I just might be the least athletic person I know. I am surrounded by sports. My nephews and their wives do cross-fit competitions. My husband (in his youth) took part in body building competitions. My niece grew up on the soccer field and my boys have always played baseball with a little soccer and football thrown in as we…Continue
A couple of decades ago, our society began to do something that I believe has reshaped our kids and caused unintended consequences in the way they interact with others, evaluate their own self-worth, and engage themselves in business. It's when we started making sure every child received a trophy, or a medal, or…Continue

1) LinkedIn has become the best hunting ground for recruiters.
2) As more companies are asking their employees to become participants in “social media” candidate referral programs, more employees are using sites…
In a crowded marketplace, bringing customers in can be easier said than done. If you're just one of many other businesses all offering a similar service, you need to be able to show potential clients that you're worthy of their time and money. Potential customers are not all exactly alike, but they all…Continue

Vince Lombardi said it best when he said“Winning isn't everything, but wanting to win is”. It never ceases to amaze me that most HR people I meet are non-competitive when it comes to helping their business win and in applying HR strategies and policies. They use words like ethics and fairness to tell…
Would a football coach ever think about playing and winning at football without their playbook? A playbook contains offensive, defensive and special team plays with techniques and vocabulary relating to game plays as well as information about team formations. Football playbook's are given to each team member at the…Continue
The Indian summer seems to have officially gone and it's now time to dust off the winter coats and step into the cold wind, hoping that London can avoid coming to a standstill this winter. With any luck, you might even sink your hand into the pocket of your long forgotten favourite winter coat to find a tenner you didn't realise was in there. I would love to say that's what happened to me, alas, it did not. A year old packet of chewing gum isn't nearly as…Continue

In 216 BC Hannibal crossed the Alps in terrible conditions to attack Italy. His generals pleaded with him not to attempt it saying it would be impossible to cross the Alps with elephants. On hearing this Hannibal said “Aut viam inveniam aut faciam” or translated from Latin, I will either…Continue
If you could help your company increase it’s sales and profits and look like a superstar at the same time would you do it? I am amazed at how shortsighted most human resource and recruitment organizations are when it comes to helping their companies win more business.

I am always amazed when I am approached by a client who has a retention problem. It’s always interesting to note that they have not dealt with some of the small things that can be done to somewhat lock the door from the barbarians at the gate, those pesky headhunters.
Rule #1: Make sure employee/telephone directories are not available for download and make it extremely difficult for anyone including employees to print or copy it. It’s incredible how…
There is something almost archaic about the term job board. It connotes a dirty tack ridden area with pamphlets adorned across its frayed wooden edges. This is a place where a multitude of companies each place their latest and greatest positions for individuals to cluster around, sneer and glean any piece of vital information that can assist their application.
It’s almost scandalous just how long the term job board has been around. Why do we accept this term? The pace of…Continue
I work for a recruiting corporation in Northern VA. I focus on accounting and finance and place professionals on temporary and temp to hire positions. There are a lot of factors that are in play with our market. Yes, we are one of the best markets in America. However, that also means that we have some of the toughest competition because everyone that is anyone is here. To top it off, many of the larger users of temp are moving their lower level operations out of town because labor is…Continue
