Wouldn’t it be great if there was a place you could go to listen to conversations with some of today’s leading voices in human resources and talent management? We thought so, too, so we decided to see if we could create that place. Welcome to the McQuaig Talent Management Talks podcast!
What’s a podcast? In a nutshell, it’s an on-demand radio or video program. There’s a much larger definition here if you’re interested.
On our podcast, Talent Management Talks, I’ll be interviewing some of the outspoken thought leaders in the HR space and you can watch it, or listen to it, all unfold right here. We’re going to try to make it monthly to begin with and see where that takes us. If you have suggestions for who I should be speaking with, please email me or post your ideas in the comments section below.
You can watch the first episode here, or continue reading for a little more about what to expect.
Our First Guest
I’m really excited about our first guest, Laurie Ruettimann. If you don’t know Laurie, you can learn more about her here. Chances are, if you’re in HR, you know her, though. She’s a speaker, consultant, former HR leader and one of the driving forces behind the #WorkHuman Conference.
And speaking of conferences, have you ever been to an HR conference and seen one of those CHRO panels? You know, the ones where they put a few very senior HR folks up on stage and ask them to share their wisdom?
That’s where my conversation with Laurie begins as she tells us why she thinks those are a waste of time and what she’d like to hear in those sessions to make them really worthwhile. Other topics I explore with Laurie include:
- Why she hated working in HR
- The ups and downs of social media
- What advice she has for succeeding in HR
- What she’d do if she won the lottery!
Laurie is one of strongest voices in HR and she always has so much amazing insight to share. You’re going to love the conversation, I know I did.
