  Are You Properly Leveraging Your Retiring Boomers?
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2015
I've observed an interesting phenomenon. Condo sales in the town where my in laws live, West Palm Beach, were picking up. As someone who studies workforce trends, this is the opposite of what I expected to happen. The baby boomer generation, I thought, does not want to retire to Florida and play golf and mahjong all day. They want to stick around and keep contributing. It turns out I had only part of that right. Boomers wan...
  Another Sign The Job Market Is Improving
by Stacey Lane - Sep, 2015
Another cool thing about the improving job market? The focus on employee engagement and retention. I happen to think I know a thing or two about how to engage and retain the best employees. Why? Because they’re the ones who seek out a career coach to help them with their careers. (Pause for a moment and think about it…) I’m not a recruiting expert, nor an employee development guru, but what I’ve learned through my...
  Try On The Hiring Manager’s Hat
by Stacey Lane - Sep, 2015
In talking with a couple of hiring managers this week, we got on the topic of marketing materials. I heard the good, the bad and the ugly. The good? A cover letter from an under-qualified candidate that landed him an interview. You see, he’d done his homework and realized that his background in construction operations could benefit a creative services operations team. Smart. The bad? The candidate with less than...
  Virtual Reality is Coming to an HR Function Near You
by Alexandra Levit - Sep, 2015
Ever heard of Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One? It’s a novel that takes place in the year 2045. Human civilization is in a dark period, so people seek refuge in a virtual reality world called the OASIS.

  The Secret to Recruiting Millennials (Hint: It’s Not About the Money)
by Lindsey Pollak - Aug, 2015
By now I hope it’s no secret that millennials are looking for more from their work than just a paycheck and a place to spend their days. The perfect fit is all about culture. New York University and Harvard Business School graduate Phil Strazzulla (yes, he’s also a millennial) noticed there was a lack of detailed employer information available for young job seekers — and also no clear way for companies to showcase their emp...
  2 Reasons Employees Stay and 2 Reasons Why They Won't
by Mary V. Davids - Aug, 2015
I’ve heard time and time again employers complain ‘good workers are hard to find’. But really it’s not the availability of good employees that is the problem. The real problem is found in how a sustainable relationship is formed with those employees. Keeping a good employee is really not that difficult. There are only two factors essentially required for an employee to stay. 1. TRUST 2. LIKEABILITY Anything outside of the...

by Jean Cummings - Jul, 2015
OK, in my previous blog post I noted that employee referrals are the #1 source of hire in corporate America. This statistic comes out of CareerXroads Source of Hire Study for 2014.
