“If friends are more important than money when it comes to happiness, and if we spend most of our time at work, isn’t it logical that we’ll be happier if we work harder to develop meaningful relationships at work than we do trying to screw everyone on our way to the corner office?” – Bret Starr

Many women are upset at being called “nurturing” at work. They want you to know that they can handle the union busting men of HR and are really most concerned about the financial bottom line. They are not nurturing. They are busy managing a business. They do not nurture people. The role of women in the workplace has changed a lot in the last 25 years. Women now have the opportunity to be complete assholes, just like men. But many choose not to.
 

HRExaminer v2.13

On April 1, 2011, in Editorial Advisory Board, HRExaminer, John Sumser, Kelly Cartwright, Weekly, by John Sumser
HR is Female While HR is widely understood to be a difficult place to sell and do business, it's worth considering that the problem lies with the sellers, not the buyers. The uniformity of the profession's angst about salespeople, marketing and vendor performance suggest that there's something really wrong with the way that vendors see […]

My “What’s taking so long?” Talent Management List

On March 30, 2011, in Editorial Advisory Board, HRExaminer, Kelly Cartwright, by Kelly Cartwright
We read about them every day, and we’ve been talking about them for years. I’m referring to those high-level concepts and ideals that seem to drive business and HR talk, if not action. Why are companies taking so long to “get around to it?”

Ideas Are Free But Content Isn’t – Copyright and the Internet

On March 15, 2011, in Editorial Advisory Board, Heather Bussing, HRExaminer, by Heather Bussing
It takes a lot of investment in time and energy to create something—not so much to steal it from someone else.
