    GDPR and the role HR Plays - Phil Byrne, Enable ISO

    On today’s show, we have Phil Byrne, Managing Partner at Enable ISO,  a company that specialises in consulting for organisations working toward ISO certification.
    We ask Phil on the show to talk about all things compliance, in particular, GDPR.
    GDPR often falls under the remit of HR in companies. We ask Phil what he thinks are the most common GDPR misconceptions in HR, what exactly is the role of the Data Protection Officer (DPO) and does this responsibility sit with HR?
    We also talk about the new Whistleblower legislation, who it affects and how do you go about dealing with a complaint. If you are in HR and these areas fall under your remit, this is the pod for you. We really hope you enjoy it!

    Womens Health in the Workplace with Katie Ridge from Adare HRM

    Approx. 600,000 women in Ireland are affected by menopause and other women’s health related issues at any one time. 
    These issues can undermine women’s confidence, and recent surveys show, that up to 8% of women affected, exit the workforce as a result of womens health related issues. 
    Research shows that companies that are taking affirmative action by having supports in place, help greatly with recruitment & retention as employees feel supported in their workplace. 
    Katie give us some great insights into what companies should do, how to promote awareness and create an environment where women can feel safe to have open conversations about these issues, and what policies progressive companies should put in place in order to see the benefits of supporting their female employees.

    The rise of the 4 day workweek - How the Wanderlust Group increased productivity by reducing hours

    The rise of the 4 day workweek - How the Wanderlust Group increased productivity by reducing hours

    With many calling it a life-work revolution, covid inadvertently brought about a huge work experiment, where people have had to juggle home and work life and boundaries became less defined. As a result, employees are now choosing to work for companies that are willing to offer a more flexible working arrangement. The Wanderlust Group has operated on a 4-day workweek over the last 18 months,  and since shifting to that model has grown revenue by 100% year over year. We invited Meghan Keany Anderson, CMO of the wanderlust Group on the podcast to ask her how smaller businesses can compete for talent in an employee-driven marketplace.
    We ask Meghan about the practicalities of implementing a 4 day work week, does it help with employer branding when trying to source and attract new talent and what insights she can give us about the benefits and pitfalls (if any) from a company that has been walking the walk for the last 18 months.
