Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

My 2014 And Beyond Wish List For HRM And HR Technology

[I posted my first such wish list 1/29/2013, and just writing it lifted my spirits. So, I thought to myself, why not do it again?]

Carnac In Bloom

If any of us really knew what was going to happen in 2014, wouldn’t we keep it to ourselves and invest accordingly? Furthermore, anyone worth […]

Naomi’s Next Chapter: “Life’s A Banquet, And Most Poor Suckers Are Starving”

Auntie Mame — My Heroine

Wrapping Up My Consulting Practice, Starting My Next Career Chapter

[For those of who got an early draft, please do read the final as I’ve updated it considerably based on your feedback and some late-breaking next chapter developments.]

One of my absolute favorite actresses of all time was […]

Reprise — An Open Letter To HR Executives

There But For The Grace Of G-d Go Us!

[The original version of this post was published here in January, 2012, but a call I did last night with a magazine editor reminded me that we must emphasize just how important it is to start any HR technology project with a well-grounded strategy. […]

My 2013 And Beyond Wish List For HRM And HR Technology

Never mind trying to make meaningful predictions, which are very hard to do safely when you’re under a zillion NDAs. Instead, I’m focusing my energies on what I want to happen. What would I make happen if my magic wand, bought years ago at FAO Schwarz, could be recharged? What would I ask him to […]

Anyone Can Man The Helm When The Seas Are Calm

If you’re an observer of effective HRM and IT, if you’re passionate about what happens at the intersection of these subject matter domains, then even on vacation you can’t help but notice innovation or simply good practices in either or both. Ron and I are on vacation, cruising with Regent Seven Seas onboard Mariner from […]

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 […]

Eight Characteristics Of Effective HRM And HRM Delivery Systems

In my last post, I told some all too typical business stories in which it was easy to recognize, in situ, really bad HRM policies and practices, HRM service delivery and HR technology use. Every manager has their own favorite such tales of woe, and my HR practitioner colleagues are awash in the fallout from […]

Clowns To The Left Of Us, Jokers To The Right: It’s Easy To Spot Ineffective HRM

Clowns To The Left Of Us, Jokers To The Right Of Us…

I’ve been collecting stories for years. Family stories, stories about friends, about trips Ron and I have made, about colleagues and others with whom I’ve crossed paths professionally, about the highlights and lowlights (and lowlives) in my personal and professional lives. Now, […]

Is HR Really A Pink-Collared Ghetto?

HR Is A Dominated By Women But Led By Men

I had planned to write this last September, so let’s just pretend that I did rather than wondering why I didn’t. It’s a critically important topic, and I hope that you’ll listen to the whole linked replay of the underlying discussion. We’re […]
