Quick one for a Friday (and because the only thing between me and some Dunkin' coffee is posting this recap).
Yesterday I had the chance to attend an event called the 'Position Accomplished Summit' hosted by The Ladders in New York City. It was fun, informative, and really an interesting and challenging day. And don't get me started about the 'challenging' day of travel - Amtrak for seven hours - fun!
After the conclusion of the event, the folks at the Ladders were nice enough to let me conduct the HR Happy Hour show from one of their conference rooms, where a truly super-star panel of HR and Recruiting leaders joined myself and Shauna Moerke to talk about recruiting, marketing, job boards, LinkedIn, erectile dysfunction pharmaceuticals, prison culture, and all kinds of crazy stuff.
People you will hear on the playback:
Kris Dunn, Jessica Lee, John Sumser, Gerry Crispin, Kevin Wheeler, Jim Stroud, Mark Stelzner, David Manaster, Josh LeTourneau, Jason Boltax, Kelly Dingee, and hopefully no one else that I forgot to mention.
Listen to the archive on the show page here, or using the widget player below:
We talked quite a bit about the state of the industry, and very frankly and openly about The Ladders, their business model and their controversial TV ads. The folks from the Ladders helped immeasurably in allowing the show to go on, and were invited to participate and decided to decline to allow us to have our conversations. I am optimistic that they will appear on a future show.
Many thanks to the great panel of stars that took an hour at the end of a long day to join the show.
Now I can hit the NYC streets to find some coffee!
