    Steve's First HR Technology Interview - Beth Carvin

    '

    For my next HR Technology class, I thought arranging and recording some interviews with leaders and experts in the HR Technology space would be an excellent addition to the course content, and give the class a chance to learn directly from the source, which is always a great opportunity.

    My first guest and interviewee is Beth N Carvin.  Beth is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Nobscot Corporation, the pioneer in exit interview management software, was founded in April 2000. Nobscot released it's flagship product, WebExit, in January of 2001. In December of that year, WebExit was crowned one of the Top 10 HR Products of the Year by HR Executive Magazine.  Nobscot also markets Mentor Scout, an application to help support company mentoring programs, and Mentor Scout Talent Networking Edition, a platform for internal corporate social networking.

    Beth has over twenty years of experience in business management, strategy, human resources, sales and marketing. Ms. Carvin was previously an HR and Business Development Officer with BancWest Corporation and the managing partner of Excel Employment. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies from University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and is a member of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society.

    Recently, Beth has delivered a number of talks and webcasts on the subject of 'What Every HR Professional Needs to Know About Social Networking', and is recognized as a thought leader on the subject of both external and internal social networking and the implications and issues to the HR Professional.

    Beth and I discussed Social Networking in the organization, and talked on a wide range of issues, from policy, to whether organizations should 'block' access to these sites, and if today's employee has a right to expect access and the ability to use social networking in the workplace.

    The interview can be heard here:

    This interview, done on April 30, 2009 and future interviews can also be found on my Blog Talk Radio page.

    It was a fantastic discussion, and I want to thank Beth for taking the time to share her insights on the subject, and I am sure my upcoming class will enjoy her perspectives.

    Thanks again Beth!
