“How do I justify your fee?”

When you walk into a Maserati dealership or a store that carries the #Gucci line or #Rolex, you do not haggle over the price or present a coupon. You are there because these brands proved to be the best, are backed up by an extensive warranty and an excellent ‘lifespan’.

You are paying for value and proven quality. You pay the price because you are making an #investment. Why it is then when there is a vacancy to fill, the hiring manager or the Human Resources Manager haggles with the #employment agency over the fee?

I frequently get asked, “How do I justify your fee”? “The other agencies I work with charge at least 5% less then you”?

There must be a reason they called us in the first place. Is it because the other agencies with a lower fee did not produce the quality of candidates they were seeking?

Everyone knows that a hiring process is costly and lengthy. It requires expertise in screening, interviewing, asking the right questions when conducting business references, personality assessment and culture fit, a pool of qualified candidates, and so on.

In conclusion: Hiring the right person is also an investment, it gives you a peace of mind when you know that your investment is backed up with a generous replacement guarantee and that your new hire will stay for the long-haul.

Do you agree that making the wrong hiring decision will end up costing more in the long run than the 5% saved #today?

How Do I Mourn the Loss of My Father?

I have been blessed in many ways; one of these blessings was the privilege of having my parents around for many years. My father was 98 years old when it was no longer possible to care for him at home, and we needed to place him in a “Long Term Care” facility.

Although physically limited, his brain was fully functional and sharp. His health continued to deteriorate and a week ago, he was put in palliative care.

I knew that although he was unable to speak, his eyes told me that he feels, appreciates and knows that I am there with him, and now that my father will no longer be around me, to comfort me, to assist me, to speak with me, to share his wisdom and knowledge, my life without him will be different. I know that I will miss him dearly.

In eighteen days he would have been 100 years old. We were all looking forward to a birthday celebration, yet it was not to be. Born in Poland, my father who the Nazis murdered his mother and two sisters, managed to survive the Holocaust; he became a member of the underground movement in Europe for two years, assisting holocaust survivors like him to get to Palestine. Then as he himself came to Israel, he became a soldier in the 1948 “War of Independence”.

When he retired at the age of 65, he decided to once again uplift his roots and together with my mother join their only daughter in Canada.

Today my father embarked on his final journey, where I am hopeful he will unite with the family he lost, his friends and colleagues that have preceded him in that journey.

Now I know that I need to be strong for my 92-year-old mother, who for my sake is doing her best to be strong and put on a brave face. Tomorrow May 1st would have been my parents’ seventy-second wedding anniversary.

We say that “life goes on, and we must be strong” yet I wonder how to actually mourn his passing and move on? Maybe it is also an opportunity to celebrate his life, his amazing journey, against all odds. I think that more than anything else, my father as his other fellow survivors of the holocaust stand tall as proof that the human spirit will overcome all evil.

Today is also Israel’s “Remembrance Day”, the whole country mourns its fallen soldiers, and then in the evening as the sun goes down, and the whole of Israel begins to celebrate its Independence Day. Maybe there is more than just coincidence, that we mourn and yet we celebrate. So shall I, mourn his departure – and celebrate his life.

“No matter how prepared you think you are for the death of a loved one, it still comes as a shock, and it still hurts very deeply” ~ Billy Graham

Is the World Economy on a rise?

  • Walt Disney Co.’s ESPN television unit is laying off about 10% of its 1,000 on-air staff ensuring the company is quicker to respond to the changing viewing pattern of sports fans
  • The Hampton Roads ship-repair industry is preparing to lay off more than 1,000 employees due to the US Federal government’s stopgap spending measure as well as the failure to approve a new national budget with adequate funding for maintenance of Navy Ships
  • Nestle announced plans to cut almost 300 jobs in Britain which are non-related to Brexit
  • Alitalia faces bankruptcy after employees rejected proposed salary cuts and layoff of 2,037 jobs that were aimed at securing investments and keeping the carrier afloat
  • Mobile telecom equipment maker Ericsson based in Stockholm, Switzerland faces long and painful overhaul after shrinking markets, tough competition and restructuring costs pushed it to a quarterly operating loss.

  • Coca-Cola’s sales declined in the first quarter as it restricted its business. The world’s biggest beverage maker said it will cut 1,200 jobs starting later this year with the hope that the cuts would help it find another $800 million in annualized saving. The job cuts will come from its corporate staff around the world. That would represent about 22% reduction of its corporate staff of about 5,500 or 1% reduction in its total workforce of 100,300 employees
  • Boeing warned employees that it is planning another round of involuntary layoff that would affect hundreds of engineering at its commercial airplanes unit

It is unfortunately the low-wage brackets earners in the general merchandise stores that are being laid off
  • Commerzbank AG, Germany’s second-largest bank, has informed its works council that 7,800 jobs will be cut in Germany as part of a restructuring announced last year. These cuts would affect almost every part of the bank

  • General Motors Co will lay off 1,100 workers in May at its Lansing Delta Township assembly plant in Michigan as it shifts production of a vehicle to Tennessee, and will cut 625 jobs at its auto assembly plant in Ingersoll, Ontario by the end of July and move the production work to Mexico
  • Credit Suisse will cut up to 6,500 more jobs in 2017, job cuts come after Switzerland’s second-biggest bank reported a 2.44 billion Swiss franc ($2.43 billion) net loss for 2016. The bank cut a net 7,250 jobs in 2016 and said there would between 5,500 and 6,500 more will this year. It employed around 47,000 people at the end of 2016
  • Zenefits is laying off nearly half its staff as the software start-up grapples with the fallout of insurance violations that resulted in hefty penalties from state regulators. The company, which offers free human-resources software to manage benefits and payroll while making its money as an insurance broker, said on Thursday that 430 employees would lose their jobs. That leaves 4-year-old Zenefits with about 500 employees, roughly a third of what it had a year ago
  • Bell Media, a unit of Canadian telecom company BCE Inc, said on Tuesday it is reducing its radio and television industry workforce in more than two dozen locations across the country by an unspecified number. “The restructuring is the result of the challenges Bell Media and other Canadian media companies are facing due to increasing international competition, the evolution of broadcast technologies, and advertising and regulatory pressure”

  • Cognizant Technology Solutions India Pvt Ltd,a leading global IT and business process outsourcing services provider will most likely lay off 6,000-10,000 “redundant and non-performing” employees
  • Some of the world’s best tech companies also announced layoffs: Cisco – a reduction of 7% of its global workforce in 2017, IBM plans to cut 5,000 jobs, Microsoft decided to cut 2,800 jobs in 2017 as it plans to wind up its smartphone business
  • All major Canadian Banks such as CIBC, TD, Scotia, Royal Bank, started restricting in 2015 due to a slowing revenue environment and are hoping that smaller branch network will deliver savings

Bottom Line: As I review this list, I come to the gloom conclusion that no continent or industry are spared. The consequences of all these job cuts remain to be seen.

I Did It My Way…..

A tourist passes by and sees a man sitting & fishing. The tourist asks the fisher person: “dear sir why are you using only one fishing rod?”

“What do you mean”? asks the fisher person

“Well, you might as well put two or three additional rods and no doubt you will catch a lot more fish” replies the tourist

“And what would I do with all of these extra fish?” asks the fisher person

“sell them then buy a fishing boat, then you’ll be able to catch and sell even more fish, with this money you will be able to buy another boat and another boat, continue catching more fish and keep on buying another boat and another boat, you will have several crews working for you, think about it, the possibilities are endless” the tourist replies

The fisher person listens to the tourist very carefully, processes the information for a while and asks the tourist: “so now that I have a fleet with of other fishermen working for me what would I be doing?”

“You will be relaxing, enjoying life and doing whatever your heart desires” replies the tourist

The fisherperson looks at him, shakes his head and says: “So, why is it different than what I am doing right now?”

Bottom Line: We are all put on this earth on a temporary basis. Some of us will be here for many years while others will be here for a fewer number of years. We do not have a crystal ball to provide us with the answer…… remember that it is your life and your time so make sure you enjoy every moment of it!
