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.
