Has the College Degree Lost Its Luster?

Employers Consider Alternative Ways to Vet Applicants

Screening Via Social Media Profiles

Benefits and Risks of Using Social Media Data When Hiring

The meteoric rise of social media has created new opportunities and challenges in the workplace, affecting each and every department in different ways.

Making Job Descriptions Stand Out, Onboarding for Retention and More!
February 2019

8 Tips on Making the Job Description Stand Out

A few short and simple tweaks can have a powerful impact.

Nowadays, the majority of job descriptions look the same. They have the same structure and use the same phrases as if HR professionals had read the same manual, “How to write a job description.” Therefore, it’s not surprising if they get the same, unsatisfying results.

Fortunately, there are some ways you can enrich and enhance your job description to make it stand out.
Onboarding for Retention in a Competitive Hiring Market

Simplifying internal business processes always pays off.

When an onboarding process at a company is strategic, flexible and user-driven employees are more engaged and thus stay longer, allowing a business to save money.

We’ve just sent several of our managers to training.  How can I reinforce that training, now that they are back on the job, to make sure it sticks?

You’re smart to be proactive. Too often, we hear, “I sent my employee/manager to training, and I don’t see that their behavior has changed at all.” Unfortunately, many organizations leave it completely on the employee to incorporate what they have learned, with no support from their manager or the company. According to a survey done by Training magazine, training expenditures in 2018 were $87.6 billion.
