Ashutosh Garg: AI Isn’t Magic, But It’s Needed

“AI and machine learning aren’t magic,” Eightfold CEO and Co-founder Ashutosh Garg told a Geneva-based conference last week. But, he said, they’re necessary now for … The post Ashutosh Garg: AI Isn’t Magic, But It’s Needed appeared first on HR Tech Feed.

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…

SHRM Isn’t Dead, But It’s in Need of Major Change

The earth-shattering events always expose the problems under the hood. It’s what you do when those problems are exposed that matters. COVID-19 and the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Elijah McClain, and Ahmaud Aubrey flipped the United States and the world on its head.  It’s a difficult time for HR professionals, many who have entered into this new world faster than they wanted….

Understanding Google Schema on Google for Jobs: What It Is and Why It Isn’t Working

Google for Jobs (GFJ) launched in 2017 aimed to seamlessly connect job seekers with companies with open roles. The goal was to create a platform that would aggregate job postings and job advertisements from job boards, ATSs, RMPs, and other career websites in one place to make Google for Jobs for employers and job seekers the best platform for their search. While the platform…

This isn’t about “Fit”, it’s about your Bias is showing!

“We’re big on CULTURE and fit!” We’re looking for the “right” person, not just skills!” “We just kind of know if they’ll fit or not…” Of course, it’s not The Project if we don’t have some sports analogies that I tie back to some HR topic! That’s how this puppy was founded, probably won’t change. So, you might have missed a great sports-HR topic…

Your One-Size-Fits-All EVP Strategy Isn’t Fitting Anyone.

I’m going to say something a little unpopular, especially among the big agencies who want to charge you 6 figures for a one-liner: I don’t think most companies benefit from having an employer value proposition, or EVP. Don’t @ me. Before you throw any virtual tomatoes, hear me out. When I say employer brand, what do you think of? When I’ve asked this question…

Leadership Isn’t Raised on Promises

I’ve had a lot of conversations with c-suite leaders recently who are concerned they do not have their next generation of leaders on their team. Let’s be clear, they have people on their team, but they do not believe those people are the future or at least they don’t believe they’re anywhere near becoming the future. The folks in position are all well-meaning enough….

Tech Isn’t Your Savior – It’s Your Accelerator

This past September, I wrote an article about recruiting “tech stack”: tools and technology that combine to help enable the recruiting function. The words “help enable” are two of the most important words in that statement, because technology is an accelerator, not a creator, of momentum. While I stand by the explanation of the term “tech stack,” my thought process was recently challenged when…

Best Places to Work Isn’t Real, but…

Any of the best places to work lists are basically just a marketing gimmick. We all know this, right? RIGHT!? (Let’s be clear, I’m not actually talking about the specific company ‘Best Places’, but the concept of awards that say you’re better than another employer, etc.) If you make the list, great, good for you, you have resources to jump through the hoops it…

You might decide, your job just isn’t worth it.

Linds Redding, a New Zealand-based art director who worked at BBDO and Saatchi & Saatchi, died at 52 from an inoperable esophageal cancer. Turns out Linds didn’t really like his old job and mad hours he spent creating a successful career. Here is what Linds wrote before he died: “I think you’re all f—— mad. Deranged. So disengaged from reality it’s not even funny. It’s…

The Grass Isn’t Always Greener…

This is HR’s go-to advice for employees who put in their two-week notice, especially if that employee is heading to a competitor: “Just remember! The grass isn’t always greener!”  HR is mostly right. I’d say here’s the actual breakdown of ‘greenest’: 50% is actually about the same shade of green. You’re moving to just move. You’ll find the job, the people, the money, everything…
