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...

Top-Rated Workplaces: Veterans
When we hear “support the troops,” we often think about men and women deployed overseas. But those in military service face challenges not only in active duty — there are challenges for them at home as well, especially when they leave service. In 2017, there were 20.4 million veterans in the US, of whom 4.1 million served at any point from 2001 forward. And up to 360,000 people leave military service each year. This large labor pool has valuable skills such as leadership, agile decision...

Target, Reach and Engage with Job Candidates Using Indeed Targeted Ads | Brand
No matter the industry, businesses need employees with varied specializations in order to operate effectively. For example, while tech companies require software engineers, they also need to hire graphic designers and marketers, among many other specialists. Likewise, big grocery chains certainly need cashiers and managers — but in the 21st century they also need data science experts. But if employers need a wide array of skill sets, what happens when their industry just isn’t associated...

Top 3 Outdated Recruitment Habits to Break Immediately
The recruitment landscape isn’t the same as when we were first starting out in the workforce, some 20, 10 or even five years ago.

So, without further ado, here are the top three outdated recruitment habits we need recruiters to break once and for all. Post and...

REPORT: What Are the Hardest to Fill Healthcare Jobs?
As a nation, Americans are facing serious health challenges. Heart disease remains the number-one cause of death for both men and women in the US, and a host of other conditions pose a great risk — including cancer, diabetes, respiratory diseases and stroke. In fact, according to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), life expectancy in the US has decreased for the second year in a row — the first time this has happened since the 1960s. This is due...

Raising Minimum Wage: What’s the Big Deal?
In just two weeks, the pay bump that Amazon promised its 250,000 employees and 100,000 seasonal workers will go into effect in the U.S. and U.K. Earlier this month, Amazon announced that it will be raising its minimum wage to $15 per hour, regardless of employees’ full-time, part-time or seasonal status – just in time for the holiday season. But if this extreme bump in pay seems too good to be true, well, it kind of is. Workers deserve to be compensated with a livable wage, but when pay...

The Top-Rated Retail Companies to Work For in 2018
Today the “retail apocalypse” is a recurring theme in the media. Read one too many accounts of high profile closures and bankruptcies and you might think that there is no future for brick and mortar retail. But look a little closer and you might see a different picture — that we are living through a period of transition and (to paraphrase Mark Twain) rumors of retail’s demise are greatly exaggerated. After all, online retailers such as Warby Parker, Bonobos and Amazon have opened physical...
