Skimping on Employee Training Because of Costs? Bad Idea.

Training is one of the best ways we know to hire and keep customers and your top performing employees. Too often small-business owners ignore the value of providing a formal training program, focusing instead on worrying that the employees they invest time and money into are just going to leave anyway. We get that (kinda) but…

What about your customers?

Inadequate training is THE biggest underlying reason for the scarcity of great customer…

Are You Short Selling your Employees?

Short selling is a term in trading. We usually invest in something that we believe will grow and increase in value. When we consider investing in candidates, we see the ROI on long-term investments in employees. When you “go long” in investing in employees, you expect the value of your employees to rise and drive the success of the…

The Worst Thing That Can Happen to Training



Managers.

That’s right, managers. If your training programs don’t have quality and comprehensive information that compounds upon your investment in your management team, well…it probably won’t work!

Why? Because managers directly affect the people around them (at least they should) so if they…

A Lesson in Lessons

Find the best technology so that you can teach and learn in the fastest most efficient way, but don't just start and stop with good tech. There is a human side to this equation. Even the best training management software is better when management knows how to lead their team through it. An article recently featured on Inc. gives us some great tips on how to teach anyone…

Get off the Bench

My local churches have come through again. One of them has a sermon posted for this weekend titled Get off the Bench. It made me think for a moment about how that would apply to HR. When you think about it that is where HR is today. We are on that bench. We as HR professionals seem to be complacent with staying in one position even if that leads us to be…

Beating Low Morale in the Workplace



Instead of handing employees a handbook and wishing them the best of luck, there’s a better way to get them informed and engaged. Employees who are given the proper material and training, engage and produce. It’s common sense, if companies facilitate the proper training of…

Training and Retention

They go hand-in-hand, or at least they should. No one wants to be the employee who doesn’t know their job, and no one wants to work with that employee. Initial training, as well as continued training, gives employees a sense of worth and the chance to excel in their position.  Engagement and pride in a job well done is a…

A Personal Snapshot of the Recruitment Training Industry

Most of the recruitment training content I’ve seen seems to simply reinforce the behaviours that has helped create the state the agency recruitment market finds itself in today.

Cold-Calling (or Business Development as many seem to prefer calling it) is a popular training area – and if there is anything more circular that teaching recruiters to…

Please do not judge a book by it's cover - The Marissa Mayer Edict Part II

Over the past almost 7 years that we have been blogging int he HR space we have made much about the bad decision by corporate management to rely solely on the recruitment of passive candidates to fulfill their talent management needs. Now Yahoo has reportedly taken this to a new level -  Not only can you not work outside the office, you have to have ivory tower credentials to boot. Lets get some facts out on the table right upfront less someone accuse me of not appreciating the efforts that…
