Join me for a captivating discussion with Johnny C Taylor Jr, the CEO and President of SHRM, as we pull back the curtain on the current climate of collective bargaining and labor unions. Why are labor unions gaining such momentum? Is it the promises from the Biden administration or the struggle for workers to secure fair wages? We explore these questions and more, diving into the changing expectations around wages and the impact this movement has on job security and economic stability.We then move into the complex realm of CEO compensation, dispelling misconceptions and breaking down the elements of CEO pay packages. The public often singles out CEOs for outrage over salary discrepancies, but we challenge this perspective, comparing CEO compensation to other high-earning professions and highlighting overlooked forms of compensation such as stock pools and 401K matches.As we tackle the crucial subject of communication within organizations, we offer strategies for HR and people managers to navigate the shifting sands of the post-COVID workplace. We address the role of unions in effective communication, the importance of understanding company economics and salaries, and how to manage tensions in a changing environment. And finally, we emphasize the importance of engagement from you, our listeners. Remember, your subscriptions and reviews fuel the growth and success of our show.
