FREE TLNT WEBINAR: Thursday, June 18, 2015 at 2 pm Eastern/11 am Pacific
For some time now, HR has been called upon to become “more strategic” or to be a “strategic partner” for the business. But what does it actually mean and how on earth do you get there from here? If those are questions you’re familiar with, this webinar is a great place to start.
Transforming your role or your team to be more strategic takes time and effort, and of course the tactical day job doesn’t pause while you figure it out. This webinar will cover the components you’ll need to start building your strategic plan today, and how you can tackle the issue without letting the ball drop on the work that you have to get done right now.

Most job candidates will have many questions for an employer throughout the hiring process — including questions about the employment background check.
Do you have the answers?
Ultimately, knowing these answers benefits you, your company, and the candidates. Being transparent throughout the hiring process as a whole, and especially during the background screening process greatly affects your candidate experience. Read more…
Most organizations are striving to help their employees improve their health and well-being.
While intuitively, this makes sense – healthier employees are certainly happier and more productive – it’s also a sound strategy from a business perspective.
A recent study from Limeade and Quantum Workplace shows that when employees believe their employer cares about their health and well-being, they are: Read more…
There is a robust conversation in the talent arena about the “candidate experience,” led largely by Gerry Crispin and Elaine Orler, founders of the Talent Board and the Candidate Experience Awards (#CandE).
There are lots of opinions about whether ensuring that candidates for hire have a high quality experience is meaningful. Some think the juice isn’t worth the squeeze. But I think most believe treating candidates like consumers is smart business. Read more…
When asked by The New York Times to describe his impending retirement, David Letterman called it “a good solid punch to the head.”
After taping 6,000 episodes of “Late Night” over a 33-year career (three years more than his mentor, Johnny Carson), his analogy could not be more fitting – retirement is always a figurative punch to the head, both to the retiree and the organization losing them. Read more…

When employers try to play the role of doctor, well, that’s when problems ensue. Read more…
Data scientists are becoming important in HR technology.
I had thought the big thing about SimplyHired was that they were good at scouring the web for job openings and putting them in one place. However, to a large extent it competes on the quality of the search engine they offer job seekers.
The quality of that search depends on their data scientists figuring out the intent of someone’s search. Read more…
As technology continues to improve, the world seems to be getting smaller.
More and more businesses are becoming international, whether it’s about doing business with or employing folks in other countries. One of the practices that always jumps out to me when working with international companies is how they handle maternity leave.
One of my international partners recently had a baby girl. Had she lived in the U.S. she would have most likely been out a few weeks (maybe less) and chances are she would have used up all of her vacation time, and might have been lucky enough to have Short Term Disability Insurance to cover a percentage of her pay.
