The End of Performance Reviews

By Jerry Brenholz |   Tue, Sep 15, 2015 @ 07:00 AM

There’s been a flurry of news over the summer about some big corporations abandoning the traditional annual Performance Review (PR), joining others who’ve made the same decision over the past several years. Microsoft, Adobe, Medtronic, and most recently Deloitte and Accenture, have all jettisoned the traditional annual PR and its accompanying forced ranking requirement, up or out process, and other common components. About 6% of the Fortune 500 have made this move.

Employees Are Back In Control. 4 Tips On How Companies Can Adapt.

By Jerry Brenholz |   Tue, Mar 03, 2015 @ 08:00 AM

The most important trend in workforce management right now is that the balance of power between employer and employee has shifted and the employee is back in the driver’s seat. Articles about this are everywhere. It’s a change that has been developing for a while, accelerating over the last six months or so, and is now acknowledged in multiple business and industry publications as officially the current state of things. Across many, if not most, industries and job categories demand is going up for workers, and the supply of those with the experience and skills employers want isn’t growing at the same pace. This puts workers in a better position to be deliberate and selective.

Are Your IT Contractor Pay Rates Competitive? They Need To Be.

By Jerry Brenholz |   Tue, Feb 03, 2015 @ 08:30 AM

“They were the perfect candidate…had the exact skills…the hiring manager loved them…the compensation offered just wasn’t enough…they accepted a better offer.”

We hear this conversation daily inside our office, sometimes it seems like hourly, and it’s becoming more frequent. Of course we could shut the door, but it’s better to listen and learn. These conversations are a sure sign that the talent wars are heating up. People actively looking are able to be more selective and demand higher pay, and the passive candidates are even harder to connect with and harder to lure away.

NMSDC National Conference and Supplier of the Year Awards

By Jeff Monaghan, Director of Marketing |   Thu, Nov 06, 2014 @ 11:02 AM

I have been attending the NMSDC Annual Opportunity Fair in Orlando, FL this week, along with some of my ATR team members. As always, the conference was wonderful! – a great chance to meet with other MBE organizations and connect with supplier diversity program managers from Fortune 500 and other global multinational companies. There were interesting keynote speakers and great workshops too. If you haven’t been to one before, start planning for next year!

Last night the conference closed with an Awards Banquet, where the NMSDC announced their national Supplier of the Year Awards, recognizing companies for their work in and commitment to the diversity business community. After winning our regional Supplier of the Year award last spring, we were thrilled to be nominated as one of the four in the running for the Class IV national award, representing the entire Western Region. We want to congratulate World Wide Technology, Inc., the winner in the Class IV category!

Should Your IT Department Be Trying To Save Money?

By Jeff Monaghan, Director of Marketing |   Tue, Oct 21, 2014 @ 08:29 AM

Whatever business you’re in, your IT department, whether it’s one person or 100, is an integral part of your success. From retail to manufacturing to professional services, IT is the backbone of a company. Without it no business succeeds, and when it doesn’t go right, the consequences range from inconvenient to incredibly serious. Just ask any one of the retail companies who’ve suffered security breaches in the recent past. Regardless of what your core business is, IT can make or break you.
