We celebrate 225 weekly episodes by answering YOUR questions!  Middle management, where HR's headed, dream podcast guests, diamonds, ice cream, and exploding luggage are among the topics of conversation. Jon also gives a brief state of the podcast. Don't worry, we're not going anywhere but we could sure use your help in spreading the word and following/subscribing if you're not already.

Nicky Hoyland invited Wendy to attend the Unleash America conference in Las Vegas so they decided to take some time to review the conference for you! The speakers at the conference really focused on how to put the employee first in a wide variety of experiences. This was Wendy's first in-person conference since October 2019 and Nicky's second. We talk speakers, vendors, beer, and all the awesome food!

We're joined by Ben Travis, Founder of HR Chief in Richmond, VA.  We talk about his path to HR tech, going on a travel sabbatical during a global pandemic, launching HR Chief, and why Ben thinks organizations need to take "big swings." It was a pleasure to finally have Ben on the show, Jon thought he'd appeared before (that's how involved he's been in our community).
