We are truly excited to welcome author Patty McCord, who served as Netflix Chief Talent Officer for 14 years and helped to create the famous Netflix Culture Deck. You won’t want to miss this fiery fireside chat between McCord and Glassdoor CEO Robert Hohman as they break down what it takes to recruit the best and how to cut through the HR red tape. What she says, and how she says it, will definitely surprise you.
Here’s a taste of how unabashedly honest McCord can be. Her advice for employers and HR pros:
“Two things — Lose the language and lose the lies. By losing the lies I mean let’s stop with the mythology that we still preach, that we’re gonna be your paternalistic employer for the rest of your life and provide you with career ladders and promotions forever. It hasn’t been true for 30 years, and it’s certainly not true now. We gotta stop telling it, and more importantly, all of us have to stop believing it.”
She continues, “Words like engagement and empowerment — I find them really nauseating. The HR language covers up the truth that we should just be talking to people straightforwardly. The language we use in HR now makes me just scream because not only do we make up this language and words like “culture fit,” but we call what we do best practices. The language isn’t connected; it isn’t human. In this book, I wanted to say, ‘Look, I think there’s a better way. I think that we can be straight with people and treat them like grownups and have real conversations about work that are about reality, and we’ll both be better off for it.’”
Whew! Talk about an employee engagement gut check!
