Yay! You’ve found your dream candidate! But in a fast-paced and competitive market, there’s a real risk of another company snatching them away before you can make an offer. That’s where closing calls come in to save the day.
In this blog post, we’ll explore why closing calls are a key point in the hiring process and provide three tips to help recruiters and hiring managers effectively “close” a candidate!
For most employers, the ability to drive business growth directly corresponds with how motivated your workforce is.
But how do you motivate your team? Usually, this involves incentivizing your team to increase referrals and productivity. However, not all employers can afford consistent monetized rewards, such as a referral program, to incentivize their team.
So, the million-dollar question: what can you offer instead?
Does your workplace have (truly) inclusive benefits and policies in place?
Prioritizing LGBTQIA2S+ inclusivity in your workplace is crucial. Research shows that “1 in 10 LGBTQ workers have left a job because the environment was not very accepting of LGBTQ people” (Human Rights Campaign, 2018). This loss of talent and equitable opportunity sheds light on the importance of a supportive, inclusive workplace and company culture. Without these things, employees – especially employees from historically marginalized groups – suffer the consequences.
That’s why implementing LGBTQIA2S+-inclusive benefits and policies is so critical – it can help foster an environment where all employees feel respected, valued, and supported while boosting retention and attracting a diverse pool of talent to your company.
Yes, Pride is a time for self-expression, visibility, and unapologetic authenticity. It’s an opportunity to commemorate the history of the LGBTQIA2S+ community and honour both the progress that’s been made collectively and the resilience of individuals.
But for some, it’s quite different.
It’s essential to recognize that not everyone experiences Pride through a happy lens. While it’s a time for celebration, it’s equally important to acknowledge and support those who may not find it a “happy” occasion.
Some individuals within the LGBTQIA2S+ community face unique, personal challenges that can make this time difficult. Pride can evoke feelings of vulnerability, sadness, or reflection for those who have experienced discrimination, rejection, or struggle with their identities. It’s crucial to create space for these individuals to express their emotions and be heard.
Performance reviews are an essential component of many organizations’ human resource management processes. They provide employees with feedback on their performance, help identify opportunities for improvement, and inform decision-making around promotions, bonuses, and, in some cases, terminations.
But performance reviews are not immune to bias; when left unchecked, bias can lead to unfair and inaccurate evaluations that can negatively impact both employee and employer.
In this blog post, we will share how to identify different types of bias that might be present and explore some strategies for mitigating bias in performance reviews.(more…)
If you’re an employer, you know that attracting top talent is key to helping your organization thrive and flourish! But what you may not know is that the job market has changed; today’s candidates are looking for more than just a paycheque.
Gone are the days when candidates would accept just any job with a decent salary and benefits! Today’s job seekers are looking for a workplace that aligns with their values, provides a supportive and inclusive environment, and offers opportunities for growth and development. In other words, they want a career, not a job.
So, what can you do to attract top talent and make your organization stand out?
In the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the labour market experienced what we know now as the Great Resignation. Over 47 million people resigned from their jobs during 2021. That’s a lot. Employees started to re-evaluate their priorities and left their jobs in search of positions elsewhere with better pay, career growth opportunities, and relief from burnout.
