I am just sayin....

My “daughter” likes to preface her more profound statements with the saying “ I am just sayin…” and it seemed appropriate for this post to begin with her saying. Over the past year there has been much discussion in the social media realm about the future of HR.

Recently I have read and heard an ongoing discussion about the future of the human resource profession. On one side is the school of thought that says we need to go back to the days when we were called Personnel. Back to the…

The best ever follow-up interview question: “How did you come up with the idea?"

I’m working on a blog post on job interviews — from the employer side of the desk. After all, there are thousands of “how-to” articles, blog posts, and advice on “acing the interview” from a candidates viewpoint. But, how about “acing the interview” as employer, while at the same time providing a great…

Honesty in little things is not a little thing

If we poll our employee population, you are very likely going to hear the response that they are looking for an authentic work environment. But just what does authentic mean?

Dictionary.com defines the term as “not false or copied; genuine; real” So look at your organization or your functional area of…

Human Capital: Assets or Chattel?

I Know I am right, that is my job!!!!!

Several years ago I walked into my favorite bookstore and was fascinated by a book on the shelf.What caught my eye was the bright orange cover and the band of duct tape across the cover. The book was Chip and Dan Heath’s first book titled “Made to Stick.” Since then I have been looking forward to reading their other works. It is no different for their newest work titled “Decisive.”

In Chapter 7 titled“Ooch”, they talk about a company which scheduled interviews for an open…

Get off the Bench

My local churches have come through again. One of them has a sermon posted for this weekend titled Get off the Bench. It made me think for a moment about how that would apply to HR. When you think about it that is where HR is today. We are on that bench. We as HR professionals seem to be complacent with staying in one position even if that leads us to be…

Recruit Military

I'm curious to see if anyone uses Recruit Military as a resource to find veterans/retired military job seekers.  We've gotten a few calls about job fairs and job posting packages, but costs are a factor and we don't normally see a great ROI on job fairs.  We're always looking to hire vets, so if anyone has bought a package I'd love to hear your thoughts. …

First in HR: Know Your Numbers in Hiring

With any job, it's important to know where you stand and then set goals for yourself, and often times this is a numbers game. As the hiring manager, your goals need to be something tangible and quantitative. It's not enough to show the metrics of your busywork (humber of job ads posted, hours logged or resumes read).

Please do not judge a book by it's cover - The Marissa Mayer Edict Part II

Over the past almost 7 years that we have been blogging int he HR space we have made much about the bad decision by corporate management to rely solely on the recruitment of passive candidates to fulfill their talent management needs. Now Yahoo has reportedly taken this to a new level -  Not only can you not work outside the office, you have to have ivory tower credentials to boot. Lets get some facts out on the table right upfront less someone accuse me of not appreciating the efforts that…
