Mental Health Matters

2022-09-20T08:56:01-04:00Categories: Behind the Scenes, How to Survive the '9-5'|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

It’s time to talk about the elephant in the room that is mental health. According to Mental Health America, nearly 50 million Americans are currently experiencing some form of mental illness. With such a sizeable percentage of the population facing these challenges, you can assume that one or more of your employees may be struggling. Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t something that can ‘just be turned off’. Mental health is no longer taboo, and employees are seeking employers who are engaged in helping in any way they can.

2022-09-09T09:48:47-04:00Categories: How To|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

Congratulations on your soon-to-be bundle of joy! Expecting a baby can understandably be overwhelming as there are numerous changes in your very near future that will require in-depth consideration. From your work life to this new life that you are entirely responsible for all while dodging the unsolicited advice from Karen one, two, and three. Will you stay at home? Will you return to work? Undecided? You don’t have to have the answers right out of the gate, but the sooner you have a plan the better. With a baby boom on the horizon, we found it necessary to offer [...]

Remote Work-Life Balance

2022-06-01T16:36:12-04:00Categories: Behind the Scenes, How To|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

With remote work being the new norm we thought it was time to address ways to separate work and home life. You may be adapting to bad habits without realizing it, and though working from home to some is a luxury, you are not exempt from the necessity of a work-life balance. There are two sides to everything in life, and even working remotely comes with its share of negatives. Loneliness and isolation are the largest reported concern amongst remote workers. So, the question is how do you prevent yourself from falling into this feeling, or if you already feel [...]

Is Team Building a Thing of the Past?

2022-05-20T10:27:31-04:00Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Has team building become a thing of the past? I can vividly recall as little as 10 years ago, in each of the jobs I worked, having a team bonding day. A day where the employees got together outside the office, had some food and talked about anything other than work. One day out of the year to show appreciation for not just the employees, but those who steered the ship as well. Now, you’re lucky if you get a holiday luncheon. Something that we may have all grunted about having to attend is now a thing of the past [...]

How Are You Maintaining Company Culture?

2022-05-20T09:22:42-04:00Categories: Behind the Scenes, How To, How to Survive the '9-5'|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

It’s probably safe to say that if your company is still working fully remote that those occasional threats of going back in the office will likely not come to fruition. I say ‘threats’ because, for some, it may have taken you this long to get into a routine that allowed you to maintain separation between work life and home life and having to uproot that would certainly cause stress. Now add in the fact that, like many other companies, you may have open positions that you are struggling to fill with qualified candidates. The big question here is how are [...]

Believe it or not, there is a recommended process when it comes to requesting time off, and with summer upon us we thought it was the perfect time for a refresher. This applies to those of us who are in a current role as well as those who are in a job search. This is certainly not to discourage you from scheduling that vacation because we’re right behind you, just keep in mind there is a professional way to do it to ensure a smooth transition out the door as well as when you come back.

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 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 [...]

Do You Understand Your Paycheck?

2022-05-13T10:38:33-04:00Categories: Resources for Job Seekers|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

In a day where the price of basic necessities like gas and groceries are through the roof, you may find yourself more reliant on your paycheck than ever before. According to a recent report over 50% of the population now lives paycheck to paycheck due to inflation. The question is, do you know how much you’re bringing in? In this case, we’re not referring to your budget, we’re actually asking if you know the amount that will be deposited into your account from the hours you worked the previous week (or week’s if you are paid bi-weekly). You should be [...]
