I’ve noticed a recent, frightening phenomenon. And I think I may be a perpetrator (heaven help me). In an attempt to stage a preemptive intervention, I thought there could be no better time than the present to address this odd and interesting tick–one that HR professionals, interviewers, and interviewees abuse unabashedly. The head nod. Or as some others call it, …

The earth-shattering events always expose the problems under the hood. It’s what you do when those problems are exposed that matters. COVID-19 and the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Elijah McClain, and Ahmaud Aubrey flipped the United States and the world on its head.  It’s a difficult time for HR professionals, many who have entered into this new world …

Over the past 6 months, my organization has been in the midst of transitioning to the Oracle HCM suite. The decision to go to an HCM system was largely based on our disjointed and highly antiquated HR systems, which led to mountains of manual processes.

Disruption sucks. We’re in the middle of arguably the most disruptive period in 50 years for business. While some might counter with the advent of the internet as the biggest disruption, I’d mention that change happened over the course of a decade. We had time to watch it unfold.

Despite What You Hear, the Jury is Still Out on Remote Work

John Hollon COVID-19, employee experience, Employee Relations, Organizational Development, Workplace Flexibilty 0 Comments

Here’s a confession: I was working remotely long before working remotely was cool. Way back in 2010, when I was Editor of Workforce Management, our corporate leadership decided they had enough of California, thank you very much, and decided to move Workforce from Southern California to Chicago — after first floating the possibility of moving to Detroit. The best thing …

Your Organization Is On A Political Rollercoaster, Hold on Tight

William Wiggins Communication, Corporate Social Responsibility, Corporate Social Responsiblity, Current Affairs, Diversity, Employment Branding and Culture, politics

From the boardroom to the men’s room; from the chat features of Zoom and Skype to text, employees are engaging in a political jousting of sorts.
