Everyone has reason to become negative about his/her work from time to time. Workplaces are composed of people with various personalities and attitudes, which can become negative when there are deadlines to be met, and challenging tasks to be completed. There is no set solution to preventing negativity in the workplace, but guidelines should be put in place so the employees are held to a certain expectation of behavior when the environment…Continue

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

Here’s the math: 4 days x 8 hours a day = 32 hour workweek.
No catch, no secret “well we work 10 hour days 4 days a week,” but a real live shortened work week. I can almost hear the nervous thoughts and I can confess,…Continue

If you’re a manger of an office team or you own your own company and you have many members of staff working for you, it can’t be under estimated just how important it is to keep up moral around the workplace. Obviously, one of the main reasons that everyone chooses to work is for monetary reasons so making sure that everyone is paid on-time and the correct amount is the first step towards good moral. However, after a while, workers can lose their good moral and this can affect the company’s…Continue

During years when temporary employment makes up slightly more than 2% of the current workforce (nearly 3,000,000 temp workers) and is continuing to increase, it is fascinating to notice the trends in a booming temporary employment and staffing industry compared to trends in employment as a whole.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that a year over year comparison between temporary employment…Continue

I am glad to share creative LinkedIn Sourcing techniques with my colleagues in blog posts, discussions, webinars, and as part of the Sourcing Certification Program..
Lately, I've been running into some LinkedIn functionality that seems temporarily broken.…Continue
Sometimes employees get sick. Sometimes employees have babies. Sometimes employees' babies get sick. Such illnesses, life events and family crises are an inevitable part of adulthood. So why do 43 million Americans working in the private sector still lack the paid time off necessary to deal with them?
That's a question the Obama administration has mulled since a working families summit in June. And the president recently …Continue

The ability to say “no” is almost a talent which can save you from a lot of troubles. But sometimes there are situations when you should say “no” not to someone else, but to yourself.

There are problems in using “predictors” of suitability for open positions within a company. Hunter and Hunter (1984) showed that interviewing is one of the worst predictors of future job performance. Using reference checks (.26), education (.22) or biographical data (.37) did not improve the odds too favorably. In fact, even the best predictor, test scores, came out at .57. We could make the…Continue

News flash –word of mouth marketing about HR isn’t so good. Most people don’t know what you do or why you do it, especially your marketing team. They have no idea just how much your jobs align. (Lucky for you, we won’t tell them if you didn’t know either).
Think about it. Your…Continue
