The Future of Work
HR author and consultant Suzanne Benoit describes the rising trend of hate-based incidents and various employer response options to mitigate the polarizing impact of those incidents.
Future of Talent co-founder and author Eileen Clegg discusses “the wicked problem of the gender gap.” She talks about the key drivers of women’s collective stature and impact in society that are being discovered by reviewing patterns found in the past 250 years of history. Eileen explains how these patterns lead us to new hypotheses about how we can work together to create the evolution toward equal pay, equal influence, equal power on the planet with links to additional resources.
The popular belief that there is a significant shortage of qualified people is simply not true. That’s what Kevin argues in this post. He identifies and analyzes seven trends, debunking this erroneous belief and showing us how this false shortage was of our own doing.
