Educating a Better Customer Service Representative

By Joe Lipham, Training Account Manager, Signature Worldwide My 18-year old daughter was preparing for her first night as a food server for a major hotel chain. She excitedly talked about her new job, and as a proud dad and hospitality professional, I wanted to offer her my insights. As I started into the “dad speech,” my daughter waved me off and said, “Dad, you and Mom made sure we had good manners!”

Finding the Hidden Treasure in a Job Hunt

By Libby Carter Current economic conditions have made job-hunting a necessary art form. Potential employees constantly must create new ways in which to differentiate themselves in the market. Since job hunting has become such a long, pain-staking process, one might compare it to a treasure hunt for the most valuable prize—a job. In this case, the one who finds the treasure is the individual who takes a new, fresh approach to accomplishing the task at hand. What does it take to find that “treasured” job?

How Intel Salespeople Went from Good to Great

By Margery Weinstein Realizing that selling methods from the PC industry would not open doors in non-traditional markets, Intel Corp.’s senior leaders challenged the company’s Sales and Marketing group to develop sales talent to better drive Intel’s overall growth strategy and transformation efforts.

Making Job Fairs Work for You

By Brent O’Bryan, SPHR, Vice President, Learning and Development, AlliedBarton Security Services

What Workers Want

By Dr. Jack Wiley, Founder and Executive director, Kenexa High Performance Institute For more than 30 years we’ve been asking workers around the world what they most want from the organizations for which they work. The results are fascinating and explain the basic truths about employee needs and desires. They also, and possibly most strikingly, reveal that managers and organizations that give their employees what they want outperform those that don’t.

Dispelling the Myths of Creating a Winning Corporate Culture

By Joseph Gianni, President and CEO, 2logical Few would deny the majestic power of a winning corporate culture. When the odds are stacked against the success of a mission critical corporate objective, a strong corporate culture can persevere through all kinds of challenges and setbacks—and make, well, even the impossible…possible. Even in the most turbulent market conditions, a strong corporate culture can shorten the recovery time from minor or major setbacks by as much as tenfold, when compared to an organization lacking the “right stuff.”

Orchestrating a smooth training transition during a merger or acquisition is never easy. But when it involves the joining of two major airlines, well, fasten your seatbelts. There almost definitely will be turbulence ahead.

Give & Take

By Gail Dutton

Employees in a negotiation training workshop are chatting happily in a company cafeteria near San Francisco. They’re not on break. They’re on assignment. Their objective: to discover three things they didn’t know—and wouldn’t have guessed—about each other. They have two minutes.

B-School vs. C-School

By Margery Weinstein

When you see on a resume that an applicant graduated at the top of his or her business school class, does that necessarily translate into guaranteed success behind the desk at your company? A business school background can’t hurt, but most organizations know it is far from enough. With more individuals touting business school degrees on their resumes, companies are recognizing the need to help these new employees apply what they learned in the classroom to the real world of tight budgets and stretched financial goals.

Last Word: Building Strong Relationships

By Peter Post

When I became involved in the Emily Post Institute teaching about etiquette, I found myself sitting at a lunchroom counter one day scribbling notes for an upcoming talk. The thrust of the talk was the importance of etiquette in building relationships. Etiquette, after all, is more than just a bunch of rules. Its true purpose is to guide us to make choices that build relationships.

By Roy Saunderson

Most orientation and onboarding programs are manager-initiated or online portal-delivered sets of steps, policies and procedures, and general ground rules to function on the job.
