Nightmare on Benefits Street

Several months into my position as the first full-time HR manager for a start-up company in Seattle, I had completed redesigning the layout for the personnel folders. In the process, I noticed that a lot information pertaining to benefits seemed to be less than organized. At that point, I decided it would be prudent to develop a quick reference on all the employees so I could quickly access which benefits each person had.

It was a fun, easy idea at first, which quickly began to snowball. Only… Read More

Get a Life!

I work at a gas station that sells “made to order” food. Most people who call out of work will give some type of legitimate excuse as to why they can’t come in, they are sick, etc. One Friday night a 3rd shifter called to say he wasn’t coming in that night. His reason? “I have a life” and hung up… Read More

Douche-Nugget

Excerpt of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir:

“Today a woman came in to reapply for a job. She wrote that she’d quit last month but now wanted her job back. On “reason for leaving” she wrote: “That job sucked.

Chatbots in HR: AI for people, not robots [ Image Inside ]

Rereading Zachary Chertok’s article about artificial intelligence in human capital management reminded me of why we do what we do.
