Marriott International releases new episodes of original podcast series

Marriott International said it recently launched an original podcast series, The Wandernaut Show, providing listeners an opportunity to scratch beyond the surface of the world at work.

The show features light-hearted, authentic conversations that tackle topics related to workplace dynamics — all in an accessible and entertaining format. In recent episodes, David Rodriguez, Marriott´s Executive Vice President and Global Chief Human Resources Officer, mixes it up with show host, Alex Wandernaut, to dissect those over-used business buzzwords — and have a little fun.

The company said that Rodriguez attempts to get to the truth behind such buzzworded statments as: “Let´s leverage that synergy to ideate on an innovative strategy that our matrixed team of high-potentials can execute against to deliver high impact, game-changing results.”

The first six episodes of the original podcast series explored the disruptive forces unleashing accelerated generational change and the path to employee wellbeing and sustainable organizational effectiveness.

In the latest episodes, Rodriguez talks with host Alex Wandernaut to decode business jargon such as high-potentials, innovation and the ubiquitous matrix organization. (Hint: Every organization is “matrixed” whether they recognize it or not.)

Listen in to hear for example, why many organizations may have it wrong in their approach to attract and retain top talent. The Wandernaut Show will continue to evolve with more topics related to the world at work.

Listeners can access The Wandernaut Show below or subscribe via SoundCloud and iTunes. You can also access the podcasts on YouTube by searching: wandernaut.
