  • Bringing People Back TO The Office – Are We Better At Home Or ‘At Work’?

    It’s novel (at least it was) – working from home.  When you joined your employer, you asked about flexibility – hoping that work from home was an option at least some of the time.  Sick child?  Work from home.  Winter storm?  Work from...

  • Technology – The Positive Impact Today

    I remember when having a computer was still new (no age comments please).  In addition, there were actually ‘machines’ what were really just word processors.  The first ‘Word Processor’ I worked on was the size of a desk – an entire desk.  The...

    People ask me all the time, what separates an average candidate from an exceptional candidate? For people in transition, I am commonly asked about factors relating to job search success. I am not sure I fully have an answer, but I found an article that offered a...

  • The way toward employee engagement can be so simple!

    Harvey Mackay, the well known author and writer, has a very simple title on his weekly column (November 21, 2010). It merely says, "Say thanks to your employees." Such simple words, but so rarely followed! Mr. Mackay quotes Don MacPherson, President and...

  • 4 Short Articles; 1 Comprehensive Story

    I read HR Magazine in short bursts - usually when I am 5+ minutes early for an appointment. It takes a month to read the monthly publication at this rate. In today's world, we rarely sit down and read any publication cover to cover. Personally, I like short articles that...
