I love reading trend predictions, but also enjoy the thoughtful look-back. Makes me wish I’d saved some of those workforce articles from the 9o’s. Lotus Notes. Personal Digital Assistants. Beavis and Butthead. Causal Fridays. While I don’t miss the drama over what “casual” Fridays vs. jeans Fridays meant, there is a nostalgia that gets me […]
The headline on a story in this week’s Wall Street Journal said it all: Welcome to the Post-Weinstein Holiday Party. What followed was 1,400 depressing words that basically said, without actually saying it, something that you probably already know — the company holiday party as we know it is officially dead and gone.

Years ago, when I was in college recruiting, the company I worked for hosted a massive college event….courting the best and brightest to join our small telecom company in Germantown, Maryland.
