In Episode 4 of THIS IS HR, Jessica Lee (VP of Brand Talent, Marriott) is joined by Tim Sackett (President of HRU) and Kris Dunn (CHRO at Kinetix) for a discussion of industry news that only true HR pros could love.
The gang covers:
—Shots fired in pay equity between the USA Women’s National Soccer team and the US Soccer Federation, which have different talking points when comparing total comp of the USA Men’s and USA Women’s National Soccer Teams (3:19).
—A Iowa state Director of Human Services gets canned for broad use of 2Pac lyrics in his management style, which begs the gang to wonder aloud how much 2Pac is too much if you’re trying to lead a department of public servants… in Iowa (18:40).
—A new productivity study is out and has some interesting outcomes related to which days are the most productive (22:15). The gang has issues with some of the findings, including that Thursdays suck.
KD closes it out by forgoing the mailbag and forcing the JLee and Tim to pick a single 2Pac song that most represents their management style, which includes the awkward reading of rap lyrics to defend said favorite 2Pac songs (28:53)
Just another day in the office at THIS IS HR.
