Mike Rude: SVP & CHRO at Option Care

Mike Rude, Senior Vice Vice President and Chief Human Resource Officer at Option Care, talks about his work, the work that Option Care does, and the future of HR.

“The future of HR and the role that technology, in particular business analytics, will likely play in the human resources space over the next few years…, There’s so much data out there – what is the most relevant information and what are the relevant metrics – what are things that really have meaning to business outcomes – not just ‘things that can be measured’.  I’m not sure anyone has the silver bullet on the ideal set of business analytics.”

SMAC

Social, Mobile, Analytics, Cloud or SMAC-enabled HR technologies are revolutionizing our industry, smacking human resources with powerful tools to support their company’s Digital Workplace vision by providing Digital HR applications which connect with the modern workforce.

We have all been told, by now, of the millennial rock stars who won’t work for us unless we connect with them in the world they rock – and it’s true!

You not only need to empower employees and managers to keep them engaged, but you must also enable them – people enablement is key to productivity.

People Enablement

HR Technology is a big driver for people enablement. Alas, the reader is likely feeling troubled with the notion of costly technology investments, a platoon of expensive onsite technology consultants, and months turning into years of project timescales that never seem to

Wellness

Each season, I like to create content to support our marketing efforts for the year and upcoming conferences. After 30 live broadcast interviews at HR Tech last year, we discovered that everyone was interested in and talking about “wellness” – I started thinking about this and all that entails for a company and its talent…

Employee Health: Physical / Mental Wellness Job Satisfaction Job Stress Employee Engagement A Strong HR Department Employment Branding Employee Referrals Supportive Management Quality Leadership

And so much more. We live and work in a time where our resources are stretched thin – job seekers and employees are more aware now than ever of the importance of balance. Wellness – whole wellness – can be directly correlated to our work and how we are treated by our employer, organizationally and individually. And this does not

Honesty and Trust Are Integral to Integrity

People who demonstrate integrity draw others to them because they are trustworthy and dependable. They are principled and can be counted on to behave in honorable ways even when no one is watching…

So, my last blog was about a sales person and integrity in sales, honesty and pushing the boundaries of honesty in dealing with customers. So what drives a sales person to act this way or gives them the authority to behave this way?

Leadership

I think it stems from leadership. I have been in sales for over 20 years; I once said I would never sell software again. Back in the early 90s, I worked for a software company that sold a product into the IBM world. They had unethical work practices and as a young man, I adopted

Beg forgiveness or ask permission???

So, this comes up a lot in life and in business. With my wife, I tend to do both really, very selectively picking my battles. In my profession, I will also do both. Pushing the envelope – so to speak.

How many of us do this? Recently I came across a professional, who in my opinion, pushed a little too far, at the cost of ethics.

My question is then, when we knowingly push the boundaries, knowing that what we have said is not true, knowing that we will just come up with a wordy apologetic email, call, or post… does this, in your mind, seem to be lying or do you believe you are simply pushing boundaries?

Personally —

Personally, I think it’s a lie. If I knowingly tell, post, or put in writing

The Perfect Analogy

From time to time, we come up with analogies on the fly that make so much sense, we have to share them. This is a great example. Not long ago, I was trying to explain how SaaS works in relation to developing software and product management.  While we’ve talked about our process in the past, it has been on the “how,” not the “why.” To explain that part, we found a perfect analogy in the Community Garden.

The Plot

Let’s start with the land. To get our garden going, we need a place to put it.  So we imagine a city block that has been razed and plowed. This is our garden, and we have opened up access to our clients, who wish to grow their own beets. We let the spinach people in too, of
