Show Notes

Now more than ever employees highly value their everyday work experience. Company culture is evolving to encompass the things that make people want to come to work.

In this HRchat episode, we consider the power of music in the workplace.

Bill's guest this time is Jamie Sura, Senior Vice President of Sales for TouchTunes, the jukebox mobile app bringing team-sourced music to help create vibrant and engaging office environments.

Jamie is responsible for driving continuous revenue growth through effective channel management and strategic sales initiatives.

  • TouchTunes has launched a new music solution for workplaces called TouchTunes Unlimited to help create a vibrant and engaging workplace culture for employees. ​Who should select the music played in offices? HR, leaders, employees, all? What checks can be in place to ensure the music is apt for office culture?
