How did we lose our way?

On April 14 the Wall Street Journal ran an article about companies eliminating their HR departments. If you poll large enough population of corporate executives about the role of HR, a majority will tell you that HR is an obstacle to getting things done.

A couple of weeks ago Robin Schooling, fellow HR blogger at HR Schoolhouse, stated she had asked a group of HR…

If you are in a job search while currently employed and in fact entertain a new offer, it is a safe assumption that your current employer will do what it takes to keep you. And while having two companies fighting over your professional services can feel flattering, it is incumbent on you to fully understand the situation and not just take the highest offer.

This article is not written to persuade…

8 Sales Hiring Mistakes Employers Make

Representing only 5-10% of the total sales population, consistently producing top performing sales people are extremely rare. As a result, smart companies aggressively pursue these 'diamonds in the ruff' and are consistently looking for an edge to attract the best sales people.

The Genius Of Amazon’s $5,000-To-Quit Plan

Paying an employee to quit. Does it make any sense at all? Big time, and not just because Amazon says so.

Amazon offers employees at their fulfillment centers after their first year of work $2,000 if they wish to quit. That payoff climbs by $1,000 each year until it caps out at $5,000. Of course, the headline of the money-to-quit contract offered to employees is “Please Don’t Take…

#GPTWConf A Two Thumbs Up Experience

#GPTWConf A Two Thumbs Up Experience 

I recently went down to the Bayou, joining 1,100 HR practitioners and leaders in downtown New Orleans for the 11th Annual Great Places to Work Conference.  It made sense that this super event was held in the Super Dome, because, in my opinion at least, China Gorman and her team did a super job putting on an event…

The Staggering Plight Of The Long-Time Unemployed

One of the problems facing the long-term unemployed today is that the rest of us – i.e., the people with jobs – think these people are either lazy or have no marketable skills. We beat our chests and proclaim if we lost a job, we’d be out the next day, looking for work until we found a way to make ends meet.…

Don’t Be a Sales Schmuck

Slick lines, canned responses, and a voice that sounds just like the typical salesperson—a common combination for too many salespeople today. Even those who avoid this Wolf of Wall Street persona still tend to talk too much, listen too little, and dominate versus facilitate conversations with buyers. Is it any wonder that almost everyone, including salespeople themselves, dislike being on the receiving end of a sales pitch?

The definition of a schmuck is:
