Should Your Office Be CPR Certified? | Help Employing South Florida

If you own a business that is working to help employ South Florida, then the fast and easy answer to this question is yes. Most people spend the majority of their time at their workplace, and it’s possible they could have a heart attack at work. If something like this occurs, will you as management or anyone in your office know what to do? If someone in your office is having cardiac arrest, their life could depend on whether or not someone knows cardiopulmonary resuscitation. CPR is a great asset to have in your office. If you are not comfortable giving mouth to mouth resuscitation to someone else in the office, you can learn hands-only CPR. Here’s why office workers should be trained in CPR.

Learning How To Perform CPR Is Easy. In one easy class, your office can learn how to perform CPR. Check out the American Red Cross to sign up, their classes are trusted, affordable and convenient.

Knowing CPR Could Save A Life. Each year, thousands of people have cardiac arrest in the United States. These heart problems often occur where they spend the most of their time: in the office. CPR can help with keeping the person’s blood circulating until an emergency responder arrives. If there isn’t someone in your office who knows CPR, the person affected by cardiac arrest unfortunately has a decreased chance of survival.

You Can Become A Greater Asset To Your Office. Knowing CPR can potentially make you more valuable in your office - you know how to save a life! You will be an asset to someone who is in need of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Knowing CPR is a valuable skill you can add to your resume.

If you are a business owner, or a manager, and are thinking about bringing CPR training to your office, we highly recommend it! Contact us today with any questions.

5 Hiring Trends To Watch In 2019 | Company Filling Positions Boca Raton

Are you a company filling positions in Boca Raton? Is your goal for 2019 to build out your teams? If you want the best workers this year, here are the top 5 hiring trends we at Sloane Staffing predict for 2019.

  1. Build A Talent Pool. A talent pool is a group of highly-qualified candidates who are interested in working for your company. This will ensure you always have access to candidate’s updated resumes. Read more about how to create one here.

  2. Streamline Your Application Process. Quality candidates will drop out of your application process if it’s too long and confusing. Save the questions for the in-person interview, getting them in the door is most important. Make it easy for them to apply for jobs. Nowadays, people don’t want to fill out pages and pages of application forms. They want fast results and to be able to apply for jobs on the move. Make sure they are able to apply for your jobs on their mobile devices.

  3. Candidates Are No Longer Hired Based Off Of Their Degrees. Times have changed. In some cases, experience is preferred over an actual degree. One survey found that 45.8% of hiring professionals measure success on candidate experience. Take that into consideration.

  4. Use Social Media As A Recruiting Tool. With LinkedIn and LinkedIn recruiter being the obvious ones, social media is a great way to attract good candidates. We pick up a lot of talent through both LinkedIn and Facebook.

  5. Target Passive Candidates. One of the biggest trends we see is that the best candidates are not always necessarily open to new opportunities. However, once we explain the position and the benefits of the new job, they start to see it as their next role. Hire a staffing agency to help you sell these top candidates. Try re-targeting with an email campaign.

How To Turn Your Temporary Hire Into A Top Employee | Tech Company Staffing West Palm Beach

Here at Sloane Staffing, a tech company staffing West Palm Beach, we’ve noticed a trend: hiring temporary or “contract” workers, become increasingly popular. Hiring a temp, or a contractor, is a great way to test out the employee to make sure they fit with the company culture and can do the job they say they can, before bringing them on to the payroll permanently. It can be tough to land a good hire this way though, because a lot of candidates don’t want to leave their full time job if their next role is not a sure thing. It’s important to make contractors feel like they are just as much a part of the team as the rest of the organization. If you want to turn a temp, into a great full-time employee, there are a few things you can do. First, set clear expectations with the contractor. Don’t lie to them, and be transparent about their role, their salary, and if they will have the opportunity or not to become a full-time employee at your company. Temps are usually ambitious, and will go above and beyond what is expected of them. Also, be sure to provide lots of opportunities for them. This includes networking and learning opportunities. Provide the same training to a contractor you would a full-time employee. Also, show them recognition and support. By including them, they will want to join your organization just as much as you want to bring them on. With regards to day-to-day work, small and frequent recognition can go a long way to retaining your best-performing temporary workers. We hope these tips help you turn your temporary hire into a top employee at your company. If you need help from a tech company staffing West Palm Beach, contact us today at 561.512.8989.

Why You Should Never No-Show To An Interview | Can't Find Good Employees West Palm Beach

At Sloane Staffing, we’ve been working hard for one of our clients who can’ t find good employees in West Palm Beach. Unfortunately this morning, we had the worst possible situation happen for our client - the candidate they were supposed to interview was a “no-show.” In case you can’t figure it out by the name, a “no-show” is a person who has made a reservation, booking, or appointment but neither keeps nor cancels it. So, we thought it would be important to explain why you should NEVER no-show to an interview.

Besides the obvious reason of it being rude - every person in the company you were scheduled to meet with and interview with, has cleared their calendars for a block of time. They are just sitting there, waiting for you. By not showing up, or even calling to say you are not coming, reflects extremely poorly on the recruiter or HR person you worked with to get you that interview. It is completely out of the recruiters control whether you show up or not.

Another reason why you should never no-show, is that your name and reputation will be tarnished. And not just at the company you didn’t show up to. Recruiters will make notes not to send you to anymore interviews, and in small towns like West Palm Beach or Boca Raton, you will have trouble landing a job. In small towns, word travels fast, and even if you are a very strong candidate, no-showing starts you off on the completely wrong foot and with a bad first impression.

We can’t stress this enough here at Sloane Staffing, always, always show up to your interview or call and let them know you are running late or won’t be coming. For more tips and tricks on how to prepare for an interview, check out Live Career.

How Your Company Can Give Back To Your Community | Help Filling Positions West Palm Beach

In addition to help filling positions in West Palm Beach, here at Sloane Staffing, we know just how important it is to give back to the community. Corporate philanthropy is defined as the act of a corporation or business promoting the welfare of others, generally through charitable donations of funds or time. Corporate philanthropy benefits the community and also benefits your company by building your brand and strengthening employee morale and camaraderie, bringing your teams together. It is important to get every one of your employees involved, at all levels. The CEO should be participating just as much as the interns. One of the more common corporate philanthropy events we see in South Florida is Habitat for Humanity. Schedule a day (or half day) to close your office and take your employees to this nonprofit organization that helps people in your community and around the world by building or improving a place they can call home. And if you want to get really creative, you can also start philanthropic traditions, such as choosing a different charity to focus on each year or during the holiday season. Regardless of company size, make sure your philanthropic efforts authentically align with your company’s values and beliefs. In recent years, the explosion of social media and the widespread adoption of its use by businesses and consumers has created a level of transparency that was completely unknown just ten years ago.  With this new atmosphere of openness and dialogue at all levels of the business cycle, consumers have become far more interested in a company’s values and corporate responsibility than ever before. If you’d like to get involved, take a look at ten awesome companies doing corporate philanthropy right. And as always, if you need help filling positions in West Palm Beach or South Florida, reach out to Sloane Staffing at 561.512.8989.

What Do The Top Companies On Social Media Do For Their Following? | Company Staffing West Palm Beach

All companies want it: thousands of followers, tons of likes, comments, post engagement, and re-tweets and shares on their social media sites, with the ultimate goal of their content going viral. Here at Sloane Staffing, a company staffing West Palm Beach, we are often asked how to make this happen. Because we all know, the stronger social media presence equals more business. So, here are our top tips for enhancing and growing your social media channels:

  1. Leverage your blog. Your blog is your number one tool, and crucial to driving traffic to your website. The best advice we can give any business owner is to take a class on SEO, and learn all about the Google “spider.” If you don’t know what we are referring to, then you definitely need to take the class!

  2. Showcase your team members. Literally putting faces behind names adds a touch of personal elements to your website and your blog. Users feel more connected and are more likely to do business with you. We personally love what Warby Parker does here: https://www.warbyparker.com/culture

  3. Stay up to date on current events. Everyday is a holiday in social media world, literally. National dog walking day, national ice cream day - the list goes on. Create content that links both your company and these holidays, and people will engage with them socially.

  4. Share inspiration. One of our favorite things to post is quotes from thought leaders, or daily inspiration. You’ll be surprised - people will tag their friends, and so forth.

  5. General engagement. People love to voice their opinion. Sites like Facebook and Instagram now have new features where you can create a poll and cast a vote. Try that out and see how well people engage with your sites.

For more tips and tricks on how to be one of the top companies on social media, call us today, a company staffing West Palm Beach, at 561.512.8989.

The Benefits Of Working Outside | Agency Staffing in West Palm Beach

Here at Sloane Staffing, an agency staffing in West Palm Beach, we always suggest to our clients to give their employees the opportunity to work outside, if possible. Especially in the hectic world that is agency life, it is extremely beneficial for people to leave the office for a breath of fresh air every once in a while. Sitting inside all day, everyday at a computer can have serious long-term consequences on one’s health and well being. According to a recent survey as written about in MBG Planet, 87 percent of people said they enjoyed the outdoors, but 75 percent of them rarely or never took their work outside. Humans are not designed to sit in doors all day! This is why companies like Google have created outdoor spaces like lawns and picnic areas for their employees to enjoy. The dangers of a desk job include a greater risk for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. To avoid this, companies should allow their employees to work outside. Try holding meetings outside, or scheduling team lunches or picnics in the park. Set up a wifi system so your employees can get away from their desks for a little. Nature and natural sunlight has a very powerful effect on us. Working outdoors can improve memory, lower high blood pressure, and improve teamwork. Nature is also a mood enhancer and an energy booster! Besides being a stress reliever, being outside can also help your sleep patterns at night. Employers might want to look into setting up an outdoor work space. If your employees are happy and healthy, it will positively impact your business. If you have any questions or comments, please reach out to Sloane Staffing, an agency staffing in West Palm Beach.

Staffing Predictions for 2019 | Staffing Delray Beach

Recruitment trends and predictions for this upcoming year have already been made, and here at Sloane Staffing, a staffing firm in Delray Beach, we are taking note. It has been predicted that the following will be common resources for staffing in the year 2019:

  • Mobile Recruitment: More and more candidates are using their phones and tablets to look for and apply for jobs. According to Glassdoor, 89% of candidates use mobile platforms to search for jobs. Companies should work to make it easier for candidates to apply directly from their phones if they want to see an increase in their job applicants and submissions.

  • More Flexible Working Conditions: Contract work and temporary positions are becoming more and more popular among candidates. Even more attractive to potential new employees is the opportunity to work remotely, or work from home. Allowing candidates to work remote even just one day a week will greatly increase your submissions.

  • Leveraging A Staffing Agency: Staffing agencies have valuable industry expertise that help companies who struggle with hiring. Working with recruiters also reduces friction among hiring managers. For example, positions in fields like IT, engineering and software development have specific requirements that can be hard to understand for talent acquisition generalists who lack direct industry experience. Plus, staffing agencies close relationships that they keep with top candidates in the market can lead to a faster hiring process.

If you are thinking of working with a staffing firm in Delray Beach, call Sloane Staffing today at 561.512.8989. The next time you find yourself searching for talent, you don't have to go at it alone!

Let’s Review: Why Companies In South Florida Need To Leverage A Staffing Agency | IT Recruitment Company South Florida

Are you a company in South Florida that has no time to search for, interview, and hire candidates? Want to grow your business but just don’t have the resources to replace or hire new employees? Often, business owners who try to recruit on their own run into problems. They simply don’t have the time to conduct searches, review resumes, schedule interviews, check backgrounds, etc. Because of all of the time needed to find the perfect employee, it can be much easier to outsource this work to a recruiting agency, such as Sloane Staffing. 

At Sloane Staffing, we have the resources and can handle the full-time job that is recruiting for you. This includes, searching for that hard-to-find candidate, reviewing resumes and applications, conducting phone screenings, interviewing candidates, and checking backgrounds and references. We have also developed a deep network throughout our years of staffing and can reach candidates that hiring managers would not often be able to reach themselves. 

Staffing agencies also understand your needs which in turn can save you money. Staffing agencies are essentially a devoted human resources team. However, companies that use them save dramatically on overhead costs associated with staffing an in-house HR department. In addition, not every business needs a full-time, direct hire employee. Some only need part-time, temporary or short-term contract help. By going through a staffing agency, a business can avoid paying for employee services that exceed their actual needs.

If you are a company in South Florida that needs help with recruiting and hiring, contact Sloane Staffing today at 561.512.8989.

Five Tips For Recruiting Millennial Talent | Executive Recruiters South Florida

If you are a business owner seeking to hire millennial talent, you are in luck. Executive recruiters in South Florida, like Sloane Staffing, often use the following tips to recruit millennials.

1.       Be clear when creating your job listings. The clearer your job descriptions are, and the more upfront you are with potential candidates, the better your responses will be.

2.       Be aware of what millennials think of you. Millennials eat, sleep, and breathe social media and WILL be checking in on your accounts prior to or during their interview process. Make sure your reviews on sites like Indeed and Glassdoor are positive.

3.       Create a mobile-friendly site. Millennials are an internet-raised generation. They will be doing their research on you (mentioned in #2) on their phones and tablets. Make sure you’ve advertised your company and its culture in a good light.

4.       Emphasize company culture. Speaking of company culture, it is important to “brag” about your company and its benefits these days.
