  • 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.

    Posted by Merrick Rosenberg on 23 agosto 2016 at 08:50

    Sometimes rock stars morph into toxic, difficult colleagues. Spurred by some unmet need, the strengths of their personality intensify until they become weaknesses. Whether you’re in management or HR, you can’t wait for problematic team members to about-face on their own. When you do nothing, you condone the negative behavior and consequently lose... […]

  • HR Roundtable: The Two Sides of Recruiting People In Transition
    Posted by Steve Browne on 22 agosto 2016 at 08:05

  • 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 […]

    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 22 agosto 2016 at 11:19

    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 […]

  • HR Giant Randstad Purchases Monster. What Does That Mean?
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 12 agosto 2016 at 11:30

    When a consulting firm purchases a big job board, what does that mean? Monster was at it’s heyday in 2000 with a stock price of $91 a share, and was sold for a little more than $3 per share. There are tons of problems with the internet recruiting. Maybe they can fix some of the […]

    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 11 agosto 2016 at 12:08

    The most important thing we do is school and internships, right? So many parents tell their kids to focus on school while mom and dad pay the bills. But, what about a restaurant job?

  • 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 […]

  • Jobseekers Seeking Attention

    The unemployment rate may have dropped to its lowest level since before the Great Recession, but there are still plenty of people out there seeking work (or a better job than the one they have), and some of them will go to some pretty amazing lengths to try and nab that position.

  • Gender Parity: Lead the Way, HR
    Posted by Mark McGraw on 17 agosto 2016 at 14:30

    For a study to find that women are underrepresented at the chief-executive level is not at all surprising. That much we already knew. New research from Korn Ferry provides more evidence of the disparity between men and women in the executive ranks. The same study, however, finds one segment of the C-suite where something resembling […]

    I just came across this interesting piece on Forbes’ site about the different ways organizations are transforming the way business gets done in the modern workplace.
