About 80 percent of mergers and acquisitions fail. Despite that poor record — and signs that the failure is often a part of poor talent integration — HR is still rarely involved in most transactions and their processes up front.

No one can credibly deny that sexual harassment is a persistent and pervasive problem.  It infects all industries; none is immune.

While this blog focuses on sexual harassment, we must create cultures that do not tolerate any kind of harassing behavior, such as harassment based on race, ethnicity, age or disability.  Harassment of any kind is the enemy of inclusion.

In this interview with Joey Price of Jumpstart HR, SHRM CEO Johnny C. Taylor, Jr. talks about how HR must continue to grow in its role as strategic partner and the epicenter of where workplace culture is fostered.  This is especially true if HR is to thrive as a career path for today’s generation.

Usually, job descriptions are boring. Anyone who has ever written several job descriptions likely has experienced the feeling of their eyes glazing over while typing the words “responsibilities” and “qualifications” over and over (and over) again.
