LANCASTER, Pa., March 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Workplace relationships are a vital element of a productive and positive work environment, and Christian Business Consultants, In His Name HR, are offering Impact 360, a newly developed leadership tool that will lend more transparency to businesses, available from April 1, 2016 through InHisNameHR.com.
Impact 360 is a tool that provides workplace leaders with anonymous, aggregated and meaningful feedback from the people who work with them. Depending on the organization, this could include the employee’s manager, peers, and direct reports.
Receiving feedback from these diverse sources allows each leader to discover how their colleagues view their effectiveness as an employee, coworker and staff member.
President and Founder of In His Name HR, Mark Griffin, said Impact 360 is an invaluable tool that allows feedback and constructive criticism to be given honestly and professionally.
Many job seekers spend countless hours on job boards and resume submission sites. There is a better way. Enjoy learning how with Jamaal Abdul-Alim of Diverse Issues In Higher Education. The central theme of the article is to not get bogged down in the hiring funnel. The following is an excerpt from the article.
Despite the growing number of websites designed to connect college graduates to jobs, job seekers should focus on alternative ways to get in contact with the people who hire and fire.
That is the advice that Mark Griffin, a veteran human resources professional, offers in his newly released book, titled College to Career: The Student Guide to Career and Life Navigation.
“I would have to say that college students and others have very little chance of making it though the filter to actually get an interview, let alone make it to the point of job offer,” Griffin told Diverse, citing the “hiring funnel” and data that show that only 25 out of every 100 résumés among applicants will be seen by a hiring manager, and just four to six of those will lead to an actual interview.
“Some of these vacancies receive thousands of applicants per posting,” Griffin said. “Therefore your chances are decreased dramatically.”
Griffin’s remarks come at a time of increased emphasis on a college education as the means to a good job. It also comes at a time of a proliferation of websites — some free and some paid — meant to connect college graduates to the marketplace.
