In all professions, not only talent management, at times we feel our jobs are thankless. Some, unfortunately, feel they are thankless all of the time. I’ve heard both HR Pros, Recruiters and other think they are on a merry-go-round that never stops. When it finally does, the riders have a laundry list of woes, grievances, […]
I believe in the importance of having a plan. Ben Martinez believes this too, as he spelled out so succinctly in The Only Bad Plan Is No Plan here on FOT. As he put it, “My job is to create a plan to better deal with chaos,” a lesson he’s learned while coping with all […]

2020 is winding down and at the start of this year, none of us except Bill Gates had COVID-19 listed as an external force to deal with. This time last year if someone mentioned Corona to me, I would have immediately thought of the beer, Mexico and some chips and salsa. Fact: You, me, the […]
If 2020 has taught us anything at all, it’s that we live in a very unpredictable world, and surprises await us at nearly every turn. How good is someone at what they do, and more importantly, how well will they do it once they join our organization? Can we hire people who have never done […]
Over the past months, people with seemingly nothing in common bonded together in grassroots efforts across the country over an out-of-control pandemic that is perpetually “rounding the turn”. One thing’s for sure: This has united the masses in ways not seen since the civil-rights movement and there is no turning back. I am the head […]
I have a clear memory of being on a work retreat with my company’s executive team. Though I was new to the role of Head of HR, I was amongst peers. After a working lunch, as folks prepared for the next activity, it became instantly apparent that I was expected to be doing the tidying […]
I’m almost getting the hang of it. The “it” referred to here is the podcasting game, something I played kick-the-can with for almost eight years before finally making a commitment in 2020 (shout out to Pat Flynn). So while this year has been 10 months of a crotch-kick when looked at from a macro-level, there […]
HeadHunter, the leading Russia-based job vertical, recently implemented new technology to prevent bot attacks. Another classified, Rabota.ru, launched a Glassdoor-inspired employer review.

My cat jumped on my head to wake me up. I drank my 1.7 cups of Community Coffee (Mardi Gras Blend with sugar-free peppermint mocha creamer). I watched my girl […]
Covid has brought about a heightened level of loneliness for many of us. While I have not stooped to talking to “Wilson:, the volleyball in the movie Castaway, I do spend 8-10 hour stretches many days by my lonesome. My dog Max is often my only companion and he is usually sleeping! My spouse is […]
The employment landscape is always changing. Every year brings new challenges and questions to recruiting and new answers to those challenges. 2020 has been a unique year.As the nation finds its footing in the wake of Coronavirus, many organizations struggle to reach a workforce that spends most of their time at home.
I’m writing this on Monday, November 2nd. At this point I know one thing, an elderly white dude will be my President either today or someday in the near future. We encouraged our employees to vote. Many did, some didn’t, and still, the sun came up today. I like to think of HR like we […]
