WIRTW #173 (the bird brain edition)

We know spring is in the air in the southwestern suburbs of Cleveland because the robins are out in full flight. One of these robins must have a nest somewhere outside my family room, because it keeps attacking the window (see right, for proof). It boggles my mind that something would engage in the same fruitless (and painful) endeavor for weeks on end. And yet, should it? We’ve all dealt with employees who repeat the same deficiencies. We try to rehabilitate them via performance reviews, improvement plans, and write-ups, often in vain. Are we any different than the bird?

Here’s the rest of what I read this week:


Wage & Hour

Social Media & Workplace Technology

HR & Employee Relations

Labor Relations
