In yesterday’s blog post, I asked you whether your employees trust your human resources department. This poll was anonymous. I only logged most of the IP addresses. Just kidding. I logged them all. Just kidding.

Ok, enough kidding around. You want to know how messed up everyone else’s workplace is. So, let’s pull that band-aid right off.

Oops, wrong one. Continue reading

In case you missed it, last Friday I slipped into the vortex to detail the amazing story of the 76ers’ president of basketball operations and general manager, Bryan Colangelo, and five Twitter burner accounts with which he may be associated. Several of these accounts were used to talk smack about 76ers players, other league Executives, leak medical information, and more!

One theory that was gaining traction was that a few of the accounts were possibly linked to Colangelo’s wife!

That’s original. Except, maybe not. Continue reading

Spoiler alert: A lot.

Yep, last Thursday, a California jury awarded $7.97 million to a woman who claimed that he employer fired her in retaliation for claiming workers’ compensation benefits.

You’ve heard of the blockchain, right?

But, if I asked you to explain it to me, half you would say, “Yeah, dude. Bitcoin.” The other half, well, I’m thinking I’d get something like this…

Don’t worry.

In this post, I’m going to turn you into a blockchain expert. Or, at least expert enough to hold a blockchain conversation during a 30-second elevator ride.

Heck, I’ll even share some HR applications to make you the envy of all your friends at the next local SHRM Chapter meeting. Continue reading

On February 5, 2018, the Detroit Lions named former New England Patriots Defensive Coordinator Matt Patricia as the team’s new Head Coach.

Maybe, Lions ownership missed Super Bowl LII and the 41 points that the Philadelphia Eagles dropped on Mr. Patricia’s garbage Patriots defense.

Oh, sorry.

The Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl LII victory over the New England Patriots, which gave the Eagles one more Super Bowl win (1) than the Dallas Cowboys have total playoff wins in the last 20 years (0), is not the point of this post.

The point is that, on Wednesday, Robert Snell of the Detroit News reported (here) that Mr. Patricia was indicted for aggravated sexual assault in 1996, something missed in the Lions background check.

And the real question is… Continue reading
