In Episode 17, we interview Ben McIntyre, founder of Internpreneur, a new company in Nashville that helps companies connect to interns and design and execute impactful internship programs. In HR Current Events, we discuss a new court case in Wisconsin, EEOC vs. Orion Energy Systems, a potentially landmark case about corporate wellness programs. In HR Pop Culture, we discuss news about more female characters reportedly coming to the script of HBO’s season 2 of Silicon Valley. And in That’s Dumb with Kristin, we talk about that phone call to the recruiter where a would-be candidate needs assistance deciding whether or not to apply.
