"But What About Your Benefits?", Says Everyone, Everywhere
The hosts of Honest HR begin 2023 by welcoming Monique Akanbi as a new voice to the podcast, and give a fond farewell to one of their own, Gloria Sinclair Miller. Amid talent scarcity, the benefits that employers offer their employees have emerged as a key differentiator in attracting and retaining talent. In this episode of Honest HR, Amber, Monique and Wendy discuss the importance of expanding the benefits organizations typically offer and consider more imaginative employee benefits you may not have previously considered.

On September 12, 2019, the host of Seasons 1 and 2 of Honest HR, and our beloved friend and colleague, Callie Zipple passed away. Callie left her mark on all who knew her and certainly on the followers of Honest HR. We are honored to continue her legacy.
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU.
Tell us what you’d like to hear next from our hosts on future episodes and any other feedback. As we like to say, nothing's off the table!
As our listeners you know Callie was wise beyond her years, extraordinarily passionate and full of life. Callie pursued big ideas relentlessly, she was brave and authentic and brought that to every episode of Honest HR. Her ability to connect with people through episode recordings was not surprising, she was the type of person that made friends everywhere she went. I recently went through her Instagram posts and found one from New Year’s this year. She wrote, “I’m committing to NOT WAITING to tell people how great they are; how much they have impacted my life; when they make me smile; that they matter.”
I don’t assume to know what Callie would want, but when I saw this post I thought, I bet this is something Callie would say on Honest HR. To honor Callie, I’d suggest we all take this good advice.
