4 ways to break the status quo of your recruiting process
Business 2 Community
Humans are creatures of habit; we all have heard it before (and definitely will again). We tend to lean on the side of continuing the same old processes, even if we know it is not necessarily the best method. Why? Perhaps it could be because we are better at being reactive rather than proactive. The workplace tends to move (at what seems to be) a hundred miles per hour. Since we are moving so quickly it can be easier to do damage control rather than take time to plan how to avoid mistakes. The good news is the proactive steps have already been taken — especially when it comes to streamlining your hiring process.

People join good companies but quit bad managers
By Greg L. Alston
I'm constantly amazed by how people who are charged with managing people try to make life much more complex and difficult than it needs to be. When people join a new company, they are usually excited by the new opportunities and believe in the vision of the organization. They choose the job based on the best fit with their world view. While the compensation plan is certainly one component of why people choose to work for you, it is rarely an element that determines whether they remain working for you.

Is your recruiting site mobile friendly?
Forbes

ACA, better economy spark surge in use of traveling nurses
Fierce Healthcare
An improving U.S. economy and an uptick in the number of Americans who have health coverage have increased demand for healthcare, which in turn has racheted up employment opportunities for traveling nurses, Kaiser Health News reports. Demand for experienced, temporary nursing staff has reached a 20-year high, and it's slated to increase another 10 percent this year as the number of hospital admissions rises, research firm Staffing Industry Analysts reports. Medicaid expansion may also drive the trend, as it has largely boosted hospitals' bottom lines, making them more apt to seek traveling nurses to cover staffing gaps.
