Amazon continues to be (IMHO), America’s most interesting company. From the sheer range of businesses in which they operate to their single-minded focus on dominating their categories and increasing their willingness, (almost at a Google-like level) to experiment with brand new and innovative products and services… Amazon is always fascinating. And this willingness to experiment seems to sometimes extend to …

A big part of employee engagement is connecting the “why” of the company to the “why” of the individual. The better a company does that, the better the individual will engage and succeed. And, not coincidentally, the better the company will do as well. When you’re connected to the company and its mission, it’s easier to put up with minor …

Dawn Burke Dawn Burke, HR (& Life!) Advice, Onboarding, Selection, Talent Strategy

(But I’m still gonna give you tips on how to onboard properly; it’s coming a little later) Onboaring is important, but not as important to your CEO as you might think. Face it, it’s not mission critical. Companies have been surviving for years without 3-to-6-month integration programs, 4-week trainings before setting foot in a cubical, “scavenger hunts” to meet peers, …

No one has ever accused me of adding complexity to a situation. Small words work best with us Midwest folk. Unfortunately, we sometimes allow our desire to provide structure—especially metrics and processes—to actually complicate our simple goals. Take onboarding.

“Go and fix your makeup, well, it’s just a break up, Run and hide your crazy and start actin’ like a lady…” Miranda Lambert sings about it, there are t-shirts galore made in honor of it… and yet it’s a concept not readily exposed by corporate HR. Hide your crazy. Exposed? Why would HR want to bare their (collectively speaking) crazy? …
