In Which I Peek Out Into the Blogosphere

The Bamboo Project Blog

You would be excused for thinking that I'd abandoned this blog. I haven't posted since October, a disturbing 7 months ago and an eternity in Internet time. It's not that I haven't been online. In fact, I've been blogging, Tweeting and using wikis, Facebook and other tools for most of my clients. But that's been the problem. My social media energies have been expended on behalf of other people and I've lost touch with social media for myself.

Diversity and good management

Working Girl

One of the reasons I''ve been a bit quiet lately is that I''m taking a talent management certification course at Cornell, which takes up some of the time I typically use for blogging. One of the topics in this course was diversity, which inspired this post. It turns out that companies that tap into the power of diversity - i.e., not just tokenism, which can undermine company performance, but actively including members of a diverse workforce - perform better.

The Art of Selecting Candidate Pre-Hire Assessments

Speaker: Melissa Dobbins, Founder & CEO, Career.Place

At the core of successful hiring practices is the fair and accurate evaluation of skills, abilities, knowledge and other criteria for a job. One powerful method to do this is through psychometric assessments.

Unfortunately, choosing the wrong assessments or using assessments in the wrong way can lead to bad choices, biases, and even discriminatory practices that violate compliance standards.
