Our monthly news series brings you the biggest and most impactful headlines of the month and we definitely saw a surge throughout September. This month’s report spotlights some favorite outlets that we always love to be seen on, but also includes some new names and big firsts that are sure to turn some heads! 

Our CEO and co-founder, Ronni Zehavi, shared his expertise and explained valuable bob findings on top tier publications like CNBC, and cemented his spot as a contributing author on The Next Web. That’s not all though; Hibob CCO, Dana Matalon Goren, spoke with Forbes about dating your co-workers, and how to do so in the most professional way possible.  

MSN (121M): We landed on MSN syndicated via Fortune (don’t worry, we’ll get to that soon) for the article Deloitte’s Plan for Fighting Employee Burnout: Let AI Take Over the Dreaded HR and IT Tasks. Hibob’s survey results are cited stating that employees care more about the culture and experience they receive at a company rather than making the ultra-big bucks: 

“More than two-thirds (69%) of job seekers in a different report, from collaboration-platform software firm Hibob, are turning down even high-paying roles if their online due diligence reveals that employers’ overall EX is lousy, and especially if current staffers seem exhausted or are headed that way.” 

Forbes (27M): Dana answers what just might be the most popular question on any employee’s mind after spotting a cute colleague on a coffee break; in Should You Date A Coworker? our CCO tells Forbes how you should handle an office romance properly:  

“‘Earlier in my career, I had someone tell me they entered a relationship with an employee and they got married and had a baby together,’ says Dana Goren, HR and Chief Customer Officer at Hibob, a transformative HR platform. ‘While you do not always have to report it to HR, if marrying colleagues is against policy, you must make sure you’re aware of the rules and doing everything the right way.’” 

CNBC (14M): bob is certainly celebrating a spot on CNBC this month in the piece, Workers earning $60,000 or less are job-hopping at record rates—here’s why that could be good. The article explores modern employees’ desire for growth and culture over a higher salary and quotes Ronni as he shares our relevant Hibob survey results: 

“According to Ronni Zehavi, CEO of HR tech platform Hibob, lack of career advancement could drive more workers to quit than a desire for higher pay. ‘We found that 56% of employees rank opportunities for growth as more important than salary, underscored by the fact that only 25% of employees left their previous role because they felt underpaid,’ Zehavi says.” 

The Next Web (9M): Ronni’s byline 4-day workweeks are the future — and this is how you can make them happen was published on The Next Web this September! In his original thought leadership piece, Ronni discusses the rise of the 4-day workweek and how its the missing puzzle piece to employee happiness: 

“Setting up shorter workweeks was a hot topic turned dream pursuit and now, it’s steadily becoming a reality. It appears to be the solution to perfecting work/life harmony in a labor market where modern employees crave ownership over their schedules and greater social freedom to experience, you know …life.” 

Fortune (7.6M): As we mentioned earlier, MSN picked up Deloitte’s Plan for Fighting Employee Burnout: Let AI Take Over the Dreaded HR and IT Tasks from Fortune, where Hibob’s survey results were a point of reference for the employee experience and its favoritism over high pay. In this same piece, and in good company, Deloitte’s annual Human Capital Trends report is cited: 

“This year’s annual Human Capital Trends report from Deloitte notes that, while 84% of organizations rate employee experience as important, only 22% think they’re ‘excellent’ at it.” 

Payscale (3M): Hibob hit the jackpot with a feature on Payscale this past month, with Ronni sharing his insights on paternity leave, and how to improve the time off for new fathers in How Can We Make Paternity Leave Better?

“‘The biggest challenges for new parents when it comes to paternity leave can be that they are only able to take unpaid time, there is not a policy in place, or that there is a perceived stigma around men taking time off,’ says Ronni Zehavi, CEO of HR tech platform Hibob. ‘Having a child is expensive, and many families cannot afford to live without one parent’s income.’” 

There’s plenty more bob to go around! Check out Hibob in the news as seen on other outlets:
