    Carol Harnett, president of the Council for Disabiilty Awareness, will talk through benefits, retirement and investment options with Jennifer Fitgerald, CEO and Co-Founder of Policy Genius and financial planner, Mary Beth Storjohann (a paid spokesperson for the CDA), of Workable Wealth.

    Employee or Contractor? Kevin and Jeff on TBFS Radio

    in Business

    Join Kevin Hunter, David Ford, Jeff O'Brien, and Allyson Lindstrom on The Business Forum Show. Airing weekly, Monday thru Friday at 6pm,

    Have you ever made the mistake of classifying an employee as a contractor? Did you realize there can be stiff penalties and even legal action to face when this mistake is made? On today's show, Kevin Hunter and Jeff O'Brien will discuss the 20 factors published by the IRS, and how some employers get themselves into trouble by classifying employees as contractors.

    Have you discovered the keys to your success in business? Unfortunately, most business people haven't figured out what they need to do to increase their odds of success. This explains why 40% of the 1,000,000 people who start a business venture each year end of failing in the first 12 months. 80% end up failing before 5 years, and 96% never see a 10 year anniversary in business. Would you start a business if you knew your chances of success were only 4%?

    Keys to Success in Business

    1. Have Clear, Written, Goals and Objectives.

    2. Have a solid Strategic Plan - the "How to accomplish your goals"

    3. Step outside your Comfort Zone

    4. Get an outside influence involved in your business.

    The keys or steps outlined above sound simple, but establishing them and getting it right is not. Join us each week day as we talk about all the issues and challenges business people face, and how you can effectively implement and use the four keys to give you a 75-80% chance of success in anything you do.

    The #TChat Anniversary Show: Enabling the Employee-Employer Social Contract

    in Business

    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.
