    HR Examiner Radio: Bob Corlett, Founder, Staffing Advisors

    in Business

    Bob Corlett continually upends the conventional wisdom in recruiting, developing hiring processes that are faster, more certain, and far less expensive than the old-school, unproven, and unexamined practices used nearly everywhere. 


    Probably because he can’t leave well enough alone, and almost certainly because he freely shares his innovative approaches, Bob has been named as one of the 100 most influential people in staffing. He is one of the unruly founding members of the Editorial Advisory Board for The HR Examiner, he writes a very popular nationally syndicated weekly column the American Cities Business Journals, and he is a frequently requested speaker at Society for Human Resources Management meetings. 


    Bob is a recruiting practitioner, founding his own executive search firm, Staffing Advisors, in 2002. Staffing Advisors quickly attracted a client list of some of Washington’s most prominent organizations. The firm conducts searches in every functional area and career level — primarily for associations; charitable, education, and other nonprofits; and high growth companies.

    Tips for Increasing Your Workplace Presence in 2016

    in Business

    Have you ever wondered why some people get noticed and others don't? Start your new year off right with some strategies for increasing your presence. During this episode of the Employee Engagement Corner, Image Expert, Ron Rapatalo, offers some helpful tips for building a winning image and how to afford it. 


    Ron Rapatalo leads and supports hiring searches for leadership roles for school districts, charter schools and nonprofits independently and in partnership with firms including the Offor Walker Group.  As a product of NYC public schools, he saw the power of education and leadership to change his life and career trajectory.   Ron also does career coaching and men’s personal styling.  As a career coach, he gives career advice on how to navigate career transitions and present oneself from networking to interviewing.  Ron’s fifth grade teacher, Mr. Seluga was his most memorable coach for telling Ron he could choose ANY career he wanted. As a men’s personal stylist through J.Hilburn, Ron brings the tailor to a man’s home or workplace and provides wardrobe recommendations that accentuate a man’s personal style.   He believes that a well-dressed man is a more confident man.  


    Outside of work, he does kickboxing and yoga. He has been married for five years and has a beautiful (almost) two year old daughter, Sofia.  In his volunteer activities, he's active in the NYU Alumni Association, iMentor, React to Film, and Latinas on the Verge of Excellence (L.O.V.E.)

    Staying Relevant: Why You Should Conduct a Community Needs Assessment

    in Non-Profit

    Some nonprofit leaders have a tendency to build organizations and programs around  issues  for which they have a passion.  They believe in their hearts that, “…if they build it, people will come…”  In other cases leaders continue to use program models that are no longer relevant to the communities they serve.   These practices can lead to duplication of services, while other needs go unmet. Tune in as Valerie F. Leonard talks about  community needs assessments.


    Valerie is an expert in community and organizational development, with  a mission of strengthening the capacity of organizations to make a positive impact on the communities they serve through technical assistance, specialized workshops, resource and organizational development and project management. She also teaches online courses in nonprofit management with the UIC Certificate in Nonprofit Management Program. She has designed a number of intensive workshops to help nonprofits build capacity, including Capacity Building Blocks, the 30-Day Disclosure Challenge and the 30-Day Compliance Challenge.

    FEMVETS - BRIDGING THE GAP

    in Military

    Tessie Wilmot, United States Navy Veteran, PS2-E5 Tessie was raised by a single mother, of two children, with Tessie being the oldest, in Gretna, Louisiana (5 minutes away from New Orleans, Louisiana). Growing up in a mobile home park in a low-income family, Tessie graduated high school in 1998 and decided to enlist in the United States Navy at 17 years old. Her dream was to retire and make a better life for her and her mother. Little to her knowledge, she would meet a man that would change all of that. While being stationed in one of the most beautiful countries, Italy, she met a man name Kip, who later became her husband. Together, while serving in the Navy, they toured over 13 countries and met and became lifelong friends with many diverse people from different cultures. That’s what started her to be open minded about many things in life. In 2002, after eight years, her husband was honorably discharged from the Navy with higher tenure and they were transferred from Greece to Japan.
