A Clear View of the Talent Lifecycle: Performance Management [Part 4]

ClearCompany HRM

July 2, 2014). “The employee performance appraisal is an underperforming, periodic business process that is loathed by both employees and managers alike. Historically linked to the annual salary review, performance appraisals often focus on HR-driven criteria for skills and competencies rather than business outcomes. The human resources management (HRM) technology solutions offered by leading vendors are typically built around this dysfunctional paradigm.” - Forrester Research, Inc.

Employees Need to Own Their Success

HR Bartender

During the HR Technology Conference , I was chatting with someone about job titles. She had heard the most interesting title – Vice President of Employee Success. It didn’t sit well with me then and the more I think about it…it still doesn’t. My apologies if this is your job title, but I do have to take exception to this one. When a person has the job title Vice President of Employee Success, that takes responsibility for achieving success away from: 1) The organization.

Technology plays a huge role in our personal and professional lives. That being said, because there is so much technology on the market, it can be a challenge to figure out what’s available.

The Innovation Series [Part 3] – How Companies Support Innovation

HR Bartender

In this third (and final) post on innovation, I wanted to share how companies view and support innovation. Because not every company views innovation in the same way. And that’s a good thing. On some level, if everyone viewed innovation the same way, it might get a bit boring. During part one of the series, we discussed whether innovation can be taught. And in part two, we outlined those skills necessary to be innovative.

Even Great Workplaces Make Difficult Decisions

HR Bartender

Great places to work are not perfect places to work. They face many of the same challenges that all companies face. They have to make the same difficult decisions as everyone else. It’s how they choose to handle those moments that makes them a best-in-class employer. I was reminded of this during this year’s Great Place to Work conference.

Embracing Organizational “Outsiders”

HR Bartender

During this year’s HR Technology Conference , I had the opportunity to hear Andrew McAfee from MIT talk about his book, “The Second Machine Age”. One point he made during the presentation was that organizations need to get better at hiring and engaging outsiders. Outsiders are people that are not familiar with the organization or the industry. Many people and companies take the view that outsiders cannot contribute because they don’t understand the uniqueness of the company.

Telecommuting Is Not a Profession

HR Bartender

I recently ran across an article talking about the “honest truths of the telecommuting profession.” The article went on to explain that individuals who telecommute need to be self-motivated, have excellent prioritization skills and exceptional communication skills. The reason that I’m not sharing this article with you is because telecommuting is not a profession. We don’t say, “I want to be a telecommuter when I grow up.” We don’t run job openings for “telecommuters”.

New Corporate Culture: Is There a Better Way?

The Most Common “I Quit” Motivators & What You Can Do About Them

ClearCompany HRM

There are many different types of turnover; some are welcome, and some aren’t. When a consistently poor performer with a bad attitude is replaced with an employee who excels, that’s the kind of turnover you want to see. However, that’s not always what happens. Very often, turnover can have some seriously negative effects on the organization. Financially: Every time a business replaces a salaried employee , it costs an average of 6-9 months’ salary. For a manager making $40K, that’s $20-$30,000.
