    Spud Software - More Than Just Software

    in Technology

    Software – a set of instructions that make devices perform tasks. It sounds really simple. In reality, it’s likely not, unless of course, you wrote the program. On June 2nd, 2015, host Melissa Birnie will speak with Derek Sommer, President of Spud Software. Spud Software was started in a basement in Grand Blanc, Michigan in 1997 and would catch the attention of the likes of General Motors and MSX International and, after completing several successful large scale projects, would develop a reputation for delivering high quality solutions at competitive prices. Almost 20 years later, Spud Software has worked with more than 200 clients and has established itself as a leader in the industry specializing in programming, database and software development. Join Melissa and Derek as they discuss the challenges Derek encountered as an entrepreneur in the software industry (his wife Gretchen is an entrepreneur, too!), learn about the variety of services Spud Software offers (SaaS, Project Scoping, Software Prototyping, Staff Augmentation, Tier 2 Support, Mobile Apps, Web Services and Custom Programming), and the talent necessary to make it all work.

    Adopting Social Software for Workforce Collaboration and Communication

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, April 8, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT).


    Last week we talked about the predictive power HR can bring, and this week we're going to talk about the adoption of social software for workforce collaboration and communication.


    Social software today enables workforce collaboration and communication. The McKinsey Global Institute estimates productivity improves by 20-25% in organizations with connected employees, and the potential for revenue amounts to $1.3 trillion per year.


    But the adoption of internal social media will require a strategic change management initiative to move away from email that still dominates the enterprise today.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we talk about the adoption of social software for workforce collaboration and communication with this week’s guest: Shel Holtz, Principal of Holtz Communication + Technology and a prolific blogger and co-host of the first and longest-running communications podcast, For Immediate Release. 


    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!

    Daniel Chait, CEO Greenhouse Recruiting Software

    in Jobs

    @DHChait -- @Greenhouse -- About.me -- Company


    We're not really into talking about Recruiting Technology on The Recruiting Animal Show but I heard a guy from Greenhouse on @DriveThruHR and he seemed to know something about recruiting as opposed to software so I invited him to come on this show.  He said he'd get back to me and the next thing I know his company was shoving this other guy in front of me. I could have rebelled but I figured, "Hey, I'll trust them. They wouldn't send me a bore, would they?". Well, yeah, they probably would but I've got a feeling he isn't so let's see what he can do. My research shows that he's already been interviewed by everybody but me -- and the Animal Crew
