    Management Decisions - The Death of the 9-to-5
by Alexandra Levit and Jenna Connour - Apr, 2015
Working flexible hours. Telecommuting. Job sharing. These are all examples of flex schedules, which are becoming increasingly popular for many companies and businesses. In the coming years, as millennials become the predominant age group in the workforce, the traditional 9-to-5 work schedule may soon meet its demise. Instead, flex work schedules are set to become commonplace. To learn more about this topic, Jenna Connour chats...
 
  One Day Hiring? What a Concept!
by Alexandra Levit - Jun, 2015
John Sullivan is one of the most respected HR thought leaders in the world. I have been reading and citing his ideas forever, and love getting his articles through my ERE.net subscription. John tends to put forth ideas slightly before they catch on in the mainstream, and that’s why my interest was piqued when he introduced the single-day hiring process. We all know that hiring takes too long. By the time your organization g...
 
  Will the Internet of Things Displace HR?
by Alexandra Levit - Jun, 2015
The latest tech trend is the Internet of Things (IoT), and if you’re like me, you didn’t know what it meant until you were reading a blog post one day (possibly this one). The IoT is what will happen when any device with an off/on switch can be connected to the Internet and to other devices. Technology analyst firm Gartner has predicted that in the very near future, there will be nearly 30 billion connected devices, forging...
 
  How You Reject Candidates is Just as Important as How You Hire Them
by Alexandra Levit - Jun, 2015
Once your first choice has accepted the job, how do you close the loop with the other candidates who have interviewed? My first piece of advice is to contact them and let them know of your decision. This may sound obvious, but it’s shocking how many organizations don’t do it and just leave candidates hanging. If a candidate takes the time to interview with you, you at least owe her the courtesy of a phone call or email. Here a...
 
  Essential Steps to Getting Repeat Business
by Alexandra Levit - Jun, 2015
Once you've gone to all the trouble to seal the deal, here are five things you can do to help get repeat business from your customers. Here's the story of two companies. I bought a ton of products from both this year. Company 1’s offerings were stellar, but it had a laissez-faire attitude toward the significant hurdles I faced during the procurement process. Company 2’s product line was less impressive, but the folks t...
 
  Getting Your Employees to Speak Your Culture's Language
by Alexandra Levit - Jun, 2015
If your employees aren't acting the way you'd like them, take a close look at your company's culture and use these tips to get everyone on board. In building a new house, one has the opportunity to interact with a lot of contracting businesses. Most of these are small and locally owned. Usually, the business owner wins over the customer by being knowledgeable and friendly, and by making promises about his firm’s reliable...
 
  Health Alert: Should You Ban Handshakes in Your Office?
by Alexandra Levit - Jun, 2015
With Ebola and myriad other diseases in the news and flu season just about to kick off, some people are calling for a ban on the handshake. Is that the right move for your business? The first piece of business advice I was given that stuck was to greet a new person with a firm, enthusiastic handshake. Since that day 16 years ago when my boss said my shake had to be “more confident,” I've been telling countless college g...
 
  Tactics for Reinvigorating a Stale Culture
by Alexandra Levit - Jun, 2015
Even the best company cultures can get old and stale. Keep your culture fresh, and your employees engaged, with these strategies. In an earlier article, I discussed how to build a culture of innovation. Some of the tips included avoiding micromanagement, keeping stress level to a minimum, and encouraging your people to take risks. These methods can definitely re-energize a stale culture, but there are other avenues you mi...
 
  Build a Strong Reputation – Communicate Minor Achievements
by Alexandra Levit - May, 2015
Build a strong reputation by making the most of minor achievements. In my seminars, I am fond of discussing the importance of perception. You could be the smartest, most talented individual your organization has ever hired, but if people don’t like you or value what you have to offer, you’re dead in the water. Fortunately, it is relatively easy to project a positive image. When you meet people in person, make sure you...
 
  Can One Lazy Employee Destroy Your Team?
by Alexandra Levit - May, 2015
Peer effects are directly responsible for the work ethic of one team member mirroring that of another. Is your coworker setting a good example, or a bad one? And how is that affecting the teams’ productivity? Those who have reading my posts for a while know that I have a special interest in the intersection of economics and business, as well as the intersection of neuroscience and business. Recently, I corresponded with Ey...
 
  Hiring Managers: How to Deal with Unresonable Expectations
by Alexandra Levit - May, 2015
Until you can hire a cyborg, you’ll have to settle for flawed humans. The 2014 Job Preparedness Indicator study conducted by the Career Advisory Board confirmed previous reports that a skills gap exists at all levels of U.S. employment. Only 7 percent of hiring managers said that “nearly all” or “most” job seekers have the right combination of skills and traits that their companies need to fill open positions. This belief...
