It was great to catch up back in October with some of my favorite LinkedIn folks and friends, Erin Riska, Joel Lalgee, and Liam Darmody! Erin is a fractional talent strategist, full-cycle recruitment partner, and freelance writer, providing foundational and supplemental talent acquisition support to small companies as they scale. Joel is a contract recruiter, podcaster, and, more recently, a consultant to hiring tool Hirewell aiding in business development guided by his personal expertise. Last but never least, Liam is a hot sauce aficionado. I could leave it off there (it’s in his LinkedIn header, folks), but in reality, he is SO much more– he’s a seasoned operations leader with over 15 years of experience building & scaling marketing, sales, customer, & people operations at technology companies.  This Episode’s Heavy-hitter’s: We talk about employee branding and the obstacles to getting employees to share their experiences working with a company. Since employees are unsure of what should and shouldn’t be posted about, they end up not posting at all and a community-building opportunity is missed. Joel actually incentivizes and pays employees to do this! Companies can’t treat all their employees the same. Seasonal employees will be different from full-time, remote employees from On-site, and so on. Companies that will be the most successful need to figure out a balance that works for their employees as individuals. Erin says that the thought that the future is remote is short-sighted. In speaking to people, she finds that most people are tired of looking at the four walls of their homes and want to head back to the office. Everyone on the panel loves quitting! Specifically, each guest breaks down their opinions on quiet quitting. Linked-Influencers; we’re coming for some of you! The panel breaks down their least favorites on the platform towards the end of our talk. #thePOZcast is brought to you by our friends at Interseller – the prospecting + outreach platform of recruiters and sellers. Whether you’re doubling down on business development or recruiting talent, Interseller does all the heavy lifting of finding contact data, automating the email and follow-up process, and syncs all that rich data into 20+ CRMs and ATSs.
