Talent Acquisition Interviews
Inside SourceCon - An interview with Maren Hogan, RedBranch Media
Welcome to a special Sourcecon Edition - Talent Acquisition Channel Podcast with Host Peter Clayton.
Before talking with Maren, here's a recent article in Bloomberg News I shared on Facebook: "As Uber Grew Hastily, Diversity Took a Backseat. Under pressure from harassment and sexism allegations, the ride-hailing giant is rethinking its approach to hiring."No kidding! Uber has found itself in a PR nightmare over the past several months - mostly self-inflicted. You've probably seen the viral video of their CEO Travis Kalanick blasting an Uber driver. Here's a segment from Bloomberg News which shows the clip:
Quoting from the Bloomberg article; Liane Hornsey, Uber's senior vice president of HR, said in a conference call with reporters on Tuesday that she's working to clean up Uber's cultural problems, including its approach to recruiting. Hornsey, who joined the company this year, said Uber revised 1,500 job descriptions to remove unconscious bias from the language, will hold job interview training for women in tech and is ensuring its panel of interviewers is diverse. Uber plans to release a diversity report for the first time next week. "We're spending a good deal of time reflecting on what will lead to true diversity and inclusion," Hornsey wrote in an email. "Clearly, this matters a lot to all of us and must underpin everything we do-it's the foundation of positive cultural change." (You'll find a link to the article in the sidebar.)
Stay tuned... Our exclusive interview with Maren Hogan will air Thursday, March 30th!
A One-Day Conference Focused on the Skills Talent Acquisition Professionals Need to Know
Jeremy Roberts, SPHR, is Vice President, Customer Experience at HiringSolved. He's a frequent speaker at many industry events including SourceCon, ERE, and TalentNet. -- Not surprising since he's the previous Editor of SourceCon. Jeremy spent over a decade working as a recruiter, sourcer, and sourcing manager.
If you're attending SourceCon this spring in Anaheim, California, be sure to catch Jeremy's presentation on Wednesday, March 15th: How to Ensure You Survive the Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Disruption. And yes, machine learning certainly qualifies in 2017, for buzzword bingo.
Welcome to a Talent Acquisition Channel Podcast on TotalPicture Radio. I'm your host Peter Clayton.
A few weeks ago, I was fortunate to meet Jeremy at the HIREconf in New York City, an event organized by HiringSolved. Jeremy was the conference chair. He and his team assembled a terrific lineup of speakers, which we'll get into in this conversation. But first, I need to give a shout-out to Ryan Leary and the entire RecruitingDaily team for including me in the media coverage of the conference. Very much appreciated!

Peter Weddle's career has been shaped by the two most important waves of change in the world's workplace over the past fifty years: the War for the Best Talent and the changing definition and dynamics of work itself.
Whether it's been via research, writing, publishing or public speaking, his focus has always been on helping both employers and working men and women better understand the challenges and opportunities these two waves have unleashed.
Quoting from his LinkedIn profile, "We've come a considerable distance in our understanding of the modern world of work, but much remains to be uncovered and distilled. The quest for that emergent knowledge is what animates my day."
Welcome to a Talent Acquisition Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio. I'm your host Peter Clayton.

GoBe - The Job Bot, a job search chatbot on Facebook Messenger, launched quietly on December 12, 2016, via a single Facebook post.
"Getting accurate job search results wasn't due to some algorithm, or artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning, it was through a " conversational job search" with multiple back-and-forth, short questions and answers." Jonathan Duarte, Co-Founder, GoBe- The Job Bot
According to Jonathan Duarte's January 19, 2016, article posted on Linkedin: "In a short 30 day period, while still in beta testing, GoBe racked up some incredible statistics; GoBe, managed over 100,000 messages with job seekers in over 106 countries, and almost all of the traffic and users came from social media shares, likes and comments..."
"When we set out to help job seekers find jobs, we knew that the current job search process wasn't working for a lot of job seekers. As a 20 year veteran of the Internet recruiting technology market, and founder of one of the first Internet job boards, I knew there were ways to improve the process, but didn't know what would work best."
Welcome to a Talent Acquisition Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio. I'm your host Peter Clayton.
