#WorkTrends Recap: Smooth, Efficient Recruiting for SMB

For small and medium businesses, there are two objectives in terms of recruiting and hiring that can be powerfully answered by Cloud-based systems. Given that there are so many options out there, companies need to focus their objectives on packages that meet specific critical needs.

This week on #WorkTrends,  host Meghan M. Biro and her special guests Guillaume Vingtier, Go To Market lead for WorkConnect by SAP and Jeff Rosenberg, Co-Founder and Partner at WideOpen, a customer strategy consultancy discussed the ways small to medium sized organizations can become more efficient, competitive and timely in their recruiting processes.

Here are a few key points Guillaume and Jeff shared:

  • Culture-fit isn’t just a buzzword. It’s critical to move beyond thinking of candidates as just a job description.
  • Small enterprises can put benefits in place that larger enterprises can’t like working from home
  • Managing multiple job boards can be a huge time sink and for SMBs, every minute counts.
  • Organizations that don’t take advantage of, or properly manage, social media platforms are hurting their talent alluring power.

Most HR specialists agree they want to get better at talent acquisition. In a 2016 SHRM survey of more than 2,300 HR professionals, respondents said recruitment was their top business/HR challenge, ahead of compliance, employee training and compensation/benefits. Finding the time to implement these leading strategies is the bigger challenge.

This week on #WorkTrends host Meghan M. Biro and #SHRM17 Blogger, welcomed special guest, Tony Lee, Vice President of Editorial for the Society for Human Resource Management and a recognized authority on recruitment trends. They discussed a variety of important aspects related to effective recruiting. Tony also gave the TalentCulture community a sneak peek of #SHRM17, happening in New Orleans on June 18 – 21.

Here are a few key points Tony shared:

  • It’s one thing to gather HR metrics. But you need analytics to gain useful insights
  • Analytics can tell the story of your employee recruitment program.
  • Recruiters: Be transparent with salaries. Post salaries with your job postings
  • Retention is highest in environments where employees are happy to come to work every day.

#WorkTrends Recap: Gravitas. Do you have it?

Gravitas has become the newest “it” factor in separating oneself from the pack. People with gravitas stand up, stand out and simply STAND when others may crumble or hide.

As you take stock of your professional brand, ask yourself, “do people take me seriously or do I sabotage myself?” Do you need to bump-up your “cred” in order to move things forward in your professional life?

This week on #WorkTrends host Meghan M. Biro welcomed special guest Deborah Thomas to discuss what distinguishes someone with gravitas from someone who lacks it.

Here are a few key points Deborah shared:

  • Key to keeping any relationship strong is good communication.
  • Partnerships are a great way to provide secondary offerings to clients. Utilize partners’ strengths to satisfy client needs!
  • Philosophical fit is critical, but don’t underestimate the value of bringing in new and different perspectives
  • Don’t be afraid of Partnering. Look at all options to try to bring a great product to market

#WorkTrends Recap: Employee Engagement

Employee Engagement. This is a workplace topic that is steady and strong, but why do so many brands fail at this all important relationship?

Research has shown time and time again, the myriad benefits of employee engagement to both employers and employees. According to the Wharton School of Business, they found that brands are three and a half times more profitable when employees are engaged versus brands with average engagement levels.

This week on #WorkTrends host Meghan M. Biro and her special guest Kevin Sheridan discussed the topic of employee engagement and the pros of having better engagement and cons of neglecting it.

Here are a few key points Kevin shared:

  • The three keys to employee engagement are: Outline expectations, be authentic, get to know the people you work with
  • Managers need to make people feel valued at work
  • It’s essential to be clear on the team culture and values with candidates or misalignment will surface later
  • Simple way to create employee engagement in the workplace, start asking people: “What’s your passion outside of work?”

#WorkTrends Recap: Science of Uncovering Dishonesty at Work

People lie. It’s an ugly fact of life. Lying in the workplace can be detrimental to morale among other things. Often times people lie in ways that make it difficult for others to recognize. We get a “gut” feeling, but that is just that… a feeling and not evidence.

This week on #WorkTrends host Meghan M. Biro was joined by Phillip Maltin, attorney-at-law and developer of The READ System, to discuss the intricacies of lying in the workplace and how to actually use science to identify who is lying.

In this fascinating conversation, Phillip shed some light on a few common misconceptions about detecting lies and  Here are a few key points that Phillip shared with the community:

  • Forming good questions is a good skill to use when attempting to detect lying.
  • Nervous behavior is not just a window into a dishonesty. It’s also a window into honesty. You have to ask the right questions
  • The “D” in R.E.A.D. is doubt. Doubt your conclusions until you’re satisfied as to what someone is saying.

#WorkTrends Preview: The Leadership Gap

According to this week’s guest, one of the most sought-after leadership coaches in the world, Lolly Daskal, being successful as a leader takes persistence and patience—and the investment of a lot of time and energy. It, also, takes the willingness to get up day after day, putting in long hours and hard work, navigating the roadblocks, as well as the detours as they come. But during the journey and in the end, it’s so worth it!

On Wednesday, April 12 at 1pm ET, Lolly and #WorkTrends host Meghan M. Biro will be discussing what Lolly has identified as the essential elements every great leader needs to align with and practice every day.

Among her many accolades, Lolly was designated a Top-50 Leadership and Management Expert by Inc. magazine. Huffington Post honored her with the title of The Most Inspiring Woman in the World.

After decades of coaching executives all around the world, she knows what she is talking about and this is one chat you don’t want to miss.
