The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, August 27, 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 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 TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, August 20, 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 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 TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, August 6, 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 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.
