Don’t miss out on this opportunity to gain substantial information on a topic that, when handled wrongly, can bring about unnecessary and unintended liabilities.
The Legalist reminds us that competent HR staff members can add value to companies, protect employers from lawsuits and cut costs in the long run.
My practice frequently involves helping companies with actual or potential claims against or from former employees. Unfortunately for these clients, by the time a claim arises, their options are limited to “damage control,” — essentially just controlling the costs and consequences.
But some employers still making false assumptions based on stereotypes
By Danielle Harder
While there are some differences between what men and women look for in an employer and a job, they are not all that stark.
That means employers making broad generalizations are taking risks, according to several recruitment experts.
While 63 per cent of recruiters feel there are some distinctions between the sexes, they are subtle and based on many factors including a candidate’s life and career stage, according to an informal survey of 110 recruiters across the country in April by Hays Specialist Recruitment Canada.
“It really comes down to the individual,” says Rowan O’Grady, president of Hays’ Canadian operations. “Women, at a certain stage in their lives, may be concerned with things such as how far they are from school or daycare, and flexibility, while men seem to — at times — place more value on the prestige of the job, for example.”
Dawn Longshaw hosted the Social Media Recruiting table at the BC HRMA HR Cafe 2012, March 28 at BCIT and lent her expertise to HR students from across the Lower Mainland in addressing the question: How do I evolve my Career in the Field of Human Resources within the current conditions?
We are pleased to announce that as we move into 2012 we will now benefit from the advice, counsel and expertise of a group of respected business professionals on our newly formed Advisory Board. We would like to thank each of them for their time and their support.
