“Outie” or “innie”? That’s the gist of what we asked our Editorial Advisory Board members about outsourcing HR. Which departments stay and go? Are there any functions that should never be outsourced? John Sumser breaks down the poll data from our HRExam outsourcing poll and summarizes their response in good old chart and bullet fashion. Where do you stand? Outie or innie?
So you outsource a major function of HR. What next? Is there anyone with deep capability in your HR organization explicitly trained to manage outside resources? Program management (not to be confused with project management) is a business competency born from the ruins of failed outsourcing efforts and one still unknown in many HR Departments. For HR outsourcing to work, HRPMO might be the new Golden Ticket.
Our Editorial Advisory Board (EAB) is an elite group of senior players in our industry. Each member is an expert in a very precise niche. At the same time, the fundamental qualification for membership is breadth beyond expertise. We actively recruit seasoned leaders who have a definite point of view. Every couple of months, we create a virtual brainstorming session, the HRExam Poll. Each member is asked to respond succinctly to a topical question. The answers paint a picture of the state of the industry.

Following up on last week’s edition of In The Know, we have another ‘fistful’ of notable movements in the management universe.

Have you ever wondered about the disconnect between what you need and what HR Technology companies provide? This year, HRXAnalysts is launching the first ever comprehensive survey of the demographics, psychographics and brand preferences of the HR Industry.

We believe there’s a major story to be told about what really happens, who really does it and what role technology plays.

“I’ve been thinking a lot lately about corporate career websites–and specifically, how to make them truly inspiring and captivating to jobseekers. Even the best sites — the ones filled with pages of lush multimedia content, built with luxuriant budgets and dedicated staff- place only a superficial gloss on the problem. All it takes is one or two clicks for a jobseeker to transport herself from that world of fantasy and into the bowels of the company’s ATS, where impersonal job descriptions and bureaucratic application processes dishearten even the most enthusiastic applicant.”
“You can complain about obstreperous Millennials all you want, but this is not just a generational trait. I actually think it is more a difference in communication styles. Top performers are always going to be restless and wanting more. Those actually seem like good qualities to me. Why wouldn’t you want ambitious employees who are hungry for more?”
