    Coming up on the HR Happy Hour

    We have a pretty full and I think exciting schedule of shows coming up on the HR Happy Hour the next few months.

    Here is what Shauna and I have planned: (Times and Guests subject to change):

    Episode 8 - 'HR and Sports' - August 28, 2009  - 8PM EDT

    What are the connections between Sports and HR and Talent Management? Is managing superstar employees at all like managing superstar athletes? What can coaching Little League baseball tell you about management? Are my beloved Jets going to get the Super Bowl? Shauna and I will talk about these topics and who knows what else with scheduled guests Tracy Tran, Todd Kmiec, Lance Haun and Kris Dunn.

    Episode 9 - 'HR and Small Business' - September 11, 2009 - 8PM EDT

    Small businesses and small HR departments have lots of challenges.  Lack of resources, budget, time, and access to information can all put small businesses at a disadvantage.  What are some strategies that small business and small HR departments can use to try and level the playing field with their larger, and usually better equipped competition?  Set to join Shauna and I are Charee Klimek and Franny Oxford.

    Episode 10 - 'The Job Seekers Show' - September 18, 2009 - 8PM EDT

    We know unemployment is almost 10% in the US, and much higher than that in many especially hard-hit states.  This show is all about giving some practical, simple advice and strategies for the job-seeker,  facing the worst economic climate in generations. Folks that are actively searching are encouraged to call in with their questions.  Scheduled to join us and share their expertise are Jennifer McClure, Paul DeBettignies, Deirdre Honner, and Robin Eads.

    Episode 11 - 'Talent and Technology' - September 25, 2009 - 6PM EDT

    This should be a really fun show coming to you live from the offices of Halogen Software, a leading HR Technology vendor in the Talent Management Technology space.  Shauna and I will welcome some great folks from Halogen to talk about these technologies, the benefits that can be gained from the use of these tools, and some of the critical success factors necessary for organizations that embark on these projects.  Halogen has been a great support of my HR Tech class, and the HR blogging and social media community and I am really pleased to take the show to their headquarters.

    Episode 12 - 'The Work/Life Show' - October 9, 2009 - 8PM EDT

    The Work/Life balance debate really heated up this summer after the Jack Welch speech at the SHRM national convention.  Is there really such a thing as Work/Life balance?  Do employees have a right to expect flexibility or Alternative Work Strategies?  Should companies toss out schedules altogether and move to a Results Only Work Environment (ROWE)?  Shauna and I will welcome Leanne Chase and Chris Ferdinandi to figure it all out.

    Episode 13 - 'HR Horror Stories' - October 23, 2009 - 8PM EDT

    Shauna had a great idea for a 'Horror Stories' show to fit the Halloween season.  This show will be all about taking your calls with the scariest, craziest, and most frightening HR stories that you can share. Employee forgot to wear pants to work? Illegal escort service being run out of the stockroom? Anyone pull a George Costanza with the office cleaning lady?  Here's your chance to share with the world.

    That's it for now, as always the archives for past shows can be found at my Blog Talk Radio page.

    Wow what a lineup! Work/Life balance - that will be fabulous. Oh, and I LOVE the horror stories - maybe listeners could also email their best/fave horror story too. The anonymity might help loosen lips. :)

    Count me in for HR Horror Stories. Have I told you how I had a woman bringing her boyfriend on business trips and asked her employees to cover his expenses on their corporate credit cards to spread around the charges -- and the risk? Or how I saw two people have sex at work (via my office window) and then had to walk over to their office, aka love nest, and ask them to close their blinds? Or how I had a one-eyed VP try to kiss me at a business dinner? Or how I had a bad allergic reaction during an interview that I was conducting and came down with LOCK JAW and freaked out the candidate -- who then refused to come back for a second interview because I was so freaky?

    Yeah, awesome stories.

    Dee - Thanks very much, we have some great shows coming up, and I give Shauna all the credit for the HR Horror Stories idea. I think the Work/Life show will be very interesting as well. Of course the 'Job Seeker' show I am really hoping can help some one out ther out.

    Laurie - Thanks so much! If those stories are just the start of your HR Horror Stories I am almost afraid to ask what else is in the archive. The last time I worked in NYC for any length I was on the 20th or so floor of a typical office building. Our windows faced toward Madison Ave. Right across Madison was another big tower, and once or twice a week around 6 PM we used to catch a couple in a very private meeting in their office. I think they must have thought since they were 20 stories up no one would could see them, so they usually did not close this blinds. Little did they know there were a bunch of degenerate tech consultants across the road.

    Dee and Laurie - Thanks so much for your support of the show, Shauna and I really appreciate it!
