How many times has this happened? You open a job to your agencies and they begin submitting candidates. One by one you review the résumés, separating the candidates into “yes” and “no” piles, but quickly the flow of applicants turns to a trickle and the quality of candidates seems to stagnate--or even worse--decline. Your boss and HR is pressing you to fill the position and you throw up your hands, saying, "I need better agencies.” Your first reaction may be to put the job out to more…Continue
I’ve recently moved into the exciting world of providing Temps after a few years’ break & wow – has it changed. Not only because the Agency Workers Regulations that were introduced in October 2011 gives agency workers (temps) entitlement to the same basic employment & working conditions as if they’d been recruited directly.

Bear with me on this one.

With the advent of the Internet came a lot of predictions that it would spell the end of recruitment…Continue

Unfortunately, just as the economy was showing signs of improving, a number of factors are causing it to weaken again. Rising food and oil prices, supply chain disruptions due to the Japanese nuclear disaster and a still-horrendous housing market are all to blame. How will it impact your business? Mostly by affecting consumers.
As oil prices have climbed more than 20% this year, high gas prices are slowing the momentum of the recent economic improvements. Gas and food inflation are…Continue

A rapidly growing trend for both small and large companies is the use of Software as a Service (SaaS).

Unlike traditional software licensing, where you buy a license and subsequent upgrades, SaaS typically involves yearly or monthly fees to allow access to the software. Once the end user…Continue
