How do you attract and retain the right talent for your organization?
In today’s highly competitive world, businesses face a major concern – hiring, motivating, and retaining experts.
Companies like GE, CISCO, and Procter & Gamble are using the same approach in their organizations. This so-called approach is called, “Reverse Monitoring”. These companies pair senior staff with new and younger employees. Both senior staff and junior employees combine proven concepts, with fresh and newer ideas upstream along the corporate ladder.  However, there is destined to be conflicts in strategy and viewpoints between the seasoned staff and the new hires.
The recent statistics on a KPMG study on evaluating growth and revenue amidst constant change revealed that proper mobility can have a positive impact on creating and maintaining a productive workforce. Thus, whatever conflicts may arise should only help the businesses in the long run.

Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way

Do you believe that there will always be a way, when there seems to be no way?

This proverb, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” is an old English proverb which means having the determination to find a way of doing things. While the records do not state clearly who the author of this proverb is, it is mostly believed to be created by Samuel Smiles, a Scottish government reformer and a Guru.  He is known for his self-help and inspirational writings. We sometimes find ourselves in situations where we are ready to give up because we cannot find an answer or solution to a problem. There are times when we feel that we have already done everything, yet the problem still remains. During these times, the proverb reminds us that “everything has a way, only if we have the will to find it.”
