Workplace Champions: The strategies of talent-minded business leaders are exposed inside the realm of mid-sized businesses when business journalist Jack Sweeney and performance thought leader Brett Knowles spotlight innovations in human capital management (HCM). The Workplace Champions Podcast is all about inspiring business leaders as they learn from the failures, Ah-ha! moments, and workplace successes of other small and medium business leaders. It’s no secret that small and mid-sized businesses adapt more aggressively and innovate more nimbly than firms many times their size. And yet, in the realm of employment these companies are less visible and vastly less reported upon than large enterprise business, but their combined influence is large and growing larger as a new class of workplace champions emerge.

Achieving a Talent Transformation

I just enjoyed Jack's recent interview with Justin Teasdale, co-founder of 7 Corners, an international travel insurance firm. Jack and performanc thought leader Brett Knowles spotlight innovators in HCM (human capital management) who share experiences and insights to help listeners with their HCM issues. Well done and much-needed, Jack and Brett!

This show feels like free business consulting!

Building and growing a small business is so hard and there's so much to learn. I love that this podcast shares so much knowledge in easily digestible segments. The guests and the host are top notch and so far I've learned 3 valuable pieces of knowledge that I feel will transform my business success. Highly recommend!
