Posting from an iPhone presents challenges.

Good lord, who wrote his quotes?Wouldn't a "senior human resources" exec mention the company's people, even in passing?
This guy is bringing a large axe for all his new friends at corporate and Usa Today. Swing early and often. plenty of dead wood here.
Phew...I feel better. We were saving way too much money without this position. Another SVP at USA TODAY coming soon. Even better.
In a departure, the new HR guy -- Kevin Lord -- is actually employed at the moment.
I guess Tim Regan's "trial" run didn't work out.
Gee, I'da thought Steve "HR Is My Craft" Hyatt would have been thrown in there. He certainly has proven his distant aloofness and blantant disregard for those who served the company with decades of their lives -- skills that are now the hallmark of leadership at Gannett. I'd love to see Regan or Hyatt find jobs that pay half what they earn in any other company in the world.

10:27 I feel your pain. Can you imagine the nerve of someone actually expecting you to come to the office once in awhile? Who wouldn't appreciate the job you did fans wearing your cell phone from the Club!
Oops, answering your cell phone!!!!
Yeah!!for the new guy. At least Gannett did not promote anyone from the existing 20 year left overs. Our HR team needs a significant knowledge uplift. Many have been in jobs for 15 years or more and have done nothing to expand or improve their HR skills or knowledge...just show up everday and that's that. HR is not taken seriously in the field, the publishers dislike the current HR structure, we waste a lot of time on worthless conference calls, and are expected to devote a significant amount of our time to recruiting when we have a talent acquisition team (some pretty worthless-but they are employed just the same). Again, yeah for the new guy, fresh approach. Hopefully we will have some much needed changes in people close to the top, regional, etc and get some great people.
