Has HR reached the tipping point for management practices such as mobile work? How can HR harness the “blink” principles in evaluating job candidates and employees?
Those are some suggested topics Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) members have posted for New York Times best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell when he speaks at the June 25, 2012, general session at SHRM’s 64th Annual Conference & Exposition in Atlanta.
Conference attendees can submit topic ideas to the author of The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference (Little, Brown, 2000), Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking (Little, Brown, 2005),Outliers: The Story of Success (Little, Brown, 2008) and What the Dog Saw (Little, Brown, 2009).
Suggestions should be submitted at http://buzz.annual.shrm.org by May 11, 2012.
Gladwell will customize his talk specifically for our audience, “and putting the direction of that talk into the hands of our attendees is very exciting” and “a privilege,” said Letty Kluttz, SPHR, MBA, manager of conference programming for SHRM.
