Our organizational models are not working; as HR professionals we should not be surprised—merely prepared. What does organizational change have to do with effective recruitment and retention? Everything.

We are hearing constantly about our current/upcoming labour shortage, and even though we are not yet experiencing the large retirement wave as initially expected, the challenges facing quality, relevant recruitment practices and employee retention issues are greater than ever.

Recruiting Tomorrow Today

A perfect example of this is Northern BC, a region which is, and will be, a key revenue generator for this province over the next five years and beyond. Prince George alone will need 20, 000 people added to their workforce within the next two years to keep up with employer demand.

The next two years is not long-term planning—it’s now.

Another example is our resource sector. “Even if we employ all the people who are employable in Canada we’re still going to be very short (on) workers”, commented David Bazowski, chair, BC Task Force: Mineral Exploration, Mining, Stone, Sand & Gravel in his recent report delivered to the mining industry in BC.

How are you voting in massachusetts

Folks, here is how i'm voting
1. end the state income tax. i'll vote to end it. i'm afraid the town is going to raise taxes to make up for the deficit and there's less resources to fight local towns than on state level.
2. decriminalization of pot. there's a lot of scare tactics on how pots is dangerous and such. while not a user myself, i have to try hard and be fair. i'll vote to ... whom he has nothing in common.
One of the crowd is so moved by this testimony as to yell: "I love you, Tucker!" "I love you too," he shoots back, "And I mean that in a nonerotic, but powerful way." I can't help but think that this sort of interaction is good for the personal growth of the Paultards, as Tucker will introduce them to something they've likely never experienced before: irony.


Your post about your observations of the filene's store manager in nashua, new hampshire concerned me enough to write their human resources department. not because it seemed to be an unusual circumstance, but because it happens far too often.
i spoke with the director of human resources this morning who apologized and heartily agreed that the interaction you witnessed was highly inappropri.... and the director assured me that she did not consider it an excuse.
all managers are going to be informed that this incident took place and the concern that it has caused. this is not an incident that they want repeated for any of their customers regardless of age, race or the emotional state of their employees.
i know it doesn't change what happened, but i just wanted you to know.

Short answer

An article in Rolling Stone (October 20, 1994) by Adam Miller called J. Philippe Rushton a 'professor of hate,' someone who 'takes money from an organization with a terrible past' (the Pioneer Fund, a foundation said to have an orientation toward eugenics). He is accused of being 'obsessed with intelligence and genetics' to the point of having 'racist' attitudes by Jeffrey Rosen and Charles Lane...t is precisely this set of relationships that elevates social science above and beyond empiricism in theory or racism in practice. For these reasons, Professor Rushton is and must be considered a valued member of both the academic and scientific communities to which he contributes. We need to be reminded that those truths held to be self-evident are those which are most in need of reexamination.
