Recruiting Idea! This Might Actually Work!

Why don’t potential candidates pick up your phone calls? Well, yes, no one picks up phone calls anymore, but, no, people still pick up phone calls for certain reasons. We don’t pick up phone calls when we don’t know who it is or we don’t want to talk to the person who’s calling. Why do we pick up phone calls?  We actually like the…

Your ATS Might Be Lagging Behind; Here is Why?

Read Time18 Second We all agree that the applicant tracking system (ATS) has been a popular tool in the HR industry and is used by approx. 90% of organizations globally.

Why Don’t We Make HR Simple? (hint: we might possibly have deep psychological issues!)

Have you ever wondered why HR Departments continue to make complex processes?  In reality, all of us want things simple.  But, when you look at our organizations they are filled with complexity.  It seems like the more we try to make things simple, the more complex they get.  You know what?  It’s you – it’s not everyone else.  You are making things complex, and…

Based on Historical Inputs (you might want to consider your options)

It should be marked ‘based on historical inputs.’ – John Sumser   Machine-Made Speculation   The biggest problems with HR analytics, and intelligent software like Machine Learning boils down to one thing. The…

Media Fasting Might Be a Good Idea Right Now

It’s getting harder and harder to get any kind of useful information from the “professionals” responsible for informing the public about things that matter. As a matter of fact, I would go so far as to say you have a 0% chance of getting a true re-counting of any current event that doesn’t also carry a hidden agenda or political bias. ZERO.   Stop right now if you are about to answer “no, that’s…

You Might Need to Wake Up From Your Dream

Times are strange.  The other day, the CHRO of a former F500 employer reached out to get the password for an 9 year-old Twitter account. Somehow, I remembered my password and got them what they needed. No thank you from them. I guess they had a dream they should have done something with that Twitter account and got what they needed to pursue their…

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…

“Self-Insight” Might Be the Most Undervalued Personal Core Competency!

I was having a conversation recently with a peer. We were discussing a company with a dynamic leader. The company seemed like it had every single attribute to make it successful. Smart and dynamic leader, great product, great design, female, minority, but they were having a hard raising capital. My first reaction was, something isn’t right! Why can’t this company raise capital? I mean VC…

Your Workforce Tools Are More Strategic Than You Might Think

This is not a typical article about attracting talented job candidates or retention — while a rich topic, it has become a little tired. There are volumes of research on employee retention – some focus on affirmative strategies; others on mistakes and pitfalls of the world’s most revered companies. And what is clear is that turnover has a cost. In fact, SHRM estimates that…
