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.

When a person has the job title Vice President of Employee Success, that takes responsibility for achieving success away from: 1) The organization.

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.

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”.

Many people and companies take the view that outsiders cannot contribute because they don’t understand the uniqueness of the company.

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.

We don’t say, “I want to be a telecommuter when I grow up.” We don’t run job openings for “telecommuters”.
