Take Your Damn PTO!

Paid Time Off, or paid vacation, is the most requested benefit by employees and candidates. The average business now provides 15 paid days off for 1st year employees.

So how come no one is taking PTO, and – how do you get employees to take that time?

Eric offers his thoughts in his latest blog.

Getting Employees To Take Their (Damn) Time Off

Title Creep

The old saw about every employee at a bank is a Vice President? Well, old saws start with a kernel of truth.

It’s especially pervasive today in HR. Be careful when you’re looking at hiring an HR professional. DON’T look at the title – we recently saw a resume from a Vice President of Human Resources. Upon further investigation, she was VP of HR at… a retail store with 7 employees.

Instead of title, look (and ask about) certifications, skills, knowledge – anything but job title.

In this quick video (1:18), Eric discusses what he sees as a big scam in hiring today.
