Why Good People Can't Find Jobs -- What You're Up Against - Vault: Blog

Why Good People Can't Find Jobs -- What You're Up Against - Vault: Blog | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

There's a serous disconnect between companies and potential employees in the United States—one that may be holding our entire economy back. And, contrary to the conventional wisdom, it's a problem that has been caused—and can only be cured by—companies. So says Peter Cappelli in his 2012 book Why Good People Can't Get Jobs. 

 

In Cappelli's view of the state of the modern employment landscape, there are several issues preventing companies from finding the talent they need—and none of them are related to the conventional cries from businesses and the media about a lack of talent in the pool, or the failure of the American education system to turn out people with appropriate skills. 

Martin Gysler's insight:

The problem, reported in this excellent post, is experienced by many people around the world, not only in the United States. It explains, inter alia and in simple terms, why the automatic filtering does not work.

 

Peter Cappelli points the finger of blame at two major, and interrelated, factors: the process that companies are using to identify potential hires, and their refusal to offer training or onboarding time for new employees.

 

This comment who say: "As long as computers are doing the filtering, human judgment and risk-taking is minimized, and employees are expected to already come with a full and complete toolkit, we will live with a paralyzed, constipated economy that does not facilitate moving promising candidates into new positions." is another problem, who brings another element who complicate life from job seekers.

 

Cappelli concludes with the observation that: "The time has finally come for employers to develop a more realistic sense of what their own interests are with respect to workforce issues and what best serves both their interests and the well-being of society as a whole."

 

In my opinion, our system needs to change its HR approach that can have fatal consequences for the future of the economy.

 

What is your opinion about it?

Jacob Maddox's comment, May 11, 2013 10:35 PM
Cappelli's view is right on. The HR systems of most US companies, which could be also said of global international businesses is riding the fast train to failure. Computers will not allow a fantastic potential employee to get in front of the decision makers of the position, if their resume does not match the computers screening process. In my opinion we need to get back to old fashioned screening of meeting either in person or through live web session to analyze and determine the capacity and skill sets that matter to the company.
Martin Gysler's comment, May 12, 2013 5:07 AM

Why Your Company Needs A Social Business Strategy

Why Your Company Needs A Social Business Strategy | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it
Andrew Grill talks about why you need a Social Business Strategy.

 

So impressed was I with a recent report from Altimeter group on Social Business titled “The evolution of social business – six stages of social business transformation”, that I decided to do a multi-part blog post. The first post can be viewed at lc.tl/asb1. In this second post, I am looking at the section of the report that looks at defining a social business strategy. The Altimeter report looked at 698 companies in medium-large sized companies, as well as deeper interviews with 26 executives and social strategists at 15 companies. The Altimeter definition of a social business strategy is the following: the set of visions, goals, plans, and resources that align social media initiatives with business objectives.

Martin Gysler's insight:

This post from Andrew Grill (CEO of Kred) is based on the recent report from Altimeter group on Social Business titled “The evolution of social business – six stages of social business transformation”.

 

Andrew analyzing the situation very well, and gives us an interesting and "simple" approach, which is important in a business strategy in the social business field. If you have already a good strategy for your business, maybe this post will provide you some useful informations more.

Promoting yourself in the digital age

Promoting yourself in the digital age | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

The owner of one of my favourite cafes recently started using Twitter and Facebook. However, when you interact with her business online, you get very little sense of the woman behind it. Her online footprint is polite but, frankly, it lacks personality. In reality, she is a larger than life character who epitomises her brand. She lives and breathes her cafe — and is well known (in real life) for her food, unique decor and events.

She told me: "I just don't want to be in the spotlight. I want people to interact with my business, not with me. I don't want to be the centre of attention."

Fair enough. However, in a world where consumers are bombarded with marketing and advertising messages, some experts believe we are living in an age where personal branding is vital for success. And that means NOT shying away from the spotlight.

Martin Gysler's insight:

"I just don't want to be in the spotlight. I want people to interact with my business, not with me." ... Perhaps it is not the best way to create a successful social networking activity.

 

Today, people want talk with people, not with impersonal business names. This is a fact and should animate every business owner to give a personal touch to their online activities.

 

Have you the same feeling about it?

Six interesting examples of gamification in ecommerce

Six interesting examples of gamification in ecommerce | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

The video game industry is worth more than $100bn worldwide, so it's no surprise that businesses are using gamification to try to boost sales.

The idea is that by adding gaming elements to the sales process, such as small challenges and rewards, you can increase customer loyalty and advocacy.  

 

As in every game or competition, the participants have to be motivated by a worthwhile reward. It’s also true that the greater the reward, the more you can ask people to do to earn the reward.

Gamification is a very important tool to obtain better engagement from followers, customer or clients.

Stop Requiring College Degrees

Stop Requiring College Degrees | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

If you're an employer, there are lots of signals about a young person's suitability for the job you're offering. If you're looking for someone who can write, do they have a blog, or are they a prolific Wikipedia editor? For programmers, what are their TopCoder or GitHub scores? For salespeople, what have they sold before? If you want general hustle, do they have a track record of entrepreneurship, or at least holding a series of jobs?

 

These days, there are also a range of tests you can administer to prospective employees to see if they're right for the job. Some of them are pretty straightforward. Others, like Knack, seek to test for attributes that might seem unrelated, but have been shown by prior experience to be associated with good on-the-job performance.

Martin Gysler's insight:

101 Sure-Fire Ways to Make People Hate Your Marketing

101 Sure-Fire Ways to Make People Hate Your Marketing | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and love is in the air. But even if there isn't someone special in your life right now, as a marketer, that doesn't mean you still can't get into the lovin' spirit. If you're creating marketing people love, that is.

 

But just like there's more than one way to skin a cat, there's more than one way to make people hate your marketing guts.


So we thought we'd round up a pretty hefty list of ways (101, to be exact) that you can create the polar opposite of lovable marketing -- how to make people hate your marketing. So double check your marketing tactics against this list to ensure you're being as lovable as you possibly can to your prospects and customers. Because love is all you need ... and probably some leads.


Warning: Sarcasm and snark abound.

Facebook Pages Are a Bad Investment for Small Businesses - Forbes

Facebook Pages Are a Bad Investment for Small Businesses - Forbes | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

In my last four posts I’ve shared some of the lessons that I’ve learned from helping set up lullubee.com, a new business that makes and markets kits for making crafts. After we launched the site and figured out how to take ordersand ship products, the next task we faced was to get more visitors to the site, and ultimately more sales. In the next few posts I’ll cover several of the techniques we implemented, but in this post I’ll focus on Facebookmarketing.

 

The first thing we did was to set up our Facebook Page, as recommended in Facebooks “Four Steps to Business success on Facebook“.

 

Once you set up your page, you need to get users to visit it and, hopefully, to “like” it. The reason you want people to like your page is that your posts will then appear on that users news feed. Over time this will allow you, according to Facebook, to start “building loyalty and creating opportunities to generate sales.” The first method to get likes is to promote it on your own website using Facebook social plugins. As this costs nothing, you may as well do it, but the percentage of visitors that click on these is typically very small. The second is to purchase Facebook Ads that persuade people to visit your page and to like it. The irony of spending money to promote our Facebook page instead of our site was not lost on us.

Catherine Luense's curator insight, January 25, 2013 6:11 AM

I agree with Forbes! I feel like FB pages are getting more expensive to own and operate. I make more connections on Twitter per day then I do on FB in a week. Every since I converted my Profile into a page it has been a nightmare! When I try to connect with a person or service, upon login, I am directed to their ad campaign page. It is getting so annoying! G+, Pinrest, and Twitter have become my marketing method of choice. Has anyone noticed this as well?

Martin Gysler's comment, January 26, 2013 10:56 AM
Catherine thank you for your information. It's interesting to hear that you had problems with the conversion of your Facebook profile. I had never heard this information, maybe because I've never done this work for me or another. With regard to marketing opportunities, they may vary depending on the target audience. To say that Twitter is better than Facebook or another platform, remains difficult in my opinion.

Instead of Making Resolutions, Dream

Instead of Making Resolutions, Dream | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

Forget the small stuff, for now. What's your big objective?

 

As January approaches, and we bid another year adieu, our thoughts turn to making resolutions: this year I will lose that extra weight, drink less alcohol, give up sugar, get out of debt. All worthy goals, but why do we perennially return to resolutions that seem based on the idea of fixing all the things we're doing "wrong?"

 

You can't know what resolution you need until you know what your objective is. In photography, the resolution of the image is entirely dependent on the output you want. If you're looking at an image on your computer monitor, 72 dpi (dots per inch) is fine, but if you want to print that image, you'll need a much higher resolution, say 240 dpi. If you then want to make that image into a billboard, you actually need a relatively lower dpi, because the further away you are from it, the more your eyes will blend the colors for you (think of a Georges Seurat painting).

It’s so true. I think that we should consider this advice. If you’re not a dreamer, and if you can’t respect your commitments, this post will give you few interesting tracks.

10 Problems at the Start of Innovation

10 Problems at the Start of Innovation | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

Many things can go wrong during the process of creating new products, services or business models. Let me give you ten examples from my own experience. You may recognize this as an array of all too familiar scenarios. If so, rest assured, you are not alone.

 

1. We´re not sure what we want.

Ideation of new products and services happens ad hoc, usually at a time when a problem arises or the turnover decreases suddenly or when a competitor enters the market unexpectedly. The first question is: “What now?” Then the creed becomes: “We’ll get Smith to create a list.” From this moment it becomes clear that any current strategic business plans no longer provide much direction for innovation. Ultimately, the lack of clear directives leads to random thought processes and frustration. Frustration because the management, further down in the innovation process, decided to concentrate on something else than what you were focusing on before.

Creating Order From Chaos: 9 Great Ideas For Managing Your Computer Files | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

It’s frustrating isn’t it when you can’t find that file? When you’ve searched every folder imaginable on your computer, and somehow it got lost….or worse, deleted. Now, there are excellent search tools for Windows that allow you to find your files, but they only work if you know the name of the file. And you don’t want to open up a program to find every file and folder that you need. It’s just nice to have things neat and easy to access whenever you need them.

 

I’ve put together a list of 9 things you can do to manage computer files and get the most out of your computer. Because that’s its purpose – to be moreuseful, not less useful. But computers are often more complicated in some ways when they’re not set up and used properly, which is essentially counterproductive.

Seventy-six percent of employees don't want their boss's job. So what's their career path?

 

Imagine that you've invested years of blood, sweat and tears at work, and have successfully climbed the corporate ladder, only to wake up one day and realize that you sort of hate what you're doing.
