Robert Half Named To FORTUNE's "Most Admired Companies" List For 25th Consecutive Year

Global talent solutions and business consulting firm Robert Half (NYSE: RHI) has been named to the FORTUNE "World's Most Admired Companies®" list and is the only staffing firm included for 2022. Robert Half is one of very few companies selected as a "Most Admired Company" for 25 consecutive years — and is the only in its industry to achieve this distinction.

What kind of relationship do you expect to have with your boss?

Sure, the workplace is a nicer place to be when we all get along, but it is worth making an extra effort to build a positive rapport with your immediate boss and other senior employees.

The time will almost certainly come when you need their support, assistance or approval.

That’s when having a great working relationship with the boss pays dividends.

Be aware though, there is a world of difference between being the office sycophant and sharing a good relationship with your boss.

With this in mind, here are six simple steps to improve working with your boss.

Employee retention strategies

As a hiring manager, if employee engagement and retention aren’t on your priority list yet - they should be. The jobs market has changed, and many employers are finding that they no longer hold all the cards when it comes to retaining staff in today’s fast paced environment. Employees no longer prioritise holding a tenure with their current company over seeking a job elsewhere that better suits their lifestyle and career aspirations.

Why recruiting in December can give you a competitive edge?

It’s December, work is winding down and the work Christmas parties are in full swing. Conventional wisdom is that it’s also a quiet month for recruitment. But the reality is actually very different. The job market in fact heats up significantly.
