Article_CorporateCultureBeginswithTheRecruitmentProcess_1024x512

Corporate culture is the lifeblood of a company, it’s who you are. Crafting a strong corporate culture can be the difference in a company’s survival. An employee will work harder and fight for a company if they believe that that company will fight for them and if they believe in the organization as a whole. But where does corporate culture begin? That answer is simpler than most companies make it, recruiting. Recruiting is the seed from which your corporate culture grows and that includes how you treat candidates throughout the hiring process.

Article_HireMoreFailuresToHaveAnInnovativeTeam_1024x512
Innovation and failure are often bedfellows. Many of the great intentions and inventors of our times left behind a trail of failures in the path to their victory. One of the reasons for this is that you can only fail if you try, and any person who tells you they have never failed is either lying or has never taken a big risk. The people who made their mark in any given industry are always those who aren’t afraid to fail which opens up the possibilities of greater success.

Good on Paper: Employer Brand & The Candidate Experience

Article_GoodonPaperEmployerBrandTheCandidateExperience_1024x512

Recently, my blogging has been centered around a theme of New Year's resolutions. But what comes after the New Year? Valentine's Day. So, in the name of love, I pivot.

I’m going to call back from not too far back in my past to my dating life (ah, remember dates?). I, like many of your friends, met my partner the old-fashioned way, using an app I downloaded on my iPhone. Tale as old as time, I tell ya.
