TLS Continuum Part 82: Is Human Capital Management Dead?

As I listen to the Internet scuttlebutt I have cause to stop and consider whether the HR profession, as we know it , is thriving or either dying or has already died. I have a fellow consultant who told me that the reason why I am not getting the interest in some of my programs is because the majority of HR people are ignorant. Others tell me that we, as a profession, have no fathom how to respond to the demands and needs of the C-Suite. So, what is the dilemma here?

What If Retail Is Your Specialty?

If retail is your career, same thing.  The time to adjust was a while back. …

Metric Deception

Everybody wants to know what the metrics say.  I’m a big fan of big data.  Metrics can play a big part in strategic decisions, but when the rubber meets the road you’re going to use that strategic decision to go accomplish something.

Recruiting strategy involves metrics.  Recruiting is about the part where the rubber meets the road.  What you’re building.

Recruiting is fun and exciting but every new position that we recruit for, comes with some new challenges, some new terminologies and some unknown or partially known job description phrases.

One Step At A Time

One step at a time doesn’t necessarily mean one candidate at a time.  A step can be building a team or a part of a team.

The key is to focus on the business, not a particular hire.  What are you trying to accomplish?  What you are you trying to build?  Work from that perspective and the steps will become clear.  They’ll involve hires.  Maybe one.  Maybe many.

The One That Got Away...

….is a myth.  It’s not the one that got away.  It’s the one that wasn’t a fit, even if you thought it was a fit.  Recruiting is about the one that you are searching for and trying to attract.  When the one in your sites gets away, it’s not the one you are searching for any more.

Don’t waste time on the one that got away.  You need to be focused on the one you are searching for.

Moving On

Netflix built a culture over the years based on the idea that they are not a family, but more of a team.  Like a professional sports team.  The basics are, we are focused solely on results.

You can take time off when you want or work when you want, but you have to produce.  If you produce, great.  If you don’t, we don’t need you.  You could be great at what you do, but if it doesn’t produce what the team needs then we have to move on.  So you’re not really fired.  It’s more like…
