Suggestions or Introductions Appreciated - Podcasts or Speaking

Hi ASQ friends,

I don't know about you, but the attrition and the Great Resignation stats are alarming. I really think it's important to stem the tide and help businesses sidestep this challenge wherever possible because our economy is at stake.

I've been supporting small-med sized businesses through this for the past few years and there are many DIY and no-cost activities that can be undertaken right now and I want to start amplifying the info.

Do any of you have suggestions for podcasts or speaking opportunities, or better yet, can you make any introductions? I'm not looking for paid gigs, this is 100% community outreach and support. It's a matter of values, and it's the mission of my firm, L-12 Services.

All help, guidance, and intros are appreciated. If I have a legacy, helping businesses survive this moment in time while retaining their biggest asset (THEIR PEOPLE) would be a great one.

Thank you for being in community and for collaborating with me,

I think the idea of a podcast is amazing. But then I started thinking about the content of the podcast it would be a bit of a dry listening, if there is such a thing.

It's something I'm interested in. I've passively search for podcast dealing with this since I am a fan of podcasts. But what subjects would be discussed? How do we keep people engaged in this discussion and not force them to listen to a lecture?

Many people are working with confidentiality clauses which prevent them from commenting on real-world experience. But they're always ways around such things.

Would genuinely love to see how to get around this? And would offer any resources I have in the furtherance of this goal.

Hi @Lizabeth Wesely-Casella - I suggest reaching out to your local section leadership. Many are looking for speakers.

Great topic to share!


Thanks so much, @Trish Borzon!

I appreciate the guidance and hope you have a great week!

If you're still looking at podcast opportunities - I have found the Gemba Academy podcasts to be about as interesting as the topic can be for that format. Perhaps reaching out to them is worthwhile:

Thank you so much @benjamin coveleskie! I really appreciate it!

Hi Lizabeth. The Quality Progress team is working on an article for later this year, on how Covid-19 has affected careers and hiring practices. If you could suggest a couple of questions about how organizations might try to increase employee retention, we'd find that very helpful.
