An excellent read for managers and leaders who are looking to improve productivity. My bet - even implementing one of these will also impact #employeeengagement   in a positive way.

Good article with solid advice, but recruiters don't "steal employees" from other companies. People leave companies because they are moving away from something or are in a lot of pain. Even so, I know that wasn't the point of the article. Thanks for sharing.

Recruiters suck... or, so I'm told. We  #recruiters   demand  #communication  from #jobseekers  - but do we practice what we preach? #recruiting

+Michael Petras "Common" courtesy is sadly not so common. And, I totally agree with you!

Talent Acquisition Strategist | Bridging the knowledge gap between recruiter and job seeker to promote effective hiring.

I am a talent acquisition strategist, recruiter and social media enthusiast with a broad understanding of how the candidate sourcing, recruiting and retention processes work. Firm in my belief that greatness can only be achieved when you have the right people on your team; I help companies design innovative recruitment strategies which promote hiring for corporate culture and competency fit.

With a passion for networking and training, I inspire audiences to explore the world of social recruiting. Speaking for professional industry groups; training internal and external recruiters and business owners; and helping businesses grow, I empower people to build a strong referral network and engage their sphere of influence to attract top talent to their organizations.

For executives in transition, I offer a tactical approach to social networking. With the unique ability to reverse-engineer the recruiting process, I coach job seekers in the use of LinkedIn and other social media tools to build and engage their networks, increase their visibility, and take action in their career campaign.

Incredible. Steven Heath did an absolutely fantastic job on refurbishing / repairing / refinishing two antique pieces for us. The dresser has to be at least 70 years old, and the bar cart, likely over 100 years... I'll let the photos speak for themselves. I highly recommend Heath Refinishing!
