HR the Disrupter

first_imgThroughout its history, HR has steadily evolved, and now the pace of change is escalating at speeds never seen before. Our modest personnel administration origins have matured into directing the very future of work, and our success is now defined entirely by results, not process. A constant theme of the HR profession has been the transformation of our work. It used to happen every decade or two, but now it is continuous.HR is now poised to be the newest disrupter of business, driving bottom-line benefits through new approaches to finding and keeping the best people.How does disruption differ from innovation? All disruptors are innovators, but disruption goes further. It challenges everything we think we know and everything we do. To be innovative, we think outside the box, but to be disruptive, we may need to lose the box altogether.In our cover story of this month’s issue of HR Magazine, talent and tech guru Josh Bersin of Bersin by Deloitte writes about nine technology trends that are upending old processes and boosting HR performance into high gear—from advanced people analytics tools to the use of artificial intelligence for talent development. Now a $2 billion-a-year business, HR technology is one tool we have to disrupt business.However, disruption doesn’t always require technology. It can be as simple as rethinking traditional workplace paradigms, such as the 9-to-5 norm.Workforce diversity and inclusion programs can also be disruptive. We know that companies with gender and ethnic diversity outperform others by up to 35 percent. But today it takes more than asking questions and eyeing candidates to build a diverse workforce. We should all be exploring next-generation approaches to inclusive, equitable talent management.  To succeed in the 21st century workplace, companies must do more than adapt to the new ways people want to work. They need to create fresh approaches that emphasize innovation, competitiveness and fairness. HR must be ready to innovate—and often disrupt—with solutions that transform today’s businesses and people. “HR as Disrupter” may well be the next evolution of our profession.last_img read more

Congress, It’s Time to Stop Kicking the “Cadillac Tax Can” Down the Road…

first_imgA long overdue action may finally be taken by the U.S. Congress as H.R.748 (Middle Class Health Benefits Tax Repeal Act of 2019) is scheduled to be brought up for a House vote to repeal what is known as the “Cadillac Tax.”The Cadillac Tax is a provision of the Affordable Care Act which, starting in 2022, would impose a 40 percent excise tax on employer-sponsored health benefits whose value exceeds legally specified thresholds. If implemented, the burden of the Cadillac Tax would likely be passed on to workers through higher deductibles, costs, and restricted benefits. Congress has delayed actual implementation of the Cadillac Tax several times however, many groups including insurance companies, labor unions, employers, and professional associations including SHRM have long lobbied for a permanent solution by repealing rather than delaying implementation of the Cadillac Tax.With bi-partisan support of the repeal bill that includes over 360 co-sponsors, it appears that this may finally be a prime opportunity for the bill to pass the House to then head to the Senate for consideration. Although passage in the House seems likely, it is still important for SHRM Advocacy Team members to reach out to their individual House members to ask for their support in voting for repeal of the Cadillac Tax. Passage of this repeal bill would put this issue to rest and allow insurers and employers to move forward with future benefit planning without having to plan and budget for an anticipated tax increase.I encourage my fellow SHRM Advocacy Team members and other interested human resources professionals, not only in my state of Wisconsin, but across the country to contact their representative in Congress to voice their support and ask their representative to co-sponsor and/or vote in favor of H.R.748 to finally repeal the Cadillac Tax. Personally, after monitoring this tax since the first delay went into effect in December of 2015, I am happy to reach out and thank my congressman, Representative Bryan Steil for his co-sponsorship and ask him to vote “yes” to help the employers and employees in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District as well as across the U.S. Visit the SHRM Policy Action Center to find your elected official.

Don’t Miss: Sachin’s #SelfieWithDaughter Sara

first_imgBatting legend Sachin Tendulkar has posted a selfie with daughter Sara on Facebook as part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s #SelfieWithDaughter initiative. Sachin who is holidaying with his family in Europe posted the picture which has been liked by more than 60,000 people. The PM, during his radio show, Maan Ki Baat (On My Mind) on June 28, launched the hashtag #SelfieWithDaughter, to draw attention to India’s plummeting sex ratio.But the scenario for the future is grim because India’s declining child sex-ratio indicates that girls are increasingly being aborted, killed or otherwise dying.The overall sex ratio in 1921 was 955 women per 1,000 men, declining to 946 in 1951 and to 943 today. The child sex-ratio was 983 girls per 1,000 boys in 1951, declining to 918 in 2011, the lowest in the seven decades since it was counted.The rate of decline has worsened in the years during which the overall sex ratio began to improve. This corresponds to the decades following 1981, offering evidence of sex-determination tests, selective abortion and female infanticide.Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, chef Sanjeev Kapoor, Smriti Irani and many more shared selfies with their daughters on Twitter.last_img read more

Womens soccer team to host NCAA Tournament games

After finishing the regular season as the second-ranked team in the Big Ten, the Ohio State women’s soccer team will play host to the first two rounds of the NCAA tournament.The Buckeyes will play their first-round game Friday at 7:30 p.m. against Oregon State and a potential second-round game against either Florida or Illinois State. Both games will be played in OSU’s Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.Playing at home is something coach Lori Walker cherishes.“We love being at home,” Walker said. “We’re in the Jesse and we’re thrilled about that. I think that’s a wonderful opportunity for us, to be here in front of our home fans.”The Buckeyes are hoping to shake off the disappointment of a loss in their regular season finale. The 1-0 defeat at the hands of Michigan State kept OSU from winning the program’s first ever regular-season conference title. “I was disappointed for our team, but I was in no way disappointed in our team,” Walker said. “I think that’s behind us, and all we’re worried about now is Oregon State.”Oregon State finished the regular season as the Pac-Ten’s sixth-ranked team, with an overall record of 12-7-1. “They’ve had success in a very difficult conference so we’re going to do our homework and find a way to tactically adjust as we need to,” Walker said. “But really this part of the year is about us playing well, doing the things that we do well and finding a way to continue to score goals.” read more

Vinicius proves Lopetegui right after poor Castilla debut

first_imgAfter practically confirming that he wasn’t ready for the major squad, Julen Lopetegui saw how Vinicius failed on his debut playing for Real Madrid Castilla.When Florentino Perez told Julen Lopetegui that he would bring Vinicius to play for the Real Madrid first team from Flamengo, the Spanish manager had a reaction that the president wasn’t expecting. For some reason, the numerous studies that Los Blancos’ president has received about Vinicius Junior during his time at Flamengo were overwhelmingly positive, but the reality is a lot less encouraging for any Real Madrid fan who actually dives into the player’s short-lived history with the club from Rio de Janeiro. It appears that Florentino Perez’s team didn’t do their player analysis right and they may have bought a player who is still underdeveloped for a steep €45 million, and this may have just been because he is very good at dribbling. But when you look at his other stats, a huge red light turns on because this kid lacks a lot of experience for that price tag. Maybe Florentino Perez has been ducked by Flamengo, but let us explain in further detail.Vinicius Jr. starts for Real Madrid Castilla as they face Las Palmas “B” and at 45 million euro becomes the most expensive player to feature in the Spanish 3rd tier (2B) https://t.co/46AlgEjuvw pic.twitter.com/znFVRFqIC3— AS English (@English_AS) August 26, 2018Vinicius’ numbers with Flamengo.When Florentino Perez’s team approached Flamengo to buy Vinicius, the Brazilian player has just begun his development process as his debut came in 2017 without having signed a contract and playing all his first matches as a substitute. In 2018, the youngster started getting minutes for Flamengo in the lower flight Carioca Tournament where he developed a bit more until he started playing in Brazilian Serie A. During his time at the top of the game in his country, Vinicius played a total of 80% of all matches for Flamengo since he started playing until his very last match before he left for Spain. The player’s performance at Copa Libertadores has also been below average, there have been many news outlets that even wrote about Vinicius having incredible performances in the most high-level tournament from the American continent but the reality is a lot less spectacular. At the Libertadores playing for Flamengo, the kid only played 5 games from which he started in 4 and only scored two goals that he got in a single game. Not so spectacular after all.Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.Actually, the only tournament in which Vinicius Junior has been a top player was South American under 17 tournament where he scored 8 goals, gave several assists and was named as the best player of the competition. But this can hardly be considered a good section of any player’s resume because he performed well in a single UNDER 17 tournament, this means that Florentino Perez paid €45 million for a player who is not fully developed yet and we may not even get to see him perform at a level that can be worthy of Real Madrid standards. So when questioned lat Saturday about the young star, Julen Lopetegui was as blunt and brutally honest as he could be by saying the following about Vinicius:”He’s a player in the squad who trains with us every day, when he comes with us he can play and when he doesn’t, he can play with Castilla. He’s just arrived and needs time to adjust, training with players of the highest level who will help him to improve.”Poor debut for Real Madrid Castilla.So after all this context about this overpriced player who Florentino bought with a lack of further study and development, Vinicius finally got handed an official debut for Real Madrid Castilla against Las Palmas and his performance was not even close to what the expectation was of his skills. But Lopetegui must be smiling in the back because Florentino can’t say he wasn’t warned, as the young player failed a lot of passes and just wasn’t even close to the level that is usually expected from a player who costs that much money. So the sooner the club president realizes that Vinicius is far from being close to Neymar’s level, the easier it will be for him to accept that he made a terrible mistake and maybe it’s a good idea to send him on a loan to another club that can help him finish his development process. Because we can’t say that Vinicius Junior is not a talented player, he totally is but he is just not ready to play for Real Madrid and he may take a while to get there.A luz que me guia é bem mais forte que os olhos que me cercam. ⚽️?? pic.twitter.com/YmVgDJ0DQ3— Vinicius Jr (@vini11Oficial) August 23, 2018How long do you think it will take Vinicius to reach his true potential as a professional player in Europe?
