    May 11 2021
    Guest: Aimee Novak, Vice President of Business Sales at Verizon This special episode of HR Works Podcast is available in video format here: https://bit.ly/3eZgSTU As women continue to leave the workplace in record numbers, it is more important than ever for organizations to get a handle on the situation and do whatever they can to help. Today we are pleased to release the first of a two-part video interview with two executives from Verizon discussing their efforts to support professional women. In this interview, I wanted to better understand two of their efforts. The first is the Women in Business program that they launched bringing together leading female business leaders in the space in a series of intimate video roundtables. The second is a very recent effort known as The Women’s CoLab (https://www.verizon.com/about/womens-co-lab). This effort will bring together resources to succeed, both during the pandemic and beyond and in an increasingly digital world. Participants get access to trailblazing leaders, best-in-class development resources, and an array of tools to remain in the workplace and thrive. The first interview is with Aimee Novak, Vice President of Business Sales at Verizon. Aimee has been inspiring women and business owners nationwide when it comes to teaching them how to help grow their business and building their own personal advisory board.

  • HR Works Podcast 5-Minute Friday: HR Leading Through Influence

    May 7 2021
    Guest: Nadian Zak, Senior Vice President of People, Vertava Health HR represents the middle ground between employees and employers.

Today's HR Works Podcast 5-Minute Friday guest, Nadian Zak, Senior Vice President of People at Vertava Health (https://vertavahealth.com/) shares this view and explores this and other topics including why HR would be well-positioned to be an executive-level leader.

    May 4 2021
    What do poor diversity, hostile work environments, corporate espionage, and poor safety cultures have in common? They can all be found long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away. Whether you are talking about the Empire, the Rebellion, or even the First Order, the organizations that populate the Star Wars universe have a lot to learn from HR and safety professionals. I hope you all enjoy this lighthearted diversion from our often much more serious topics. I am very pleased to be joined today by Simplify Media’s own Justin Scace, a colleague of mine who is the Editor of the Environmental, Health, and Safety Daily Advisor. Justin is also the host of our sister podcast, EHS on Tap. We actually recorded another episode with an EHS perspective that is live right now (https://ehsdailyadvisor.blr.com/podcast/ehs-on-tap-e69-star-wars-day/).
