I run a small business. When I need to know something, I usually reach out to my employees and find out what they think. It’s not some big fancy ‘research’ survey with thousands of responses, but it’s real. Recently, I wanted to know what people might want in terms of a recognition award. Ironically, what […]
Do you really believe that today’s U.S. unemployment rate is at the lowest level since 1969? Well I don’t, and I’m getting tired of the constant overhype about how this is possibly the greatest market for job seekers ever, and that anyone who wants a job can find one. That’s because the current job market […]

A big announcement yesterday over at Ford where 7,000 or so white-collar workers will be getting laid off. For generations of automotive families, this is really anything new.

I was speaking to a group of HR pros and leaders recently and this 50-ish-year-old guy says this to me, “Tim, I hear you telling everyone we should be texting candidates, but my candidates don’t want me to text them!” Really!?! What I really say: “If you are in talent acquisition today and you are […]
Hiring platform Montage merged with Shaker International, a provider of talent intelligence and assessment solutions. Terms weren’t disclosed.
Hiring people to work for you directly is probably the single hardest thing you’ll ever have to do as a manager of people. To be fair, most people are average at hiring, some are flat out killing it, and probably 20% are awful at hiring. The first sign you suck at hiring is your new […]
Brown-noser. Suck-up. Kiss-A**. These are the terms you’ll hear. Pay them no mind, white-collar worker. You’re here to win.
