Apologies for the lack of posts here. People keep asking me to do stuff. So much for the long dossy summer I was planning. Anyway, I should draw your attention to the HR Carnival over at the HR Capitalist’s blog. For those … Continue reading
Blimey, is it that time of year again already? That’s come round quickly. Where have the last twelve months gone, eh? Update: This is funny. Well, it made me laugh anyway.
Ha ha! Another one of these. This time in the police force, of all places. Told ya, told ya! OK, I know it’s childish to jump up and down and say ‘I told you so’ but, remember folks, you read … Continue reading
Here’s another of those says-it-in-a-nutshell tags to go alongside Toxic Talent, Lemon Dropping and Marmite Employees. The Velvet Rut is a term I heard last week from my old mate Steve Preston who, being a career coach, meets quite a lot … Continue reading

Both reckon the tribunal judgement was flawed. Carl Gardner, a barrister and former government … Continue reading
It always sounds terribly smug to say ‘I told you so’ but I just can’t resist it. Last October I predicted that there would be conflicts between competing rights in the workplace. Already, we have seen trouble between different religions in the … Continue reading
At the risk of sounding as if I’m obsessed, I’m taking issue with another of Chris Dillow’s posts. Johann Hari describes the theory (fact) of evolution through natural selection as “the greatest insight of any human being so far.“ This sort of … Continue reading
