Talking HR 016: Web 2.0 and HR - with book review: Reward Systems (show notes)


     In this show, we bring together previous discussions about individual social technologies to talk about web 2.0 as a whole.  Jon reviews Graeme Martin’s new report and session at the CIPD’s HRD conference, and previews his own presentation at a HR 2.0 conference in Romania.  And Krishna warns that social media may not always be appropriate.

Given this show’s book review: Steve Kerr’s Reward Systems, we also consider the application of web 2.0 to reward (not the most obvious area of application).

Jon also talks about the effect’s of the UK’s budget, and the new Equalities Bill, questioning whether its easier to introduce change when time is good, or more difficult.

Krishna talks about swine flu and the need for HR to prepare for shocks like this.  She also recommends a new book: The Big Manifesto.

And we also review another book: Reward Systems.
