For years, virtual reality (VR) has been synonymous with gaming. Matt Burns, founder of Bento HR and Global HR Summit, is betting VR will be the technology that helps HR transform the way businesses recruit, train, and develop their workforce. Confronted with historic HR challenges from recruitment and retention to reskilling and upskilling, conventional and traditional HR approaches just aren’t working. The problem is that many HR professionals don’t have a clue how VR can be used and the power and the potential it can unlock. I’m excited to welcome Matt Burns to Geeks Geezers Googlization to discuss the future of work, hybrid workplaces, and of course, how your company can make VR work to solve the #1 business challenge for the rest of this decade: skilled labor shortages.

My 2nd guest is Dick Finnegan, Founder of C-Suite Analytics. Dick and Ira S Wolfe will be joining SHRM's July Tune-In-Tuesday show to discuss recruitment, labor shortages, employee retention, and stay interviews. Dick offered a preview of what he'll be presenting at SHRM21 - stay interviews.

Both Dick and Ira will be presenting at the SHRM21 Annual Conference. Ira also will be presenting at the 2021 SHRM Talent Conference.
