Stan Hates His Boss, But He’s Really Just a Bum Employee

RJ Morris Employee Engagement, Engagement and Satisfaction, RJ Morris

Your friends who hate their jobs—we all have them… and its brutal to talk to them, isn’t it? Man, I just cringe when I ask them how their week was—I know negativity and moaning is coming back at me. When they start in about their bad jobs, bad boss, etc., I get responses that are like unfunny Norm moments from …

Hey HR – Is It Time to Be Less Business-y?

Paul Hebert Culture, Employee Engagement, Employee Relations, Employment Branding and Culture, Engagement and Satisfaction, HR, Paul Hebert

This post might whip a few HR heads around. I’m suggesting that that HR may want to spend a bit more time being touchy-feely and less time being all business-y.  I know you’ve been beat up for the past 10 years about getting that proverbial furniture assignment—you know—the seat that must not be named.  You’ve been told that the path …

Before you review this article, do me a personal favor and click this link—it’s only 600 words or so but it will provide some useful context. Last line of the entry is the best: “Nothing is new, get over it!” Assuming you’ve completed that task… soldier on. Here’s the thing: everything we do in HR has been done before, thought …

Hey HR – Who do you want your employees to become?

Paul Hebert Employee Engagement, Employee Relations, Employment Branding and Culture, Good HR, Innovation, Paul Hebert

My company president forwarded me an article from Harvard Business that contained the transcript of an interview that Harvard IdeaCast had with MIT’s Michael Schrage, a frequent HBR blogger.  The focus of the interview was about Mr. Schrage’s newest idea outlined in a short book called: “Who Do You Want Your Customers to Become?”  The interview is pretty short, but …

Why Employees Have a Role In Their Own Engagement

Paul Hebert Culture, Employee Engagement, Engagement and Satisfaction, Good HR, HR, Paul Hebert, Personal Brand, Pop Culture

HR, and management in general, has taken the brunt of the vitriol and blame for low engagement scores. Read anything in the mainstream business press and the blogosphere, and the finger is decisively pointed at executives and managers as the cause for disengagement and low productivity. The subtext is “If those lazy managers and lousy HR ‘types’ would just get …

What is a Good Employee Engagement Score?

Paul Hebert Audacious Ideas, Employee Engagement, Metrics, Paul Hebert

I’m going to take a different tack on today’s post.  Instead of waxing poetic on a point of HR or employee engagement I’m going to start a discussion and then walk away and let you all continue. See, I don’t have an answer for the question I headlined this post with. I truly don’t. What I do have is a …

I am just back from the HR Technology Conference & Exposition where I sat through quite a few technology demonstrations that focused on improving employee engagement. Employee engagement is the greatest scam of the 21st century. You should develop a healthy psyche on your own time and dime, and you shouldn’t rely on anyone or anything to make you feel better …

Other than the people who are actually responsible for it, some federal employees are being forced to stay home as the US government goes into shutdown mode. It started yesterday and like organ failure, will ripple through the halls of federal buildings as government employees begin the process of taking that long awaited unplanned vacation. I’m guessing the two NASA …
