timsackett.com

You might not have noticed but Americans treat their dogs and cats much better than we treat most people. I’m not sure exactly what that says about our society. I like to believe that it’s an evolved behavior. A society that treats animals well probably on average treats all things better, but the cynical part […]

When Did Causal Friday Die?
timsackett.com

I love the fact that at some point almost every industry decided that it was mostly stupid to wear suits and ties and dresses to work. Even more, Business Casual has mostly died out as well. I can’t tell you how many F500 organizations I go into where the head of HR or head of […]

The Top 18 Articles of 2018 – #11 It’s Not About Years of Experience but About Skills
www.sourcecon.com

If we start reading job advertisements from various industries, we will see that the employers require experience in most of these ads. We see things like “at least five-plus years’ experience,” “ten-plus years’ experience in a similar role,” etc. In some cases, it makes sense to inform a candidate how much experience is needed for […]

I read an article recently where a “former” Google HR executive shared his wisdom. (editor side note – are all Google HR executives “Former”? Have you ever heard from a “current” Google HR executive?

Their Physical Appearance (I.E., Sorry we aren’t club-ready – I was up with a sick kid all night!) […]

The Non-Smoker Smoke Break!
timsackett.com

Let’s break down some math on the amount of time smokers take, paid, in smoke breaks daily:  An average smoker smokes 15 cigarettes per day. I’m going to assume that when awake the smoker smokes about 1 cigarette per hour, so that’s 40 cigarettes per week smoked at work.  It takes about 5 minutes to […]
