How do you review resumes in a way that reduces implicit bias? I just finished reading the book, "Biased," which discusses the implicit biases we all hold. Our company has not invested in an ATS software, and we’re looking to create a scoring rubric / database in excel based on the job description and candidates. What are ways to ensure the resume review process controls for bias and is still efficient / expedient?

If your competitor reached out to ask “how do you sell against us” would you tell them? They should already know... or at least have an idea.
What are some ways your team is staying connected? As we know HR is always taking care of the business, so I am curious how HR has been taking care of themselves during this time. Thanks!

I keep hiring sales people who are super enthusiastic and overpromising on what they deliver. I put them through a trial month (no base + commission only) and they do not close a single deal, Even though the commission structure is amazing and I’m incentivizing them through the roof￼. We experienced sales people are asking for a base and commission but I’m scared that I’ll end up having a base and the same thing will end up happening.￼ What am I doing wrong?￼
We've had a few instances of possible COVID sick employees that returned with negative test results. Upper management is basically asking if there is something they can do to help control what employees are doing in their off time (ie. going to bars or other places with a lot of people). They even went as far as to mention something about a wedding that 3 of the employees are in together. Can an employer have ANY control over an employee's time off? It seems crazy to think that they think they can.
If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?

The current administration has banned critical race theory-based diversity training across federal agencies claiming education around white privilege is anti-American. As someone who is dedicated to anti-racism work, I believe these conversations on the pervasiveness of systemic racism are necessary in order to dismantle the broken system and are central to our work as HR professionals. I fear what precedent this ban will set. Thoughts from other HR pros? https://www.forbes.com/sites/janicegassam/2020/09/05/trump-bans-diversity-training-claiming-its-divisive-anti-american-propaganda/

In our large multinational company, we have an employee who has been hit with the Covid unfortunately. He has been in isolation for 19 days and keeps getting a positive test. Not sure how but it is what it is. He is a cheerful guy managing sales so this new normal in complete solitude is hitting him pretty hard. Any recs on what we can do as a company to uplift his spirits? Was thinking we do a pre-recorded video from his team (12 people) to wish him a speedy recovery /share some inside jokes - or a care package delivery. Looking for any creative and touching recs / brainstorming ideas!
