New website for Recruiter's to Network

Hey all, I have devleoped a website www.Recruiter2Recruiter.biz out of frustration for recruiters to post needs, post candidates and develop friends to network with.

I network with quite a few recruiters, but spent most of my time waiting for updated needs and responses. With over 100 jobs to fill around the country and some great candidates and nowhere to put them, i knew this could…

Mindset: A Powerful booster of the Performance of an Organisation.

Today’s economic and social environment is changing very rapidly; markets are increasingly global, deregulation is taking place everywhere, deflation (except for oil and its derivatives) is common in many sectors. The war for talent once again is at an all time high making it difficult to attract and even more difficult to retain talent. The shelf life of any product has dramatically reduced,… Continue

No time constraints. Just hot coffee and conversation without clock-watching.

Big brother is watching?

Ever feel like you’re being watched? No, not by the geek in tech that has nothing better to do than watch individual’s web traffic or read everyone’s work email. Bigger than that, like watching an ant farm and you’re one of the ants.

Well there might be some truth to that feeling after all, at least on the internet.

Work Meetings, Potato Chips, & eBay

One of the worst parts of being a virtual employee is that I rarely get

the opportunity to physically interact with my coworkers. I sit in my

office at home, and use the phone, Skype, Twitter, and Instant

Messenger to communicate with the other BSG Alliance folks. So, when I

have the opportunity to fly to Texas and have some face time, I always

jump at the chance.

Training and HR Technology--Retrain the Brain.

As aging baby boomers look to keep on working, producers of `brain fitness' software—aimed at improving memory and keeping the mind sharp—see an opportunity to pitch their products to employers. Software tools to keep the brain fit are headed to the workplace. The products have been making a splash in the consumer market in recent years as older Americans wrestle with memory loss and other cognitive declines.
