Unbelievable. After four months of worries about a recession and a steady increase in interest rates, today the BLS reported that 528,000 jobs were created and the unemployment rate dropped to 3.5%. This is the lowest it has been since 1969, a year when I was in middle school.

It has been a decade since I’ve written about this, but the time is coming. Companies are starting to lay people off again. Not only Tesla, but hundreds of tech companies are announcing force reductions, so get ready for more. (You can now go to Layoffs.fyi and actually monitor this in real-time.)

Such a crazy, disruptive, surprising world. One day it’s a pandemic, then a war, then inflation, and now a mass shooting. As I watched George Carlin’s documentary this week I had to reflect: maybe he was right. Are we really a species that may not survive?
Well, let me make you feel a little better. ... Read more»
This week we launch our Irresistible Conference at the same time the stock market has plunged, interest and mortgage rates are rising, and economists are worried about a recession. It reminds me of our first Impact conference in 2008, which we launched the month the financial meltdown began.
Whether the economy goes down or ... Read more»
One of the most frustrating, tired, and archaic HR practices is performance management. Most of us have had horror stories with our “performance appraisals,” leading HR leaders to try to reinvent performance management all the time.
We went from top-down cascading goals in the early 2000s to Continuous Performance Management in 2010 to new discussions ... Read more»
What does the Amazon Labor Union win teach us about leadership, management, and HR? Of all the myriad challenges we’ve faced over the last few years, one trend is clear. Worker power is on the rise.

We’ve suffered through the pandemic, political instability, a global climate crisis, and now a war. Employees are burned out, stress levels are at all-time ... Read more»
Just released. New Research on Designing Jobs for the Future of Work.
Every day there’s another roadblock to growth. Inflation at nearly 8%, a war in Eastern Europe, more jobs than we have people, and employees leaving companies in droves.
Today we’re introducing one of the most exciting projects I’ve worked on in my career: the Global Workforce Intelligence (GWI) Project. This is a massive initiative we started over the last year to understand the new jobs roles, skills, and career pathways in every major industry around the world.
It’s a big project, and ... Read more»
After two years of the pandemic, it’s time to come together again. In a spirit of celebration and joy, I want to announce our new conference Irresistible, The Global Conference for HR Leaders and Their Teams. And you are going to want to come!
This week Microsoft made a significant move: moving Glint from LinkedIn into Microsoft Viva, building what Microsoft calls “Employee Feedback In The Flow Of Work.”
Glint is one of the leading providers of employee listening and action platforms, competing with the likes of Medallia, Qualtrics, Peakon (owned by Workday), CultureAmp, and Perceptyx. These companies ... Read more»
