Considering Relocation?

2022-05-18T15:26:19-04:00Categories: General News, Pandemic|Tags: , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

We can all vividly remember surrendering our in-office work life as the pandemic surged, though I bet none of us thought remote work would become a new reality. Over 50% of companies are now fully remote and that has prompted the relocation of their employees as a daily office visit is no longer necessary. Major cities like New York and Los Angeles registered their lowest annual growth in a decade. However, some employees found themselves in a pickle when their employer decided that they would return to in-office work, and they are no longer located within a reasonable commute. If [...]

Why You Shouldn’t No Call No Show

2022-05-13T11:03:50-04:00Categories: Acing the Interview, Behind the Scenes, General News|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Honestly one of the worst things you can do in your work life is a “No Call, No Show (NCNS).” This could apply to an interview, a phone call, or a scheduled shift, and it essentially means that you do not show up without notice or a reason given. This is not a good habit to get into so if you have found yourself committing this act, stop. It’s a slippery slope and like we’ve said before you never know where life will take you. You may think simply not showing up to the interview is no big deal and [...]

Are You Prepared?

2022-05-13T10:26:47-04:00Categories: Behind the Scenes, General Job Search Advice, How To, Motivation|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

The word “prepared” is defined as – making ready beforehand for some purpose, use, or activity. Being prepared is necessary for almost all tasks related to your job (and life). The act of being prepared is something that should be continuously practiced and put forth in every given situation. I’m not just talking about coming prepared with a pen or pencil. Being prepared goes as far as when you task someone with something and preparing them the best you can to get the task done. If you’re thinking back to that email you sent to Jim this morning with unclear [...]

Let’s be honest, sometimes we employees don’t make it easy on our employers. With increasing employee demands, employers are frantic to find a solution that will keep the company profitable and the employees happy.

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. Productivity flatlined in 2021 and is projected to actually revert by 0.2% in 2022. The question is, why? Is it due to increased hours of work as the economy reopens? Perhaps due to the effects of The Great Resignation? Or [...]

Are You Skimping on Employee Check Ins?

2022-04-29T10:46:54-04:00Categories: Behind the Scenes|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

When was the last time you checked on your employees? Do you offer weekly touch bases? Quarterly reviews? With The Great Resignation afloat it is highly recommended to check in on your employees to hopefully avoid losing them. Some people have a hard time approaching their higher-ups with concerns while some, as you know, may have no problem voicing their opinions on what seems like a daily basis. You have to be able to differentiate who is just complaining to complain (we all know a few people) vs. who may actually be struggling with something that could ultimately lead to [...]
