Our weekly WebMingle is designed to give you some insight into the puzzling world of HR technology, discuss news from around the world that we find interesting, talk about upcoming events in our industry, and provide insightful interviews with people of our industry – who they are, what they do and why you should care. The WebMingle has become the most popular live weekly Internet show in the HR technology industry!
So what is a WebMingle? It is a meeting over the web where we do some business, socialize and yes, we mingle over the web. Thus, a WebMingle.
The 60-minute WebMingle on November 6th, the 43rd in our WebMingle series, featured Kevin Marasco, VP of Brand Marketing for Taleo. Kevin has great passion around talent management, marketing, business trends, innovation, and more. You can hear the excitement in his voice and we touched on a bunch of issues related to all of that including:
- Talent Management Trends
- Taleo 10
- Taleo World
- Taleo Talent Grid
- Macro Business Trends
- Social Networking and Innovation
- Global Talent Management
- …and more
