What Is HR Studio Podcast?
HR Studio Podcast is a bi-weekly podcast designed to support the development of aspiring, new and established HR leaders. Each episode runs between 15 to 30 minutes and is designed for listening during the average drive time.
Launched in March 2016, our podcast is now a Top 20 HR Podcast (Feedspot); a Best Human Resources Podcast (Player.fm) and a top 10 podcast in The Ultimate Guide to the Best HR Podcasts [2019 Update].
In early 2015, we embarked on a journey to discover how HR professionals learn, grow and develop professionally. HR is responsible for the most critical success factor within any organization; its people. HR takes a leadership role in acquiring and developing talent, including future organizational leaders. So, how does HR develop its own leaders? Three themes emerged - mentoring, formal leadership development and learning from those with deep expertise and proven success in the field. This was an ah-ha moment in the creation of HR Studio Podcast. We could find no other podcast forum dedicated to supporting the development of HR leaders and done in a way that meets needs and preferences.
The goal is quite simply to bridge the gap with a forum for HR leaders, dedicated to their growth and development. HR Studio Podcast is designed to build the next generation of HR leaders through a combination of:
- Career and leadership development advice from those who made it to the top in HR
- Insights from HR trend spotters, authors and keynote speakers
- Thought-provoking discussion on the future of the profession and what it takes to be successful in HR
- Unique, relevant content that is not available elsewhere
- A network of HR professionals of all career levels who can contribute to the conversation
From its inception, the HR Studio Podcast project has evolved and grown in scope. We began by focusing primarily on the career journeys of senior HR leaders, including CHROs. As our journey evolved, we found phenomenal keynote speakers, industry thought leaders and consultants whose contributions to the field of HR and leadership development were important to include. The end result is a podcast and community to help HR leaders listen, learn and leverage.
We hope you'll share your takeaways, leadership journeys and ideas by listening and joining the conversation.
