IQTalent Partners: On-Demand Recruiting Vs. Recruitment Process Outsourcing

We’ve discussed start-ups on #RedBranchWeekly before, but it’s important to touch on it again. Out of every startup that attempts to “start”, only 10% are successful each year. What can you do to avoid your startup becoming a part of the statistic?

“Your budget is likely tight, so you need to be strategic and screen candidates thoroughly. You’ll want to look for a few key qualities in any startup hire: passion, trustworthiness, and (possibly most importantly) flexibility as responsibilities in the early days of a startup can often change and your team will need to wear many hats.”

Any startup needs a solid crew to run things. These early recruits will be absolutely crucial to help your startup survive the first year. IQTalent Partners have the lowdown in their new article, which you can find here.

Want your startup to succeed in its first year? You’re going to need the right crew. Find out which roles you need to fill from @IQTalent in this week’s #RedBranchWeekly. Click To Tweet

Inspire Software: 5 Succession Planning Optimization Secrets You Can’t Miss

Succession planning is quite an important task for any organization. It’s like climbing a steep mountain. When you reach the top, you feel like it’s all downhill. While that’s a nice thought, it’s not true:

“If you already have a plan in the works, congratulations! Where do you go next? It’s important to continually implement and optimize your strategy. While succession planning can seem like a “set it and forget it” type of system, this is not the case! Creating a plan and putting the steps into practice are completely different obstacles.”

If you’re all worn out from the planning part of succession planning and have no idea where to start with implementing, look no further. Inspire Software has the information you need in their latest article. Check it out here.

ThinkHR: What You Need to Know Before Disciplining or Terminating an Employee

It’s the part of a manager’s job that they might not be so fond of, yet sometimes it’s necessary. This kind of situation is awkward for both parties involved:

“For employees, being disciplined or losing their job can be anything from moderately embarrassing to financially devastating, but it’s rarely a happy occasion. For the employers, these actions always come with some risk, and there are plenty of legal danger zones an employer can end up in if corrective action isn’t done properly.”

You don’t want to make any mistakes. Those could come back to haunt you. You need to be sure you cover all bases before you make any move. Fortunately, ThinkHR’s new article walks you through the steps you should take to properly discipline and potentially lay off someone. Cover your bases and read on it.

There’s no easy way to discipline, or even worse, fire an employee. @RealThinkHR instructs you on how to go about this the right way in this week’s #RedBranchWeekly. Click To Tweet
