  • How Hallmark Cards Is Paving The Way For Diversity In Both Content And Culture
    by Kathy Caprino - November 18, 2016
    A vast majority of us have, at one time or another, purchased a greeting card to share message with loved ones, friends and colleagues. And spending just a few minutes in front of any display of cards, you’ll learn a great deal about the dominant culture we’re immersed in, as well as less dominant and minority cultures, all of which contribute to the beauty and richness of our world. As a global greeting card co...
  • Career Success: What's Age Got To Do With It?
    by Georgia Adamson - November 17, 2016
    Ageism is defined by the online Cambridge Dictionary as “unfair treatment of people because of their age.” By and large, of course, that refers to discrimination of “older” people (although there is a smaller sub-set related to young people). Ageism in the workplace rears its ugly head in all too many settings. As a result, career success can and often does suffer the impact of ageism and employer hirin...
  • An International HR Leader Publicly and Bravely Admits Her Bias Against Women Leaders
    by Kathy Caprino - November 16, 2016
    In my 18-year corporate career culminating in my role as a Vice President, I personally experienced every managerial and leadership behavior you can think of, from the most evolved and progressive, to the most archaic, backward, and damaging. I’ve also personally hired, collaborated with, and led a good number of both men and women to support my various employers’ work and visions. What I’ve witnessed firs...
  • Job Search Discrimination Against the Unemployed
    by Lisa Rangel - November 8, 2016
    I had a year-long Triber ask me what I thought of an article about discrimination towards the unemployed. He is a skilled, experienced tech person who has been unemployed for a year and curious as to what I thought about President Obama’s efforts to make the unemployed a protected class (which was successful in some capacity in some states in the US). My answer? I don’t pay attention to it and I think focu...
  • Are Your Performance Evaluations Unfair To Women?
    by Alexandra Levit - November 7, 2016
    I recently conducted some research on gender differences in the workplace and learned that the same behaviors that were praised in men were often criticized in women. In particular, women who were more assertive, or confident in expressing their views, were often perceived negatively. Assertive men, on the other hand, were viewed as strong and competent. A colleague pointed me in the direction of this Fortune piece by Kiera...
  • Not All Millennials Are Middle Class
    by Lindsey Pollak - November 4, 2016
    As you know if you’re a frequent reader, I often hear complaints that members of the millennial generation are entitled, lazy and narcissistic. The pervasive stereotype, often perpetuated by the media and late-night TV, is that young people today are all coddled trust fund kids with nothing better to do than whine while posting selfies to Instagram. While there are some millennials who conform to this stereotype, they...
  • Women Leaders Are Changing the World
    by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - October 28, 2016
    Women are paving the way for a new style of leadership that is confident, authentic, and highly effective. And yet, CNN Money reports that only 25 out of 500 companies in the S&P 500 have women CEO’s. Thankfully, the comprehensive picture looks more promising. The presence of women in C-Suite roles is certainly important but I am encouraged that more women are leading in other transformative ways. Leader is not just a...
  • Lead With The 'Why': How To Emphasize Purpose To Attact Millennials
    by Lindsey Pollak - October 20, 2016
    What is your company’s mission? If you said it was to sell widgets or provide advice, you’re not going to be in the best position to attract millennial employees. That’s because many millennials are inspired to work when they know their company has a purpose beyond profits. In fact, more than half of college-educated millennials cite a “sense of purpose,” as part of the reason they chose to wor...
  • The Hidden Reasons Why Gen-Xers Career Prospects Are Rising
    by Alexandra Levit - October 17, 2016
    I got into Northwestern University despite far-from-perfect SAT scores and missing the valedictorian spot by one grade. If I were a millennial, I would have had much longer odds. Born in 1976, I’m a late Generation X-er and have had less competition for everything pretty much all my life. You’ve heard of Generation X. Due to plummeting fertility rates, the media called our birth years the 'baby bust.' Gen X incl...
  • Should Work Be 'Fun'? The Concept Is More Retro Than You Think
    by Lindsey Pollak - October 14, 2016
    “Work isn’t supposed to be fun. It’s called ‘work’ for a reason!” Sound familiar? I’ve certainly heard comments like this from curmudgeonly colleagues over the years. I frequently hear people criticize millennials for wanting work to be “fun.” And the media likes to bombard us with millennial-bashing images of immature young people who expect a party every day, schemi...
