    Sustainability Is a Growing Focus for Execs. Here’s What That Means for You.

    Sustainability Is a Growing Focus for Execs. Here’s What That Means for You.

    This year’s Gartner’s CEO and Senior Business Executive Survey reveals that environmental sustainability has become a top-10 business priority for the first time ever with more than triple the CEOs citing it than just one year prior. Meanwhile, social responsibility and ESG emerged as the second-largest contributor to CEO focus on corporate issues, increasing 50% year over year. 
     
    Here to analyze why sustainability has come to the forefront, how business leaders can advance their sustainability strategies and common pitfalls to avoid are Kristin Moyer, a Distinguished VP Analyst in Gartner's Executive Leadership of Digital Business Growth Strategies practice, and Sarah Watt, a Research Vice President on the Talent and Sustainability team.

    The Secret to More Creative, Innovative Leadership

    The Secret to More Creative, Innovative Leadership

    Especially if you work at a large, traditional organization, it’s important to find ways to think more creatively — and drive the actions that come out of these new ways of looking ahead. Your — and your company’s — success depends on it. And that’s where a new approach we call  “rogue thinking” comes in.
     
    Here to discuss the newest research on the practice, how to become a rogue thinker, and the many benefits behind it are Penny Gillespie, a Vice President and Gartner Fellow in our Customer Experience and Digital Commerce team, and Whit Andrews, a Vice President and Distinguished Analyst in our Applications and Software Engineering Group. Press play to learn from innovative organizations, understand where others get tripped up and discover seven daily actions to become a rogue thinker.

    Organizational Culture and Connectedness Is in Crisis

    Organizational Culture and Connectedness Is in Crisis

    Our new research shows that just one in four employees feel connected to their organization’s culture. Yet, employees who feel this way experience a 36% boost in performance and retention. You’ve likely heard plenty of conversation about what the workforce now expects from their employers, especially when it comes to culture — and this is exactly why.
     
    Here to discuss their research and insights into organizational culture are Alexia Cambon, a Research Director in Gartner’s HR research practice, and Mark Whittle, a Vice President of Research & Advisory, who also works within our HR practice. Listen as they explore changes in how we experience culture and connectedness, how progressive organizations can do a better job fostering these things and what’s on the horizon.

    How to Attract and Retain Talent When You Don’t Have All the Money in the World

    How to Attract and Retain Talent When You Don’t Have All the Money in the World

    Sixty percent of HR leaders are significantly concerned about employee turnover, and 62% of candidates have explored a career change in the last year. Top that off with the fact that a recent Gartner survey showed nearly three-quarters of candidates who receive a job offer have at least one other offer on the table, and it’s clear that attracting and retaining talent is a top-of-mind challenge for all business leaders.
     
    We also know that 41% of managers report needing to increase base salary an average of 15% to backfill roles. It raises the question, how can leaders attract and retain top talent if their budgets don’t support this level of funding? Graham Waller, a Distinguished VP Analyst on Gartner's digital business leadership research team, and Jamie Kohn, a Research Director in our human resources practice, join us today to discuss just that.

    What Does a Human Employee Value Proposition Look Like for Frontline Workers?

    What Does a Human Employee Value Proposition Look Like for Frontline Workers?

    Gartner estimates that there are 2.7 billion frontline workers — more than twice the number of desk-based workers. Yet, when it comes to discussing the future of work, the former are too often conspicuously absent from the conversation. 
     
    In the second episode of our four-part series around where, how, and when work gets done, Dana Stiffler, a Vice President in Gartner Research with expertise in supply chain talent strategies, and Piers Hudson, a Senior Director in Gartner’s HR Research practice, join us to discuss creating equity between frontline and so-called knowledge workers, the top attraction and retention drivers for frontline workers, and why flexibility, choice and autonomy are key.

    What Comes After the “Great Resignation?"

    What Comes After the “Great Resignation?"

    Fifty-two percent of respondents to a recent Gartner survey said the pandemic made them question the purpose of their day-to-day job, and 50% said it changed their expectations of their employer. It explains why we’ve been hearing so much about the so-called Great Resignation.
     
    In the first episode of a new series around the ever-evolving future of work, Chris Howard, Gartner’s Chief of Research, and Michelle Bazargan, a Senior Director of Strategy and Innovation, discuss how we arrived at the current moment, what leaders can do to adapt and, more so, fuel innovation, and what they expect to see come out of this reckoning.

Please go back to shorter format

I really enjoyed the shorter format where you treated a specific topic after which one could reflect on the ideas discussed, formulate next steps and dig deeper. But the larger format is really distracting as you jump from topic to topic. It also is contrary to the established research on learning abilities and information absorption (smaller chunks are better.)
In any case, this podcast really provides new insights and different perspectives to issues of the day while guiding to the future. Thanks for that.
