Leath HR Group | HR Nightmares Podcast September 28, 2023 5:28 pm

Remember when Human Resources was seen as the dreaded 'policy police'? Those days are long gone. In this episode, Lisa Leath, Amy Conway, and Beth Looney, with their combined 60 years of experience, reflect on how they've transformed HR practices over the last two decades, reshaping the way business leaders perceive 'good HR.'

The discussion starts by reminiscing about the old days when HR was primarily responsible for hiring and firing, often cast as corporate enforcers. They each entered the HR industry from different paths – some through education and others through practical experience. Together, they explore what's most essential in meeting the workforce needs of today and what constitutes an effective HR function.

But that's not all! The ladies dive into the world of HR job titles. From the traditional 'Human Resources' and its predecessor 'Personnel' to the newest trendsetting, 'People and Culture' or 'People Operations' titles, they discuss whether these new names are just fancy rebranding or if they signal a deeper shift in HR's role.

To wrap up, the episode tackles two juicy audience questions related to CEOs:

1. "My co-worker is a close friend of the CEO's girlfriend and behaves as if she can do no wrong. We feel bullied by her. What steps should we take?"
2. "How can I effectively manage accommodation requests and support an employee's mental health when their provider advises against meetings with the CEO due to anxiety?"

Tune in to discover Lisa, Amy, and Beth’s insightful advice and engaging discussion on these HR and workplace topics. Whether you're an HR professional or just curious about the evolution of HR practices, this episode offers valuable insights.

Ever wondered what Gen Z wants in the workplace? What about their motivations? Or how you can attract them to your business? Well, you’re in luck! We’ve got two Gen Z-ers behind the mics this week to share their firsthand experiences and opinions. Our guest host, Gabbi Plumez is joined by co-hosts Amy Conway, and Beth Looney and our special guest, Michael Cooper, Senior Associate Advisor with Marsh McLennan Agency, LLC for a discussion about the five generations in the workplace. Yes, there are five! Gen Z refers to the generation that was born between 1997-2012, following millennials with some of the oldest finishing college by 2020 and have been the new kids on the block at work!
 
In this episode, we explore the fascinating dynamics of the multi-generational workplace, delving into the unique perspective of Gen Z. Join us as we break down common stereotypes, decipher how Gen Z thinks differently about work and career, explore the benefits of reverse mentorship, uncover the communication styles between generations (Hint: Gen Z wants feedback, all the time.), and reveal actionable strategies for businesses to stand out in an era shaped by social media and creative outlets.
