Our latest research offers strategies and insights on workforce developments to capitalize on today's job market, including salary data for full-time positions across major industries and funcitonal roles.
At the interview stage, hiring managers say they continue to see far too many candidates underprepared and as a result display surprising – and avoidable – gaps in their interviewing skills.
When it comes to recruiting and hiring, technology is just a part of the equation. You need the right mix of human insights and data to effectively acquire talent.
In times of change, even powerful leaders like US President Barack Obama and Republican House Speaker John Boehner find themselves without an office, a title and a clear purpose in life.
Today, organizations of all sizes are forced into making rapid, strategic workforce changes. The skills necessary for success today are different than they were a year ago; in a year’s time, the skills equation will change again.
Landing data - the measurement of the period between termination and securing a new job – is critical information in determining the length of a career transition program and the features that should be included in that program.
Launched for the first time in 2013, the Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) is an annual benchmarking report that measures the ability of countries to compete for talent. The report ranks over 100 countries according to their ability to grow, attract and retain talent.
In this signature research, conducted in partnership between the Human Capital Institute and Lee Hecht Harrison, we explore the current and planned future state of performance management and the importance of manager accountability.
Has your employer told you they are providing outplacement services at no cost to you? If so, you're eligible to register and get started looking for a new position.

250,000+ people find new jobs every year with our help and 86% negotiate equal or better positions.
Great team and leadership with whom to work - it's nice to come to work here. But, working with the individual clients, individuals having experienced a Workforce Reduction [WFR], is the best. Those clients are smart/talented people who were impacted by strategic decisions beyond their control. They come seeking assistance and insight into better marketing themselves. It is an honor and a privilege to give them the tools they need to restart their careers. And, what a rush it is to celebrate with them when they land a new role, frequently at a better level of compensation - this is the best payoff for me as the coach/consultant.
The work can be sporadic with peaks and valleys, but the slow periods can give one time to take care of personal needs. Typically, those slow times happen around holidays which is good for most of us. Other reviews mention compensation concerns - I get that, but suggest these points also be considered: 1) the pay level is roughly competitive for the role; and, 2) the person who will be most successful in this role is primarily motivated by supporting others during a time of uncertainty - it's not all about me.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Lee Hecht Harrison.
Manager conducted interview. He asked to give examples of skills expressed in career summary in action. Asked about history and client impact. Specific stories with situation, obstacle, action, and result appreciated.
