Hiring The Right Personality

A large part of the human capital supply chain is the acquisition and sourcing of many talents – but the process of obtaining these assets in the first place is also an important detail.

Quality hiring practices are too frequently abandoned because of the inconvenience of finding the proper employee in a sufficient amount of time. There are a number of ways to ease the process and the one I’m addressing today is…

Would you wear the same pair of pants for the rest of your life?

Same pants... for the rest of your life!

The Scenerio:

Keep the Performance Review, Trash the Bad Manager

For years there have been arguments for and against the performance review. There are many who diss the process, wanting to get rid of the actual review itself. There are others who feel it is a bedrock of information for both employee development, self checks, collecting historical data on the employee and as a way to evaluate the way a manager simply manages.



The performance review can be bad but it can also be great.

Idiots lay blame solely on a tool

Rant: Death to the VMS

In the course of the staffing portion of our business, occasionally we are asked to be part of a VMS (vendor management system) program.

If you are not turning into an expert you’re in trouble. The generalist is dead.

For many years I wondered what the real difference was between being good and being great. How do you clearly define it? What is it that puts a person or an organization at a different level than the rest? And I did read Jim Collins’ book which addresses the subject but I got my simple answer in a Homer Simpson DUH! moment watching TV. (How else do you achieve a Homer Simpson DUH! moment?) Ironically it was a General Motors…

Driving Costs Out of the Human Capital Supply Chain - an interview with Dustin Mattison from Logipi

Having helped more than 800 staffing and recruiting firms automate their operations, Tim Giehll, CEO of Bond Talent US, brings an interesting perspective to the subject of continuous process improvement, and he does not believe the days of Six Sigma are over. He does acknowledge that, without the star power of Jack Welch and Larry Bossidy, Six Sigma is no longer grabbing the attention of the media the way it did in its heyday, but says it is still "alive and… Continue
