    Government ‘tax-gap’ crackdowns and individual claims are on the rise. Learn how to identify and avoid the risk with your contractors.

    Increasingly, cash-strapped governments are looking at what they call the “tax gap” which includes unpaid payroll taxes, unemployment taxes, etc. on mis-categorization of employees as independent contractors. There is also the real concern that these independent contractors are being deprived of worker protections such as minimum wage, overtime, health insurance benefits, workers compensation, and unemployment benefits.

    We’re glad to announce the launch of accoloTV – a web video channel that pulls together the most entertaining videos about jobs and employment we can get our job-filling little mitts on.

    Take some time this afternoon to blow off that appointment and enjoy a few laughs. It’s almost the weekend, right? Also, if you find some good vids on YouTube you want us to include, just pop us an email at social@accolo.com and we’ll add them to the channel.

    One extra-cool bit of technology we developed for accoloTV is an automatic boss monitor that can see over your shoulder and automatically switch to some boring spreadsheet when the higher-ups are about to pounce! (Not really, but wouldn’t that be cool?)

    Within the question framework of the Accolo online application for candidates is the ability for Accolo Hiring Consultants and Hiring Managers to craft behavioral based interview questions.

    For the sake of expediency and keystroke-savings, the behavioral based question is known affectionately to us “in the Biz” as a BBQ. Unlike a conventional BBQ, the Accolo BBQ has nothing to do with a grill, with pork or with pork by-products. Be that as it may, the BBQ is the real meat, the real beef, as it were, in a candidate’s online job application. Read More…

    Courteous, Respectful and Confidential: best practices in extending an offer of employment

    “If you are planning on doing business with someone again, don’t be too tough in the negotiations. If you’re going to skin a cat, don’t keep it as a house cat.” – Marvin S. Levin

    The key to a successful job offer extension is to view it as a process that starts from the minute you engage a potential candidate. By using a consistent and systematic approach, you can minimize the risk of investing countless hours and resources in an ill-fated recruiting effort. Read More…

    measure hiring manager satisfaction as one of your key metrics

    Before we begin an engagement, we distribute Hiring Manager surveys to establish a baseline from which to measure future recruitment performance. These Hiring Manager Surveys are a subjective measurement of your recruiting, but the Hiring Managers’ perceptions of the recruiting function are ultimately the most important metric. If you are not focused on making the Hiring Managers and candidates happy, you are not managing the function with the real customers in mind. Read More…

    Here at Accolo, we don’t like to take ourselves too seriously, but when it comes to Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) compliance, we straighten up and stop joking around.

    Disregarding EEOC/OFCCP laws and regulations can be a huge detriment to your company by tainting your corporate image and your bottom line. With an increase in online applicants and the use and misuse of social network recruiting EEO compliance and reporting has become even more convoluted and important. Read More…
