    Retention in the time of the Great Resignation with Lauren Dai #68



    In the episode, Nick Day is joined on The HR L&D Podcast sofa by COO & Co-founder at Cocoon, Lauren Dai! Cocoon is a business founded by three powerhouse women focused entirely on reimagining employee leave management. In this episode, we discuss how to make employee leave easy and how doing so can significantly impact employee retention in the wake of the Great Resignation.

    Employee leave benefits are complicated, and Cocoon was founded to bring clarity and simplicity to both the employer and employee experience.

    The platform is designed for any type of employee leave, and in 2021, it raised $20 million in Series A funding; the platform has collected a rich set of data about how employees are using their leave benefits and what they are taking it for to create insights for employers to understand how better to craft their benefits going forward.

    With the process of attracting and retaining talent a top priority for organizations worldwide, today we will find out more about why innovative, employee-focused policies regarding employee leave benefits are now making the limelight – especially now as we experience the “Great Resignation”.

    So let's find out more!

    In this “Retention in the time of the Great Resignation” episode with Lauren Dai on The HR L&D Podcast, we also explore:



    * Why you and your co-founders built Cocoon?

    * How should HR departments be reacting to The Great Resignation?

    * In the research you have conducted, what are companies doing to help retain talent?

    * How has the global move towards remote and hybrid working impacted how companies assess or consider benefits?

    * What are the trends that you are seeing across your customers?

    * When in an employee’s life cycle is the most critical time for HR to "get it right"?

    * Cocoon is a platform that helps employees to design their leave in minutes, from compliance to payroll and everything in between. Tell us more about the platform.

    * What are the best people leaders doing to prepare their companies to be well positioned one year from now?

    * What characteristics make a great leader in this new world of work?

    Did you know that organizational change fails 70% of the time?

    In the episode, Nick Day is joined on The HR L&D Podcast sofa by screenwriter turned Organizational Psychologist Lindsey Caplan, who helps organizations script and re-script employee experiences to help HR and business leaders script their change efforts for the effect they want.

    Lindsey Caplan is an organizational psychologist and communication strategist. She helps HR, Marketing, and Business Leaders script employee experiences that help boost morale, engagement, and retention for the long term via her consultancy, The Gathering Effect.

    Lindsey began her career as a comedy writer in Hollywood on shows such as Curb Your Enthusiasm and Malcolm in the Middle. She then started scripting for education companies like DreamWorks Animation and McKinsey.

    These experiences helped Lindsey to develop her career to become an organizational Psychologist and Head of Talent Development for successful silicon valley companies like Zendesk, Credit Karma, and Flexport.

    The lessons she has learned along the way have helped her to develop a proprietary method she now uses help HR leaders understand why the change they want isn’t being embraced and what to do instead.

    * What do the words Human Resources mean to you?

    * How do you help organizations define, diagnose, and adjust their gatherings to bring people together, maximise employee engagement and help ensure that organisational change programmes stick?

    * What is “the gathering effect”?

    * What is the difference between push and pull, or the “one size fits all versus personalized gatherings” and their effects on outcome & culture?

    * What are the characteristics that lead to gatherings that last?

    * Did the recent pandemic reveal any new insights?

    LinkedIn Profile Optimisation for Professionals with Donna Serdula

    LinkedIn Profile Optimisation for Professionals with Donna Serdula

    Linkedin Profile Optimisation for Professionals with Donna Serdula #63

    Nick Day is joined on The HR L&D Podcast sofa by Donna Serdula, who is an influencer that has been pivotal in pioneering the concept of LinkedIn profile optimisation for business leaders across the globe.

    This work led Donna in 2009, to found Vision Board Media and LinkedIn-Makeover.com where she developed the now coveted, “LinkedIn 4-point methodology”.  Donna now has over 40 writers working for her who all work hard to help thousands of executives, entrepreneurs, sales stars, business leaders, and professionals from around the world to create professionally branded LinkedIn profiles.

    Donna is also the author of the book “LinkedIn Profile Optimization For Dummies,” published by Wiley.

    Now, Let’s be honest, when was the last time you took a detailed look at your own LinkedIn profile?  How many of you know it could be a little better and yet we still haven’t done anything to improve it?  Or perhaps the question we should be asking ourselves is this - what incredible opportunities are we missing out on because of an un-optimised profile?

    LinkedIn has over 610 million professionals in over 200 countries listed on the platform and for many, LinkedIn provides the first impression of you that others see.  So why aren’t we using it to its fullest extent?  What can we do to ensure we are leveraging the power of the platform more effectively?

    Fear not!  Because Linkedin Profile branding expert Donna Serdula is here to help!

    Donna has been featured on Forbes, Business Insider, Time’s Money Section, Wall Street Journal’s Market Watch, LA Times, NBC, SiriusXM Radio’s The Focus Group, and many other news outlets so without further ado, lets welcome Donna Serdula to the show!

    In this “Linkedin Profile Optimisation for Professionals” episode with Donna Serdula on The HR L&D Podcast, we also explore:



    * What do the words Human Resources mean to you?

    * How can we optimize our LinkedIn profile to get found?

    * Can you tell us more about your “LinkedIn 4-point methodology”?

    * Why is networking on LinkedIn now more important than ever?

    * How can we attract business partners and employees with our LinkedIn?

    * How do we create and update our LinkedIn profile for personal branding?

    * If I was an HR practitioner new to LinkedIn or perhaps even sceptical of LinkedIn, how would you sell it as a proposition or why is it essential we have a presence on the platform?

    * How did the collaboration with the publisher Wiley occur that resulted in your excellent book: Book on Amazon: “LinkedIn Profile Optimization For Dummies”?

    * What has working with over 6000 executives taught you about LinkedIn success?
