The Talent Waste Show – S1 Ep1 with Rachel Barr

Our first guest is Rachel Barr. Rachel has over 20 years as a Talent Acquisition professional, with global experience across EMEA, Asia Pacific and Australia. Rachel has worked for global banking institutes such as Credit Suisse, Anz, Barclays and her current role at Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation.

Every fortnight Apprentice Winner, Founder, and CEO of Phoenix51 – Lee McQueen will be joined by industry leaders in the HR and Talent Acquisition space.

The podcast is called ‘The Talent Waste Show’ and we discuss current challenges in HR & Recruitment and our best advice for professionals in the industry.

Phoenix51 coined the term ‘Talent Waste’ after realising a global problem in the industry. Talent Waste affects organisations across all industries. It occurs when employees leave an organisation prematurely due to the business not being able to retain them.

Join us each fortnight to hear expert insights in HR and Talent space. Check our event page or look for our email to find our next event, join us live to ask questions and connect with your fellow professionals.
