Recruitment Process Outsourcing. This phrase burst onto the recruiting scene in the past 10-15 years or so, but the concept of it has been around for much longer. It was consistently used in the 1970’s during Silicon Valley’s very competitive market for high tech labor – it was very hard to find…

I'm That Mime Inside the Imaginary Box

Mime Box

We’ve all seen them. Those annoyingly entertaining mimes who pull themselves down a sidewalk with an imaginary rope, or ride an imaginary escalator down behind a barricade. But the one they are probably the most well-known for is the imaginary box that has seemed to trap them. They can press on the walls, scream, pound their fists – but nothing penetrates that box!

Branding. It’s no longer just something that cowboys do to their cattle. It’s now a major emphasis for all types of organizations. Think of those huge companies who have the most recognizable logos and names – McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, Exxon, Wal-Mart. You don’t…

Cannibalization of HR - Save Recruiting from Being the Next Victim

Recently I read a great book called In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the whaleship Essex. It tells the true life story of a whaling ship from Nantucket in the 1820’s which was sunk by a rogue sperm whale.  Herman Melville based his famed novel Moby Dick on this tragedy. The twenty despairing men of the Essex were…

It's About Jobs

I live in Washington, DC so it’s easy to make things political. This town manages to do that with nearly everything. But this is not really about politics even though it may require politicians to truly have an impact. This is about jobs and the crisis that confronts us. A few points to consider:


  • This might take a while. Typically in the past the US economy would return to a normal employment outlook six months after a recession, but the McKinsey Global Institute…

Some Businesses Shunning Mexico for American Locations

Once upon a pretty short time ago, companies who were thinking of outsourcing or building new manufacturing plants considered Mexico a good idea.  And why not?   Labor is inexpensive, the weather is decent, and Mexican workers are diligent and competent.   There are advantages to locating factories in Mexico, thanks in part to the NAFTA agreement.   Mexico gives businesses easy proximity to the United States, so there is a reduction in shipping costs.

But now Mexico is consumed by a…

Curiosity kills the cat but wins the customer

If you’re searching online for a blind date, you can narrow the field demographically to, let’s say, people between age 35 and 45 who live in Denver. And you can take a peek at the all-important photograph. But is that enough information to make even one valid assumption about someone? Before you commit to that blind date, you’ll want to know what kind of personality they have and what their interests and values are, among other things. That same kind of curiosity about your customers gives…

Employee Engagement/Motivation – Part I

In a recent issue of SIReview I read an article by Amy Bingham titled “Are your employees engaged? OR Just really good actors?”

The article hits on a specific topic of heavy interest and debate regarding employment as the rate of unemployment across the country still sits in the “double digits”.

Even in September 2009 at a state SHRM (Society of Human Resource Management) conference with over 500 Iowa human resource professionals present, we were exposed to this topic… Continue
