Great topics and lively discussion
Lots of boring content out there on these topics but these podcasts are on the money. Like the conversational and informal style. Would recommend getting external participants too from either vendors or clients in the space. Well worth a sub.
Slightly biased clearly but I do think these are essential listening for business guys/gals who are wondering what opportunity for growth exists within their people and for HR dudes wishing to gain more influence and lead their business.
Highly insightful and thought provoking podcasts with a human, approachable feel. I will definitely be tuning in to more!
