When is using 'senior' or 'junior' in job advertisements discriminatory? +

The Future for Performance Management Starts Here +
Along with the understandable dread of performance reviews from employees, a lack of confidence for the usual review process has also occurred. In a recent survey by Globoforce and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) figures have suggested that 45% of HR leaders don't think performance reviews are an accurate appraisal for employees' work, and 42% don't think that employees are rewarded fairly enough for their job performance. From these findings it's clear that a new approach to performance management needs to be taken.

Wow, isn’t that an amazing number?
The report then goes on to suggest a number of very sensible and reasonable solutions to give more women access to the workplace. In fairness most of the suggestions were common sense and all of them were either the same, or variations on a theme, as things suggested many times before. Still, 10% is a huge missed opportunity.
Then I began to think about this more and realised that, although there is a gender gap here that clearly needs attention, the problem is not simply that we need more women. The issue here may be… Read More
