Can you imagine what your world would be like if you had a Dwight in your office.
worships and views his boss as model of success. His ultimate goal it to be 2nd only to him and while Dwight craves authority he also takes the authority even when it is not delegated or given. Sound like anyone in you… Continue

I was getting gas for my truck the other night. A pretty simple activity today with pay at the pump and fast passes, and something that is relatively solitary – many times happily so. As I was about half way done, a young boy, about 10 or 11 years old, approached my car. I did not see him until he was standing about 3 feet from me along side my truck. I was surprised, but looked at him, smiled and said hi. He said hi and then took a step closer – he could have been in my kids’ grade school… Continue

Expect 2010 to be the year of musical chairs as employees begin to jump ship for better employment opportunities. The aftermath of a recession is employee disengagement. Unfortunately, your key players won’t tell you they are dissatisfied until they are walking out the door. As well-performing companies start to cherry pick top talent, it begins a chain of employee turnover events that will affect many companies.
72% of employers restructured or laid off employees since the recession… Continue

You may well be aware of the HR Carnival
either as a contributor or reader. The last edition was published by @MikeVanDervort on his excellent blog Human Racehorses
I’ve always been a fan of the Vlog. That’s a video blog if you need a translation. I feel this gives you a truer feeling for the person behind the blog and for a blogger it can be a quick… Continue

AS A TRAINER
, I have always used various approaches to help get people engaged. We all know that this can be a difficult feet. For those of us that have been doing it for years we don't see the big deal. It's simple isn't it? Ultimately you use what best fits your personality, meshes with the audience that you are presenting to, and what can ultimately reflect the message and learning you are trying to reinforce. Am I right? Media, should reinforce and appeal to the content you… Continue

The fuel door on my car is busted. We had a little mishap at the gas station the other day and the fuel door latch was thankfully the only minor casualty. It won’t take much to replace it however the interruption to the crush of work and holiday schedule is annoying. It sounds odd perhaps but I think it was my car’s way of telling me to slow down the usual driving pace before moving forward. Compatible to the inevitable year-end reflection and resolution-making, the following is my glimpse in… Continue

There’s been a lot of debate recently about the future recruitment landscape, and how current events and technological advances will transform the way companies recruit. I took part in at least 2 separate discussions about this at London Unconference.
Certainly we 3rd party recruiters have many challenges ahead, and one the biggest, I believe, will come from the generational shift in decision makers from Baby Boomers to Generation X.
Over the last 20 years or so agencies… Continue

I’ve learned over the last decade that by changing my watch to the local time before a long flight, I can reduce jet lag to nothing (don’t know about you but it works for me). The trick is pretending it is the time zone you are going to and acting appropriately. I even try it a day before boarding…but then must remember to make the plane instead of going to bed.
I leave Sunday night for New Delhi, the first stop on our delegation’s itinerary. I just googled the world… Continue

In my “book” the holidays (and not simply the one we most recently celebrated) are a time for reflection and giving thanks in more ways than one. I try every year to take time alone and with my family (especially with my children) to reflect on how blessed we are. This can be challenging during the rush of the season and the many “priorities” imposed as a result of expectations we generally put on ourselves. Add to that my children, who… Continue

India. 1.2 billion people. 600,000 are “unorganized”! Ok, I’ll start there. What does “unorganized” mean? Can that many people actually be off the grid? How do you get “organized” when you start off “unorganized”?
Preparing for my ten-day adventure in India (beginning next Sunday) means collecting information from lots of sources. Too much, too early and my learning will color my senses when I’m on the ground. I’ll have too much baggage to be an effective observer. I want as few… Continue

I had a great time at the Recruiting Unconference (trulondon) last Thursday…lots of interesting and thought-provoking debate and information. Over the next few blog posts I am going to write about some things that have had me thinking.
A key track for me was the one on Social Media…I have certainly tried to embrace LinkedIn, Twitter, Blogging over the last year or so and talk passionately to candidates about the need for them to get connected and get in the conversation. I was keen… Continue

This week I was talking with some of our Jumpstart my job search
participants, and realized that there are some themes to the challenges and opportunities that they found, which are consistent whether they were just beginning their job search or had been at it for quite a while. So I decided to summarize 5 keys they found most impactful in getting their job search off the ground.
1.Treat it like a… Continue

We hear about it in the news every so often out here in Silicon Valley: a big player at Google has left for Facebook. Or a Yahoo executive has been seduced by Microsoft. Or some perky young startup has snatched a head developer from a venerable software giant.
Silicon Valley's human resources arena, ripe with star engineers and executives, is like a day time soap opera, full of unexpected surprises and shocking betrayals. Every time a transfer of talent occurs, juicy questions… Continue

This week i’ve been on a talk show that is fast becoming a favourite. H.R.Happyhour
which is organised by a host i admire, Steve Boese. The topic of conversation and debate, is HR Dead? I read a number of blogs this week commenting on the death of the job board. Despite the much reported demise they seem to be still around. The latest to join the nearly dead list are recruiters. It seems we are on… Continue

Susan Hand’s Tips on Social Media
1) Decide! Do it, or decide not to do it. Don’t over think getting involved, learning about it, just start investigating today. If it is fear holding you back or lack of time, start one day at a time.
2) Think and plan! Have a goal and stick to it.
3) Research and Discover! Know what you want to use the resource for and the audience you want to develop or discover. Does that social media site operate in the manner you operate?… Continue

Jenifer Lambert - a Pinnacle Society recognized, top rated executive recruiter - recently interviewed me for her Recruiter Earth radio show. It was unscripted and live, and she asked some tough, frank questions about the keys to partnering with corporate HR.
I joked that I know that, for many third party recruiters, HR stands for "human roadblock". But I also shared some insights into what the best, most effective third party recruiter partners… Continue
