Culture + employment brand = talent advantage

Apr 20, 2018 by Kathleen Quinn Votaw Category: Blog 0 comments

Culture permeates every workplace, but it’s invisible if you don’t pay attention to it. How would you describe yours? Would employees say the same? Becoming a “best” company, “cool” company, or whatever you want to be, won’t happen by default. You have to make it happen based on your particular mix of values, beliefs and […]

Until now, high-level strategy meetings ended with an afterthought something like “…and oh yeah, we better tell HR …” HR was traditionally seen as a cost center, relegated to administrative and transactional back-room responsibilities like finding and training employees when needed, and managing employee benefits and compliance.

In the age of the internet we think we’re pretty unique when it comes to dealing with big change. But did you know that the quote, “The only thing that is constant is change,” was first said in about 500 BC by Heraclitus of Ephesus? The reality is that from fire to Facebook, “we the […]

Exit autopilot and hit refresh

We regularly refresh our memories, our screens, our drinks … Too often we let our relationships drift into autopilot, especially our closest ones. This is the time of year we start thinking about what we’ll do better to improve our lives next year. Lose ten pounds and get more exercise are at the top of […]

Gratefulness and Grace—a short letter of Thanksgiving

All year long, I dig in and drive TalenTrust to the next goal. A good trait in some ways, but it often makes me forget to slow down and remember all of the meaningful things I’ve done in my life so far, the wonderful people who’ve taught me along the way, and how much fun […]

Aug 04, 2017 by Kathleen Quinn Votaw Category: Blog 0 comments

If you’re thinking “enough about the five generations in the workplace” you’ll be wise to think again (and again) about how you can prepare and thrive as Gen-Y (Millennials) and Gen-Z replace retiring Baby Boomers. Ignoring differences in generational expectations and preferences is no longer an option. Strategically developing a culture and policies that embrace […]

It takes a strong head – big heart leader

Jun 30, 2017 by Kathleen Quinn Votaw Category: Blog 0 comments

We could argue forever about whether great leaders are born or made, or about whether a benevolent dictator or laissez-faire leadership style is more likely to create success. What matters most about leaders today, though, is that they have both a strong head and a big heart. That’s what it will take to lead effectively […]
