What makes younger ... Read More

Why workers are leaving
Every time someone says “candidate experience”, I grow another grey hair. Here’s why.When a candidate applies for a job, they expect certain things from the role and the employer. However, those expectations aren’t always met once they sign on as an employee, with regard to anything from responsibilities and remuneration to career advancement and workplace culture.That disconnect – that failur ...

Helping Employees Help Themselves Image
Training is an investment. In the past, it made sense that employers should foot the bill – developing a staff member’s skills or helping them train to gain new ones helps the business grow and keeps it competitive amid industry change. The process can also keep staff loyal – when an employer assumes the cost of training, it reinforces an employee’s sense of their value to the workplace. And an en ... Read More
