"The role of the Chief HR Officer is being elevated out of necessity because of the economic environment and the complexity of society." Michael Beygelman
Welcome to a special Leadership Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio. This is Peter Clayton reporting from the beautiful Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Philadelphia. We're at the HRO Today Forum, and just watched a facinating presentation with Michael Beygelman, RPO president, Pontoon -- and Kevin Werbach, Associate Professor of Legal Studies and Business Ethics, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvia.
Their presentation was titled HR Gamification: Not Just Playing Games - and included Mike plugging in his iPhone to an LCD and showing the audience gaming enabled recruitment done real time on his mobile device.
Mike is interviewed by Mark Finn, co-founder and CEO of TalentBox.
This podcast is a new approach for us - in that it's both a podcast and a vodcast - a video interview. You'll find the links to the video version of this podcast right here on Mike's feature page. Enjoy!
