Top-Rated Workplaces: Culture
Culture — everybody talks about it, but how do you get it? And what does it look like? Culture can be one of the most defining aspects of a company, and great culture happens when company values are supported by behaviors, systems and practices. What that means is it’s not enough to just say what company values are — employees must feel those values in their experience of what goes on in the company day to day. Culture can also be a differentiator when it comes to talent attraction. Today,...

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. Not only do consumers think highly of brands that practice philanthropy and sustainability, but employees also want to work for those companies. 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...

2018: The Year in Search
At the end of each year, we at Indeed like to look back and see which trends in job search were on the rise and which were on the decline. The terms people search for can tell us a lot about the world of work and what’s going on in the minds of job seekers, as well as give us a glimpse into social trends worldwide. This year, Indeed’s analytics team scrutinized traffic in eight countries, from the United States to India to Australia. The diverse results give us an intriguing series of snapshots...

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. Candidates may have their hard skills locked, but what about things like team spirit, or conflict resolution? Work, at its core, is a social endeavor. Most of us have to interact with colleagues, clients or customers. And all the AI in the world isn’t going to change that: a recent Deloitte 2018 Global Human Capital Trends study shows there’s...

Once upon a Time: How to Use Storytelling to Attract Top Talent
People of any age can’t resist a good story, whether it’s the fairy-tale movies of our youth, sagas about wizard boys or Netflix binging. Stories make for wonderful entertainment — but they’re also an effective way to show potential candidates why they should work for your company. After all, today’s job seeker is often distracted and overwhelmed with options. Using storytelling that’s compelling and consistent helps build an effective employer brand — the messaging about your company...

Five Productivity Hacks to Save Every Recruiter Time
Recruiters know that time is a precious resource. Time with hiring partners and candidates is invaluable to achieve hiring success. But the many variables we juggle — changing requirements, shifting timelines and candidates’ busy schedules — can easily eat up that time. Simplifying applications, improving your processes and leveraging technology to help automate the repetitive tasks free you up to do what you do best: help people get jobs. Here are five ways to improve your productivity...

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...

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...

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...

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...

REPORT: Which Hiring Trends Are Steering the Future of Self-Driving Vehicles?
Things around us are changing. More than that, they are transforming. Take the refrigerator, for example. What used to simply be a cold box to store food in now has “smart” capabilities like voice recognition so you can add items to your grocery list. We ask other devices in our homes to tell us the weather without getting off the couch, we video chat with our friends halfway across the world and we can purchase almost anything we’d like online to be delivered within days or even hours to...

Reinventing Onboarding: A New Approach to an Old Routine
Sometimes there’s comfort in the familiar. We rely on the “tried and true” way of doing things. In the workplace, that kind of dependable consistency often continues for years. And maybe it works — well enough. But sometimes, the things we take for granted deserve a shake-up. At Indeed, we are constantly trying to innovate by rethinking old strategies. From engineering to sales to client success and beyond, we challenge every individual in our organization to evaluate what’s working...

But there’s a flipside. The increase in channels has led to an increase in the sheer...

On Your Mark: 5 Tips for New Managers
One of the most common conversations I have with top performers on my team centers around opportunities to become a manager. It’s great to be ambitious, of course, and I love to see people rise to the next level in their careers. But there’s an important reminder I like to give: The skills that are required to be a high-performing individual contributor are not always the same as those required to be an exceptional manager. This matters because bad managers can run off employees. In fact,...
