Workology

Cutting Through the Clutter of Internal Communications

15Five

How well are you communicating your most important company information to employees? The answer has as much to do with the medium as with the message. And most of the time, that message isn’t being received. The problem of disconnected communication channels at work isn’t a new one.

Being a Better Recruiter Isn’t About Being More Efficient, It’s About Being Different

Linkedin Talent Blog

I’m now working with a bunch of staffing professionals and corporate recruiters who (along with their employers) want to be more competitive. I suggested the best way to change is by becoming different, not by trying to be more efficient. Why is being different more important? Because it can result in improvements of 50-100% or more in 6-12 months. It’s almost impossible to be 10-20% more efficient in the same timeframe.

EmployeeConnect

If we’re to assume that someone with no prior knowledge to what a “wellness program” is, I’d say their guess at it is something to do with helping you live longer.
