Are You Really a Global Leader?

I was looking at some technology this past week and they were telling me they are a global technology provider! So, of course, I ask the question, “Oh, really, where do you have users?” A bit of silence and then some explaining, “Oh, well, of course here in the U.S., but we also have users in Canada and the UK.” So, not really that…

Do people really not want to work?

On my way to work this morning, I saw seven businesses that had “Help Wanted” signs out front. The sign above is from a fast-food restaurant requesting you be nice for the few staff they have that are working their butts off to get you fat! Please be patient, your fries, double cheeseburger, and shake will be with you shortly. I was on vacation…

Chill Out: It Really Doesn’t Matter Where Your Kids Go to College

I’ve got a junior in High School, and you know what that means – time for admission envy, parental handwringing and everything that goes with along with that. Sarah’s going to Vanderbilt/Harvard/Stanford. Man, I wish my kid would have worked harder… I get it – we all want more for our kids. To the extent they’ve worked hard, we want them to go to the…

Do We Really Want Salary in Every Job Posting?

When you try to optimize your openings for Google Jobs, you’ll turn to the Google Jobs schema for guidance. If you’ve already been working on this, you’ll find that most of the world has two remaining opportunities: –Address information for individual openings, and –Salary Information about the job. Optimizing location/address information for Google Jobs is a transaction/project. You either have an ATS that can accurately…

Does a $15/hr Minimum Wage Really Help Workers?

There might not be a more controversial topic in 2021! Whether or not we (the United States of America) should raise the minimum wage for all workers, in all states, in all jobs to $15/hr. I would love to say this is ‘simply’ a political issue, but it’s not. It’s much more complicated than politics. Both sides will point to studies that prove why…

What Do HR Professionals Really Think About Machines Replacing People (and how are they evaluating new HR Technologies)

Read Time58 Second It’s getting harder to distinguish existing HR Tech tools (assessments, for example) with their intelligent or AI offspring. The newly energized tools work smarter, faster, and cheaper, but perform the same function.

The Lies We Tell: Are You Really Open to Reasonable Accommodations?

Did you know only 19.3% of persons with a disability were employed in 2019? These sobering numbers are courtesy of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. What does that number tell us? That there is a great deal of talent available to fill your openings! We all know untapped resources for talent exist, including individuals with minor challenges and disabilities.

Psst, Do You Really Know How to Ask a Great Question?

Read Time58 Second “Instead of learning what to remember, we need to learn how to think. We need to learn how to ask really good questions, then how to evaluate the results we get for relevance, credibility, and importance.” – Heather Bussing Lawyers use leading questions to get people to say things they would avoid saying if given the chance: Isn’t it true that…

Creating friendships at work during a pandemic is really hard!

We’ve been told for years now, based on the Gallup research, that having a best friend at work is one of those anchors that will lengthen a person’s tenure with an organization. New research is proving this might not be as easy it sounds! Business Insider: A Study by Plos One asked students to rate their friendships and also rate whether or not the ‘friend’…

What can we really hope for out of a work experience?

I heard this quote recently, it was used by an old football coach to his players: “It’s hard, but it’s fair.” He wasn’t the first to use this and probably won’t be the last – but the line stuck with me because of how I don’t think many people in today’s age really think this way.  Many want to talk about what’s fair, few…

It’s Really Hard to Judge People!

I was out walking with my wife recently (that’s what middle-aged suburban people do, we walk, it makes us feel like we are less lazy and it gets us away from the kids so we can talk grown-up) and she made this statement in a perfectly innocent way: “It’s really hard to judge people.” She said this to ‘me’!  I start laughing.  She realized…
