Can Everyone be the Best Employer to Work For?

I have yet to see an organization come out with a brand that says, “Hey, we’re Super Average, but come work here anyway!”  For the most part, every organization spouts off about being the best place to work. Statistically, that just can’t be true. Everyone can’t be the best, right? I think for the most part it’s just lazy recruitment marketing. You are either…

Maybe, involving everyone, isn’t the answer!

There is an African Proverb that says: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”  It’s the paradox we face as leaders right now. We are forced to move fast because the world is moving fast. We are also forced to believe we must involve everyone. Yes, we want to go fast, and yes, we want…

The S-Storm Trifecta of 2020 (for HR and Everyone Else)

So here we all are, this is really happening. A pandemic response of historic significance, social unrest like we haven’t seen since the 1960’s, and it’s less than six months until we have an election that promises to provide an explosive outcome – no matter who is found to be the victor. That’s one huge matzah ball. If it wasn’t enough to manage yourself,…

Everyone Needs a Wingman or Wingwoman

Did you see the last dance on ESPN? Michael Jordan had Scotty Pippen as his wingman. Six Championships, way to go! In the movie Top Gun, Maverick had Goose. Miranda Priestly in the Devil Wears Prada had Nigel. And here on FOT, Kris has Tim – or is it the other way around? My conversation for today centers around the concept of a wingman….

Rainbow Flags for Everyone!

Pride is almost here! June is Pride month when all the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Trans folks (etc., etc.) pull out their rainbow flags and hope that their houses don’t get egged. Some of us live in neighborhoods where we don’t think twice before showing our pride (gayborhoods), while others can’t put out a flag for fear of retaliation. Luckily, many workplaces are showing…

Are You Inviting Everyone to Dance?

“Diversity and inclusion.” As often as we hear this term, you’d think the two words are synonymous or inseparable. They are neither. What’s more, when people lump them together, they usually end up focusing on the former. The problem is, it’s the latter — inclusion — that counts more.

Everyone Wants a Talent Brand That Candidates Love, But…

Everyone wants a talent brand that candidates will love, but almost no Talent Acquisition function is actually willing to love those same candidates back! You get this, right!? Do you know why you love certain brands? It’s usually a combination of an experience you had with that brand. You loved their product or service, how they/it made you feel, how you were treated, etc….

The Conference Swag Everyone Wants! #HRTechConf

I was on my way out to The HR Technology Conference this week listening to Laurie Ruettimann’s Let’s Fix Work podcast she did with William Tincup (Two close friends of mine that are smart and know the industry at another level). For a long time, Laurie would go to conferences and she has this weird fascination with conference swag. She would go collect stuff…

Confused by All the Software? So Is Everyone

If you strive to keep up to date with HR technology, you’ll continually run into new categories. For example, there are a whole host of vendors who offer tools to enable video interviewing hence “Video Interviewing Software” has become a category. That’s pretty clear and useful to know.

Everyone Has An Organizational Expiration Date

I was out at the HR Technology Conference last week and I was reminded of a post I ran a few years back. I ran into a ton of friends and colleagues, many that I’ve known for about ten years. These are good, smart people who are successful in the HR and TA industry. Regardless, many of these folks are working at new companies,…

Everyone has their own rules. These are mine. The Sackett Rules!

I’m heading back from South Africa today, so I’m re-posting a blog post I wrote six years ago. The day I wrote it I was at SHRM with Matt Stollak and Matt Charney, who gave me the motivation for this! It’s fun looking back on some old posts and reminding myself of some of these. I think we all have rules, our own set…
