    #HRHappyHour 161 PODCAST - 'Building a Smarter Workforce'

    This week the HR Happy Hour Show/Podcast is back with a fresh episode recorded earlier this week - 'Building a Smarter Workforce' with guest Jonathan Ferrar, VP, Smarter Workforce from IBM (you can follow Jonathan on Twitter as well - @jaferrar).

    It was a fascinating conversation with Jonathan - a leader with over 20 years of Human Resources experience across the globe - about the changing nature of technology, expectations, and how HR and organizations are starting to react to those challenges. 

    You can listen to the show on the show page here, using the widget player below, and of course on iTunes - just search the podcasts area for 'HR Happy Hour'.

    The Smarter Workforce is certainly more than just a marketing angle, it really is a concept that reflects the way that organizations are starting to combine things like existing investments in Talent Management technology and programs, new initiatives in social collaboration tools, and finally incorporating Big Data and analytics in order to produce better results, and create more opportunities for innovation.

    We talked about some of the opportunities for HR in leveraging these tools and approaches in new areas - like turning recruitment into a high-functioning marketing operation and how mobile and social technologies can transform employees into on-demand learners and teachers.

    Thanks to Jonathan and the folks at IBM for taking the time this week - and a a shout-out to HR Happy Hour Show co-host Trish McFarlane, who was a little under the weather this week and could not make the show.

    Finally, for listeners of the show an announcment of sorts. For the next little while anyway, Trish and I will be doing the HR Happy Hour Shows more as a traditional podcast - recorded in advance, perhaps a little shorter than the live shows were, and hopefully posted to the site every other week. With our schedules and lots of travel on the horizon this year, doing the shows 'live' on Thursday nights has become increasingly challenging. Trish and I hope that by changing how the shows are produced it will allow us the opportunity to continue doing the show/podcast in a way that will work with our schedules as well as our future guests.

    Have a great weekend!


    RADIO : You'll certainly be sick of hearing from me after this week

    Through some combination of poor planning, forgetfulness, and narcissism, I am going to be guesting/hosting on THREE internet radio shows/podcasts in the next 36 hours or so. So for the benefit of the few family members of mine that might be interested in hearing from me THAT much, here are the details and dates and times of these shows:

    1. SAP Radio's 'Coffee Break with Game Changers' - TODAY at 11:00AM EST.

    The episode it titled 'Workforce Analytics: Real People, Real Numbers' and I will be in on a panel of industry experts on workforce analytics and technology, (I will be the person saying things like 'HR departments already have plenty of data' and 'The only metric you really need to know is Revenue per Employee')

    The hashtag for the show is #SAPradio and it should be a fun and interesting conversation.

    2. Drive Thru HR - TOMORROW, Feb. 7th at 1:00PM EST

    I make my annual drop-in to Bryan and William's show.  I am sure they plan to ask me 'What's keeping me up at night?'  I have two potential answers - 'Nothing' and 'How far can Carmelo carry an aging Knicks team in the playfoffs this year?'  I'm leaning towards talking about the Knicks, so you have been warned.

    The hashtag for Drive thru is #DTHR.

    3. HR Happy Hour - 'Tech and the Job Hunt' - TOMORROW, Feb. 7th at 8:00PM EST

    Yes, I am appearing on my own show/podcast as Trish McFarlane and I welcome our good friend Kevin Grossman in to talk about his new book the Tech Job Hunt Handbook, and to take a look at the world or work, of technology, and whatever else we feel like tacking. Kevin is a super person, and I think this will be a really fun and interesting show.

    The call-in number for the HR Happy Hour is 646-378-1086, and you can join the fun on Twitter as well - hashtag #HRHappyHour.

    That's the scoop on my exploding online radio career.

    I hope to catch some of you on the backchannel in the next couple of days!
