    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 343 - Taking on Today's Talent Acquisition Challenges

    HR Happy Hour 343 - Taking on Today's Talent Acquisition Challenges

    Host: Steve Boese

    Guest: Susan Vitale, CMO, iCIMS

    Sponsored by Virgin Pulse - www.virginpulse.com

    Listen HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve recorded live from the iCIMS Influence event in the iconic Bell Works building in New Jersey, the new home for the talent acquisition technology provider iCIMS to talk with iCIMS Chief Marketing Officer Susan Vitale about how organizations are tackling today's talent acquisition challenges.

    On the day this show was recorded, the BLS released their monthly JOLTS report which showed that open jobs in the USA hit 7.1 million, an all-time high for this data series. Simply put, more organizations have more job opening than ever before in the US. iCIMS sits at the center of this challenge, helping their customers to find, attract, engage, recruit, and onboard talent in this incredibly tight labor market.

    Susan shared how some of iCIMS customers are attacking their unique talent acquisition challenges with a combination of strategy, process improvement, and innovative applications of new technologies. From global process improvement and efficiencies at a large company like Hertz, to high-touch, high impact recruiting of highly sought after researchers at St Jude's Research Hospital, to engaging with thousands of front-line candidates at scale using texting as a primary communication medium at Advantage Solutions - every company's recruiting challenge is unique and iCIMS is helping thousands of companies in these efforts.

    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 342 - Sports and HR with The 8 Man Rotation

    HR Happy Hour 342 - Sports and HR with The 8 Man Rotation

    Sponsored by Virgin Pulse - www.virginpulse.com

    Host:Steve Boese 

    Guests: Kris Dunn, Lance Haun

    Listen HERE

    Today on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve was joined by two of the founding members of the 'Sports and HR' crew known as The 8 Man Rotation. Kris, Lance, and Steve broke down three recent HR and workplace issues taken from the world of sports.

    The crew discussed the recent harassment and hostile workplace charges at the NBA's Dallas Mavericks organization, how the City of Pittsburgh is implementing a form of the NFL's 'Rooney Rule' to try and improve diversity and representation of underserved populations in City's workforce, and how one innovative technology is moving from the football field and into corporate America.

    Sports were the source of these topics, but the true topics were harassment in the workplace, the responsibility of leaders to respond to harassment reports, diversity in sourcing and hiring, and how modern technology is changing workplace training - all 'real' HR issues.

    This was a fun, interesting, and engaging conversation about how these important workplace issues have originated in the world of sports, but have relevance and importance in the 'real world' too.

    Additionally, we broke down budget hotels in the southeast, the best dining options at Publix, and Tim Sackett's shameless use of exclamation points in blog post titles.

    Thanks Kris and Lance for joining us!

    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 341 - The Evolution of Talent Branding and Candidate Experience

    HR Happy Hour 341 - The Evolution of Talent Branding and Candidate Experience

    Sponsored by Virgin Pulse - www.virginpulse.com

    Host: Steve Boese

    Guest: Kathryn Minshew, The Muse

    Listen HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve was joined by Kathryn Minshew, CEO and Founder of The Muse, a career platform used by over 50 million people to navigate their careers and by hundreds of companies looking to attract, hire and retain great talent. She’s also the author of "The New Rules of Work," a Wall Street Journal national bestseller.

    On the show, Kathryn discussed how candidates have become increasingly discerning in their careers, how they expect more and more authentic information from prospective employers, and how organizations can leverage new technology and media to deliver these talent brand messages and create better candidate experiences.

    Kathryn feels we are in the 3rd phase of the talent branding and candidate experience journey - where employers have to be specific, accurate, and use their 'real' people to tell the organization's stories and deliver an authentic message about how they experience their work environment. She also shared how some of the more effective employer attraction strategies have parallels to marketing - by sourcing great stories to share with prospective candidates, inserting more information and authenticity when interacting with candidates on sites like LinkedIn and email, and by making job descriptions more thoughtful and interesting to candidates.

    HR Happy Hour 340 - Creating the Employee Driven Learning Organization 

    Sponsored by Virgin Pulse - www.virginpulse.com

    Hosts: Steve BoeseTrish McFarlane 

    Guests: Helen Rossiter, West Marine; Connie Costigan, Saba

    Listen HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve and Trish recorded live from the Saba Insights 2018 Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona to talk with Connie Costigan from Saba and  Helen Rossiter from West Marine, a 250+ location retailer on how they have created an employee centric learning organization.

    By empowering employees to take control of their career planning and learning and development opportunities, West Marine has created a culture that enables and supports continuous learning, collaboration, and has created opportunities for employees to expand their skills and grow their careers. Instead of seeing retail, hourly employees as fungible assets, West Marine has invested in learning and development and has seen the beneifts of these investments. It seems really simple, but most organizations still have not made the connection between people, development , and business results as West Marine has experienced.
