is no mention of how employees will be trained to be good "company ambassadors" rather than unhappy ones as the survey suggest that at least half of them are: unhappy with their employers.
And finally, Employee Referral Programs have a tendency to replicate what already exist in the employee population--namely a lack of diversity. What say you on that concern? Or is it a concern?…
tions. If you could take the time to answer this week's poll, I would really appreciate it! Every vote counts! You do not need to sign up and votes are completely anonymous!
Thanks so much for your input!…
terprise company? What industry is it in?
With that being said, number states "5. education and cultural fit"
The author says "None of these things are relevant to age, and you know it."
That's where I disagree. Age is relative to cultural fit. Especially if your working with a start-up company with individuals who may be in there mid-twenty's and thirty's.
A start-up would need individuals who see the long term goal. Something that gives them passion, not just a paycheck. This is a "cultural fit"
Now if it is a company that is 200 employees plus, age becomes less of a concern, but still noted. Why is it still noted? It's noted when your industry is on a constant change. If its a technical type of job such as computers or something else along those lines, age may still be a concern because there may be "newer" technologies and your "veteran" has skills used a decade ago, and hasn't adapted, therefore he/she needs to be looked over to pick up the younger individual who has more promise in a aggressively changing industry.
Although, I would like to say to the author that I understand your concern and its hard out there right now, and your right everybody does need a chance. But I think that's when the individual needs to realize Age may be a concern and use that to his advantage. You have nothing to lose. So blow em out the water during your interview process. GOD BLESS the baby boomer generation! 1<3
good somebody is when they're hired, and how long they stay is like having the meat delivery guy have to concern himself with whether or not the chef at the restaurant properly cooks the steak. That's the problem with many of the things on my list" they're pretty goods things, but we're not paid to deal with them, and if we ARE dealing with them, then we're neglecting our REAL job- putting quality butts in chairs on time and within budget.
