The Bureau of Labor Statistics released its October job report and while jobs were overall up, manufacturing jobs took a serious dip – a 36,000 dip. Is this all due to the GM strike?
Remote work is quickly becoming a necessity that organizations must offer, rather than just a “nice perk.” A recent survey by Flex Jobs shows that 81% of millennials seek work-life balance over both salary and health insurance. Telecommuting was the top choice for flexible work arrangements for millennials.
One of my favorite television shows is Shark Tank. In fact, I was so thrilled to find out that one of the keynote speakers at the HR Technology Conference I recently attended was Barbara Corcoran. But what inspired this blog post is a fairly recent quote by Mark Cuban, “Now the onus is on employers to keep their best employees happy.”
I am always fascinated to find out if people that are highly successful have similar traits. Time after time, I find that they do. I recently read an article on theladders.com that reviewed the eight most common traits of highly influential people.
For as much focus as I’ve seen on employee engagement over the past few years, it was shocking to read that 84% of workers are just “coming to work” – not contributing to the organization. This is according to recent research by ADP Research Institute’s (ADPRI) Global Study of Engagement.
The remote work trend continues to grow. More and more I’m reading about workplaces that are 100% remote. 16% of global companies are now fully remote and 52% of employees around the world work from home at least one day a week. Will the office eventually go away completely?

Have you ever feverishly taken notes in a meeting, but when you look back at them to find the one thing you are trying to recall, you can’t find it? I think this happens to most of us. I recently read an article on inc.com that discussed how to take notes more effectively, and I thought I’d share some of the tips with you.
Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is a key trait necessary to be successful. I recently read an article on theladders.com that listed several signs that indicate when one lacks emotional intelligence. I like this list, because most others I’ve read list traits that indicate high EQ, not that it’s lacking.
While much hard work and dedication goes into any kind of success, there are habits that are found across the board when looking at highly successful people. An article published recently on the CNBC Make it section of their website outlines six little things you can do every day to be successful:
Sales teams tend to have some of the highest turnover, so it would make sense for HR and sales to collaborate and create a cohesive partnership.
Culture tends to be an often-misunderstood concept, yet it is one of the most crucial elements of organizational success. An article I read recently on entrepreneur.com outlines some common myths around culture.
