  • HR Vendors Are Discovering Small Businesses
    Posted by David Creelman on 17 gennaio 2017 at 16:00

    Ten years ago when I spoke to HR technology vendors, they all said they were hoping to reach the CHRO of a Fortune 500 company.  That’s all very well, but I was a bit concerned that every single vendor was going after the same 500 people. Since then we’ve seen an explosion of... […]

  • The Secret to Helping Your Average Child Succeed
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 19 gennaio 2017 at 15:01

    Let’s face it: Your children are not likely to be above average. Unlike the people of Lake Wobegon, our kids follow a standard bell curve and that means most children will fall into the “average” category. Not brilliant. Not stupid. Just normal kids. While we like to think that our offspring will, of course, be […] The post The Secret to Helping Your Average Child Succeed appeared first on Evil HR Lady. […]

    I posted here earlier this month about a provocative Wall Street Journal piece in which the creators and early adopters of the 401(k) retirement-savings vehicle lament the revolution they started.
