We got a panel of experts together — those in the talent acquisition trenches — to discuss some of their top recruitment best practices.
When it comes to OFCCP and EEO compliance -- and the slew of new regulations, proposed regulations and new and updated enforcement protocol employers will soon be required to shoulder in order to have a compliant recruitment process in place -- you may not be doing as well as you think. Here's why.
When CareerBuilder recently surveyed employers as to the biggest productivity killers in the workplace, nearly one in four respondents (24 percent) cited meetings. (Cell phones/texting ranked first, in case you’re wondering.) Useless meetings can take an especially harsh toll on small businesses, where people are already wearing many hats and struggling to make every minute count. Recognizing that time and effort could be better spent on other matters, 17 percent of employers surveyed said they’ve taken action to limit meetings.
They may be at work, but that doesn’t mean employees are actually working. According to a new survey from CareerBuilder, more than 1 in 5 employers estimate their employees are only productive for five hours of the day, thanks in large part to distractions such as smart phones, the Internet, and other co-workers. Of these distractions, mobile phones and texting habits present the biggest obstacle to productivity.
Any size workplace runs the risk of acquiring a toxic culture. When such an atmosphere permeates a small business, however, the effects can be particularly dangerous. You depend on your close-knit team to function as a harmonious unit. Discord or discontent can spread quickly and impact operations profoundly.
An effective small business owner needs to be alert to infiltration. Unfortunately, clues are not always obvious, and busy leaders are often so tied up with other things they fail to recognize subtleties.
For U.S. workers, getting paid has a price. A new survey from CareerBuilder sheds light on just how much money workers spend getting to and from work. According to the survey, U.S. workers spend an average of roughly $276 per month – for a grand total of $3,300 per year – on activities related to the simple act of getting to work.
