How did we lose our way?

Posted by Daniel T. Bloom on April 16, 2014 at 11:00am 2 Comments

On April 14 the Wall Street Journal ran an article about companies eliminating their HR departments. If you poll large enough population of corporate executives about the role of HR, a majority will tell you that HR is an obstacle to getting things done.

The Anatomy of the Counter Offer

Posted by Chadd Balbi on April 16, 2014 at 8:52am 3 Comments



The subject of the counter offer is a very highly debated topic. If you are in a job search while currently employed and in fact entertain a new offer, it is a safe assumption that your current employer will do what it takes to keep you.

#GPTWConf A Two Thumbs Up Experience 

I recently went down to the Bayou, joining 1,100 HR practitioners and leaders in downtown New Orleans for the 11th Annual Great Places to Work Conference.  It made sense that this super event was held in the Super Dome, because, in my opinion at least,…

Three Years Later

It's been three years since I logged in here... glad to be back!   So, a that time, it was 2011 and we were clawing our way out of the recession with temp jobs on the rise as everyone looked ahead to growth in permanent placements.  The boom of employer branding initiatives and spending that we saw in the early 2000's had declined greatly, as companies were far less focused on attracting or keeping talent.  And the expansion in the number of web 3.0 sites that are characterized by personalized…See More
