There is little consistency between experts regarding how profound the impact of automation on employment will be in the near future.

While some fear that many jobs will be lost, mainly those of the youngest, oldest, and less-educated workers, others claim that automation will create new jobs and fulfill the gap.

But with new technologies and automation already kicking in, there seem to be many benefits to both the employees and companies – from improving the employees’ experience on one side to boosting companies’ efficiency on the other.

Not all business owners and managers are tech-savvy. This article guides you on how and why you should embrace automation in your business operations to improve your employees’ engagement and take your company to the next level.

Why maximise your intellectual capital?

We’ve all seen the people inside a business referred to as assets, but that’s not entirely true. The real asset is what people bring to the table – from their skills and talents to knowledge of your business and the wider world.

This collective asset – the rich blend of information available to your business – is often called intellectual capital. Just like financial capital, it’s a resource you can use to reach new clients, improve the way you do things, and grow your business.

It doesn’t stop with people. Your intellectual capital can also include your existing relationships with clients and informed, proven ways of operating.

The challenge, though, is that intellectual capital is incredibly difficult to quantity and measure – so how can it be maximised and improved? And, for the average recruitment business, how can online learning help?

How to Be Compliant During the Hiring Process

Assembling a strong workforce of true MVPs is both an exciting and time-consuming process. New, well-experienced and highly-skilled employees can indeed help your company achieve long-term goals and incremental objectives, but finding the right people is not exactly a walk in the park.

Not only does the hiring process have to be flawless and streamlined, but it also needs to remain compliant with all the necessary laws and regulations. There are numerous moving parts to assemble and technical moves to synchronize the right way, otherwise, your company might end up paying hefty penalties and fines.

This is why it is critical for your recruiting team to make sure they are deploying best hiring practices in terms of compliance.

With that in mind, here are several surefire tips to consider when creating your recruitment strategy for your business.

Does consistent service really matter in recruitment?

We’ve all heard the phrase a million times: consistency is key. It’s there in how we’re taught at school, how we’re told to parent our children and, often, in the workplace.

But one of the most exciting things about recruitment is the way it brings together so many different personality types. Some are born go-getters, encouraging healthy competition in the race to a bigger commission. Others nurture and nourish great candidates, gently guiding them to the perfect role.

We all have our own way of doing things. But, as a leader, you need some kind of uniformity in how you operate – a structured way of doing things that you can understand, monitor and maintain. That’s how you give clients the same experience, year after year.

But why does consistent service matter? Is it an essential for every business – or an overrated benchmark that doesn’t make a meaningful difference?

Reward Centre Update 2021

At Recruitment Juice, we’ve always put people at the centre of everything we do. This is why we launched the Juice Reward Centre – a place where your completed courses become ‘coins’ that go towards real-life rewards. Teaming up with a charity called United World Schools on a project called Teach the Unreached, every 200 coins becomes a day of school for a child in Cambodia.

So far we’ve already paid for over 14,000 days of schooling in Cambodia (or 2,800 weeks or 72 years!)– but it’s more than teaching skills. In remote areas, many Cambodian children spend their time working on the plantations, collecting resources like water, and isolated from children and adults outside their families or ethnic groups. Generations remain illiterate, creating a cycle of poverty that’s impossible to break.

The work of United World Schools doesn’t just give children the basic education they deserve. By transforming futures of individuals, it transforms the future of families and entire communities.

Can you actually measure ROI on training?

It’s the debate that goes back decades and has fuelled thousands of training industry blog posts: can you really measure the ROI on training?

Not in terms of productivity. Not in terms of participant satisfaction.  In terms of the most important thing of all: revenue.

The answer is theoretically simple: yes, of course you can. But the reality of getting that measurement is significantly more complex – and might be missing the point entirely.

Burnout In The Workplace

The Covid-19 pandemic has led to remote working becoming more normalised, and even though there are many benefits of remote working it also comes with its downsides. A lot of people are finding that they are working extra hours due to remote working, turning them into modern-day workaholics.

In a study carried out by Visier, they found that 89% of employees reported experiencing burnout over the past years, with 70% of employees stating they would leave their job to join a company that offers resources to reduce burnout. They also asked workers what they believe would help to reduce burnout in the workplace with 39% stating that flexible hours would help, 31% wanting better mental health resources, 25% said paid sick days and 24% were looking for a wellness program.
