Moneyball Rules: Offering More Experienced Workers Less Money!

For years I’ve been trying to get people to understand this Moneyball concept as it relates to hiring, but few really listen. I know you saw the movie, Moneyball, where a major league baseball general manager finds success by signing and drafting ‘undervalued’ players. The players are undervalued for a number of reasons, it doesn’t […]

America First: The White Collar Workers Who Got Outsourced

Your liberal friends want you to believe everyone who voted for Trump are racist, low paid, middle-aged white dudes from the Midwest. It’s nice and clean when you put it into that box. It fits the narrative they are selling really well.  They don’t want you to know about the black female in California who […]

I’m not an “Us” or a “Them”

Politics are ruining my friendships. Look, I don’t really want to know what you care about, because most of us care about crazy shit that others don’t understand, or can’t understand. You getting me to understand your crazy, probably isn’t a good thing! I have true friends who are pro-life. I love these friends. I don’t […]

Reindeer Games: How Santa Ruined Inclusion Forever

I’m a big fan of what Jennifer McClure is doing with her DisruptHR events! 5-minute presentations that challenge the audience to think about things differently. It’s fast paced, it’s fun, it’s unlike anything else in HR and that’s awesome! If you want to bring a DisruptHR event to your city contact Jennifer through the DisruptHR […]

The One Conference HR Pros Need to Go to in 2017 #WorkHuman

So, I’ve been on the record that my favorite conference to attend is the HR Technology Conference. It’s my favorite because I geek out on HR and TA Tech and I’ll send three days on the expo floor demoing every product under the sun. That’s me. That’s not most HR pros. I’ve actually had HR […]

Pretty People Make the Best Employees

What do you think of, in regards to smarts, when I say: “Sexy Blond model type”? What about: “Strong Athletic Jock?” What about: “Scrawny nerdy band geek?” My guess is most people would answer: Dumb, Dumb, Smart – or something to that context. In HR we call this profiling and make no mistake, profiling is […]

Vets, We Love You, but We Still Aren’t Hiring You!

One of the most politically correct lies that employers spout off constantly is how desperate they are to hire Veterans! There’s a reason for this. In America, we love to honor our Vets! There’s nothing better than propping your brand up against that American flag with a soldier standing right next to it. The reality is, […]
