Are You In a Rush to be Offended?

I was on a webinar recently and the speaker kept adding “she” and “he”every time they tried to say something like, “‘he’ would have to fill out that form” and then quickly go “or ‘she’ I know we have to be correct in HR”. In my mind, I was like okay, I get it, the […]

The One Big Problem with Being Pretty

Don’t you hate pretty people? We are addicted to ‘pretty’ in America. Let’s face it, most of the world is addicted to pretty. Pretty people get all the jobs. Pretty people get all the money. Pretty people get all the fame. Life as a pretty person is a heck a lot easier than being an […]

What is the right diversity mix of employees for your organization?

This is a question I think many executives and HR and TA leaders struggle with. SHRM hasn’t come out and given guidance. ATAP has not told us at what levels we should be at with our diversity mix. So, how do we come up with this answer? Seems like we should probably be roughly 50/50 […]

At 4% Unemployment, 2nd Chance Hires are Looking Very Attractive!

I’m a big fan of 2nd chance candidates. Candidates who were fired, terminated, let go, etc. for many various reasons, most of which come down to wrong job fit, the wrong personality fit with their boss, wrong skill fit, etc. I don’t have actual numbers, and I wouldn’t believe any study who told me a […]

You almost never go wrong when hiring pretty people!

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 […]
