Talking HR Trends with Natal and Tom

Why is HR obsessed with getting the basics right?

Getting the basics right

Sometimes HR seems to be obsessed with “Getting the basics right”. We can focus on strategic HR, but first the basics right… We can start with people analytics, but first the data definitions need to be globally aligned.. Why this obsession? Maybe we van move faster if we let go. A discussion in this episode of “Talking HR Trends with Natal & Tom”

Can HR learn to nudge, not police?


Wikipedia defines nudging as follows: “Nudge is a concept in behavioural science, political theory and economics which proposes positive reinforcement and indirect suggestions as ways to influence the behaviour and decision making of groups or individuals. Nudging contrasts with other ways to achieve compliance, such as education, legislation or enforcement”. In this episode of “Talking HR Trends with Natal & Tom”, Natal and Tom talk about nudging in the workplace. How can you invite people, in a gentle way, to show certain behaviour?
