I had the pleasure of speaking at the Hacking HR event in Atlanta a few weeks back and they were kind enough to allow me to share this video footage with you. While representing the good people at ClickIQ I discussed “Big Brother in the Office.” A good time was had by all. Let me know your thoughts in the comments section and please share any other interesting #technews related to what I have shared. Links to the items I cite in my presentation are in the comments.

McDonald’s raised more than a few eyebrows with a recent announcement. They have pledged to hire more senior citizens in their bid to fill 250,000 summer jobs this year. Wow! In this episode, I discuss the myths and realities of hiring mature workers and how senior citizens are the future of work. | Special thanks to ClickIQ for sponsoring this episode.

Tracking employee health and employee movements may improve overall efficiency and the bottom line of the enterprise but at what cost? When does the collection and tracking of employee data go too far? How much #privacy should an worker expect to have? And most importantly, how will these practices affect the future world of work? I speculate it all with real-life examples, in this special episode of The Jim Stroud Show.
McDonald’s has given up lobbying against a minimum wage increase. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? I explore the pros and cons of raising the minimum wage, how robots and automation factor in and the effect on the fast food industry in this episode of “The Jim Stroud Show.” I also make comparisons to the retail sector and how the future of work for the retail industry might adapt.
