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

Istanbul Was Constantinople…

Ron and I will be traveling from 5/28/2013 through 6/13/2013 from Istanbul to Vienna (note: the route on the map shows the opposite direction), soaking up “best” practices in HRM, the HRM delivery system and HR technology every step of the way. I’ll be doing some tweeting from “the road,” […]

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 […]

Prepping For A Week In Silicon Valley

San Francisco Bay Area — #EnSW Heaven

I try to spend a week every year in Silicon Valley, meeting with vendors, catching up with colleagues, soaking up the atmosphere and drinking the very special water. On this year’s agenda are Cornerstone OnDemand (with a huge thanks for coming to the Valley), SAP and […]

Monaco To Paris With Twitterscope Up

Provence, Toujours Provence

You’ll have noticed that my last post went up on May 3rd, shortly after we left for two weeks vacation. Before I return to our regularly scheduled programming, to blogs on more or less professional topics, I wanted to say a few words about this vacation and its impact on my […]

Eagles, Cattle, And Gators — Welcome To HQ

Cracker Cow Customer Service

Mr. Eagle On His Lakeside Perch

Many corporate, non-profit and public sector organization Web sites feature wonderful pictures of their offices/factories/mines/etc to suggest the substance and durable nature of their activities. Even in this era of virtual everything, there remains something comforting about knowing that our suppliers, customers, partners […]

Change Management: M/V SmartyPant’s First “Sail”

M/V SmartyPants at St. Charles Yacht Club, Fort Myers

When I wrote this post last November about our last sail on Mar-Lin nights, our new boat didn’t have a name, I had never seen her nor handled her controls (think user experience!). Our new boat was mostly represented by a growing (ultimately huge) […]

Another Op’nin, Another Show: 2010/2011 At The Florida Rep

Orchids In Bloom At HQ

It’s autumn again in Fort Myers, a really wonderful time of the year. Daytime temperatures are back in the 80’s with the nights slipping into the low 60’s. The humidity has moderated, orchids are blooming like mad, and it’s time to replace the summer potted flowers with […]

“Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose” — Let’s Change That In Chicago

The more things change, the more they remain the same doesn’t sound as romantic as the French, but it’s a reasonable translation. So it is in many aspects of life, and so it is especially in my little corner of the professional world, at that intersection of HRM and IT where I’ve been camped out […]

In Search Of HRM/HRMDS/HR Tech “Best” Practices: France/Spain

The Glory Of Carcassone At Night

Ron and I will be traveling again from 6/25 through 7/17 (life is short!) mostly in the Languedoc and Dordogne in France and on the Med coast of Spain between Valencia and Barcelona. We’ll be soaking up “best” practices in HRM, the HRM delivery system […]

In Search Of HRM/HRMDS/HR Tech “Best” Practices: Istanbul To Venice — Field Report Part II

Regent Seven Seas Mariner Underway

The first part of this post was a personal report on our recent travels. In this second part, I want to share what I learned about our industry’s “best” practices along the way. More specifically, I want to describe some of the HRM practices that Regent Seven Seas […]
