Helping Employees Post-Election

November 9, 2016   

There was nothing normal about the 2016 election, and there will be nothing normal about its aftermath. While elections always bring out employees’ differences, this election has created divides deeper than perhaps any election in living memory. As a result, today, in the wake of the election’s surprising conclusion, many HR leaders are asking, “How […]

At-Risk Youth in the Talent Pool

November 5, 2016   

When most talent managers think about so-called “at-risk youth,” they are more likely to think about them in the context of a seasonal food or clothing drive or charity event than in the context of recruitment.

Now Trending: Rebel Employees

November 5, 2016   

You’ve tried transparency. You’ve tried culture. You’ve tried increasing engagement. You’ve even embraced the workplace design trend. What’s next? The Harvard Business Review recently published an article by Italian management expert, Francesca Gino, on the need to let employees rebel. That’s right–rebel.

Diversity in the Gig Economy

October 29, 2016   

In most workplaces, employees work for organizations directly. If they don’t follow the company’s rules, they are penalized. If they continue to defy company policies, they are fired.

The Higher Pay Payback

October 17, 2016   

It is widely acknowledged that service industry jobs have the highest churn rate of any job occupation. Why?

I’ve written about the ergonomics of sitting, standing, and everything in-between in my last two articles.

Sitting Differently

October 11, 2016   

My last article revealed that although the catch-phrase sitting is the new smoking is a bit exaggerated, it is true that sitting a lot over many years does have fairly serious negative consequences for your health.

The Sitting Versus Standing Debate

It was back in 2013 that the phrase sitting is the new smoking was coined. It was the shorthand catch-phrase that emerged from a Harvard Business Review article titled Sitting Is the Smoking of Our Generation by Nilofer Merchant.
