That is a fact.

And time for the annual Class of 2013 survey from Achievers and ConnectEDU! This trend has held steady despite the Bureau of Labor Statistics telling us average tenure has held at 1.5 But more than anything, our yearly survey tells us that Millennials are inexperienced—just like every generation of recent grads that have come before them—and the “special treatment” they require is a factor of changing technology and workplace expectations seen at all levels.

Insperity

Take a good look at your company and see how many of these your HR department is (or isn’t) doing now. Quick! What’s your HR department doing right now?

Transformation - Saying It Is the Easy Part

NoExcusesHR

Is HR there to pick up the pieces as leaders begin to quiver and shake at the slightest hint of a required change? I''ve been doing a lot of thinking about transformational leadership and what role Human Resources should play when an organization is committed to undergoing change in a meaningful way. Does HR move through the process along with the others who are impacted by new expectations, new goals, and ultimately a new and more effective corporate culture?

RPO and Contingent Staffing: What’s the Difference?

Cielo HR Leader

One issue with these types of agencies is that there are clones (competitors) at every corner providing the same services. My qualifications at the time consisted of a high school diploma, several gen-ed courses, working as a steak and calzone cook and tutoring under-privileged students at the local elementary school. Many businesses will partner with multiple staffing agencies at any given time in order to expedite the recruitment process.

Industry Experts on Recruiting, RPO and True Partnership

Cielo HR Leader

Krista de Torres, Lead Recruiter: I learned more in my first six months at Cielo than I learned in four years working at a hospital! I wanted to have the same relationship with my client and hiring managers that I did at the hospital—which is also why I had no interest in a position at a staffing agency. Kaci Seals, Lead Recruiter: I came to RPO after recruiting for more than 10 years at large academic health systems.

Insperity

For example, if your employees are also paid tips, you need to track those tips, too, since employers are required to make up the difference when the base wage plus tips does not equal at least minimum wage. Specifically, the Department of Labor says: “Each employer shall preserve for at least three years payroll records, collective bargaining agreements, sales and purchase records. The records may be kept at the place of employment or in a central records office.”.

How to Pinpoint Your Company’s Key Players

Insperity

No matter how hard you look at your org chart, you won’t glean much from names, titles and reporting relationships alone. Key employees exist at all levels of your organization. Building a staff of well-recruited, well-trained employees is only the beginning of your company’s journey. Things change – constantly. And being able to deal with that change and emerge a better organization is the goal of any business.

More Visas Could Help You Hire Coveted Candidates

Insperity

Anyone who lost that lottery was given a shot at one of the remaining 65,000 visas. They’d also have a better chance at getting a return on the time and effort it takes to go through the application process. Trading an all-at-once release of the visas for a periodical offering could help, but the legislation being drafted by Congress may not include such a provision. Leaders on Capitol Hill are drafting legislation that would make significant changes to U.S.
