    by Lindsey Pollak - March 7, 2018
    Last year I started answering common questions I hear from my consulting and speaking clients about Millennials in the workplace. Here I’ve collected the best of this advice into a handy “Guide to Managing Millennial Employees in 2018” that I hope is helpful for all generations. Question 1: Why are millennial employees such slackers? They don’t seem to want to work as hard as I did.” First...
  • What Diversity Really Means
    by Alexandra Levit - March 2, 2018
    Lighthouse Research Principal Analyst Ben Eubanks hammered home the importance of culturally embedded diversity and inclusion practices. According to Deloitte, employees that rated their employers highly for both diversity and inclusion were 80 percent more likely to say their organization was high performing. Corporate boards with three or more women have 50 percent higher return on equity, and 40 percent higher return on sal...
  • The Traps of Consensus-Style Leadership
    by Dr. Maynard Brusman - March 1, 2018
    Most employees favor consensus-run organizations, where a leader uses inclusion and feedback to manage democratically. A consensus-style leader is a refreshing alternative to the tyrant who issues stern orders. But democracy, taken to an extreme, creates numerous frustrations for direct reports. Leaders who advocate for consensus want everyone to feel valued and happy. These apparent benefits may be dwarfed by their inheren...
  • Alignment: A Critical Variable in Performance
    by Alexandra Levit - February 22, 2018
    ITM President and HR Bartender blogger Sharlyn Lauby recently discussed the current war for skilled talent. “It’s a candidate-driven market,” she said. “Finding the right people for the job is becoming increasingly difficult.

    by Alexandra Levit - February 15, 2018
    A reader said on a recent webinar: My company is scared of people analytics. What if the results show that something is really wrong? People analytics involves the practice of extracting information from existing data sets in order to determine patterns and predict future outcomes and trends.

  • Defining the Group with the Highest Selection Rate in Adverse Impact Analysis: Uniform Guidelines Methods May Mislead
    by Dan Kuang - February 14, 2018
    Adverse Impact (AI) analysis between two groups is simple and straightforward. Historically, Whites were considered the majority compared to all other groups, but today best practices dictate a closer look at all race groups. AI investigations become significantly more complex when there are two or more groups to analyze, such as the case with individual race (e.g., Asian, African-American, Hispanic, White). Specifically, wh...
  • Federal Tax Bill Offers a Nod to the #MeToo Movement
    by Connie Bertram, Emilie Adams - February 14, 2018
    On December 22, 2017, President Trump signed a sweeping tax bill (the 'Tax Cuts and Jobs Act' or 'Act') that overhauls much of the United States tax code and touches almost every section of the country's economy. Hidden within the more than 1,000 pages of the recently-passed GOP tax plan is a relatively small provision suddenly getting a lot of attention from employers and their counsel.

    by Bill Doyle - February 14, 2018
    In my initial article, published on November 17, 2017, I proposed an evaluation of OFCCP's recent regulatory and enforcement positions through the lenses of the fundamental and perennial question, 'What is Law?' I outlined controversial positions taken under a different Administration, and the new Administration's consideration of the regulatory and enforcement approaches to be implemented on its watch. I also noted...

    by Jenny Nelson - February 14, 2018
    Dan Newberry joined the Army right after high school, expecting to complete a lifelong military career. That plan ended abruptly in 2012. Honorably discharged due to a medical-related disability, Dan soon found himself adrift. 'I went from having a sense of responsibility, pride and direction in life, to nothing. It was incredibly difficult,' he recalled. Trained as a paratrooper of the Army's Airborne Infantry Uni...
