  • Feeling Alone and Undervalued, Almost Half of Managers Are Heading for the Exit
    on December 4, 2019 at 1:58 pm

    We all know it’s a tight talent market out there, but retention conversations often revolve around employees. HR pros and organizational leaders are pouring a lot of time and energy into keeping top performers engaged and on board. That’s an important initiative, but it often overlooks the company’s managers — the very people responsible for keeping talented workers happy. As it turns out, organizations shouldn’t be taking their managers for granted: About half of them are ready to walk out the door. …

  • Recruitment 2020: 5 Ways the Field Will Change Next Year
    on December 3, 2019 at 6:57 pm

    It’s that time of year again, when trend lists flood the internet. For recruiters and talent acquisition pros, this is a necessary ritual. So much can change in the span of a year, and keeping up with the latest developments can be a daunting task. Sometimes, however, the changes are not as extreme as people would have you believe, and the coverage, frankly, is unoriginal. You’ve certainly seen enough lists heralding the dawn of artificial intelligence (AI) and the arrival of …

  • 4 Not-So-Obvious Signs of a Successful Sales Candidate
    on December 3, 2019 at 6:54 pm

    Five years of experience or more, a top earner in their last role, outstanding recommendations from previous supervisors — yes, these seemingly perfect sales candidates really do exist. However, a candidate is not guaranteed to excel on your team just because their resume ticks all the boxes. Perfect on paper does not necessarily mean perfect in real life. When looking for new sales talent, it’s critical that hiring teams don’t focus all their attention on stereotypically “perfect” 

  • Rushing to Fill Seasonal Roles, Companies Risk Low Morale, Bad Customer Service, and Even Theft
    on December 2, 2019 at 9:47 pm

    Retailers rejoice: It’s shaping up to be a stellar holiday shopping season. According to the National Retail Federation, 2019 holiday sales may rise by as much as 4.2 percent over 2018, possibly reaching a total of $730.7 billion. Making the most of this revenue boom requires beefing up the sales-floor workforce, and the retail sector may need as many as 590,000 seasonal workers this winter. There’s just one hitch: With US …

  • Success Starts With Self-Love: How to Appreciate Yourself
    on December 2, 2019 at 6:36 pm

    Article by Michael Pietrzak John was born on Thanksgiving Day in 1954, but for him, life wasn’t much to be thankful for. A birth defect caused John to wear painful leg braces, and his first-grade teacher told his parents he would never read, write, or amount to anything in life. (Dyslexia and speech impediments, both of which John had, weren’t well understood in the ’50s.) Accepting that he was worthless, John dropped out of school at age 14 and moved …

  • What Are You Willing to Be Fired For?
    on December 2, 2019 at 4:06 pm

    When we work hard on something we believe in, it’s called passion. When we work hard on something we don’t believe in, it’s called stress. – Simon Sinek When searching for the next dream job, we often consider factors like the type of work we will be doing, compensation, and title. Too often, we fail to dig deeper and learn what it would truly be …

  • No Non-Compete, No Problem? Always Proceed With Caution When Recruiting From Competitors

    Recruiting quality candidates in any market is not easy — let alone in a market as tight as this, with its 3.6 percent unemployment rate. And hiring is made even harder by the seeming omnipresence of the dreaded non-compete agreement, a common contract or clause designed to prevent an employee from working for a firm that competes …

  • Toot Your Culture Horn — But Don’t Lay on It
    on November 26, 2019 at 7:38 pm

    When leaders ask me why and how a “cohesion culture” is important to talent acquisition and retention, I refer to the advice my Grandma Goldie once told me: “If you don’t honk your own horn, don’t expect someone else to do it for you. Just don’t lay on it.” This sage advice is a perfect reminder that it is appropriate and acceptable to tell people about what we do and why it is special. However, the cautionary reminder at the end …
