    SwCA Episode 183: How HR Helps (or hurts) Retention in the Hiring Process!

    in Business

    SITE: http://www.courtneyanderson.com/swca-episode-183-hr-heroes-hangout-series-how-hr-helps-or-hurts-retention-in-the-hiring-process.html


    SHOW NOTES: Our HR HEROES HANGOUT™ series is dedicated to those who serve our societies each day, toiling in the bowels of the human capital infrastructure issues that fuel all organizations (hiring, retention, engagement, efficiency, compensation, legal compliance, policy and procedure continuous improvement, training and education, litigation mitigation, etc.); our HR HEROES! These are the unsung heroes that ensure that organizations achieve and sustain maximum human capital competitive advantage! In this episode our topic is, "How HR Helps (or hurts) Retention in the Hiring Process!"

    In this episode we explore the hiring process situations where our HR HEROES actually are SUPER-HEROES! 

    How? The mission for our HR Hero is to simultaneously defend the organization against "bad apples" while trying to lure in and retain "good apples." A "bad apple" is a human who does not want to be part of the organization. A "good apple" is a human who does want to be part of the organization. A "bad apple" must be warded off, defended against and expelled (if one gets past the organizational defenses). 

    Why? Someone who "does not want to be here" will destroy everything they come in contact with. They complain, sabotage, obstruct, create conflict and spread the misery and pain that they are experiencing to peer staff, supervisor, customers, vendors, social media and any other entity that they interact with. They do not want to be there so they don't care about the mission statement, the customer, the goals, the culture, their coworkers, their boss, anything at all. 

    You may wonder, why would a "bad apple" even bother to try to enter our organization if they don't want to be there? Well, they have other motives. 1) They are broke and need money. Your organization represen

    Job Retention and Security in General Labor

    in Goals

    Job retention and job security should be part of work plans for all who have to work for a living. Your plan for getting hired must include job retention and job security. In your wish list (goals) as you work toward earning a paycheck, don't make it just about the money. You can and will accumulate money from a variety or sources as you go through life. The money you earn doing your work for life should be a product of your skills to retain your job in a company that at least gives you the security of investing in you beyond wages. 
    Work for life is about more than getting a good paying job. Work for Life is about, job retention, job security, disposable income, and a leisure retirement. Work for life targets Veterans, Men with families, and Young Men just beginning their work life. We want you to have vacations along the way, and we want you to work to end with a leisurely retirement. This all takes plans, work, and faith.

    X-Mondays- Lessons about Customer Retention

    in Business

    This Week
    Lessons Learned about Customer Retention strategies, programs, tools, and ideas. We also cover a little about the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman trial, gun control, human self-preservation, and niche social media as we talk about the upcoming release of our new Niche Social media Guide that goes to the publisher this week.
    Show Overview
    What if you could learn one thing each week that improved your overall business performance by 1% per year. That would mean that after one year you could literally improve your business by more than 50% and all it would take is to learn from the lessons you are already being taught but are probably ignoring as you race ahead to put out more fires.
    This show is all about fixing that by taking two hours out of your week to share your lessons and the lessons of our other listeners so we can all learn and improve even faster. And you know what that will mean before long? That we'll all have a lot fewer and easier fires to put out!
    Think of this show as a global mastermind group with expert guests, technology reviews and more that help us learn about new tools, techniques, strategies, and ways that we can both improve our businesses and our lives.

    in Politics Conservative

    Dan Roodt is an Afrikaner author and intellectual who also worked for some time in the financial markets. He was born in the late fifties in Springs, a city just east of Johannesburg where he also went to primary school. He has spent most of his adult life in Johannesburg, apart from a stint in Paris where he learnt French and became in his own words, "more Europeanised than most South Africans, although my roots are in Africa, in our wonderful sunny country which has been so manhandled these past few decades"

    He holds a PhD in Afrikaans language and literature, but also comments regularly in the media and on the website praag.org on South African politics and society. In 2005 he published a popular book critical of the current South African government called The Scourge of the ANC. More recently he has written on South Africa's English identity, as well as penning a preface to the South African edition of Jared Taylor's White Identity: Racial Consciousness in the 21st Century. Most of his books are available on praag.org.

    Since February 2000 when he founded the Pro-Afrikaans Action Group (PRAAG) he has campaigned actively for the retention of Afrikaans and Western culture in South Africa, against the Afrocentric, leftist, cultural-Marxist hegemony in South Africa. He has also been in the forefront of protesting against the ongoing violence shaking South Africa and which some have qualified as a genocide, killing 500 000 people in twenty years and leading to the rape of most of the female population in the country. Farmers are particularly hard-hit, with 4000 being murdered in often horrible ways in South Africa.

    In 2015 Dr. Roodt's organisation, PRAAG, will launch a class action law suit against the South African government for the loss of life it has overseen over the last twenty years, as well as writing more books and translating at least one book from French.
