Hire More Failures to Have an Innovative Team

Innovation and failure are often bedfellows. Many of the great intentions and inventors of our times left behind a trail of failures in the path to their victory. One of the reasons for this is that you can only fail if you try, and any person who tells you they have never failed is either lying or has never taken a big risk. The people who made their mark in any given industry are always those who aren’t afraid to fail which opens up the possibilities of greater success.Now, how does one use th...

Remote Work: Recruitment & Retention Tool?

This is guest blog post from Jason David. Many of us have seen the predictions: office culture as we know it is never coming back. The effects of COVID-19, and the accompanying diaspora that have left so many workers performing their functions remotely, have many of us wondering if the strictures of 9-to-5 physical office presence makes as much sense as it seems to have made for so long. It even has employers wondering if offering prospective hires the option to work from home will be necessary...

An Easy Way to Make Better (and Faster) Healthcare Hires

It would be an understatement to say that healthcare workers are busy. For instance, nurses typically work 12-hour shifts and if they're open to changing jobs, the last thing they want to do is update their resume and search for a new opportunity at the end of a long day. These demanding schedules that healthcare workers face is one of the many reasons why it can be challenging to hire and recruit in the healthcare industry. Traditional hiring strategies can fail to fill these positions on thei...

The Benefits of Making the Non-Traditional Hire

Sorting through a large pool of candidates for one job opening can be exhaustive for hiring managers. It’s easy to just skim over resumes and latch onto familiar industry terms or verbiage that perfectly aligns with the role you’re hiring for. But when you sift through your list of candidates, try to look past what they’ve already done and towards what they are capable of achieving instead. Too often, hiring managers find themselves paying more attention to the prior achievements that candidat...

Best Practices for Conducting Virtual Interviews

The Benefits of Boomerang Employees

Once upon a time, employees and employers mated for life. Anything less would have been seen as disloyal - perhaps even traitorous. But with Millennials comprising such a large portion of the workforce, the shift from job to job has become far more commonplace. Additionally, the exit of Baby Boomer employees has the potential to create 10,000 jobs per day. Factor in the thousands of dollars it takes to recruit, hire, and train a new employee and the future of the workforce starts to look bleak. ...

Is Not Hiring Smokers Discrimination?

To hire a smoker or not to hire a smoker? That is the question! But is it discrimination not to? The answer is surprisingly yes and no, and primarily depends on where you happen to live. It’s a debate that has been recently reignited as U-Haul—the company best known for renting you a truck to help you move—has implemented a nicotine-free hiring policy.

How to Tell Who’s a Good Fit and Who Is Just a Good Interviewer

When hiring a new employee, there’s always the risk that they aren’t as good of a fit as you thought. Someone confident and charming who seems great on paper might not actually have applicable skills they need for the position. Someone’s ability to successfully complete an interview may not reflect their ability to do their job. A successful interviewee might just be more personable or do better under pressure.
