The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, July 9, 2014, from 7:00-7:30 pm ET for Radio, and as always 7:00-8:00 pm ET for the Twitter chat.
Before the 4th of July break we talked about how organizations can and should differentiate, and this week we’re going to talk about the benefits of true talent engagement.
Unfortunately talent management strategies of the past no longer work. Today people work differently, are motivated differently and are engaged differently. Millennials may have pushed all the employer flexibility buttons, but now every generation is demanding more.
For example, employees want ongoing growth opportunities, workplace flexibility, tools and systems that encourage collaboration, and commitment to a reciprocal climate of support and encouragement, all of which lead to payoffs in employee retention, satisfaction, and overall business performance.
The key, today, is to drive a higher level of contribution and deeper engagement through a better “people management” experience that can lead to better and more lucrative business outcomes. Companies that demonstrate consistently high engagement scores are gaining an advantage with fully immersed employees who are committing to their organization by contributing to, both, a healthy culture and bottom line.
Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about improving the talent engagement experience with this week’s guest: Jeff Carr, CEO and President of PeopleFluent.
Thank you to our sponsors and partners: RIVS, GreatRated of Great Place to Work, TalentWise, GloboForce, SAP/SuccessFactors, PeopleFluent, Red Branch Media and HRmarketer Insight.

From the 'hood to the 'burbs, no greater preservation exists than the life of a child. Help Tavarius graduate and make his love count.
For several years, 52 Street Positive has been honored to receive numerous awards for mentoring, youth advocacy, and fatherhood engagement. Now, they have combined all three aspects into a distinct collaboration to prevent child maltreatment for the positive.
Consider these facts courtesy of the US Dept of Health and Human Services:
The estimated annual cost of child abuse and neglect in the United States alone reached $124 billion in 2008.
Child abuse occurs at every socioeconomic level, across all ethnic and cultural lines, within all religions and at all levels of education.
Approximately 3 million reports of child abuse in the U.S. are made annually.
There are more than 470,000 children in foster care.
Approx 30% of abused and neglected children will later abuse their own children, continuing the horrible cycle of abuse.
A child abuse report is made every ten seconds across the USA.
Two-thirds of the people in treatment for drug abuse reported being abused or neglected as children.
14% of men and 36% of women incarcerated were abused as children.
Nearly 80% of 21 year olds abused as children have criteria of at least one mental disorder.
Types and percentage breakdown of abuses: Neglect, 62.8%; Physical, 16.6%; Sexual, 9.3%; Emotional, 7.1%.
Abuse by ethnicity: White, 49.7%; African American, 23.1%; Hispanic, 17.4%.
Gender breakdown: Female, 50.3%; Male, 47.3%.
Participants are encouraged to present their spiritual questions, queries and struggles, whereby the host will attempt with the aid of scripture and the Holy Spirit's inspiration to provide adequate instruction, correction, inspiration and encouragement. Comments and exhortation may also be solicited from the other participants within the bounds of relevance and congeniality. The overall objective will be to create a liberated atmosphere where people feel free and comfortable to share their concerns and get their longtime, internalized questions at the least addressed and ideally answered. This format is being employed to stir discussion and participation amongst God’s people and counter the current spectator, one-way monologue program that is being practiced in most contemporary church worship services today. The goal being to allow the Holy Spirit the freedom, time and interaction to bring knowledge, wisdom, healing and support to the members of Christ’s body, for one another and by one another. As well as, inviting outside seekers of truth into a non-intimidating, non-traditionally religious setting of dialogue, where they can pose their questions without fear of judgment and openness and acceptance in a spirit of love and mutual engagement. Join us as we pierce through the darkness & cut our way through the murky waters of what Christianity has become today, so as to find the freedom that Christ intended us to have, in the same way he taught & shared when he walked & lived life among the people. What was the Act's Church & were we meant depart from it into what Church has become today. And if we have, how did we get there? Join us as we unravel these questions & tackle many more which has made Christianity into what it is today.

Miami, FL – In the heart of Miami Beach, Sally Drinkhouse and Nicole Pritchett are opening one of the coolest additions to the hottest city in Florida: ice bar and premier lounge Drinkhouse Fire and Ice, the first of its kind in South Florida, is set to open in the fall across from the Ritz-Carlton in South Beach.
Every inch of the bar will be made from ice, from the furniture to the art and even the drink glasses. However, one of the most notable features of the ice bar is its state of the art LED light system and energetic décor – selenite tables, crystals and photography by Peter Lik, one of the world’s most renowned landscape photographers.
“Selenite is a powerful crystal known for its ability to remove negativity from its surroundings,” says Drinkhouse.
The bar will also feature world-class ice sculptures and unique hand-carved pieces courtesy of award-winning ice sculptor David Berman.
"I think this city is ready for a truly unique entertainment experience," says Drinkhouse.
On the weekends the lounge will feature both locally and internationally-known DJ’s, as well as feature talented choreographers from around the world, like internet sensation Lady Casa, whose following is incomparable in the nightlife dance scene.
In addition to the Ice bar, Samadhi lounge, a ‘warm’ bar and elite speakeasy located within the ice bar, will feature unpretentious service, energetic décor, and the freshest ingredients mixed with the finest spirits to offer exceptional cocktails and an intimate, memorable experience.
The temperature inside the bar will be kept at a cool 23 degrees and guests will be supplied with faux fur-lined hooded capes and leather gloves to keep warm.

PAYING YOUR DUES TO REACH SUCCESS WITH WORLD PHOTOGRAPHER JOHN OLIVO
Success is the prize that doesn’t come without hard work, humbling ourselves, making ourselves teachable and determined that whatever we do along the way is done with excellence.
In this episode of God, Where Were You When? world-photographer John Olivo talks to host Sherrie Clark specifically about this subject, one that he knows all too well. He had humbled himself and remained an assistant to a master photographer who had the best studio in New York City, sticking it out for eight years despite the fact that all previous assistants lasted no more than a couple of weeks. His teachable spirit paid off in more ways than one. This master photographer taught John everything he needed to know about being a successful master photographer himself, travelling the world to photograph royalty and celebrities, as well as how to operate a successful photography business.

Today's Automotive Advertising Experts show features an interview with Mark Dubis and Jeff Sprague, the co-founders of Carfolks.com , discussing the Carfolks marketing and employee retention program.
Philip Zelinger, the host of the show and President of Ad Agency Online, LLC, will ask Mark and Jeff to share their insights on what dealerships need to do in order to build long term customer loyalty, retain their best employees, and differentiate themselves from the competition.
The Carfolks.com platform provides a simple transparent solution to build a salesperson’s personal brand online, leverage social media channels like Facebook and Twitter, and engage with customers and prospects to build a growing and sustainable customer base. While many dealers chase customer reviews most of the current programs only treat the symptoms and don’t address the cure that our industry has been searching for over the last few years. Mark will discuss next generation customer engagement and some recently announced marketing partnerships with select vendors in the auto industry that share their vision to provide a consumer centric, dealer focused solution to enhancing the sales process and improve the customer experience.
