So, what would it be? If you could have one thing in HR for whatever holiday you celebrate this time of year, what would you ask for? And don’t be lame, “Oh Tim, I would just ask for world peace and have Snapple bring back Compassion Berry” No you wouldn’t! Not if it was real, […]
I’m a big fan of DisruptHR and the format! I’ve been part of the team that has run the first three DisruptHR Detroits and in 2020 we’ll do our first DisruptHR Lansing. Five minutes, 20 slides, each slide moves automatically every 15 seconds. Simple, yet so hard to pull off effectively! There are now well […]
Today on the Weekly Dose I take a look at the HR technology startup VantagePoint. VantagePoint is a virtual reality(VR) learning technology company that has produced both sexual harassment and diversity and inclusion training, as well as a training metrics dashboard to go along with their VR training. I’m not sure we are even close […]
When I worked at Applebee’s in HR we talked about terminations as giving someone a “gift”. Every time I tell someone this, they kind of chuckle. “Yeah! Great ‘gift’ I get fired!” Of course, there’s an explanation. Imagine you are working in your dream job (whatever that job might be). You love your job. You […]

There’s a concept that is starting to gain some steam in college tuition funding called “Income Share Agreements”.

I wrote a post titled, “The 5 Things HR Leaders Need to Know About Developing Employees“. In that post I had a paragraph: When I was young in my career, I was very ‘passionate’. That’s what I liked calling it – passionate. I think the leaders I worked with called it, “career derailer”. It took […]
I’m a dude and like most dudes I know, I’m not super organized. I don’t think I’m sloppy, but that’s mostly due to some heavy training by Mrs. Sackett (like decades of training!). The thing is, once you get used to organization, you really notice when things are not organized! One of the recent pop […]
Does your credit report reveal anything about whether you’re a good hire? Or is HR just screwing the pooch (and you)?
True or False? It’s a common belief, in most Talent and HR circles, that most corporate recruiters fear agency recruiters. Go ahead and argue if you would like, but it seems a little silly. The reality is, true recruiting professionals don’t fear amateurs. It’s like a really great professional Photographer. They charge money because they offer […]
I read an article in The New Yorker on the importance of “Coaching” by Atul Gawande. Atul is a writer and a surgeon, smart and creative and I should hate him, but he’s so freaking brilliant! From the article: The concept of a coach is slippery. Coaches are not teachers, but they teach. They’re not […]
