The result is Hotjar. By now, Hotjar has gained worldwide traction and “staked its claim on the future of CRO,” …Continue

It starts at the top!
This is a tough subject for me to wrap my head around because, while I understand that there is a wage gap, and gender diversity is an issue in some companies (especially in the executive ranks and corporate board seats) I have only encountered it once in my career.

There are a lot of small companies and small recruiting firms out there trying to recruit talent, but don’t have the resources or money for expensive applications. I know that often the challenge is to get by with very little.
However, one of the most valuable assets for a recruiting function is the resumes we have on file (our resume archive). These resumes might be from applicants to specific jobs or just people who have been sourced by the recruiter. …

Intellectual Property Brokerage: Headhunters (like me) don't sell Intellectual Property, but we do sell introductions and connections with Inventors and Innovators who create valuable IP (Intellectual Property). How does one become a broker of Intellectual Properties (via referrals) and how does that work? How should one be paid? I often think that my ability to refer…Continue

The Baby Boomer generation, once the largest age group participating in the workforce, is coming of age. I don't mean that in a John Hughes movie sort of way. I do mean that they're approaching their desired retirement age. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, every…Continue

I have been doing some research recently to look at ways to enhance our communications strategy. I don't want Greenacre to be THAT type of agency.... You know the one- 50 cold calls a day in order to pick up a job, the one all their clients try to avoid (until they get caught by a bogus name intro or a hidden number call!).
We want to add value to our…Continue

Being under pressure will not benefit…Continue
