There is no denying that we have reached an era of digital disruption. In the workplace, many CHRO’s are beginning to see the effect of digital disruption through a changing employment style. There is a new workforce rising through the “gig economy” (also known as contingent work, sharing economy, agile talent, non-traditional work relationships, or alternate forms of employment). Gig Economy companies include Uber, Airbnb, Lyft, UpCounsel, Instacart, and TaskRabbit. The rapid growth of the gig economy represents one of the most significant and all-encompassing challenges faced by human resources professionals. The fundamental challenge for HR leaders is demonstrating the agility to lead the change in culture, programs, processes, and policies originally designed for work completed by full-time employees to a new era where more of the work is being completed by contingent workers (also referred to as gigsters, free agents, temporary help, agency workers, on-call workers, contract workers, independent contractors, or freelancers).
To gather some perspective, we decided to reach out to Nick Horney, Ph.D., the founder and principal at Agility Consulting. In addition to leading the Leadership Agility Practice, he has published numerous books on agility and change management and recently published an article on this very topic in HRPS.
Talent Talk Episode 4
This episode is focused on The Future of Leading – Is Bottom up Listening the Answer?
Employees are bringing new attitudes, ideas, values and expectations with them into the workplace. These are all getting passed up to managers, who are being forced to adapt in order to attract and retain top talent, and managers in turn are passing it up to the organization, and in some cases driving broad-based change across the entire company. So we wanted to find out, are we seeing a complete reversal from top-down to bottom-up? Are the demands of employees causing a shift in the way leaders lead and/or organizations operate?
To gather some perspective, we decided to reach out to an expert in the field of Organizational Health and a great friend of SBCo. As the President of Table Group Consulting, Jeff Gibson has responsibility for managing the global consulting organization as well as new business develop and all aspects of client service. Whether he’s working with a CEO and his/her leadership team, addressing hundreds of senior executives during a conference or simply counseling a client over the phone, Jeff brings his passion, enthusiasm and contagious optimism for organizational health to every client he touches. His clients span a broad spectrum of industries, including technology, financial services and health care. Beyond his work consulting, Jeff has been instrumental in the development and refinement of The Table Group’s original methodologies and subsequent books authored by Patrick Lencioni.

The Future - 5 Trends shaping the Workforce
In this episode, we are tackling 5 trends of the future: New Behaviors, Technology, The Millennial Workforce, Mobility, and Globalization.
One of the ways S. Benjamins & Co. is getting more active in preparing our community for these future trends is through our HRoundtable group here in Southern California. We thought it would only be fitting to have the founder and visionary behind the HRoundtable, Sherry Benjamins, talk a little bit about how this group is tackling these trends.
In this episode, we will discuss:
