Why does HR try to drink from a fire hose?
I’ve gotten a chance to work both sides of the fence for an extended period of time in the Talent Acquisition/Recruiting/Staffing game. For ten years I ran corporate talent acquisition shops for some very large organizations. One organization spent over $3M annually on staffing agency fees! Obviously, prior to my getting there! I’ve spent almost […]
I’m trained as an HR pro to pick up on ‘red flags’ in interviewing, in employee behavior, potential turnover risks, etc. Sometimes those red flags are really obvious. I tease my staff all the time, but missing time on Mondays and Fridays, unexcused time, is a red flag. It says something about how you feel […]
Leading Spanish job boards, InfoEmpleo.com (owned by Vocento) and InfoJobs.net (owned by Adevinta), are addressing labor market issues including age discrimination and worker dissatisfaction.
With all the heatwave stuff hitting the news this week I’m assuming someone has gotten this request. I get it, if you’re working outside, this could be dangerous! I’m not talking to you! I’m talking to the moron who works a job inside, but somehow they think it’s too hot outside to get their butt […]
I’ve got some great friends in my life. People who support me in my professional field. I’ve got cheerleaders that are on my side hoping I succeed in everything I do. Do you have cheerleaders? Do you have a cheerleader? I think if you have one your life is richer. It’s not about who has […]

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 […]
