The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, December 17, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about how to legally leverage social media in the recruitment process, and this week we’re going to talk about how to make waves and initiate positive change. We should all step up and be the ones to initiate positive change in the world of work, instilling “wave-making” behaviors in others within their organization. By reinforcing our continuous desire to contribute and make a difference on an individual level, wave-making bridges the gap between that desire and the actions necessary to realize bigger changes and improve employee engagement. Change can be big or small. It is the act of stepping up that makes all the difference, as well as the ripple effect on those around. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman for the last show of 2014 as we learn Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, December 10, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about the future of the employee-employer relationship, and this week we’re going to talk about how to legally leverage social media in the recruitment process and more.  Where’s the first place most recruiters go today when screening a candidate? They Google them and more, right? They search for them via social media to see what’s up in the virtual world — even if they don’t admit it (or admit they based hiring decisions on what they find). The fact is, employers can easily find professional or personal information on a job candidate with just a few clicks. However, alongside that ease come real and rising legal risks that employers must be aware of when researching candidates on a social network or through a search engine. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about how to legally leverage social media in the recruitment process with this week’s guests: Jason Morris, Co-Founder, COO and President of EmployeeScreenIQ; and Nick Fishman, Co-Founder, EVP and CMO of EmployeeScreenIQ.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, December 3, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Before Thanksgiving we talked about about the challenges of enabling a talent management strategy with technology, and this week we’re going to talk about the future of the employee-employer relationship — and celebrate the TalentCulture #TChat Show’s 4-year anniversary! We keep talking incessantly about how bad the relationship is between employees and employers. Yes, we get it. It’s bad. But even with the limited solutions that are offered today in the world of work, none has been actionable enough; we just keep playing misery shuffleboard. Our guests this week argue that the key driver of organizational sustainability is the strength of the social contract that develops between an employer and its employees. And the fact that companies can and should recruit, manage, and retain entrepreneurial employees who will make them adaptive and innovative. Oh, and it’s the TalentCulture #TChat Show’s 4-year anniversary! Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about the future of the employee-employer relationship with this week’s guests: Marla Gottschalk, Ph.D., Industrial & Organizational Psychologist and Director of Thought Leadership at Kilberry Leadership Advisors; and Chip Joyce, CEO and Co-founder of Allied Talent. Thank you to our sponsors and partners: Dice, Hootsuite, SAP/SuccessFactors, GreatRated! of Great Place to Work, IBM Smarter Workforce, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent, Fisher Vista and HRmarketer Insight.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, November 19, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about how global megatrends impact engagement strategy, and this week we’re going to talk about the challenges of enabling a talent management strategy with technology. Let’s start with ERP solutions, the backbones of many global companies. Panoramic Consulting conducted a survey in 2013 for the outcomes of companies that have implemented an ERP solution. Shockingly, 53% of the respondents reported being over budget and 61% said that the time to implement was longer than they planned for. So, how can companies alleviate these problems when it comes to their talent management strategy and technology implementations? It all starts with an enterprise’s talent management programs and processes; if the right ones aren’t in place, no amount of software automation can help improve and drive business outcomes. What’s clear is that any successful talent management project must start with a solid plan based on an accurate assessment of current programs and processes, and a technology solution that’s highly configurable and will help drive talent decisions and business outcomes.  Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about the challenges of enabling a talent management strategy with technology with this week’s guests: Margaret Wood, HR Generalist at Kay Flo; and Tom McKeown, Head of Sales and Marketing at HRsmart. Thank you to our sponsors and partners: SAP/SuccessFactors, Dice, RIVS, GreatRated! of Great Place to Work, IBM Smarter Workforce, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent, Fisher Vista and HRmarketer Insight.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, November 12, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about productivity and e-mail excellence, and this week we’re going to talk about how global megatrends impact engagement strategy. For better or for worse, mind you. Consider the fact that the world is undergoing unprecedented change, driven by six global megatrends: Individualism, Digitization, Technological Convergence, Demographic Change, Globalization 2.0, and the Environmental Crisis. And while economies around the world continue to bounce back from the financial crisis, millions of people are thinking about their next career moves. Not just thinking either — Hay Group research forecasts that almost a quarter of employees worldwide will change jobs by 2018. These megatrends come with profound implications for how companies will be organized and led. But if leaders don’t adjust their approaches to employee engagement now, they will be unable to attract and retain talent through these major shifts. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about how global megatrends impact engagement strategy with this week’s guest: Mark Royal, Senior Principal at Hay Group who organizations design and implement employee engagement strategies.  Thank you to our sponsors and partners: SAP/SuccessFactors, Dice, RIVS, GreatRated! of Great Place to Work, IBM Smarter Workforce, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent, Fisher Vista and HRmarketer Insight.

  The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, November 5, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about the business leadership cliff and how to avoid it, and this week we’re going to talk about productivity and e-mail excellence. Yes, that right — productivity and e-mail excellence. The fact is, no matter how much some of us feel that e-mail is killing “world of work” productivity, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. And while companies are losing worker productivity, employees are extending the length of their workdays, going to the office on weekends, and checking their e-mail while on vacation because they can no longer manage the volume of communication that requires their attention. This is how e-mail habits have become toxic to individuals and businesses alike.  Blech. But instead, why don’t we have a “productive” conversation around why and how unhealthy e-mail practices are sapping personal and business productivity, what you can do about it, and how much time you can reclaim for yourself and your business. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about productivity and e-mail excellence with this week’s guest: Marsha Egan, CSP, PCC, CEO of The Egan Group, ICF Certified Professional Coach and professional speaker, and a leading authority on email productivity.  Thank you to our sponsors and partners: SAP/SuccessFactors, Dice, RIVS, GreatRated! of Great Place to Work, IBM Smarter Workforce, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent, Fisher Vista and HRmarketer Insight.
Oct 29, 2014
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, October 29, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about employee engagement and the culture control panel, and this week we’re going to talk about the business leadership cliff and how to avoid it. Even with a continued annual investment in leadership development, leadership overall is falling short in business today. Even worse, enterprises are doing a poor job developing leadership talent and aren’t investing in succession planning, so these issues are unlikely to be resolved anytime soon. According to a new global study of more than 5,500 executives and employees across 27 countries, conducted by Oxford Economics and commissioned by SAP SuccessFactors, barely half of the executives surveyed said their companies possess the skills to effectively manage talent, and only 44% have faith that their leaders are capable of driving and effectively managing change. The good news is that some companies are doing something about developing future leaders, working hard to make them multi-faceted, multi-functional and multi-conversational by giving them the cross-functional training and experience. By developing the talent and skills they need, companies doing this can position themselves to thrive around the 2020 workforce. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-creator and host Meghan M. Biro as we learn about how steep the leadership cliff is and how we can avoid it with this week’s guest Mary Haskins, Vice President of Leadership Experience at SAP.

Oct 22, 2014
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, October 22, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about how to use company culture to attract candidates, and this week we’re going to talk about engagement and the culture control panel. Culture is increasingly a legitimate business concern in the world of work, and that means methods for measuring and managing it are more critical than ever before.  The problem is, when businesses scale at any speed, operational concerns often take priority over people concerns. When left unchecked, rapid growth “grooms” disengaged workers and then the problems mount when leaders realize how difficult it is to hire and retain top talent.  And by the way, high-performers can smell a poorly managed culture from a mile away. Add to that the fact that employee tenure continues to shrink and the prospect of building a strong, sustainable culture grows even more grim.  This week’s guest will share five important points of culture that all businesses from startups to blue chips can use to build employee engagement and improve retention — and extra profit — from day one.  Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-creators and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn how to measure culture via engagement with this week’s guest: Josh Levine, Director of Strategy and Founder at Great Monday and Co-Founder of CultureLab.

Oct 15, 2014
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, October 15, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about the HR Technology “mic drop,” and this week we’re going to talk about how to use company culture to attract candidates. Because it’s hard enough today to find and source the most in-demand tech talent. And with the high competition for these “holy grail” candidates, it’s not just the job that needs to stand out — your company must, too.   This means you need to learn how to build and communicate a company culture that attracts the best tech pros. Period. You need to develop a work environment that most appeals to in-demand tech professionals,  and all professionals for that matter, and how you should effectively promote that culture in your social recruiting efforts. When you learn how to build and communicate a work culture that attracts the most sought-after tech candidates, it means you know how to identify the aspects of your unique culture that most resonate with your target candidates. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-creators and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn how to use company culture to attract in-demand candidates with this week’s guests: Jim Stroud, Senior Director of RPO Recruitment Strategies at Randstad Sourceright; and Shravan Goli, President of Dice. Thank you to our sponsors and partners: Dice, RIVS, GreatRated! of Great Place to Work, TalentWise, SAP/SuccessFactors, IBM Smarter Workforce, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent, Fisher Vista and HRmarketer Insight.
Oct 8, 2014
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, October 8, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT).  Last week we talked about how to successfully work from anywhere, and this week we’re going to talk about the HR Technology mic drop. Specifically this is our very special 2014 HR Technology & Exposition show, live from fabulous Las Vegas and complete with one of the most influential influencers in the HR Technology space, Jessica Miller-Merrell.  Fact is, the HR technology industry will most likely be worth nearly $10 billion (or more) in 2015. That’s the mic drop. Boom. A lot of opportunity for HR vendors, and great news for buyers because integrated “talent engagement” software is here to stay, including recruiting, performance, compensation, succession, learning and so much more, all of which are helping improve employee engagement, productivity and driving business outcomes. Plus, data management, social collaboration and video technologies are all still very hot. Oh, and talent analytics across the board, that’s really the big, big mic drop. Double boom. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-creators and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman live from Las Vegas as we learn more HR technology this year and next with this week’s guest: Jessica Miller-Merrell, SPHR, President/CEO of Xceptional HR, author, speaker, HR professional, and workplace social media expert who has a passion for recruiting, training, and all things social media.

Oct 1, 2014
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, October 1, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about empowering HR and the hiring process, and this week we’re going to talk about empowering your world of work wherever you work. Because we can work from anywhere today. Some of us anyway. While there are no definitive statistics, last year a CBS News poll revealed that 24% of workers telecommuted regularly for their jobs. (How many in their pajamas you ask? Probably more than you think.) Could be more, could be less, but the reality is that many more full-time, part-time and contract workers are not only working from home, they’re successfully working from anywhere. Whatever the remote mix, how to do it right, what to consider before you make the “workshift,” and what technologies you’ll need to perform better, all need to be addressed. Today’s realities include: what it takes to run a meeting from a coffee shop, managing a Skype call from 35,000 feet aboard an airplane, and juggling the demands of a domestic situation while you’re working at home all day.  Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-creators and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about how to successfully work from anywhere with this week’s guest: Simon Salt, six-year workshifting veteran, photographer, writer, speaker and author of Out of Office.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, September 24, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about the ROI of workplace transparency and the race for talent, and this week we’re going to talk about empowering HR and the hiring process. HR carries the talent torch everyday. It’s responsible for recruiting, hiring, training and engaging their organization’s most important asset – the people.  Unfortunately due to increasing corporate complexity and a constantly changing regulatory environment (not to mention a tightening corporate budget), HR has had little choice but to spend its limited time administering process first, and engaging people second.  HR technologies today are supposed to free HR from routine administration, while helping them keep their organization compliant. Ultimately, it’s about empowering them to deliver a more productive and engaged workforce starting with the hiring process.  Empowering HR from day one is the ultimate outcome, which in turn creates a productive and engaging day one for the candidate and co-workers alike. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-creators and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about empowering HR and the hiring process with this week’s guest: Todd Owens, CEO at TalentWise.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, September 17, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about how millennials aren’t as different as companies think, and this week we’re going to talk about the ROI of workplace transparency and the race for talent. If you’re of a certain age, you may remember reading comic books and seeing advertisements for X-ray vision glasses, giving you the ability to see through, well, anything. That fantasy of old is a reality today for employers, employees and candidates alike, with social media and world of work review sites giving anyone the ability to “see through” company walls as much as they can see into candidates’ backgrounds. That’s critical in the constant race to attract and keep talent because we continuously market and sell each other blue sky, when all the while storm clouds brew and burst at a moment’s notice, grounding trust’s feeble flight. This week’s show highlights great real-world examples of transparency in the workplace, from Ernst & Young, Centro, Hilcorp and more. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-creators and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about the ROI of workplace transparency with this week’s guest: Kim Peters, CEO Great Rated! from Great Place to Work®.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, September 10, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about building legendary teams in the inner game of business, and this week we’re going to talk about how millennials are different, but not as different as companies think. There continues to be so much hubbub about millennials taking over the world of work, with lots of research around it, but unfortunately no one is taking the time or making the plans to manage them. It’s like businesses are playing the anthropologists, watching from afar, taking notes but avoiding interaction at all costs — until, of course, they have to hire them — millennials are expected to make up 75 percent of the workforce by 2025. There are many myths about millennials that abound, however, that should be addressed sooner rather than later, according to new research conducted by Oxford Economics, commissioned by Successfactors/SAP. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-creator and co-host Meghan M. Biro as we learn more about why we misunderstand millennials and how we should change that with this week’s guests: Jacob Morgan, author of “The Future of Work” and Co-Founder of Chess Media Group; Dr. Karie Willyerd, SVP Learning & Social Adoption at SuccessFactors, an SAP Company; and Christa Manning, Senior Vice President of Research at Horses for Sources (HfS). Thank you to all our sponsors and partners including SAP/SuccessFactors, Red Branch Media and HRmarketer Insight.

The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about why HR pros need to support each other and help each other thrive, and this week we’re going to talk about people, performance and building legendary teams. In two months’ time, we’ll be cheering for our favorite players and teams during the baseball Fall Classic, these will be legendary teams that have been performance focused to drive winning outcomes. In business, the same is true. Focusing on people and their performance is what drives better outcomes for business. When your people win, they feel more capable and confident, translating into happy people. They are then more likely to be candid in communicating and advancing the business and driving innovation. Businesses that excel focus on their employee-customers first. Allowing employees to reach their potential as they drive results for any and all shareholders, and of course, their paying customers. Join TalentCulture #TChat Shows co-creators and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about people, performance and building legendary teams with this week’s guest: Patrick Antrim, an author, speaker, entrepreneur, leadership coach and CEO. Patrick is also a pro baseball mentor and a former New York Yankee, and his leadership & coaching firm, LegendaryTeams.com, is focused on winning in life and business.

The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about how we can identify, survive, or leave a poor company culture, and this week we’re going to talk about why HR pros need to support each other and help each other thrive. HR professionals spend a lot of time taking care of the people within their organizations, but so many fall short on supporting themselves and others with the HR space? In some ways it's like the cobbler is good at his job but forgets to make shoes for his own kids. Unfortunately HR can be an obstacle, not a conduit to accomplishing things for the organization, the employees or each other. Practitioners are focused on jobs versus careers. Beyond certification (controversial as it is now), HR pros don’t take enough time to network and help one another, but they can and should. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about how HR pros need to support each other and help each other thrive with this week’s guests: Keith Bogen, HR pro and chief networking officer of Whine & Dine Networking; Ed Han, wordsmith with a passion for networking and helping people put their professional best foot forward, especially on LinkedIn.

The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about how data analyses can help companies understand and measure company culture, and this week we’ll extend that conversation to how to survive a poor company culture. Of course company culture and cultural fit have a huge impact on day-to-day happiness. Being able to identify when a culture is turning bad, and what we can do about it, are obviously critical skills for managing our career happiness. Culture originates with leadership values and the core business mission, and then flows from the people inside an organization do with all of that, and eventually with what meaning is attached to all those continuously evolving behaviors. When the accepted collective behaviors lead to conflict and strife, we’ve got a bad culture on our hands. Lots of things that can create a bad culture, but all of them can be summed up by three factors we’re going to discuss this week on the show. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about how to identify, survive, or leave a poor company culture with this week’s guests: Anuj Shah, Co-Founder of Traba; and Michael Flynn, Head of Marketing at Traba. Traba mentors know how companies choose candidates and walk you through the best way to tell your story for landing interviews and jobs.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, August 13, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about passive recruiting strategies, and this week we’re going to talk about how data and the right analysis can help companies of any size understand and measure company culture. There it is again — company culture and employee engagement. But mercy we must keep working towards the goal of improving it. According to Strategy& of PwC, 96% of employees have stated a "culture change" is needed at their company. But culture goes deeper than a workplace flexibility, pizza lunches and ping-pong tables. In fact it should drive most every aspect of business – from customer relations to internal practices. This week we talk “Talent Science” — the science of using quantifiable data to find and hire employees that will be most engaged with the company, therefore contributing more to the bottom line.   Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about how data can change company culture with this week’s guests: Brent Daily, Founder of RoundPegg, employee engagement software that increases business performance through applied culture science; and Natalie Baumgartner, a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology with a specific focus on assessment and additional training in strength-based psychology.

The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about about workplace bullying, and this week we’re going to talk about passive recruiting strategies. Converting job seekers into job applicants via relevant career content is easy when they’re looking for a job. But what about those who aren’t? The elusive passive candidate — that’s where you have to be smarter and engage them in conversations around relevant career content, but not literally job-specific content, at least not all at once. According to this week’s guest, after a 90-day case study on social media content, conversation-based content increased response rates by 54%. We should teach recruiters and sourcers how to engage prospects in real conversations. But whether it’s on a forum, user group, blog, simple email or any social network, how do we get the passive ones to start a conversation with us? Strike up a conversation as you would face to face. Talk to them about things they care about first. Recruiters should always know their market and their talent. Recruiting is only human and all about relationships. Always. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about passive recruiting strategies with this week’s guest: Bryan Chaney, a global talent sourcing and attraction strategist and Sourcing Executive at IBM.

The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about the state of HR Technology, and this week we’re talking about workplace bullying and the legal and moral implications. Wow. According to one recent study, 96% of American employees experience bullying in the workplace, and the nature of that bullying is changing thanks to social media and online interactions. Even though the employment world is already heavily regulated, one major gap remains: workplace bullying. No state prohibits bullying, unless it relates to a protected group (such as race, sex or disability). But workplace bullying has harmful, reverberating effects, not only on the victims, but also on the witnesses. The good news is that we don’t need to wait for a law to be enacted to prevent and respond to bullying. Progressive employers who want to be successful ensure their cultures are bully-free. This week’s guest will talk about how.    Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about workplace bullying with this week’s guest: Jonathan Segal, an employment lawyer and partner with the international law firm Duane Morris LLP, as well as an active TalentCulture #TChat community member.

Employee engagement and recognition, company culture, cloud computing, HR data management, talent analytics and integrated HR and talent acquisition and management systems continue to be hot trends in the HR tech space, not to mention social collaboration and video (from recruitment to onboarding to core talent management). And a better user experience to boot is what it’s all about today. There’s a renaissance of new edge applications improving recruiting, learning and talent engagement, and HR buyers are more sophisticated that ever before. Plus, #TChat community members can get $600 off of the HR Tech Conference full rate (expires August 4). Pssst…the secret code is TW14 (case sensitive). This year’s HR Technology Conference & Exposition is coming up fast (October 7-10), so join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about the state of HR technology with this week’s guest: Steve Boese, a co-chair of Human Resource Executive’s HR Technology® Conference and a technology editor for LRP Publications.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, July 16, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about amplifying the talent engagement experience, and this week we’re going to discuss values based leadership. Leadership development isn’t anything new, but it’s is clear that people today care about different things and their expectations from business in their roles as associates, customers, investors, and community members are rapidly changing. For organizations to keep up, leaders have to go first; the culture of any organization is an extended shadow of leadership. For business leaders to successfully transform themselves and bring others along with them, they must come from a place of passion, purpose, competency and authenticity. There are those words again, but unfortunately businesses are not keeping up and still use old school leadership mind-sets and skill-sets of the past. The squandering of the extraordinary potential that lies largely untapped in our employees and organizations is painful to witness, but there is hope. This week’s guest calls it Values Based Leadership, similar styles include Authentic, Servant and Truly Human Leadership. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about values based leadership with this week’s guest: Mark Fernandes, Chief Leadership Officer of Luck Companies, a global Values Based Leadership (VBL) organization.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, July 9, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET. Before the 4th of July break we talked about how organizations can and should differentiate, and this week we’re going to talk about the benefits of true talent engagement. Unfortunately talent management strategies of the past no longer work. Today people work differently, are motivated differently and are engaged differently. Millennials may have pushed all the employer flexibility buttons, but now every generation is demanding more. For example, employees want ongoing growth opportunities, workplace flexibility, tools and systems that encourage collaboration, and commitment to a reciprocal climate of support and encouragement, all of which lead to payoffs in employee retention, satisfaction, and overall business performance. The key, today, is to drive a higher level of contribution and deeper engagement through a better “people management” experience that can lead to better and more lucrative business outcomes. Companies that demonstrate consistently high engagement scores are gaining an advantage with fully immersed employees who are committing to their organization by contributing to, both, a healthy culture and bottom line. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about improving the talent engagement experience with this week’s guest: Jeff Carr, CEO and President of PeopleFluent.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, June 18, 2014, from 6:30-7:00 pm ET for radio, 7:00-8:00 pm ET for the Twitter chat. Last week we talked about the power of workforce culture and continuous talent mobility, and this week we’re going to talk about authenticity. The fact that it’s more than a buzzword. That it has truly powerful significance to both employee and employer. That it’s hard work and usually involves some risk, but the payoff potential is huge. And the fact that authenticity is an inside job — you have to start with yourself. Unfortunately according to this week’s guests (and the hosts as well), authenticity is not that simple, it’s not neat and orderly, it’s not always safe, and it’s certainly not as common as we’d like to see, especially in the workplace. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about true authenticity with this week’s guests: Jason Lauritsen and Joe Gerstandt, co-founders of Talent Anarchy where they speak on and write about helping companies build cultures that fuel innovation.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, June 11, 2014, from 6:30-7:00 pm ET for radio, 7:00-8:00 pm ET for the Twitter chat. Last week we talked about how to have a transformative onboarding experience for new hires, and this week we’re talking about the power of workforce culture and continuous talent mobility. According to 2013 SuccessFactors WFA Benchmarking Data, normal voluntary turnover is 8.9% annually compared with 18.8% voluntary turnover for hires with their first year of employment. That’s more than double. It’s no wonder companies struggle to retain top talent from the moment the ink is dry on the new hire paperwork. Plus, once onboarded, networked and contributing, every single employee is a perpetual candidate and a growth opportunity for the company at large. In turn, providing a continuous mobility experience  to your workforce that includes the flexibility to dial up and down their level of contribution, while ensuring they’re career paths are personalized growth opportunities, are the keys to retaining knowledge and your competitive edge. Why look outside first when you already have an internal talent community and referral network? You invest a lot in your talent up front and to lose them quickly because of little to no nurturing empowers your competitors, not your company. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about the power of workforce culture and continuous talent mobility with this week’s guest: Tracey Arnish, SVP of Talent at SAP.
