Meet Gary G.
Recruitingnevada.com (one of the many Greenspun Media Group websites) gave life to our new campaign at PREVIEW 2011.  Gary G., the newest member of our team handed out logo stickered bananas and advice, “If you’re going bananas trying to find quality employees, post your job on recrutingnevada.com.” Although recruitingnevada.com has been around for nearly a decade, like many companies, our brand awareness needed a boost.  Our talented creative team came up with several innovative ideas. ...

Anticipation for Preview 2011 is brewing.  This annual Las Vegas Chamber program and trade show at Thomas & Mack brings out the best of the best.  Although after 10 years of attending, it feels to me a lot like an annual family reunion/therapy session.

In-The-Moment Mentors
As I was reading this week’s issue of In Business Las Vegas and turning the pages of the special section Women to Watch, it occurred to me that many of these women have unknowingly been my mentors. I have benefitted from in-the-moment mentorship that happens when you are doing business or socializing with someone you know, like and trust.   For example, Darcy Neighbors, founder and CEO of CIM Marketing Partners gave me some great leadership advice as I was about to take the reigns as president...

Caregiver Business Summit
If you are a company with employees in Nevada, some are likely to be among the 250,000 plus caregivers in the state.  Having personally been a caregiver to both children and senior parents while employed, I understand the demands placed on the “sandwich generation” caregivers. As a manager, I also understand the strains placed on a productive work team if a member of that team is not able to be fully engaged.  Did you know the annual cost to businesses for employees of all ages who are caregivers...

The Buck Stops Here and Here and Here
By: Bill Granda, Regional Director, Paradigm Associates Ask anybody in any organization where the buck stops, and it’s a rare organization where you’d find someone answering anywhere other than the CEO’s office. It seems logical; it’s certainly a long held belief. But is it really functional in today’s business environment? If the buck stops in the CEO’s office, isn’t the corollary that it doesn’t stop with any other senior managers, or middle managers, or supervisors, or anyone...

$2.5 Million in Grant Funds Available

Motivation 3.0
Motivation 3.0 The Interview There have been countless articles, books, blogs and tweets about this deeply personal topic.  It really doesn’t get more personal than our motivation and emotions, so it seems a little arrogant to tell you what motivates us.  However, over the next several months with experts like Maslow, Pink, Buckingham and Drucker, I’m going to give it a shot, as it relates to recruiting and employee retention anyway. This week, we’ll take a look at Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy...

Strong Speaking Skills Can Advance Your Career

Recognizing Peak Performers
How many hours have you spent trying to figure out what drives peak performance? If you’re like most of us, you’ve probably invested more on driving the performance than in recognizing peak performers. Several invitations I received recently for recognition type events reminded me of the importance of a well deserved pat-on-the-back. It’s sometimes even more significant if an organization outside the workplace bestows the honors. Somehow it seems more objective, and the larger competitive...
