“Screw your cubicle farm!” The free agent nation is here.
In 2001, Dan Pink published a bestselling and forward-thinking business book titled Free Agent Nation: The Future of Working for Yourself. By all current reports, that future has arrived.

“Contingent labor is king," writes Russ Banham in the May issue of HRO…Continue

In September, I attended iCIMS’ customer advisory board and was incredibly impressed by the level of discussion around strategic talent acquisition and the best practices shared during the two day event. Below is a recap of my session on creating a positive new hire experience.

Are you pondering whether or not you are a trusted advisor to your client? If so – then STOP pondering, the answer is likely “no”. If you are viewed by your client as a trusted advisor, it's obvious and you don’t have to think about it.

A friend of mine forwarded me this article from Yahoo on McDonald's. It's interesting because he said "check out this video from Micky D's. I guess we have to stop saying would you like fries with that and ask if they want an award for cracking eggs...."
Funny thing is that he is unemployed.... Even funnier the people in the video…Continue
