Hi all,

If staffing firms are searching for greater efficiency, spending countless hours chasing time cards and manually entering data each week won’t help.

You can make a hire when key decision makers disagree but can come to a compromise.  The way this typically works, one decision maker feels strongly about the skills that a candidate has and what they will bring to the table.  Another decision maker doesn’t feel that way, but settles.  We have to fill the position, hopefully this will work.

What you can’t do when key decision makers disagree is have a great hiring process that builds great teams.  The key players have to be on the…

10 Haikus About Office Life

Office life can be a thing of great extremes, with every triumphant, team-uniting high counter-balanced by days when the team fails to click and every email carries bad news. But for most offices, most of the time, the general atmosphere is one of habit, routine, and bittersweet predictability.
