  How To Use Social Media In Your Recruiting With 3 Easy Steps
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2016
Social media can be a terrific recruiting tool, but only if you understand your audience and the laws that formally and informally govern networks. Most organizations have figured out by now that blasting generic job postings over Twitter doesn’t generate much targeted interest. The better approach requires a bit more legwork but is certainly worth it in the end. Locate where your targets already hang out Most organizati...
 
  HR Needs to Look in the Mirror
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2016
Last year, a colleague emailed me a report by McKinsey and the Conference Board. Called False Summit: Why the Human Capital Function Still Has Far To Go, the paper eschewed the notion that companies and their leadership teams have achieved the holistic and systematic view of human capital strategy that is required in today’s business world. Using research conducted across three methods: a global survey, a literature review,...
 
  Variables Impacting Recruitment Strategy
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2016
Segmentation is nothing new to our colleagues down the hall in marketing, but when it comes to recruiting, it’s a relatively new phenomenon. Just a few years ago, recruiting messages were “one-size-fits-all.” We agreed on company verbiage we wanted to share publicly and then shouted those words to anyone who would listen. Then, of course, we’d be stuck going through thousands of resumes, many of which were completely unsuitabl...

  Start Your New Hire's Year Off Right
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2016
In her book You’ve Only Got Three Seconds, Camille Lavington writes that people form a permanent opinion of you based on a very brief initial impression. The same phenomenon can occur when fresh hires show up to their first day at a new job. If things go well, they may return home brimming with enthusiasm for this next phase in their life. And if things don’t go well, a seed can be planted. This seed whispers that they've made...

by Alexandra Levit - Dec, 2015
Company culture seems to be all the rage. An online search can reveal nearly 100,000 news articles about it in 2015 alone. As a small-business owner, you may read about the revolutionary moves made by companies like Google and Zappos and think, “There’s no way I can do that.” The good news is, you don’t have to. A desirable company culture can be well within reach—just by being yourself and staying true to your organizat...
 
  Small Businesses: The Three Things You Need To Know About Millenials
by Lindsey Pollak - Dec, 2015
They’re here! The millennials, that is. If you don’t have one working for you now, you probably will soon. That’s because millennials, also known as Generation Y, now comprise the largest share of the American workforce, according to the Pew Research Center, and by 2025, a full 75 percent of the U.S. workforce will be millennials. These numbers present a huge opportunity for small business owners. Millennial employees as a...
