As a small business owner, you might not currently offer health insurance for your employees. This isn't something that is required, so it's certainly understandable why you might not offer this perk. Plus, you might have always assumed that it would be expensive to offer health insurance to employees. However, even if you haven't given it much thought in the past, you may want to reconsider your position. These are a few reasons why it can be worth it for small business…Continue

Labor Day. It’s almost upon us. It marks the end of the summer and beginning of the school. It’s a chance to enjoy one last hurrah before the cold reality of fall sets in.

Caring for your employees isn't just the right thing to do, it can also save your company a substantial amount of money. Taking care of your employees results in less sick days, increased productivity, and greater engagement in the workplace. Almost 90 percent of employers assume when an employee leaves it's because they found a better paying job; however, this is actually only true in about 12 percent of the cases. Losing employees is expensive, and it can be time-consuming and expensive to…Continue

As I watched the news the past couple of days, the newest hot debate is over extending unemployment benefits. The previous extension has expired, and the politicians - as always - are looking for a "winning" argument to score political points for the next election. It seems like the easiest thing to do for a politician is go around saying that the pursuit of happiness includes a free…Continue

The president of our company and I were recently invited to attend a keynote given by one the 50 most influential people in business internationally and I could go on and on with all their credits but will reframe. She was asked what bit of information she would pass on to someone just getting started. I could give you her answer but that was not the point of this post.
The more I thought about her speech the more I thought how there is really little difference in those at the top…Continue

Sometimes, the client experience can feel a bit like buying a house. I put forward a great candidate, they do a perfect interview and are offered the job. Client and candidate are happy. At least until someone else comes along with a better offer and lo and behold – that client has been ‘gazumped’ by the lure of a higher salary.
This happened to one of my clients recently, with the candidate turning down a role (despite already having accepted it) for the sake of a few thousand pounds…Continue

This morning it was widely reported that the "unemployment rate" dropped to 7.8% - and that most of the drop was "the fact that many people simply stopped looking for a job." That comment is very disrespectful to unemployed people who are working harder than ever to find a job.
The rate that is reported as the unemployment rate by the Bureau of Labor Statistics…
In a recent blog, we wrote about salary and benefits requirements for IT job seekers – and why candidates need to know everything they want (compensation) before starting the interview process with potential employers. Salary and benefits are key factors when determining whether a job is the right one for you. But there’s one other component in the decision-making process that is very…Continue

Recruitment is a fantastic industry to be in! In general recruiters love dealing with a variety of people, juggling different needs from different candidate and different employers and matching candidates with employers (both from a job description perspective and also from a personality/environment perspective).
Many recruiters started as professionals in another field, whilst just as many came out of Uni with an HR or similar degree and decided helping people find their…Continue
