HR Bartender

There’s an interesting dynamic in today’s workforce. It’s the proliferation of the gig economy , which is an environment where temporary positions (such as freelancers, contractors, and consultants) are common.

The Tim Sackett Project

Most recruiting done today is inbound recruiting. This is organizations posting jobs everywhere, people seeing these jobs and then applying. These candidates are coming ‘inbound’ to you in some form or fashion – into your ATS, into your email, showing up at your front door, whatever it takes for them to find you.

When we talk about wellness programs in the workplace environment, the type of keywords that should appear should be yoga classes, weight loss programs or even health screening check-ups.
