While the future continues to change dramatically, one constant remains unchanged: what ensured past success will also secure future success regardless of the changing business dynamics, and that constant is people. A workforce that is committed to your company's success is a workforce that experiences mutual trust and respect with its management team.

In this Big Picture Channel Podcast on TotalPicture Radio, Tim Garrett, former chief people officer of Honda of America Mfg, offers his first-hand experience leading his people function in such a way that Honda successfully evolved in an ever-changing global competitive environment. During his tenure, Tim helped the company to remain the oldest non-union automotive manufacturer in North America. Tim is a keynote speaker at this week's HRPS Global Conference in New York.

Tim Garrett has over 33 years of hands-on practical experience in the HR/labor relations field. As the former CHRO for Honda of America Mfg., Garrett played an important role in the growth and success of the organization, which had over 13,000 associates and revenue exceeding $15 billion. With the rapid expansion of the global automotive industry and the fluid changes taking place, he helped guide Honda through numerous strategic changes to strengthen the competitiveness of the organization. He was able to achieve strong support from the associate workforce, who repeatedly rejected union organizing drives, by striking a balance between the needs of Honda and the associates. Tom currently serves as principal of Diversified Performance Solutions, a consulting company dedicated to helping companies become better, stronger and more competitive.

You Can't Afford "Unemployed Need Not Apply"


A Podcast with Ronald M. Katz, SPHR, Penguin Human Resource Consulting

If you missed Ron Katz's presentation at ERE Expo focused on the long-term unemployed, you're in luck! Ron joins us today for a special Big Picture channel podcast to present his argument for recruiting those who've been looking for a job for -- well -- way too long.

We all know how dire the unemployment situation is. Almost one third the nearly 14 million unemployed people in this country have been out of work a year or more. They describe themselves as the "ghosts of the workplace."

Ron Katz has worked with people on both sides of the interview desk; and feels recruiters, hiring managers and HR generalists are not doing enough to bring these talented people back to the workplace.

In this podcast, he'll help you to understand the special challenges and benefits when recruiting those labeled "long-term unemployed," including managers' reluctance to consider them - as well as applicants' distrust of corporate America.


JIBE: A Triple Play of Recruiting Tools Built for the Enterprise


"Almost Overnight, Every Single Economically Viable Human Being On The Planet Has Acquired A Cell Phone." Joe Essenfeld

In a white paper written by our guest, Joe Essenfeld, the CEO of JIBE, he states, "A recent Cisco study projected that the number of mobile-connected devices will exceed the earth's population by the end of this year." Another stat: "By the end of 2014, nearly every employee of every American and European company will be using a smartphone." Nice. But... how many people want to use their smartphone to apply for a job?

First, let's back up a minute...

JIBE is a referral-based hiring platform that enables jobseekers to tap into their existing social networks to gain access to the jobs they want through the people they already know. JIBE provides jobseekers with a wide range of career opportunities, insight into how many connections they have at a given company and the ability to contact their connections, ask for referrals, and then attach those referrals to their job application. JIBE works directly with enterprises, many of which are Fortune 1,000 companies. Founded in 2008 by Joe Essenfeld, JIBE is based in New York City and backed by Polaris Venture Partners, Lerer Ventures, Zelkova Ventures and Thrive Capital.

In the last six months JIBE's user base has grown more than 130 percent.

Welcome to a Big Picture channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio with Peter Clayton reporting from New York City. My guest today is Joe Essenfeld the Founder and CEO of JIBE. Prior to starting JIBE, Joe was the COO of Insomnia Cookies, a successful late-night cookie delivery company in college towns across the country. Joe also spent several years in the restaurant management industry. It was his experiences in hiring hundreds of employees during that time that led him to start JIBE -- a software company that provides enterprises with consumer-facing recruiting solutions focused on mobile, referrals and cross-platform job board postings.

I was fortunate to re-connect with Joe at ERE Expo Spring a few weeks ago - which led to our meeting today.

If your company is building a new career portal, you should build the mobile version first, then adopt that to a full web browser.

There's a lot more to promoting your Employer Brand and career opportunities through social media and advertising than simply starting a Twitter account, or launching a Facebook fan page. What are your objectives? What are your goals? Have you developed a strategy for using social media with measurable goals?

Yazad Dalal, our guest today in this Big Picture Channel podcast, is Regional Vice President at TMP Worldwide, based in New York City. I met with Yaz to discuss the changes in recruiting - the use of social media and ways for engaging visitors to career sites and the importance of mobile to candidate engagement.

TMP is hiring - and we discuss what Yaz looks for in a job interview and a resume.
