#TChat Preview: The HR Whine & Dine Networking Movement

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, August 27, 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.

Last week we talked about how we can identify, survive, or leave a poor company culture, and this week we’re going to talk about why HR and Business pros need to support each other and help each other thrive.

HR and Business professionals spend a lot of time taking care of the people within their organizations, but so many fall short on supporting themselves and others within the space. In some ways it’s like the cobbler is good at his job but forgets to make shoes for his own kids.

Unfortunately HR can be an obstacle, not a conduit to accomplishing things for the organization, the employees or each other. Practitioners are focused on jobs versus careers. Beyond certification (controversial as it is now), HR and Business pros don’t take enough time to network and help one another, but they can and should.

Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about how HR and Business pros need to support each other and help each other thrive with this week’s guests: Keith Bogen, HR pro and chief networking officer of Whine & Dine Networking; Ed Han, wordsmith with a passion for networking and helping people put their professional best foot forward, especially on LinkedIn.
