This One Trait May Save Poor Leadership and the World

According to Gallup’s 2017 State of the American Workplace report, poor managers cost the U.S. economy an estimated $500 billion annually.  If you read my post, “Why do employees quit?” I clearly identify that employees quit their boss, not their job.  This is further corroborated by a 2018 Randstad study which showed that 60% of […]

The Danger of “Netflix Recruiting”.

As I wander through the hundreds of movies and television shows that Netflix offers me I lament that I still can’t find anything to watch.

How to Scientifically Evaluate A Video Interview

Much has been discussed lately about automated video interviewing and its quiver of benefits designed to improve the hiring experience for both the recruiter and job candidate.  Video interviews, as some studies suggest, reduce time-to-fill, cost-per-hire and improve hiring manager satisfaction.  However, as with phone screens or the face-to-face interview, the virtual interview process can […]

1 Smart Way to Fix Your Phone Interviews

The purpose of pre-screening job candidates, through such measures as phone screens, is to save the hiring manager’s time by not requiring them to meet with unqualified individuals.  I have spoken to many  hiring managers who suggest that they know within five minutes of meeting a candidate whether the candidate is a good fit for […]

Why Do Employees Quit?
