If you are an HR manager, imagine for a moment, if you had a million prospective employees knocking at your door looking for a job every single year. Surveys show that most people dread going to work every day. Imagine for a moment, what it would be like to work in an organization that is often more fun than being at home with your family. Are these two situations a pipe dream? No, it’s not a dream, it’s reality. Google, the iconic Californian- based search engine giant, is such a workplace. Consistently voted one of the best places to work in corporate America, Google receives 3,000 applications a day—which equates to one million applications a year—from people wanting a job. They are all chasing about 4,000 jobs. Employees who are lucky enough to work at Google claim that they often have more fun at work than at home. Yet Google is posting record profits. These remarkable features are no accident. Eric Schmidt, Google’s executive chairman, believes that Google’s competitive advantage in the marketplace is not superior products and services: it is their workplace culture. Google is an employer of choice.

The Manpower Group recently announced that the global talent shortage has reached a 7-year high. Their 9th Annual Talent Shortage Survey results show that 36% of global employers are having difficulty finding candidates that possess the desired technical competencies and experience with soft skills. The percentage of employers citing difficulty in the US is 40%. Manpower's CEO, Jonas Prising, said, "For nearly a decade skilled trades and STEM positions are among the top 10 hardest jobs to fill, both globally and in the US."

I’ve just finished facilitating a senior leadership program for a technology company where the participants got into a heated debate about the relative importance of management and leadership; how they are similar; how they are different; and their relative importance for business success and for the individual. The group spent time exploring the impact for an organization that is over-led and under-managed and the consequences for one that is under-led and over-managed. It was an eye-opening discussion, one that has been repeated time and time again. Their conclusion – it’s not about being a leader or being a manager, no matter your level in an organization success is about being an effective leader and manager.

Managers often viewed as task-oriented, and not necessarily focused on their employees. Leaders on the other hand are viewed as people-oriented; they impact and influence as well as work through and motivate their employees, utilizing their resources to perform assigned tasks in the most productive and profitable way possible.

“We’re on break!” the warehouse attendant barked in response to my repeated, “Excuse me!” I was at the pickup counter awaiting a lawn mower part. It was my third encounter with apathy that Monday morning. The first was the woman at coffee shop who gave me a curt, “what’s good about it?” response to my morning greeting. The next was the gas station owner who gave me no verbal response or eye contact as I enriched his coffers by twenty bucks. And now, “We’re on break!”

If you don’t know what a video job description is, it is a short video clip where the hiring manager and team members describe the exciting aspects of a particular job in order to convince top-quality but reluctant prospects to apply. A video job description is a supplement to, rather than a replacement for, the standard and often tedious 100 percent text narrative job description. You should consider adopting video job descriptions because they are about to become “the next big thing” in convincing prospects to apply.

New managers enable growth but endanger performance! In early 2013, e-commerce dynamo Groupon (NASDAQ: GRPN) found itself face-to-face with a daunting challenge: its frontline managers — many of whom were in their very first management roles — were struggling. It’s a common challenge among fast-growing tech companies, and Groupon’s growth wasn’t just fast. It was astronomical. In less than four years, the company had gone from a small startup to a global powerhouse with more than 11,000 employees in 47 countries.

It is often said that people are an organization’s greatest asset. It’s a nice idea, but only partly true. A more accurate statement comes from Jim Collins, author of Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Lead and Others Don’t. He said that people are not your greatest asset; the right people are.

With the arrival of the New Year, Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) was allowed to lapse. For employers engaged in the WOTC hiring credit program, however, this lapse is no great cause for concern. Congress has historically proven just as capable at permitting WOTC to lapse as it has at reauthorizing the credit and retroactive collection soon thereafter.
