#TChat Radio is all new on Tuesday, February 26, 2013, at 7:30 pm ET (4:30 pm PT). We've recently made the business case for the unemployed and we've helped to further humanize brands. Now the Internet's collaborative interconnectivy empowers us all to own our online presence, our personal branding, our development, our successes and of course, our painful failures. And own them we must. This new level of social transparency presents a peer-vetted playing field unprecedented in the world of work. We continue to learn from one another, mentor one another, give it to each other straight whether we live in the same town our across the globe. Inject a little branded entertainment and you've potentially got something crazy good on your hands. Queue the wildly popular recruiting show called Top Recruiter, The Competition Miami Reality Show. Creator and executive producer Chris LaVoie brought together savvy recruiter pros and pitted them against one another with a variety of talent acquisition tasks, all in the name of helping professionals find promising employment. This week on TalentCulture's #TChat Radio and Twitter #TChat, we’re going to discuss the good and the bad of putting such an important topic under the hyper-reality TV camera lens. Join co-creators and hosts, Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman and their informative expert guests: - Chris LaVoie (@TopRecruiterTV), creator and executive producer of Top Recruiter, The Competition Miami Reality Show - Rayanne Thorn (@Ray_anne), VP of communications and branding for Evenbase US and one of the judges from Top Recruiter season 1 This will be a hit show in and of itself, so we hope to see you here!

Let’s demystify “brand humanization.” It’s a nice-sounding term, fluffy and a little sweet, but we need to figure out exactly what it stands for and how to make brand humanization happen. Social media facilitates the humanization of brands, making them seem more accessible to customers and candidates alike, but things can get messy really fast and the result doesn’t necessarily equal brand humanization. It's just, well, a marketing mess. When combining these two ingredients can you breathe true transparent life into brands? This week on TalentCulture #TChat, we’re going to look into what that looks like and build the case for giving brands vibrancy and a human dimension. For reals. Join co-creators and hosts, Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman and their informative expert guest:? Jamie Notter (@JamieNotter) -- Consultant, Speaker and Author at JamieNotter.com. His latest book is called Humanize: How People-Centric Organizations Succeed in a Social World. This will be a great show, so we hope to see you here!

#TChat Radio is all new on Tuesday, February 12, 2013, at 7:30 pm ET (4:30 pm PT). There’s just too many of them; there are 4.8 million people who are known as "the long-term unemployed” according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. These are people who have been out of work for 27 weeks or more, and in fact make up almost 40 percent of all unemployed people. The current average period a person in the U.S. stays unemployed is about 40 weeks, which is just way too long. Employers who are hiring won’t hire them and states like New Jersey, Oregon and the District of Columbia passed laws in 2011 and 2012 so employers couldn’t discriminate against the unemployed. There was also a bill in California for the same law but it was vetoed by the Governor. What to do? Should we further legislate who we can or can’t hire? Should the unemployed be given a fair shake if they do everything in their power to remain relevant and up-to-date with skills through contracting and volunteering? Jobs don’t appear magically, so who and what creates them? This week’s #TChat explores this continuing conundrum on what both the employers can and should do and what the unemployed can and should do to make their business case and close the gaps.

Grossman and their informative expert guests: Dr. Janice Presser (@DrJanice), CEO and a Principal of The Gabriel Institute, and architect of the underlying technology that powers Teamability™.

#TChat Radio is all new on Tuesday, February 5, 2013, at 7:30 pm ET (4:30 pm PT). You know the story. Once upon a time, companies courted new talent with the promise of a lifelong relationship. “Work” meant employment and job security for years, if not decades. But the romance has died, and for better or worse, we are so over it. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, an estimated 40% of all U.S. workers currently operate on a part-time or contract basis. And as Bersin by Deloitte says, “The contingent workforce is now a permanent fixture, so many elements of talent management, recruiting and engagement are being extended to these mobile “free agents.” Really? Just how well are companies rising to the occasion in this “highly scalable” new world order they’ve created? Are contractors still considered “second-class citizens” in most corporate settings? What’s being done by leading-edge companies to ensure that contingent workers fit into the culture and engage with the organization? During this week’s #TChat Radio and Twitter #TChat, we'll tackle these questions and more by taking perspectives from the enterprise and the individual contributor.

Grossman and their informative expert guests: Greta Roberts (@gretaroberts), CEO at Talent Analytics Corp., the leader linking “raw talent” with business performance using analytics.
