Today’s post comes to us from the executive director of The Workforce Institute, Dr. Chris Mullen, Ph.D., SHRM-SCP, SPHR.
This week, I had the privilege of stopping by the Punk Rock HR podcast to chat with host Laurie Ruettimann. Our discussion — Episode #180: The Evolution of the Labor Movement — comes at a relevant time, and not because we just celebrated another Labor Day holiday in the United States.
We cover a lot of topics in a jam-packed episode, from the emerging “Great Resignation” and “Turnover Tsunami” to the longstanding need to focus on employees’ mental health and preventing burnout. We chat about performance reviews, employee surveys, and ensuring employees are feeling heard.
I also talk about the concept of “work-life negotiation” and finding a balance that works well for you, too.
Because one of the most important points I wanted to get across is this: If you can’t take care of yourself first, you can’t take care of others. That’s true in all aspects of life and work, and it’s especially true for HR.
I encourage you to take a few minutes today to listen to our chat, and let’s keep the conversation going.
