Strive for Higher Levels of Productivity

Reviewsnap

Employee productivity is one of the most important factors in overall profitability. When employees are highly productive, products and services are sold at a faster rate, overtime is reduced, staffing is kept lean and the customer is more satisfied. Productivity is often overlooked as a key variable in enhancing profitability. This web site includes a number of articles dealing with this issue.

Hire/Fire Authority

Evil HR Lady

Not sure if this one is quite your ball of wax, but I'm looking for a way to say, as a positive statement, that I have had the authority/reponsibility of firing as well as hiring on my resume. Is there a better term to use? Ahh, excellent question. See, now I'm much less crabby since I no longer have 10.5 pounds of baby pummeling my ribcage.) Having supervisory experience can mean a broad range of things and certainly not all supervisors have hire/fire authority.

Deja Vu at Legal IT Leadership Summit '08

Transparent Office

I'm blogging belatedly about a conference I spoke at last week, the Legal IT Leadership Summit (LITLS), sponsored by Interwoven. This was my second time for this conference, and was a great chance to reconnect with old friends like Andy McAfee and Neil Araujo , and meet some new ones like Gordon Vala-Webb , Ben Kiker , and Doug Cornelius, whose KM Space blog I've added to my list of favorites. The conference has a really nice atmosphere--serious yet lighthearted at the same time.

Human capital risk and reporting / Ernst & Young

Strategic HCM

My favourite presentation at last week's conference was given by Shaunagh Harvey Kelly and Mike Morley Fletcher from E&Y (the slide comes from a different presentation). I think risk tends to get forgotten by HR functions (perhaps not within those covered by SOX).

Wikipedia on PKM

Knowledge Musings

Bill Brantley has issued a Call to Action to the Personal Knowledge Management Community to fix up the Personal Knowledge Management entry on Wikipedia. He kindly mentions my name as one of those to mention in the reference list. I swear I did some creating / editing of the entry a while back. Even though I don't see my name in the history, I am pretty sure some of the basic structure is mine.

Think With Your Head, Not Your Heart

Reviewsnap

It is often difficult to discipline an employee that we like. Some employees have a way of making their way into a manager''s heart which can make the manager''s job difficult when it comes time to deal with problems surrounding that employee. A manager certainly must show compassion and concern for employees'' welfare and development. But there is a significant difference between compassion and concern and allowing problems to slide.

Lying Liars

Evil HR Lady

My question pertains to terminating an employee for lying on their application. Does it matter how the company found out they lied? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Your question intrigues me because I'm trying to figure out how you found out about a lie in such a way that you are afraid to present the information as a reason for termination. Keep in mind that private businesses aren't subject to rules of evidence that courts of law are.

All Respect to the Company Directory

Transparent Office

If ever there was an application that doesn't get the respect it deserves, it's the company directory. I've spent most of the last week talking with Socialtext customers and prospects about our new People and Dashboard features. The response has been overwhelmingly positive, which has been great to see. But in some ways it has been surprising. While some of the people I talk with are really engaged by "Web 2.0″ features of the offering (social networking, tagging, expert search, etc.),

Firing Procedures

Evil HR Lady

My organization handed me an administration manuel w/ no hiring and firing procedures. I have a small staff and have had to fire on three occasions. The procedural steps I do use were gained by asking other senior staff in hallways what they do in this organization. And I have followed those procedures. These procedures require a supervisor to be present at the point of firing as a witness. My department doesn't have a supervisor, so I invited the head of HR to attend the event.

I Haven't Complained About Recruiters Lately

Evil HR Lady

Here is my situation. I applied for a position, and was interviewed only to never be contacted again after the standard thank you notes were sent. I've found out that the company I interviewed with is e-mailing people who worked with applicants, but who weren't listed as references. You see, they sent an email to my current company in regards to another applicant. They sent it to someone who replaced this person, asking about his work, and why he left.

Managers' Self-Assessment Questionnaire

Reviewsnap

In assessing a manager''s ability to manage people, we believe it is important for a manager or supervisor to step back and look introspectively at their ability to direct the efforts of others as well as think about the environment they operate within. The following brief questionnaire is for your use in carrying out this type of self-assessment. Please respond to each question as honestly and objectively as possible in order to provide yourself with an accurate reflection of your situation.

Avoid Hair Trigger Hiring

Reviewsnap

When there are problems in a particular area of your business, make every attempt to determine the causes of the problem before hiring additional full-time permanent employees to deal with the problem. In other words, don''t automatically assume that the problem is too few people. For example, suppose a distribution company is constantly dealing with backlogs and delays in shipments. The first reaction is probably to hire more people to pick and bundle orders.
