In many ways, the success of an organization depends on people at the managerial level. Not only is it part of their role to ensure employees are feeling happy, fulfilled and supported, but managers are also responsible for delegating tasks and facilitating communication across the company. In this episode, Rhys sits down with Natasha Kehimkar, the CEO and Founder of Malida Advisors, a team of people operations professionals that helps companies accelerate on the path to impactful leadership. As a people operations professional with over 20 years of experience in global HR and talent, Natasha shares some key insights about people managers and streamlining the communication across teams during the episode. She also shares her perspective on effective strategies for managing managers and promoting diversity within the company structure.
As one of the most well-known event management systems in the world, Eventbrite has been dominating the industry for over a decade. But when the pandemic hit, companies around the world were forced to make some fundamental changes to their business operations, and Eventbrite was no exception—one such change was making the transition to a hybrid working model for its hundreds of employees. In this episode of New World of Work, Eventbrite’s Chief Human Resources Officer, David Hanrahan, shares some of the key insights and learnings he took away from making the shift to a hybrid working model. With over 20 years of experience in the people operations field (including a three-year stint at Twitter), David has a wealth of knowledge and insights to share with us about change management, building company culture and what it takes to make a hybrid working model successful. 
The shift to remote work has brought on a brand new set of challenges for people operations professionals as they experiment with new tools, approaches and methods to keep teams happy and communication in constant flow. On this episode of New World of Work, Rhys sits down with Kimberly Bringas, Leadership Development Partner Lead at Drizly, to discuss the best ways to approach difficult conversations and conflicts while working remotely. In her role, Kimberly works with leadership to identify development opportunities as their teams scale, and coaches leadership on their pain points and growth opportunities. During the episode, Rhys and Kimberly discuss strategies for recognizing, understanding and diffusing conflict while working remotely.
 It’s important for companies to create a working atmosphere where everyone feels supported, included, and comfortable with collaboration, but this can become a challenge when team members are living on opposite ends of the world in separate time zones and with a diverse mix of cultural nuances. In some ways, striking the perfect balance can be even more challenging when it comes to managing smaller teams or startup settings that may not yet be equipped with all the infrastructure needed to operate smoothly. In this episode of New World of Work, Rhys sits down with Jen Paxton, the VP of People at Smile, to discuss the challenges of managing a global team. Jen shares some of the learnings and insights she’s gained while helping Smile grow, support, and manage a team of 55 across 17 countries. 
One challenge that’s proven to be a hot-button issue in the HR world recently is the question of whether or not an employee’s location should dictate their salary. The location-based compensation model suggests that where an employee lives should influence their salary, while the location-agnostic model takes the opposite approach. In this episode, Rhys sits down with Leia Rollag, Head of People at Wildbit. Recently, Leia spearheaded the company’s move to location-agnostic pay—a strategy that ensures all employees will be compensated based on the quality of their work, not on where they live. Leia shares her take on the location-agnostic compensation model and how it can help to level the playing field in remote workplaces.
