#TChat Preview: Realities Of HR-Vendor Relationships

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, March 25, 2015, 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.

HR departments and leaders deal with a new reality today. A reality that consists of complex relationship ecosystems that use a combination of insourcing and outsourcing as the only way to get their actual work done.

According to new KeyInterval Research, a practitioner centric market research firm founded by William Tincup and John Sumser, HR Department increasingly looks like a purchasing department with a specific set of subject matter expertise. So, HR is getting increasingly good at managing vendors and other relationships that cause work to be done by people who are not direct members of the HR Team (employees).

Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about the realities of the Ideal HR-vendor relationship with this week’s guests: William Tincup and John Sumser, long-time HR and recruiting industry luminaries and the founders of KeyInternal Research, a practitioner centric market research firm.

William is a Principal Analyst with KeyIntervalR building maps of the intersection of HR and technology.

John is also a Principal Analyst at KeyInterval Research and digs into the realities of HR Practitioner experience with technology. He is also the Editor of  HRExaminer.
