SORT BY Relevancy
It's another week and the Australian Government continues to talk up a war in the Middle East despite polls saying people are against it. There remains serious problems for Abbott's first Budget and with less confidence in the market.
It's hard to say that their international diplomatic efforts are any better. With missteps and wild rhetoric the real order of the day Australia's two major parties have signed the country up to another war without any end in sight or an exit plan. And all of it will comes with a massive price tag - yet there's no money for education and healthcare; or to care for our most vulnerable people.
And then there's the mandatory data retention regime.

SHOW NOTES: Our HR HEROES HANGOUT™ series is dedicated to those who serve our societies each day, toiling in the bowels of the human capital infrastructure issues that fuel all organizations (hiring, retention, engagement, efficiency, compensation, legal compliance, policy and procedure continuous improvement, training and education, litigation mitigation, etc.); our HR HEROES! These are the unsung heroes that ensure that organizations achieve and sustain maximum human capital competitive advantage! In this episode our topic is, "How HR Helps (or hurts) Retention in the Hiring Process!"
In this episode we explore the hiring process situations where our HR HEROES actually are SUPER-HEROES!
How? The mission for our HR Hero is to simultaneously defend the organization against "bad apples" while trying to lure in and retain "good apples." A "bad apple" is a human who does not want to be part of the organization. A "good apple" is a human who does want to be part of the organization. A "bad apple" must be warded off, defended against and expelled (if one gets past the organizational defenses).
Why? Someone who "does not want to be here" will destroy everything they come in contact with. They complain, sabotage, obstruct, create conflict and spread the misery and pain that they are experiencing to peer staff, supervisor, customers, vendors, social media and any other entity that they interact with. They do not want to be there so they don't care about the mission statement, the customer, the goals, the culture, their coworkers, their boss, anything at all.
You may wonder, why would a "bad apple" even bother to try to enter our organization if they don't want to be there? Well, they have other motives. 1) They are broke and need money. Your organization represen

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter has been helping organizations hire leaders and staff for more than 40 years.
On this show, Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter offers some thoughts about some of the benefits of working with third party recruiters as part of your recruiting efforts.
On this show, Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter uses lessons from The New York Yankees to help you examine ways you can improve your staff retention.
Job retention and job security should be part of work plans for all who have to work for a living. Your plan for getting hired must include job retention and job security. In your wish list (goals) as you work toward earning a paycheck, don't make it just about the money. You can and will accumulate money from a variety or sources as you go through life. The money you earn doing your work for life should be a product of your skills to retain your job in a company that at least gives you the security of investing in you beyond wages.
Work for life is about more than getting a good paying job. Work for Life is about, job retention, job security, disposable income, and a leisure retirement. Work for life targets Veterans, Men with families, and Young Men just beginning their work life. We want you to have vacations along the way, and we want you to work to end with a leisurely retirement. This all takes plans, work, and faith.

Lessons Learned about Customer Retention strategies, programs, tools, and ideas. We also cover a little about the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman trial, gun control, human self-preservation, and niche social media as we talk about the upcoming release of our new Niche Social media Guide that goes to the publisher this week.
What if you could learn one thing each week that improved your overall business performance by 1% per year. That would mean that after one year you could literally improve your business by more than 50% and all it would take is to learn from the lessons you are already being taught but are probably ignoring as you race ahead to put out more fires.
This show is all about fixing that by taking two hours out of your week to share your lessons and the lessons of our other listeners so we can all learn and improve even faster. And you know what that will mean before long? That we'll all have a lot fewer and easier fires to put out!
Think of this show as a global mastermind group with expert guests, technology reviews and more that help us learn about new tools, techniques, strategies, and ways that we can both improve our businesses and our lives.
The Australian Government is still having trouble getting the support it needs to ram through a range of changes that would significantly attack the core social elements of Australian society - education, universal health and welfare. But then there's been a few international distractions too.
Let's not forget what's playing out across the Middle East and in Ukraine.
It's going to be a massive show so join the team and vent your spleen.
