Talent management and ISO 9001:2008 Clause 8

Saba

Do you think HR has nothing to do with ISO 9001:2008? Using a talent management system can help you meet the requirements and certifications set out in ISO 9001:2008, improve your company’s operations, align individual and organizational goals, and boost customer satisfaction

NY-Toronto Law Firm KM Summit 2008 in Boston

Knowledge Musings

Doug Cornelius asked me to participate in the NY-Toronto Law Firm KM Summit 2008, which for some reason was held in Boston this year. This is a group of lawyers (primarily) who are very interested in knowledge management in the legal profession. There are a number of my friends from KM circles associated with this group, and it was great to reconnect once again. Unfortunately, I could only stay for the morning. Does Enterprise 2.0 = Knowledge Management 2.0?

15 tips for successful knowledge sharing

HR Roles

Evil HR Lady

First I must say how much I’ve enjoyed your blog – it helped me a lot when I applied for a new job last year. Now (for only the second time in my career) I work for a company that is large enough to actually have an HR department! My question is, I see references to roles such as ‘HR Generalist’ and ‘HR Business Partner’, and I’m sure there are more I haven’t found yet. Could you please give a quick summary of the various HR roles and the differences? Oh the desire for Snark is overwhelming me.

A Friendly Warning from the Grim Reaper

Evil HR Lady

I may have hinted a few times that I know a thing or two about layoffs. This would be true. In fact, if you see me coming, it's best to start packing up your things right now because it will save us all hassle later on. This, actually, is not true. Your manager would be terminating you, not me, so feel free to chat with me and share your Christmas candy.) So, here's the deal. You may get laid off. Yes, I know, you are a stellar performer and your boss loves you and blah, blah, blah. Humor me.

Work-in-Progress Culture

Transparent Office

Much has been made in the last 5 years about the democratization of publishing and how the line between publishers and consumers of content is getting blurred. It's an attractive way to describe the trend. Hey, who doesn't like more democracy?) But I think it misdescribes what's really happening. The real paradigm shift in Web 2.0, I believe, is the blurring the line between publication and collaboration. In the old days, people collaborated in private.

Slow Hiring

Evil HR Lady

I am applying for an internship. I understand that the job is low priority to them, as it is indeed an internship, not full-time. But the hiring process is very slow. I believe I had a successful phone interview with a member of their HR, then was told that HR was awaiting a response from upper management regarding the position. The wait has now been a month long. I have been in contact with my interviewer and she welcomes me to call back and check on my status, but the status is unchanging.
