Boese: 4 questions for business agility

In my last column, I set out to articulate what the team at H3 HR Advisors was considering the primary challenges facing HR and business leaders as they continue to deal with the coronavirus impact today and to plan for a still-uncertain tomorrow. One month later, while perhaps a few elements of the complex array of moving parts impacting work and business have become…

Boese: The biggest post-pandemic HR challenges

I’m not sure if it is too early yet to be thinking of the post-pandemic world, the so-called “new normal” or whatever phrase gets coined to describe the changed environment and workplaces that we, collectively, are going to concurrently inherit and create. The post Boese: The biggest post-pandemic HR challenges appeared first on HR Tech Feed.

Steve Boese: A look at what HR leaders think about HR technology

One of the resources I like to consult as I plan for themes, topics and speakers for the annual HR Technology Conference is Human Resource Executive®‘s annual “What Keeps HR Up at Night?” survey. The research sheds light on what HR leaders are thinking about, how they are spending their time, and importantly, what subjects, functions, processes and programs are proving challenging to them…

Steve Boese Talks About the Five Kinds of Office Environments

Caught the news this morning that Apple begun moving employees into its new, futuristic, spaceship-looking, and $5 Billion costing campus in Callifornia last week. The space (or space ship) seems to be by all accounts incredible, (and I suppose for $5B it had better be), and reading the article over and looking at some of the pics of the new Apple campus got me…

Steve Boese Reminds Us Innovation is About People, Not Projects

In between games of the NBA playoffs this weekend and as I was digging through a couple of weeks of ‘saved’ items in my Feed reader, (anyone still using feed readers?), I came across a link to a Quora thread aiming to address the question ‘What made Xerox PARC, (the legendary reseearch shop in Palo Alto), so special?’ One of the responses, from Alan…

Steve Boese Advises It’s Better To Have a Job When You’re Looking For a Job

As the 2007-2008 financial crisis and subsequent economic recession fade further and further into the distance, we don’t in 2017 talk about unemployment all that much. The sustained recovery in the labor market has pushed unemployment to near “full employment” levels of about 4.5% in the US, and in many sectors and job roles most employers would report ‘good help is hard to find’….

8 Man Rotation – 2015 Season

As an HR/Talent pro I am on record as stating that you can learn just about everything you need to know about leadership, management, performance, assessment, teamwork, engagement, culture, succession planning, the workplace and ultimately winning from watching sports. In fact, not only do I believe that to be true, my 8 Man Rotation pals Kris Dunn, Tim Sackett, Lance Haun, Matt Stollak and I spend lots of time,…

Notes From The Road #20 – Spring Event Roundup Edition

A big part of how I spend my Spring each year is making the rounds of as many HR technology solution provider events (customer conferences and.or analyst meetings), as I can, all while planning for and developing the program for the 19th Annual HR Technology Conference and Expoto be held October 4 – 7, 2016 in Chicago, IL. These customer events are a great…

Five Ways to Succeed with HR Technology

Here is my semi-frequent reminder and pointer for blog readers that I also write a monthly column at Human Resource Executive Online called Inside HR Tech and that archives of which can be found here. As usual, the Inside HR Tech column is about, well, HR Tech, (sort of like I used to write about all the time on this blog), and it was inspired by the…

Steve Boese shares CHART OF THE DAY: Trends in Labor Force Participation

It’s been ages since I broke off a CHART OF THE DAY post and even longer since I talked about the Labor Force Participation Rate, so let’s remedy both of these situations in one shot. Courtesy of your pals at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, have a look at a recently published chart on participation, this one broken down by gender. As always,…
