Original air date: December 9, 2006 | Is there (really) a war for talent? If so, what should your company be doing now (and later) to prepare for shortages in your workforce?

Original air date – July 20, 2007 | Jim Stroud and Karen Mattonen engage in shameless self-promotion, debate “Green Cards,” banter about big money jobs without a college degree and chat (ever so slightly) about Karen’s disappearance from certain online forums. Its just another typical episode of “The Recruiters Lounge.”
One of my articles, “The Next American Civil War is Upon Us” has been growing in popularity on my blog. So much so, I decided to do this shortened podcast version.

ORIGINAL AIR DATE: AUGUST 24, 2009 | In episode #130, Jim Stroud, Karen Mattonen and (special guest) Geoff Web discuss socialism, the recession and recruiting in Canada. Plus, what is “The Boolean Dance?” And what does it have to do with Recruitfest? Tune in to find out. All this and more, in another action-packed episode of The Recruiters Lounge podcast.
Facebook announced in May that up to half of its workforce is likely to be working from home within the next five to 10 years. There is one caveat: staff salaries could be adjusted to align with the cost of living in their chosen location, meaning potential pay cuts for those considering moving away from its expensive Palo Alto base and other global hubs. Is this fair?
I think about the pros and cons of paying remote (work from home) workers and come up with a compromise that is fair for workers and companies alike. Listen in and let me know if my idea has merit or if I am way off the mark.
