Excellent podcast with wonderful people. It was very informative and entertaining to listen too.
This podcast was excellent! It is only relevent if you are in the staffing industry but the advice applies to all sides of the business: suppliers, HR, technology providers, and of course business leaders who use Temporary workers. The strategies are genius and they are explained in a fun way! I am definitely subscribing!
This podcast was very entertaining as in I wasn’t checking my watch to see when it would end instead you guys, Brianna and JP, captivated my full attention. Another thing that stuck out was that you guys were very linear in the way you spoke. What do I mean? I mean that JP gave us the three steps very clearly instead of speaking his knowledge without a guideline. Every time I listen to someone give a speech, lesson, etc. I appreciate those who give guidelines for their knowledge like giving numbered steps. I appreciate you guys very much and hope y’all are doing well and staying sane during this chaotic time.
