Three Employee Engagement Questions to Enhance Recruiting

As a recruiter, you have many tools in your arsenal to find and nurture candidates. However, one tool that might not come to mind (but is a great source of information) is your company’s employee engagement survey. If your company uses an employee feedback platform, like Culture Amp, you’re probably already familiar with the survey process and the rich, actionable insight it can provide.

Beamery and Greenhouse Release State of Diversity 2017 Report

According to a PwC survey, 85% of CEOs whose companies have a formal diversity strategy said it has improved their bottom line and leads to a happier, healthier work environment.

Well, OK—but ever wonder how these companies are actually approaching and recruiting for diversity? How highly do they prioritize diversity? What are the most common roadblocks on the path to building a diverse workforce? And what methods are recruiters most often relying on to increase diversity, anyways?

Top 3 ways to improve the intersection between Talent Acquisition and Talent Management

Sometimes things just work better together: milk and cookies, Sonny and Cher, Bert and Ernie, sharks and dinosaurs (ok, maybe they don’t but they should). To this illustrious list, I will add Talent Acquisition and Talent Management.

In January of 2017, we brought Talent Acquisition and Talent Management under one roof. While the two teams have always worked well together, it’s been really cool to see the ways that bringing them together has created deeper and more effective collaborations.

The best part is... you don’t actually have to combine the teams to reap the benefits we’ve experienced. Here are three ways you can leverage the expertise of each team to build a stronger organization.

Diversity isn’t the responsibility of one individual, not even one team. Diversity leaders are, in fact, the flag-bearers, and have to deal with the daily difficulties (we referred to them as modern-day Sisyphus in one of our blog posts) of mobilizing action for change, but just as diversity is a business problem (and also a business solution), so too is the responsibility which lies with other people in the company. And so is their capacity to affect change.

Building Big Learning Roadmaps for a Small Team

CourseHorse’s mission as a company is literally to support lifelong learning, but it doesn’t take an educational technology company to understand the importance—and benefits—of learning and development.

As a small but fast-growing team, we had a number of needs (closing skills and knowledge gaps, being time efficient), and limitations (little bandwidth for execution, smaller budget), which forced creative solutions.

Idea number one: Piloting the creation of individual learning roadmaps that combined essential professional skills for each role with personal goals for career development. Our learning roadmaps were intended to be executed independently with minimal oversight (see: small team, limited bandwidth), but they did involve setting goals and regular check-ins for accountability purposes.

After nearly a year of having these learning roadmaps, here are seven things we’ve learned.

Employee & Candidate Experience Secrets from Facebook, Entelo, & Greenhouse

What does it mean to become a great place to work? What makes your employees want to sing your praises from the highest rooftops? These companies know a little something about what it might take to get there. This year, Facebook came in at number 2 on Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work 2017 list for large companies. Entelo and Greenhouse both came in the top 3 on the same list for small and medium companies.

Cheryl Roubian (Director of Talent Acquisition and Management, Greenhouse), Willie Henry (Candidate Experience Lead, Facebook), and Jill Witty (VP of Talent and Operations, Entelo) all joined together one sunny San Francisco morning over coffee and bagels to share ideas and best practices on what it means to make the list and some of the ways they help create environments where employee happiness exists.

Read on for some of the main points from the panel!
