Recruiters Beware: Job Aggregators May Be Killing Your Candidate Experience
Not be getting the results you expect from your recruitment marketing? Graham Thornton, co-founder of Change State, offers a chilling warning: “recruiters beware.” Job aggregators may be doing more harm than good despite many organizations using them to attract top talent. Unfortunately a mismanaged or naive recruitment marketing strategy can be taken advantage of by many job aggregators which puts a black mark on your candidate experience, your employment brand, and drains your recruitment dollars fast. Who are these job aggregators and how and when should you engage with - or avoid - them? Thornton is a treasure trove of recruitment marketing tips and information. This episode is guaranteed to open your eyes to why your best recruitment efforts might not be getting the best results. Our popular Ahead of the Curve: Normal 2.0 segment returns this week with Geeks Geezers Googlization co-host Joyce Gioia talking about “Hotel Hacks” in the time of COVID19 and how the hotel industry is likely to change in Normal 2.0.

Torin Ellis on Inclusion: It's Time to Table Our Fragility
We can again send men and women into outer space but we still can't figure out how to bring black men and women, veterans, and disabled people into our workforce? How can we do better? What will it take to embrace inclusion and equity? Our guest, the one-and-only Torin Ellis, sums it up in three words: table our fragility. That's just one of the many inspiring, heartfelt, passionate pleas you'll hear during this unfiltered conversation with one of the most influential D and I leaders today. In what is sure to be an all-time Geeks Geezers Googlization favorite, we talked with Torin about why we must do better, why change isn't about our intent but our impact, how 2020 can be different if we take action, why we must give ourselves permission to make mistakes and then do better. Why we must do better because equity, social justice, and humanity are hanging by a thread.

The Submarine Way to Inclusion and Leadership
If you are wondering what a submarine has to do with diversity and inclusion, it’s EVERYTHING! On a submarine, inclusion is critical to teamwork, to accomplish the mission, to reduce conflict, and to appreciate the strengths of every individual. Inclusion is so engrained that it is organic. Without exaggeration, my guests Deborah Cake Fortin and Jon Gregory Vincent, authors of The Submarine Way and Up Periscope, believe the survival of mankind depends on this concept. They are on a mission: to change the world, one company, one police department, one city, one university at a time. Today is your time too to make inclusion organic in your organization. We are then joined by celebrity futurist Joyce Gioia, CEO of The Herman Group, for our special series Ahead of the Curve: Normal 2.0. Today's topic is empathy. The Geeks, Geezers & Googlization TV Show can be viewed live every Wednesday at 1 PM ET on Facebook, YouTube, Talk 4 TV, and broadcast on W4CY Radio, part of Talk 4 Radio, on the Talk 4 Media Network.

Combatting Zoom Fatigue
Are you feeling more exhausted at the end of your workday? You’re not alone. Zoom fatigue is real. Ever since the unofficial social experiment of working from home was launched in early 2020 due to the pandemic, video calls boomed. While this technology likely saved our economy and jobs market from a total meltdown, Zoom (and all its counterparts like Microsoft Teams and Google Meet) started to take a complicated and unintentional toll on the workforce. Today we meet Josh Little, the founder of four successful tech companies. Josh is on a mission to save the working world from death-by-meetings with his newest venture. During this episode, Josh shares how he plans to help us work remotely without going crazy. Then stay tuned for our 2nd guest, celebrity futurist Joyce Gioia, who co-hosts our special series "Ahead of the Curve: Normal 2.0." This week, our focus is on Leadership in Normal 2.0.

Hiring for Culture “Add” vs Culture "Fit"
The long-held practice of hiring for culture fit (hiring only “round pegs” for “round holes”) is problematic. The realities of today require a better approach. Our guest for this episode is Jen Ferguson, founder and growth strategist of Sales 911, who believes that hiring for culture “add” is not only a better strategy but it’s also the right thing to do. We discuss why culture fit no longer works, why hiring people who share your company values is different from hiring for culture fit, and how culture “add” embraces and encourages a work environment that celebrates diversity, inclusion, and equity (DEI). DEI will be one of the most powerful movements and shifts for years to come. But getting it right won’t be easy. We have a lot of work to do. The journey starts right here with a candid, honest, and often times difficult conversation. We also introduced our new segment "Ahead of the Curve: Normal 2.0" with Joyce Gioia, Celebrity Futurist. Geeks, Geezers & Googlization Show is broadcast live every Wednesday at 1PM ET. We encourage participation, comments and questions.
