Yes, an On-Site Manager Helps Your Company – Here’s How

October 5th, 2017

Have you been wondering whether or not your company could benefit from on-site staffing management? You may understand the mechanics of the process, but do you really know how it can work for you? You know that an on-site staffing manager can handle all aspects of hiring and managing temporary workers for your company. What are the real and long-term benefits that you’ll get from the arrangement? What can an on-site staffing manager handle for your company that your own team can’t? Before you get started or make other arrangements, here’s how an on-site manager can help your company succeed.

Increase the overall efficiency of your department.

Your on-site staffing manager will handle all the daily oversight of your temporary staff. They will be able to get them up and running quickly. They will manage and review the work throughout the day to ensure compliance and productivity. They will also provide detailed reports to your internal HR department so you can see the effectiveness of the on-site staffing program.

Reduce recurring problems in the workforce.

They will also be available to handle any daily work issues such as conflict resolution or safety and injury prevention or reporting. They can also take on the tedious task of scheduling to ensure all aspects of the job are handled in a timely fashion.

Manage all the temporary staffing functions.

Your on-site recruiter will also handle all the staffing-specific functions necessary to keep this department running smoothly, they will be in charge of sourcing and interviewing new candidates, handling all their onboarding, and maintaining payroll and administrative work.

Ensure safety training and policies in the workplace.

Since your on-site staffing manager is trained to work with this industry and the issues that might come up with each employee, they can also be in charge of safety orientation, discipline, and other enforcement as each employee starts and throughout the duration of their assignment, whether it is long- or short-term in nature.

How to Bounce Back from Career Disappointment

August 25th, 2016

When everything is on track, you feel great about yourself. But what do you do when things get derailed? We’re not always prepared for career disappointment, so it can have a real negative effect when something doesn’t go the way you expected. And it can make everything seem bleaker. But sometimes it happens, and being prepared will be one of the best ways to bounce back quickly. Here are some ways you can recover from career disappointment.

Take a step back.

You can’t see what happened when you’re standing at the center of an explosion. When things go wrong, you need to take a step back. A fresh perspective, a new angle, or some distance between yourself and the incident will be welcomed when you’re trying to bounce back. You need to look at the situation as objectively as possible, and you can’t do it when you’re still holding the dynamite. You need to understand if you’re overestimating or underestimating the problem. Because you are emotionally invested, it feels like a big deal, but maybe it isn’t. You will need this perspective to move forward.

Talk to people you trust.

Next, get someone else’s perspective. While you may be able to take a step back, you’ll never be able to give up enough control to understand the long-term implications of your career disappointment. Talk to a trusted co-worker or a career mentor. Talk to someone who is familiar with your career who can give you advice and support.

Find a support network.

Of course, advice from coworkers, former bosses, and mentors can only go so far. You will also need personal support from trusted friends to help you get through this disappointment and out the other side. These are friends who don’t care about your career success. Friends who just want you to be happy. Go get coffee. Go for a walk in the park. Take some time to care about you and not worry about what you are going to do next.

Get the Scoop Before You Interview for Your Next Job

August 11th, 2016

You’ve sent your resume and received the all-important callback, now what? Before you step into that interview, you need to do your homework. You know to search the company and review their website. You know that you should have all of the important information about what their company does. But what else? If you want to take this to the next step, try to get the inside scoop before your meeting. Here are some ways you can do that.

Find and contact a mutual connection

Start by reviewing your network to see if you have a mutual connection. You may have a mutual friend who can put you in contact or there may be someone in your alumni association. Otherwise, the best resource is LinkedIn. You can see who you are connected with and if there is also one degree of separation from the company. Finding a mutual connection can take some work, but the effort can lead to some great results.

Communicate with complete transparency

Once you have identified someone to talk with, send them a message. You can do this directly through their email or through LinkedIn’s messaging system. Be honest about what you’re trying to accomplish. Let them know you’ve applied with the company that they are familiar with and you want to talk to them about their experience.

Offer to meet and discuss the company

Next, set up a meeting time to talk with them. If they are in the same town, offer to meet over coffee. If not, schedule a phone call or even a skype so you can ask them questions about the organization. The important thing is to avoid gossip and focus on the details of the company that will influence your decision or the company’s hiring decision.

Ask them to act as an icebreaker

If the conversation goes well, ask them to become an icebreaker between you and the company. You’ve already submitted your resume, so they could simply put in a good word about you. They may send an email to their contact to let them know that you’re a recent applicant and the company may want to take another look at your resume.

Thank them for your time

Someone took time out of their day, either professionally or personally, to help you take the next step in your career. At the least, send them a thank-you note, and it’s even better if it’s a handwritten note. You may have already taken them out for coffee, but send a gift card to a local restaurant – especially if they helped you get the job!
