Leadership Sets Companies Apart

Thursday, June 4, 2015  by julie

Great leaders are differentiators, they can impact the effectiveness of the work environment and the discretionary effort by a team.  Leaders that can acclimate and adapt a style to a situation are the most effective. 

Research by companies, like the HayGroup, on leadership have shown there are six leadership styles that employees can apply to the situations they encounter:

·        Affiliative – create harmony and avoid conflict; relies on building internal relationships and consensus
·        Authorative – provides long-term direction and vision; relies on “dialogue” with others
·        Coaching – focuses on long-term development of employees
·        Coercive – immediate compliance; relies on “directives” rather than “direction”
·        Democratic – very participative; building commitment and generating new ideas
·        Pacesetting – establishing high standards of excellence for completing tasks

The most effective style depends on the situation, task, employee that needs to be managed in addition to other variables like times pressures, risks, resources, etc.  Great leaders are able to diagnose the demands of the circumstance and use multiple leadership styles to persevere.

As a company, you face an unlimited number of different situations.  As an organization, you need to ask the following critical questions:

·        What does the situation require of us to compete in a challenging environment?
·        Do I have the bench strength to handle the situation at present?
·        Am I grooming the next generation of leaders?
·        Can I diagnose the leadership style(s) that are most “natural” to our organization?

Companies need leaders that complement each other, but also need to acquire leaders to compensate for what you do not have.  Companies that are open to this dialogue and aware of blind spots internally are forward thinking, and ahead of the talent acquisition curve.

How can we help you find top talent?

We present individuals distinctive to the personality of the organization. We evaluate on technical qualifications, cultural fit, leadership capabilities/styles, critical and creative thinking capabilities, and interpersonal skills. 

We have deep functional experience and have placed over 3,000+ individuals over our 25+ history within these business functions:

·        Accounting & Finance
·        Compliance, Legal & Risk (CLR)
·        Engineering, Operations & Supply Chain (EOSC)
·        Human Resources
·        Marketing, Sales & Strategy (MSS)
·        Technology

What Are Millennials Looking For In The Job Market?

Tuesday, May 19, 2015  by julie

According to a recent "Herman Trend Alert" by Joyce Gioia, Strategic Business Futurist, with data provided by a Futurestep study, money doesn't talk to Millennials.

"They used to value money over all of the other aspects of employment. Now, Millennials are 'placing greater value on understanding what a company stands for and how, as employees, they can play a role in growing the organization into a better, stronger brand'. When asked what matters most to employees who are part of the Millennial generation the greatest number of respondents (23%) said it was 'the ability to make an impact on the business', followed by 'a clear path for advancement' (20%) and 'development and ongoing feedback' (16 percent). Income came in at fourth place at only 13%. When executives were asked "what makes Millennials 'choose one job over another', more than a third (38 percent) said 'visibility and buy-in to the vision of the organization' while 28 percent said 'a clear path for advancement'. 'Job title and pay' came in third place at 18 percent."

At Bohan & Bradstreet, our recruiters are taking into account the new priorities of today's young workforce by partnering closely with our clients to clearly communicate opportunities to contribute to the big picture while fostering advancement and personal growth.

Turnover - Is It Good or Bad?

Tuesday, April 21, 2015  by julie

Low turnover has long been perceived as indicative of a strong company. The rationale makes sense-a company must be doing something right if employees remain working there.

However, the issue is much more complex.  Employees stay at companies formany reasons which may relate very little to the company. Employees may be:

  • Under-skilled
  • Unmotivated to advance
  • Anxious that the economy is too unstable
  • Comfortable and complacent in a known environment

Turnover can certainly be disruptive to a business, impacting employee morale and performance.  It also has real costs, from job postings to interviewer time to lost productivity to higher salaries and sign-on bonuses.  It's no wonder that many employers want to avoid turnover. 

But sometimes change is exactly what's needed.  Whether employees are let go or leave voluntarily, turnover can be a smart opportunity for employers to select, hire, and develop new talent into the organization.  People who are excited about the company and have the capability to perform at a high level can make a significant difference. Some turnover is actually good for the company!

 We want to hear from you. Share how has turnover been for your company?
