Robots are Now Hiring Humans

Something historic happened this week in the world of work. Listen to this headline from Daily Star – “Robot hires human being in world first as AI conducts job interview.” Yes, you heard that correctly, robots are now making hiring decisions on behalf of companies. I’ll talk about this and the overall effects of tech on society in this episode of my show.

The Future of Marketing is Product Placement

I stumbled across this article on Gizmodo and was sucked into reading it by the headline and the first few lines of the article. The headline is “North Face Apologizes for Showing Us the Future of Marketing” and here is a short quote, “This week The North Face pulled off a clever marketing stunt that continues to deliver. Even following the company’s retraction and apology, the glittering underhandedness of the campaign will inspire marketing scum for generations.” Hah! I discuss what happened on this episode. | Special thanks to my sponsor –SupaPass!

Would you take the death test?

Do you want to know when you will die? Believe it or not, scientists have developed a blood test that predicts whether or not you will die from natural causes over the next 10 years. Such being the case, would you take the test? I delve into the possibilities on this episode of “The Jim Stroud Show.” | Special thanks to my sponsor – SupaPass!

Is the future of work at home or at the office?

Do you work in an office or from home? According to a 2017 Gallup study, 43% of Americans report spending at least some time working remotely, so chances are you do some work from home. Depending on who you ask, that’s a good thing. Working from home allows workers the flexibility to maintain that careful work-life balance and companies benefit from the increased productivity. So, working remote is a win-win all around or… is it? (dun, dun, dun…)

In this episode of “The Jim Stroud Podcast” I report on the good and bad of remote work while asking the question, is the future of work at home or at the office?

The Future of Work is Racism

Some people think the United States is a racist country. If America is a racist country, wouldn’t that make the American workplace racist as well? Possibly. The demographics of America are rapidly changing and where there are differences there is inevitable conflict. Some of the issues are a result of ignorance to the differences represented in various cultures and as a result, racism rears its ugly head to diverse degrees.

I discuss the state of racism in the American workplace and why I think it will become worse in years to come. At the same time, I defend my country because I do not believe America is immutably racist. Tune in for a very thought provoking episode. | Click here to read the transcript and download the show notes. | Special thanks to our sponsor – Supapass!
