A cute dog picture + rooftop HR breakfast + top HR & Talent articles

June 14, 2018 By Tarek Pertew


Today is one of the most exciting days of the year: the opening day of the World Cup. Where much of the world that couldn’t care less about soccer actually tunes in, amirite?

More importantly, it’s also Bring Your Kit to Work Day. Here’s a pic of me and my family heading out to work. 🇪🇬🇧🇷 🇺🇸

And here’s a picture of my friend’s dog going to work (and supporting the cause):

DYK: This week we filmed at Intersection, makers of the Link machines you see throughout NYC and other major cities. We learned so much about just how useful these products are and how challenging it is to ensure these machines are running full time, no matter what the weather (or impact from an errant driver). I’m excited to share those videos with you in the coming weeks.

Upcoming Rooftop HR Breakfast: In HR & Talent news, we are very, very excited to invite you to our first post-HR Uncubed breakfast for HR and Talent leaders. We are being generously hosted on the rooftop of Peloton on Thursday, June 28th. We’ll be discussing the movement of talent acquisition into a marketing function. Capacity is limited. RSVP here.

Read: Indeed published their Top 25 Workplaces as ranked by Millennials. Somehow I find this data is heavily skewed in favor of large employers. Or maybe startups and tech companies don’t really use Indeed? What say you?

Subscribe: Every Tuesday Katie Shine from our team curates a list of articles based on a theme. This week, Exploring the depths of empathy, culture, and bias in the workplace.
