The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, November 18, 2015, from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT). Last week we talked about the benefits of a blended workforce and the staffing challenges it brings, and this week we’re going to talk about how wellness programs improve employee performance. Making time to stay in shape isn’t easy. Frenetic schedules and longer work hours take a big bite out of exercise. Plus, according to the American Heart Association, sedentary jobs have increased 83% since 1950 and physically active jobs now make up less than 20% of our workforce. In 1960, about half of the US workforce was physically active.  What to do? Being physically active can boost the employees’ health and it’s good for your business as well. In fact, research shows that workers who exercise during the day reported a 15 percent boost in performance, a happier mood and increased ability to meet deadlines. Whether you can have an on-site corporate fitness center or not, there are simple ways you can help your employees find time for fitness and support their overall health and well-being. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as they talk about the benefits of a blended workforce and the staffing challenges it brings with this week’s guest: Ann Wyatt, vice president of account management at HealthFitness, a health management leader that creates effective health management and corporate fitness programs.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, November 11, 2015, from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT). Last week we talked about how to make meetings worth everyone’s time, and this week we’re going to talk about the benefits of a blended workforce and the staffing challenges it brings. The way we used to work is gone. The days of primarily being full-time or part-time have given way to the blended workforce — those individuals working as independent contractors, freelance workers and self-employed entrepreneurial talent side-by-side their full-time brothers and sisters.  Employers are now hiring record numbers of contingent workers and relying increasingly on this mix to achieve their goals. Not only that, these workers are happier, have achieved greater work-life integration and are profiting on their own. That’s welcome news for employers and workers looking to improve their opportunities. But building and managing this blended workforce presents challenges on almost every front—particularly when it comes to effectively sourcing and hiring contingent workers. Employers need to think about — and hire — talent differently. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as they talk about the benefits of a blended workforce and the staffing challenges it brings with this week’s guest: Sunil Bagai, Founder and CEO of Zenith Talent, innovators of the powerful new staffing  model for the contingent workforce called Crowdstaffing. Thank you to all the TalentCulture sponsors, partners and supporters!

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, November 4, 2015, from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).? Last week we talked about how hiring managers can reduce the cost of hiring, and this week we’re going to talk about how to make meetings worth everyone’s time. Meetings have been the bane of business since the beginning of business time. Too many of us feel that meetings are time-wasting, energy-sapping affairs. Most meetings feel like useless gatherings endured at the expense of the real work that needs to get done. But the good news is that meetings can be places where people do meaningful work, make plans, reach decisions, make commitments, and grow and develop and where everyone decides to get behind a task.  Changing meetings from time wasting to time valued from energy sapping to energy producing, requires a different approach to designing, leading, and contributing in meetings. It means a change in direction. It means making new choices.  Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as they talk about how to make meetings worth everyone’s time with this week’s guests: Dick and Emily Axelrod, founders of The Axelrod Group, Inc., a consulting firm that pioneered the use of employee involvement to effect large-scale organizational change. Thank you to all the TalentCulture sponsors, partners and supporters!
