Are you feeling more exhausted at the end of your workday? You’re not alone. Zoom fatigue is real.

Most companies overlook the idea that Human Resources should be a labor multiplier. If you spend $100,000 each month on payroll, HR’s job is to multiply the effectiveness of that labor. You do that by paying attention to how well recruiters recruit, managers manage, new hires comply with onboarding, how well performance management is working, even …
 
Do you think sheltering in place and working from home is tough? Imagine finding yourself in the world’s most extreme workplace, experiencing a plane crash, living in a constant blizzard with temperatures that hover about -35 degrees, and “seeing” nothing but darkness for 6 months...and that wasn’t the toughest part. Add to that being only the 2nd …
 
Forty-three percent of women drop out of the workforce after becoming a mother.

He questions how unemployment is tracked and more importantly that it misses the dark side of income inequality, social inequality, and ageism - exacerbated by under-employment, wa…
 
Hiring right is definitely not the “no-brainer” many HR and hiring managers think it is. They often allow conscious and unintended bias to cloud their judgment and predictable decision-making. The disappointing success rate of new hires (30 percent) over time confirms the poor choices many managers make. Our guest HireBrain CEO David Nason intends …
 
Success will not be measured the same way in the New Normal as it was just a few months ago. Hopefully that’s a good thing.

From interviews with over 60 C-Suite leaders and conversations …
 
Business is re-opening and life is anything but normal. The past has been decoupled from the present and future. HR practices and processes that used to work don’t work the same way. Even if they do work, getting things takes longer with social distancing and other new safety and security precautions. Many companies are headed for an epic fail when…
 
Chances are that between emails, Zoom, Slack, text, and even phone, you’ve sent an important message to your employees that was missed or ignored. The information spigot is open. More than 560 billion emails are sent each year. One hundred billion of them are sent to employees. Communication is flowing full throttle but a lot of it falls on deaf ea…
 
Brianna Shelko is a Millennial. But you’d never guess she belongs to the generation that’s been called Trophy Kids, spoiled brats, self-centered, digital addicts...and that’s only what we can print! Simply mentioning the “M” word brings groans and sighs. Her generation gets blamed for everything that’s wrong with ...well just about everything. Well…
 
A funny thing happened on the road to tomorrow. The SHIFT hit our plans! Now that the pandemic curve is flattening, our focus shifts to re-opening America (or the world for that matter.) What will “normal” look like? How long will it take to get “back-to-normal? For many, near-term survival is top-of-mind. Others are thinking forward, seeking to re…
 
Is there anyone on this planet that would question that navigating the pandemic has been disruptive, uncomfortable, stressful, and downright confusing? It’s no surprise then that we’re all chomping at the bit to reopen for business. Unfortunately, this road back-to-normal will be anything but usual. For starters, our leaders seem to be making up th…
 
Eventually, the COVID-19 crisis will pass. Management will reach for its playbook for getting back to normal. Unfortunately this time, there is no playbook. There is no modern-day parallel.

The Shift just got real! The Covid-19 pandemic turned the theoretical exponential curve into a very personal experience. The lines between sci-fi and reality blurred almost overnight.

To say the shift hit work plans this week would be a gross understatement. Thanks to the Covid-19 response, millions of people without warning began working from home - or not working at all. But despite the threat of massive layoffs hanging over the heads of millions of workers, many industries (healthcare, distribution, transportation) are hiring…
 
Our health and wellbeing are being severely tested. Personal stress levels are in overdrive, or as we like to say on Geeks Geezers and Googlization, the SHIFT is hitting a lot of plans. Just minutes before this episode, WHO declared Covid-19 a pandemic. The stock market fell into bear territory. More conferences and events were canceled and many sc…
 
There’s a lot of things your company can’t control and the coronavirus is just one of them. But how you respond should be at the tip of your tongue. According to our guest, crisis communication expert Bill Coletti, “Plan now like your company’s reputation depends on it because it does.” According to Coletti (via way of Seth Godin), your reputation …
 
A job candidate should walk away from the recruitment experience feeling good, even if rejected. But despite billions of dollars invested in HR technology and countless human hours spent working on improvement, many candidates walk away disappointed, resentful, and even angry. According to The Talent Boards 2019 Research report, candidate resentmen…
 
Do you get your best ideas standing in the shower or when you wake up a few minutes early? Or how about a “hunch” that something good or bad is going to happen but have no facts to back it up? They don’t happen by accident! It’s time to say “Yes” to intuition, the ability to see the unknown clearly, see things you missed that are literally standing…
 
Companies spend billions of dollars trying to get the best of their people. They coach, mentor, and train and yet talent shortages grow and employee engagement sinks. To find out what’s missing we went straight to Heartstyles experts Mara and Stephen Klemich. For nearly two decades they’ve been researching why people do what they do and too often d…
 
It just doesn’t get any wilder than this triple play of odd HR topics: phishing, Civil War, and job descriptions. But as it turns out, lessons learned from the Civil War can be applied to modern day workforce challenges such as cybersecurity, recruitment, and retention. To help make this connection between the battlefield of Gettysburg and HR, cybe…
 
Kobe, Shaq, Bono, Sting, Madonna, Cher are celebrities recognized by one name. A less famous but no less extraordinary individual was also recognized in the entrepreneurial and business community by one name - Clay. The father of disruptive innovation Clayton Christensen died last week so we decided to dedicate this week’s show to him. In 1997, Cla…
 
“People may be a company’s most valuable asset” but they don’t appear on a company’s balance sheet as an asset. They are, however, captured on the income statement as an expense. That is in sharp contrast to how HR values people. This contrast between quantifying the worth of people vs expressing appreciation couldn’t be more remarkable. Bridging t…
 
Three in 5 HR leaders believe if the HR function doesn’t modernize, it may become irrelevant, according to a recent KPMG survey. The word “modernize” seems like a safe word.

With the unemployment rate at historic lows, quit rates near all-times, and a stock market on fire, business leaders are anxious about the hiring outlook 2020. Will job creation continue?

Imagine a workplace where projects replace jobs, skills replace job titles, workers pitch their skills, and employers bid on them to create the best possible match. Despite significant investments in workforce planning, results have fallen short of expectations. Many organizations are living in #TalentPoverty. Skill gaps grow. Gig workers are repla…
 
The hiring process is broken. The reliability of the resume and interview is no better than flipping a coin. Can video screening fix it? For starters, a 1-minute video interview is worth 1.8 million words. Compare that to a resume containing 400 to 800 words, and an interview taking 45 minutes or more. When combined with AI, NLP (natural language p…
