    How Employee Engagement Empowers the Employer Brand

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, June 17, 2015, at its new time from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).


    Last week we talked about the art of candidate engagement, and this week we’re going to talk about how employee engagement empowers the employer brand.


    Spending ridiculous amounts of money to source sought-after skill sets and recruit top won’t get you very far when your employer brand has hit the skids.


    Meaning, if your current employees aren’t usually happy, even jazzed about working for your company, then that poison seeps into the groundwater and taints the wells around for miles and miles.


    This is why you must step up your branding game and empower your own employees to evangelize your company culture in an authentic, transparent way. 


    Energizing your employee base to truly engage, tell their stories, share their experiences and engage with potential employees is what empowers the brand.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we talk about the art of candidate engagement with this week’s guest: Stacy Zapar, Founder of Tenfold, and recruiting strategist, trainer & advisor.

    in Business

    Last week we talked about business strategies that help CHRO’s sleep at night, and this week we’re going to talk about the art of candidate engagement.


    One of the toughest challenges is recruiting in-demand tech talent and how to engage this elusive talent pool.  


    The answer is the right mix of relationship building and empowering recruiting technology that helps recruiters develop a ready pool of tech candidates they can competitively source when the time is right.

    Business Strategies That Help CHRO’s Sleep At Night

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, June 3, 2015, at its new time from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).


    Last week we talked about how improving the candidate experience empowers a better workforce, and this week we’re going to talk about business strategies that help CHRO’s sleep at night.


    Industry experts and the media always talk more about what keeps business leaders up at night and less about actionable strategies that enable positive change and help them sleep.


    Let’s try and change it up a little, particularly for heads of HR state. Change isn’t easy, especially when being applied to solve business problems, but new HR initiatives are important, organization-shifting moments for a company. 


    When CHRO’s and their business leader counterparts consider a change for their organization, those who think beyond the ordinary get a sustainable outcome. 


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we talk about business strategies that help CHRO’s sleep at night with this week’s guest: Mark Stelzner, Founder of IA HR, a consulting firm that helps HR leaders transform their organizations with confidence.

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, May 27, 2015, at its new time from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).


    Last week we talked about how disruptive technologies will empower the future of HR, and this week we’re going to talk about how improving the candidate experience empowers a better workforce.


    The hiring economy today is highly complex. Even though job growth has improved dramatically in the past 14 months, employers still struggle to fill jobs due to talent shortages.


    The Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards were created to provide a universal measure of the candidate experience. The “winners” are the ones empowering a better workforce.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we talk about how improving the candidate experience empowers a better workforce with this week’s guests: Elaine Orler, Chairman and Co-Founder of the Talent Board and the CandEs; and Gerry Crispin, Co-Founder of the Talent Board and the CandEs.

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, May 20, 2015, at its new time from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).


    Last week we talked why true relationship building rises above social, and this week we’re going to talk about how disruptive technologies will empower the future of HR.


    The next 5-10 years will bring unprecedented change to the workplace and the role of Human Resources. There will be those disruptive digital HR technologies that will influence the form and function of HR in a myriad of ways including how and where we work today, how we recruit and hire, and how we train and develop the workforce.


    Not every technological disruption will be adopted nor will it transform HR for the better, but the fact remains that empowering a better workplace and workforce has already started today.

    How True Relationship Building Rises Above Social

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, May 13, 2015, at its new time from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).


    Last week we talked about the impact of gender diversity on technology business performance around the world, and this week going to talk about why true relationship building rises above social.


    Long gone are the formal protocols of the “offline” networking world. Professional and social networking took a lot more work to uncover, establish, and deepen mutually beneficial business relationships. 


    Social media has made connecting and networking so much easier and accessible to nearly everyone with an Internet connection and a mobile device. 


    In a hyper-connected world, those who are able to build, maintain, sustain and leverage their entire network outside of social, be more successful, and impact the world.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we talk about why why true relationship building rises above social with this week’s guest: Rob Garcia, Silicon Valley product executive and co-founder and Chief Product Officer at ConnectUp.

    A University of Cambridge study has observed that Ireland is fifth in the world for female economic power, ranking just behind Australia, Norway, Denmark and Finland. 


    Overall the state of women in tech and business isn’t great, but academic institutions are now seeing companies and STEM-based industries develop diverse talent pools that improve business performance.

    Why Internal Customer Service Is So Important

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, April 29, 2015, at its new time from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).


    Last week we talked about how to deal with bad bosses, and this week going to talk about why internal customer service is so important.


    When we think of “customer service” we usually think of those to help us throughout the sales process, but service must be a total commitment not just for the front line, but for every employee of any business, from individual contributor to CEO. 


    Everyone has a customer. If it is not the outside customer, then it is the internal customer — anyone within an organization who at any time is dependent on anyone else within the organization.


    This is the root of internal service. It is the understanding that everybody supports everybody else in the organization.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we talk about why internal customer service is so important with this week’s guest: Shep Hyken, Chief Amazement Officer at Shepard Presentations, customer service expert, keynote speaker and New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling business author.

    How to Turn Horrible Bosses into Happier Relationships

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, April 22, 2015, at its new time from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).


    Last week we talked about how to look people in the eye digitally, and this week we’re going to talk about how to turn horrible bosses into happier relationships.


    Today we’re faced with a difficult and complex economic landscape never before seen in the modern world. Regardless of the job growth of late and unemployment plummeting, wages are still pretty flat and employers and workers are under a great deal of strain to produce. 


    Unfortunately, a bad boss can undermine our ability to work effectively and efficiently. Poor communication skills, lack of direction, micromanaging, bullying — any of these traits can make a boss difficult to work with leading to stress, anxiety, frustration and anger.


    It’s time to learn powerful techniques for reinventing your relationship with your boss and turn horrible into happier.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we talk about how to turn horrible bosses into happier relationships with this week’s guest: Tony Deblauwe, Founder of consulting firm HR4Change.

    How to Look People in the Eye Digitally

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, April 15, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT).


    Last week we talked about the adoption of social software for workforce collaboration and communication, and this week we're going to talk about how to look people in the eye digitally.


    Building and sustaining authentic relationships in person or online are no easy tasks. It takes an investment of being “present” when you’re talking to someone.


    This week's guest is a big proponent of "Looking People in the Eye Digitally" (as well as personally). Something we know the TalentCulture #TChat Show community believes in as well.


    Introductions and ongoing relationships in social platforms require the same personal attention as the human touch and eye contact in a physical relationship.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we talk about how to look people in the eye digitally with this week’s guest: Ted Rubin, a leading Social Marketing Strategist, Keynote Speaker, Brand Evangelist, and Acting CMO of Brand Innovators. 


    Thank you to all our TalentCulture sponsors and partners: Dice, Jibe, TalentWise, Hootsuite, IBM, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent, Jobvite, Predictive Analytics World for Workforce and HRmarketer Insight. Plus, we're big CandE supporters!

    Should HR Be Split into Two Branches?

    in Business

    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.
