Featured Article
What Employees are Saying about the Future of Remote Work:
As organizations look to the post-pandemic future, many are planning a hybrid virtual model that combines remote work with time in the office. This sensible decision follows solid productivity increases during the pandemic.

But while productivity may have gone up, many employees report feeling anxious and burned out. Unless leaders address the sources of employee anxiety, pandemic-style productivity gains may prove unsustainable in the future.1 That’s because anxiety is known to reduce job satisfaction, negatively affect interpersonal relationships with colleagues, and decrease work performance.

Our survey results make the source of anxiety clear: employees feel they’ve yet to hear enough about their employers’ plans for post-COVID-19 working arrangements. Organizations may have announced a general intent to embrace hybrid virtual work going forward, but too few of them, employees say, have shared detailed guidelines, policies, expectations, and approaches. And the lack of remote-relevant specifics is leaving employees anxious.

2. MAY 26th - "HOW TO BEAT AGE DISCRIMINATION DURING YOUR JOB SEARCH" - $20 Webinar
For jobseekers over the age of 45, there can be ageism challenges that may be presenting obstacles to getting the interviews or job offers you think you deserve. Some firms might refer to you as being “overqualified,” and others think you won’t be challenged enough. But regardless of what it’s called, age discrimination does happen in the hiring process, and it’s not unusual for you to be competing against individuals who may be 10 to 20 years younger than you.

There are, however, specific actions you can take to lessen your chances of being a victim of these harmful behaviors. During this webinar presentation, Marty Gilbert (NSENG Founder/CEO) will share more than 15 recommendations that have worked for him and hundreds of job seekers that he’s coached. And all of his suggestions can be implemented immediately so that you can reverse a trend that may be holding you back. Here are a few of the topics that Marty will discuss:

  • Misconceptions about older job seekers and how to overcome them
  • Advantages that an older job seeker has over a younger one
  • What you can do to improve your mindset
  • Preparation for interviews that can have a positive impact
  • How to position yourself as the “least risky” hire
  • How to turn your experience into your greatest asset
