I want to turn the spotlight on Talent Pools and how s1’s CV Database will help you create your very own. If you’re a tad unsure of what creating a talent pool means for your business, allow me to elucidate, for a start don’t confuse the phrase with football, infinity or car.
There’s been an awful lot espoused about talent pools, but unfortunately most offerings are generally just floundering around at the shallow end. I’m a huge fan of talent pools, and when dealt with correctly, it’s a very shrewd way to develop connections with, and get a better understanding of potential candidates. At s1jobs we have a fantastic product to help you attract the best candidates available to take that job with your business.read more

For many of us one of the joys of coming to work is the interaction with our colleagues.
Some workers spend time glued to a screen and wearing a set of headphones so they can more easily talk to customers. It’s a necessity for call and contact centre staff who must focus intently on consumers.
Now, however, enlightened employers are recognising cherished employees also need to talk to each other.
So they’ve introduced a daily ‘huddle’ at the start of every shift, when teams can get together, be briefed on the latest company news and – most importantly – chat about what’s going on in their own lives.read more

A dress-down day can add informality and ease tensions. Extra long lunch breaks on a Friday always go down exceedingly well.
So let’s look at four ways to help make everyone happy while they work.

Bosses everywhere want to keep their top employees happy. As happy as Pharrell Williams opening his royalty cheques.
That’s because when you’re happy, you’re not only doing great work but likely to stick around for longer.
And when the cost of replacing an employee comes in at more than £30,000, it’s no wonder good staff are worth their weight in gold: they need to be treasured, polished and allowed to shine.read more
Dancing. It takes skill, patience and whole lot of practice to ensure everyone stays in formation and knows what they’re expected to do.
It’s much like HR, in fact.
Where the most valuable asset of any company is its people, retention of staff is crucial. Equally, so is defining roles so that the entire team moves and operates like a perfectly choreographed line dance.
Achieving this means delivering training, learning and professional development for all employees, from new recruits to upper management.read more
