Lame-O-Rama

I realize that in this day and age, companies have to think of creative ways to recruit and attract talent to their organizations. That is, of course, while remaining legally compliant and not getting too unorthodox. But I have to tell you; the story that my friend told me about his interview at the Horseshoe […]

Web of Compliance

Has your company hit the big leagues yet? Have you purchased a Cyber Liability insurance policy?

Ten years ago, I doubt that many companies were worried about hackers breaking into their systems and stealing their information. But nowadays, it seems like an everyday occurrence. Add to this mix the complex issue of trying to be […]

You Know the Ones

Have you ever met the person working in HR who shouldn’t be? LOL, yes, those people do exist. And in my mind, they’re pretty easy to spot. Come on; you know the ones… They’re the ones who aren’t at the table, the ones who try to shove policy down your throat, the ones who get […]

Is Your Boss a Psychopath?

I’m sorry for my extended absence from this blog. I plan to be much more active on here moving forward.

I realize, in this economy, that a lot of people have lost their jobs through no fault of their own. And I have no problem with them […]

Error in Judgment

As an experienced and proven recruiter, I’ve often said that some of the best hires I’ve ever made have been people who I went out of my way to recruit, because they weren’t looking for a new job at the time. But that doesn’t mean that someone who directly applied for the position was more […]

HR Nightmare

If you ever travel to Oregon, you might want to stay at the Markum Inn. Then again, you might not… The owners of the Inn, Ward and Julie Frederick, have been served with in a federal harassment lawsuit by a former employee.

The former waitress, Jessica Webber, claims that the Wards “created a hostile workplace” […]

Age-Old Advice

For some reason, I found myself thinking back to my first day in the corporate world today. I was a young 22-year-old who knew nothing about HR, other than what I had read in a textbook. After a few minutes of getting settled at my desk, my boss asked to see me.

When I walked […]
