Make your resume
Create focal points

The hiring manager is typically flooded with resume applications. So you only have about 2 minutes of their attention span.

Here are some ways you can draw their attention to the important things:

  • Put the most relevant experiences at the top, don’t worry about chronology.
  • Bold the important parts. Don’t go overboard here.
  • Use numbers and awards to draw attention.
  • Remove irrelevant experiences.
Use numbers

Ever heard of the term “A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words”? Well, numbers are worth a thousand words on Resumes.

Here are some ways you can use numbers:

  • Consistently outperformed sales targets by 10%
  • Supported over 4 functional areas with financial analysis
  • Increased customer satisfaction rating to 8.6/10
Match keywords

Hiring managers will scan your resume to see if you match any of those keywords and sometimes in higher-demand positions, they will do this through a bot.

Take and add keywords from the job description to your resume. Create a skill section and put some keywords in there.

3 ways to celebrate the holidays with your remote team

3 ways to celebrate the holidays with your remote team

3 ways to celebrate the holidays with your remote team

With so many ways to connect online, companies have endless opportunities for virtual celebrations during the holiday season. Here are some of our favorites!

remote team
1. Host a Virtual Holiday Party

With free dinner, cocktails, and a chance to dress up and hobnob with coworkers, swanky office holiday parties are often the highlight of the season for employees and an important part of a company’s culture. But just because you can’t have an in-person fete right now doesn’t mean you have to nix the company holiday celebration!

You can host a virtual holiday party on any video conferencing platform (like Houseparty or Google Hangouts), but Zoom has some features that can really up the fun factor. For instance, you can utilize Zoom Breakout Rooms as different “rooms” of the party, and party-goers can move from room to room to chat with coworkers. Even better, you can make each room a theme with a specific team-building game or contest to keep employees engaged.

You can ask attendees to dress up, but keep in mind that a fun dress code (think ugly holiday sweaters or silly seasonal ties) will probably be more appealing to your employees than something formal.

2. Organize a Holiday Gift Exchange

Being a remote company doesn’t mean you can’t encourage the exchanging of inter-office holiday gifts—you’ll just have to do it remotely! A virtual “Secret Santa” gift exchange enables employees to get to know each other a little more and embrace the holidays as they shop online for others on the team.
One important thing to consider: Mandatory gift exchanges may make employees feel stressed rather than spirited, so it’s wise to make any office gift exchange optional. That way, no one feels pressured to spend money (or time) they don’t have buying or shipping gifts for coworkers.

3. Create a Holiday Channel

In the day-to-day of remote work, when you don’t ever see your remote team face to face, it’s easy to forget that they all have lives and families outside of their jobs. When it comes down to it, the holidays are about spending time with (or appreciating, if we can’t see them in person) those we love, so celebrating what your employees do when they’re not working can help to make remote work more of a “human” experience.

If you don’t already have one, start a holiday channel on Slack or whichever messaging platform your company uses. Encourage employees to share holiday pictures, fun anecdotes, family traditions, recipes, music playlists, or holiday activity ideas. You’ll be surprised how many people are eager to share their favorite holiday experiences with their teammates.

Some changes that employment suffered will not return even if the pandemic is over.

Work trends
Hybrid work becomes mainstream

Hybrid work is here to stay. With 75% of hybrid or remote knowledge workers agreeing their expectations for working flexibly have increased, there is no doubt that the future is hybrid.

In fact, if an organization were to go back to a fully on-site arrangement, it would risk losing up to 39% of its workforce. You must create a new, human-centric model for the hybrid environment by designing work around employee-driven flexibility, culture connectedness and human leadership.

There’s a shortage of critical talent

HR leaders are under more pressure than ever to fill roles with those with critical skills to meet market needs and drive organizational change.

While there’s an urgency to obtain scarce, critical capabilities, there’s also an effort to optimize costs in the current economic climate.

To fill skills needs both effectively and efficiently, broaden the range of talent strategies under consideration, either as part of your strategic planning or as needs arise.

For example, develop processes, norms, and infrastructure that facilitate the mobility of employees from their current roles to other existing or newly created roles within the organization.

This creates an internal labor market and makes it easier and more attractive for employees to move jobs without exiting the company.

Turnover will increase

Turnover has significantly increased when employees are required to come back into the office full-time, and 52% of employees say flexible work policies will affect the decision to stay at their organization.

Turnover will continue to increase because the emotional costs of leaving the organization are lower when hybrid and because there’s more choice in employers when location is no longer a factor.

To combat this sustained turnover, connect hybrid employees to the organization’s culture and invest in talent processes to expand employee networks.

When everyone is working from home, something can be more difficult. Here you can find some work tools to make it easier!

TimeBilling

When you have a team working in the office, everyone clocks in and clocks out. Usually, you have a centralized timeclock that allows this to happen. But when everyone is working from home, it can be more difficult. You don’t want to just assume people are working when they should be. You want to make sure that they’re doing what they’re supposed to do. That’s where TimeBilling comes in. This app will allow you to track the amount of time that your team members are spending working on different tasks in your business.

Trello

You can use it as an individual tracker to keep track of your assignments, or your entire team can use it to assign different tasks to different people on the team. It’s also a unique system because it’s the best Kanban-style option. For those who already know and love Kanban, that’s all you probably need to know. But for those who don’t, it’s a simple system to learn.

Miro

Do you need a way to share information and ideas with your team? Maybe you and your team (or at least a subset of them) need to be able to communicate about different tasks, or you need to be able to collaborate on a project. If that’s the case, then Miro is an excellent option for you. You can collaborate on Google Docs in the G Suite, but Miro gives you more of a whiteboard style. This can be even easier to collaborate on because you can work everything through the phases necessary to get from the beginning of an idea to the end.
