Recruiting & Retention 
  • Treat your workers like a pack of huskies
    As individuals, husky dogs are notoriously headstrong, but put them in a sled team and they'll work together, Jack Zenger writes. Many employees are the same: Their productivity and value only emerge when you put them in the right context. "Sometimes ... you will never recognize an employee's full potential until they are placed in the right area with the right people," Zenger writes.

  • The case for being active on Google+
    Google+ can help recruiters organize their contacts, deliver targeted messages to specific groups of people and improve the Google search rankings of the links that they post, Dunya Carter writes. "If you have put off learning more about Google+, then it may be time to dive into Google's world. You may soon find this social tool as your priority source for recruiting and looking for the best minds in the business," Carter writes.

  • Analysis: New regulations help reduce risk in pension plans
    The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act should help stabilize pension plans because the law provides incentives for plan sponsors to bring plans to full funding while reducing risk, lawyer Jeff Mamorsky writes. Other regulations, such as the Dodd-Frank Act, also address pension fund risk, he writes. CFO.com (12/26) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story
