Putting ‘Job-Hopping’ in Proper Perspective

Terry Donovan | June 14, 2018

By Terry Donovan Executive search clients consistently voice concerns about candidates who appear to be "job-hopping"– i.e., frequently move to new opportunities after relatively short stints. These concerns are reasonable and can be justified in many circumstances, although other times, movement early in an individual's career can be both beneficial and rational. For instance, one AETHOS placement talked about how he sought different companies and experiences in the beginning years of his career to make himself more well-rounded and adaptable in the future.

Chris Whitlow | November 17, 2017

by Chris Whitlow High turnover rates are a problem that hotel owners face every day and finding solutions to keep hospitality employees is just as challenging. In 2016, the turnover rate for employees in the hospitality sector was more than 70 percent, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Job Openings and Labor Turnover (JOLTS) program. To counter this and improve employee retention rates, hotel owners should consider utilizing gamification to engage and inspire employees. If you're unfamiliar with gamification, it's the application of game elements into other settings. Many companies are already using gamification for...
