It Takes a Village: Employee Engagement; Is it Important?

Poor HR, employee engagement is their responsibility, yet it is definitely one of those things that cannot be done alone. Employee Engagement is one of those things that companies really struggle with when it comes to prioritizing, surveying, implementing and monitoring effectiveness; why? Well it is overwhelming.

When Employees Steal

These are dire times.  The economy is sketchy, and employees can do foolish things in desperation.   Many people need money, and more often than not,  a fair portion of an employer's staff is probably in straits with overdue payments on everything from mortgages to the telephone bill.  So in some ways it should be no wonder that employment theft is on the rise.

Employment theft is on the rise and industrial espionage has actually increased significantly during the past few years.   In…

Hiring Mistakes: How to Avoid Them and What to Do If You Don’t

Have you ever hired someone who didn’t turn out to be what you expected?  Did that seemingly well-spoken, educated and experienced interviewee turn into just another “warm body” consuming valuable office air, or worse, turning off your best customers?  We call it a “cultural malignancy” when a senior level hire fails to fit with their team – affecting team members’ performance or causing key team members to leave. Ouch.

Well, it turns out you’re not the only one who’s been caught in a…

The Renault Case--When Industrial Espionage Case Might Has Hidden Objectives

Industrial espionage has been on the rise, along with employee theft.   Perhaps it is the bad economy or perhaps the overall loosening of ethics, but more employees, disgruntled and otherwise are stealing valuable proprietary data and attempting to sell it to the competitor.

French automotive giant, Renault, thought it had such a calamity where three of its employees where suspected of stealing sensitive documents related to Renault's electric car program and selling it off to the…

Job board Ranked #2 Source of New Hires, Second only to Referrals (mostly employee referrals)

Today, Mark and Gerry of CareerXRoads released their latest 2010 Source of Hire Report.

 

Two of the most notable changes in the numbers this year are the following:

What are you doing when a candidate’s bubble bursts?

The NCAA tournament is gloriously upon us and like every year there are teams that watched their team’s bubble burst on Selection Sunday (unfortunately including my alma-mater Boston College).  While their resumes were all good enough to make the tournament (and some think better than some teams that made it), the selection committee had to turn them away as they could ONLY select 68 teams.  Now the bubble bursting teams search for the next opportunity and move on to play the NIT as a…

Beware of Thieving Employees and Increased Industrial Espionage

Make no mistake, industrial espionage is on the rise.  That and an increase in employee theft have given more than one executive premature gray hairs.   Large multi-national corporations and smaller business entities are all vulnerable.  All you need is something the other guy wants.   It can be everything from advanced, first in your space technology to intellectual property.  It can be sensitive databases, customer rosters, proprietary data.

Call it a sign of the times or the…

Cultivating Your Career Change

I hear that you hate your job and are ready to leave! You got in touch with a recruiter who found you an amazing position and the phrase “peace out” is roaring in your head. Those bridges are ready to be burned, but hold up a minute. People are always afraid of change. They focus so much on just leaving the job that they forget that the way they do so is very important. Keeping connections with your old employer is crucial!

You want to know why? Well, think about it for a second. If…

Achievement Awareness!

How fun is your place of employment? Is it a place of ruin and despair ruled by a tyrant dictator that pretends he is running a great company?
