Let’s face it, the tech talent war continues. With companies lacking the tech talent they need, the healthy employment rate and confidence of the tech labor force, means that attracting and retaining the skilled employees high tech companies want is more of a challenge than ever.

Can You Afford to Ignore Your Online Reputation?

By Robert Teal, CCP, CBP

In today’s environment of ubiquitous social media, job seekers have unprecedented access to information about an organization’s workforce stability, turnover, and culture. As much as an out-of-work employee may need and want a job, many talented workers shy away from an employer with a poor workforce reputation.

Paul Shread, writing for Time’s Business and Money on March 01, 2013, stated, “Want to hire great employees and keep them happy? Make sure you have a good social media reputation.” (more…)
