Alvarez brings fresh perspective to top human resource industry radio show

(November 1, 2019) – David Ciullo, host and founder of HR Power Hour, is pleased to welcome Tawny Alvarez, partner in Verrill’s Employment & Labor Group, as co-host. The HR Power Hour radio show airs every Saturday from 10-11am (EST) on News Talk WLOB, 1310 AM, 100.5 FM and online at wlobradio.com. It can also be downloaded at hrpowerhour.com.

Alvarez has been a longtime contributor and guest, bringing more than a decade of experience in labor and employment issues across New England to HR Power Hour. Her experience has taught her that the HR landscape is not static, but ever-changing, and that employers must adapt and stay ahead of the curve.

“I am very happy to have Tawny be a partner on the show and have watched her grow in her guest host duties and now graduate to co-host,” said Ciullo. “She is a strong up and coming HR advisor to clients and brings keen insight that will be great for interviewing guests and providing content to our listeners.”

Founded in 2012 by Ciullo, HR Power Hour covers a wide variety of human resource topics, ranging from corporate culture and benefits to selling a business and creating a legacy. The show is broadcast from Portland, Maine and has listeners across the country. Each week the show is built around a current topic and features expert guests from a wide variety of professions.

“From marijuana in the workplace to implementing paid leave policies, there are always new considerations in the HR world,” said Alvarez. “I look forward to highlighting these top of mind topics on HR Power Hour, throwing in some legal perspective, and highlighting how companies are complying with the law while simultaneously creating amazing places to work.”

Ciullo and Alvarez will share hosting roles and work together on the development of show content, while ownership of HR Power Hour will remain with Ciullo. For more information and to listen to past episodes, please visit hrpowerhour.com
