Why Management Is Broken - And Why It Matters | SWGi Key Talent Connections | Scoop.it
"Being managed" is - generally - no fun. You can make it better.

SWGi's insight:

This is an excellent video - it really illustrates how Management 1.0 is out-dated, ineffective and paving the way for a major evolutionary step forward. Thanks to Richard for originally scooping this. Enjoy

Entitlement and Other Millennial Myths

Entitlement and Other Millennial Myths | SWGi Key Talent Connections | Scoop.it

Millennials have a stereotype far from the truth, as stereotypes generally go. They are said to be entitled and described as lazy, but what is the truth? They have the highest participation in volunteerism since the Greatest Generation (those born in the 1930s and 1940s). Millennials are highly educated, service oriented, and hopeful. The real question is: Why do Millennials have a negative reputation in the corporate world? They are perceived as being less motivated and productive than their parents or grandparents. Marriage, full-time employment, and fleeing the nest are not on the priority list anymore.

Getting Your Boss to Invest in Innovative Hiring Practices

Getting Your Boss to Invest in Innovative Hiring Practices | SWGi Key Talent Connections | Scoop.it

Most of you will know the importance of hiring top performers and so will your bosses, but when push comes to shove, time and time again, the hiring budget can lose out to other budgets in the race for funding. It seems like many businesses pay lip service and talk-the-talk about doing everything to find top talent but fail to walk-the-walk when it comes to stumping up hard cash to pay for your top talent attraction initiatives. This is backed up by recent research from Future Step, which showed that just 27 percent of US recruitment professionals have access to an R&D and Innovation Budget, even though 74 percent of HR professionals think their organization should be innovating more in recruitment.

5 Reasons To Hire a ‘B Player’

5 Reasons To Hire a ‘B Player’ | SWGi Key Talent Connections | Scoop.it

The default position among many employers and hiring managers is to only hire ‘A Players‘; that is, those who fit the job description perfectly or very closely—and to jettison the rest, which is those who fall below the grade, ‘B Players‘.

 

On the face of it, this sounds a like a perfectly logical hiring strategy, but why is it then that so many HR managers and recruiters find themselves in the position of having to try to convince hiring managers to accept a B Player? It’s because HR managers and recruiters are at the battle front of the global talent war and understand the realities, which are that in many shortage areas, it’s is a never-ending battle to find “grade A” talent.

4 Positive Alternatives to Firing Staff

4 Positive Alternatives to Firing Staff | SWGi Key Talent Connections | Scoop.it

What do you do when you face a failing employee? In the old days before the talent wars, you simply fired or dismissed the employee for performance following appropriate termination procedures and moved on to replace that worker.

But, it’s not as simple as that any more. Talent is scarce in today’s market, and there is no guarantee you can find a new candidate who can deliver better returns over the ensuing 12-month period than your failing employee in his or her current underperforming state or even in a repackaged and re-purposed state.

How to Get the Most Out Of Working with a Staffing Firm

How to Get the Most Out Of Working with a Staffing Firm | SWGi Key Talent Connections | Scoop.it

In a volatile and competitive job market, job security can be elusive. Statistics show that many job seekers take as long as seven months to find a new job. After a job loss, many professionals simply don’t know how to job search. They rely on common venues, such as online or print classified ads and job boards. However, the masses look there, too, and your resume will often be one of hundreds sent in response to a vacancy. Many employers don’t trust resumes they pull from a pile; they trust referrals. This is where a staffing firm or recruiting agency can get you in the door by matching you to the right employer.

How the “Old School” Approach Still Helps Your Job Search

How the “Old School” Approach Still Helps Your Job Search | SWGi Key Talent Connections | Scoop.it

We hear that the resume is dead. In-office working is dead. Traditional interviews are dead. And if you’re familiar with the publishing industry, you’ve undoubtedly heard that print is dead. Newspaper and magazine subscriptions and hard copy book sales are down; eBooks and digital subscriptions are up.

And although technology is certainly changing the way we operate, I’ve come to learn that not everything is “dead.” People, myself being an example, still enjoy buying and reading physical books. There’s just something about holding the book in your hands and turning the pages—some level of satisfaction that an eBook cannot give you.

11 Things You Should Do In The 15 Minutes Before A Job Interview

Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's curator insight, March 31, 3:31 PM

I particularly agree with the suggestion to arrive early; however, not too early.  After you have parked you could use the time in your vehicle to tune up your mood, motivation, and appearance.  Play one of your favorite songs that will put you in a good mood.  Take a breath mint, check your clothes, your face, and hands. Review your notes, and remind yourself what you have to offer the company.

 

If you arrive too early you could run into another person interviewing for the same position, or you could catch the hiring manager still at lunch, and you don't want them to rush on your account.

 

Do you have any other tips that you could offer everyone on how to use the time productively?  Would love to hear from you!

 

Until the next time....PS - Live on Purpose!
