On this episode of Honest HR, Erich Kurschat is back! He and Callie continue their conversation on communication and the all too relatable struggle of networking.

Finding Your Comic Book: Defining Yourself as a Professional feat. Jon and Wendy from The HR Social Hour Podcast

On this episode of Honest HR, Callie's guests are HR pros Jon Thurmond and Wendy Dailey, from The HR Social Hour Podcast to discuss networking and communication. People react differently to who you are as a person vs. who you are as a professional. They may be intertwined, but sometimes you resonate more as a person than a professional. Some people connect with puppies and others with comic books. How important—and what does it mean—to define your voice as a professional and as a whole person?Your brand is your reputation, you can blend your personal and professional interests. You're a person and a person who does HR. Key episode takeaway: "You need to be OK with your voice evolving. Who you start out as sharing can be difficult, but when you know where you want to be, and you find what you're comfortable talking about that's when you start to become successful." ----Head over to <a href="https://hr

Getting Comfortable with the Uncomfortable When It Comes to Diversity feat. Clint Bradley, SHRM-SCP

The talent market has shifted, and people aren't going to get any less diverse. There's no place for the 'if you don't look like me, sound like me, act like me, I'm not going to hire you,' attitudes of yesterday. How can HR pros shift their own thinking as well as help their business leaders and people managers leave assumptions and stereotypes at the door, allowing them to get in the headspace to have those conversations? It starts with asking yourself and others, "What is your intent?" Grab your beverage of choice and stay a while. We're over here having a conversation on the kinds of conversations that put the human back into human resources. Key episode takeaway: "D & I is a journey. Once you step foot in that journey, you're always going to be on it because you're always going to be learning more about people." ---EARN SHRM RECERTIFICATION PDCs FOR LISTENINGHonest HR podcast episodes will help

Generations in the Workplace feat. Alexis Fiocchi, SHRM-SCP

Listen to this episode because there is an art and science side to addressing age diversity in the workplace. On the one hand, it can hinder your organizational culture if you're too focused on varying generations. The balance is in figuring out what are those differences and how the team/(organization) can benefit from each other and create a positive multi-generational culture. What does it look like to allow people to tell their stories and bring their WHOLE SELVES to work; their experiences, past jobs, and way of thinking? How careers shape up is just different now. Bust out the pen ladies and gentlemen, it's time to take notes.Key episode takeaway: "As our workforce continue to change, and as our communities grow, we need to be more open to the way people think, not just how they look and how old they are. Your vibe attracts your tribe. Focus on what it means to work for your company." ---EARN SHRM RECERT

Business Case for Diversity & Inclusion feat. Jeremy York, SHRM-SCP

Listen to this episode because there's a business case for diversity besides it being the right thing to do. Most of the diversity and inclusion conversations have been solely focused on race and gender. But many aspects of diversity are not as visible. Diversity of thought has to be brought to the forefront. To allow for people to have different perspectives and kinds of experiences that can be shared at work. While an organization can value diversity, it doesn't necessarily make it an inclusive one. Inclusion is about creating workplaces where people can feel comfortable bringing their WHOLE selves to work. Leaders and managers are only as strong as the people backing and supporting them. Inclusion is what makes diversity work.Key episode takeaway: "We've never seen such a diverse amount of people in the labor pool as we see today.

Financial Wellness w/ Mary Feuerbach, SHRM-CP

Listen to this episode for out of the box thinking about financial wellness. According to data from the Federal Reserves, nearly 40% of Americans would struggle to cover a $400 emergency expense. If this is affecting 40% of Americans—it’s affecting your employees and your bottom line! When employees are losing sleep over unexpected expenses, their work is affected. Customizing any program to meet every individual need can be difficult. What is your organization doing to help employees navigate financial wellness? Think outside the box. Explore unique short-term options alongside longer-term programs. Ensure your employees know about the programs you do provide, and how to access them if they need to. Just because you have a program doesn’t mean your employees know about them! And what they don’t know won’t help.Key episode takeaway: Push past the administrative hurdles and burdens that may come with providing alternative financial welln

Listen to this episode because Comp and Ben has its place in HR. You can't have a one-size fits all approach to benefits in multi-generational workplaces. Research supports that a large percentage of Americans would look favorably at an organization that provides a student loan repayment program. But what does that look like? And how does it align overall with what organizations are offering in terms of outside and professional development? This is an episode you're going to want to share!Key episode takeaway: "Benefits are a culture-building tool that affects turnover.

Strategic Planning For HR Teams feat. Katie Powers, SHRM-SCP

Listen to this episode to get your strategic mindset on. Strategic planning should be on your radar as an HR professional; if your organization is known for strategic planning, so should your HR department.  You’ll also learn if  there is a secret sauce to setting realistic timelines for HR initiatives. Key episode takeaway: “It all goes back to the culture of the organization we work in. If we don't have support from the top down, it's hard for HR to see how strategic planning and HR  are connected.” Interdepartmental relationship management is crucial—keeping up-to-date on other departments and their timelines is essential.
