The WSJ takes a look at yet more ways in which hiring is being transformed by technology. As recruiters, we do not view rapidly developing technology as a threat, but as another tool for us and our clients to further increase the diversity of applicant pools, improve communications, and free up resources.
From the WSJ:
"In an unusual reversal of the gender pay gap, female chief executives at some of the largest U.S. companies repeatedly outearn their male counterparts. Last year, 21 female CEOs received a median compensation package of $13.8 million, compared with the $11.6 million median for 382 male chiefs, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of S&P 500 leaders who held the job a full year."
The catch? Women represent only 5% of CEOs at S&P 500 companies.
Via the Wall Street Journal, a look at the man or woman behind the boss. We place a lot of #2's at Bloomfield & Company. They are hired and operate under many titles, including Chief Operating Officer, Chief Administrative Officer, Special Assistant, Deputy, and sometimes even Executive Assistant!
The new WBJ/Colliers Greater Washington Business Confidence Survey points to opportunities for training and professional development as the way to retain your best employees (salary and healthcare aside, of course).
Also ranking high on the list, flexible scheduling/telecommuting and a positive working environment.
