The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, April 1, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about the realities of the Ideal HR-vendor relationship, and this week we're going to talk about the predictive power HR can bring (we're proud sponsors of the Predictive Analytics World for Workforce). In a global market where the recruiters spend seconds reviewing resumes, it’s no wonder the "gut feel in hiring" is less accurate than a coin flip.  Enter predictive analytics: the ability to take what happened in the past and find common relationships and factors (leveraging human behavior and neural networks) to model and predict the future and report back in analytics with recommendations for the future.   Departments like Finance, Sales and Marketing are already using predictive analytics. Now it’s HR’s turn. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we talk about the predictive power HR can bring with this week’s guests: Chad W. Harness, VP of Lead Human Capital Analytics Consultant at Fifth Third Bank; and Jen Phillips Kirkwood, ADP Analytics and Innovation Ambassador. Thank you to all our TalentCulture sponsors and partners: Dice, TalentWise, Hootsuite, IBM, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent, Jobvite, Predictive Analytics World for Workforce and HRmarketer Insight. And we're big CandE supporters!

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, March 25, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about how research and relationship building win in tech recruiting, and this week we're going to talk about the realities of the Ideal HR-vendor relationship. According to new KeyInterval Research, a practitioner centric market research firm founded by William Tincup and John Sumser, HR Department increasingly looks like a purchasing department with a specific set of subject matter expertise.  HR is also getting increasingly good at managing vendors and other relationships that cause work to be done by people who are not direct members of the HR Team (employees). However, per Key Interval Research, only a tiny fraction of vendor-practitioner relationships produce extraordinary levels of excellence and return.  Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we realities of the Ideal HR-vendor relationship with this week’s guests: William Tincup and John Sumser, long-time HR and recruiting industry luminaries and the founders of KeyInternal Research, a practitioner centric market research firm.  Thank you to all our TalentCulture sponsors and partners: Dice, TalentWise, Hootsuite, IBM, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent, Jobvite, Predictive Analytics World for Workforce and HRmarketer Insight.  
Mar 18, 2015
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, March 18, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week, we talked about email productivity and a new way to work, and this week we're going to talk about how research and relationship building win in tech recruiting. The competition for top tech talent is fierce, employers must still find creative ways to entice people with in-demand STEM skills to join their company -- getting to know who they're targeting is critical prior to and especially during outreach.  According to Dice's recent Tech Candidate Sentiment Survey, at least 50% of candidate respondents said that they wish recruiters would do more research on them and their background before calling, but this is significantly down from 2013. The right online research tool combined with continuous relationship building and developing a repository for a ready pool of tech candidates, companies can competitively source the most qualified people when the time is right.  Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about how research and relationship-building win in tech recruiting with this week’s guests: Ashley Fox, Program Associate at Partnership for Public Service; and Pete Radloff, Lead Technical Recruiter with comScore.

Mar 11, 2015
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, March 11, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about the six steps to building a remarkable workplace, and this week we're going to talk about email productivity and a new way to work. Really. Email productivity. We know, we know -- sounds like a contradiction, but it's not.  Email as we know it today is outdated and was invented before “Internet” was a household name. Instead of our managing email -- which really manages us -- what we need is a better way to communicate that focuses on deeper engagement and better outcomes.  Social tools, and mobile and cloud technologies have significantly changed the expectations of consumers about online communications, social interaction and other collaboration tools. When it comes to the technology we use, we want our work experiences to echo our personal lives, while our organizations want tools with company-wide security and scalability. It's time for email to act more like a personal assistant. That's something the world of work needs today. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about email productivity and a new way to work with this week’s guest: Carolyn Pampino, Design Director of Collaboration Solutions for IBM. Thank you to all our TalentCulture sponsors and partners: TalentWise, Dice, Hootsuite, IBM Smarter Workforce, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent and HRmarketer Insight.
Mar 5, 2015
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, March 4, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about the three elements of a clear and compelling business vision, and this week we're going to talk about the six steps to building a remarkable workplace. Nice segue, don't you think? It's the people that guide and propel the workplace, right? If it were only so easy. From this week's guest's experience opening a shop a month as part of her organization’s UK start-up, she found that 20% of strategies lead to 80% of retention and profit and none of them are vague platitudes like "be nice to your people."  No, they are all practical, immediately applicable, step-by-step processes, and we'll tackle all six tonight on the show. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about about the six steps to building a remarkable workplace with this week’s guest: Mandy Johnson, best-selling business author, active speaker, advisor and executive educator. Thank you to all our TalentCulture sponsors and partners: TalentWise, Dice, Hootsuite, SAP/SuccessFactors, IBM Smarter Workforce, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent and HRmarketer Insight.
Feb 26, 2015
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, February 25, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about how 2015 will be the best year for recruiting since 1999, and this week we're going to talk about the three elements of a clear and compelling business vision. Developing business vision and strategy are difficult to execute. Most leaders default to actions steps and tactical plans and spend most of their time here. Even if they invest up front to create the vision, sustainable investment is short-lived. Plus, less than 10% of the organizations she's visited are led by managers who have a clear sense of where they are trying to lead people. What to do? For a business vision to be compelling and provide ongoing guidance, it must illuminate all three elements of a compelling vision including purpose (or mission), values, and a clear picture of a desirable future.  Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about the three elements of a clear and compelling business vision with this week’s guest: Dr. Jesse Lyn Stoner, Founder of Seapoint Center for Collaborative Leadership and co-author of the bestseller Full Steam Ahead: Unleash the Power of Vision.

Feb 19, 2015
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, February 18, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about how to become workplace fascinating, and this week we're going to talk about how 2015 will be the best year for recruiting since 1999. Consider this: more jobs were created in 2014 than in any other year since 1999. According to a recent New York Times article, employers have hired more than one million people since November 1, 2014. However, it's not all "Happy New Year" champagne and caviar; there is still an end-of-times dirge bemoaning that upwards of 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed.  Either way, company culture and transparent relationships will be the primary drivers for successfully recruiting and retaining employees in 2015. The talent acquisition teams that get this will facilitate winning. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about how 2015 will be the best year for recruiting since 1999 with this week’s guest: Will Thomson, Global Sales Recruiter for Rosetta Stone and the Founder of Bulls Eye Recruiting.

Feb 12, 2015
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, February 11, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about whether or not HR should be split into two branches, and this week we're going to talk about how to become workplace fascinating. Of course there are plenty of personality assessments tell you how you see the world. But how does the world see you? What makes you most fascinating, and most valuable to the people around you?  You're all about to find out. Over the past two decades of research on communication, this week's guest has found that there are seven different ways to communicate and add value to your "audience."  We've taken "The Fascination Advantage" here at the TalentCulture #TChat Show. It's pretty awesome. And we'll give you the opportunity to take it as well! Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about how to become workplace fascinating with this week’s guest: Sally Hogshead, creator of The Fascination Advantage™: the world’s first personality test that measures what makes someone most engaging to others.  Thank you to all our TalentCulture sponsors and partners: TalentWise, Dice, Hootsuite, SAP/SuccessFactors, GreatRated! of Great Place to Work, IBM Smarter Workforce, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent, Fisher Vista and HRmarketer Insight.
Feb 5, 2015
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, February 4, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about how authentic storytelling in the workplace impacts talent strategies, and this week we’re going to talk about whether or not HR in the enterprise should be split into two branches. In fact, one of the hottest topics being discussed at the C-suite level is whether HR should be split into two distinct functions – one that handles administration and one that manages leadership and organization.  Research by Bersin by Deloitte supports the recommendation because HR is swamped with administrative tasks. In fact, nearly 50 percent of business and HR leaders surveyed said their companies are “weak” on preparing HR to deliver programs aligned with business needs.   The right technology enables HR to scale certain tasks in a way that humans never can, bringing efficiencies to a complex administrative process that can’t be achieved otherwise.  HR needs to leverage this ability, so it can fulfill a critical role in the organization’s business strategy. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about whether HR should be split into two distinct functions with this week’s guest: Todd Owens, Chief Executive Officer at TalentWise.

Jan 29, 2015
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, January 28, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about how to manage the softer skills of your personal brand, and this week we're going to talk about how authentic storytelling in the workplace impacts talent strategies. Content marketing will no doubt be a 2015 buzzword. You create content to connect with customers, employees, and potential future employees and everything will be just dandy. Right? But while content is important, it’s not just about sharing content. It’s about sharing meaningful stories. People don't pay attention to most marketing messages. They pay attention to authentic stories, however. Authentic stories build community (think the TalentCulture #TChat community). And community includes people who tell stories by sharing their experiences, their purposes (or lack thereof) and by dreaming about a goal for the future. Authentic storytelling from leadership and employees impacts recruiting, retention and of course customer acquisition. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about how authentic storytelling in the workplace impacts talent strategies with this week’s guest: Christoph Trappe, Career Storyteller and Journalist.

Jan 22, 2015
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, January 21, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about how to maximize the cowbell principle, and this week we're going to talk about managing the softer skills of your personal brand. What rings true today in a world gone social that demands transparency and authenticity is the fact that your reputation is your personal brand. And vice-versa. But with everything so "on" and online virtually all the time, what happened to body language? Nothing actually. In fact, it's more important than ever, because we spend so much time online. Body language conveys everything from confidence to approachability; it's more honest than the spoken word. Literally in the blink of an eye, we can make someone feel quite valued or unceremoniously dismissed. That's why developing our softer skills is the new differentiator. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about how to manage the softer skills of your personal brand with this week’s guest: Deborah Thomas-Nininger, Founder of DTN Productions International-Hallmark of Etiquette, a "Reputation Management” training company.

Jan 15, 2015
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, January 14, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Last week we talked about a world gone social and the power of OPEN (Ordinary Person | Extraordinary Network), and this week we're going to talk about the cowbell principle. In fact, we've got a fever, and the only prescription is more cow bell. Really. For individuals, a cowbell is a talent or gift. For businesses, it’s a durable competitive advantage. The key to happiness and success is knowing who you are and how you can make other people happy. A cowbell gives your value to people and they love you for it. Helping people and businesses find their true cowbell, develop it and communicate it is what this show is all about.  Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about how to maximize the cowbell principle with this week’s guests: Brian Carter, internationally bestselling author and one of the best known names in digital marketing and social media; and Garrison Wynn, author of the Amazon.com bestseller The REAL Truth About Success and sought after speaker. Both are co-authors of The Cowbell Principle. Thank you to all our TalentCulture sponsors and partners: Dice, Hootsuite, SAP/SuccessFactors, GreatRated! of Great Place to Work, IBM Smarter Workforce, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent, Fisher Vista and HRmarketer Insight.
Jan 8, 2015
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, January 7, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). Happy New Year!  During the last show of 2014, we talked about how to make waves and initiate positive change, and this week we're going to talk about a world gone social and the power of OPEN (Ordinary Person | Extraordinary Network). Thankfully, the Industrial Age is gone, and finally so is autocratic, dictatorial leadership style that came with it. Today's business world has entered a new era—one in which social media has fundamentally changed the way companies innovate, market, scale, build teams, and serve customers.  Welcome to a world gone social!  Companies that build socially enabled teams and put the customer experience first are the ones with the competitive advantage today. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman for the first show of 2015 as we learn about a world gone social and the power of OPEN with this week’s guests: Ted Coiné, Co-Founder of Switch and Shift and Forbes Top 10 Social Media Power Influencer; and Mark Babbitt, CEO and Founder of YouTern, President of Switch and Shift and a co-founder of ForwardHeroes.org.

Dec 18, 2014
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.

Dec 11, 2014
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. 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.
Dec 4, 2014
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.
Nov 20, 2014
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.
Nov 13, 2014
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.
Nov 6, 2014
  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.

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.

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.

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.
