    Why Sourcing Referrals Can Improve Retention

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, October 7, 2015, from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).


    Last week we talked about the neuroscience of what keeps leaders up at night, and this week we’re going to talk about why sourcing referrals can improve retention.


    Predicting new employee tenure is about as easy as predicting the weather, even with various data inputs and powerful algorithms we have today. Most people these days stay in their jobs only about 3-5 years. 


    But one thing is clear: referrals can and do have an impact on employee retention. If an employee is satisfied at work, whose performance is consistent, and of course is rewarded fairly, then he or she is much more likely to suggest referrals. They become a brand advocate.


    And if these referrals have a similar experience to those who referred them, they will in turn potentially last a little longer and make referrals themselves. In fact, even candidates that don’t get hired will make referrals if their experience is a good one.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as they talk about why sourcing referrals can improve retention with this week’s guests: Jessica Miller-Merrell, SPHR, President/CEO of Xceptional HR, author, speaker, HR professional, and workplace social media expert; and John Sumser, Principal Analyst at KeyInterval Research and editor at HRExaminer.com.


    Thank you to all our TalentCulture sponsors, partners and supporters!

    800 referrals of Child Abuse made to the Child-Could-Care-Less-Board Officers

    in Radio

    THE CHILD-COULD-CARE-LESS-BOARD and its officers.


    THERE ARE ON AVERAGE 800 referrals or reports of child abuse made to the Child-Could-Care-Less Board (CCB) on an annual basis.  Considering that the Child Abuse Team of the CCB operates with five officers, Minister of Social Care Steve Blackett said yesterday that translated into just over two new cases per day and approximately 160 cases added to each of the officer’s caseload annually. While noting that the task was an overwhelming one for the five officers who have to complete intake duty, attend court on matters, as well as actively manage existing cases and newly assigned ones, Blackett said, “child protection work is emotionally draining and results in severe burnout for our officers”.  NationNews


    DENISE NURSE:  Then we've learned of the uncaring member of the 5-person team, Denise Nurse.  Then we've heard of the men within the CCB who abuse the children who are in the system.  Then we know that most children are told to SHUT UP so their pain/cries will never reach one of those 800 that is estimated to be reported yearly.  BARBADOS DOES NOT CARE FOR CHIILDREN.  BARBADOS IS A HOSTILE LIVING ENVIRONMENT FOR CHILDREN!

    Bob Burg Author of The Go-Giver, Endless Referrals and Adversaries into Allies

    in Self Help

    Peter G Goral and Cate Moore interview Bob Burg.


    Bob Burg is a sought-after speaker at corporate conferences and for entrepreneurial events. He regularly addresses audiences ranging in size from 50 to 16,000 – sharing the platform with notables including today’s top thought leaders, broadcast personalities, Olympic athletes and political leaders including a former United States President.


    Although for years he was best known for his book Endless Referrals, over the past few years it’s his business parable, The Go-Giver (coauthored with John David Mann) that has captured the heart and imagination of his readers. It shot to #6 on The Wall Street Journal’s Business Bestsellers list just three weeks after its release and reached #9 on BusinessWeek’s. It’s been translated into 21 languages, and it’s his fourth book to sell over 250,000 copies.


    Bob believes his new book, Adversaries into Allies: Win People Over Without Manipulation or Coercion is by far his most important work yet.

    Is Google About to Slap Your Site? and...Referrals Made Easy And Automatic

    in Business

    (learn more about the coming Google algorithm change- check out Karen's site here: http://autopilotonlinesuccess.com/)


     


    Segment one of Heath's show asks the question:


    Are you about to experience a big, fat "Google slap?"  


    Silicon Valley web designer and developer Karen Sielski says, "Yes.. unless your website is mobile friendly."  


    Many business owners could see the website rankings they've worked so hard to achieve tank overnight. Google  has decided to penalize those sites it deems unfriendly to smart phones, tablets, and other mobile devices.  This could have a devastating effect, especially on those who sell their wares online or who rely on search to drive customers to their businesses.


    Karen will also discuss the importance of creating sites that are aesthetically pleasing AND track well in search, and how to have sites that look like they cost THOUSANDS, while only spending HUNDREDS.


    What is the #1 Complaint of Business Customers?... Feeling as if businesses don't really care about them...


    Part 2 of the show continues our theme of personalizing the digital age- automating without losing that human touch.  Heath welcomes Carl Maerz, COO of the innovative referral automation company Rocket Referrals.  Carl will talk about why database marketing is so critical to achieve success in your business, and how you can automate the process without losing your humanity.  


    Letting your clients know how different you are by showing your genuine concern is the first step in creating a referral process that really works.

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VIOCE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    People's Free Medical Research Health Clinics


    We believe that the government must provide, free of charge,
    for the people, health facilities that will not only treat our illnesses, most of which are a result of our oppression, but that will also develop preventative medical programs to guarantee our future survival. We believe that mass health education and research programs must be developed to give all Black and oppressed people access to advanced sCienti c and medical information, so we may provide ourselves with proper medical attention and care. 


    Point Six of the Black Panther Party Program's Platform of March 29, 1972, explains the reasons for the institution ofthe People's Free Medical Research Health Clinics, which provide free medical treatment and preventative medi­ cal care for the community. Private hospitals and doctors charge fees far more expensive than poor people can a ord, while public hospitals and clinics are so overcrowded and understa ed that their services are almost totally inade­ quate. The People's Free Medical Research Health Clinics o er an alternative to this problem.


     


    The clinics provide comprehensive health care for the community. Doctors treat  patients for common physical ailments and refer them to spe­ cialists if necessary. Laboratory testing is also provided in conjunction with local hospitals.


    Along with the Sickle-Cell Anemia Research Foundation, the clinics con­ duct testing and research for a cure for sickle-cell anemia.


    Child health is a serious problem in the Black community, and the clinics have developed a ChildHealth Care Program to meet this community need. The Child Health Care Program provides immunizations; screening and sickle cell anemia iron de ciency anemia, and tuberculosis; referrals; and complete physi­ cal examinations as well as treatment of illnesses."
