A different kind of human capital podcast

There’s never been a more exciting or compelling time to be in the workforce. Technological advances like artificial intelligence and virtual reality are transforming how work gets done, who does it, and even how it’s defined. Organizations are feeling the pressure to be good citizens by combining revenue growth and profitmaking with the need for a dedication to their community and stakeholder networks.

Our human capital podcast explores the growing significance of these changes so you can get ahead of the important forces shaping the workforce, the workplace, and the changing nature of work itself. Tune in to hear perspectives from business and industry leaders who are putting humans at the center of work, inspiring you to learn and lead.

Episode 1: Where performance meets purpose

When is it right for companies to take a public stand on social issues? We explore what it means to be a social enterprise, one whose mission combines revenue growth and profitmaking with respect and support for a broader community of stakeholders. Our guest, Gideon Maltz, executive director of Tent Partnership for Refugees, discusses how companies can effectively combine social and business purpose, leveraging their core business to make a much bigger impact than financial support alone can make.
