Here are some of Rob’s quotes:

I think fundamentally, a lot of leaders don’t necessarily have the information or the tools that they need to look after their staff. I think a lot of businesses exactly that, they think that the way we get performance is from the top down, but it’s really about empowering people bottom up.

if you focus on connecting staff with their leaders and improving their conversations, really creating meaningful conversations and supporting them to be aligned around expectations, then you’re just going to naturally create a circle of understanding

HR, in my opinion, is the best place, function, role in any organization to impact performance

They really should be involved in connecting the customer strategy with the people’s strategy or the people strategy with the customer strategy.

If they’re spending their time on administrative or compliance tasks, they are wasted asset in my opinion.

By listening to this interview, you will learn three things:

  1. How old traditional processes (such as for example applicant tracking) can be disrupted by re-imagining it with the concepts and technologies from other processes around us.
  2. Why HR and People management is not about software, but about creating meaningful outcomes that change behavior and impact on culture
  3. That in order to drive a significant increase in performance and people engagement, a core design goal should be to make solutions addictive.
