I field calls on a daily basis from candidates that are “on the bench” looking for their next gig. I also speak with many candidates that I am trying to recruit to find out what…

Managing Performance

No longer an annual event

Naturally, I am fascinated by how businesses operate and what management styles work in certain situations.  Recently, I have focused my attention on how postindustrial age hierarchy is not working and what that means for companies who are conventional in their human capital management structure.

TLS Continuum Part 68: What ever happened to the Cadbury Model?

I had the opportunity last week to attend the monthly meeting of my local chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management, which covered a legislative update for its membership. I am from a family of lawyers so I understand they have a role to play. But every time I come away with the same feeling.
