Villanova HR Tea Podcast

HR Tea is a podcast featuring interviews with HR Leaders, Researchers, Students, and Influencers. HR Tea takes trending topics and research in human resources, steeps them for 30 minutes or less and leaves you with fresh-brewed ideas on how to drive high-performing, inclusive organizations and create meaningful work experiences. HR Tea is brought to you by Villanova HRD, the Graduate Programs in Human Resource Development at Villanova University.

What does curiosity have to do with people analytics? Is there a dark side to diversity and inclusion? Can human resources really make a difference in the lives of employees? How do these things relate? Find out in Season 1 of HR Tea (2019)
