Our job is to make yours easier. So we created a brand new resources page where you can find everything you need to know about recruiting the biggest rock stars, keeping your team productive (and also smiling), and see what’s trending according to the industry’s top leaders. Plus, we’ll be updating it weekly. Here’s a quick peek at some of the content you’ll find.
Nitty-gritty research reports
We keep you current. From a global pandemic to worldwide protests against racial injustice, 2020 is unlike any year in modern history. Naturally, it impacts the workplace—from sky-high unemployment to people rethinking their careers to businesses rethinking how they operate. We talked to hundreds of marketing and creative leaders about the influx of digital customers and the roles critical to keeping them happy for our Cheat Code for Growth Report.
We also wanted to talk money. Because, well, money talks. So we created our Salary Guide to help you understand current salary trends for today’s essential roles, plus help you target future spend. Get answers to questions like, “Am I paying my team competitively enough? What should I budget for this role? Does using remote talent change pay?” (You also have access to our Check Salary tool to instantly compare compensation by expertise, job title, or location with many cities reporting in real time.)
We go straight to the source to find out what matters most. For example, as a hiring manager, you need to know what’s on the minds of the people you’re hiring. So we talked to them for you. Nearly 4,000, in fact. And we learned what’s most important to them, from getting real-time performance feedback to the number one roadblock to workplace happiness. And, voilà, we have the Talent Ignition Report.
