2022-06-10T12:31:44-04:00Categories: Behind the Scenes, Job Efficiency|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

The productivity of virtual meetings is in question, and for good reason. Pre-Covid, if your coworker Tim was not in the office on Monday for your team meeting, he missed it. It was as simple as that. Now, whether you’re working in an office, hybrid, or remote, all your meetings are likely virtual, and you are expected to take part. Aside from team meetings, studies have shown that employees now spend over 300% more time in one-on-one meetings, as well.

Are You Chronically Late?

2022-07-12T08:59:20-04:00Categories: General Job Search Advice, General News, Job Efficiency, Networking|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Being “fashionably late” is an excuse that people who are always late give to make themselves feel better, and it isn’t acceptable to your employer. Unfortunately snoozing your alarm 3 or 4 times and rushing out the door is an easy habit to adopt and a very hard one to break. We, humans, are creatures of habit, and we tend to lean toward the solution that gives us the most satisfaction at the moment even if it means difficulty later. It’s easy to think that extra 5-10 minutes will actually make a difference in the ease of getting out of [...]

How do you learn best? If you don’t know, you should find out and perfect it. You may be hands-on, needing to perform a task with your own hands to understand how and why you’re doing it. You may be a diligent note-taker because writing it down helps it to stick into your brain so you can repeat it later.

Is Your Productivity Lacking?

2022-05-09T14:41:48-04:00Categories: Behind the Scenes, Job Efficiency, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

If you feel like your productivity has been slowly dwindling, you may not be alone. The COVID-19 pandemic caused a 4.5% increase in productivity, including 2.6% in the US which Is the largest recorded increase since the 1970s. One of the few silver linings brought on by a seemingly endless year. Unfortunately for us, what goes up, must come down.

Are You Cheating Your Onboarding Process?

2022-04-07T12:58:04-04:00Categories: General News, Job Efficiency|Tags: , , , , , |1 Comment

Studies have shown that for a 100-person company with an average salary of $60,000, the turnover replacement cost could range from $750,000 to $3 million. That is not an amount to be taken lightly. Check out our suggestions for an effective onboarding process that will make for a successful future! […]
