I must admit that I am slightly late on this one! Sorry!
I thought I would do something slightly different…
Rather than choosing a topic to cover myself, I have asked my trusty tribe what they want to read about, what queries they are having about the industry and what they would like to explore.
With that in mind, questions were submitted from a wide range of people, from Internal Recruiters to CEO’s…
Here are the top 3 questions, written and chosen by you, the reader.
Have you ever had two employees who are constantly frustrated by one another?
The normal approach to resolve employees conflicting is to 'knock their heads together' and tell them to get on with it.
But have you considered a more probing approach? Have you considered tapping into the psychology of the two employees styles?
Luckily, you don't have to be a Chartered Psychologist to tap into your teams psyche and solve this common company culture issue.
I once started a job where on my first day nobody spoke to me, I muddled through set work and ate lunch on my own.
I wanted to quit within the first week.
A Leadership study of over 20,000 new hires showed that 46% of new employees didn’t stay with the business past 18 months of employment.
Having a good onboarding process will be a lot cheaper and easier than having a high turnover.
Have you ever asked yourself…
How can I keep my Sales Leader on this hot streak?
How can I ensure my Project Manager keeps this good form?
How can I build a team of winners?
Recent studies shows that the Winner Effect may actually be real, and this blog aims to show you how it can be utilised for business productivity and performance!
Create meaning. Create values
Employer branding and company culture go ‘hand in hand’.
The best culture and brands in the world are built on solid, meaningful values that every single employee believes in.
Branding - whether it’s corporate, personal or employer branding. It’s all about creating meaning.
And the best place to start creating meaning is by building rock solid values that you, your employees and even your customers can relate to.
In previous blogs we have discussed how to find and capture top talents’ attention and drive traffic to your site. But what happens after that?
You've managed to stand out from the crowd and attract the right people. You've even managed to get your job advert to go viral (thanks to your superstar recruitment employees!). The hard work is done right? I'm sorry to say, you’re wrong…
We are always looking at recruitment from a business point of view: what’s the best way to attract candidates? How can we make our process faster and more effective? What can we do to make interviewing easier for our Line Managers?
But what about the candidate? Why aren't we striving to amaze them?
Let’s begin with some recruitment statistics from the candidates’ perspective:
What is social recruiting?
For me, social recruiting is the process of attracting, engaging and retaining talent through the use of social networks (both online and offline!)
The multi-platform dilemma:
Facebook, Pintrest, LinkedIn, Twitter, Flickr, Vine, Google+ and yes many, many more!
How are you supposed to master all of these platforms?
Do not fear! I've written this blog to guide you through the biggest platforms used for social recruiting (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Google+).
How is your employee referral programme going? For a large number of companies, it’s a struggle.
However, employee referral programmes can be one of the most powerful weapons an internal recruitment or HR department can have.
Here are some of the benefits that show why an employee referral programme is so great:
In my last blog post; Content, Content and more Content! I touched on the fact that the talent pool is shrinking at the very moment demand is at an all-time high. This issue is not industry specific but universal. In response, candidate’s attitudes and expectations are changing. A great pay packet is no longer enough, they want their work to be meaningful and rewarding.
It is also important to remember that by providing incentives, recognition and challenges will help keep your current employees engaged and boost productivity, loyalty and recruitment referrals.
