Machine Learning and The Staffing Industry

By Wendy Sun, Vice President of Recruiting |   Wed, Mar 20, 2019 @ 08:59 AM

In the 21st century, machine learning is all around us.

It is listening to us, it is defining us, it is identifying us and it is collecting data around the world to drive insights into the future of business and our society. What used to be a relatively unexciting piece of technology (machine learning has been around since the 1980s) has evolved into a juggernaut of a technological paradigm that is working hand-in-hand with AI to make our lives easier.

By Wendy Sun, Vice President of Recruiting |   Mon, Mar 11, 2019 @ 09:29 AM

We’re all aware of how hard it is to find great employees these days.

Managing IT Worker Burnout

By Wendy Sun, Vice President of Recruiting |   Wed, Oct 17, 2018 @ 10:17 AM

Job burnout. It happens. You notice that former star employees are now struggling just to get the bare minimum of work done. Your team doesn’t seem to be getting along, people are snapping at each other. Or they seem to just be going through the motions without their usual enthusiasm. Sick days are up, productivity is down. Burnout is a frustrating situation for employers and employees alike. If it’s not addressed, someone usually quits, and losing a good worker is something no team can afford to do!

Unconscious Bias in Hiring – Ways to Avoid It

By Wendy Sun, Vice President of Recruiting |   Wed, Jun 27, 2018 @ 02:18 PM

Unconscious bias is a fact of human existence. That doesn’t mean we should accept it, far from it. In all areas of life, we should work to recognize and combat it.

Unconscious bias in hiring means overlooking a candidate because of something like race or age. It means elevating or dismissing someone because of something irrelevant to job performance. It makes hiring a diverse workforce harder, which hurts innovation and profitability since studies show a diverse workforce is a more profitable workforce. Simply put, in the hiring process, bias means that companies lose out on great workers and suffer for it. It’s so important then for companies to recognize where in the process it occurs and take steps to avoid it.

Three New Tools That Make The Interview Process Better

By Wendy Sun, Vice President of Recruiting |   Mon, Jun 18, 2018 @ 09:28 AM

Interviewing – a process that no one looks forward to.

Whether you’re trying to get hired or looking for a great employee, the interview process has problems; the worst may be that it just doesn’t work that well. Studies have shown that up to 50% of new hires don’t work out. That’s a big number. But what’s a good number? Employee turnover is estimated to cost anywhere from $5-10,000 to 2x the annual compensation per lost employee. At those rates, even half that number is costly.

Be a Problem Solver in the Workplace

By Wendy Sun, Vice President of Recruiting |   Tue, Nov 15, 2016 @ 06:58 AM

Encountering problems is an everyday occurrence when it comes to the workplace. In every industry and every company out there inevitably has a business problem that needs solving. Some problems are big and involve the company’s product while others may be of the more mundane, day-to-day variety, but they both affect productivity and business success. Often times, it is much more effective for an organization to take a solutions-based approach to solving work problems instead of focusing on the problems that need to be worked on. This is why it is important for employees in the workforce to focus on coming up with solutions to problems rather than focus on all of the problems the organization is currently facing.
