Workplace Drama, How Much Is It Costing You? | Can't Find Good Employees West Palm Beach

Business owners know that drama in the workplace can affect productivity and drain morale, but have you ever considered the dollar amount it could be costing you and your organization?

CPP Inc., publishers of the Myers-Briggs Assessment and the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument, commissioned a study on workplace conflict and how businesses can harness it to thrive. They found that in 2008, U.S. employees spent 2.8 hours per week dealing with conflict. This amounts to approximately $359 billion in paid hours (based on average hourly earnings of $17.95), or the equivalent of 385 million working days. Other staggering findings from the CPP study included 25 percent of employees said that avoiding conflict led to sickness or absence from work. Equally alarming, nearly 10 percent reported that workplace conflict led to project failure and more than one-third said that conflict resulted in someone leaving the company, either through firing or quitting. Employee turnover due to conflict is also expensive. Replacing an employee can cost you 150 to 200 percent more than that employee's salary and benefits (including everything from placing ads to training the new hire, paying severance, and the lost investment you made in the previous employee.)

It is important to avoid costly conflict by hiring smart to avoid personality clashes and stress in the workplace. If you’re having trouble finding good employees in West Palm Beach or South Florida, reach out to Sloane Staffing today and we can help you make smart hires that make sense for your business. We will handle all preliminary interviews, background checks, and personality assessments to ensure your organization has the right balance of personality types needed to avoid workplace drama. The less time your employees spend on conflict, the more time they will have to do their jobs!

Ways To Support Working Mothers In Your Organization | Staffing Agency South Florida

Here at Sloane Staffing, a staffing agency in South Florida, we believe 100% in work life balance and we know that balancing work with parenting duties can be a serious struggle. For new moms, making the transition back to work after maternity leave can be a difficult process. However, those organizations that go above and beyond in supporting working parents will benefit from a more loyal, engaged and happy workforce. So, how can you help working mothers in your organization?

1) Offer Remote Work- If you’re able to in your business, consider letting your employees work a proportion of hours from home each week. They can be in office for necessary meetings, but have the flexibility to be home in the mornings to see their children off to school, or pick them up when school lets out in the afternoon.

2) Increase Paid Maternity Leave- Paid maternity leave in the US is ranked as one of the lowest in the country. In Canada, new mothers can expect almost 15 weeks paid maternity leave, with some companies even offering a FULL YEAR. Let your new mother’s have a little extra time off and it will pay off in the end - you won’t be seeing yourself with a turnover issues every time someone in the office “drinks the water.”

3) Offer on-site perks- Mother’s hardly ever want to leave their children, if they are allowed to bring them in to the office, or if your office provides free day care on site where they can still watch over their loved ones, they will be much happier. On-site dry-cleaning, grocery delivery, car services - all of these are necessities for working professionals, but it's tough to get them done during work hours or when you have kids. Consider having these services outsourced for your employees.

The bottom line is, you should always be supportive of working mothers in your organization. If you have any questions about the above call us at 561.512.8989.

Unlimited PTO: Is It Right For Your Company And Your Employees? | IT Recruitment Company South Florida

Here at Sloane Staffing, an IT Recruitment company in South Florida, we work with a lot of companies on the smaller size (around 50 employees) that don’t always have established HR teams. We get a lot of questions from CEO’s and owners of companies about establishing the best health insurance and benefits possible for their employees. One question we hear all the time is “What is unlimited paid time off, and is it right for my employees?” First, let’s define the term “unlimited PTO.” Just as the name suggests, an unlimited PTO policy is a vacation policy in which employees are not given a predetermined number of days off. Employees can take as many vacation, sick, personal, or mental health days as they need, so long as their manager approves their time off. While unlimited PTO can act as a strong recruiting tool, it’s up to the business owner to decide if offering this to their employees makes sense for their business. A lot of times, unlimited PTO can be a good thing - it can act as a retention tool to retain those top employees you don’t want to lose. There’s also no rush to take unused vacation days at the end of the year, so you won’t have any empty office come December 12th. The policy can also be easily abused. If an employee chooses to abuse the unlimited PTO policy, you might have a hard time terminating them for being absent because they are allowed that time off. It’s up to you to decide what works best for your business. If you have any questions about this, don’t hesitate to contact us at 561-512-8989.

LinkedIn is your place to brag about your work accomplishments! Add any tools, languages, skills, or certifications you have to your profile. If you need help, here are some tips and tricks to updating your profile. Also, reach out to people in your network and ask them for recommendations. Your friends online can vouch for your hard work, and can say you have strong skills in one area or another. In addition, it’s important to have a good LinkedIn profile photo. We highly recommend having your picture taken by a professional, trust us - this makes all the difference. Seeing you in a suit in front of a good background is much more appealing than a selfie you took on your iPhone. When uploading the your photo ensure you name it yourname.jpg - this will ensure it returns on the first page of Google and also in Google image searches when your name is entered. If you want to update your LinkedIn photo but don’t want to alarm your boss, turn your settings on LinkedIn Recruiter to show HR recruiters and staffing agencies that you are looking for a new role.

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 Sloane Staffing Makes The Perfect Match Between Company and Candidate | Digital Marketing Employment South Florida

Sloane Staffing, a digital marketing employment agency in South Florida, is a white glove recruitment service that specializes in making the perfect match between company and candidate. We are more than just a hiring agency, we are consultants. The secret to our success is positioning ourselves as your internal recruiter, and leveraging our expansive network of potential candidates to source talented individuals who will fit both your business needs and your company culture. We comb through endless amounts of resumes to find ideal candidates, and take the time to set up and schedule interviews with them. We will essentially “weed out” any candidates we don’t feel are a perfect fit for your company, and will only present over those we believe that are top quality. We also take the time to analyze those resumes that were submitted, but necessarily did not have the exact job title requested. Top candidates are often overlooked by this small detail, but may actually possess exactly what you’re looking for – let us do this work for you. We firmly believe that recruiting is a three stage process (similar to sales):

First we build a candidate profile based on the requirements of the job that we gather during kickoff meetings with you. 

Second we leverage phone, text, email, social media, and smoke signals to bend the ears of candidates looking for a new career opportunity.

Third we qualify the candidates for you using our thorough screening process, to ensure they meet all of your requirements and are within budget.

Finally, we present potential candidates and follow up every step of the way to coordinate phone and in-person interviews. We act as consultants to both our clients and our candidates. On the client side, we help our clientele save both time and money by doing the grunt work of staffing. Working together, we will find the perfect match for you and your organization! Call 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.

Why It's Important To ALWAYS Have An Updated Resume | Company Hiring People West Palm Beach

It is always important to have an update resume on hand, whether you are in the job market or not. If you are actively looking for a job online using job boards like Indeed or Career Builder, or an agency website like Sloane Staffing, a company hiring people in West Palm, it’s important you are putting the best version of yourself first on paper. This goes for all levels - from the CEO to the interns. You never know when someone, like a recruiter, might reach out and have the next best opportunity for you. Whether you’re in college or working at your first job, it’s good to write down and identify the tasks you’re doing and the skill set you’re developing. Many professionals only think to update their resumes when they’re looking for a job, but that could not be farther from the truth. It could be any day now that a recruiter reaches out to you with an opportunity you just can’t pass up. And that recruiter will want your most updated resume, and fast. Or someone else who took the time to update their resume will sneak in and possibly get the job before you. Even if you’re not looking for a new full-time job, you may decide you want to pick up some side work, or some freelance work, or collaborate with someone on a side project. Always have a side hustle! By having an updated resume on hand, if you are up for or want to apply for a promotion, you will already have what you need! If you need help writing your resume, reach out to a company to help you paint the perfect picture of you on paper. If you have any questions, reach out to Sloane Staffing, a company hiring people in West Palm Beach 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.

Starting out your career as an administrative assistant could lead you on a path of advancement to other positions such as a personal assistant, an executive secretary, a clerical supervisor, or an office manager. Some even go on to event and convention planning, coordinating and ensuring events are enjoyable and seamless. Another great position you can land using your admin experience is a Project Manager Job. Project managers are the point person in charge of a specific project or projects within an organization.

The skills you learn as an admin are often what your next hiring manager is looking for: communication, organization, customer service, time management, and confidentiality. These skills will prove to be invaluable down the road in your career. The average hourly pay for all administrative assistant roles is around $20 per hour, but will vary by experience and location. You can even land an administrative assistant role without a degree.
