CREATING AN A-TEAM
Sheri Dougherty
 Dr. Sherilyne Dougherty, CEO

I was honored to be featured in Sarasota's 941CEO magazine discussing how to put a management consulting A-Team together. At DAI Solutions, the top job candidates are problem solvers who apply critical thinking along with technical expertise to solve the complex challenges our clients face. 

Successful hiring initiatives require candidate sourcing tactics that span from grassroots to strategic, behavioral interviewing approaches to predict future performance, and an investment of time and resources from senior leadership. To be effective, these initiatives must also be anchored in your organization's culture. A couple of years ago, we began tracking our approach to hiring. The results show a greater return on our hiring investments and a major uptick in employee engagement and retention. And when our employees are thriving, our business thrives.

I hope you will take a moment to read the interview.

Thank you for supporting the DAI Solutions Advisor.
WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE A RESPONSIVE WEBSITE ... NOW 

Do you know what a responsive website is?

Well, let's boil it down to the basics: a responsive website adapts to all screen sizes no matter what kind of device it is displayed on. So instead of building multiple websites -- one for mobile devices, another for desktop computers -- a responsive website provides easy reading and navigation across a wide range of devices. 

Awesome, right? It truly is because now you can deliver the same content to all visitors through one website, one of your most valuable communication tools.
