Talking HR 017: HR 2.0 - with book review: Collaboration (show notes)


    One of the titles Krishna and I considered using for “Talking HR” when we were setting it up last Summer was “HR 2.0” and in this episode, we talk about what we and other people mean by this term.

It’s clearly something to do with web 2.0 (which we discussed in episode 016).  But there’s also a potential link with management 2.0 which is explained in Gary Hamel’s recent book.  Referring back to his recent Bucharest presentation, Jon argues that the link is the social nature of the 2.0 tag (social media / more social management) and in fact, the differentiation between HR and HR 2.0 is the latter’s focus on producing social capital.

We also hear from James Tastard, VP of Corporate HR at Aker Solutions in Houston, Texas, about his views on HR / management / web 2.0.  Thanks enormously for your contribution James!


Krishna also talks about the new hiring network, Worky.  And Jon discusses recent CIPD findings on job satisfaction.


And we review a new book, ‘Collaboration’.
