Leapgen and Jason Averbook are hosting this interactive digital meetup to foster collaboration and insight. As physical events become harder to make reality, virtual events are now mandatory.

    Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane, H3 HR and Jason Averbook, Jess Von Bank | Digital Dose Part 2

    Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane, H3 HR and Jason Averbook, Jess Von Bank | Digital Dose Part 2

    Take a listen as Jason Averbook and Jess Von Bank continue their conversation with Trish McFarlane and Steve Boese of H3 HR and the HR Happy Hour. The conversation continues with personalization and prioritization when it comes to how, when and where we work. That’s just one long-awaited and surprise benefit of the pandemic driving everyone out of traditionally defined and structured workplaces and known, well-worn norms. But wait: just because we “went digital” during Covid, does that mean we just push things remote and online and say we’re digital now? NOPE. Remote doesn’t mean digital, tech doesn’t equal digital, online doesn’t imply digital. Digital requires a new EXPERIENCE, and that requires intentional design, a unique approach, and an elevated experience.


    And don’t miss RANT #2 in Episode 2 of 2 with Steve and Trish: We need to break education and learning if we’re going to truly transform work. Yes, we’re talking about K-12 and post-secondary education. Start teaching learners how to learn and skill themselves BEFORE they get to the workforce; form the right habits early in our learning lifecycle rather than waiting to break or form new habits once workers enter adulthood and the workforce. It’s Jason’s rant about poking the balloon to better prepare young people for work. Listen up!

    Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane, H3 HR and Jason Averbook, Jess Von Bank | Digital Dose Part 1

    Trish McFarlane and Steve Boese do incredible work to support HR and the HR Technology space. That’s why Jason Averbook and Jess Von Bank hosted them on the Now of Work, and why they had a billion questions. “When do we get to stop talking about Covid?” “What do the unemployment claims, jobs reports, and reported dismissals need to show us before we can claim economic recovery?” “How does the talent pot get re-sorted and re-mixed when HALF of American small businesses won’t survive Covid and when entire industries and verticals are being shattered?” “How did the pandemic act like a GREAT CLEARING when it came to workplace redundancies?”


    Those were just a few questions bantered about, and then came RANT #1 in EPISODE 1 of 2 in this conversation with Steve and Trish. Concerns for employee health - not just physical but MENTAL health - became very real and highly exacerbated during the pandemic. These are not new problems; now they’re newly acknowledged. It’s time for employers to do more to support the whole person, and work tech plays an important role.

    Dan Beck & Annrai O'Toole, Utmost and Jason Averbook | Digital Dose

    Work has changed forever, and it's ABOUT TIME. We were 10 years behind when it came to matching our experience of work to our experience of the WORLD. Just one way work has changed is how we think of it, how we structure and compensate work, who performs it and the employment relationship people desire, and how we think about “employees" versus "talent opportunities." We want flexibility, customization, and personalization to Work Your Way. We’ve called it the gig economy, the contingent workforce, and other things, but let’s stop separating it from our holistic view of WORK. There are a lot of different actors in the complicated landscape of the extended workforce; a holistic model and manageable experience should be the goal. Dan Beck & Annrai O’Toole join Jason Averbook on the Now of Work to talk about Utmost and their important exploration of the extended workforce.

    Susan Strayer LaMotte, Exaqueo and Jess Von Bank | Digital Dose

    Don’t miss this episode with Susan LaMotte, a pioneer in Employment Branding who started at Ritz-Carlton and Marriott running a portfolio of 18 brands before Employer Branding was even a function. How did working in hospitality force her to rethink work, what did it teach her about a company’s core values, and how did that drive her to found Exaqueo? Susan sheds light on what her company - already virtual pre-Covid - learned through the pandemic, and she comments on how brand strategies need to shift in the NOW of Work. You need to care about talent even when you don’t need them. And yes, we talked about how working moms might have been disproportionately screwed in the pandemic. We went there. Take a listen!

Best Podcast for the human element of business

Podcast host, Jason Averbook, is truly authentic in his openhearted chats about how businesses must put humans as the center of their future of work strategy (which Jason points out is the now of work strategy).
