In episode 37 of The HR Famous Podcast, long-time HR leaders (and friends) Tim Sackett, Kris Dunn and Jessica Lee come together once again to discuss whether Mental Health/Wellness Technology and Apps are better for your employees than talking to a human, McDonald’s recent Travis Scott marketing success, and what TikToks are flooding their feeds.
2:15 - Tim isn’t a huge McDonald’s fan but JLee is a proud alum of the company. McDonald’s has had a huge success recently due to the success of their newly launched Travis Scott and J Balvin meals. Editor note: J BALVIN (not Blavin like Tim said) was on I Like It with Cardi B among many other hits.
4:30 - The KD crew makes their own McDonald’s packages. What would be in your McDonald’s go-to meal?
9:30 - Tim asks the crew what celebrity they think would have the biggest success as a McDonald’s meal. JLee thinks that a Kardashian would sell the best
11:15 - JLee says that she agrees with the majority of people in this study. She says her new found hobby of meditating (using a virtual service) that she started during quarantine has helped her mental health significantly.
13:00 - KD is a believer always but he personally relies on exercise and running to help aid his mental health.
14:30 - The Oracle study also found that AI has helped people at work by taking away busy work and other meaningless tasks.
16:00 - JLee finds herself getting angrier with the bad AI than she feels happy with positive AI experiences.
17:45 - Shoutout to the movie "Her" starring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johannson where he falls in love with an AI bot. It’s available on Netflix!
20:30 - KD thinks the most basic addiction is going to be in the form of notifications
22:00 - Last topic of the day: weird TikTok culture! Tim and JLee are users of the platform (KD only views them when Tim texts him links). Tim gets a lot of divorced mom TikToks and lip syncing to comedian TikToks. JLee gets plant-related TikToks and roller skating TikToks. What kind of TikToks do you get on your for you page?
