I want to get on a plane and head to San Francisco to experience “Creator“, the new restaurant with the world’s first robot-made burger. “Creator isn’t the machine so much as it is the diner, the chef who uses the instrument, the dining experience, and the designers who created these robots.” As we talk about the future of work, technology …

Creating Connections That Matter: Will Glassdoor Ever Adopt the Netflix Model?

Holland Dombeck McCue A.I., Google for Jobs, Holland Dombeck 2 Comments

Two topics that have been gracing the HR and recruiter headlines lately – for better or worse are Glassdoor’s sale to Recruit Holdings and AI. For me, Glassdoor is a partner I love to hate. I love that it’s a channel that leadership “gets” and wants to talk about related to my area of work, but I hate it because …

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard that the machines are coming. More specifically, that the machines are coming to the workplace.

Ahhh.  The Olympics.  The beauty.  The drama.  The similarities to our work world.

Kris Dunn A.I., Kris Dunn

I’m a straight white guy, which is equal parts boring and pedestrian. Because we all tribe together, that means the majority of my friends are straight. <This is where I should insert a note to tell you that I have friends who aren’t straight, and that I’d make a good to great VP of Diversity, even though I’m white, male …

Paul Hebert A.I., Culture, Employee Engagement, Employment Branding and Culture, Engagement and Satisfaction, Managing People, Paul Hebert, Performance, Recognition

Kate Weimer A.I., Kate Weimer

CMS Wire recently posted an article titled, Ready or Not, Here Come the ‘Digital Employees’. It was the term ‘Digital Employees’ that caught my attention in the article’s title. HR has been talking about the dreaded artificial intelligence takeover since someone put the letters ‘A’ and ‘I’ next to each other, but never had I actually heard A.I. for the workplace …
