Playground Rules for the World of Work

My colleague, Jennifer Dole, got me started this week with an extremely thoughtful piece on one of my lightning rod favorite topics—youth sports. (If you haven’t read Bob Bigelow’s book, Just Let the Kids Play, you really should). Because Jennifer and I are business and software research nerds, things immediately veered into dimensions of relevance to the Future of Work, and we had quite a bit of fun in the comments. The part that’s stuck with me today is how naturally and effectively kids organize themselves to optimize their play. If you are, like me, “of a certain age”, (and didn’t grow up burdened by uniforms, playing between the lines, being whistled at by referees, and hectored by over-zealous parents), you know how it works: […]

Jurassic Park Revisited: When Will We Hit the Wall with Artificial Intelligence?

As I imagine, we got some traction on the latest blog post, “Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.” Thus, we have a part two to this discussion to open up the topic and let it breathe. Please join me and take a swig…. When you decide to buy a car and have a model and color picked out, the next thing you notice is that everyone seem to be driving that same model. They even seem to like the color you chose the best! This is called the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon; or more commonly, the frequency illusion. Sorry to say, no one is impressed with your choice of transportation. After I wrote that previous blog entry, I started to see so many articles that […]

Analyst Insight: Strategizing for High-Volume Hiring Success

What You Need to Know Many larger organizations with customer service and support roles are in the practice of hiring hundreds or even thousands of positions a year – even more for those with high-volume seasonal needs such as retail, warehouse and delivery services. Other industries also prone to high-volume hiring needs, such as healthcare and commercial air travel, are constantly fighting the competition for in-demand, highly specialized talent. But traditional hiring practices for high-volume hiring can add unnecessary steps to the application and screening processes for roles that may only have basic candidate prerequisites, while the sheer volume of applicants could clog candidate review and interview processes. In addition, a lengthy time-to-offer may mean missing out on candidates who are applying to multiple companies […]
