A bull or bear jobs market? Or does it matter?

(this post is a reprint of my article written Jan 2011) The one thing economists seem to agree on is that people who already have jobs will get pay increases or bonuses this year. (Keep your checkbook ready.) But there are conflicting data in the news about how many companies actually plan to hire in 2011—and I’m not sure that it really matters. Whether it’s a bull or bear jobs market, companies that continually nurture their people will always maintain the competitive edge. A jobless recovery…See More

Hire Right and Fire Fast- Facing Up to Hiring Mistakes

Of course you want the best talent available for your business, with the characteristics and personality that fit your culture. Hiring the “right” people is critical to every organization. In a recession the stakes are even higher: every smart idea to innovate or save costs matters more; and every bit of passion enhances productivity. There are strong reasons to hire the talent you want quickly, and there are circumstances where it’s okay to take more time. But careful as you might be, you will…See More

Curiosity kills the cat but wins the customer

If you’re searching online for a blind date, you can narrow the field demographically to, let’s say, people between age 35 and 45 who live in Denver. And you can take a peek at the all-important photograph. But is that enough information to make even one valid assumption about someone? Before you commit to that blind date, you’ll want to know what kind of personality they have and what their interests and values are, among other things. That same kind of curiosity about your customers gives you…See More

The Triple Bottom Line and Talent Management

Leading authors are writing about it; conferences are featuring it; and many are calling on corporations to report on it. The triple bottom line—people, profits and planet—has unofficially become a leading indicator. Rather than being measured solely on profitability, companies, and their customers, are increasingly adopting “the three pillars” to define business success.The term “triple bottom line” was first used in 1989 by sustainability consultant John Elkington to define business success,…See More

Culture with a little C; don’t let it undermine your business

Probably the most common definition of an organization's culture is "the way we do things around here." If you're an executive describing your culture, you're most likely referring to your mission, vision and values; and your core beliefs and what they represent. Something like: "We have a culture of accountability, high quality customer service, respect for employees and a commitment to community service." And you, yourself, may exhibit and experience all of these characteristics. But what…See More
