SHRM 2012 - taking place right now in Atlanta, Georgia - is producing a bewilderingly large array of stimulating debate and related social media activity.
Tattoos, social media madness, Dreamworks & Malcolm Gladwell: Just some social media highlights of #SHRM12!
Today, I present my second overview of some of the key trends to emerge via social media
from SHRM 2012. These include the following: Tattoos, social media madness, Dreamworks & Malcolm Gladwell.

Dreamworks: Employee engagement is an outcome
How would you go about keeping the team that brought Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, Puss in Boots (and many more besides) to life engaged?
This was one of the topics touched upon in a particularly interesting-sounding SHRM 2012 session featuring Dreamworks Head of HR Dan Satterthwaite. Satterthwaite's talk was entitled Building a Culture of Creativity - The Story of Dreamworks.
Charlie Judy has authored a great little post on Satterthwaite's session, which turns into a fascinating meditation on what Charlie identifies as "the classic HR conundrum" (see my SHRM 2012 blog choice number 1 below for more on this latter aspect of the post).
In his post, Charlie focuses on just how Dreamworks have managed to achieve a turnover rate of less than 5% for a workforce of "close to 2,000 employees - most of who are highly sought after in their respective fields.
Dan is the first to profess that employee engagement is not a program; it's an outcome. And if you want the kind of outcome Dreamworks has, then you have to be willing to go far beyond the traditional employment proposition to which most organizations have fallen prey to. You don't only have to provide challenging, rewarding, and meaningful experiences for your people; you have to allow them to self-actualize. Yep, the pinnacle of Maslow's hierarchy.Click here to read Charlie's post in full.
