Colosi Associates deeper dive into the Equal Pay Act. A couple of items are clear, but many questions are raised. How might a small company even begin to tackle it?
California has always prohibited employers from paying employees less than other employees of the opposite sex for equal work. Of course this applies to employers of any size, compared to some laws that depend on the number of employees.
Time to let the secret out that Colosi Associates offers an hourly recruiting option to augment your internal efforts for roles across functions. Sometimes retained search may not be the first or only avenue.
A few people recently asked me how to go about a job search. Where do you even start if you've been with the same company for some time or just coming back into the market after an absence? Technology changes daily, how does that play in? Is everything done on LinkedIn today? One thing that hasn't changed ever (that I know of) is that more than 60% of roles are filled through networks, not through recruiters or postings. What does this (still) mean?
In the ancient practice of Feng Shui, the energies of any given space are balanced to assure health and good fortune for the people inhabiting it. To bring order to the environment, practitioners often begin by clearing out clutter for energy to flow. In short, they tidy up.
The timeless truth? “Candidates are hired for skills and fired for fit.” Everyone has a story of the clues they missed or chose to ignore and later regretted it. Cultural mis-hires need not be repeated. Hiring the wrong person could cost up to 15 times salary. Don’t let this happen to you!
Can you imagine if you evaluated candidates for your executive hire the way voters hire the President of the United States (POTUS)?
It’s a unique opportunity for American hiring manager voters. In no other context can they legally hire based on any objective or subjective criteria – gender, race, religion, fiscal or social policy, cadence of speech or anything at all.
