Video Series Premieres with Charles Jones, Chairman/CEO of Peoplefluent, Sept. 29th, 2pm ET

Don’t miss the premiere of Firing Line with Bill Kutik – the first video interview series about HR technology – airing 2 pm Thursday, September 29.

Bill’s first guest will be Charles Jones, Chairman & CEO of Peoplefluent, the leading Talent Management vendor.

On this first program, Charles and Bill will discuss issues critical to every HR practitioner, including:

  • What is technology changing in HR?
  • How social media will eventually be used within the enterprise.
  • Is the iPad simply going to change everything?
  • How will the individual’s role in the workplace evolve, and how will HR have to accommodate it?
  • What does “gamification” mean, and why should HR care about this hot new trend?
  • And what is a “Private Equity” firm, like Charles’ Bedford Funding, anyway, and why are so many of our software vendors owned by them?

Building on nearly four years of The Bill Kutik Radio Show®, Firing Line with Bill Kutik will feature video interviews with CEO’s of leading HCM vendors – more about what they think, than about what they sell. Because every day, they are changing the technology landscape and workplace for HR practitioners.

Four days before the HR Technology® Conference opens, catch the premiere show and then every program in the upcoming series.
