And with quasi-fulltime employment, tech talent is already highly in-demand before you even start ‘stacking’ the technology deck against yourself. (more…)

Click here to listen to 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover on YouTube
or, …
if you aren’t into the tongue in cheek version,
see some straight up tips on resigning from your job

(Sing to Paul Simon’s 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover)

 

“The job offer has arrived”, my recruiter said to me
“The next steps then follow logically
I’d like to help you on some scenarios to foresee
There must be fifty ways to leave your employer”

She said, “It’s my role to make this smooth
Furthermore, you should call me if there are any issues
But I’ll repeat myself, to prepare for the interlude
You must give a letter of resignation to your employer
Two weeks’ notice to your employer”

Just stay on track, Jack
Advise on your new plan, Stan
You don’t need to contain your joy, Roy
Just get yourself free
Talk to your boss, Gus
You don’t need to discuss much
Your decision is final, Lee
And get yourself free (more…)

Yes, You Should Be Offering Company Perks to Your Employees

 

Yes-to-Offering-Company-PerksCompany perks can be the metaphorical espresso shot in your employees’ coffee. In the Ceridian 2013 Pulse of Talent survey, 47 percent of workers ranked job rewards (monetary or otherwise) as the most important driver of engagement at work. Companies recognize this, and 60 percent of those surveyed said they currently offer non-monetary rewards for jobs well-done. Perks, however, shouldn’t be the sole reason employees stay with a company, nor should they be the only reason new talent comes on board. Perks should reflect company culture, not define it.
