Does your Interview process match your Work Environment?

So we’ve all seen it.  A candidate goes 2 rounds of behavioral interviews, everyone loves them then they get into the actual role and fizzle.  Whether it’s a disconnect with overall fit or a overall lack of tangible skills for the position, it’s always an unfortunate position to be in.  The real question, is how can you ensure this happens less often or better yet prevent it altogether?

Don’t Hide your Company Culture, Flaunt It!

Yesterday, I was able to be part of something pretty cool.  I was invited to SkyZone in Dedham to play some really fun trampoline dodgeball.  But that wasn’t the really cool part (well not all of it).  What was really cool was it was a company wide outing of a friend of mine that I was able to finagle my way into.  The do competitive fun events like this every month or so (it was F1 racing before that) and every employee gets involved.  Not only are these great team building exercises but…

Make it a Productive Snow Day!

[Note: This was written as we are getting pelted with snow and freezing rain for the past two days in Boston]

 

As a kid, I loved snow days.  It was a free day to play outside with friends and just simply not doing anything productive.  It was just pure fun.  The problem was that instead of doing homework with some free moments during the day, I would always wait till the last minute and have a race to the finish to get it completed.

It is becoming increasingly important in today’s economy that every company needs to try and do more with less.  And in no place is it more present than in the recruiting sector.  Recruiting organizations consistently are asked to do more with their ever decreasing set of resources.
