Three factors marginalising the historical role of the CISO by Jean-Christophe Gaillard

The last SASIG meeting in London on 8th May 2018 examined the role and career of the CISO. It is hard to walk out of an event like this one not feeling that a number of things are seriously going round in circle in the security industry.

Grow your business: What would your future postcard say? by Kirsty Brooks

We are seeing an exciting trend in recent months as more client organisations structure their people vision alongside innovative and practical deployment plans that are very specifically matched to their business goals. 

Over recent years, businesses have been focused on cost utilisation and spend, understandably given the economic environment we've been in. 

Uber or Black Cab… by Kelly Swingler

Uber or Black Cab – Which is Your HR Function?

I’ve used Uber a few times, but have to say I’ve been a Black Cab kind of girl for years and there is something familiar about them that makes me stick with them.

Yesterday though I started to think differently.  My last few trips to London have involved a Cab ride, none of the drivers have known where to go and the cost, compared to what an Uber would have been almost double the cost and the card machines haven’t been working so cash has been paid, one driver even dropping me at a cash machine.

Avoiding People Analytics Project Failure by Max Blumberg

Making sense of people data is a struggle for many HR professionals. People analytics is only effective when data collection is focused on achieving a particular management objective - such as improving talent management processes, such as recruitment or retention, or to demonstrate HR's contribution to the value/ROI of these processes. Despite this core concept of people analytics, many companies simply analyse the data nearest to hand – with the results being anything but insightful.

GDPR’s Unintentional Role in Improving Candidate Experience by Ankita Poddar

Once upon a time, ATS systems stored millions of stale resumes of any candidate that happened to cross its path. When new roles opened and well-meaning human beings attempted to apply or refer, these systems would mostly say, “Resume already exists in database.” If one were lucky, the ATS would say, “Hey! New resume. Let me replace the old one” and if luck had truly run out, it would save two versions leaving the poor recruiter confounded. Then suddenly, GDPR happened.

Bend the 'Golden Rule' to Improve Workplace Relationships by Shea Heaver

Growing up we are taught (and throughout life we observe) what is frequently referred to as the Golden Rule. For many of us it started as (and maybe still is) the phrase "do unto others as you would have them do unto you”, and while the exact wording is flexible the central message is common to all.

In principle, the concept champions a two-way, reciprocal and mutual relationship between two or more parties.

This indeed is a very admirable idea, but it has a fundamental flaw that is amplified when brought into the workplace.
