Giving Back: How Every Firm Can Make a Difference with Corporate Philanthropy
Whether your firm is already involved in corporate philanthropy or just starting out, it’s always a great time to give back.

In fact, a company’s social and environmental commitments are a deciding factor for 64% of millennials when choosing a workplace. And another 64% wouldn’t take a job at a company that didn’t have strong corporate social...

How to Hire for Soft Skills
Whether you’re a busy recruiter or a hiring manager, bringing on the right people takes creativity, resourcefulness and (sometimes) a little luck.

Four Ways Recruiters Can Cure the Job Search Blues
To many job seekers, the job hunt can be just as much fun as a root canal without novocaine. According to a recent survey conducted by Nexxt of over 1,400 job seekers, nearly half (48%) are frustrated with the job search process, leaving them discouraged and less likely to continue applying for open positions. Of course, every job search has its peaks and valleys, but the process shouldn’t be so soul sucking that candidates throw in the towel and stop looking all together. And while some...

REPORT: Remote Work Can Bring Benefits, but Attitudes Are Divided
It used to be that people punched in and worked away at their desks all day, but times have changed. Whether it’s to avoid the commute, leverage the quiet focus of working at home or simply to stay in pajamas all day, recent research shows that 70% of people work remotely at least once a week. Many employers support and encourage remote work, as well. Flexible policies let employees choose where they will feel most productive and let companies hire the best talent for the job regardless of...

The Impact of Online Reviews: How Feedback Leads to Change in the Workplace
Back in the day (and by that I mean, oh, just a few years ago), employers had a tough time finding out exactly how their staff felt about their jobs.  Sure, there were some tried and true sources of info, such as “overheard at the water cooler” and “got a survey back from HR,” but if you wanted real, unfiltered, honest responses — well, there was nowhere to go. The internet has changed all that, of course. Want to know what your workers really think? Go online. You’ll learn plenty...

Radical Transparency: How Much is Too Much?
If you type “company culture” into any search engine, you’ll quickly see the term “radical transparency” rise to the top. First coined in the early 1990s by stock market guru and hedge fund founder Ray Dalio, it’s become a hot topic over the last few years as more and more companies adopt the concept. Radical transparency is exactly what it sounds like – when companies are brutally honest about the good and the bad… and make it public. When it works like it’s supposed to,...

Women in Tech: How to Attract and Retain Top Talent
A little-known fact is that when computer programming was emerging as a field in the 1940s, women were in the forefront of this new technology. In fact, the first programmers to work on the US Army’s enormous ENIAC computer to compute ballistic trajectories were all women. Software was seen as less important than the male-dominated hardware field and was considered easy work, similar to typing, and so suitable for women. Today, however, things are very different: women make up less than a fifth...
