As a career human resources professional, I’ve never witnessed anything like what’s happening in today’s job market. Almost a million jobs were added in July. But the labor force participation rate – a measure of the share of working-age Americans who are employed or looking for work – stayed pretty much the same. That’s unheard of.
Synergis, an IT and creative staffing agency, is pleased to announce the addition of Leona Rapelye to its leadership team. As Vice President, Human Resources, Rapelye is responsible for ensuring that people programs are aligned with business strategies. She drives talent and culture initiatives that deliver strong business results and a world-class employee experience.
I stumbled upon a product owner talk with General Assembly. If you haven’t heard about General Assembly, it’s a great resource for free meetups and chats. They also have courses geared towards experts and newcomers to different industries. This past Monday, Trevor Bruner, author of A Quick Start to Product Management, gave a fireside chat about all things product management. His book is geared toward product owners who are just starting out. He wrote the book because it’s filled with advice that he wished he knew 10 years ago when first starting as a product owner.
