Brainfood Live On Air - Ep66 - Politics in the Workplace w/ Jim Stroud & Kate Bischoff

July 3, 2020

Politics in the Workplace is a tough topic which most folks try to avoid; isn't there actually a saying to that effect?

And yet, as social tensions rise throughout the world, it is increasingly obvious that we cannot compartmentalise our professional from our political selves. 

Which brings a set of challenges for HR / TA which we may be ill equipped or trained to handle. 

In this episode, we are going to grasp the nettle. What should the people function do when the political beliefs of one employee contravene the political beliefs of another?

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep64 - Massive Volume Applicants w/ Bas van de Haterd, Ben Gledhill & Modiar Kamps

June 19, 2020

One of the second order effects of a default to 'remote first' culture is a massively expanded pool of available candidates. After all, once you take off the location requirements, the world becomes your market. 

Combined with worldwide economic retrenchment, we will shockingly have a labour market entirely the reverse of what was the case 3 months ago - candidate & applicant rich. 

What to do when you have too many candidates?

What assessment tools do we need to use to control applicant flow?

What happens to candidate experience when there are so many candidates?

What types of assessment should employers lean on?

Should recruiters shift from acquisition experts to assessment experts?

We're with Bas van de Haterd, Ben Gledhill & (hopefully!) Modiara Kamps

How do you hire and onboard new candidates, having never met them in person?

What happens to candidate experience when everything is fully remote?

How do we do employer branding?

What communications channels work best in a distributed context?

How to design a remote on boarding process which works?

We'll be joined by Charu Malhotra, Employer Branding Leader, Oana Iordachescu, Senior Talent Acquisition Lead at Zalando, and Adam

With a change to scheduled programming, we are going to be talking why BAD  VIDEO IS BAD BUSINESS on Brainfood Live On Air Ep60!

Lets face it folks - not only are we doing too many video calls, too many of these are a terrible experience, mainly due to correctable mistakes that we routinely make which makes the experience harder than it should be for the viewers & participants.

I AM NO DIFFERENT!

Even though I had done 60 of these webinars, it still took me some time to understand basic sh1t like 'place your camera higher' so people can see more than just your head. 

I'm gathering together a load of video con experts to tell us how it is done. This is an act of altruism - lets elevate our collective video game.
