  • Are You Managing to the Right Metrics?
    Posted by Bud Taylor on 23 settembre 2016 at 10:24

    We’re at it again. Wells Fargo is being fined $185,000,000 because employees created about 2,000,000 bogus accounts. Why would good people do this? To meet performance metrics, that’s why. I can hear the management meetings: “Hey, we’re leaving money on the table. Let’s increase our share of wallet. Our average customer has 6.2... […]

  • Here’s What You Need to Know About Filing Your EEO-1
    Posted by Cindy Karrow on 23 settembre 2016 at 09:44

    Companies required to file EEO-1s have only a week left until the September 30th deadline. For companies that have been filing by electronically, there is a new development. The Joint Reporting Committee (JRC) announced earlier this summer the file must be uploaded directly to the production database rather than emailing the file to them. This was... […]

  • What If Managers Didn’t Make Comp Decisions?
    Posted by Dr. Steve Hunt on 23 settembre 2016 at 08:31

    A common objective in redesigning performance management methods is to improve the quality of coaching between managers and employees. This objective is a reaction to traditional performance appraisal processes that focused more on evaluation with relatively little attention given to ongoing continuous performance management conversations. In fact, traditional review processes often made performance... […]

  • Here’s What HR Must Do to Have the Business Impact CEOs Want
    Posted by Dr. John Sullivan on 22 settembre 2016 at 10:01

    A survey released early this year of global CEOs and board chairmen was conducted by the prestigious Conference Board, and it concluded once again that human capital is the top challenge they face. While some in talent management and HR might feel honored to be at the top of the CEO’s watch list,... […]

  • How You Handle the Cultures Will Make Or Break A Merger
    Posted by Charles Coy on 22 settembre 2016 at 09:24

    It’s human nature to fear and resist change, at least initially. And few experiences invoke more stress or uncertainty than a workplace merger or acquisition. No matter how rosy corporate’s official line might be a merger is among the most stressful situations employees face. Disinformation, rumors and fear of the unknown can affect... […]

  • States, Business Groups Sue Over New OT Rules
    Posted by Eric B. Meyer on 21 settembre 2016 at 23:55

    21 states just sued the DOL to stop the new overtime rules. And your company should… …continue to prepare as if the U.S. Department of Labor’s new overtime rules will take effect on December 1, 2016, as scheduled. But what’s this lawsuit all about? Read on… Actually, it’s lawsuits, plural That is, on... […]

    Big companies. Small companies. Private. Public. For-profit. Nonprofit. Manufacturers. Tech shops. Banks. Hospitals. Retailers. You name it. They all want to do right by their employees. To be a place people want to work. To support work-life balance. To pay a fair, living wage wherever possible. As a provider of employee discount programs,... […]

  • Turnover’s Silver Lining
    Posted by Thuy Sindell on 21 settembre 2016 at 08:39

    Employee turnover is higher than ever. In fact, a May 2016 report from Gallup estimates that turnover from millennials alone costs the U.S. economy $30.5 billion each year. Employers are struggling to control these high rates, assuming that something must be wrong with talent management. But a recent study suggests that high turnover... […]

  • It’s Addiction Recovery Month
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 23 settembre 2016 at 10:59

    Addiction isn’t something we like to talk about, or take seriously. We joke about being addicted to Facebook at the same time condemn drugs addicts for their moral inferiority. We assume that it would never happen to us, not understanding that many prescription drug addicts became addicted after taking legally prescribed pills for a bona […] The post It’s Addiction Recovery Month appeared first on Evil HR Lady.

  • Are You Old? Like, Really Old? Like, 35?
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 22 settembre 2016 at 10:56

    Everyone knows that only young people are good at tech jobs. Okay, everyone knows that statement is foolish, but so many tech companies only want to hire young people. One man decided to start a job board for “old geeks.” He’s fighting the idea that you can’t innovate over 30. What else can you do […] The post Are You Old? Like, Really Old?

  • You? A Biased Interviewer? Of Course Not. Oh, Wait…
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 21 settembre 2016 at 12:00

    Most people aren’t experts at conducting job interviews, so it’s no wonder we’re not perfect at it. In fact, we often stink. emphasisHR helped me out on putting together some biases that occur when we’re interviewing. It’s not the traditional spiel about diversity, although that plays a role as well. It’s actually some pretty eye opening […] The post You? A Biased Interviewer? Of Course Not.

  • Exempt? Earning Less than $47,476? Your Life Is About To Flip Upside Down
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 20 settembre 2016 at 11:23

    Everybody likes overtime pay, and starting December 1, about 5 million more people will be eligible for overtime. Yay!!! Except, when it starts happening to you, it’s not always the basket of joy the Department of Labor would have you think. One of my friends ran into this in real life.

  • New Law in MA: No Asking About Salary
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 19 settembre 2016 at 12:13

    Everyone is talking about this. In fact, I’ve talked about it before. But, it’s worth looking at again, to understand why this law can possibly help with salary discrimination. Frankly, I don’t think it needs to be a law, but I do think it needs to become part of the culture. But, as I like […] The post New Law in MA: No Asking About Salary appeared first on Evil HR Lady.

  • Really Bad Interview Questions. Really Bad. Like, Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 16 settembre 2016 at 12:18

    Lots of people stink at interviewing. They think it’s important to come up with “interesting” or “out of the box” questions for job candidates. Yeah, well, this is what happens. Here’s my favorite (least favorite?) of the bunch: If you were stuck in an elevator, with no way to get out, and every 30 seconds […] The post Really Bad Interview Questions. Really Bad.

  • Do You Tell People Your Pronouns?
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 15 settembre 2016 at 13:08

    Vanderbilt University put up a poster telling people to introduce themselves by saying, “Hi my name is___ and my pronouns are____” I’m here to tell you that if your pronouns are in the traditional category of he/she you really don’t need to do this. Really. It’s not necessary. To read more click here: Vanderbilt’s Pronoun […] The post Do You Tell People Your Pronouns? appeared first on Evil HR Lady. […]

  • Should Hillary Have Missed the 9-11 Ceremony? Should You Miss an Important Event?
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 13 settembre 2016 at 14:29

    Hillary Clinton undoubtedly felt that the bad press and attacks from the Trump camp from skipping an important event would be worse than suffering through an event with pneumonia. She was probably wrong, as she couldn’t suffer through. What about you? Do you try to suffer through things when you should be home in bed? […] The post Should Hillary Have Missed the 9-11 Ceremony?

  • Creepy New Badges that Monitor Your Conversations and Phone Calls in the Bathroom
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 9 settembre 2016 at 14:33

    This is something I shouldn’t need to say, but hang up before you go into the bathroom. Okay? Really, your conversation can wait 5 minutes. Or two minutes, if you’re fast. Also, being connected is a great thing. Having your boss monitor your heart rate is not a good thing. Can we all just have […] The post Creepy New Badges that Monitor Your Conversations and Phone Calls in the Bathroom appeared first on Evil HR Lady. […]

  • Culture Change: Chicken or Egg?
    Posted by Jack Robinson on 23 settembre 2016 at 13:00

    Which comes first, culture change or increased profits? I touched on this chicken-and-egg issue in our October 16 cover story, “Culture-Change Agents.” The article looks at how Microsoft CHRO Kathleen Hogan and her team have been working to develop a “growth mind-set” among 118,000 workers at the tech giant. Some experts argue the best way […]

  • War for Talent Hits Retail
    Posted by Andrew McIlvaine on 22 settembre 2016 at 16:55

    Although seasonal hiring for the retail industry is expected to be mostly flat compared to last year, finding employees to fill positions for the holiday season is expected to be tougher this year, given changes in the economy and in the retail sector itself. Macys, Target and Toys R Us have announced they’ll hold their […]

  • The Toll of Talking Politics
    Posted by Mark McGraw on 21 settembre 2016 at 15:30

    It’s fair to say that this very unique presidential race has engendered plenty of, let’s say, spirited conversation. Even if you abstain from political chatter at the office, you’ve probably heard at least one co-worker offering an in-depth analysis of the candidates and the issues shaping the 2016 election season. And, as we enter the […]

  • Successful C-Suite Psychopaths
    Posted by Michael J. O'Brien on 20 settembre 2016 at 18:08

    Higher-than-expected levels of psychopathic traits exist among people found in the upper echelons of the corporate business sector, and companies should undertake psychological screening to help identify ‘successful psychopaths.’ That’s according to new research presented at the Australian Psychological Society’s Congress, which was recently held in Melbourne. Forensic psychologist Nathan Brooks says emerging studies show that, while […]

  • Ratedly Review-Tracking App Rates
    Posted by Kristen Frasch on 19 settembre 2016 at 13:00

    I guess my biggest surprise after speaking recently with Joel Cheesman — creator of the new Ratedly anonymous employee-review monitoring service for employers that launched in May — is that competitors don’t seem to be furiously chasing or even nipping at his heels since the launch. Equally surprising is Cheesman isn’t that concerned about competition or heel-nipping at all. He’s doing […]
