Culture is an active, evolving entity - an ecosystem, if you must - that should be measured, analyzed, and managed. Managed just like we would any other really important operating system in our business.

Brittany Svoboda

In this episode, we chat with Joe Gerstandt, keynote speaker, thought leader, advisor, consultant and sage in the world of inclusion. Charlie and Joe discuss how poorly misunderstood inclusion and diversity really are in the workplace and Joe clarifies how companies that "get it" are using it as a true competitive advantage. Saying inclusion is important to us (and we all say it) is one thing; but Joe gives us some tips for measuring and monitoring it so that we know it’s having the intended impact. Get this and more from this month’s episode of the Culture Chat Podcast. Listen to (and/or download) to learn more.

Keep your eyes on your own paper, because using another company’s culture as a benchmark isn’t going to help you create a strong one at your company.

Kyle Fitzsimmons

In this episode, we chat with Sanja Licina, Ph.D., Future of Organizations at Globant, about the challenges organizations face in bringing their values to life. How do companies that are crystal clear on what they value make sure they back it up with authentic context, color and identity? How do they weave that identity into the fabric of culture so that it reinforces and clarifies what's truly valued at every turn? Sanja has built a career around helping organizations create cultures that do that exactly - and she shares her experiences with us. Listen to (and/or download) this episode to learn more.

Embracing Truth and Overcoming Fear In the Workplace

Workplace culture" is admittedly still a bit nebulous for many. In fact, that is one of the problems we set out to address at WorkXO: we must give workplace culture a common language, make it more accessible, and learn to quantify/qualify/understand it. Human Capital Management, in general, is something that requires a great deal of customization to fit the distinct needs of an organization. WorkXO, therefore, feels like we owe it to our audience - and to the community - to share the diversity of thought on these important topics. The following is just one perspective - from an outside, non-WorkXO entity. And we're ok with that. In fact, we're cool with it. But it doesn't necessarily mean we agree with it entirely. Enjoy!​

In this episode, we chat with Jason Lauritsen, Keynote Speaker / Author / Consultant, JasonLauritsen.com about all things performance management. It can be at the center of the workforce operating systems fueling a more meaningful employee experience; yet has the distinct reputation as being nothing more than a soul-crushing experience. It doesn't have to be that way.

It's that time of year again. That thing that we lovingly refer to as "Performance Management" is back for a lot of us. And for many, it amounts to nothing more than a dreaded soul-crushing experience. During the month of January, we're going to explore that experience and why it is the world of work just can't seem to get it right. We'll also leave you with some crowdsourced advice and insights on how to stem the tide.
