On January 9, 2017, in HRExaminer, Jeff Dickey-Chasins, by Jeff Dickey-Chasins
“But we’re due – or overdue – for a new recession. The average length of a typical economic expansion cycle is 69.5 months. Guess what: we’re at month 89. The current expansion has been smaller and weaker than those in the past – which also makes it more vulnerable to outside shocks.” – Jeff Dickey-Chasins

Different Kinds of Difference

On December 26, 2016, in HRExaminer, Joe Gerstandt, by Joe Gerstandt
Diversity means difference. Rather than continuing to copy and paste hollow and lazy phrases such as “we celebrate and embrace the rich diversity…,” we can consider that difference shows up in a lot of different ways and we need to understand what kinds of difference have value to us and why.

We introduce Tom Janz as a member of our Editorial Advisory Board with his article, John, You Ignorant #$X!&. Tom is a leading thinker in I/O psychology and predictive analytics. Tom takes John Sumser to task for the opinions John laid out in “Predictive What?” a couple of weeks ago.

Read, John, You Ignorant #$X!&.

John, You Ignorant #$X!&

On December 12, 2016, in HRExaminer, Tom Janz, by Tom Janz
“John: I’m right there with you when it comes to lamenting low levels of prediction power being brought to bear on hiring the best people from among those who want the job. But let’s get clear about the difference between what we know and what we do. We know a lot more about how to predict performance value than your column asserts with a whine, but little evidence.” Tom Janz
