Cute comic on how programmers really review resumes – and it’s pretty much on the money from where I’m sitting!  BUT, there’s a more serious message going on here, and it’s that often we ignore – how close is HR”s profile match to the one the business really thinks is right?

Often in workforce planning projects we come across organizations who are stuck in a “skills, skills, skills” focus on workforce planning – as though every person with those skills are the same as the others, and nothing else changes the attraction/retention/performance issues.  OK, so we might not want to be planning on Facebook pictures, but this illustration is a good one to show what the people in the business might be interested in in their “ideal” employees.

How well do you think your HR profile matches the profile the people who do the work have?  And which is more important? Tags:
