  The Business Case For Supporting Millennials
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2016
If you’re a millennial, you’re probably humming along with Zac, Vanessa and the rest of the cast of High School Musical when you hear those words. If you’re a Gen Xer or baby boomer, you might not be feeling the music, but I want you to feel the love. As we approach May and a new crop of graduates heads into the workforce, let’s unite from a place of solidarity. Millennials often get a bad rap, but — as you know — I believe...
 
  Your Secret Source For Top Talent
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2016
“But we were on a break!” (“Friends” references cross the generational divide, right?) Ross may have been talking about a relationship break, but I want to talk about career breaks – when employees leave for another company or a personal life event. Today, most employers realize that job-hopping employees are a fact of life. The 2016 Deloitte Global Millennial Survey found that 44 percent of millennials plan to change jo...

by Kathy Caprino - Apr, 2016
Over my 11 years of coaching professionals, five years as a therapist, and 18 years in corporate life, I’ve worked with and seen every type of person with every type of challenge you can imagine. Through the process of coaching and studying professionals, I’ve observed that there are six dominant action styles – six key ways in which humans naturally and preferentially take action towards a goal and approach change. I’ve di...
 
  Emotional Intelligence Part 1: The 5 Competencies
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Apr, 2016
How’s your ‘EQ’? It’s not a question you’re probably asked very often, if at all, but it’s definitely one to consider – especially when it comes to your career. For years, a person’s “Intelligence Quotient” or IQ was thought to determine how successful they’d be on the job and in life, however, over time, researchers began finding that emotional maturity played a key role in success as well. In the early 90’s, Researcher...
 
  Can Machines Deep Learn Project Management
by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2016
Artificial intelligence has been in the news a lot lately, specifically related to machines’ ability to deep learn, or more closely mimic the actions of a human brain. In the near future, will a computer’s algorithms be able to do the project manager’s job as well as you can? It started in 2011. Stanford professor Andrew Ng holed up at the Google X Lab at the company’s Silicon Valley headquarters and initiated a project d...
 
  The Rise of Fancy Friday: Why Experiences at Work Matter
by Lindsey Pollak - Apr, 2016
In today’s “pictures or it didn’t happen” world, millennials are all about experiences. In fact, three-quarters of young people would choose to spend their money on an experience rather than buying something, according to a study by Eventbrite and Harris. That doesn’t seem surprising when you consider other data we know about millennials – that they value a company’s culture over its compensation, for example. This quest...

by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2016
Does a human or robot virtual assistant (VA) make knowledge work easier? Human virtual assistance has been a booming business for almost a decade, and now, with the wide launch of Amazon Echo, you can have a robot as well.

We will have a variety of needs that aren’t being met with existing pro...
 
  Millennial Turnover: Why Employee Retention Is No Longer Realistic
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2016
The proverbial retirement-after-40-years-with-a-gold-watch-and-pension are as passé as, well, a gold watch — or any watch, really, that doesn’t track your vitals and read your texts. Another relic? The very idea of lifelong employment at one organization. Instead, today there is an overriding belief that if you stay too long at one company, people will wonder what’s wrong with your skills or ambition. And this is not just a...

by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2016
As companies look to the spring hiring season, many leaders are focused on how to attract the best and brightest millennials.
