The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, June 4, 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 visualize real-time talent alignment, and this week we’re talking about how to have a transformative onboarding experience for new hires. According to the Talent Board’s 2013 Candidate Experience Awards report, based on data from nearly 50,000 candidates from over 90 progressive companies, new hires are sometimes met with less-than-ideal onboarding processes. They’re usually bombarded with disparate paperwork on the first day, as well as left with many questions about everything from benefits to job responsibilities. Nobody wants to do their “day 1” paperwork from a cold, dark office. They want to do it from the comfort of wherever that comfort derives. They want to get on with the cultural immersion — and get to work. A good onboarding experience is crucial to the success of every new employee, and a happy candidate experience makes for exceptional hires and happy customers. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn how to have a transformative onboarding experience with this week’s guests: Todd Owens, President & COO at TalentWise; and Wendy Matyjevich, SPHR, Managing Partner of Human Capital for BlackRain Partners. Thank you to our sponsors and partners: RIVS, GreatRated of Great Place to Work, TalentWise, GloboForce, SAP/SuccessFactors, PeopleFluent, Red Branch Media and HRmarketer Insight.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, May 28, 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 inspire or retire leadership theorem, and this week we’re talking about how to visualize real-time talent alignment. Employee turnover is a common challenge for organizations of all shapes and size and industries. It’s an overgrown and thorny path that leaders and HR teams walk bare foot daily, with no compass to guide them. This wild “talent cycle” can create poor climates and cultures where your people are forced to scramble and hire reactively each time an employee makes a move toward the door. Focused on the people not the processes combined real-time talent alignment technology allow leaders to better visualize their human capital investment, while simultaneously engaging employees and driving performance. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about visualizing real-time talent alignment with this week’s guests: Andre Lavoie, CEO and co-founder of ClearCompany; and Matt Norman, a Dale Carnegie Training franchise president. Thank you to our sponsors and partners: RIVS, GreatRated of Great Place to Work, TalentWise, GloboForce, SAP/SuccessFactors, PeopleFluent, Red Branch Media and HRmarketer Insight.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, May 21, 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 talent-centric recruiting experience, and this week we’re talking about the inspire or retire leadership theorem. Yes, that’s what we said. The first part of this theorem is a reminder that from the junior employee to senior management, leadership is everyone’s business. When organizations are in a VUCA environment (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity), they are usually flatter and everyone must lead. You’ll learn more about the theorem soon, but until then, inspirational leaders encourage their team by example and allow their people to take the lead in accomplishing the organizational vision. The most significant contribution we can make as leaders today is to leave a legacy of inspired leaders behind to take care of tomorrow. We can leverage our skills, talents, and experiences to transform our people into leaders. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about the inspire or retire leadership theorem with this week’s guest: Thomas S. Narofsky, Founder and Chief Inspirational Officer for the Narofsky Consulting Group, a leadership development, team effectiveness, and executive coaching consultancy. Thank you to our sponsors and partners: RIVS, GreatRated of Great Place to Work, TalentWise, GloboForce and Peoplefluent, Red Branch Media and HRmarketer Insight.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, May 14, 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 building resilient workplace cultures, and this week we’re talking a talent-centric recruiting experience. According to the 2013 Candidate Experience Awards survey results, communicating a company’s culture is a key differentiator today. Focusing on engagement experiences for all involved in recruiting can also lead to better business outcomes like better hires, and improved retention. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about how talent-centric recruiting improves business outcomes with this week’s guest: Elaine Orler, President and Founder of Talent Function and Co-Founder of the Candidate Experience Awards. Thank you to our sponsors and partners: RIVS, Dice, TalentWise, Globoforce, Peoplefluent, Red Branch Media and HRmarketer Insight.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, May 7, 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 creating a better candidate experience, and this week we’re going to cover building resilient workplace cultures. Because without resiliency, the ability to bounce back from life’s everyday obstacles and overwhelming adversities would be a daunting task. The good news is that resiliency can be learned; it’s a process, a belief system and a skill set. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about creating resilient cultures with this week’s guest: Michael H. Ballard, a resiliency expert who specializes in workplace programs. Thank you to our sponsors and partners: RIVS, Dice, TalentWise, Globoforce, Peoplefluent and Red Branch Media.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, April 30, 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 high-engagement climates, and this week we’re talking about improving the candidate experience. According to a recent Dice Salary Survey, tech candidates want more than money. They want cultural fit with like-minded techs to collaborate, innovate and invigorate the workspace. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about improving candidate experience and ROI with this week’s guests: Shravan Goli, President of Dice; Steve White, Talent Acquisition Manager for Pier 1; and Jonathan Campbell, Founder and CEO of Social Talent.

Apr 16, 2014
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, April 16, 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 employee assistance programs (EAP), and this week we’re talking about how to build a culture advantage. Leaders need to connect the right set of improvements to get over the “culture tipping point” where momentum, results and buy-in grows. Culture will be widely accepted as the ultimate differentiator in organizations within the next 25 years. The focus will over-shadow strategy, talent, technology and all other areas. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about cultural advantage with this week’s guest: Tim Kuppler, co-founder of The Culture Advantage and CultureUniversity.com. A special thank you to our sponsors: RIVS, Dice, TalentWise, Globoforce and Peoplefluent -- and to our marketing partner, Red Branch Media.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, April 9, 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 employee engagement, and this week we’re going to talk about employee assistance programs (EAP). EAP services are critical for businesses. They help manage costs by reducing absenteeism, health care costs and more by freeing manager time from dealing with employee personal issues, and help encourage employee engagement. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about EAP’s with this week’s guest: Mark Sagor, President of Comprehensive EAP, and Mark McAuliffe, Global Staffing Manager for Waters Corporation.

Apr 2, 2014
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, April 2, 2014. #TChat Radio starts at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT) and the convo continues on #TChat Twitter chat from 7-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about authentic leadership, and this week we’re going to talk about how to drive high levels of employee engagement. Yes, we continually hear this mantra, but engagement is something we can lead, right now, if we understand our own motivational triggers.  According to surveys of over 10 million workers in 150 countries, it’s quite clear that growth, recognition, trust and communication are the top four drivers of engagement.  In fact, it’s critical that we’re mindful of our individual engagement triggers, those of your company and as well as your boss (even if he stinks as a boss) to create a great workplace culture.  Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about employee engagement with this week’s guest: Kevin Kruse, serial entrepreneur and bestselling author.   A special thank you to our sponsors: RIVS, Dice, TalentWise and Globoforce.
Mar 26, 2014
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, March 26, 2014. #TChat Radio starts at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT) and the convo continues on #TChat Twitter chat from 7-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about the power of professional prospecting via LinkedIn, and this week we’re going to discuss authentic leadership and why it’s needed more than ever. Authentic leadership is all about developing yourself in a manner that helps others see the complete you. This includes all your strengths, imperfections and accomplishments. We all crave authenticity and you have to be real in order to be heard.  Great leadership is all about partnering and relationships, and the key to building productive teams is to be a little more unfiltered, personal, and authentic!  Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about authentic leadership with this week’s guest: Dr. Todd Dewett, an author, speaker, coach, recovering management professor, consultant, and Harley Davidson nut.   A special thank you to our sponsors: RIVS, Dice, TalentWise and Globoforce.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, March 19, 2014. #TChat Radio starts at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT) and the convo continues on #TChat Twitter chat from 7-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about creating a “world of work” culture of optimism, and this week we’re going to talk about the power of professional prospecting via LinkedIn. Since its launch, LinkedIn has been known as a recruiter and job seeker professional networking site, but it’s been extremely under-utilized as a recruitment search and marketing resource, to continually attract, find and engage with their ideal candidates by leveraging content marketing, influencer relations and so much more. And you thought it was just getting old and tired. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about better leveraging LinkedIn and professional prospecting with this week’s guest: Viveka von Rosen, CEO of Linked Into Business, co-founder of LinkedProspecting.   A special thank you to our sponsors: RIVS, Dice, TalentWise and Globoforce.
Mar 12, 2014
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, March 12, 2014. #TChat Radio starts at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT) and the convo continues on #TChat Twitter chat from 7-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about DisruptHR and upending the HR profession, and this week we’re talking about creating a “world of work” culture of optimism. It’s too easy to talk about all the bad workplace stuff today, so let’s focus on what we can all do to make the workplace better. Good idea, right? Workplace optimism builds stronger relationships and empowers a culture that is positive for employees and management.  Managers can really help drive this and can’t always wait for executive leadership to improve morale close to where all the work gets done. Managers and employees can create actionable ideas that creates workplace optimism and meaningful work.  Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about creating a culture of optimism with this week’s guest: Shawn Murphy, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Switch and Shift dot com.

Last week we talked about the Year of the Employee, and this week we’re talking about disrupting the HR profession. DisruptHR is a new movement that is taking a non-traditional look at the HR profession, combining the best of TED talks and Ignite talks. HR can and does express divergent opinions on many facets of the human resources field. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about disrupting HR with this week’s guest: Jennifer McClure, President of Unbridled Talent LLC, and co-founder of DisruptHR. A special thank you to our sponsors: RIVS, Virgin Pulse, Dice, and TalentWise.
Feb 26, 2014
Join us each week as experts help us explore issues shaping the world of work. The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, February 26, 2014. #TChat Radio starts at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT) and the convo continues on #TChat Twitter chat from 7-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about improving the quality of hire via reference checks and better interviewing, and this week we’re talking about the “Year of the Employee.” Quite appropriate and not a moment too soon. As we learned last week, Virgin Pulse’s survey showed that most employees either “love” or feel "pretty good" about their company because it’s a great place to work — but only a quarter of them say they feel love in return. However, according to this week’s guest, companies in 2014 will focus on the top priorities of retention, engagement, and “attraction of talent,” for the first time in nearly a decade. Plus, more than 60% of organizations say dealing with “the overwhelmed employee” is the biggest. Time for talent to take the power back!  Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about the year of talent with this week’s guest: Josh Bersin, Founder and Principal at Bersin by Deloitte, leading provider of research-based membership programs in human resources (HR), talent and learning. A special thank you to our sponsors: Virgin Pulse, Dice, and TalentWise.
Feb 19, 2014
Join us each week as experts help us explore issues shaping the world of work. The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, February 19, 2014. #TChat Radio starts at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT) and the convo continues on #TChat Twitter chat from 7-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about celebrated Valentine’s Day the “world of work” way, and this week we’re talking improved quality of hire via the threat of reference checks. The holy grail of hiring are the high performers organizations so long to find, recruit and retain forever and ever. The happy "A players" who create and add to your culture and improve the business bottom line. While rigorous screening techniques and assessments are in the midst of a renaissance, multiple interviewers and the threat of real-time reference checks can and are still powerful screeners. Yes, there are legally only a few “name, rank and serial number” questions potential employers can ask, but according to this week’s guest, reference checks are still a powerful “truth serum.”  Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about the power of reference calls with this week’s guests: Chris Mursau, Vice President at Topgrading, and Jean Lynn Director of HR at Home Instead Senior Care. A special thank you to our sponsors: Virgin Pulse, Dice, and TalentWise.

Join us each week as experts help us explore issues shaping the world of work. The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, February 12, 2014. #TChat Radio starts at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT) and the convo continues on #TChat Twitter chat from 7-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about finding your core genius, and this week we’re celebrating Valentine’s Day the “world of work” way. Yes, the figurative and hopefully perpetual Valentine’s Day at work — employers loving their employees so they’ll love them back. Showing employees a little love goes a long way. Really. Make it clear you care by supporting their well-being with robust workplace wellness programs. By supporting employees’ Total Quality of Life both at work and home, you’ll improve engagement and retain loyal people who go the extra mile.  Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about world of work love with this week’s guests: Chris Boyce, CEO at Virgin Pulse, a proud #TChat sponsor; and Kevin Herman, Director of Worksite Wellness at The Horton Group. A special thank you to our sponsors: Virgin Pulse, Dice, and TalentWise.

Join us each week as experts help us explore issues shaping the world of work. The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, February 5, 2014. #TChat Radio starts at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT) and the convo continues on #TChat Twitter chat from 7-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about pervasive technology and why recruiters need to be in the tech know, and this week we’re discussing job satisfaction and career aspirations. We hear a lot in the world of work about finding your passion and being happy with what you do, but what is the reality of this sometimes super surreality? Quite real according to this week’s guest. In fact, finding your core genius is a soul searching endeavor that includes self-reflection and prioritization of what's most important to you and then brainstorming career possibilities that match those elements. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about how to find your core with this week’s guests: Maggie Mistal, who CNN dubbed one of the nation's best known career coaches, and one of her clients, Laura Rolands, a former Human Resources Executive for Chrysler and now an attention coach (thanks to Maggie). A special thank you to our sponsors: Dice, TalentWise and Virgin Pulse.

Last week we talked about the Best 100, and this week we’re going to discuss pervasive technology and why recruiters (all of us actually) need to constantly be in the “world of work know.” The fact is, IT is not just about legacy mainframes and system administration of old -- it encompasses diverse range including the consumerization of everything we touch. And if you’re part of the tech movement, according to a recent Dice Report, hiring is on the rise. If you’re a recruiter sourcing and hiring tech folks, you need to stayed “skilled up” as well to keep the competitive edge. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about pervasive technology trends and recruiting with this week's guests: Shravan Goli, President of Dice, and Sara Fleischman, Senior Technical Recruiter at Concur Technologies. A special thank you to our sponsors: Dice, TalentWise and Virgin Pulse.

Last week we talked about the continued rise of the virtual workplace, and this week we’re going to talk to one of our good friends China Gorman about the 2014 100 Best list, released on January 16. There are several new companies as well as many repeats with big growth. But one thing continues to be clear — being a great workplace is the best employer branding strategy. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about this year’s "Best Companies to Work For" with this week’s guest: China Gorman, CEO of Great Place To Work Institute. A special thank you to our sponsors: Dice, TalentWise and Virgin Pulse.
Jan 15, 2014
Join us each week as experts help us explore issues shaping the world of work. The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, January 15, 2014. #TChat Radio starts at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT) and then we continue the conversation on the #TChat Twitter chat from 7-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about why their companies need a committed “culture makeover” in 2014, and this week we’re talking virtual workplace trends. The fact is, the rise of global networks and mobile technology now makes it possible to build a distributed workforce today -- anywhere, anytime, easily and cost-effectively while improving productivity and engagement. According to Bersin by Deloitte, Telus, one of the largest telecommunications companies in Canada, has “increased its employee engagement from 53 percent three years ago to 83 percent today" because more than 60 percent of Telus’s 40,000 employees now work from home and have a supportive infrastructure that empowers getting work done. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about virtual workplace trends with this week’s guest: Mike Hostetler, Founder and CEO at appendTo, LLC. Mike has built a highly successful virtual programming “open source” workforce. A special thank you to our sponsors: Dice, TalentWise and Virgin Pulse.
Jan 8, 2014
Join us each week as experts help us explore issues shaping the world of work. Happy New Year! The TalentCulture #TChat weekly show is back live on Wednesday, January 8, 2014. #TChat Radio starts at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT) and then we continue the conversation on the #TChat Twitter chat from 7-8 pm ET. During our last #TChat of 2013, we talked about emotional intelligence, and this week we’re going to discuss why business leadership struggles to retain key people and why their companies need a committed “culture makeover” in 2014. Workplace research continues to validate that employees who work in a “culture” that challenges, values and rewards them, are more emotionally committed their work, their colleagues and their companies, and rarely do they leave. They perform at much higher levels across the board and it’s a reciprocal win for everyone.  Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about managing sound leadership and culture committment with this week's guest: Mike Myatt, CEO at N2growth, Forbes Leadership Columnist, and Senior Fellow at Gordian Institute. A special thank you to our sponsors: Dice, TalentWise and Virgin Pulse.
