Bonus: Millennials & Gen Z in the workplace
 Welcome to this bonus episode in which I’ll share some recent research on Millennials and Gen Z in the workplace.  This week I am talking with several great guests and just haven’t decided yet who I’ll air on Friday. I’ll make a decision by Thursday and post a Trailer then. According to InsideOut Development, more than 75% of Gen Z employees believe they should be promoted in their first year on the job, these findings from a recent survey of 1,000 individuals ages 18 to 23. These findings are something for HR and Hiring Managers to think about so they can best manage the expectations of this newest generation to join their workforces. Here's the link to the WSJ article for you to read more https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-office-rookies-who-ask-for-the-world-11554730098? Would love to get your reactions. Thanks for listening!

Ham, Robots and Goldman Sachs
Thanks to my guest for this episode, James Ellis.  For those not familiar with James (there maybe one!) he’s a keynote speaker, and employer branding expert and host of his own podcast called the Talent Cast and a self proclaimed 'ham'.  Which ended up becoming part of the title of this episode, Ham, Robots and Goldman Sachs! James talks about how Employer Branding sets the stage for the whole candidate journey. I hope you enjoy the show and tell your friends! Connect with James via LinkedIn or his website. This week I also published an article on the how and why I started this podcast for those interested in a little history. I say history, but we just started this 2-weeks ago so it's been a short-journey thus far! If you like this podcast, please subscribe where ever you enjoy podcasts. So you won't miss out.

Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good
Thanks to Alicia Parr for sharing her wisdom on this episode of The Candidate Experience Podcast where we discuss the good, bad, and ugly of the candidate journey.  Alicia is the Principal of Performentor,  a management consultancy where they use people science to help you grow your business fast with fewer speed bumps. She paraphrased the quote attributed to the French philosopher, Voltaire "Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good". We couldn't agree more, incremental improvements to the candidate experience are all good.  Here's the quote I read to start off this podcast from Peter Cappelli ... Companies often say people are their most important asset. But, for many, you’d never know it by the way they actually go about hiring those people. Also, here's the link to the full article The Mistakes Firms Make With Hiring. Sorry it's behind the WSJ's paywall. Thanks for listening and please subscribe!
