5 reasons to jump at the chance of going on an interview

Posted by Bernie Reifkind on November 9, 2017

Are you feeling pretty comfortable in your current job?  If you are making a decent living, and if the work is “ok” and if your boss is not too terrible, it can be easy to get complacent. Why rock the boat, right?

Until one day, things change.

Your perfect world reveals itself to be not so perfect.  Maybe there is a change in upper management, an annoying new co-worker or at worst: a layoff.

When big things happen against our will, we often wish that we could have known in advance to prepare.  No one knows what the future holds accept the absolute fact that things always change.

When it comes to our careers most of us play offense.  We work hard, we aim to achieve.  But one should never forget that we also need to play some career defense at times.

Going on job interviews-when things are going relatively well- is a productive form of career defense.

When a career opportunity presents itself, jump.  Take a shot.  Someone wants to meet you?

Take the meeting.  Why?

If you’re not constantly striving for new challenges then what are you really doing?  Don’t you owe it to yourself to know what else is out there?  You might find out that your job no longer fits.

Or maybe you want to put some zing back in to your career and your life.  There is something to be said about being invited to go on an interview.  It feels good to feel valued.

The best time to interview is when you do not have to.  Because after all, what is the risk? If you are already employed and you have cash flow you are already ahead of the game.

The flips side is staying put and waiting for the potential shoe to drop.  Do you think that it can’t happen to you?  Don’t be delusional.   .

When things change, they change again.   For that reason alone, give yourself permission and go on an interview and see what else is out there.  This is a very healthy career strategy for 5 reasons:

  1. By interviewing, you just might discover something that never even occurred to you before, such as a fresh new way to look at your career.
  2. You might meet someone that gives you a fresh idea that you hadn’t even considered.
  3. You can learn what the competition is doing and find out if your compensation is in line with the market place.
  4. It’s great for your ego! It doesn’t mean that you have to accept a new job, but if feels so nice to be wanted. Feeling good makes for a more fulfilling life.
  5. Interviewing is a great way to validate just how fortunate you are in your present job.  Most people think that the grass is greener somewhere else only to discover that this is a delusion.  After an interview you can truly access if staying put is the best option.

Here’s the only reason to ever hire anyone

Posted by Bernie Reifkind on October 9, 2017

To make money. PERIOD.  After all, isn’t that the reason that a business exists?

A hiring decision is an investment decision to solve a need: to grow a company or to stop from losing money because a key employee is gone for whatever reason.

So the real issue is that hiring solves a need.  That’s the key reason why people buy almost anything, whether or not we are consciously aware of our actions.  Of course we look for value when we buy, but at its basic core: we buy because of a need or a perceived need.

Employers:  when you hire someone make sure that you are hiring to solve but more importantly make sure that you are “buying the solution.”  In plain and simple terms, make sure that you have properly identified the business need that you have and why that need exists, then and only then hire/buy the solution.”

That’s right, hire the solution.  Is the company growing?  Hire more staff.  Is the company doing well and then a key employee leaves?  Hire more staff.

When you hire the solution, you are buying down the business need or enhancing business profit and ultimately solving the issue at hand.

It’s all about making money.

In conclusion, buying or investing in the solution should be the strategy when making a hiring decision.

Employee absenteeism is killing your business- here’s why

Posted by Bernie Reifkind on October 6, 2017

For a lot of people, Monday morning is a drag.

As a result, Monday is usually the day that most employees “call in sick.”  Yes good old Monday, the day that jump starts the business work week.  Monday is the day when a business is once again building momentum after the weekend.

So Monday morning absent employees can cause a serious stumble right out of the gate.

For employers, the constant absent employee throws a huge monkey wrench into the machinery of an operation.   Here’s the thing- a “no show” employee should be a “no go” employee for most businesses.

As a business owner of a healthcare executive search firm, I know first hand that very few things about my business aggravates me more than employee absenteeism.

Of course things happen in our lives that might prevent us from coming to work.  We get sick, our kids get sick, etc.

But come on.  Many employees burn threw whatever sick days they have accrued within the first few months of a new year.  Not good.

So what do you do if you are an employer with an employee plagued with absenteeism?

For starters: stop being held hostage to an absent employee.  You are being delusional if you think things might change- so take action immediately.

First, provide a clear warning to an employee with absenteeism issues.  Even better if the warning is in writing.

If it keeps happening than an absent employee needs to be fired.  Plain and simple.

Replace that person with a show up employee and watch the results.  No employer should ever fall into the delusional trap that an employee in the work force is “irreplaceable.”

No employer should ever hold on to an employee with absenteeism issues. Maybe it is time for a permanent absence.

When evaluating an employee, it’s NOT just about performance.  Showing up consistently is just as critical in performance evaluations as performance.

In summary, if you are a business owner or a manager, wake up!

Stop your own absence and take a cold hard look at employee absenteeism.
