Here’s a word of gratitude for you: THANK YOU!💜
Last month’s not been easy. Amidst packing in strategies, celebrations and learning around Pride Month and commemorating July 4th, you have also experienced the wild tremors of the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade, the after-effects of which you are still navigating while also witnessing gas prices soar, and so much more.
As we all deal with these new realities and crises in our own way, here’s taking a moment to acknowledge the incredible work that CHROs, People Teams, and Employee Experience Teams like you are doing and will continue to do for people during these times.
Yup, just like hiring, recruiting, promotions, and more, job performance feedback isn’t without bias. Textio put together a brilliant piece of research that sheds light on some stark realities. Here are three to give you a glimpse…
💡Women receive 22% more feedback about their personality (= not actionable) than men do.
💡Black and Latinx people receive 2.4x more feedback that’s not actionable compared to White and Asian people.
💡76% of high-performing women employees received negative feedback compared to just 2% of high-performing men.
If you sit down to take stock, there’re a bunch of things that will make your teammates very different from each other. At the same time, there are another bunch of things that make them very similar to one another too. It is these commonalities that build interpersonal connections👫in the workplace. But how do you bring your teams’ attention to their commonalities? Try out this exercise designed by the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California.
Automated reminders & escalations that drive accountability
To ensure your new hire onboarding is completed on time, Tydy lets you set up rule-based reminders and escalations to nudge people to complete assigned tasks.
🚀Reminders can be sent to new hires, managers, people teams, or anyone else who has been assigned an onboarding task.
🚀 Escalation rule lets you ‘CC’ one more team member on any task reminder to motivate completion by accountability.
To Watch 📺: Is your new hire onboarding process inclusive?
Once you’ve hired for diversity, you’re looking at ways and means to make your workplace more inclusive and equitable. And that effort starts right from your onboarding process. So how can you make onboarding more inclusive?
Well, it's all about ACCESS.
Kiran caught up with Rohit Nallapeta from Glance on Mentza to talk about onboarding customers for SaaS businesses. Why is this relevant here? Because whether you're onboarding employees or customers, there's a lot in common - be it ditching the cookie-cutter approach or starting onboarding before Day 1.
During Tydy’s first Digital Onboarding Summit, we spoke to Sandeep Abraham, the then People Experience Director of Unilever. Two years of COVID and some drastic changes in the work models and employee expectations later, Sandeep’s insights and what Unilever was doing pre-pandemic stands relevant even today.
We’re just playing the song in loop and singing along.
And this part’s our favorite…
“Tryna fake it never makes it
That we all know (can't break my soul)
You can have the stress and not take less
I'll justify love
We go 'round in circles, 'round in circles
Searchin' for love ('round in circles)
We go up and down, lost and found ('round in circles)
Searchin' for love (yeah, yeah)
Looking for something that lives inside me
Looking for something that lives inside me”
That’s all for now.
Until next time.
