Viva Las Vegas

I was back in the office yesterday after attending the SHRM Annual Conference.  If you didn’t make the trip to Las Vegas this year, you missed a great experience.  The sessions were excellent, the vendors were great and the networking was incredible.  And I think that makes three great host cities in a row (New […]

What’s the Reason?

What can I say?  I have been spoiled.  For as long as I can remember, my SHRM membership has cost $160 per year.  However, we were recently notified that SHRM decided to raise that to $180 per year.

Now, in one breath, that’s still very low compared to many other organizations.  However, in another breath, the […]

Layoff Assistance

Harry Dahlstrom of Dalhstrom & Company wrote and published a guide which I found to be very informative.  It’s called “Surviving a Layoff – Your Guide to a Soft Landing and a Smooth Re-entry.”  So I decided to give Dahlstrom a free plug.

As an HR Professional, I will tell you that this book is an […]

Anyway, I started thinking about it.  This blog was kind of new when I wrote “Beating the Unemployment Maze – Part I” last August.  I’d encourage you to read it.

Don’t pay an attorney for […]

GINA

Have you heard of GINA?  If not, read up…

GINA is the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008.  The law went into effect on November 21, 2009.

Progressive Business Compliance posted this update today:

“On May 21, 2008, Former President George W. Bush signed the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) of 2008 into law.  GINA includes two distinct […]

How to Not Get Fired

MSN Careers featured a very interesting article today.  It was called “10 Things That Will Get You Fired.”

Kate Lorenz, CareerBuilder.com Editor, was the author.  You can view her blog here.

And you can view the list of 10 things here.  To be honest, I think I’ve fired somebody at least once for every single item on […]

We’re Back

But the good news is that we’re back with a vengeance and we’ll be updating this site more regularly moving forward.

Thank you for your […]
