Fight Employee Burnout With These Tips

Thu, 09/21/2017 - 08:34

Every job can be stressful in its own way, but burnout takes that stress to an unhealthy, extreme level. The Mayo Clinic defines it as a state of physical, emotional or mental exhaustion combined with doubts about your competence and the value of your work. As workers increasingly become tied by their smartphones to their jobs at all hours of the day, stress resulting in burnout may be particularly bad for younger workers. A study by the American Psychological Association found that millennials and Gen Xers report a higher level of stress than any other generation and appear to have difficulty coping.

Fake Job Ads Are Evil

Wed, 09/20/2017 - 07:55

It was in February. I was near the end of an onsite interview for a job with a large technology company and I asked the interviewer when he needed someone to start. He told me he did not have a job open right now but will probably need someone in April or May. Huh? I had gotten the interview through a staffing agency so I called the account manager at the agency immediately after the interview to let him know what I had been told. The time frame for his client to hire was news to him and he was no more happy about it than I was.

Wed, 09/20/2017 - 07:28

Indeed has always been a poster child of efficiency and minimalism. Through the years, while competitors became increasingly cluttered, Indeed stood, and continues to stand, firm to the ideal that less is more. Adhering to Google’s design playbook, it turns out, is good business for search engines of all kinds.

Drive Sourcing Through The Power Of Periscope

Wed, 09/20/2017 - 07:00

What goes through your mind when interviewing for a job? One question that I hear time and time again is, how do I know if I will fit in? What is the culture of the company or department? How do you answer that as an interviewer? Well, I can speak to it of course, but the best way is to give a candidate a tour during the interview? Provide a peer interview and Q&A? Absolutely! But what if we could also use that “tour” and those Q&A sessions as a part of our social recruiting arsenal to proactively recruit and source new talent? That’s where Periscope becomes a great tool to drive traffic to our jobs and source candidates proactively. Periscope lets you broadcast and explore the world through live video.

What if LinkedIn Disappeared?

Tue, 09/19/2017 - 14:00

If LinkedIn disappeared tomorrow, depending on the day, it honestly might take me a few hours to notice. Not to diminish LinkedIn as one of the number one platforms to source from, but it’s just one of many tools sourcers use, and not always the best one for a given job. For argument’s sake here are a few things that would immediately come to mind after discovering LinkedIn’s disappearance.

5 Signs of a Terrible Manager

Tue, 09/19/2017 - 10:35

When we discuss companies with a high employee turnover, we need to look at a range of factors that might be contributing to this. It might be a fault with recruitment, or perhaps the wrong employees are being hired. Maybe certain workplace processes make daily work frustrating, so employees look for opportunities elsewhere. It might also be that a company’s attitude towards flexibility and autonomy is too rigid for an increasingly independent workforce.

Leadership’s Secret Sauce: Take Care of the People Who Take Care of the People

Tue, 09/19/2017 - 08:42

When the door opened a young man walked in buried into his phone. He did not look up, which I thought strange because in the outer office there were 3 customers and 4 of his workmates. He proceeded to his desk still looking into his phone. He sat down turned his laptop on and started work.
