Do companies screen candidates based on poor criteria?

Most companies spend a great deal of time developing job descriptions that cover the requirements of each job. Things like work experience, educational level and technology knowledge are all standard elements that appear on job descriptions. These criteria are then transferred to job advertisements, with the idea that qualified candidates will take the time to apply.

Health Benefits Options: Advancing An Employee-Centric Shopping Experience

Health Care Reform has provided Americans with access to a wider range of health insurance options and eliminated barriers to care, such as pre-existing condition limitations. It has also created a center for access to publicly available consumer information on their health benefits options through healthcare.gov, including basic information on plan types, covered services and programs available to support consumers with their increasing financial responsibilities. This rapidly changing landscape has given way to health care costs that continue to rise faster than inflation, making consumer-driven health plans (CDHPs) a necessity for many employers.

Manager buy-in is critical to learning, but how do you get it?

LinkedIn Learning recently published the findings of a study on employee training that indicated employees won’t take training seriously unless managers do, too. Companies may feel they have two choices: either hope that employees voluntarily accept the training and participate or enforce the training with disincentives from superiors. But there's a better way. Management buy-in is the key to gaining cooperation and participation from employees in their own training.

New work visa requirements exacerbate current talent shortages

The summer came to an abrupt end with plenty of national drama stemming from two major hurricanes, massive forest fires, and plenty of political chaos. Those dramatic stories overshadowed what has been one of the big stories this year: immigration reform. One of the stickier challenges weighing heavily on the minds of employers in recent months was President Trump’s "Buy American, Hire American" policy.
