5 TOP TECHNIQUES FOR ENGAGING A GENERATIONALLY DIVERSE WORKFORCE

The other day I was having a discussion with someone who is more than 20 years my senior. He remarked how complex and difficult business and life has become. Things are being done so differently and technology dominates the marketplace. He admitted to being a technophobe and for the most part either unwilling or unable to make use of the various technologies that so many of us take for granted. It is challenging enough to get him to use his cellphone for much more than taking and…

Motivating employees - uphill battle or rolling stone?

by Peter McDermott

It's a tough time of year for employers who are struggling to motivate their employees. Generally speaking, motivated employees are more productive and more loyal (even through the tough times). A motivated workforce means less absenteeism and it's more viable financially to motivate an employee than paying the costs to replace an unmotivated one. But how do you go about motivating employees? I've done some research…

Talent management is a vital edge in the digital agency world

by Andre Steenekamp

For a business that's so driven by its people, the digital agency environment is one characterised by high levels of staff turnover and burn-out.

What to do when your employees won’t follow your lead

by Juliet Newton

 It's all terribly simple. You're in a managerial role because you've proven yourself and have been the most adept at 'getting stuff done'. Unfortunately, being responsible for employee management isn't simple: achieving an objective yourself, and the ability to get a group of people to achieve those same goals, are two very different skills sets. What happens when your team won't move in the same direction or aren't…

This personal right doesn't, however,…

5 Reality checks for recruiters

by Kay Vittee

Career advice articles litter the Internet - how to write a cover letter, how to write a CV, how to interview well and how to get the 'dream job'. Most articles repeat the same-old sage advice that quite frankly most career seekers should already know.
