Domo Recruiting Billboard: Offensive? or Just (Really) Bad Taste?

Mon, 07 Jan 2013 15:54:10 +0000

Odd billboards from Domo’s chief, Josh [...]

More Flexibility in the Workforce: A Catalyst for Growth?

Wed, 12 Dec 2012 19:18:28 +0000

Sallie Krawcheck poses an interesting question on workplace flexibility in LinkedIn’s 50 Big Ideas for 2013: The US economic recovery is tepid at best, with growth in short supply. At the same time, progress on gender diversity has stalled, with the number of women in senior roles plateauing. Solving the second challenge can help the [...]

The Bad ‘Employment Brand’ Video from Vimeo (That Actually Tells the Truth)

Wed, 22 Aug 2012 16:48:35 +0000

Vimeo, the video sharing company, posted (like lots of companies) a video promoting what it’s like to work there. But, unlike most company “work here” videos, this one is full of odd, awkward moments and is likely pretty realistic. It’s somewhat like watching The Office, when that awkward moment happens and normal tv shows would [...]

Companies Asking for SocialNetworking Passwords Should be Outed Online

Tue, 20 Mar 2012 20:43:27 +0000

I say, if a company wants social media passwords as a pre-requisite to employment, people should be informed about it Social media is a two-edged sword, and companies that think they can hide behind their corporate firewalls and bureaucratic red-tape have much to learn. Maybe, if their entire PR department is managing a reputation crisis over perceived privacy violations, they won't be so keen on seeing what WE are saying about them?

With the way very large companies seem to be posting record profits these days (Uhhh, thank you… stimulus package??), you’d think people would be flocking to these ginormous corporations as a safe-haven in times of economic turmoil.  Yet (while that may be the case) the fact remains that being BIG doesn’t (of course) mean BETTER [...]
