On February 5, 2018, in Editorial Advisory Board, HRExaminer, Paul Hebert, by Paul Hebert

HRExaminer v9.05

On February 2, 2018, in Editorial Advisory Board, HR Technology, HRExaminer, Jason Lauritsen, Radio, Rob May, Weekly, by John Sumser
There are still a lot of misconceptions about both the technology and the human impact of deploying A.I. within companies. This week, we look at The Human Side of Implementing Artificial Intelligence.


Jason Lauritsen writes, “Work isn’t something we do, it’s who we are. You can’t get more personal than that. When it comes to our work, it is never ‘strictly business.’” Work is Personal, Act Accordingly.


John Sumser writes, “The fundamental question in Recruiting is not whether you have the best possible candidate, but when you should stop looking.” Recruiting Is Optimal Stopping.


HRIntelligencer 2.04 Highlights: The HR and Recruiting marketplace is awash in jargon about “AI.” This week’s articles are a breather. The tutorial section, with its bits about model robustness and expectation setting, are the gems.


On HR Tech Weekly there are many acquisitions to cover, including: SAP and CallidusCloud, MOVE Guides and Polaris, PeopleAdmin and Performance Matters, and PeopleStrong and GrownOut. Also, PageUp Launches PageUp Express, and HR Tech Conference owner LRP partners with Zukunft Personal.

Work is Personal, Act Accordingly

On January 31, 2018, in Editorial Advisory Board, HRExaminer, Jason Lauritsen, by Jason Lauritsen
When it comes to our work, it is never “strictly business.” I’m not sure where the idea started that work (or business) and personal lives are separate. It seems so disconnected from reality.” – Jason Lauritsen
