  • Team Building and the Art of the Swing
    Posted by Jeff Nelson on 28 luglio 2016 at 09:55

    After Satya Nadella became CEO of Microsoft in 2014, he referenced the book, Boys in the Boat, a memoir about the Olympic quest by the 1936 University of Washington men’s rowing team, in a memo to the entire company. He said, There is a thing that sometimes happens in rowing that is hard... […]

  • Your Company’s Market Value Depends on Good Talent Management
    Posted by Michelle M. Smith on 28 luglio 2016 at 09:26

    Corporate value is increasingly dependent on employees, and talent optimization is becoming a serious business issue. The Brookings Institution has reported that as much as 85% of a company’s market value is now calculated with intangible assets such as knowledge, reputation and human talent. Just 25 years ago that figure was less than... […]

  • What Surfing Taught Me About Giving Feedback
    Posted by David Lee on 28 luglio 2016 at 08:36

    While surfing with a friend, I was reminded about the importance of both giving and receiving feedback, and each person’s role in making it work. Here’s what happened… I started surfing with a friend and neighbor who had taken up surfing the year before. I’ll call him Laird. I’ve been surfing for years.... […]

  • 7 Ways Pokemon Can Help You Motivate the Workforce
    Posted by Martha Duesterhoft on 27 luglio 2016 at 09:53

    The recent news is filled with outrageous stories about what is happening to the Pokemon Go players. I’ll admit, I’m not a gamer, but I’m baffled by the behavior of the players. It’s as if they shift into a hypnotic state once starting the game. A good phrase I heard was, “Zombie aPOKEalyspe!” It’s a... […]

  • This Is the Kind Of Office Politician You Want to Hire
    Posted by Brigette McInnis-Day on 27 luglio 2016 at 09:04

    During election season, it’s hard not to think about politics in the office. Often viewed as negative, and associated with being false or inauthentic; office politics doesn’t have to be a dirty word. In fact, those that are politically savvy will find they are more successful. It’s important to remember, however, that there... […]

  • Help Your Managers to Improve Engagement By Asking Questions
    Posted by Steffen Maier on 27 luglio 2016 at 08:24

    How much do you really know about your employees’ professional goals? With the fast pace of today’s business world, many managers opt for a simple “How are you doing/how’s the workload going” weekly, biweekly or even monthly check in. Even if you’ve cultivated an open door policy, encouraging employees to come to you... […]

  • Your Agency Temps Can Now Form A Bargaining Unit With Your Own Employees
    Posted by Michael Aldana, David Kern and Judith Williams-Killackey on 26 luglio 2016 at 09:42

    Over the last seven+ years, the National Labor Relations Board has consistently expanded collective bargaining rights in a variety of employment settings. Continuing that trend, the NLRB has now reversed over a decade of precedent and ruled that temporary employees supplied by one company (“supplier employer”) to another company (“user employer”) to perform...

  • I Think I’m A Clone Now
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 29 luglio 2016 at 13:31

    When you hire people, you want people who are just like you–right? Someone with whom you could be best friends? Lots of people hire this way, but it’s not the right way to hire. While culture is important, what’s more important is that you find people who aren’t like you–people who have different knowledge, skills, […]

  • Want Engaged Employees? Try Team Building
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 28 luglio 2016 at 20:23

    Having a cohesive team is critical to the success of your department–and your entire company. Why is this? And how can you do this? To answer these questions, I interviewed Strayboots CEO Ido Rabiner over at Cornerstone, Inc.’s ReWork blog. For my sharp-minded readers, I interviewed Ido once before, for a sponsored post on this […]

  • Have You Ever Received an Unfair Performance Rating?
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 27 luglio 2016 at 12:15

    One of my readers had her boss announce that everyone would receive low ratings because there wasn’t money for raises. This is not how this should work. Unfortunately, not every company HR and/or Finance department has half a clue. (Hint: You should hire someone with a clue. It’s worth the cash.) Over at Inc, I […]

  • Megyn Kelly’s Dress Was Inappropriate
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 26 luglio 2016 at 10:56

    I  keep seeing articles supporting Megan Kelly’s spaghetti strap dress. It’s cute, and it doesn’t indicate anything negative about her morality or ability as a reporter. However, what it does indicate is either a complete lack of awareness about social norms or a desire to push against those norms. The latter is okay (if that’s […]

  • Sheryl Sandberg Now Thinks It’s Okay to Cry at Work
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 25 luglio 2016 at 10:56

    After Sheryl Sandberg tragically lost her husband, she realized that she might not have been right about everything in Lean In. For instance, she acknowledges that the book assumes a supportive spouse, and now that she doesn’t have one, she can see that that makes a difference. However, she is also now saying that crying in […]

  • Nervous? Here’s How to Ask for a Raise Anyway
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 22 luglio 2016 at 11:14

    If you’re doing a fantastic job, or you’re doing a good job and your pay isn’t up to market rate, it’s time to ask for a raise. Some managers are on top of things like that, and you don’t need to really worry about it, but lots of managers aren’t. If you’re nervous about asking […]

  • You Can’t Be Mean, Even When You’re Beautiful
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 21 luglio 2016 at 11:17

    Former Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers probably thought everyone would agree with her when she snapped a photo of a normal woman showering at the gym. While she claims she only mean to share it with one friend, she shared it with the world. Now, I don’t believe it was as accidental as she claims, but […]

  • New Overtime Laws are Coming!
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 20 luglio 2016 at 11:29

    Today, over at Comstock’s Magazine I go into detail about how the new Department of Labor regulations are going to affect your business–since this is a California based magazine the focus is on California, but it affects the entire United States. If you are currently an exempt employee earning less than $47,476 a year, you’ll want […]

    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 19 luglio 2016 at 11:19

    Have you ever thought that benefits can contribute to your company culture? They do. Today, at Making Healthcare Reform Work, I talk about how choosing the right benefits can make a big difference in how your employees view your company. Defining Company Culture Through Your Benefits Offerings […]

  • The Democratic Party Platform: A Cheat Sheet
    Posted by Jack Robinson on 29 luglio 2016 at 13:00

    Turnabout is fair play — at least when it comes to politics in 2016. Last week I gave you a rundown on HR-related provisions in the Republican Party platform. Now it’s time for the Democrats. Reflecting the unusual character of this year’s race, the document — formally approved on Monday — contains many direct attacks […]

  • A Glimpse Inside a Strange Corporate Culture
    Posted by Andrew McIlvaine on 28 luglio 2016 at 13:53

    At Bridgewater Associates, the world’s largest hedge fund, employees are expected to familiarize themselves with “a little white book” written by the firm’s founder, Ray Dalio, that’s filled with more than 200 of his “principles” on life and business. Aside from the overtones of Chairman Mao and his little red book, a New York Times […]

  • Farewell to Performance Ratings at GE
    Posted by Mark McGraw on 27 luglio 2016 at 14:00

    While performance rating systems are still the norm at many organizations, it’s not really that surprising to hear that a company has abandoned the concept. But it’s a little more noteworthy when that company is General Electric, an organization that helped pioneer the practice. Yesterday, GE informed its workforce that 200,000 salaried employees will no […]

  • EEOC Steps Up Data Collection on Discrimination
    Posted by Michael J. O'Brien on 26 luglio 2016 at 18:10

    In case you missed this bit of news on your rush out the door to start your weekend last Friday: In an effort to improve the information available about religious discrimination, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission  announced it will implement changes in the collection of demographic data from individuals who file charges with the […]

  • Leadership-Development Woes Continue
    Posted by Kristen Frasch on 25 luglio 2016 at 13:00

    It seems there’s still a whole lot wrong with leadership development. The latest survey on the subject — from Harvard Business Publishing Corporate Learning — finds only 7 percent of organizations believe their leadership-development programs are best-in-class. And even among those best-in-class programs, the survey finds, 40 percent of respondents feel leadership development is only important […]
