    Changing Work for Good with Meg Bear - Digital Meetup Series

    Changing Work for Good with Meg Bear - Digital Meetup Series

    Meg Bear has the same mission we embrace: change work for good. But to change it for the better in long-term and sustainable ways, we have to be willing to roll our sleeves up. Get a little dirty. Think a little bigger. And put humans at the center.

    Every organization is attempting to do just that by addressing and supporting DEI, well-being, and personalized experiences for the workforce. They're attempting by creating agility and organizational resilience while they do. And they're pushing the envelope around skills and the future state of work. Where to begin?

    It starts now! We Welcomed Meg Bear, President and Chief Product Officer at SAP SuccessFactors, to our #NowofWork Community for a fresh perspective on how to truly move the needle. Take a listen!

    Championing Change in the Now of Work with Pat Wadors - Digital Meetup Series

    Championing Change in the Now of Work with Pat Wadors - Digital Meetup Series

    “Every time I change jobs, I try to change industries so I have to change how I think.” Pat Wadors' growth mindset aligns with how successful leaders approach today's Now of Work. It may also inspire those determined to cling to processes of the past. 

    But that's not the only reason why we chatted with UKG's Chief People Officer. Pat is a trailblazer who intentionally created a cohort where people leaders can share with authenticity and transparency. She practices leading and learning openly; while encouraging others to be honest with authentic. 

    Pat believes that we should repeat and multiply what works, but don’t stand in front of our peers and parrot case study after case study of 'flawless execution.' “I haven’t done anything flawless in my life. Why can’t we admit our mistakes to one another? How are any of us going to learn and grow?”

    Talent Mobility Solutions with Tracey Parsons - Digital Meetup Series

    Talent Mobility Solutions with Tracey Parsons - Digital Meetup Series

    You know your people WANT to stay… right?! 

    The Great Resignation happened because good talent is restless, and should be. They care a whole lot about a whole lot of things, as they should. 

    They want MORE, and why not? They could have been saved if they thought you were invested in their career.

    That’s the honest truth. 94% of talent say so, according to LinkedIn research.

    Tracey Parsons created WORQDRIVE because she had a hunch. People want to stay if they think they have a future. This is why most employers are investing in talent mobility solutions. It’s your #1 retention tool, and it also creates the workforce agility you need to make smart talent and business decisions when it comes to your people.

    We unpacked this topic with Tracey! Take a listen to hear us talk SOLUTIONS!

    Talking TECH Solutions for the Workforce with Ray Nunn and Reid McLaughlin of Covalence Consulting - Digital Meetup Series

    Talking TECH Solutions for the Workforce with Ray Nunn and Reid McLaughlin of Covalence Consulting - Digital Meetup Series

    Take a listen to a lively community conversation about TECH!

    We've never had better technology at our fingertips, and that includes solutions for the workforce. We're a bunch of bright, smart, innovative people with an appetite for tech - we've shown that in our consumer and personal lives. So why can't we get tech to do all it's capable of when it comes to the workplace? Why does work still feel so.....clunky? 1993? Mainframe?

    Maybe we've made it too complicated. More likely, we're not taking the right approach. Does HR need to be a technologist to shape and support the digital workplace, or do they just need to be technology-aware problem solvers?


    Jess and Leapgen's President and Chief Service Officer, Mike Brennan, welcomed Ray Nunn and Reid McLaughlin of Covalence Consulting to our Now of Work Community. They unpacked the differences between deployment and implementation, talked about how to get tech to produce the right outcomes and the mindset required for true transformation.

    Taking on a New Events Perspective with Kathryn Frankson - Digital Meetup Series

    Taking on a New Events Perspective with Kathryn Frankson - Digital Meetup Series

    The world of events doesn't look like it did before, but what will return, what's changed, and what's BETTER? The physical event business has already bounced back, but like the workplace, it's more innovative, more digital, more hybrid, more communal and human. There are more virtual participation options, smaller meetups and watch parties surrounding bigger events, and enhanced engagement opportunities. There are pros (hybrid and digital experiences are more accessible!) and cons (making a case for physical attendance & investment is harder when virtual is an option).

    But what do people really want? Zoom or hugs? Expo halls or a virtual collaboration? Big stage keynotes to inspire, or micro-content from the comfort of their kitchens?

    Kathryn Frankson is a world-class digital experience creator, event marketer, and storyteller. She just executed one of the largest events of her career, and there's more up her sleeve. She offers insights on the world of digital experiences and events. Our virtual #NowofWork community is ready to host LIVE & IN-PERSON MEETUPS; no one better to help us sort it out. ;) Take a listen to learn how!
