That HR Podcast episode 2: Who manages the managers?

14 May 2018 By PM Editorial

In the second episode of People Management's new podcast, we explore the UK’s bad management problems with our experts; learn the value of a well-timed joke in the workplace; and agony uncle Tim Pointer answers your queries

That HR Podcast is back, and this month we’re asking – just what makes a good manager? Our expert panel explore the link between spiking employment tribunals and the UK’s ongoing managerial deficit; and an HR-manager-turned-comedian explains why telling jokes during an interview might be the key to landing your next dream job. Plus, agony uncle Tim Pointer advises a listener who has found family and work make a tricky combination. 

Join People Management staff writer Emily Burt on the podcast that takes the pulse of HR – and don't forget to give us your feedback by tweeting us at @peoplemgt or email pmeditorial@haymarket.com.

• Professor Sir Cary Cooper, psychologist and president of the CIPD, and Pash Reddy, head of learning at Deloitte
