The working world has changed, and it will continue to do so as job functions evolve, new technologies are introduced and peaks and troughs in the economy each play their parts in changing the ever structure of the workforce. I’ve written before about the notion of tenure, permanency and lifetime employment being gone. So too has the traditional “reward package”. The…

SMAC Your Way Through 2016

Have you seen the movie Up in The Air (2009)? If not, put it on your list. If you did, you were probably a bit shocked by the virtual approach to firing people. I certainly was.

On shopping, innovation and design thinking

I never liked grocery shopping. It’ s a weekly occurrence where you take a cart, load it up with groceries and then stress out waiting for checkout, because all the other lines are moving so much faster. By the time you get home, all groceries  have gone through your hands 4 times: set them in your cart, transfer them to the  belt, bag…

What’s HR doing in Airports?

It’s October! For people in HR that means making the difficult decision to go to the HR Tech Conference in Las Vegas or to attend HR Tech World Congress in Paris. Once you’re on the road, take a good look around in the airports that you visit, because there’s a new kind of ads being unveiled. I travel frequently and…

What if… Tinder was your Appraisal tool?

I had the pleasure of presenting at SAP’s HR Innovation Day about the Future of Work. We had a lively panel discussion on the role of HR, the wisdom of abolishing performance ratings, diversity and 360-degree feedback, after which Mark Raben (@markraben) from SAP challenged me to blog about the use of Tinder as your HR system. So here goes…

What if… PowerBI was your HR Analytics tool?

If you’ve been following HR Trends, you know there’s a lot of focus on Analytics – not only to analyze what is happening to the workforce, but also to predict future consequences of strategy changes and run “what if” scenarios.
