Retail Managers: Tips to Fine-Tune Your Schedule
Retail managers are known for wearing numerous hats: overseeing the store’s books, ordering supplies, scheduling and, of course, managing employees.

Home Healthcare: An Industry on the Rise
If you are considering owning your own business or franchise, then listen closely. Today, the oldest baby boomers are well into their 60’s and according to “The History Channel” about one in five Americans will be older than 65 by 2030.

Individualism vs. Collectivism: No Man Left Behind
Whether in a business or educational environment, our culture is dazzled by the idea of collaboration as a means for creativity. Managers are so insistent on finding “the right fit” for the team that a whole group of people are forgotten: the individualists. With collaboration becoming the new way of thinking, those with introverted personalities are left on the outside looking in.
Aligning Reality with Message: How to Create a Simple EVP
Creating an employee value proposition (EVP) can be daunting. After all, most companies struggle with the recruiting workload they already have; there is no time or budget to sit down and figure out what an EVP would have to look like to be successful. Add to this the pressure of getting left behind while everyone else is waving from the employee branding train, and it’s enough to make a talent-acquisition pro throw up his or her hands.
Get Schooled in Social Recruiting Strategies
Every day when I pick my kids up from school, I ask the age-old mom question: “What did you learn today?” Of course, they roll their eyes, but it doesn’t matter. The best way to make sure that you retain interesting and valuable information is to talk it over with someone. That’s the theory behind so many industry conferences.The theory is the same post-conference: I always try to find the high note and the Social Recruiting Strategy Conference had many.

You have to meet customer demands, maintain inventory as well as staff and manage expenses.
Is Your Nonprofit Organization at Risk for Exposure?
What would a five percent decrease in funds mean for your nonprofit? For many it means the difference between opening and closing your doors. Many nonprofit organizations have several locations nationwide, and within each of these locations work any number of employees. Employees within nonprofits not only distribute money that is brought into the organization, but also oversee a variety of other funds.
Shooting for the Stars-Long Term Healthcare
Long-term health care facilities aim for the Five-Star Quality Rating created by the federal government’s Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Five stars indicate a facility has “much above average quality”; one star, far below. Is your organization capable of achieving the Five-Star goal, but falling slightly short? Or perhaps you and your staff have earned the rating, but find it difficult to maintain that level?
Restaurants Treat Customers with Halloween Promotions
Are you a restaurant owner taking advantage of the holidays with a creative, marketing strategy? Halloween is the kick-off for such a time, bringing out the most creative promotions within the industry.
