JOIN Barb and John as they discuss the latest news of the week, including Barr’s interference with Roger Stone’s sentencing, his lie to the American people about it, and why Barr needs to be removed as AG. John and Barb will also touch on early voting in Iowa and New Hampshire and why we need a National Primary.
Joining the show during the second hour is author and Founder of Topia, Brynne Kennedy. Brynne will be discussing her new book, Flat, Fluid, and Fast: Harness the Talent Mobility Revolution to Drive Employee Engagement, Accelerate Innovation, and Unleash Growth.
Within five years, Millennials and Gen Z will make up 60 percent of the workforce. Unlike prior generations, today’s younger workers switch jobs frequently–25 percent of Americans ages 29 to 44 have completely changed fields since starting their career, based on recent studies–and place a premium on working flexibly. Combining demographic facts with the force of technology, more people work in different ways–as freelance or gig workers; from their homes or while traveling the world. Yet, most organizations cling to traditional office spaces, work schedules, and ways of managing, motivating, and compensating their workforce.
Entrepreneur, businesswoman, and Congressional candidate Brynne Kennedy recognizes the imperative of overhauling standard operating and HR practices for any company that aims to stay in business. In Flat, Fluid, and Fast, Kennedy offers a comprehensive guide to help business leaders, managers, and HR professionals to help continually attract workers with the skills to do the jobs their company needs to succeed and to transition existing employees into new jobs when market disruptions demand a different workforce.
Brynne will discuss key actions for business leaders to take to create a flat, fluid, and fast (F3) company in addition to providing key actions for HR professionals to take to support an F3 company. She’ll also describe five policies to unleash a flat, fluid, and fast economy.
