  • 5 Ways to Manage Requests For Leaves

  • HR’s Role In Technology Disruption
    Posted by Amy Dobler and John Schneider on 24 maggio 2016 at 09:08

    It’s a modern business reality that if you’re not the disruptor, you’re at risk to be disrupted.

The good news is that HR (or employee experience) departments have a role to... […]

  • 6 Mistakes Managers Make That Drive Their Employees Crazy
    Posted by Dianna Booher on 24 maggio 2016 at 08:14

    If you haven’t worked for these managers, you’ve heard about them. Employees buzz about these bosses over lunch, complain about them around the water cooler, and chew them up at the dinner table with their spouse. And if these leaders don’t get some feedback or training from their superiors, they’ll soon cost their... […]

  • 5 Things You Do that Drive Your Boss Crazy
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 25 maggio 2016 at 14:22

    You’re ambitious and smart, and you have plans. You know your job well, and you work hard, so why does your boss hate you? Well, maybe not hate you, but it’s clear that she likes your coworker a lot more than she likes you, even though you’re clearly the better employee. Sometimes that’s just a personality […]

  • Is a Bring Your Own Device Policy a Good Cost Saver or a Legal Nightmare?
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 19 maggio 2016 at 12:12

    Just about everyone has a smartphone, and no one wants to give it up. Adding a second work smartphone seems a bit silly. Heck, even Hillary Clinton didn’t want to carry two phones around. So, why not have a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy? It saves you money, you don’t have to buy the […]

  • What’s the Most Inappropriate Thing an Employee Has Told You?
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 17 maggio 2016 at 11:10

    “You know, Suzanne, I’ve never really liked sex.” This statement came in the midst of a waterfall of information about her history. I was driving, so I just kept looking at the road and didn’t say a thing. How does one respond to that? I mean, if you’re a therapist or a doctor there’s a […]

  • Why Smart People Are Stupid
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 16 maggio 2016 at 11:06

    A few years ago, I attended a “coffee morning with the principal” at my daughter’s school. During the discussion, homework came up.

  •   Why You Should Never Accept a Low-Ball Salary Offer
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 13 maggio 2016 at 11:50

    No one starts to look for a new job simply because there’s a full moon or Netflix removed your favorite show.

All these things can mean that […]

  • Watch Your Back: How to Fire Someone Without Getting Sued
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 12 maggio 2016 at 11:36

    Firing is not fun. Most managers go to great lengths to avoid firing someone, and when it finally comes down to it, you have to let this person go. After all that stress, the last thing you want is to land in court. You know that the firing was legal, but that doesn’t mean a […]

    Posted by Andrew McIlvaine on 19 maggio 2016 at 16:05

    The upshot of today’s U.S. Supreme Court unanimous ruling in favor of a trucking company in CRST Van Expedited Inc. v.
