The talent shortage is in HR, where a troubling brand of clueless disdain for job applicants destroys companies’ ability to recruit the workers they need. BUSTED: A job applicant exposes HR for what it is — The Spam Department.
So, I’ve written about this in the past, but LRP just announced last week that they will be bringing back The Pitchfest to the 2019 HR Technology Conference in Las Vegas, October 1 – 4. The Pitchfest was my single favorite event at any conference last year! What’s the Pitchfest? “30 HR technology startups will […]
Most boards of companies are made up of current company executives and/or executives from other companies are former executives from other companies. Almost never will you find a “regular Joe” on the board of directors. Last week, a worker’s rights organization, United for Respect, presented to Congress and then to Walmart’s board the idea of […]
For the last ten days, I’ve been at HR and TA conferences. It was the longest, consecutive run of speaking I’ve done in my career. Basically, in ten days I did a total of 14 sessions. I now want to crawl into a dark sensory deprivation chamber for a week! If you haven’t seen me […]

In the corporate world, everyone is a critic! Everyone! We’ve gotten really good at a learned behavior. No longer can we send out a final product the first time. Why? Because everyone wants to trash it and change it so it can be this really nice piece of vanilla crap! Welcome to Corporate America. But […]
I was with some HR Pros recently and one of them shared a standard HR axiom about what we do as HR Pros in the vain of maintaining consistency. If we are wrong in the beginning then we just keep being wrong! It sounds idiotic doesn’t!?! But you see it every single day in HR. […]
Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me on this Gen Z journey. In the last episode, I talked about what verbal and spoken content can do for your recruiting methods, but I think it’s just one side of things to simply hear what a job is like. It takes it to a whole other level […]
Tim Sackett released a tweet last week about a Gen Z coworker not knowing what Kinko’s was. That coworker was me — GUILTY! I have to admit, maybe my lack of awareness of Kinko’s is due to my age, or maybe it’s due to the fact that I grew up in a very small, rural […]
