Talent Management Blog

What a week we had here on Talentmgt.com! In case you missed it, here were the top five stories.

1. The Power Is Yours: Change You or Change It: Sometimes we make the mistake of trying to change our situation when we should be changing something about ourselves, or vice versa, writes Talent Management columnist Marshall Goldsmith, who is also the author and co-editor of 31 books, including MOJO.

2. Mentoring in the Networked Workplace: What holds true for traditional one-on-one mentoring remains true for emerging models conducted from a distance: Virtual relationships require tangible trust, writes Randy Emelo, president and CEO of enterprise mentoring systems provider Triple Creek.

3. Six Ways to Empower Employees to Take Initiative: The “it’s not my job” attitude is more than just an employee career killer; it’s a symptom of a much larger organizational problem. Workers who  simply do their jobs and nothing more do not contribute to company growth, writes Joel Garfinkle, executive coach and author of Getting Ahead: Three Steps to Take Your Career to the Next Level.

4. The CEO’s Role in Talent Management: Don’t just tell your employees they’re your most valuable asset — show them. And get your CEO involved in talent management efforts to drive home the message, writes Halley Bock, CEO of leadership development and training firm Fierce Inc.

5. Resume ‘Back Holes’ Could be Costly: Many employers fail to adequately follow up with job applicants, leaving them frustrated and angry. This lack of communication hurts the candidate experience — and potentially the bottom line, writes Talent Management editor Frank Kalman.

In Other News

Maryland has become the first state to pass a law banning employers from asking job candidates to provide them with social media passwords so they can screen their activity before making a hiring decision.

The bill was passed unanimously by the state Senate and by a wide margin in the House,  and is awaiting the signature from Maryland Gov. Martin O’Mailey. It seeks to prevent employers from asking for passwords for Facebook, Twitter or any other social media accounts.

The bill’s passage comes on the heels of a story originally reported by the AP that said some employers were requiring candidates to turn over logins to non-public social networks so they could screen candidate behavior prior to making a hiring decision. Talent Management editor Frank Kalman addressed the issue in this March 22 blog post.

Brinker

News also broke late Thursday that part of a class-action lawsuit heard by the California Supreme Court against Brinker International Inc. can proceed. The suit, which has been closely watched, deals with employee meal and rest breaks at Brinker’s restaurants.

As reported by Reuters, “The California high court authorized a class of workers in the state to proceed with claims that they were denied proper rest breaks by Brinker. With respect to the meal break claims, the court rules that employers only have to provide meal periods to workers, not make sure employees actually take them.”

The groups of workers first filed the suit against Brinker — which owns Chili’s and Romano’s Macaroni Grills — in 2004. The group of 60,000 non-unionized, hourly employees claimed that managers pressured them to skip their breaks by failing to adequately staff the restaurants or by threatening to cut or change their hours.

A complete version of the story, as it appears on chicagotribune.com, can be viewed here.
