Wouldn’t it be wonderful if every time an employee resigned, a new position was created or you were having trouble filling a critical role, you had the names of several suitable candidates right at your fingertips? That’s the idea behind a talent pipeline, a long-range recruiting strategy that minimizes the likelihood of hiring mistakes, saves time and money and helps organizations plan for their futures.

Six Traits of the Next Generation of Leaders

As large numbers of Baby Boomers transition into retirement, organizations have seen a leadership gap emerge as well. A recent study by CareerBuilder.com and Harris Poll found that corporate leaders are increasingly worried that there are “not enough good leaders within the organization.” It’s a worry with huge implications as the workforce ages and current leaders retire with few qualified younger contenders for their positions. Without good leadership, even the strongest company can flounder. However, regardless of what stage you are in in your career, there is good news; this… Read more

Is Your Company Irresistible to Jobseekers?

The best companies attract the best people. It’s a concept as irrefutable as the laws of gravity. Even in industries where employers typically have their pick of top talent, becoming an employer of choice has become increasingly important; more and more companies have come to understand that attracting and retaining top talent can give them the edge they need in today’s competitive business landscape. Research shows that creating an environment that supports, motivates and inspires people is often just as important as compensation. In the 2015 Employee Job Satisfaction and… Read more

The time has come to hire your first employee. Congrats. Now, what? While finding the right employee might seem simple- it isn’t.

This is business, not friendship. Nearly 40 percent of all job applications and resumes include bogus or inflated facts when not accompanied by a firm like ours (which vets for this type of stuff). Trusting your gut when… Read more

Your Employees ; Your Clients

I was doing some research on salespeople the other day and discovered there isn’t that much difference between selling products and selling a company from either end of the spectrum when it comes to sales people and HR specialists. Selling your company to a potential employee is just like a sales person sells a company’s products or services to clients. This said, the approach on either end of the spectrum should be the same. What do I mean? Well, let’s review; 1. Don’t over talk. You shouldn’t have to convince… Read more
