It’s been a little while since I shared an update on what I’ve been up to (other than reading books, going to HustleCon and World Domination Summit, and experimenting with working from anywhere). So today I’m sharing some of the projects I’ve been working on lately. This isn’t a completely comprehensive list since some projects are still underway and some involve ghostwriting for other people (shh!), but it gives you a pretty good idea of how I’ve been spending my time and working hours!
Blueboard is an amazing employee recognition company—they offer all sorts of bucket list-worthy experiences (think swimming with dolphins, skydiving, and reliving your own Ferris Bueller’s day off) that companies can offer as rewards for top performance, work milestones, and whatever other reasons they dream up! They were a new client and I had a lot of fun working with them on this eBook: How to Build Employer Brand Through Shareable Recognition.
Check it out to learn how socialized, shareable recognition programs are a great tool for building employer brand and maybe feel a teensy bit jealous of the cool experiences that some companies sponsor for their employees.
I’ve been continuing to contribute regularly to the Greenhouse Blog, and we’ve had a dynamic roster of content over the past few months, including some research-based pieces like What’s Data Got to Do With It? Data Set-up & Hygiene and employee spotlights on Data Scientist Andrew Zirm, Senior Director of Engineering Adam Creeger, and Product Marketing Manager Jennifer Ho.
I’ve also helped draw out some of the most salient points and trends from recent Greenhouse videos and webinars in these posts: Lars Schmidt Answers Our Tough Talent Questions, How Better People Practices Can Bring a 6x Return on Investment, Ask the Experts: Talent Pros Reveal Their Future Predictions, Recruiters Spill Their Most Unusual Interview Stories, and Help Your Company Grow Responsibly with Tips from Hired & Peloton.
Udemy for Business
Over on the Udemy for Business blog, I’ve written a number of posts relevant to the L&D crowd, including Why L&D Pros Are Now Curators—And How to Do It Well, 4 Ways to Launch a Successful Social Learning Program, and 5 Ways to Celebrate Learning at Work Week 2018.
Feedback has been the focus as of late at Zugata, which you can see from all my recent posts on the Zugata blog: Want to Give Better Feedback? Start with These 5 Questions, If You Want Actionable Feedback, Pay Attention to Who Gives It, 5 Ways to Limit Bias from Feedback, and 5 Ways Attributed Feedback Leads to Better Outcomes.
As more companies take responsibility for creating an inclusive environment for employees from a range of backgrounds, it becomes increasingly important to put practices in place that promote inclusion in all areas of the business. I explore the relationship between inclusion, feedback, and employee performance in the Zugata eBook Building Inclusive Cultures: A Guide to Limit Bias & Unlock Potential.
