Rostie & Associates Is Attending Collision 2021

The Collision Conference is here again and we couldn’t be more excited.

The heralded tech conference heard round the world has been a mainstay in Toronto since 2018, which was a clear-cut nod to the rapid growth of Canada’s new tech hub.

Although this year’s conference will take place virtually, there is still a lot to be excited about.

Spanning three days and with a great lineup of notable speakers and enterprise corporations set to attend, this year’s conference should shape up to be one of the best yet.

Given the critical role technology has played in response to COVID-19, this year’s Collision Conference should certainly be one of the most important ever. In 2020, technology provided a lifeline to companies worldwide and with that, there will be a lot of discussion as to how it can be made even more effective.

Collision provides a platform for start-ups, small, medium, and large businesses to share everything tech as one global community.

With the expected 40,000 attendees from over 100 countries, there will be no shortage of topics, discussions, and of course, the biggest opportunity of all, recruiting the best talent from around the globe.

As a start-up or small business, scaling to a large corporation may be a bit more daunting than ever perceived when it comes to hiring new employees.

So, how can they compete when it comes to acquiring top talent?

Use a tech recruiter with a track record of success.

Rostie & Associates, who are celebrating our 30th year in business, have had the privilege of working with such large corporations as Cisco, Microsoft, and HP.   We’ve also been a strong supporter of the start-up business ecosystem providing critical placements in these small, soon to be enterprise companies such as Fortinet, Q1 Labs and Sonrai Security.

With years of experience, knowledge, and adaptability, we have fostered a reputation of providing only the best of the best in every region of the world.

Are you a company looking to acquire new talent to push you to the next level of success?

Find out how Rostie & Associates can help make that a reality.

The Season of (Employee) Discontent

The Season of (Employee) Discontent

 

The Season of (Employee) Discontent

The work-from-home model has become the new norm during the Covid-19 pandemic and while we have all had some time to adjust, have you been wondering how happy and engaged your employees really are?

Well, based on the findings of a study by Hays Canada, the answer is, not very.

According to the article, “49% of employees were seriously considering leaving their job”.

While these numbers are disturbing enough, in some ways, they are understandable. What’s truly shocking is that over half of the employers are doing nothing to help or keep their employees engaged!

Even during “normal” times, I heard similar complaints from candidates who were considering other work opportunities, things like lack of encouragement, direction or personal reward in their workplace are issues regardless of the pandemic, it seems.

Rewards, of course, take many forms.  Whether it’s recognition for going above and beyond, a high-five for a job well done, additional training, opportunities for growth or just a free pizza lunch; it doesn’t take that much to make an employee feel valued.

Even employees that are used to, and thrive, working from home, still want to know their work is appreciated and recognized.

While there are many benefits to working from home, it can, and has been, an extremely difficult transition for many employees.  They can feel that they have been cast adrift and now have to grapple with the challenges of the “new normal” – while worrying about the economy, their job security and learning to separate work and home – while at home!

As an employer, meetings on Zoom and counting keystrokes are not enough to ensure happiness or engagement. If you had thought it was, I urge you to think again.

A great number of employees feel isolated and uncertain about their future, making them more likely to look elsewhere for employment.

Please don’t discount the emotional and social aspect of employment.  A major part of working for any company is feeling that you’re part of the team, that you’re working towards a shared goal and that you feel like you belong! If we take that away, and what do we have left?

So, why do so many employees stay if they aren’t wholly satisfied with their situation? More often than not, this boils down to them liking their team, or manager, and a desire to stay loyal. If that’s doesn’t exist, or it’s taken away, it certainly makes it easier to leave.

So, what’s the solution?  Well, that’s the tricky bit right there, because there isn’t one solution that works for every organization or employee. What we do know is that management needs to learn how to keep their remote employees engaged, and quickly.

While staff turnover is simply part of running a business, if you want to better your odds of keeping your employees feeling like they’re part of a team, let’s get a little creative.

This article, from event site TeamBuilding, has some unique ideas to maintaining high spirits among staff. Whether it’s a couple tips and tricks on how to best celebrate employee birthdays remotely or a special ‘channel’ dedicated to celebrating small wins, there’s a multitude of ideas that would benefit any company’s culture.

On a more serious note, while considering ways of keeping your employees engaged – and employed with you – please don’t forget the very real impact Covid-19 has had on mental health for a great number of people. As CAMH acknowledges in this article, social isolation weighs heavily on everyone, some undoubtedly more than others. Keep an eye on your employees, some may be at risk of experiencing difficulties with their mental health and others may have previous difficulties amplified due to, well, everything that’s happening.

It’s the season of (employee) discontent.  We’re all experiencing this and it’s important that we encourage each other.

This too shall pass, so lets try and be there for one another, it’ll make our post-covid world that much better!
