Sesame Street begins its 50th season on November 9th and it really got me thinking about the lessons and characters I grew up with watching this iconic show. As I thought about it, I began to connect people in my own organization and how Sesame Street is really just a snapshot of our own professional […]
In case you didn’t see the job posting by Snoop Dogg, on this staff (yes, giant mogul rapper/entertainers have staffs) he has a person who’s sole job is to role blunts (for the Baby Boomers in the crowd – a blunt is joint, a marijuana cigarette, if you will). What’s the quote? Do a job […]
Like most stuff I write, I try to break down things in HR and TA that we make way more complicated than it really is. We’re just hiring people, and trying to get the most out of our employees that we can. We aren’t launching the space shuttle or performing brain surgery. This stuff really […]
Columnist, Jeff Haden, wrote an article called “Ten Things You Should Never Say When Firing an Employee“ in which he tries to give good advice, in typical HR fashion of over-reducing risk, in how you should speak, or not speak, to an individual regarding their near termination.

LinkedIn has filed for a review of a landmark appeals court decision last month that sided with a company that’s been scraping user information from LinkedIn against its wishes.
I love HR Technology. You all know that. So, I was super excited to get invited to Workday Rising since it’s arguably the hottest HR Tech company on the planet, and quite frankly, in the past, they really haven’t engaged the influencer community much, and probably didn’t need to with all of their success. I’m […]
The unemployment rate is at notable low levels of 3.7% as of August 2019. These low rates make competition for talent fierce. Businesses are turning to employer branding to increase their probability of a kill. They perceive a strong employer brand as a necessity for attracting, engaging, and retaining top talent.
Tadeusz Kuropatwiński has joined Agora’s recruitment site GoldenLine as its new CEO. The company also appointed several other staff for various management positions.
I’m out at Workday Rising this week in Orlando and yesterday I got the pleasure of listening to Lin-Manuel Miranda speak for the morning keynote. For those who follow me socially, I’ve seen Hamilton the musical four times (almost a 5th, but I got swindled!). So, I’m a bit of a super fan! Hamilton tickets […]
I got to see Marcus Buckingham speak at the HR Technology Conference in Vegas a couple of weeks ago. I think it’s the 2319th time I’ve seen him speak. I’m not sure if I’ve seen Marcus or Josh Bersin speak more, it’s probably almost a tie. Basically, if you go to HR conferences, you get […]
Here’s what happens when unethical employers use job interviews to cheat the best talent. Join us and share your story.
At every talk I do I put up a logo slide. All of the logos that I personally support in my normal, everyday work world. My company HRU Tech. My blog, The TS Project (this one right here!). Fistful of Talent, where I still write, and the Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals (ATAP). I always […]
The first time I wrote that in a post, it was 2012 with a post called, “Hire More Beautiful People!“. In 2014, it was, “Do Managers Have a Bias for Hiring Attractive People!” (Spoiler Alert – Yes!) In 2016, I doubled down as the science continued to tell us, pretty people, make the best employees […]
