    Posted by David Creelman on 26 agosto 2016 at 09:59

    Many professionals don’t have a good handle on what their skills are really worth in the marketplace nor who would likely hire them. As a result, when they are next looking for a job, they tend to take the first warm offer that comes along. Lax Chandra, the founder of Step.com, would like... […]

  • Facebook Shows Us How to Do Recognition the Right Way
    Posted by Cord Himelstein on 26 agosto 2016 at 09:25

    Even though his organization is all about connecting people virtually, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently did a stellar job connecting in person when he inadvertently delivered a clinic on workplace presentations for an employee’s ten-year anniversary. The KX Factor Employee Kang-Xing Jin, known as “KX” to his colleagues, was a dear... […]

  • How To Build A Strategically Valuable Talent Pipeline
    Posted by Dave Mendoza on 26 agosto 2016 at 08:22

    When we hire, we are bent on finding talent with performance that soars, an attitude of learning and an interest in the long haul. All those variables are difficult to identify or even encounter in the roller coaster world of talent acquisition, especially when finding an amazing candidate doesn’t mean you’ve hired an... […]

  • Your Performance Reviews Are Biased Against Women
    Posted by Steffen Maier on 25 agosto 2016 at 09:13

    Language in performance reviews often conforms to gender stereotypes that result in women and men being put on different career paths, with men being favored for leadership positions. Despite many CEOs’ intentions to prioritize gender equality, McKinsey & Co.’s 2015 Women in the Workplace study revealed only one-third of employees surveyed believe gender diversity is... […]

  • Can You Enforce the Confidentiality of Employee Settlements?
    Posted by Eric B. Meyer on 25 agosto 2016 at 08:49

    A reader emailed me yesterday. “Hey Eric, Clients are wondering about value of settlement NDAs after ex-Fox News HWE victims go public despite contracts. Your reaction?” Wait! You mean employees actually violate confidentiality provisions? I know, right? By way of brief background, in late July, New York ran a story by Gabriel Sherman, suggesting a... […]

    Posted by Diana Kander on 25 agosto 2016 at 08:39

    We all wish we could have an employee like Greg Greiner. A recent hire at Uber for Business, he came up with an idea that would benefit the company — a way for organizations to buy Uber credits for anyone attending one of their events. Prior to Greg’s idea, Uber employees were manually... […]

  • Monster Calls Opposition to Company Sale “Reckless”
    Posted by John Zappe on 24 agosto 2016 at 23:29

    When Monster’s largest shareholder last week tore into the planned sale of the company calling the price “selling at the bottom,” the response was an official “no comment.” Today, Monster fired back. In an open letter to shareholders, Tim Yates, Monster’s CEO and CFO and a company director, called last week’s detailed challenge... […]

  • Without Consequences Managers Send the Wrong Message
    Posted by Carol Anderson on 24 agosto 2016 at 10:11

    Ryan Lochte certainly did realize severe consequences to his childish actions in Rio. They hit him where it really hurts – in the pocketbook. One hopes that Lochte learns from this experience, grows up and becomes a responsible adult.  Maybe. If, however, what happened to Lochte serves to influence other young athletes to... […]

  • The Benefits of Using Retained Search Firms In Emerging Markets
    Posted by Sonal Agrawal, Nicolás Mora Schrader, Maria Isabel Ventura and Julia Scheffer on 24 agosto 2016 at 08:41

    As the world becomes ever-smaller and more connected due to the rapidly changing business landscape, clients need creative, adaptable and decisive executives that can lead fast changing and dynamic organizations. Companies are becoming very creative and aggressive in their retention strategies, particularly when top talent is limited and companies know that it is... […]

  • It’s Swiss Sunday! Permission Slips
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 28 agosto 2016 at 11:23

    I haven’t done a Swiss cultural post for a while, so I thought I’d do one for fun. Today, my 3rd grader is at the local swimming pool with his class. (I’m writing this on Friday, even though I’m publishing it on Sunday.) A normal thing to do, but it will probably make your American […]

  • Exempt Employees with Same Titles and Different Rules
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 26 agosto 2016 at 11:21

    Hello, I am a salaried employee at a hospital. Despite the fact that there is no official start time for us (3 total), 2 full-time, 1 part-time, the full-time employees work 4 days and the part-time works 3. I am being told that I am late at least once a week. Respectfully, office operating hours […]

  • Making Job Candidates Compete Works for Reality TV, but Not for Reality
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 25 agosto 2016 at 11:38

    So, I used to watch reality tv. (Don’t anymore, in fact, I don’t even own a television anymore.) I watched several seasons of the Apprentice and was equally horrified and fascinated. But, while a competition makes for great television, it’s not the right way to hire. A reader asked me a question about a job […]

  • Posting Absences
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 24 agosto 2016 at 11:00

    I’m hoping you can help me with something. I’ve been in HR for a long time but have never come across a situation like our owners are currently doing. They have two calendars out in the open (one for office staff and one for our laborers). Anyone from vendors, customers, etc. can see it. They […]

  • How to Manage Those Women Folks
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 23 agosto 2016 at 11:27

    So, Jason Shen, a BigWig at Etsy, wrote this article about managing women. Now, to be fair, “he means well, but he don’t know.”* In his attempt to point out that we shouldn’t discriminate against women, he pretty much invokes every negative stereotype out there. In response, I’ve penned some advice on how to manage […]

  • Want to Work From Home? Here Are Tips from 5 Top Companies
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 22 agosto 2016 at 11:19

    Have you ever wondered what giants like Intel and Google do about telecommuting? Yahoo killed telecommuting and now look at them–sad and sold. Not even the facts will convince me that the banning of telecommuting was 100 percent responsible for this. (Just joking, people! I’m sure it contributed to the problem, but it wasn’t the […]

  • You MUST Choose a STEM Major. Except, Wait These Leaders Didn’t.
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 18 agosto 2016 at 12:56

    If you are getting ready to go off to college, or you are sending a child off to college, you might be concerned about a major. Majors are important, of course. I mean, I majored in political science and look where it got me. I asked some small business owners what they majored in and […]

    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 16 agosto 2016 at 10:54

    Okay, this is not my normal topic, but I’m a heavy internet user and there are some things that drive me absolutely  nuts. Like popups that are too big for my phone screen so I can’t dismiss them and can never get to the website. Seriously, web designers? Who thinks this is a good idea? […]

    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 15 agosto 2016 at 14:00

    What would you do if you just graduated from college and got a great job doing HR at a startup? Cheer, right? What if the company size doubled, and they fired the HR consultant and now it’s you? Alone. With 100 employees, and continuing to grow rapidly? ReWork has started an advice column with me! […]

  • What the Internet Thinks of HR
    Posted by Jack Robinson on 26 agosto 2016 at 13:00

    Google’s autocomplete feature is the closest thing we have to a mind-reading machine. The search engine is so widely used, and so good at collecting data about what we look up on the web, that it can tell us what people think about nearly anything. Like, for example, HR. I discovered this one day while […]

  • Workers Open to Working Elsewhere
    Posted by Andrew McIlvaine on 25 agosto 2016 at 15:39

    As you walk through the cubicle farm/office maze/factory floor of your organization, know this: More than half the people you’re passing are open to finding a new job elsewhere, and of those employees, 44 percent are actively looking for new jobs. That’s according to Aon Hewitt’s latest Workforce Mindset study, which surveyed 2,000 employees. What are […]

  • NLRB: Grad Students Are Employees
    Posted by Mark McGraw on 24 agosto 2016 at 16:07

    In a 3-1 decision, the National Labor Relations Board has ruled that graduate students working as research and teaching assistants at Columbia University are statutory employees covered by the National Labor Relations Act. As the Washington Post reports, the ruling overturns a 2004 Brown University decision, in which the NLRB said graduate students engaging in […]

  • The Motherhood Tax at Work
    Posted by Michael J. O'Brien on 23 agosto 2016 at 16:34

    New research out of the United Kingdom shows the gender-pay gap widens significantly after the birth of a child, otherwise known as the “motherhood tax.” According to a new report from the Institute for Fiscal Studies, 12 years after giving birth for the first time, women are making 33 percent less per hour than men. On average, […]

  • Beware of the ‘Food Altar’ at Work
    Posted by Jack Robinson on 19 agosto 2016 at 13:00

    Anthropologists tell us that sharing food is nearly universal in human society. And that includes the office. Some workplaces have raised the custom to a high art. Think of Doughnut Day. Strawberries from the garden. Cookies from home. Leftovers from a lunch meeting. M&Ms in a bowl on the boss’s desk. These rituals humanize the […]
