Welcome to Episode 233 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast we talk with HR consultant Sam Tanios about the challenges small and mid-sized businesses face with respect to employee engagement and other HR issues. Through his company, Human Elements Consulting, Sam helps smaller businesses take a proactive approach to HR so that employees buy into the company’s values, vision and mission. Sam explains that, when you invest in your employees, the ROI is tremendous because the #1 driver of success is your customers’ experience. And the #1 driver of customer experience is employee engagement.


So if you want to know:

  • What you need to “sell” to your employees — and why
  • Why even small companies can and should have a CPO — “chief people officer”
  • The importance of taking steps that employees can see — don’t “tell me” but rather “show me”
  • How a “digital transformation” needs to accompany your “human transformation”
  • Five things to look for when hiring an HR consultant
