What’s Going on With Zappos and Holacracy

Posted by on May 12, 2015

In this episode of the Future in Five I discuss the recent news about Zappos and the fact that hundreds of employees are leaving the 1500 person company as a result of its implementation of something called “holacracy.” For those of you who have not been following this story, when Zappos announced that they were going to redesign their management structure and implement holacracy, the CEO Tony Hsieh gave its employees what amounts to an incentive to leave by offering a three-month severance package to employees to leave they don’t like their new approach. I received a few emails and tweets asking me about my thoughts on this dramatic shift for Zappos, here are my thoughts. Tune in for the full discussion and tell me what you think!

The Disengagement Factory

Posted by on May 11, 2015

Can you remember your first “real” job? I don’t mean the one where you worked at a grocery, a movie theater, or a telemarketing agency (I worked at all three). I mean your first job out of college where you had to write cover letters, interview, and negotiate a salary. I remember mine vividlu. After graduating college with honors and a dual B.A. in business management and economics from UC Santa Cruz, I ended up working at a technology company in downtown L.A. I was still living at home with my parents but was very excited to land my first job.

Inside the Offices of LinkedIn

Posted by on May 8, 2015

This is a very special episode of The Future in Five where I take a look inside the offices of LinkedIn. I also had a chance to speak with Pat Wadors, HR officer at Linkedin, whom I did a recent podcast with. Pat shared some very interesting insights with me as to why they chose this office style, which allows flexibility for a group of like-minded people solving like-minded problems to come together. We also got a chance to talk a little about Millennials who make up 70% of LinkedIn’s workforce, and her insights on corporate culture. We concluded with Pat giving us a peak into her day, what she’s passionate about, and the amazing places she sees LinkedIn going. We end this episode with a tour of the LinkedIn offices. So tune in and enjoy!

This Future of Work podcast, I speak with Josh Bersin. Josh started a company called Bersin & Associates, which was acquired by Deloitte and is now known as Bersin by Deloitte.

Josh gives a unique perspective from a “big picture” view as to how these trends are impacting the world of HR and talent. While this podcast is especially relevant to you if you are a HR leader, it is just as relevant to you if you are an employee who is trying to understand how your job is going to change or how your career might change in the future.
