Is ‘Loving What You Do’ an Attainable Feat?

‘Love what you do’ is a popular expression, but is it attainable in today’s new era of work?

How HR can address the challenges posed by gig economy workers

The contingent workforce, or gig economy workforce, is great for business. They provide a flexible workforce to help cover peaks, expand the business and respond to unforeseen needs.  However, the legal and tax framework for the gig economy is constantly changing. When the IR35 regime for public sector was introduced in April 2018, it increased the cost of freelance workers by an average of 10% and created a skills shortage as workers moved to the private sector.  In a recent webinar, I discussed the key things you need to do…

A Modern Approach to Talent - talent-groups.png

A Modern Approach to Talent

After years of talk about the need for a shift in Performance Reviews, it’s here. We see it with our clients: from a focus on evaluation to forward-thinking discussions. Ratings are still there, but they are not the bottom line. But there’s something that has been bothering us here at bob for a while: Calibration, a key process that actually decides who gets what (raise, bonus, training etc.) hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves. Companies either schedule clandestine talent review meetings where managers meet to rate employees or they rely…

Five Tips You Can Use Today to Close a Top Candidate

The research is conclusive: today’s job market is 90% candidate driven. What this means is that recruiters aren’t picking talent, the talent out there is picking who to work for. Because the best-qualified people have so much leverage, the price tag for using a recruiter can be anywhere from 15 to 25% of the employee’s annual salary. And one report found that companies pay an average of over $16,000 for each job placement. With so much being invested in recruitment, is there anything recruiters can do to boost their chances…
