Mad Men HR: What Can Don Draper Teach Us About Talent?

On January 31, 2011, in Editorial Advisory Board, HRExaminer, Steve Smith, by Steve Smith
“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?”

The Output’s Connected to the Outcome

On January 14, 2011, in Editorial Advisory Board, HRExaminer, Neil McCormick, by Neil McCormick
Many argue that the reason HR struggles to find value in an organization is the real or perceived difference between company goals and potentially disconnected HR efforts like talent management. Wouldn’t it be useful then to get advice from someone who has been both a successful CEO and knows HR inside and out? That’s where Neil McCormick comes in. This week the former CEO and General Manager turned HR Consultant gives us practical advice on where HR gets the relationship between outputs and outcomes wrong, and where to fix it. This is analysis that gets right to the heart of HR effectiveness. It’s this week’s HRExaminer feature – The Output’s Connected to the Outcome.

It’s an important emerging HR topic that you’ll want to get ahead of. Lawyer and HRExaminer Editorial Advisory Board contributor Heather Bussing gives us the lowdown.

“Recently, I called for the abolition of corporate training departments. Now some instructors and traditional instructional designers see me as a job threat. They needn’t worry. Enlightened e-learning requires more people, not fewer.”
