Dr. Andrea “Andi” Simon – Anthropology at Work

Download the Show Audio Here

Show Topic:
If you were an anthropologist studying your work environment, what would you learn? What is your organization’s culture? How do you create belonging within the organization?

What is the lingo, or language, of the work environment that new hires may have difficulty understanding or integrating into? Do you use mentors and what are those mentors’ role within the organization?

When we view an organization from a social science perspective, much is revealed about the organization itself, including aspects that can make it successful and what may be its Achilles heel.

In this episode of HR Power Hour, join host Tawny Alvarez from Verrill as she talks with Andi Simon, a pioneering corporate anthropologist and author of three books, including her newest, “Women Mean Business,” about how she brings the tools of anthropology into businesses to help the organization see, feel, and think in new ways.
