We Remember

Friday, September 10, 2021  by Bailey

20 years ago, the Bohan & Bradstreet office was situated in Branford, CT.

September 11, 2001 began with the team gathering for a sales meeting to discuss search projects. The weather was gorgeous. It was the kind of day where recruiters would walk laps around the building in between phone calls to get fresh air. By mid morning, the world had changed forever. Phone calls went from candidate interview preps and client conferences to a near constant flood of outgoing check-ins with family, friends and colleagues. The relief of confirming a loved one's safety was mixed with abject horror and sadness over lives being lost before our eyes.

A few members of the current B&B team will remember that they were there at that conference table on that beautiful day in Branford when tragedy struck our nation.  As with the rest of America, the 20th anniversary of 9/11 brings forth painful memories, but it is day we have vowed to Never Forget.

Better Informed Candidates

Friday, August 27, 2021  by Bailey

Within a job market that is candidate rich, potential hires have options. Talented individuals are able to research heavily before targeting new companies to pursue. According to our experience, key motivators are company reputation and growth potential. Candidates can easily find information on management style, work life balance experiences, real opportunities for advancement, and general workplace culture. A company that has an established reputation for providing an employee focused environment and is communicative regarding objectives is attractive to potential candidates. Encouraging current team members to get the good word out can only help build better bridges to securing top talent for the company.

According to the following article from LinkedIn:

  • 92% would consider leaving their current jobs if offered another role with a company that had an excellent corporate reputation. (3BL ASSOCIATION)
  •  50% of candidates say they wouldn’t work for a company with a bad reputation – even for a pay increase. (BETTER TEAM)
  •  Nearly 80% of Millennials look for people and culture fit with employers, followed by career potential. (INC.COM)

Video chat proficiency is valuable skill to have in the current job market. As many companies are evolving into remote or partial on-site schedules for their employees, the ability to effectively communicate via video chat is paramount to value adding success in the role. During the pandemic, the majority of our interviewing and subsequent candidate hires were faciltated through video chat so the evaluatiion for this skill began during the interviewing process. The adaptation to the new way of communicating was established during the pandemic but in many organizations, it is a method that is here to stay. 
 

A new survey by ResumeBuilder.com reveals video chat proficiency is the most valued skill according to hiring managers who say the pandemic affected the skills they’re targeting.  They surveyed 1,250 hiring managers across multiple industries to identify the most valued remote-work skills and how organizations plan to attract and retain workers. 

Additional findings include:

  • Half of hiring managers say the pandemic has affected which skills they are seeking
  • Video chat proficiency and adaptability are the most valued skills
