Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

a work in progress

Smart Machines/Robotics — Implications For HRM/HRTech — Where Do I Begin?

Hi, I’m Naomi, Your HR Tech SmartyPants Robot

Last week I was privileged to deliver a presentation to the top women execs at ADP about the future of HR and HR technology. Sounds straightforward enough, but it wasn’t. My presentation wrote itself, and it demanded that I title it: ” A Tale of Two [...]

InFullBloom’s 4th Anniversary — Where To From Here?

Celebrating Our 2010 Anniversary Over Dinner In The Languedoc-Roussillon, France

I launched my blog about 4 years ago, 11-8-2009. In my wildest dreams, I never expected to attract so many loyal readers nor did I realize how much I would enjoy blogging. I so wish new readers could start at the beginning because I’ve [...]

In Search Of HRM/HRMDS/HR Tech “Best” Practices: Istanbul To Vienna — Final Update

Istanbul Was Constantinople…

Are you able to speak fluently a language other than your native one? Two such additional languages? Three? Four? Five? If you’re an American, you’re mostly answering no.

How many of my American colleagues/followers are able to deliver a quality professional presentation in a language other than their native one? To [...]

In Search Of HRM/HRMDS/HR Tech “Best” Practices: Istanbul To Vienna — Update #2

Istanbul Was Constantinople…

In my first update from this amazing trip, I highlighted what we saw as outstanding performance by the concierge at The Ritz Carlton Istanbul in rescuing us when we got caught in the violent Taksim Park protests at the start of our vacation. But the logistics of that rescue were small [...]

In Search Of HRM/HRMDS/HR Tech “Best” Practices: Istanbul To Vienna — Update #1

Istanbul Was Constantinople…

From Our Hotel Window — Police Car Set Afire

There’s an old sailor’s expression that “anyone can man the helm when the seas are calm.” More than just in boating, this observation describes so many aspects of our work and personal lives. When everything is going along as planned, when [...]

InFullBloom’s 3rd Birthday — Here’s Where It All Started!

Happy Birthday InFullBloom

I launched my blog exactly 3 years ago, 11-8-2009. In my wildest dreams, I never expected to attract so many loyal readers — there are now 10K+ of you — nor did I realize how much I would enjoy blogging. So, with a huge shout-out to those of you who have [...]

Great Customer Service Is Simple!

Ted Goff Explains Customer Service

Nothing exposes you more viscerally to great or lousy customer service than what you experience on a long-planned and much-needed vacation. And when you’re paying the bill, with your precious free time and money, all your senses are on full alert for any delta between what you need or [...]

Reprise: Legacy HRMS/Legacy Marriage: Sunk Costs Versus Innovation

[I wrote this post in June, 2010, just when Al and Tipper Gore had announced their separation mid-2010, at a time when true SaaS InFullBloom was in its infancy. I was spending a ton of time with a wide range of vendors, some licensees of my "Starter Kit," working hard on the next generation [...]

Reprise — The Road From HRM To Business Results Is Littered With Misguided Metrics

[I published a post addressing this topic right after I launched my blog 11/9/2009, and I never expected to address this topic again. Surely by now, I would have thought that we'd have broad agreement on how to measure the impact of HRM on business outcomes. But I had few readers in the beginning, [...]

An Open Letter To HR Executives

There But For The Grace Of G-d Go Any One Of Us

Dear Sir/Madam,

We may not have met, but I’ve got your back. I’m on your side when it comes to using effective HRM practices and business rules to drive improved business outcomes in your organization. I know how hard it is [...]
