Predicting 2009

Workday

As I sat down to think about the year to come, what’s interesting is that in spite of all the talk of global uncertainty there are some things about 2009 that seem pretty crystal clear. Cliche, perhaps, but please indulge me as we start the year. Let me know if you agree

What's in it for me?

Evil HR Lady

I work in a small creative firm and have an employee who is technically very good, but a few times now has expressed this "what's in it for me?" attitude when asked to consider contributing to something that is outside the realm of their regular job. And don't get me wrong, it's not like we regularly ask or expect people to put in overtime, or go above and beyond the call of duty, but from time to time every company needs its people to go that extra mile).

No Experience

Evil HR Lady

First I just wanted to say that I really enjoy reading your blog. I like your straight forward answers and sense of humor! My question to you is what should a new graduate like me do to get into the HR world? A little bit about me: I’ve graduated with my BA in psych in 07 and will receive my MBA in Sept 09. I’ve also gotten a HR Certificate. I’ve worked as a recruiter for about a year at a staffing agency and found that sale was not something I enjoy.

The Importance of Individualizing a Cover Letter

Evil HR Lady

I don't hire people; haven't hired people in years. But, I can still tell you that it's important to make sure what you send to someone who does hire people is tailored to that particular job. I was reminded of this when I received an e-mail from a public relations person who wanted me to promote a book. I know that this person did not tailor his e-mail to me at all for the following reasons: 1. He just starts out with the text. No salutation including my name.

Counter Offers

Evil HR Lady

I work in California and have recently been offered a similar position with a new company. I turned in my resignation letter today and my boss asked me what it would take to make me stay. I told him that if they increase my salary to match the new offer I would stay. After he talks with his boss and HR, he tells me that they will match the offer but they want to see a hard copy first. I'm wondering if this is violating my privacy rights to salary information.

Fraternization Policy

Evil HR Lady

Do you have anything on the above, or work rules regarding supervisors and people that report to them having a friendship outside of work. It is becoming disruptive to the workplace. I think anti-fraternization policies are really difficult to write and police. How do you get people to stop being friends?
