Celebrating the 75th Episode of the HR Uprising Podcast

We are pleased to announce that this week marked the 75th episode of the HR Uprising Podcast. Our CEO, Lucinda Carney, launched the HR Uprising Podcast in June 2019 as an inclusive forum to share and learn. Since it’s initial launch last year, the podcast has reached over 52,000 downloads as well as hitting No.1 in the Apple Podcast Business Charts.

HR & The Joy Of Work with Bruce DaisleyHR Uprising

In this special 75th episode of the HR Uprising, Lucinda was proud to welcome Bruce Daisley, ex-Twitter VP, and host of ‘Eat Sleep, Work Repeat’ podcast. Bruce is also a best-selling author and technology leader, who has dedicated himself to improving workplace culture. So, in this podcast, Bruce discusses his outlook on culture and why it matters. Furthermore, he talks about his incredible book, ‘The Joy Of Work: 30 Ways To Fall In Love With Your Job Again’. This episode is available to listen to via a variety of platforms including the HR Uprising website.

Certainly, Bruce is an inspiration for many. He grew up on a council estate in Birmingham and started his working career in fast-food restaurants to help him pay his way to become the first member of his family to ever go to university. After dozens of rejections, Bruce landed his first career role by taking a risk and drawing a cartoon CV of his life. Twenty years on, having worked in radio and magazines, he’s made his way to work in technology firms like YouTube, Google, and Twitter. We are incredibly proud to add him to our HR Uprising podcast alumni!

Virtual Management PERFORM Short Series

In celebration of our 75th episode, we are excited to introduce a brand-new short series of podcasts on virtual people management practices. In this 8-part series, Lucinda covers the PERFORM model, which we outline below. The model was inspired by survey results conducted with people professionals during the summer of 2020. Therefore, giving valuable insight into where the biggest performance management skill gaps lie.

Above all, this short series aims to help us navigate the people management challenges that have arisen from this curious new working environment. This podcast series is available every Wednesday between the 30th September 2020 until the 18th November 2020. View the full playlist here.

The PERFORM model stands for:

  • P – People First
  • E – Expectations
  • R – Regular Reviews
  • F – Feedback & Development
  • O – Ownership Culture
  • R – Recognise
  • M – Manage Performance

Why not take a look at our popular e-book which looks at the PERFORM model in greater detail? View the Virtual People and Performance Management E-Book here.

Virtual Management Training

Certainly, virtual people and performance management are challenging enough, even without the backdrop of a pandemic. Therefore, in addition to our special short podcast series, we are now offering a series of virtual management training. This four-module virtual training programme aims to provide line managers and team leaders with an essential set of tools to enable them to manage the performance and wellbeing of a virtual team.

We know that remote working has presented a whole new set of concerns and challenges to overcome. Some individuals and organisations have thrived, while others struggled. Above all, the difference all came down to one thing – the leadership approach of their people and performance managers. This is an opportunity for organisations to sink or swim and it lies in the hands of the line manager who may be battling their own concerns with little or no training. Therefore, this virtual training will explore how people managers can build their skills to ensure productivity and wellbeing during a period of intense uncertainty and change.
