On February 3, 2011, in HRExaminer, The Go/The-Know, by John Sumser
Following up on last week’s edition of In The Know, we have another ‘fistful’ of notable movements in the management universe. As the economy regains its footing, expect to hear a lot more about techniques that rearrange management approaches. There will be a heavy emphasis on startups and a deep desire to eliminate meetings and endless planning sessions.

Build a better, more self-aware HR industry

On February 2, 2011, in HRExaminer, by John Sumser
Have you ever wondered about the disconnect between what you need and what HR Technology companies provide? This year, HRXAnalysts is launching the first ever comprehensive survey of the demographics, psychographics and brand preferences of the HR Industry. We want to understand, and help the industry understand, the realities of the jobs, decisions and opportunities in the business of HR. We believe there’s a major story to be told about what really happens, who really does it and what role technology plays. We’re start by building a really big team of people who help us see and understand the realities of life in HR.

Eliminate the Black Hole – Improving Your Corporate Career Site

On February 1, 2011, in Colin Kingsbury, HRExaminer, by Colin Kingsbury
“I’ve been thinking a lot lately about corporate career websites–and specifically, how to make them truly inspiring and captivating to jobseekers. Even the best sites — the ones filled with pages of lush multimedia content, built with luxuriant budgets and dedicated staff- place only a superficial gloss on the problem. All it takes is one or two clicks for a jobseeker to transport herself from that world of fantasy and into the bowels of the company’s ATS, where impersonal job descriptions and bureaucratic application processes dishearten even the most enthusiastic applicant.”

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?”

In The Know v 2.04 Hodgepodge

On January 27, 2011, in HRExaminer, The Go/The-Know, by John Sumser
This week’s five links are a collection of cats, dogs and a chicken. We’re working in a time of extreme social change. It’s really hard to tell the difference between noise and information. Even honesty and integrity are hard to fathom. In this sort of climate, people search desperately for a box to fit into.

HumanConcepts 2

On January 26, 2011, in HRExaminer, Reviews, by John Sumser
One of the strengths of the HumanConcepts approach is that it doesn’t focus on the repetition of best practices. Rather, it offers a relatively blank slate from which you can ask and answer questions that actually matter to your organization. Instead of offering abstract wisdom to a closeted group of workforce planners, the tool works best when there are real problems to be solved rooted in the organization’s actual performance data.

HumanConcepts 1

On January 25, 2011, in HRExaminer, Reviews, by John Sumser
When you look out at the market for workforce planning tools, HR Analytics and other leading edge offerings, what you see is an emphasis on sameness. HumanConcepts, a Sausalito, CA based operation (On the same floor as GlassDoor), takes a different approach. Rather than predefined question sets, the HumanConcepts system makes the core data visible so that intelligent hypotheses can be made after the data is in the system. It’s the difference between standardization and ad hoc query development and it works.
