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…

The Single Most Desired Trait Employers Want: Being an Adult!

Don’t buy into the hype! “Oh, just do what you love!” That’s not being an adult, that’s being a moron! Just do what makes you happy! No, that’s what a child does. “Tim, we just want to hire some ‘adults’!” I hear this statement from a lot of CEOs I talk with currently! That means most of the people they are hiring, aren’t considered…

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.

How to get promoted to the job you want in 2021!

I read an article recently where a “former” Google HR executive shared his wisdom. (editor side note – are all Google HR executives “Former”? Have you ever heard from a “current” Google HR executive? Why does Google have a hard time keeping HR execs?) The dude’s name is Justin Angsuwat and he’s the current VP of People at Thumbtack, which not ironically does not…

3 out of 4 Employees Actually Want to Return to the Office!

I think most HR pros disagree with this number. I didn’t make it up like I do most of the time, but I was having this feeling that way to many HR leaders and pros were feeling that their entire office workforce just wanted to remain remote. The number is from this recent Human Experience study. Basically, it’s saying 25% of workers want to…

Insights on Innovation: Do You Want To Build a Snowman?

Read Time19 Second If there’s one major lesson business leaders can learn from this year, it’s that adaptability is an essential skill any organization needs in order to survive challenging and changeable times. However, in order to thrive rather than just survive, companies must go beyond simply adapting to change as it happens and instead focus on innovating to stay ahead of the curve….

It’s 2020 and I’m Re-certifying with @SHRM. Want to know why?

In 2001 I got my SPHR certification for the first time. I started my first real HR Manager job and the CHRO wanted to make sure every single HR person on our team had either a PHR or SPHR. I did an eight-week group study course with fellow HR pros studying for the test and I was lucky that my company had also purchased…

Men, If You Want To Be A Workplace Ally, Load The Damn Dishwasher

I have a clear memory of being on a work retreat with my company’s executive team. Though I was new to the role of Head of HR, I was amongst peers. After a working lunch, as folks prepared for the next activity, it became instantly apparent that I was expected to be doing the tidying up. Nothing in my job title stated, “clean up…

Read Time25 Second We’ve learned a lot of lessons this year. As I’ve been discussing in The Big Reset (detailed research here and here), this year is not just a year of Pandemic, it’s a year for global culture change.

Want to Improve Retail Hiring? 8 Things to Think About

Read Time1 Minute, 0 Second As one speaker said yesterday at the HR Technology Conference, “high-volume hiring is not for the faint of heart.” Indeed, as we come up on one of the most important times of year for retailers, the holiday season, a challenge emerges: how do we hire quality employees for the rush? Retailers will inevitably need to hire a seasonal workforce…

Hiring Managers Don’t Want More Candidates!

There is a giant mistake most organizations make in marketing. Bad marketers perpetuate this notion that buyers want choice. “What we need is more choices for buyers! If we just had more choices our sales would be higher!” In fact, more choices increase buyer confusion and actually stalls buying decisions for most people. “We” (the collective lot of us) have been programmed to believe…
