Top Recruiting Metrics That Every Manager Should Have On Their Dashboard
You’ve just entered the back half of the year, and whether it’s 2019 or 2030, it’s still time for a mid-year review of your recruiting metrics and how your team has fared since the beginning of the year.
Previously, our team created a list of the top hiring metrics that every manager should have on their dashboard. You can see that information here. While we review these metrics constantly, we take extra time to review them at the end of June to ensure we are providing the highest level of service to our clients possible. We look for trends that could mean changes in the market, we look for best practices some recruiters are using and implement them company wide, and we look for gaps in our training that have to be fixed in order to reach our goals for the year.
This is not only a recruiting exercise. This is something that can and should be done in every sales environment across every product or se
Sure, the music industry is in constant flux, and it’s bound to change more. One thing is not likely to budge, though: an artist’s or band’s music video remains their single most powerful piece of marketing currency. A well-crafted, fully-realized music video could inscribe the face of an artist on the memories of millions. Even with a low budget, a creative clip can vault an unknown group from basement status to the big leagues. A video can establish an artist’s brand, aesthetic, and message faster and more efficiently than anything else he or she can make. Given advances in video technology and the bewildering array of options for television, closed circuit, and online distribution, entering the music video promotion game is easier than it ever has been before.
Winning the game, though? That remains as difficult as ever. You’re only as good as the music video you create, so a focused effort is necessary to assure the best return on investment. Fans no longer just listen, t
Scleroderma (skleer-oh-DUR-muh) is a group of rare diseases that involve the hardening and tightening of the skin and connective tissues — the fibers that provide the framework and support for your body. “Sclero” means “hard” and “derma” means “skin”.
Hardening of the skin is just one of many symptoms scleroderma sufferers experience. Stiff joints, digestive issues, lung scarring, kidney failure—all can result and sometimes be fatal. Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease with no known cause and no cure. Research is vital, but because so few people are aware of the disease, researchers don’t always get the resources they need. Patients often find themselves becoming their only available expert.
The combined forms of scleroderma, including localized, systemic, recurring and related conditions, affect an estimated 300,000 Americans – primarily females who are 30 to 50 years old at onset. The overall occurrence is approximately 1 in 1,000, or .1% of the 328+ mi
We began this agency to help the best companies in the diagnostics industry dramatically accelerate their results. To do that, everyday, we recall the critical importance of boldness, courage and audacity.
When you consistently demonstrate bold and courageous behavior and deliver quality results with speed, you quickly begin to outperform those who do not. Boldness is a highly effective asset for achieving anything.
So, what do we mean by boldness? Boldness is the act of responding to a situation in a manner that may be viewed as daring to some yet truly is essential to most effectively address the issue at hand. To reach the upper echelons, you must reject there is any value in playing small, you must thrive under pressure, and you must dare to take big risks and create the actions others are just too afraid to attempt.
Boldness is a rare approach to any given situation that requires great situational awareness, courage and craftiness. It means having the ch

What’s up guys?! last week I asked you what your biggest struggles were in your photography businesses and I had over fifty of you respond and tell me resoundingly it’s marketing. so today I’m coming to you with five ways you can market your photography business today. so let’s get right in! number one leverage content marketing. now, I know a lot of people are talking about content marketing right now and maybe you’re thinking “what the heck is content marketing?” well, it’s simply creating a piece of content or material (That could be a video pr blog post even utilizing your Instagram stories) to solve a problem or answer someone’s questions you’re creating value and answers around whatever it is the topic that you know best,.
you’re essentially creating consistent, reliable, and informative information that will attract your ideal client instead of pushing and pushing – that feels so obvious like you’re selling. if that makes sense? so instead of saying hey I’m a photographer you should book me you create a blog post that says here are five ways you can get better images at your next portrait session or your next engagement session you’re creating content and helpful content at that.
That is more likely to be shared and then the person doesn’t feel like they’re being sold to. through out pieces of your content marketing you can be putting in pictures that you have taken giving your tips and linking to your work so these are targeted pieces of content that point them back to you. so you don’t feel like you’re selling and they don’t feel like they’re being sold to. however, your work is inside those blog posts.
your tips are there and it’s linking back to you! So you’re establishing yourself as an expert and creating loyalty. tip number two: is to plan a collaboration shoot so what I like to do is I like to go on Instagram go through hashtags geo ties and find some vendors that I’d like to work with that I’ve never worked with before because you want to create new connections once you have those pictures you can cross promote you can share and tag each other and they’ll share and tie to you so their audience will become your
audience your audience will become their audience and you’re lifting each other up together tip number three is to start a referral so a referral program is simply that it’s just a rewards program for your past clients if they go ahead and refer you to new clients this is a great way to up your word-of-mouth referrals and in a non pushy way you can circle back to people that you photographed in the past and let them know that this referral program is now in action so it’s a great way to email them or send them a message and not be pushy but really just let them know what they could get from you for free or what they could earn by simply sharing about your work so I think a referral program is extremely effective way especially if you want to work with a very specific clientele and you’ve found that you’ve worked with them before so if you love the people that you’ve worked with before and you want
to work with more people like them a referral program can be incredibly effective tip number four is to give back this is the perfect time to get back into your community align yourself with a charity or a fundraiser that your brand can stand behind and photograph that event for free not only will your images probably be shared in a newsletter or wherever the charity or fundraiser promotes those but you’ll also meet other vendors it’s a great way for you to have content to blog about or share about it tells your community you’re still active you’re still a photographer and this is a cause you care about tip number five is to create partnerships with local businesses in your market partnerships are really based on relationships so I want you to create a list of businesses you think would align well with your brand and go introduce yourself offer up some headshots for them offer how you can bring value to them before you expect them to give value to you because that
relationship will start off on a great flooding and once they trust you they’ll start referring to you and you can create some sort of mutually beneficial partnership so for example maybe you want to work with a local gel shop and you volunteer to shoot one of their runway shows for free once they totally love your photos and they loved working with you-you could offer to give them a free canvas of some of the pictures that you’ve taken at their event up on the wall and say that you’d love to leave some of your business
cards this is a great way to cross-promote but it starts with the relationship so be sure to give before you ask so this has been just five of many ways that you can market your photography business and I want to hear what was your favorite tips what’s one step that you’re going to be implementing is a very near future leave it for me in the comments section let’s continue the conversation if you have questions I love to answer them and I’ll see you next week bye guys
I’ve always been partial to a good suit I’m a little particular about my patterns and my cufflinks but I like to think there’s an art to picking it all out and I wear them constantly when you’re on TV as much as I am you don’t have much of a choice but it’s not the staple of the office that it once was Silicon Valley billionaires have been wearing hoodies for maybe a decade now and earlier this year even Goldman Sachs the epitome of the Wall Street investment bank announced that it would be relaxing it’s dress code – so when CEOs are in sweats and Wall Street is business casual does this mean the death of the suit look I’m always reluctant to think that it’s really going to die because it’s been a part of men’s wardrobe for over a hundred years Jay Fielding knows a bit about suits he’s the editor and chief of Esquire magazine it’s waxed and waned and every kind of all these different things in the moment that happens a suit suddenly looks cool and really inventive again and throughout the year I go to Milan I go to Paris I see the shows before a lot of other people’s shows I’m highly aware that what I see on the runway is not always the most wearable thing to most men okay but they’re indications of what may happen right and what was interesting about this last group of shows was it almost everyone even the edgiest brands led with suits we see these guys strutting the red carpet with us Jason Momoa or Timothy sha’lame these guys look amazing right and it’s hard to think that if these guys come out on the red carpet that most other guys are gonna say I never want to look like that I just want my shirt on good okay okay red carpets weddings funerals for some occasions the suits not going anywhere but if the everyday suit the five days a week to work suit is on its way out that could create a tricky situation for retailers whose business is built on those customers it would be a difficult time to be Men’s Wearhouse at this moment Laurie wax is a retail analyst and expert if you will on retail in fact she’s an expert on a lot of things to me because she happens to be my wife what do you think the biggest change would be if I stop wearing suits I’m afraid that I would have to give up some more of our closet space back home so you might as well just stick in suits okay okay back to Men’s Wearhouse we been in periods like the 70s where there was a flare silhouette or the 80s where you have the big padded shoulders and that kind of evolution was really good for a place like Men’s Wearhouse at the time and they just have to continue to try to evolve to stay up I don’t think that the suit is going away but when you’re not going to be wearing it five days a week it is going to be difficult for them to have the kind of sales volume that they’ve had historically in a statement Men’s Wearhouse said they help men love the way they look for work and the occasions that matter whether that be a suit or a sport coat with jeans what is the evolution of men not wearing a suit to work mean for other parts of clothing that men wear we’ve seen sort of a sock trend in the last few years so a category that I never thought I’d be talking about is men’s designer sneakers it’s become an explosive category and you’re also seeing add-on parts to it so you’ll see kind of a zip in sweatshirt hoodie that will go outside of the jacket so there will be different layering pieces different accessories that will kind of make the suit into something that this generation can call their version of it hmm so maybe if the weekday suit is on its way out we’ll start to see the return of the weekend suit but with a twist paired with sneakers or modern fabrics that seem a little more appropriate for the club than for the office but what about the office if workers aren’t wearing suits they got to be wearing something we’re moving away from corporate chic to Silicon Valley chic and it’s all about the hoodies and jeans right this is where this idea originated you know with Mark Zuckerberg and the late Steve Jobs dawn Karen is a fashion psychologist she studies how what we wear affects how we think and she says when it comes to Zuckerberg and Jobs there was a method to their madness they sort of perpetuated this notion of okay I don’t care what I want to wear today and this is going to allow me to put more emphasis into my productivity into what I have to do today I can’t imagine that be a great thing for all of us to say well I can’t burn any calories on getting dressed because I got to save all my calories for the marathon that is going to be my day it isn’t getting dressed sort of an important part of your life it is but we make research shows that we make about unhung 108 decisions per minute so we may suffer from some type of decision fatigue so what’s fashion fashion can be one less decision clearly there’s still a lot to figure out in our new suit ‘less world but when it comes down to it what I really want to know is how will all of this affect me if I have to wear a suit and a tie to work every day a certain amount of decision-making is taken away from me and now I’m in this world where particularly for guys who are not used to dressing casually for work how do you how do you navigate that I would actually tell them to go back to the suits go for what you know go what feels genuine authentic to yourself so you can wear a suit on the weekends and if you want you can still wear a suit to work so maybe the suits not actually dying after all it’s just evolving finding its true believers and new reasons to exist what that means for workplaces and retailers remains to be seen but for now instead of a requirement maybe a suit is just something you can put on and you want to feel your best hey NBC News

Charles Darwin is often quoted AND is more often misquoted. The most frequent transgression is, “Only the strong survive.” Fact is, there is no accurate record of him ever saying or writing it.
Here is what Darwin likely said about strength and survival, but even this might be most accurately attributed to a Louisiana State University business professor named Leon C. Megginson and his interpretations of Darwin’s work:
It is not the strongest of the species that survives,
nor the most intelligent that survives.
It is the one that is most adaptable to change.
Be an Innovator
Those who know the story of David versus Goliath understand it is about an underdog – a much smaller, weaker opponent – who takes on a champion of greater strength and size and wins. It is not in the winning we find a moral, but in the HOW. Just how could David slay a giant bully named Goliath?
David was incapable of meeting Goliath’s strength and power, but he was capable of adjusting to
Researchers conducting a large national registry study recommended changes to current breast cancer screening guidelines that would make family history a more important consideration in setting ages to begin regular mammography.
Elham Kharazmi, MD, PhD, of the National Center for Tumor Diseases in Heidelberg, Germany, and colleagues looked at data from large Swedish data sets on 5,099,172 women born there from 1932 onward with at least one known first-degree relative. Of these women in the latest dataset from 2017, 2.3% were diagnosed with primary invasive breast cancer, the majority of whom (86.4%) had no family history of the disease.
As described in the team’s nationwide cohort study online in JAMA Oncology, the risk-adapted starting age of screening was defined as the age by which women with a family history of breast cancer attained a 10-year cumulative risk that was similar to the average risk for women at the recommended age of screening initiation in the general population
A protein that drives growth of pancreatic cancer, and which could be a target for new treatments, has been identified by researchers at the Crick.
The study, published in Nature Cell Biology, looked into the most common type of pancreatic cancer, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. This is an aggressive cancer that develops from secretory and tubular cells of the pancreas.
There are no effective therapies to treat this cancer and only 8% of patients survive beyond five years after diagnosis.
The researchers analysed a specific group of tumour cells, called cancer stem cells. Similar to how healthy human stem cells repair tissues and organs, these cells have the ability to start new tumours and they can also differentiate into different types of tumour cells.
As these cells are a driving force behind cancer growth, being able to identify if they are present is an important step towards the development of new treatments. By analyzing the gene expression of these cancer stem cells, the
How many times do we need to be reminded, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. In the spirit of using opposites for illustration, think on this: Some things in life are just too good NOT to be true.
Get Rich Fast – too good to be true, or too good NOT to be true? Depends on how you answer these two questions:
What does it mean to be rich?
How does one live a richer, fuller life?
To answer, you have to understand the word rich. It is derived from a root word meaning reach. You become richer when you reach out and expand any dimension of your life, accomplished by leaping outside your comfort zone and targeting big, hairy audacious goals (BHAGS) or Wildly Important Goals (WIGs).
Fact: while we all live under the same sky, we all do not have the same view of the horizon. This is precisely why we must all constantly seek to extend our reach. Here is a 9-point plan for growing richer:
Reach for greater wisdom. This is very personal, yet every life requires a
Why You NEED to Hire a Professional Graphic Designer For your Branding
Sure, cutting costs is ideal when you’re starting up a new business. You are bleeding money left and right: employees, new bills, computer, office furniture, software…etc. You make a list of priorities: What you need vs. what you want. Careful. Far too many businesses make the mistake of putting their branding at the bottom of their lists, and I’m first going to tell you why it should be on the top, and then I’m going to tell you why it is absolutely crucial to hire a professional.
Why is your branding so important? So your cousin Esther has played around in Photoshop a few times and she’s pretty sure she can throw something together that will look good. She finds a couple of fonts on Fontspace and you guys go back and forth until you see one that catches your eye. She slaps it inside a blue circle outline, adds a drop shadow, and throws you a jpeg to put up on your brand new Facebook page. “Perfect”
At a time when the World Series has just ended in usual grand fashion and college hoops kicks off, beginning in the Garden last night, and with all the debate around student athletes potentially being paid for endorsements in two years, our thoughts turn to what it truly means to be a pro.
When one thinks of being a pro, our mind often turns to athletes who have reached the pinnacle of performance. By that definition, a professional is anyone who makes a living in a field where many are amateurs, and their work is characterized by reaching seemingly unattainable levels of performance while holding to the highest possible technical and ethical standards in that field.
In the world of business, one generally thinks of a professional as someone who has received special training then delivers outstanding results, having honed particular talents into an enviable set of valuable skills. No matter whether you think of athletes that kiss championship cups, stars that win Emmy’s or Oscars

Absent of the correct quantity, quality, focus and forces of energy, we all become compromised in any endeavor we undertake. Remember, a
