In this episode of the Champions for Social Good Podcast, Jamie Serino speaks with Steph Sharma (@Maximizealot), Managing Director of the Human Value Institute and Lead the Difference (@Leadthediff). Steph discusses how her long-time passion for and research of employee engagement in the workplace led her to create the Human Value Institute, a thought leadership hub for human capital evaluation. Steph delves into her research of the companies who are shifting their approach towards human capital value by truly investing in their employees. Through her case studies, Steph highlights the fundamental idea behind this shift that is treating people like assets rather than treating people like resources. Jamie and Steph also discuss how these approaches can break down silos, such as between CSR and grantmaking programs, thereby fostering more collaboration and engagement. Steph also elaborates on how millennials are changing the nature of the workforce and redefining the meaning of success by placing a higher priority on purpose and impact.
