I am substituting my regularly scheduled episode of “The Jim Stroud Podcast” for this special episode.
A little over a decade ago, I co-hosted “The Recruiters Lounge Podcast” with my pal – Karen Mattonen. It was very successful podcast at the time and in celebration of it, I have recently launched “The Retro Lounge” podcast which republishes the original episodes. As a sneak preview of the type of banter we shared discussing diverse HR issues, tune in to this special reunion episode where Karen and I meander across the following topics:

The Retro Lounge is a look back into the archives of “The Recruiters Lounge Podcast w/Jim Stroud and Karen Mattonen.” The Recruiters Lounge Podcast posted weekly between the years of 2005 – 2010. With energy, wit and opposite points of view, Jim Stroud and Karen Mattonen discussed, debated and squabbled like children over HR issues that affected the workplace and society overall.
Today’s episode, “HOW TO MAKE MONEY WITH ONLINE JOB SCAMS,” originally aired on March 27, 2009. And in this episode we discussed a recruiter who was facing possible time in jail for charging job seekers a fee for finding them work. Is what he did actually illegal? Was it really a scam, or was it just a badly executed business plan? You may be surprised.
Corporate wellness programs are in the mainstream and they are intended to be a win-win situation for the company and the employee. For the most part, such seems to be the case. However, the road to hell is paved with good intentions and the programs intended to bless could become a curse. In this episode, I speculate on the possibilities.
