Is There Danger in Hiring the Cultural Fit?

By | February 21st, 2019|

We’d be naive to say that working alongside like-minded people isn’t initially easier. Yes, the first day for a new employee entering an environment that feels entirely comfortable can make the on-boarding process seem simpler for all.  Does that first day comfort, though, translate into long- term employee performance? The data suggests that it might not. In fact, if it is true that nearly half of new hires fail in the first 18 months of employment because they cannot assimilate [...]

Workplace Trends Candidates and Hiring Managers Shouldn’t Ignore

By | February 19th, 2019|

I might describe the Forbes list of 19 Workplace Predictions for 2019 as, both, on the mark and completely off-the-wall.  I agree with some points and disagree with others. The list was proactive, but, more importantly, brought up workplace trends that may scope the work of candidates looking for jobs and hiring managers looking to fill positions during the upcoming year - Trends For Job-Seekers: There is a workplace trend in candidates advancing their job searches through their own personal network.

By | November 19th, 2018|

When you accepted your current job, you were prepared with data to defend the salary you were demanding. You researched your market value with sites like Glassdoor. You came up with a figure that you felt was reasonable and, at last, your boss agreed. What about now? Not feeling the love?

Evaluating a Counter-Offer: Should You Stay or Go?

By | October 23rd, 2018|

It may be impossible to find objective advice for how to respond to a counter-offer to stay at your current job. Your current company wants you to stay. The new offer is exactly what you’ve asked for during the interview process. What do you do? And, as importantly, what are the risks (or opportunities) in making the choice about whether to stay or go?

Holding onto your top performers takes a strategic approach – particularly in a labor [...]
