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


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!
