The 5 Skills I Honed From Other Jobs That Have Served Me Well in my HR Career

Believe it or not, I didn’t go to college thinking, “Oh boy! I can’t wait to work in HR!” And there’s a pretty decent chance you didn’t either. Eventually, if you’re like me, you got some official HR education under your belt. But a lot of the skills you use every day are skills you […]

I had something happen to me recently that was really just one more reminder that life can change in an instant.  It seems like life has a way of trying to shake us awake and bring your focus back to what’s really important when we start to focus on things that really aren’t that important. […]

Trump Can’t Stop Immigrant Hiring!

Before Trump was hired, err, voted in as President. I was asked to respond to this question: What impact do you think Trump will have on immigrant hiring?  My response was probably a bit more positive at that point, pre-Trump than it is now, but I still remain bullish on immigrant hiring. Why? Because it’s what […]

T3 – @GlintInc – Introducing Narrative Intelligence

Last week I had this idea about how A.I.’s real value would be in HR and not in Recruiting. Most A.I. technology right now in the market is focused on TA and it’s easy to see the productivity and efficiency gains from A.I. in the TA space. It’s not as to see the same advantages […]

The Single Best Incentive You Can Offer Millennials!

The world is millennial crazy. If you read this blog you know I think about 99% of the millennial stuff is pure B.S. (we were all young once, it’s mostly great, but sometimes sucks, buy a helmet!), but every once in a while I find something that really hits home. Student debt is the real […]

Be Careful What You Incentivize! You Actually Might Get It!

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. Second Level: Someone in compensation […]

The real value of A.I. is in HR, not Recruiting!

What if you could catch and stop sexual harassment in the workplace before it got started? What about other types of violence, embezzlement, etc.? What if you could determine when disengagement was starting with an employee and address it immediately? All those would be pretty powerful advantages to HR and leadership, don’t you think!?

Every Moment Matters! #UltiConnect @UltimateHCM

So, I’m out at the Ultimate Software Conference this week and they had one of the most unique keynotes, Will Smith! Yeah, that Will Smith! Fresh Prince, I Am Legend, Hancock, Men In Black, Bad Boy himself! At HR Conferences you don’t normally get big time Hollywood. You usually get a dude who’s really good […]

Hi, My Name is Tim, and I’m a Lonely Middle-aged Guy.

Middle-aged men face this weird life-path. You start a career. Get married. Move to the suburbs. Start a family. Become a little league coach. Watch your kids graduate. Then you get ready to die. I feel like I’ve got more friends than ever in my life, but if I stop and really put down on […]
