How Visual Thinking Improves Writing

How Visual Thinking Improves Writing | Facilities Management Careers | Scoop.it
“ Younger kids typically love to draw and aren’t too worried about the outcomes of their artwork — until they get older. By the time they’ve learned to read and write, art takes a back burner to academics, primarily because of what most schools prioritize. Over time it becomes harder for kids to think in pictures the way they once did. But what if students were encouraged to think in pictures alongside words?”

"The following are several key factors that professionals look for and that are typically incorporated into an EVP:

• Career development and advancement: Candidates are not only looking for the initial job, but the one that follows. If companies provide that opportunity, their retention likely will improve.

• Compensation: Compensation is a heavily weighted factor in any hire. It needs to be market-competitive and should articulate performance incentives.

• Work-life balance: When searching for jobs, professionals attempt to gain some equilibrium between work and life by considering commute and location. Other considerations include telecommuting and flextime policies."

"When Xerox started using the score in its hiring decisions, the quality of its hires immediately improved. The rate of attrition fell by 20 percent in the initial pilot period, and over time, the number of promotions rose. Xerox still interviews all candidates in person before deciding to hire them, Morse told me, but, she added, “We’re getting to the point where some of our hiring managers don’t even want to interview anymore”—they just want to hire the people with the highest scores."
