My latest blog for SHRM on talent acquisition and older employees: When I used to eat meat, my favorite food was a hamburger (with French fries). I don’t think I would have been as enthusiastic if I had to order chopped cow. I had dinner with someone eating sushi. I asked them if they would enjoy […]

Please keep your pets inside during fireworks. Consider putting them in a room with shades closed, soft music, favorite food, etc. Note: even if […]

Every year, I write a blog for SHRM on Holocaust Remembrance.    This year, Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) is next week on May 2, 2019. This year, we are posting the blog early.

I am happy to share my latest blog post that discusses leadership, labels, and hierarchy. Thank you SHRM: Let’s take a journey back to the Flintstones in Bedrock.

How do we mitigate this very real risk?  My latest blog for Bloomberg: As a result of the “great awakening” in 2017 with regard to the persistent and pervasive nature of sexual harassment (and worse), responsible employers are doing even more […]

I am happy to share my latest post to The SHRM Blog. Marla: “Did you know that Sally is sleeping with Gregg?” Todd: “I heard that. How long has this been going on?” Marla: “Not sure. Jeff?” Jeff: “I have no idea but I do know they are a couple.” Karen: “No kidding. Have you […]

I am pleased to share my latest post to The SHRM Blog. We are approaching Valentine’s Day and the risks that go with it. Of course, everyone should know that it is inappropriate to send a card with a sexual or suggestive message.  This is particularly problematic where there is a power disparity, but it […]

I am pleased to share my latest post to The SHRM Blog. For many years, around the holiday season, I have written cautionary tales from “The Jewish Guy Who Wear A Chai.”  Chai is the number 18 in Hebrew and means life. This year, I was reluctant to use the title.  For the first time in a […]

Important reminder that, effective today, October 15, 2018, under the New York City Human Rights Law (NYCHRL), employers must engage in a “cooperative dialogue” with applicants or employees in New York City with regard to reasonable accommodations in four (4) circumstances. More specifically, […]
