    Why Sourcing Referrals Can Improve Retention

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, October 7, 2015, from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).

    Last week we talked about the neuroscience of what keeps leaders up at night, and this week we’re going to talk about why sourcing referrals can improve retention.

    Predicting new employee tenure is about as easy as predicting the weather, even with various data inputs and powerful algorithms we have today. Most people these days stay in their jobs only about 3-5 years. 

    But one thing is clear: referrals can and do have an impact on employee retention. If an employee is satisfied at work, whose performance is consistent, and of course is rewarded fairly, then he or she is much more likely to suggest referrals. They become a brand advocate.

    And if these referrals have a similar experience to those who referred them, they will in turn potentially last a little longer and make referrals themselves. In fact, even candidates that don’t get hired will make referrals if their experience is a good one.

    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as they talk about why sourcing referrals can improve retention with this week’s guests: Jessica Miller-Merrell, SPHR, President/CEO of Xceptional HR, author, speaker, HR professional, and workplace social media expert; and John Sumser, Principal Analyst at KeyInterval Research and editor at HRExaminer.com.

    Thank you to all our TalentCulture sponsors, partners and supporters!

    Bob Burg Author of The Go-Giver, Endless Referrals and Adversaries into Allies

    in Self Help

    Peter G Goral and Cate Moore interview Bob Burg.

    Bob Burg is a sought-after speaker at corporate conferences and for entrepreneurial events. He regularly addresses audiences ranging in size from 50 to 16,000 – sharing the platform with notables including today’s top thought leaders, broadcast personalities, Olympic athletes and political leaders including a former United States President.

    Although for years he was best known for his book Endless Referrals, over the past few years it’s his business parable, The Go-Giver (coauthored with John David Mann) that has captured the heart and imagination of his readers. It shot to #6 on The Wall Street Journal’s Business Bestsellers list just three weeks after its release and reached #9 on BusinessWeek’s. It’s been translated into 21 languages, and it’s his fourth book to sell over 250,000 copies.

    Bob believes his new book, Adversaries into Allies: Win People Over Without Manipulation or Coercion is by far his most important work yet.

    Is Google About to Slap Your Site? and...Referrals Made Easy And Automatic

    in Business

    (learn more about the coming Google algorithm change- check out Karen's site here: http://autopilotonlinesuccess.com/)


    Segment one of Heath's show asks the question:

    Are you about to experience a big, fat "Google slap?"  

    Silicon Valley web designer and developer Karen Sielski says, "Yes.. unless your website is mobile friendly."  

    Many business owners could see the website rankings they've worked so hard to achieve tank overnight. Google  has decided to penalize those sites it deems unfriendly to smart phones, tablets, and other mobile devices.  This could have a devastating effect, especially on those who sell their wares online or who rely on search to drive customers to their businesses.

    Karen will also discuss the importance of creating sites that are aesthetically pleasing AND track well in search, and how to have sites that look like they cost THOUSANDS, while only spending HUNDREDS.

    What is the #1 Complaint of Business Customers?... Feeling as if businesses don't really care about them...

    Part 2 of the show continues our theme of personalizing the digital age- automating without losing that human touch.  Heath welcomes Carl Maerz, COO of the innovative referral automation company Rocket Referrals.  Carl will talk about why database marketing is so critical to achieve success in your business, and how you can automate the process without losing your humanity.  

    Letting your clients know how different you are by showing your genuine concern is the first step in creating a referral process that really works.

    Breaking the silence of child trafficking

    Voice for the Voiceless



    A platform where victims and survivors of child sex slavery and rapes, are encouraged to break their silence, to put an end to the satanic rituals in public service

    Victims do not have any voice, fair justice system, remedy, rehabilitation or compensation system.

    This platform gives all victims a voice, empowerment and practical referrals to improve public services.

    Ruby Akhtar has helped rescue thousands of child brides all over the world, trafficked through embassies and airports with fake age on passports and used in child prostitution in the UK and globally.  

    Now she is doing a Criminal Law degree to catch up with her education lost through the child marriage at age 12 to an English paedophile living in Ireland, Bangor, age 34, so she can change the laws to stop the trafficking of humans.

    Ruby and her siblings were abused in St Mary's Catholic convent school in Pakistan, from where she was trafficked.

    Dr Ramona is a victim of Sharia Law bigamy in the UK.  She was married to a man in the UK
