For reference, I wrote the post … Continue reading

HR or Resourceful Humans?

Employee Relations, Personnel, Human Resources, Human Capital Management? All names that will provoke or evoke… Perhaps we could change to the latest zeitgeist… do we have SoMeHR yet?

Attention Dilution

I’m well used to being reminded that as a man I can’t multi-task.  I’m not wholly in agreement but if you want to argue the toss then perhaps take a read of this and this.  I’ll also see if I can’t find a friendly neuroscientist to give a more up to date view on brain … Continue reading

Beecroft – Who is Under Performing?

OK there’s a lot being written about the Beecroft Report at the moment and I’ve hesitated to write anything at all. However, there’s an important aspect to this story which just doesn’t seem to be coming out loudly. Who is underperforming?  Current perspective  The Telegraph’s story yesterday included a headline saying :  “The majority of employers … Continue reading
