Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Michael White, Founder of MashTank | Are your teams delivering what they're fully capable of? People are quitting their jobs in droves. This isn’t new information in 2022. We’ve all seen some version of the numbers on the “Great Resignation.” You have also seen that this isn’t just because of the pandemic. Yes, employees disproportionately affected by Covid-19 (frontline workers, women in caregiving roles) are facing increased levels of burnout. But it doesn’t stop with them, and it didn’t start with the pandemic. This trend of quitting has been on the rise since 2009 . Some might attribute this to the increased dialogue on mental health or the rising cost of living besides stagnant wages. As people get more confident leaving their 9-to-5s, companies (especially corporations that don’t quickly adapt to worker demands, such as being 100% remote) are scrambling to hire and retain to keep up with losing their … [Read more...] about Care Over Comp: Understanding Why Your People Are Looking Elsewhere For Work

Floyd Mayweather | Boxing | $285 million | Mayweather appears at the top thanks to his heft pay check in a bout with Conor McGregor in 2017 which he won. He pocketed $275 million from the 36-minute match. Mayweather has topped the chart for the fourth time in last seven years. Floyd Mayweather Jr. easily knocked out his opponent in the second round of an exhibition match in Japan Sunday, said he had fun and promised to be back next year. I'd like to thank the whole country of Japan, the 45-year-old boxing legend, who won all 50 of his professional fights, told a packed crowd at Saitama Super Arena, north of Tokyo. Mikuru Asakura, 30, a popular Japanese MMA, or mixed martial artist, fighter, managed to land a few punches in his boxing debut. But Asakura crumpled to the floor in the second round when Mayweather became more aggressive. When Mayweather landed a right hook in his face toward the end of that round, Asakura went down again and was unable to get up. I don't … [Read more...] about Floyd Mayweather Jr. easily wins by knockout in Japan exhibition
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Michael White, Founder of MashTank | Discretionary time is life. In the ecosystem of your company, the most important life cycle taking place is that of your people: attracting the right talent, onboarding and optimizing them and then offboarding with the knowledge of why they left and what you can learn from it. And in theory, most leaders understand this life cycle. People will come and go, as is the nature of life, and we as leaders can perform exit interviews to learn along the way. But from my experience of working with executives and teams over the last 25 years, here’s what I actually see happen most of the time: 1. In the first phase, you attract some people. Depending on your culture and unique value propositions as an employer, you may or may not be attracting the perfect people from the get-go. 2. In the next phase, you onboard those people. 3. Eventually, over time, people leave and you … [Read more...] about How To Master The Offboarding Process In Order To Master Retention
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin President, USA Express Legal and Investigative Services and Secure Background Check. Licensed private investigator. Picture this: You had an argument three months ago on social media with a stranger over the hot-button issue of the day. You were provoked because you felt the other poster was such a jerk, and you had to stand your ground. You didn’t even care that much about the topic (what was it again?), but somebody had to set that person straight. You didn’t love the way you conducted yourself, but the comments are buried under millions of new posts and forgotten now, anyway, so who cares, right? Well, someone might. And that someone might be your next potential employer. As the president of a company that provides pre-employment screenings for clients, it’s my job to find everything I can about a candidate through their social media. I don’t make any decisions for clients; I simply hand over the … [Read more...] about How Social Media Can Reveal The Best (And Worst) Of Your Employment Candidates
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin During a recent conversation, someone living in an affluent New York suburb mentioned their concern about traveling into midtown Manhattan using the Metro North system, and having to switch to the subway at the Harlem station on 125 th Street. Their fear was that, as older white people, they could be an attractive target for would-be muggers. Having lived in Harlem for a decade, I have become accustomed to people’s surprised reaction when I tell them where I live, and the inevitable questions about whether—being a white man—I feel safe living there. I can attest that these concerns and negative perceptions are misplaced: Harlem is a great place to live and it is very safe. I have never been mugged or felt threatened by anyone, have never had anything stolen, and can walk around safely at any time of day or night. After the recent conversation mentioned above, I became curious about the actual risk of being the victim of … [Read more...] about Leaders Should Collect DEI Data Because Harlem Is Safer Than Midtown Manhattan
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin AMD's Ryzen 9 7950X is the third generation of desktop 16-core processors and has a lot to live up to. It represents the pinnacle of mainstream desktop performance, demands a premium price and needs to deliver in games and content creation alike. In this Ryzen 9 7950X review, we'll be comparing it against its predecessor and the competition to see if it's the new king of the hill. You can also see my review of the Ryzen 7700X in the link here . Pricing and specs The Ryzen 9 7950X will retail for $699, £740 in the UK and around 850 Euros. It sticks to the same 16-core, 32-thread philosophy of its predecessors, but as well as a new 5nm architecture and more L2 cache, it also has a much higher TDP - 170W compared to 105W for the previous 16-core CPUs. This should allow it to hit much higher frequencies and offer more performance. Out of the box it was hitting 5.7GHz regularly on one core and … [Read more...] about AMD Ryzen 9 7950X Review: Faster Than Intel’s Core i9-12900K?
