Aug 14 HRchitect WebMingle Featured Saba, Next Up is Verifications, Inc.

August 14, 2009

 

Our weekly web mingle 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 August 14th, the 31st in our WebMingle series, featured A. G. Lambert, VP of Marketing with Saba. It also featured another appearance by the HR Weasel (see below). It was another great WebMingle as A. G. has fantastic insight into learning, talent management, social networking, and more. We touched on a number of issues related to that including: 

  • How the current economy is impacting the talent management space
  • Saba started in the learning space and how that has helped them address the broader talent management space
  • The value of integrating learning with performance and talent management processes
  • How social software and collaboration should be aligned with HR and learning organizations
  • Discussion around some of the great customer stories that Saba has
  • What users can expect at the annual user’s conference in October
  • Saba’s focus on customer service
  • What to expect in the future from Saba and what the market landscape might look like
  • …and more

We also had a special guest appearance in our studios from the HR Weasel. As you know, we always encourage people to call-in or visit our studios during the show. Since we share an office building with other tenants, there has been this person who has been bugging me in the hallway for weeks to get on the show since he wants to be on the radio. I told him to do a little research on our guest and their company before coming in, which he apparently did. Unfortunately he thought we were talking to Saab, the car company, instead of Saba. It made for an interesting conversation. I’m sure we will hear from him again next week.

Aug 7 HRchitect WebMingle Featured nowHIRE; Up Next is Saba

August 7, 2009

 

Our weekly web mingle 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 55-minute WebMingle on August 7th, the milestone 30th in our WebMingle series, featured Joseph Impastato, my friend and President and Founder of nowHIRE. It also featured a surprise appearance (see below). It was another great WebMingle as Joseph has tremendous insight and passion around applicant tracking, and industry that he has been in for more than 10 years. We touched on a number of issues related to that including: 

  • The saturation of the applicant tracking system market and whether continued consolidation opens things up for nowHIRE and other mid-tier players
  • What companies should do when evaluating a talent acquisition vendor
  • Where nowHIRE sees the talent acquisition software delivery model going, and how multi-tenancy and SaaS will play
  • nowHIRE launched an I-9 compliance & E-Verify system about a week ago. Joseph told us the inspiration behind it and how it is being received today.
  • What social media means for the applicant tracking system market
  • nowHIRE’s “green” efforts in being socially and environmentally responsible
  • …and more

We also had a special guest appearance in our studios this week. As you know, we always encourage people to call-in or visit our studios during the show. Since we share an office building with other tenants, there has been this person who has been bugging me in the hallway for weeks to get on the show since he wants to be on the radio. I told him to do a little research on our guest and their company before coming in, which he apparently did, and you will have to listen to the show to find out more. He said his name was Weasel so we have named him the HR Weasel and he said he will be back next week.
