With thousands of organizations across five continents using eSkill for talent management, eSkill is the market leader in job-based skills testing.

eSkill's modular subject library features over 450 subject areas and over 5,000 modular subtopics – covering IT, Office Software, Typing, Accounting, Healthcare, Legal, Call Center, and other professional knowledge areas.

It's ok to love your job and be committed to work. So many hate what they do, day in and day out. I am thankful that my work is also my life's passion.

If the work doesn’t bring pleasure and satisfaction, doesn’t motivate or inspire you – then it’s probably time to start thinking about changing your career path. But when you find a job you are passionate about, job that inspires you to create new things and becomes inseparable from your life – it’s great and you shouldn’t feel guilty about it, but, on the contrary, be proud of yourself.

Technology has become firmly rooted in our business meetings. But that doesn’t mean that tech should take over. Here are some tips on meeting tech.

Before starting the meeting, I always politely remind people to turn their phones off. It’s important to stay concentrated and to not get any irritating meeting disruptions. Of course, you can’t make people not to use their gadgets or browse the internet instead of watching your presentation, but I found it useful to put some images (sometimes even funny ones) with the text on the first slide of the presentation kindly asking not to use any personal gadgets during the presentations.

Unfortunately the continuous changes through which the world is going today are causing serious changes in the job descriptions. Until recently, the staff working in the human resources department had to deal strictly with the human component of a company; nowadays, this is no longer enough. I believe that anyone who works in human resources must think like a manager.

Why aren’t more HR professionals included in the higher realms of the corporate world? Giving them a voice can make a huge impact on the bottom line.

Great companies are made of great people. HR managers have all the power to find the best people to fill in job positions. But finding great people is not enough for the company to be powerful and successful – it’s much more important to get the employees motivated, loyal to the company and create all the conditions for them to generate creative ideas and solutions to the problems. HR department can do all of this, but in order to do it well – head of HR department has to be made a member of the boardroom to be aware of company strategies, plans, financial situation, etc.

If the company wants to attract the best candidates, it should make such a job ad that would stand out among others. It might have an unusual design, contain some humor, etc. It all depends on who the company is looking for – job ad for a designer might be slightly different from that of an office manager.

It may seem noble to “soldier on” and come to work when you’re sick. But the high cost of infecting your coworkers makes taking time out the best course of action.

I know and completely understand that everybody has their own substantial reasons to come to work while being sick, but it’s really irresponsible and selfish. By doing this we usually mean the best – we don’t want to overwhelm our colleagues with additional tasks, we don’t want to fail our managers and miss the deadline, but these situations usually turn out not as we planned - we end up infecting half of the office and because of poor health condition we lack attention and concentration and therefore we underperform.

A little competition is always good. Too much, however, has a detrimental effect on productivity and worker retention. How can you tone it down?

A fair amount of competition hasn’t killed anybody, but constant competition can have negative results on the office morale as it can worn employees out and make them less productive. Sometimes you should let your employees rest from the competition – this will bring balance to your organization.

An open letter from an experienced HR professional on what it really takes to excel in the field today.

Good HR professionals have to love people in general and have to understand them, their needs and desires. If you decided to be an HR pro and haven’t taken any psychology classes – you wouldn’t probably succeed. Good HR pro should evaluate human’s behavior, know the sbody language, recognize different personality types in order to match and find right people for the right job.

I think a lot of people leave the company as they are given false expectations at the very beginning of their career. The company should be upfront about its policy, so that if there are no opportunities for professional growth – it should be mentioned in the job description or stated during the interview. If the company gives promises that are not later fulfilled – then no surprise that employees will be looking for other opportunities.

I would like to work with people who are, first of all, professional and responsible. Ideally my coworkers will be sincerely glad watching me succeed, will offer their help without asking for it, will support my new ideas, will be creative and passionate about their work, will have a positive attitude towards life. But if I don’t meet such coworkers I wouldn’t be very disappointed as far as they stay professional and fulfill their obligations.

When someone is endorsed for specific skills on LinkedIn, can you trust that they really have them? How to interpret the fine points of LinkedIn endorsements.

I’m not sure whether LinkedIn wanted to add some gamification to this professional network or what their intention was when they decided to implement endorsements, but it didn’t work well anyway. However it wasn’t LinkedIn’s fault at all – the problem is that people didn’t treat endorsements seriously and didn’t assess others fairly, but rather clicked on endorse button every time they saw it.

Learning to remove generation bias in the workplace can be difficult. Learn to channel the inner practitioner and fix the issue.

Generation bias has always been there no matter what generations where involved. Misunderstandings between the young and the old are like a never-ending story, every chapter of which adds new characters – the representatives of new generation. No matter how many years pass by – the generation gap remains unchanged, and probably it’s the way it should be. Maybe we shouldn’t fight the way the things are with different generations, but try to accept everybody as they are.
