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

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

The Scenerio:

Hiring Manager: "So what do you want to do"

Candidate: "I'd like to do XYZ but I would also be interested in working later on in ABC!"

Hiring Manager: "Well I think you could really do well doing GHI so you're hired! Congrats... Hear is your uniform, this is what you will wear for the rest of your career!"

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. While we normally decline the business at that point, for a variety of reasons we have chosen to be part of a few of these over the years. Nearly every time I regret being convinced that this next account will be different. Now I will say, with my finance background, I get the logic that managing rogue spend is important and a system can be a good way to do… Continue

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

Job Boards don’t find people jobs. People find people jobs

To read all my posts see 'The SavageTruth' here





We are going to recover from this downturn, and when we do, the talent shortage is going to be more severe than anything we experienced a year or two ago. Finding talent, connecting with those talent and building talent communities is going to be what separates the winners from the losers in the recruitment industry, in my opinion.



Sourcing talent will become… Continue

Why We Built Instead of Bought: The Genesis of an ATS

OG Newton Interface Circa 2005. We've since ome out of the dark ages.





Does the industry need more recruiting software? Many think not.



We think that as long as the current offerings do solve the major problems, there is room for competition.

Why the Recession is Good for You, the Buyers of Software. 3 Emerging Trends From the Fishbowl

“You better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone. For the times they are a-changin’”

Bob Dylan







The Fishbowl



A couple of weeks ago I learned that my co-workers call the office that I share with our CEO, “The Fishbowl”. The Fishbowl is the nerve center of Newton Software. Given our small footprint, the Fishbowl acts as the design studio, front office, communications center and test lab. Sometimes our co-workers might say it more resembles an… Continue

Summer Plans Revealed: More Innovation, Less Fish



“Our Age of Anxiety is, in great part, the result of trying to do today’s jobs with yesterday’s tools.” Marshall McLuhan











I was at a barbeque in San Francisco this weekend and while everyone agreed that it’s nice that summer has finally arrived, our conversation inevitably meandered into talk of work and our summer work intentions. Alex, a partner in a small marketing consultancy, remarked how he planned to lay low and enjoy the summer, taking… Continue
