Collaboration now sits at the heart of the HR function. A lot of what you do is cross-functional and is a shared responsibility.
Think HR technology deployment. Or, creating a positive work environment. Or, building trusted relationships with employees.
You need IT, Office Administration, and managers to demonstrate as much accountability as you can to make these efforts successful.
So what are you doing to make this level of cross-functional collaboration a possibility at your organization? We’d love to hear from you.
And now on to the latest from the world of work…
Yoga sessions, meditation app subscriptions, wellbeing day-offs, and productivity training are great employee wellness initiatives. But if organizations aren’t bringing about systemic change to deal with burnout, you’re only treating the symptoms, while the root causes - toxic work culture, lack of inclusivity, unsupportive managers - continue to erode the employee experience beneath the surface. This report by the McKinsey Health Institute has some great data and insights.
To Listen 🎧: Question your understanding of disability
You might already be an Adam Grant podcast fan, but we had to bring this one up. It broadened our understanding of disability and shattered some myths and misconceptions. For example, did you know disability is far more common than you think? Globally over a billion people live with some form of disability. And if you're 20, you have a one in four chance of becoming disabled before retiring at 65! As an HR Tech company striving to make our platform accessible to one and all, this left us with a lot to think about.
We spoke to Guneet Singh - Head of Marketing & Creative Services at Google and this conversation turned out to be way more insightful than we could have imagined! Customer Experience is a much more evolved function than EX is. And naturally, there is so much we can learn from CX’s successes. Guneet lays it all out in this conversation with Kiran Menon.
We've also recapped the key takeaways from the conversation in this blog.

To Try 🧗♀️ : What kind of a creative person are you?
This one’s an oldie but a goodie. Try this fun quiz by Adobe during your lunch break. While it gives you some interesting insights into your personality type and style of working, we loved the visual elements that make this such a treat for the eyes.
Swiggy’s new Moonlighting policy encourages employees to pick up gigs outside work.
In the words of Yamini Koganti, AVP - HRBP, “Swiggy has always strived to create employee-first benefits. Over the last two years, we observed that some of our employees were getting opportunities to render gig services, leveraging their professional skills outside work. Some even discovered new hobbies during the lockdown and have been keen to pursue them now because they find time due to remote-first ways of working. To solve this need of employees we came up with an industry-first Moonlighting policy.”
It makes us so proud to see that our customers have always been, and continue to be, ahead of the curve!
That’s all for now.
