Company Updates

  • Traditional talent models are under serious pressure. They represent a now-antiquated philosophy for pursuing opportunity: hire a pool of qualified individuals to respond to the needs of the business. Hire more as the business grows. But “hire and retain” just isn’t working anymore, and the struggle is redefining how companies will drive objectives in the future. Complicating things further, many staffing firms have adopted a “throw spaghetti at the wall” approach, rather than providing the specific, high-quality talent companies demand.http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vMuO6

  • Online communities shape the relationship between a company and its distributed workforce. They also foster connections between workers, enriching both their professional and personal lives. In this article, David Abramovich, the Online Community Leader at Toptal, shares fundamental steps to successfully cultivate this critical ingredient that increasingly impacts the future of work. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vMlv9

    The Practical Guide to Building Online Communities

    The benefits of a distributed workforce are undeniable, both for employers and workers. Companies are able to tap into a deeper talent pool, enjoy the benefits of increased worker productivity, and reduce overhead. Workers access more job opportunities, spend more time delivering value and honing skills, and gain lifestyle flexibility.
