Personal Questions: Women & Work

On March 11, 2013, in Fitures, Heather Bussing, HRExaminer, by Heather Bussing

The idea that great people should be retained in their jobs for a long time is the exact opposite of growth and innovation.

It’s really hard to get your arms around the implications of global ubiquitous DNA testing. It’s coming fast. And it won’t stay private for long. If I can find my relatives using genetic information, then the reverse is true. It won’t take long until employers will be able to make a pretty good guess. Read our feature post Genetic Testing.

The Value of Wrong

On February 18, 2013, in Heather Bussing, HRExaminer, by Heather Bussing
