I’m asking a favor. I do this extremely rarely as a blogger. But I know the power of our HR community worldwide! We have a bright, shining star in our industry who is in need of a miracle. If you haven’t heard SHRM’s Field Service Director, Callie Zipple has recently been diagnosed with Stage 4 […]
Yesterday I got to have an amazing experience in London. I was invited to speak at RecFest! What’s RecFest? RecFest is the brainchild of Jamie Leonard and the team over at Recruitment Events. It started five years ago with 95 participants. Yesterday it sold out with 3,000 in attendance. RecFest is an outdoor recruiting ‘conference’ […]
Stuff happens. We make bad decisions. We do stupid stuff. Sometimes it all ends with us having to apologize for being dumb or just not thinking straight at that moment. So, we apologize. For a while now I’ve been watching people do stupid stuff, apologizing, but those who are receiving the apology are not accepting […]
Marketplace apps and websites are increasingly integrating artificial intelligence (AI) into their consumer and backend processes. It’s a trend that shows no signs of slowing down – and why should it? AI in marketplaces holds the potential to “radically simplify the selling experience,” said OLX co-founder and former CEO Fabrice Grinda. The Harvard Business review, […]
I have expectations as a leader in my organizations for other employees who are in a leadership position in my company. One of those expectations is, if I call or text you on off hours, weekends, vacations, etc., for something that is urgent to the business, I expect a reply in a rather short time […]
I had a big learning recently. Might seem like a pretty obvious thing for me, but I really didn’t understand how it was shaping my thought process. Politically, right now in our country, we’re a mess. You can actually love America and being an American, and you’re not a racist. I wasn’t sure that was […]
June was Pride month and as it wrapped up on Sunday I was loving all the pictures on my social feeds from New York and really all over the world. It really made me think about why I’m an Ally for this community. Where did it all start? I was in seventh grade when my […]
Seemingly biased employers suddenly turn out to be friendly and welcoming to disabled job seekers when dollar signs appear on the resume.
A few days ago this thought came to me: “What is the worst advice I’ve ever given anyone?’ Usually, in a case like this the first thing you think of is usually correct! In my case, I came up with a number of things right away, none of which really seemed like the worst advice, […]
Tokyo-based leading ATS vendor HR Solutions has collaborated with a transportation company International Business Bus (国際興業バス) to launch an area-specific job-matching site for the passengers.
I absolutely love going to the SHRM National Conference. I’ve been 8 out of the last 9 years. I’ve spoken at many. I’ve been a part of the blogger team at many. I’ve had real conversations with real HR and Talent pros at every single one. If I was advising HR and TA Technology vendor […]
Lawbasket, an online marketplace for Africa-based lawyers to offer their professional services to small businesses and individuals across the continent, has launched in Zimbabwe.
Just flying back from the SHRM National Conference. This SHRM conference was the biggest ever. Over 20,000 HR and TA pros and leaders all in one location. Thousands of others from vendors and support staff. It was a bit crazy and awesome all at the same time. When you go into the expo of SHRM […]
