Great podcast which goes deep into work culture

I haven’t found any podcast that specifically dives deep into the work culture until I heard this podcast.

Chris and his guests discuss all things related to culture, teams, diversity and provide great insights not only for people in HR but any person who is interested in building and working in a highly productive and diverse workforce.

Katie Joy B. ,

Human resource heroes!

Chris and his incredibly knowledgeable guests shine the brightest of lights on the HR industry and the hardworking people in it! Informative, encouraging, and engaging are just a few of the words I'd use to describe the time you'll spend with them. Thanks so much for putting out such a superb show Chris - keep up the great work!
