The Danger of Using 1099 Independent Contractors to Avoid Obamacare

Employers are scrambling to find ways to avoid the dreaded "employer mandate" of the healthcare reform law, but those who think Independent Contractors are the answer should think again.

The employer mandate portion of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requires employers with 50 or more full-time employees to provide healthcare coverage to their employees. Even though the mandate doesn't kick in until 2014, employers are preparing…

Key Selection Criteria: When less is more

Malcolm Gladwell's book, Blink: the power of thinking without thinking, (Penguin, 2005) provided me with some fantastic insights highly relevant for recruiters, specifically when Gladwell explores the ‘less is more' syndrome.

Pick Up the D@#$ Phone

“I don’t make cold calls,” said the seasoned senior sales rep in a meeting I attended a few months back. She went on to talk about all of her great warm contacts, and her good intentions for leveraging more business by reaching out to them. Her manager and the other leaders present said nothing and did nothing, thus endorsing this belief and behavior. Three months later, this very tenured, very talented salesperson has no new customers and has barely sustained the level of business she had…

Start recruiting them young

It’s the Little Things in Recruiting…

When training new recruiters I often find they are looking for a secret that unlocks the mysteries of selling.  Most of our recruiters at least initially, are a little disappointed when I tell them I have no “secret” to share.  Instead we focus on things like treating the customer like they are our only customer.  How well would you treat your customer if you only had one?  How responsive would you be with only one customer?  I’d like to share a small, seemingly insignificant example of how…
