  • Alaska Airlines' satellite guidance technology is a model for NextGen
    Alaska Airlines developed satellite guidance to help it land planes in the challenging geography of Alaska, and that technology is now the model for the Federal Aviation Administration's NextGen plans. In a state that relies heavily on air travel, Alaska Airlines has also increased its business successfully. "Growth solves a lot of problems, and Alaska has been able to grow capacity much faster than the rest of the industry," said Hunter Keay, an airline analyst at Wolfe Trahan.

  • 2 places where your recruitment process may be losing value
    Those looking to reduce recruitment costs should look at their employee-referral program and their jobs website, Lauren Smith writes. The most common problems with referral programs are that they are too hard to use and that workers are rarely reminded to participate. The biggest problem with jobs websites is that they are ineffective at building relationships with candidates, a problem that is eased if a jobs site is turned into a talent community, Smith writes.
