Put together an online version of our BOSS Training (Compensation Module) for a client a few months back, and while our training on the topic is great, there’s no question a fully functioning manager or people has to be really knowledgeable on the comp front to successfully answer all tough questions they’re going to face.

I remembered watching Anchorman and realizing that Ron Burgundy was not only a sexy beast, but a maverick and trailblazer beyond all measure. He masterminded a polished, poised persona and he didn’t need to bother with such silliness as “wearing pants” to pull it off. He was a true hero of the 1970s and his […]
As the economy recovers, talent acquisition teams need effective, efficient tools to face the expected hiring surge. AI is a must.
As we continue to see the walls of our homes more than the faces of our colleagues, it may sometimes feel that the human-ness of work has been extrapolated from our lives, however, humans are still the core of an organization.

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 […]
