This week John Sumser interviews Joe Essenfeld. Founder and CEO of JIBE, Joe has held several executive level positions in which he was responsible for hiring hundreds of employees.
Disruption happens quickly. Remember CD Stores? The world before bluetooth? In this week’s feature Imagining Disruption, John Sumser explores disruption in HR and Recruiting with a three part series (be sure to read Immodest Disruption and Modest Disruption). And Heather Bussing wraps up this week’s issue with her post When Employers Are Liable for Harassment.
The US Supremes issued their opinion in Vance v. Ball State University this morning holding that an employer is not liable for its employee’s racial or sexual harassment unless the harasser is a supervisor of the victim employee.
Dr. Todd Dewett examines the career arc and leadership in this week’s feature post. Guest author, Randy Emelo defines a new learning leader for HR, Heather Bussing talks weasels, and John Sumser calls attention to what’s missing from recruiting software and interviews Hank Stringer on HRExaminer Radio.
The weird thing about most companies that sell new recruiting tools is that they don’t really understand the value they are delivering. They’ve never been recruiters.
Most learning leaders got their start by assessing training needs, developing courses, and then facilitating those courses in the classroom. L&D professionals have refined these skills and made their niche in these areas, but is this a good thing?
People don’t know what it’s like to lead until they get there. Too often, however, professionals overestimate how well they know this new place, thus they engage the stages of promotion with surprise and elevated stress.
