The Auld Lange Syne of 2020

Even though it’s now January, it’s impossible to Men-In-Black zap ourselves into thinking that last year didn’t happen. Proof positive—I’m writing this in December of 2020, knowing that this will be published sometime in the future. “Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it”—that’s an old adage my mom loves telling me, and I think we’re all in agreement we’d rather not repeat 2020. Auld Lange Syne translates to “for the sake of old times” – so, for Auld Lange Syne, what lessons did we...

Repurposing Consumer Marketing Tactics for Recruitment Marketing Tactics in A Post-2020 World

Prior to the extraordinary circumstances of 2020 – much of what we deemed “recruitment marketing” could reflect much of the same tactics we use to promote our brands. We wanted both consumers and job seekers alike to want to be a part of our brand – either through their pocketbooks or their desire to work for us. How we spend our time and money has drastically changed since March 2020, but how we market to those consumers and potential employees needs little changing to make a big impact. With ...

What (Trendy) Benefits Look Like in A Post Covid-19 World

My first job out of college was at a startup. We had a carnival style popcorn maker in the kitchen, a fire pole connecting the 1st and 2nd floor, kegs on Fridays, yoga classes every Tuesday and Thursday, and a softball team, and if you’re thinking, “Wow none of this can happen right now!”—you’re not wrong.Shared food? Germs.Fire pole with a bunch of hands? Ew.Close spaces with a lot of people exhaling while “finding their breath”? NOPE.We know our employees spend 40+ hours a week in their home a...

How Digital Tools Can Actually Impact the Efficiency of Your Recruiting Workflow Right Now

Nobody was quite prepared to scale down on the fly in March, and our HR and infrastructure teams did a great job quickly reacting when the world went home for a few months. While we are all waiting for us to get back to a {new} normal, we have an opportunity to be thoughtfully preparing to bravely re-enter this ever-changing world. When the switch gets flipped, and all systems are go—will your recruitment tools have a pipeline of candidates waiting for you? How can you make sure your tools are w...

How The Open Office Will Have To Change To Accommodate The "New Normal"

My office knows me as the open-air office evangelist. I saw our group go from a team-derived clique system to a cohesive family unit over the first month we acclimated to our open-air office, after years of being in cubes, separated by department. It was the eavesdropper in me, I couldn’t help myself but involve myself in conversations being had in front of my face, and that, in turn, became team synergy, camaraderie, and a fair amount of heckling.I do miss the heckling, to be honest, but we’ve ...

Why You Should Take A PTO Day When You’re Working from Home

While we are working from home week in and week out, the lines between personal and professional time blur together like the days of the week. In the last few weeks, I’ve found myself thinking “Oh great it’s Monday” only, surprise! it’s actually Thursday! (this has happened more than once). I find myself logging in earlier, and sending emails later, and checking my inbox when I’m walking the dog, reading the chats from my Microsoft Teams app on my phone while making a meal, and overall just obse...

The Keys to Creating a Good Work from Home Space

Before we launch into what makes a good work from home space, I want to thank all of those working essential jobs who are keeping everyone who is staying home safe and fed. And yes, I’m at home, not sure what day it is, but I’m here, day in, day out, so I’d figured I’d talk about how to set up an effective work from home strategy. Now that we’ve knocked that out of the way, let’s move on to other important aspects of your work from home strategy: Lighting: We’re all spending a lot of time in...

UK out of Unified Patent Court

The Unified Patent Court was a nice idea. Enforce your European patent with one single patent infringement lawsuit rather than going nation-by-nation. The UK was an integral UPC member — although always with some trepidation about handing power over to a continental court to decide issues of the UK marketplace.  The British Exit (BREXIT) from European Union (EU) raised some concerns regarding the ongoing viability of the UPC. However, UK leaders repeatedly indicated that they would continue par...

Can You Tell Me How to Get More Innovation Revenue?

Why Diversity in The Workforce Fuels Growth At a young age, we all embraced an unlikely iconic duo of a bird and a snuffleupagus without questioning their collaboration. Elmo’s age and species are up for debate, but his contribution to our emotional development as human beings would be hard to dispute. We idolized an entire street of monsters and grouches and adults and kids that lived in harmony, and maybe some of us begged our parents to move there. When you peek your head up from your cubic...

Global Recruitment Insights: Decoding What International Candidates Want

The first question I ask a future client is “Do you hire Internationally?” The second question I always ask is: “And where are you having trouble finding talent?” The primary focus of most companies tasked with hiring internationally is finding resources to fit the needs in each distinct market. Having a board to post jobs in Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Malaysia, the list goes on. Is it that easy? Well, short answer here: Sure, that works.

19 Kids and Recruiting: A Series About Recruiting Internationally

Imagine you have 19 kids. (This is just an exercise) (unless you actually do have 19 kids, and my hat goes off to you). Now one of them is allergic to strawberries. Another one absolutely hates turkey sandwiches. The youngest has speech therapy in the morning, and that afternoon, your eldest is in a piano recital. That’s just 4 out of 19, and you’re already feeling frazzled, aren’t you?  Now imagine those 19 kids are in reality the 19 countries where your company recruits, and you are the one ...

Indiana Jones and the General Data Protections Regulation

How GDPR is Changing International Best Hiring Practices Last May, GDPR came rolling through our lives like that big ol’ boulder in Indiana Jones. Getting out of its way, avoiding it, outsmarting it? No way. That thing was coming for you! And like Indiana Jones, we who recruit in the Euro Zone have to know how to operate with the boulder looming at our backs, threatening to squish us if we step out of line.While the penalties for not complying to GDPR are not actually at the “being smushed by...

Ironman heroics delivered by physically challenged woman who starred in ‘Amazing Race’

She offered up a batch of tropical flowers as a sacrifice to Madam Pele, the goddess of fire and volcanoes and the mythical creator of the Hawaiian Islands. She laid the hibiscus blooms on the lava rocks along Alii Drive in Kona, near the finish line of the Ironman Triathlon. Please, she implored to Pele, let this race happen without any elemental influences. Sarah Reinertsen didn’t need any more obstacles. In the 40-year history of the Ironman – a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile...

Cambridge is believed to be the first university to have used the avatars for classroom teaching.
