Growing and managing a workforce is almost never easy. And when it comes to staffing up, business owners have to juggle issues such as tracking resumes, analyzing candidates and other human resources obligations. For smaller firms, the difficulties associated with managing these duties can often be amplified.

The good news is there are several useful toolsthat can help. Though they will not replace a physical HR manager, these three services should be able to help even the smallest company hire and manage employees more efficiently:

Small Business Job Growth Continues

Small businesses continued to add jobs in October, but the question remains whether this will be a sustainable trend given growing uncertainty about the economy and looming fiscal issues.

Employment in private small business (companies with one to 49 employees) payrolls rose by 50,000 in October on a seasonally adjusted basis, according to the ADP Small Business Report released Thursday. This is the largest payroll increase since July and accounts for 32 percent of employment gains across all company size groups.

Within small businesses, 37 percent of the employment growth contribution was associated with companies having between one to 19 employees while 63 percent of October’s small business growth was driven by companies with 20 to 49 employees.
Many small businesses remain confident in the economy’s future growth despite and a recent study by Kauffman/LegalZoom Startup Confidence Index suggested that the credit crunch for small businesses may be easing.

How to Be an Entrepreneur at Your Day Job
by Cristi Young | image credit: ShutterstockHow to Be an Entrepreneur at Your Day Job

As an entrepreneur, two things are probably true at some point in your career trajectory.

First, thinking like an entrepreneur is nearly impossible to turn off. If you’re driven to be a self-starter and creator, odds are that you’re constantly thinking and planning. Secondly, there will come a time — barring any unforeseen angel investors or trust funds — that you’ll need to take a job before fully branching out on your own.

Although startup costs vary, launching your own vision does come as some price, which means many budding entrepreneurs find themselves working a day job — planning for their dreams while feeling chained to a desk.

Supply chain management critical to the bottom line and business survival

siliconrepublic.com

From economic disasters to natural disasters across the world, the importance of supply chain management (SCM) has never been more critical to the bottom line of a business, a survey by PwC claims.

The survey suggests supply chain leaders deliver better than average financial results, enjoying twice the profitability advantage over laggards and a 17-point on-time delivery percentage advantage.

Interest in next-generation technology is growing and more than 50pc of survey respondents are planning to implement new process automation or transparency.

More than two-thirds think sustainability will play a more prominent role in supply chains in the future. Leer más “Supply chain management critical to the bottom line and business survival”

How Are Healthcare Professionals Using Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC]


By Shea Bennett | mediabistro.com

Did you know that a recent study of 1,229 U.S. hospitals revealed that 814 had Twitter accounts?

That sounds pretty impressive, but it placed Twitter just third in the survey amongst the major social networks. Surprisingly, Foursquare (946 accounts) bagged the second spot, with Facebook (1068 Pages) comfortably leading the way.

The evolution of social media amongst healthcare professionals has been driven by a greater need for transparency, and a 2012 consumer poll revealed that 54 percent of patients are comfortable with their medical providers seeking advice from online communities to help better treat their conditions. Less than one in ten stated that they were “very uncomfortable” with the idea.

This, and other data, can be found in this infographic which takes a closer look at how healthcare pros are using social media.

Why Social Media Engagement Is A Real Metric [INFOGRAPHIC]


 

By Shea Bennett | http://www.mediabistro.com

Did you know that the average engagement rates for posts made on social media sites range from just 0.01 to 1 percent?

Independent studies I’ve undertaken have confirmed this. In my opinion, if your engagement rates are better than half a percent you’re WAY above average, and around five times as engaged as even the biggest players in the social space.

So is it all a waste of time? Leer más “Why Social Media Engagement Is A Real Metric [INFOGRAPHIC]”

The Online Population Explosion [INFOGRAPHIC]


By Lauren Dugan | AllTwitter | http://bit.ly/JqK6oF

The digital landscape has changed a lot over the years, and the number of internet users logging on to email, shopping for shoes and sending tweets has positively exploded.
But how many people are actually online? And how many of those people are tweeting?

This infographic from web marketing company Customer Magnetism tracks the evolution of the web from what it was ten years ago to the massive global force that it’s become today. And the results are fascinating.

For instance, social networking has, obviously, seen the largest increase in the past ten years of any online activity. From just 11 percent of internet users logging on to a social network (and yes, they did exist) in 2002, now 65 percent of us are digitally social creatures.

And American companies are particularly tuned in to this trend. While only 15 percent of them bothered with social media marketing in 2009, now a whopping 88 percent are trying to reach their customers on networks like Facebook and Twitter.

And Twitter itself enjoyed the massive overall growth of social media in the past few years, going from about 5,000 tweets per day in 2007 to 2.5 million in 2009 – then jumping nearly ten times to 200 million in 2011.
