and Leader of the upcoming complimentary NCHRA webinar: Reframing Talent: New Strategies to Fill Job Specs webinar.*


Where did we get the idea that baby boomers and millennials can’t build good work relationships with each other?

Both are still learning!

Everyone should have an idea of how the data collected from 360 feedback can be leveraged to better employee performance.

If you’re a supporter of peer or cross-departmental feedback, chances are you’re already using if not considering 360 feedback.

Because it’s such an effective way to drive peer coaching and better employee performance, there are existing resources to help you build out 360 feedback questions fit for your team.

Employee Engagement is Way Down, Here are 3 Tips for Companies to Bring It Up!

Employee Engagement Summer Series_banner

Most American employees, it turns out, aren’t all there.   

In other words, the majority of U.S. workers aren’t engaged in their jobs. In its recent Employee Engagement Index, Gallup found 71 percent were not engaged in their work. Gallup defines “engaged” as those who are involved in, enthusiastic about and committed to their work and workplace.

Don Rheem, one of the nation’s principal authorities on leadership science, has a reason, and it starts at the top. Managers need to overhaul how they treat employees.

From our new Employee Engagement Summer Series! 

Addressing Workplace Gossip Without Getting Sucked-In!

Contributed by Lorie Reichel Howe, Founder, Conversations in the Workplace

I’ve heard it said that the way employees communicate either makes or breaks an organization. Spoken words are powerful containing the ability to help or harm others. One form of communication: gossip, is a killer of workplace culture. The way managers and employees respond to gossip either safeguards or erodes workplace culture.

What is workplace gossip?

In a nutshell, gossip is communicating negatively to a coworker about another coworker. When Alex says something negative about Addison behind her back that he would never say to her face, that’s gossip.

Don’t get sucked in.
