In this podcast…

The founders of Key Interval Research, analysts John Sumser and William Tincup, are known for their candor… and they don’t disappoint. Talking about everything from how an HR function evolves in an organization (it’s often a sum of the crises to date), to their disappointment in Harvard Business Review (using the words “lazy” and “Kardashian”), to their list of people who are really innovating in the HR space right now, Sumser and Tincup will take you on a journey that will truly open your eyes.

In this episode of Resonate you will hear:
  • Which companies are better suited to engage employees on social and why
  • Why HR’s structure needs to be customized depending the needs of the organization—unlike areas like Finance
  • Where HR software buys go wrong (surprise: it’s not a conflict between buyers and sellers)
  • Why “Hero Stories” are vital for giving practitioners the examples they need to try brave new things
  • What the future of professional development will look like

Bonus materials include

  • Lots of swearing!
  • Why people are not ever truly authentic (at least on social)!
  • How “B level” talent may be exactly what you need!
