#TChat Preview: Anniversary & Mending The Employee-Employer Relationship

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back! After a week off for Thanksgiving, we’ll be live on Wednesday, December 3, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET.

In our last show we talked about the challenges of enabling a talent management strategy with technology, and this week we’re going to talk about the future of the employee-employer relationship — and celebrate the TalentCulture #TChat Show’s 4-year anniversary!

We keep talking incessantly about how bad the relationship is between employees and employers. Yes, we get it. It’s bad.

But even with the limited solutions that are offered today in the world of work, none has been actionable enough; we just keep playing misery shuffleboard.

Our guests for this week’s show argue that the key driver of organizational sustainability is the strength of the social contract that develops between an employer and its employees. And the fact that companies can and should recruit, manage, and retain entrepreneurial employees who will make them adaptive and innovative.

Oh, and we’ll also be celebrating the TalentCulture #TChat Show’s 4-year anniversary! If you’re tc-ipaper-blog2-700x325interested in taking a bit of a virtual trip down memory lane, check out our cool new anniversary iPaper.

As for next week’s show, join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about the future of the employee-employer relationship with our guests: Marla Gottschalk, Ph.D., Industrial & Organizational Psychologist and Director of Thought Leadership at Kilberry Leadership Advisors; and Chip Joyce, CEO and Co-founder of Allied Talent.

Special Offer:
