Caught the news this morning that Apple begun moving employees into its new, futuristic, spaceship-looking, and $5 Billion costing campus in Callifornia last week. The space (or space ship) seems to be by all accounts incredible, (and I suppose for $5B it had better be), and reading the article over and looking at some of the pics of the new …

John Whitaker Hourly Hiring, John Whitaker, Worldwide FOT

Volume recruiting. The bane of the recruiting experience. I don’t care how good you are as a recruiting professional, until you’ve put on the flame suit and sat in a volume recruiting chair, you’ll never be able to fully appreciate the job – OR the people who successfully DO the job.

The sustained recovery in the labor market has pushed unemployment to near “full employment” levels of about 4.5% in the US, and in many sectors and job roles most employers would report ‘good help …

Laurie Ruettimann HR, Laurie Ruettimann, Worldwide FOT

Employee engagement numbers are low all over the world, and sometimes I think HR professionals forget that they’re employees, too. Work sucks for them as much as it sucks for other people.

Tim Sackett Warns to Be Careful What You Incentivize

Tim Sackett Tim Sackett, Worldwide FOT

I’m fascinated in how we compensate and incentivize employees. Not the actual process, but the decision-making process behind the what and how we do it. In my experience, how this usually goes is a two-level process: First Level: Someone has a hunch, or it’s being done this way somewhere else.
