Rebels or Realists? The Rise of Career Activists in America Peter Weddle, CEO Weddle's Research & Publications
A new movement is sweeping through the nation’s workforce. It has the power to decimate or to revitalize an organization’s ability to compete in the global economy. Its members aren’t free agents; they are “freed agents” – men and women of all generations who have transformed themselves into persons of talent and can, as a result, decide where and how they will be employed. They are citizens of the Career Activist Republic, and they will determine the future of American business.
Peter Weddle has been the CEO of three HR consulting companies, a Partner in the Hay Group and the recipient of a Federal award for leadership-related research. Described by The Washington Post as "... a man filled with ingenious ideas," he has authored or edited over two dozen books and been a columnist for The Wall Street Journal, National Business Employment Weekly and CNN.com. He is also the CEO of WEDDLE's Research & Publications which speacializes in employment and workforce issues. WEDDLE’s Guides to Internet employment sites are the gold standard of their genre, leading the American Staffing Association to call Weddle the “Zagat of the online employment industry.” His most recent books, The Career Activist Republic and Work Strong: Your Personal Career Fitness System, offer a frank yet positive assessment of the challenges and opportunities available to working men and women in 21st Century America. Weddle is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point. He has attended Oxford University and holds advanced degrees from Middlebury College and Harvard University.
