thinking about prioritization in a broader sense beyond the top corporate goals.


    Many leaders don’t feel their teams are being productive (see Microsoft report below) and while this is contrary to the views of individuals, it does present an opportunity to focus on measuring outcomes.


    Taking the time to think about how you can simplify often complex tasks at work and streamline meetings can help people to prioritize their time and ultimately be more productive.
    As next week’s guest Gustavo Razzetti says “… busyness is a wicked problem.”

    Our Predictions for 2023

    Welcome to foHRsight – a podcast about making work better brought to you by future foHRward.


    Happy New Year – wishing all of our listeners a wonderful 2023 as we continue to work together to make work better.

    In this week’s first episode of 2023, we bring in the year with our hopes and predictions for 2023.

    As Scott Galloway says, predictions is a “sh*tty business”, but it’s still an important exercise to create a good sense of the challenges and opportunities ahead. We focus our conversation on three themes we expect to be a big deal in 2023:
    Workplace learningLeadership developmentWell-being – and the increasing overlap we’re seeing with the DEIB agenda

    Our reflections on the year that was 2022

    Our reflections on the year that was 2022

    Welcome to foHRsight – a podcast about making work better brought to you by future foHRward.
    How did we get to Episode 3 so quickly!
    In this seasonal episode we share our reflections on the year that was 2022, but before we got in to that it was a long overdue introduction to our dogs (Tilly, Cori and Charlie – images available on Instagram!) and did a check-in on our favourite Holiday traditions.
    You’ll find a recipe to bread sauce here - https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/bread-sauce-0.
    The year that was 2022
    After a slow start, our sense was that 2022 was part of the much-needed process of developing a new (better) set of norms for work.  This involved a lot of test-and-learn, experimentation and maybe even a little bit of ‘paralysis from analysis’.


    This is perhaps understandable as many leaders were cautious about setting clear expectations when they weren’t sure how their people would react – particularly in a very tight labour market. 


    It will be interesting how 2023 unfolds – we’ll cover that in a future episode!
