What if there was a rift in the Space-Time Continuum or, more believably, a change in the federal government’s employment law policies that made it impossible to get rid of any employee who is on your payroll six months from today? How would you change the way you look at your present workforce? Who would you […]
Because we live in a world of “Helicopter Parents” (parents who hover over and are involved in everything their children do) and because the number one reason teenagers quit or get fired is for not being able to work the hours required, when you find a teen you’d like to hire, it makes sense to contact […]
  Most employees cannot tell you their employer’s mission statement and, if the rank and file don’t know what the mission statement is, what good is it? Your employees need to know what you stand for and you have to make it easy to remember.  Here are some examples from employers who got it right: SAPP […]
Quit concentrating on how to avoid hiring the wrong people and focus instead on how to find and hire the right ones. The primary goal of most hiring managers and hiring systems is to screen out the least suitable applicants.

Promoting from within motivates your entire staff and it’s nice […]
If you don’t know the answer to this question, how can you possibly expect to get any better? If you want to improve and/or excel, you need to ask your boss, your coworkers, and your employees questions like: What could I be doing better or differently? How could I improve __________? Is there anything I […]
  You can promise the rock a reward or you can threaten to punish it, but, no matter what you do, that rock just ain’t gonna move. The only way to make a rock move is to pick it up yourself and move it out of your way. (*In this analogy, “rock” is code for a […]
You may want to try this idea from one of the frontline managers I worked with recently…  When she gets an applicant who is working elsewhere, she does a brief telephone screen first and, if she is still interested in the applicant, she goes to that person’s place of work and has him or her wait on […]
If your organization doesn’t have a well-known, positive “employer brand” (if it is not known as a great place to work) you undoubtedly are paying a penalty. Employers with great reputations can both spend less on employee recruiting and pay less than top dollar to hire the best. If your employee brand is not positive, […]
