Good people are the essence of everything HR is about. Finding, keeping, growing, engaging, training, and recognizing people. We've got some of our own people we'd like to celebrate this week: Bob Corlett, Heather Bussing and Colin W. Kingsbury. Enjoy our Top 100 Influencer profile of Bob, Heather's advice about copyright on the Internet and […]
Next week, we’ll be launching HRxAnalysts at the Spring ERE. As things move in that general direction, various pieces are falling in place. For instance, here’s the company Manifesto: HRxAnalysts is the first company to treat the HR Industry as a mature marketplace teeming with brands and customers. Our job is to quantify the people who work in HR, their needs and ambitions. Simultaneously, we quantify the elements of the brands of the companies that serve those HR workers.
Great talent in the HR and Recruiting universe rarely arrives in a straight line fashion but Bob Corlett is one great example of where it has. None of the stories of the Top 100 to date involve a person who went to school to become a member of the HR Industry. Ironic. Despite being half the cost of everyone else in Executive search, or perhaps because of it, Bob’s firm recently earned the staffing industry’s only award for exceptional client service. Bob Corlett is unafraid of the old or new and firmly invested in getting it right.
It takes a lot of investment in time and energy to create something—not so much to steal it from someone else.

Copyright does not cover the ideas themselves. Where does this leave works on the Internet?
“I can’t help but think that the more unspoken rules one breaks, the closer one might get to an online recruiting experience that delivers real results for candidates.” – Colin W. Kingsbury
The latest chapter in the Dot Jobs saga is being written, and every single "we're right and they're wrong argument" resembles a sequel to Dumb and Dumber. Perhaps the guilty parties could take a page from the internet values that are shaping organization design and culture that Jay Cross champions this week in his article? […]
Jay Cross talks about how Internet values are driving organization design. “Google figures a superlative engineer creates 200 times as much value as his middle-tier peer. Back the superlative worker, the wild ideas and the weirdness of the new. Experiment continuously. As IBM’s Tom Watson said, “If you want to succeed, double your failure rate.””
“Hi Riley, this is Heather from the Law Firm. You were a second-level LinkedIn connection of one of our former attorneys who recently quit. I was wondering if you also enjoy deposing actuaries to determine whether life insurance premiums have a disparate impact on women who have never been pregnant?”
