In this episode of the HR Mixtape podcast, host Shari Simpson is joined by guest Kyra Matkovich to tackle some juicy HR questions sourced from the internet. They discuss topics like addressing discrepancies in employee information, renaming holiday events for inclusivity, dealing with condescending behavior from a C-suite leader, handling an employee with a drinking problem, and navigating a challenging relationship with an internal candidate.
- When addressing discrepancies in employee information, it's important to approach the conversation with sensitivity and offer support rather than making assumptions or judgments.
- Inclusive language and renaming events can help create a more welcoming and inclusive workplace environment, especially when it comes to holiday celebrations.
- Dealing with challenging behavior from a C-suite leader requires open and honest communication, setting clear expectations, and documenting any inappropriate incidents. It's crucial to prioritize the well-being of employees and hold leaders accountable for their actions.
