The Happy-to-Grumpy Metric

Nobscot

There''s a nice article on metrics in last month''s (June 2007) CFO magazine. The article brought up my favorite financial ratio - the "Happy to Grumpy" ratio which Wells Fargo uses to measure actively engaged employees to the actively disengaged. Says Wells Fargo''s CFO Howard Atkins, We want to measure what drives our results, and that includes team-member engagement. That measure might not get

What Is The Best Pricing Model - Dynamic or Static?

Nobscot

An article in the summer MIT Sloan Management Review on dynamic pricing reminded me how much I dislike the concept of variable and negotiable pricing. Dynamic pricing is described by author Arvind Sahay as "where prices respond to supply and demand in real or near-real time." Sahay suggests that dynamic pricing provides a way to "reap higher profits" in every individual sale. That sounds well

The Best Human Resources Recruiter Movie Ever

Nobscot

I love when I come across HR in fiction books and movies. Last night, I saw the greatest movie for recruiters. It''s called The Method and is a Spanish film by director Marcelo Piñeyro. The title refers to an assessment method used by the corporate "Personnel Officer" called the Grönholm Method. Here''s an excerpt from a New York Times review:In this Spanish comedy, based on a play by Jordi

Keeping Up With the Joneses

In my last post, I said that I was a Baby Boomer. It turns out that I was wrong. I have just learned that I''m actually a Jones. A Jones?

Winning at Employee Retention

An interesting, albeit somewhat rambling, post from Marc Andreessen with his thoughts on employee turnover and retention.
