Workplace Champions: The strategies of talent-minded business leaders are exposed inside the realm of mid-sized businesses when business journalist Jack Sweeney and performance thought leader Brett Knowles spotlight innovations in human capital management (HCM). The Workplace Champions Podcast is all about inspiring business leaders as they learn from the failures, Ah-ha! moments, and workplace successes of other small and medium business leaders. It’s no secret that small and mid-sized businesses adapt more aggressively and innovate more nimbly than firms many times their size. And yet, in the realm of employment these companies are less visible and vastly less reported upon than large enterprise business, but their combined influence is large and growing larger as a new class of workplace champions emerge.
