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.

"People ask me what I do in winter when there’s no baseball. I’ll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring."
- Rogers Hornsby
I can't be more excited about the start of baseball season! I truly love the game and can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be on a Sunday afternoon other than the ballpark. Hope springs eternal this time of year as well, and despite a less-than-stellar start, I'm still holding out hope that my Padres might make…

Paying an employee to quit. Does it make any sense at all? Big time, and not just because Amazon says so.
Amazon offers employees at their fulfillment centers after their first year of work $2,000 if they wish to quit. That payoff climbs by $1,000 each year until it caps out at $5,000. Of course, the headline of the money-to-quit contract offered to employees is “Please Don’t Take…Continue

One of the problems facing the long-term unemployed today is that the rest of us – i.e., the people with jobs – think these people are either lazy or have no marketable skills. We beat our chests and proclaim if we lost a job, we’d be out the next day, looking for work until we found a way to make ends meet.…Continue
