The Apple AppStore has over 100,000 iPhone applications. Verizon's Droid is a a few months old and Google just launched the Nexus One. Microsoft has Windows Mobile and the Palm has the hot new Palm Pre. The current king of Mobile Business is the Blackberry (RIM), but it is losing ground fast. Apple, Microsoft, Google, Palm, Verizon & RIM all going after the same market and that makes for great headlines.The… Continue

Lots of people are talking about employer branding these days. While I agree that all companies should be conscious of how they are viewed by employees and prospective employees, I think many branding efforts are misdirected and a plain waste of money and effort.
It’s not about how many people think you’re great. It’s who, and why.
Brains over beans
I work with young tech companies who, by their very nature, are selective in who they employ. Most really are… Continue

It's funny, people are always asking me about what I see inside my crystal ball, where are things headed in the market or what's hot? They seem to be intersted in the newest tricks, places to go on the web, social networks and how to find the best talent. My first thought is usually that before you do anything new you have to first look at all the tricks and tools you already have.
The truth is that I really don't have anything new to tell people about. Most of my thoughts and… Continue

A Worthwhile Investment.
More and more HR recruiters are using video technology to solve the challenge of nurse vacancies. According to a Wharton School of Business National Research survey, there is a 51% greater understanding of any subject presented through video. The survey also states that prospects are 72% more likely to purchase a product or service when video is used. This translates directly to job candidates' positive response when introduced to the facility through a… Continue

admit it – I’m a sucker for bright shiny new technology. In fact, I’m susceptible enough that I spend a good deal of time being very critical of anything new. Why? (a) I’m weak, and (b) a lot of this stuff just disappears and you can’t remember why you liked it in the first place.
And how is this relevant to job boards and careers site? Well…almost every couple of weeks I am approached by another vendor with a ‘killer’ tool that integrates into an existing site and will drive up… Continue

We are witnessing the end of an era. Since the end of the World War 2, large companies have controlled the ebb and flow of the US economy: from the reign of the Detroit automakers to the rise of west coast tech moguls like Microsoft and Google. Small businesses have been the tiny vessels tossed in the wake of gargantuan tankers, forcing their products on consumers through sheer bulk.
The tides are changing though- the failing American economy has exposed the incapability of big… Continue

Okay here it goes.....I have spent the last few weeks researching Staffing Software for the company I work for. We plan on implementing this change sometime in January 2010. I have seen a couple of demos, one of which I was pretty impressed with. I have even posted a Blog and a Discussion here on this site, in hopes of getting some feedback on what seems to be the most widely used or most popular, yet satisfying software out on the market today. I don't know if I'm not being clear on the info I… Continue

There are many open source products available to the Human Resources community, but I feel as though many HR professionals are unaware of how these free software products can be implemented and beneficial to their organization. As we try to maintain our budgets and businesses in this tumultuous time, it is important to know what free software options are out there for HR professionals and how they can be utilized within their organizations.
Open source tools may be the closest… Continue

Despite the massive layoffs across the board in technology from Big Blue to small-fry tech companies, there appears to be a streak of confidence among the masses. People in technology – engineers, software developers, IT, sales and marketing – seem to be a bit stronger through this crisis than in the past. Some of this may have to do with the bubble bursting on many of us in the dot com era. Or, it may have to do with the hope a new administration promises. More likely, much of it has to do… Continue

Late last year I spoke at a luncheon on the pool deck of the Hilton Hotel in Brisbane. During my brief address, I commented that technology, which was designed to assist our poductivity, is actually hindering our effectiveness to do smart business.
I explained that while clients attempting to arrange a meeting with me will be tapping away for minutes on their Raspberries searching for the calendar functions; the yearly planner of my Filofax is open at the ready,… Continue
