#Top5HRReads (& listens to) for November 20

I'm back! Last week, at our all staff HR meeting, the CHRO shared this video about Inclusion, Inclusion Starts with I, from Accenture. I have to admit I was skeptical. And I also have to admit, I was moved. We are all biased and we forget the many many ways bias can show up, especially …

#HRSocialHour #TwitterChat: Bad Bosses 2

We've all had them. Maybe, you've even been one. Maybe, like me, you've been investigated for being one [reason 57 why I don't want to supervise anyone]. We're going to be a little more serious this time around, but we've all learned SOMETHING from our time working as one or, BE HONEST, being one. Set …

Recruiter Games: a Procurious Post

Photo of character Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games movie If you have ever played a game with a small child, you know it can be frustrating because they seem to change the rules halfway through.

When my girls were in preschool, their standard answer to "what do you want to be when you grow up" was "Bigger!" Their answers changed a bit as they grew: butterfly entomologist, zoologist, art teacher, life guard, architect, something in film, hair stylist, YouTube star, Spider-man. All good choices. I'm sure you have your own …
