The sure-fire way to make temps give notice before quitting
Staffing Talk    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Sometimes temporary workers quit on you. They don't give notice; they don't fulfill the contract period. They just quit. In many employment circumstances, this reflects negatively on the employee, as it rightfully should. They'll get bad comments when future employees check their references, and it'll look weird on a resume to see a really short stint. But temps don't care about either of those things — they have enough references to go around and having short-term jobs is the nature of the beast. So all their quitting does is make you look bad to your client, and you're the one who has to deal with all the repercussions. More

Why LinkedIn will never kill the professional recruitment industry
ERE    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The article "How LinkedIn is eating the recruitment industry" suggested that LinkedIn, an essential tool in a recruiter’s arsenal, is actually going to devour the recruitment sector like an aggressive parasite. This is a very popular viewpoint — and an understandable one given the state of the jobs market, the focus on reducing recruitment spending, and the undeniably impressive growth of LinkedIn's revenues. Unless the psychology of a human being changes significantly in the near future, the vast majority of professionals are still going to want to interact with another person during the recruitment process, as it is still one of the most important decisions an individual has to make.

Employee retention crucial in 2013
Glassdoor    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
With the unemployment rate at the lowest it has been in more than three and a half years, employee confidence appears to be stabilizing. According to the Glassdoor Q4 Employment Confidence Survey, nearly half (48 percent) of employees expect their company's outlook to stay the same in the next six months — up eight points from the prior quarter. As company outlook steadies and perks are added, less than half (40 percent) of employees expect a cost-of-living or pay raise in the next 12 months. This remains relatively unchanged from last quarter. While at the same time, one in three (33 percent) of those employed say they will consider looking for a new job in less than a year if the economy stays the same or improves, and nearly one in five (18 percent) plan to look for a new job in the next three months.

Employee Benefit News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Whether it's a shooting in the workplace, a toxic chemical spill, industrial accident or natural disaster, the majority of employers are woefully unprepared to deal with a workplace crisis, says long-time crisis management expert Jonathan Bernstein. However, recent shootings at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., and a movie theatre in Aurora, Colo., as well as natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy, may have employers considering how they would handle similar situations.

ManpowerGroup advises US companies to diversify skills of business leaders
ManpowerGroup    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
ManpowerGroup says U.S. companies must build up the right business leaders needed to strategically evolve their business across fast-changing industries and regional economies, as the world's talent shortage ensues and the risk linked to business decisions in today's economy intensifies. "Developing leaders who can navigate volatility and build the flexible workforce needed to fulfill a business strategy is too often, today, just a concept versus a top priority for executive teams," said Jeffrey A. Joerres, ManpowerGroup Chairman and CEO. "The unpredictable nature of today's economy is forcing all business leaders to make quick, yet carefully vetted decisions. All business leaders must think very critically about the complex decision-making skills required by their executive teams in the Human Age." More
