Peter Weddle, CEO TAtech - TotalPicture Radio interview with Peter ClaytonPeter Weddle

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.

I'm happy to welcome back to the show Peter Weddle, whom I first met in 2005 when this podcast began, at the first industry conference I attended, Recruiting Trends, at the Jacob Javits Center in New York.

Peter is CEO of TAtech: The Association for Talent Acquisition Solutions. The trade association for companies and organizations that design, develop and deliver technology-based recruiting products and services. Collectively, its Members power or operate over 70,000 sites worldwide and offer solutions for every facet of talent acquisition. Today, Peter Weddle joins me with an association update, and insight regarding TAtech and its global conference footprint.


Peter, great to be speaking with you.

For many years, your website, weddles.com was the source for job board information, now TAtech is that resource and weddles.com has transistioned to a resource for recruiters. Is that correct?

Tell us about TAtech, and the Spring Congress.

I want to expand on your events this year. The first will be held in Chicago on April 22nd and 23rd which is actually two events in one: TAtech Spring Congress and the TAtech Business Accelerator.

What other events do you have planned for 2017?

In your recent Job Board Journalist newsletter you write about accurate measurement of page views, click-throughs, etc. siting Facebook's well known embarrassment of overstating its video viewership that was widely reported on. So how does this relate to job boards?

What is the TAtech Declaration on Traffic Quality?

Every year someone pronounces job boards as dead. And yet they still make up a significant percentage of the source of hire. What's your take on the health of the job board industry?

However, Facebook, LinkedIn and Glassdoor have certainly challenged the traditional job boards - the Monsters and CareerBuilders.

What about niche job boards?

There's another Job Board Journalist article I'd like to discuss with you, Peter. Titled The Cancer Eating Away at TA Technology - as you point out, the HR Tech industry is a $14B industry, and yet the TA Tech industry is often an afterthought within HR - viewed as just an advertising expense - share with us some of your observations.
