Who’s the Worst CEO in America? And Other Questions from This Week

Here's what you may have missed this week at work.This week, while you were busy wondering how you can become BFF’s with Paul Rudd, questioning everything you thought you knew about love, trying to decide between girlfriend time and bro time, and asking yourself (sniff!), “Who you gonna’ call?”…here are some other questions you might have found yourself asking – from this week’s top talent management and recruitment news stories:

Who’s the worst CEO? And, for that matter, who’s the best? Unlike the Oscar nominees, there are few surprises in FastCompany’s list of The Top 10 Best and Worst CEOs, based on reputation. [FastCompany]

Should I send out one more reminder email? That could be mistake No. 1 when it comes to getting employees to participate in employee engagement surveys, says TLNT’s Heather Nelson. Spamming employees with reminder emails is only going to make them more resistant to completing your survey. Avoid that and nine other common mistakes with your employee engagement survey.[TLNT]

When do I know it’s time to let an employee go? If an employee isn’t meeting expectations or can’t adjust to change, it might be time to say “you’re fired,” according to Business Insider’s Richard Feloni, who offers seven more key signs it’s time to fire an employee. [Business Insider]

Is my employee about to quit? Maybe. Is the employee having a lot of “doctor’s appointments” and dressing snazzier lately? These are just a few of several warning signs an employee might be on the verge of leaving. [ERE]

Am I killing my employees with kindness? According to a new study (that no one should listen to, IMO), motivational rewards like stock options and bonuses can have the opposite of the intended effect, depleting an employee’s motivation and productivity. [APS]

What do I absolutely need to know about the employer mandate? Following the release of the government’s employer mandate, BenefitsPro’s Dan Cook breaks down six provisions with some of the greatest impact on the workplace. [BenefitsPro]

What did we miss? Let us know what stood out to you this week in the comments below.
