For any business in the Energy or Building sectors, maintaining a loyal workforce is key. Building up a team of people who stay with you for the long term will be a great help in making your organisation successful. This is why so many businesses now focus on staff retention. Taking steps to manage your staff retention rates and finding ways to boost them is certainly worthwhile.
But what does looking after staff retention rates do for your company specifically?
Social media is almost inescapable in today’s world, and is often regarded as your “digital face”. For job seekers, this can offer great opportunities for networking and even job offers, particularly through LinkedIn and Twitter, as well as for researching companies. However, there are a few social media mistakes to watch out for in order to keep your job prospects looking sunny. We’ve rounded up some of the most common below.
In any new job, the first few weeks are invariably crucial. It can be an exciting, if nerve-racking, time, as incomer and employer get used to each other. After all, those early days will be when both sides gain an impression of one another that will affect the success of the working relationship – and even how long it will last.
It can be surprisingly hard for people to recognise the signs that they’re so unhappy at work they need to leave. However, sometimes this really is the only viable option – either because staying will damage your health in some way, or won’t allow your career to progress in the way it needs to.
Body language matters, and nowhere does it matter more than in a job interview, where a shocking 33% of surveyed hiring managers admit they’ve made up their mind if they’re going to hire you within 90 seconds.
That’s hardly enough time to shake hands and take a seat, let alone discuss your suitability for the role.

Global companies who turn huge profits are naturally in a strong position to attract a high standard of candidate. The ability to offer an attractive salary in an appealing role is what most job hunters are on the lookout for.
Although what you write in your CV will help to secure that all-important interview, how you present it is just as crucial.
