Is Your Job Ad Worth Sharing?



Is your recruitment ad worth sharing around?

Below is a graduate recruitment video from Dare, a marketing agency based in the UK. Besides being a big fan of infographics, I think Dare’s story telling and presentation of company info is entertaining and useful. In fact, I think it is worth sharing around.

We live in an age of sharing. Social media thrives on sharing. But, it’s usually the good stuff that always gets passed around. Do you noticed that job ads that get retweeted the most are the ones which are either funny, clever or out of the ordinary.

Depression affects more than 800,000 Australians each year. So, it’s likely to directly or directly touch most of us, including our workplaces. In fact, it is estimated that over 6 million full days of work is lost each year.

It’s RUOK Day today. It’s a day dedicated to address the scourge of mental illness and highlight ways to prevent it. The organisation behind it encourages everyone to reach out to someone else and enquire if they are OK.

VIDEO : Freedom Within Form – Jazz Lessons for HR



Sylvia Hewlett, Founding President of Centre for Work-Life Policy, on what the new generation of workers want from employers:

I think jazz is the right metaphor. It’s freedom within form. Our new demographic research coming out in July really shows that what Gen Y wants, and is actually what boomers want too, is actually to stay with an employer/company that they had admire. But to mix and match, to ebb and flow, to have much more of freedom within form, and to have a long view.

VIDEO: Why you can’t work at work



Jason Fried reminds us how much our workplaces are optimised for interruptions.

Consider these numbers – According to Gloria Mark, the average knowledge worker switches tasks every three minutes, and, once distracted, a worker takes nearly a half-hour to resume the original task. And according to Basex, interruptions and the requisite recovery time now consume 28 percent of a worker’s day.

How are you coping?

A witty look at our ideas of success and failure.

Perceptions 2



“Poetry is when you make new things familiar and familiar things new” ~ Rory Sutherland

Ad man Rory Sutherland, in an entertaining talk, argued that a lot of value can be gained by tinkering with perceptions rather than trying to change reality.

Whether you target job seekers, recruitment advertisers or consumers of recruitment service, you can create new value by changing how you are perceived. Often that  mean not doing the things you are currently doing.
