Recently, WorkforceNEXT brought prominent healthcare leaders together for the Healthcare Summit, where attendees addressed issues in HR, talent acquisition, retention, workforce engagement, communication, and learning management. Attendees had the chance to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges their peers face through a Waggl pulse coordinated with WorkforceNEXT. Prior to the summit, participants were asked, “What is your biggest wor
BY: MATTHEW KOSINSKI What do you want from your career? Perhaps you’d like something flexible, a job you can do on your own terms. Or maybe something with massive earning potential, where the sky is seemingly the financial limit. Maybe you’d love to help other people find joy and success in their own lives. How about a job where you can have all of that and more? I’m talking, of course, about recruiting: a profession in which you can earn money on your own time while helping other people. The benefits of a career in recruiting are many and varied.
BY: MARISSA LETENDRE Which Should I Take? Do I Need Both? That’s completely up to you. I chose to take both as some companies prefer one or the other, but I don’t think it’s absolutely necessary to have both certifications. Are the SPHR / Professional in Human Resources (PHR) Study Programs Good Enough for the SHRM-SCP Exam? I studied for the SPHR only and passed both exams, but they are completely different exams.

Seems almost ridiculous to wait a whole year before giving an employee to feedback they need to succeed, but a lot of companies still do this! Thankfully, the annual performance review is rapidly becoming a thing of the past – but is that happening fast enough? Sixty-one percent of employees would like immediate, on-the spot feedback about their performances, but only 24 percent of employees get such feedback. To make matters worse, 54 percent
BY; MARK ANTHONY DYSON If you want to increase the quality of your job prospects and ensure a smoother job search, you must take control of your online image. Proactive SEO efforts may produce short- and long-term positive results in the way employers view your job candidacy. If you don’t have an online presence, you can’t compete in today’s job market. Even more important than just having a presence, however, is having the right strategy for your presence. The impression you create on LinkedIn and other sites can either help or harm your

Even the least computer-y job you can think of will probably require at least some sort of tech knowledge in coming years. About two-thirds of the highest-paying and fastest-growing jobs in fields such as design and marketing now require computer science skills, according to a new report from labor market analytics firm Burning Glass Technologies&nb
With constant technological development and increased online threats comes a greater responsibility for all business owners to shape up their security, both online and offline. Moreover, even if your operation is entirely safe even without the added effort, but your competitors are offering an extra layer of security, your clients will surely take it. That is why any company with genuine growth aspirations, not to mention those who work with sensitive clientele information, needs to invest continuous efforts into evaluating and upgrading their overall security on a regular basis. Build a
