The Flexibility Benefit: Don't forget pay
We found a "lost" IFOW treasure in this interview with Jim Colassano, SVP, Product Development and Strategy at The Clearing House...all about how to speed up your employees' access to the money they've earned. In a world where few of us have the financial readiness to handle an unplanned expense of $400, RTP and maybe even - should we dare say it...blockchain...are tools of the payment flexibility the our current and future team members value the most. Listen to learn what you should be asking your payroll provider about and for...before someone else lures your best people away with a different type of better pay.
The Clearing House
Thank you...and keep ACTIVATING
Jeff Lesher bids the IFOW Activators a fond farewell with some parting bits of wisdom he’s picked up from others along the way. As producer of most of our 147 episodes and the host of more than 100, Jeff wants listeners to continue to delve into the treasure trove of knowledge shared by our many wonderful guests. Be well. Do even better. And multiply your impact by helping support others’ success.
Ability and Aspiration: The critical elements of high impact talent acquisition and management
Erin Lazarus, Director of Solution Architects at SHL, a talent spectrum solutions company, helps enlighten us on al things talent acquistion to talent management with a healthy dose of assessment and experience. It's a crash course in all the things we could know and understand better about our people if we'd only direct our time and resources more effectively. Learn how a few accessible adjustments can have a huge impact.
Underestimated Talent Week, Episode 2: Being a belonging advocate
We love and appreciate all our IFOW guests, and - still - Ivori rises above due to her acute passion for and skill in inviting the rest of us into the better, more productive environment created by more fully knowing each other. Fostering belonging is an ongoing and individualized effort...figuring out how to position differences as complements rather than have them sow conflict requires interest, empathy, and commitment. While we're never done, we can experience the heady highs of rallying around common objectives and making magic through the pot luck of our skills and sensibilities. Pretty f$%#*&g awesome!
Underestimated Talent Week, Episode 1: Quiet hiring
Among the most underestimated talent out there are the people you employ right now! That's kinda nuts. Jeff Schwartz, a future of work expert who contributes its ongoing study as an advisor to Deloitte, VP of Insights & Impact at Gloat, Adjunct Professor at Columbia Business School [my old job ;-)], and author of books including "Work Disrupted," helps us understand how and why we should be recruiting internally. The bridge is not too far, but we do need to make the effort to cross it.
Mastering Your Leadership Craft, Episode 2: Culture integration - evolving not conforming
Jeanine Boyle, Chief People Officer of digital healthcare payments company, Zelis, is the veteran of many mergers and acquisitions. We tap into her deep reservior of knowledge to understand how to desugn and activate environments that embrace change, diversity, even the occasional failure and focus on learning and moving forward with the benefit of our experience.
It’s obvious Jeff puts extraordinary effort in covering salient topics and finding guests that are authentic and truly care about being a positive force in this world - the insights they bring to bear are still mind-blowing every. single. time.
I found this podcast recently through the episode with Matt K. Parker. Jeff is well-researched on his guests, and it shows. He does a great job extracting their knowledge while adding to the conversation. Great podcast.
Wonderful podcast that covers important topics in an engaging manner. The hosts have the experience and skill to bring out the best in the conversations with quality guests. Each podcast is a way to continue our eduction and growth. Keep up the great work.
