The Hiring Big Bang Theory Part III: Don't Leave Them Hanging

We all know the feeling. You apply for a job, and wait, and wait...and wait some more. You’re wondering if the company received your application, if you’re in the running for the job or just downright out for the count. No one likes to be in limbo during the hiring process. It’s often a full-time job looking for a job, so not knowing where you stand is just straight up frustrating. Jeff Hayden, owner of Blackbird Media, struck a nerve when he recently posted on LinkedIn an article titled “…See More

The Hiring Big Bang Theory Part II: Recruit Through Culture

If you’re like most business folks I talk to, finding and holding on to great people is one of your toughest challenges. Let’s be honest. Work isn’t always fun. It’s called “work” for a reason. Most people spend at least a quarter of their time at work every week. And that’s exactly why it’s so important to embrace what makes your company special and let your culture shine. We all know referrals are one the best recruitment avenues, and nothing says “come join our team” like a team member…See More

The Hiring Big Bang Theory Part I: Spice Up Your Job Description

The Hiring Big Bang Theory. Sounds pretty complicated, but it’s actually quite simple. Last week we hosted a webinar that focused solely on this theory, but in case you missed it, I think it’s a message worth sharing. The truth is, we’re all looking to recruit, hire and retain the best talent, yet we’re not so sure we have the right resources. Over the next three weeks, I’m going to share three bold steps you can take to make sure your applicants walk away as fans, regardless of whether they’re…See More

Restaurants Offer Silver Lining To Today’s Economy

Last week’s Jobs Report, issued by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, echoed news we’ve all grown accustomed to hearing — U.S. job growth is weak. But is that the whole story? If you take a moment to study the recent news, there is a silver lining — at least for the restaurant industry. In the month of August, 96,000 jobs were added on a net basis across the nation and more than 28,000 of those jobs were in the restaurant industry. In other words, more than a quarter of the new jobs — 29.2…See More

When Should Your Staff Question You

I read an interesting article on Freaknomics recently. It was titled, “Obedience on the Job.” The writer relates a story where he questioned a bus driver on a policy change and the driver responds, “I just do what my boss tells me to do. I don’t question.” If you’re like me, you have been in this situation before — and it can be aggravating. Maybe you’ve called a customer service line that couldn’t answer…See More
