This is my last post as Executive Director of the Workforce Institute. This podcast is a conversation between incoming Executive Director Chris Mullen. Like the Beatles said, Hello Goodbye.
This is it, the last post from me. When I wrote my first post, on October 2, 2007, I never foresaw that I’d still be posting almost thirteen years later. At that time, we were experimenting, but not sure how far we’d take the Workforce Institute.
We’ve taken it pretty far. Over 800 blog posts and podcasts. 4 books. And so many wonderful HR experts who’ve lent a hand as board members, guest bloggers, podcast interview subjects, and book contributors.
I am thrilled that Chris Mullen is picking up the reins. Chris is a current Workforce Institute advisory board member and director of human capital management (HCM) strategic advisory services at Kronos. He has more than 15 years of experience as an HR leader and practitioner, having served as director of HR for Housing and Dining Services at the University of Colorado, where he managed the HR needs of more than 2,000 employees. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Northern Colorado with a research focus on work-life balance and the use of mobile technology.
In this, my last podcast for the WFI, I ask Chris about his vision for its future and he asks me how I’m feeling about walking away. You can listen in on our conversation on the player below.
Goodbye, everyone. It’s been a great ride!
