Working Without a Net

On September 12, 2013, in HRExaminer, by John Sumser
The question plaguing a world much bigger than our little industry is “How do I get heard over the swell of mediocrity?” We do a good job on that one.
 

Engagement and Passion

On September 11, 2013, in Analytics, Big Data, HRExaminer, by John Sumser
In other words, the two hippest ideas in the current HR play book (engagement and finding the work you love) are more than a little tenuous. The worst job in a fast growing company can be astonishing because of the freedom and authority that emerge there.
 

Year-Round Benefits Engagement

On September 10, 2013, in Editorial Advisory Board, Harry Gottlieb, HRExaminer, by Harry Gottlieb
Trying to cram 365 days’ worth of benefits information into the narrow windows of new hire orientation and open/annual enrollment—simply doesn’t work. Disability insurance is an extremely meaningful benefit when you actually need it. It’s worthy of three or four concentrated minutes of an employee’s time to learn about it.
 

Gender Equity – WTF HBS‽

On September 9, 2013, in Discrimination, Heather Bussing, HRExaminer, Leadership, by Heather Bussing

On September 6, 2013, in Editorial Advisory Board, HRExaminer, Paul Hebert, Radio, Weekly, by John Sumser

Bob Lefsetz ships his regular email to a large audience. The subject, generally, is the state of the music business.  As important is the state of Lefsetz.
 

Working For Rich

This is the best job ad and application process all rolled into one I’ve ever seen. It was so good I even applied for the job.
 

Buying My Friends Back

On September 4, 2013, in HRExaminer, by John Sumser
Every single thought, word, image, like, sharer, comment, posting or connection you make in social media is the entertainment that the big Social Media sell advertising on. It’s your life and the platform rakes in revenues based on the entertainment value of your life.
