Human Capital Institute CEO to Be Featured Guest on The Bill Kutik Radio Show

Carl Rhodes to Discuss the Human Capital Challenges and Successes of Prominent Companies

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 24, 2014) - The Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global institution for strategic talent management, today announced that Chief Executive Officer Carl Rhodes will appear as this week's featured guest on The Bill Kutik Radio Show®. During his appearance, Rhodes will discuss the challenges and solutions achieved at three leading companies: Adobe, Macy's and McGrawHill.

The Bill Kutik Radio Show is a bi-weekly online talk show hosted by Bill Kutik, a leading independent analyst in the HR technology marketplace. Produced by Appirio, the show features unedited and unrehearsed conversations with some of the industry's key thought leaders. Rhodes will be the featured guest on Wednesday, February 26, 2014, airing at 12:00 noon EST, 9:00 a.m. PST.

Big organizations solve big problems -- sometimes with technology, sometimes not -- from which smaller companies can learn a lot. During his appearance on The Bill Kutik Radio Show, Rhodes will explain how three leading companies solved their biggest problems and share how they were able to drive business outcomes and achieve success. Specifically, he will investigate the challenges of performance management at Adobe, employee recognition and rewards at Macy's, and talent mobility at McGraw Hill, while exploring the strategies and solutions each company chose to implement. Offering practical advice and industry insights, Rhodes will detail how other organizations can learn from these examples and ensure the success of their own human capital.

"In his five years at HCI (including two years as COO), Carl Rhodes has helped to build the organization into a powerhouse with more than 200,000 members and 200+ underwriters. Among many activities he oversees are the organization's 180 webinars per year and seven conferences.
