My wife always says “Your ACTIONS are your BRAND” and I totally believe that…

So today, it’s a “Your ACTIONS are your BRAND” SHRED of News… In this segment we call out stupid shit companies do in front of the whole wide world.

Today we’re talking about two things that you wouldn’t think go together, but they actually do…

Thing 1
Mississippi US Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith makes a public remark while campaigning. She said in public with microphones and people all around and I quote “if he invited me to a public hanging I’d be in the front row.” close quote.

Let that sink in…..

Thing 2
Ernst & Young became a DiversityInc Hall of Fame inductee for Diversity and Inclusion

Now let’s put these two love birds together shall we?
After Cindy Hyde-Smith made the “public hanging / lynching” comment Ernst and Young donated money to the Cindy Hyde-Smith campaign. WTF? You mean the same Ernst and Young who made DiversityInc’s Hall of Fame? I know right?

The question for Ernst and Young — How can you support diversity & inclusion then donate money to the “hanging is funny” Hyde-Smith campaign in Mississippi, yes Mississippi the state most notably known for lynching. Yet, Hyde-Smith thinks “jokes” about lynching are acceptable. Maybe it’s because she attended a one of Mississippi’s segregation academies? I didn’t even know segregation academies existed.

Ernst & Young you’re on notice because – Your ACTIONS are your BRAND.

After feeling the social heat this weekend Ernst and Young have asked the Hyde-Smith campaign for their donation back, but is it too damn late Ernst and Young especially since the money was donated after the Hyde-Smith “hanging” comment.

REMEMBER… Your ACTIONS are your BRAND and we’re watching. Well that brings us to the end of this episode of stupid shit companies do when they think nobody is looking.

On to the NEWS..
The market is tanking BUT venture money is still flowing…
WORKABLE – touted flexible, global, easy-to-use hiring software for the SMB market just hauled in $50m simoleans from private equity firm Zourk Capital, based in London for all of you start-ups looking to knock on doors…
How does Workable – an SMB Recruitment Platform / ATS – get someone to invest $50m? Note: Total investment is close to 90m…
Six years in business, 20,000 customers and 50 million candidates for starters and…
Workable’s blog states “There are several million SMBs in the world, and they do 70% of all hiring worldwide.” That’s a damned good start to a pitch…
Oh you want more?
How about Workable’s candidate REACH which has expanded to a network of more than 180 job sites, plus partnerships with LinkedIn and Indeed, and job syndication with Google and Facebook doesn’t hurt a bit.
But Chad we want AI and Machine Learning – well guess what.
Workable (like most of us) believes machines are better than humans at sourcing, as evidence from their blog – You’ll like using Workable “Unless you really think that a junior recruiter spending as little as six seconds per resume will not be outdone by a computer who has observed millions of human decisions and hiring outcomes.” That’s Workable sarcasm folks.
and I agree machines are better, but I’m not in the “observing dumb biased humans” camp with Workable. It sounds like a new wave biased Amazon algo centered on stupid human hiring tricks.
ANYWAY… What about competition like ZipRecruiter. SMB-focused and more than just your run-of-the-mill job board (cough) MONSTER (cough)… You know Zip has to have way more than 50 million candidate profiles and their reach is much larger, Better AI-matching, plus you know they are already in the lite ATS for SMB market already anyway. Or what about a little company called Google who launched Hire by Google and already has 3 million companies in G Suite?
I know, I know, there’s plenty of SMB’s to go around AND those Google, Zip and even Facebook’s play really just validates the Workable platform. – Well DUH they just received $50m…..
— BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE —

On demand STAFFING is HOTT!
Well apparently, it’s hot enough for Wonaloo, ONE-a-low OH HELL ONE-NO-LOW… to pull IN $32m of Venture from Bain Capital and DAG Ventures, which brings their total to nearly $53m via Crunchbase.
Why does a company with such a bad name deserve $32m additional dollars? Simple, the market has exploded with need for on-demand temp workers. Won-NO-Lo boasts no upfront cost and average time-to-fill in 4 minutes… I’m going to say that again – Average time to fill is — 4 FUCKING minutes…. That’s ridiculous and awesome at the same time.
It sounds like we are finally approaching the UBER for Temp Jobs app that Joel and I have been waiting for in the ONE-No-Lo app…
Wonolo caters to the unemployed, the underemployed, and “the ones looking for flexible work with jobs mainly in fulfillment, distribution, and logistics. Wonolo currently operates in eight main markets: Northern California, Southern California, New York, Chicago, Southern Florida, and Nashville.
In a VentureBeat article COO AJ Brustein declined to give revenue specifics, only to say that Wonolo’s revenue “well more than doubled” over the past year. The company was founded in 2014 and has 70 employees, including 12 sales people in its recently established “second headquarters” in Nashville.
But does Wonolo has a chance in competing with Uber’s infrastructure and workforce. Well, Lyft still seems to be kicking — so — yeah…
I just hope they have enough money to change their crappy name….
