Roller Coaster enthusiasts are usually bummed by the extremely short track, wishing there were more ups, downs, and mega insane twists. While we can’t blame a thrill seeker for wanting a longer ride, maybe roller coasters are just meant to be short and to the point, and not drawn out, exhausting, and detrimental to those around it.
The NHL, it’s players, league officials, and fans of the game have just reached the end of their own long roller coaster ride. While the lockout…Continue

I started blogging on RBC back in May of 2011. I was just about to go back into recruiting, this time as a corporate recruiter. I’d played around the edges of social media for a while, but this was my first attempt at garnering an audience. I was terrified.
The wonderful people at RBC were very welcoming, and even the mean comments were worth something. I made some great online friends and worked with AMAZING people like…Continue

If people are a company's key to gaining competitive advantage, then this is the area where an employer brand strategy should be looking to generate the most traction.
To place the sole responsibility for your employer brand strategy with one department, be that HR or Marketing makes no sense at all. This is a shared responsibility and so needs a shared involvement. How many CFO's or COO do you know that have involvement in their company's employer brand strategy? Then ask why it is…Continue

I'm the current newbie here at Lipton Fleming and the other evening, whilst sharing a few civilised drinks and a game of Trivial Pursuit in the local, I was grilled by my friends about my new job.
