HR Happy Hour 227 – Measurement and the Emotional Drivers of Workforce Culture
Recorded Monday, December 14, 2015
Guest: Anthony Abbatiello, Principal, Human Capital Practice, Deloitte
This week on the show, Steve and Trish were joined by Anthony Abbatiello from Deloitte to talk about Workforce Culture and how it is measured and driven – and how culture is intrinsically and inherently tied together with organizational strategy.
Anthony is a Principal in the Deloitte Human Capital practice, based out of the New York office. Anthony focuses on advising global clients on building high performance businesses that drive growth and optimization through Human Resources and Talent Management. He is the responsible for the Leadership, Culture and Engagement practice.
In this episode of HR Happy Hour, we cover some compelling aspects of workforce culture, like:
- Misalignment of corporate culture with business objectives
- How people make decisions
- How to harness the learnings of marketers when examining human behavior
- Putting emotion into culture analytics
- Implementing an effective culture
- How to take analytics and measurement and use it to enact real cultural change
Additionally we talked about Deloitte’s CulturePath, a set of technologies and methodologies designed to help HR and organizational leaders better understand the drivers of culture and how to better align culture with organizational strategy. CulturePath helps organizations pinpoint their existing cultural strengths and gaps, and then continuously cultivate that’s right for them. You can learn more about CulturePath at www.deloitte.com/culturepath.
Steve and Trish also talked some NBA basketball, how Trish is now very tight with the NBA’s Orlando Magic, and how Steve talked Anthony into rescheduling a family vacation so he could speak at the HR Technology Conference in 2014.
