Moneyball for the Talent Function

Mark Fogel Mark Fogel, Metrics, Old School, Talent Strategy

Turnover continues to be a problem, engagement at an almost all-time low (if you don’t believe me check with The Gallup Organization), and very little has been done to crack the code of effective recruitment measurement or tactics. Adding to all this, it is a buyers’ market for applicants again with unemployment down to 4.3% nationally this May. All the …

Laurie Ruettimann Laurie Ruettimann, Metrics

No environment exists in America where people are fired dispassionately, quickly and easily. It just doesn’t happen, folks.

One cool thing about going to a bunch of HR and Talent conferences in the spring is you get to hear what everyone is doing around the world.  At one point in the past two weeks, I honestly can’t remember who or where I heard someone speak about measuring their “increase in talent” to the organization.
