The Future of recruiting mobile: It wasn’t even half a decade ago that top-of-the-line smartphones were out of the question for most. Today, we reach for our phones as a reflex. Faced with an unanswered question, a moment of free time, or virtually any unmet need, we turn to our smartphones. Because we shop, pay, talk, meet, and learn on our phones, it only makes sense that we would start to look for new jobs on our phones as well. Indeed, the future of recruiting is mobile.

A quarter of respondents said more than 75 percent of their employees would not be working in traditional offices by 2020.

One common scenario is someone making a mistake at a young age, learning from the experience, growing up, and moving on. Unfortunately, their legal record doesn’t move on with them. …Read More…

Your company can get top talent for less- by earning great reviews: When it comes to employees, you get what you pay for. Offer competitive salaries, and you’ll have a better chance of attracting the best.
