3 Tips for building connections that last: While management is often a serious and goal-directed pursuit, there also exists a contrary approach – “management by walking around.” The idea is that you can sometimes manage best just by wandering around the factory floor or office without any specific agenda other than to learn something useful and, more importantly, to establish connections with your coworkers and employees. These connections are some of the most important management tools you can develop. …Read More…

How extreme recruiting is winning over millennial tech talent: Millennials and Generation Z are flocking to Silicon Valley for jobs. No surprise, then, that many companies outside the Valley are looking for innovative ways to attract and retain star coders in a technology-driven market. A study from Burning Glass found programming jobs are growing 12 percent faster than the market average, meaning even more competition. The challenge remains even after companies successfully secure new talent: A TEK systems study reported 42 percent of IT leaders believe their businesses struggle to retain top picks in tech. …Read More…

How to make your gut and brain hire together: A few years ago, when I was running my own startup, I had to make a really important hire. It was for one of our first salaried positions, and I wanted to get it right. We interviewed several very qualified people, and winnowed them down to two finalists. We went back and forth over these final two, and finally went with the one who was the most objectively qualified. …Read More…

How to make the most of a performance review: Do you wish you were making more money? Do you feel frustrated that you haven’t received the promotion you’ve been waiting for? Well, now’s the time to make a case for yourself – when your annual employee performance evaluation is coming up. One of the biggest mistakes people make at work is not taking performance reviews seriously enough. Many of us see them as yet another item we have to check off our to-do lists by a certain date. With so much else on our plates, we often rush through the process. There’s just too much going on to waste time on this silly administrative task! …Read More…

Why your talent management practices should center on top talent: In a world of multigenerational workforces and falling unemployment levels, traditional methods of attracting, retaining, and engaging employees are losing their effectiveness. Cerno, which provides adventure learning programs to organizations, recently published a white paper entitled “The Talent Challenge: How Leading Companies Attract, Retain, and Engage Top Talent.” The paper outlines several of the factors that complicate employee retention efforts today, including declining unemployment, generational differences in engagement, and the higher expectations employees have of their employers. The paper also offers a potential solution to these challenges: focusing on what top talent needs. …Read More…

Improve contingent workforce management in 2017: With 2017 fast approaching, many employers have begun to examine how to remove risk from their balance sheets and realign strategic organizational goals in the coming year. One area ripe for review is a company’s contingent labor program. Across industries, employers have increased their use of contingent labor significantly. These professional workers now account for approximately 40 percent of the national workforce according to the U.S. Government Accountability Office. As contingent labor programs grow, however, risk and spend can grow along with them. How, then, does an employer proactively improve its contingent workforce management? …Read More…

Preparing your career for 2017: The holidays can be a difficult time in the life of a professional. Things at work start to slow down a bit, which gives people time to begin considering what they might like to find in a new job, whether it’s more money, a new position, or a better work-life balance. Unfortunately, the time between Thanksgiving and the new year is also a slower time of year for hiring. Many hiring managers go on vacation, and hiring often gets put on hold for budgetary reasons. …Read More…

You can turn temp job into a permanent role if you know how to stand: The holiday season always brings with it a flood of new jobs. This year, for example, U.S. retailers expect to hire a total of 740,000 seasonal workers. But as the name “seasonal worker” implies, these jobs don’t last forever. Come January, many of these temporary employees will be on the hunt again. The good news is you don’t necessarily have to be one of them, according to Sanjay Sathe, CEO of RiseSmart, which provides outplacement solutions. Of course, it depends on the type of the company and the strategy of the company, but [turning a seasonal job into a permanent job] is definitely something people should consider,” Sathe says. “I do believe a lot of big companies, without saying it publicly, treat this as a filter mechanism, whereby they bring a lot of folks on board. While doing that, they cherry-pick the right talent [to keep after the season ends].” …Read More…

6 Ways to reduce your work induced stress: Having trouble sleeping? Feeling anxious on your commute into work? Experiencing regular headaches? You might be suffering from work-related stress. You may not realize it, but stress is serious. It can lead to all sorts of ailments and drains billions from the economy every year. Unfortunately, work is one of the most common causes of stress, with 65 percent of adults saying that their jobs cause them “very or somewhat significant” stress. ..

Or do you rank among the majority of workers in America, dissatisfied with your job and not sure what to do about it? Research shows that less than one-third of workers in the U.S. are engaged in their work, and this figure is even lower for millennials. The overwhelming number of dissatisfied workers suggests that people are having trouble finding the right careers. …Read More…

Take time to negotiate stop by and visit  RecruitAlliance.

The interview isn’t over until you’ve sent your follow-up notes: Some people believe the interview is over once they’ve shaken hands with the interviewers and left the room. That went well, they think. Now it’s time to wait for the decision. And perhaps it did go well – but perhaps one or two other candidates also had stellar interviews and followed up on their interviews with thank-you notes. So here’s the question: When is the interview really over? The answer: not until you’ve sent a follow-up note! If you don’t believe that a follow-up note is important, read this article and note that, according to CareerBuilder, when a candidate does not send a follow-up: …Read More…

Before accepting a job offer, Take time to negotiate: We can all agree that the interview process can be stressful and exhausting. You spend weeks, sometimes months, going through many rounds of interviews, tests, and background checks. If you’re concurrently employed, you do all this in secret, slipping out of work and trying not to spill the beans to coworkers and friends. You cannot wait for the process to be over so that you can stop all the sneaking around. Often, when a job offer comes your way, it’s delivered by a human resources representative or the hiring manager. They call you on the phone, note a few quick stats like starting salary and vacation days, and ask if you’ll accept and what date you can start. …Read More…

Why every company should implement a leadership development program in 2017: It’s hard to believe that 2016 has nearly come to an end, but what better time to start thinking of your organization’s learning and development programs than with the fresh start of 2017 on the horizon? Companies implement thousands of programs not only to ensure that their employees are happy and thriving, but also to attract the talent they need to continue succeeding. And yet, for most companies, the thought of developing a new program to implement in the new year can seem daunting. However, I think one program that all organizations should consider launching in 2017 is a formal leadership development program – one that brings a level of middle management to the organization. …Read More…

If you are looking to hire, stop by and visit  RecruitAlliance.

A look back at the recruiting trends of 2016: As 2016 comes to a close, here is a look back at some of the biggest recruiting trends of the year that are sure to continue into 2017: The Candidate to Consumer Shift: The current job market is a candidate’s market, and that is particularly true for top talent. This means it has become more and more difficult for employers to attract the talent they need. “Attracting and retaining talent will remain a challenge as top candidates experience an increase of competitive job offers, along with better salaries and opportunities,” Joanie Courtney, former senior vice president of global market insights at Monster and current COO of EmployBridge, told SHRM earlier this year. ….Read More…

What to do when you have more applicants than you can handle: Recruiters at large or particularly well-known companies are often blessed with a very unique problem: They have almost too much interest from candidates. Without even going out of the way to highlight their employer brands, some organizations receive hundreds, or even thousands, of applications due to name recognition, prestige, or brand alone. …Read More…

For the best tech tools, HR may want to look to the consumer side of things: It’s an exciting time for HR technology, with new software, systems, and platforms arriving at a steady pace, but unfortunately, few HR departments get to take advantage of the most interesting of these developments. Instead of being on the cutting edge of new technologies, many HR pros are limited to systems that serve their core functions, like HRISs, ATSs, payroll software, and so on. …Read More…

Keeping distracted employees engaged this holiday season: The most critical business outcomes for today’s organizations are sales/revenue, customer service, and employee productivity, and during the holiday season, these become even more critical for industries like retail, hospitality, manufacturing, and transportation and fulfillment. For these organizations, the holiday season can represent almost 30 percent of annual sales,” says Theresa Damato, vice president of global marketing at talent management tech company Saba. …Read More…

What job seekers want to know about working with recruiting agencies: I recently received a question that is important for all job seekers to consider: “Should I work with an external recruiter, and if so, how do I do that?” If you’ve never tried it before, enlisting the help of a placement firm can be a confusing proposal. It’s tough to know where to find a recruiter, how to begin, and what to expect. The good news is, working with an external recruiter (a.k.a., a “headhunter”) is not as hard to do as it seems – you just need to know a few things first. …Read More…

Here ‘s how to structure your interview process to maximize the chances you’ll make the right hire: Making a new hire requires a lot of time and effort—which is no big secret if you’re a recruiter! But it’s not just recruiters dedicating their resources to hiring: Everyone from hiring managers and potential team members to senior leaders and receptionists can be called in to participate in some aspect of the interview process. Yet for an activity that touches so many people, interviewing is not always given the respect it deserves. …Read More….

Hiring for start-up. How to find the right Candidate: At big companies like Google, there’s a constant influx of resumes—candidates clamoring to work for a company with billions of users, top salaries, and free food. But for early-stage start-ups, resources are tight. You can’t necessarily pay market salaries or offer fancy perks—or even guarantee that your company will still be around in six months. Many great candidates have never even heard of you. And yet you want your first team members to not only be exceptional individuals, but to live and breathe your start-up. … Read More…

How to successfully job search during the holiday season: Many job seekers have told me that they want to put their searches on hold during the holidays because they don’t believe they will see results during this period. This is a mistake! Despite the common opinion, many companies continue with their recruiting efforts during the holidays. While you might need to be more patient, there is a huge benefit in leveraging this slower time. With the proper strategy, it is possible to land your dream job – which will surely lead to some extra holiday cheer! As a former agency and in-house recruiter, I can tell you that January is one of the busiest hiring months of the year – and the hires made in that month are being interviewed in November and December! …Read More..
