    18 Facts That Make Houston The Best City In America

    When you think about Houston, Texas, you probably picture massive oil refineries, oppressive humidity, and a sub-par baseball team — a far cry from one of the nation's most up-and-coming cities.  But you shouldn't dismiss Houston so easily; the Bayou City is an economic juggernaut. It's by far the country's No. 1 job creator and home to 26 Fortune 500 companies. A paycheck goes farther here than anywhere else in the country, and it has a medical center larger than downtown Dallas.  Add a thriving restaurant and cultural scene, and you've got a winning case for Houston as the best city in America. Here are 18 reasons you may want to pack your bags and head south. It's got the jobs. Houston is the No. 1 city for…

    Waitress Is Fired After Complaining About Lousy Tips On Facebook

    An Ohio waitress was fired from her job after she complained about lousy tips in a Facebook post.  Kirsten Kelly told local CBS affiliate WTOL that she vented online after a number of parties tipped her less than $6 for meals that cost at least $50. "I just said, ‘If you come into a restaurant and spend $50 or more, you should be able to tip appropriately for that,'" Kelly said, referring to the Facebook post, which has since been removed. Kelly claims the post was vague and didn't mention anyone by name. She was fired Monday after one of the poorly tipping customers saw her Facebook post and brought it to the attention of her managers at Texas Roadhouse in Findlay, Ohio. The customer…

    Quick Shots for #HR and #Business Pros – #SHRM14 Edition

    This edition is dedicated to the Society for Human Resources Management’s annual conference. It is “the” event for human resources professionals. Last week, I spent a few days in Orlando listening to speakers, learning about the latest products and services in the expo hall and networking with colleagues. I hope you like the image – it’s a collage of the photos I took during the conference. Here are a few things from the event that I’ll be keeping on my radar: President Obama has directed the Labor Department to “modernize” the FLSA regulations. What does that mean for business? This article shares where overtime is headed. SHRM announced more details regarding their new certifications, called the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP. They have created a webpage…

    7 Reasons This Is An Excellent Resume For Someone With No Experience

    Writing your very first resume can be a daunting process. And it doesn't help to know that recruiters spend an average of six seconds reviewing a resume before they make the initial decision on candidates, according to research conducted by TheLadders, an online job-matching service for professionals. "Many students don't know what should and should not be included in their first resume," says Amanda Augustine, a career expert at TheLadders. "While there are no hard and fast rules when writing a resume, it really depends on what content you have to work with, there are some preliminary guidelines all students or new professionals should follow." She says the most important things to think about when you're creating your first resume are your job goals and your audience.…

    4 Secrets to Effective Communication

    “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” ~ George Bernard Shaw The inability to clearly communicate is one of the single most problematic issues in life. Poor communication can ruin relationships, thwart business endeavors, and even start wars. Imagine how much of an impact effective communication can your own life, whether it be in your relationships or at your job. If you want to communicate better, and subsequently improve your personal and business relationships, you first need to understand how to communicate clearly. Two Ears, One Mouth Just like mom told you. Effective communicators listen far more than they speak. There are several reasons for this. First, listening is gathering information, and when you communicate about a subject, it’s always best…

    How Hierarchy Is Killing Your Culture

    Twenty-first century organizations are flattening, but the change can’t happen quickly enough. Although the corporate hierarchy was invented to promote efficiency, it doesn’t work particularly well in a business world that moves at the speed of technology. If you’re holding on to the old, bureaucratic ways of doing things, you're hurting your business. Don't believe me? 1. Hierarchies Move Too Slowly Organizations need to be able to adapt quickly to changing market conditions, but a complex hierarchy is like a lumbering giant. As Harvard professor John Kotter told Debbie Robins in The Huffington Post: “Put simply, a hierarchy can’t handle speed well. Rules and procedures that inevitably accompany hierarchies almost never change fast even if they are now irrelevant, overly burdensome, and the…

    Preparing for #HR Assignments in Another Country – Ask HR Bartender

    Today’s question deals with an issue I think more HR pros will be contemplating in the future – international assignments. Hi Sharlyn. I love your site and read your blog every day! I’m an HR professional in Canada and am hoping to continue my HR career in the U.S. next year. I know there are a host of differences between national and state laws, but am wondering if you have any tips on where to go in order to become familiar with U.S. HR-related law ahead of time. Thanks! I’ve worked with several professionals who’ve had global assignments. And, I’ve had some international responsibilities myself, although I’ve never lived outside the U.S. There are two main considerations when you think about international roles…

    How To Make Friends When You're A Grown-Up

    One of the things they didn't tell you about adulthood is that it's hard to make friends.  Take it from the New York Times, who report that as you get older:  "it becomes tougher to meet the three conditions that sociologists since the 1950s have considered crucial to making close friends: proximity; repeated, unplanned interactions; and a setting that encourages people to let their guard down and confide in each other ... This is why so many people meet their lifelong friends in college." So once you're out of college — and, say, moved to a new city — those conditions are harder to meet.  Take New York for example: You have to be super dedicated to schlep to see your buddy on the…

    Here's One Thing Young Advertising Creatives Should Be Doing To Get Ahead

    The internet has fragmented the advertising industry, creating more opportunities than ever for young people to try new roles and prove their worth to their employers. Last week, Jay Haines from Grace Blue, the ad industry executive search firm, told Business Insider about what newcomers to the business should be doing to get ahead. Haines, Grace Blue's CEO for North America, told us that in addition to the obvious (work hard, take on additional responsibilities, etc.), young creative types looking for a promotion can do wonders for themselves by learning how the business side of their company works. Since agencies are increasingly being paid on a per-project basis instead of an annual payment promised in advance, Haines said firms are looking to chief financial officers…

    How to Know It's Time to Quit Your Job

    As the economy improves, many people are considering leaving jobs they've stuck with for fear of not being able to land another position.But before you quit, think of this:1. Are you thinking clearly? Don't quit when you're feeling panicked or stressed by too much work and just want a way out. Don't make decision in the heat of the moment. Quitting should be something you have considered when everything is going along smoothly. Quitting when you're emotional could mean it's a decision that you regret later and could be costly both financially and professionally.2. Will things improve? If you've got a boss who is the poster child for an ogre and makes your life miserable no matter what you do, then it…

    Is that Work-Life Roadblock Really You?

    We all face challenges and all our challenges have a dimension where we contribute to the problem. This doesn’t make it “our fault” but it does give us a place to start in removing the roadblock!

    3 Quotes That Teach Us About Being Human

    I am a reforming perfectionist, reforming being the key word. Change in our relationships with ourselves is a process. It requires vulnerability, acceptance, and compassion. I’ve gone through phases of comparing myself to others and discounting my own good qualities. I’ve experienced the restlessness that comes with never feeling good enough. I have developed my own love/hate relationship with control and certainty. It has not always been easy to look at this part of myself. Any of us may have that place within that we would rather not see. We wish to hide it for fear of rejection and disconnection, or we may wish to deny it to avoid the discomfort that comes with acknowledgment. It is hard to see ourselves clearly…
