Hiring in Dallas: Strong Employment Gains Despite Losses in Manufacturing

Dallas ranked first in job growth among major metro areas in the United States between March 2015 and March 2016.1 The Dallas metro area ranked fifth on Forbes’ 2016 “The Best Cities for Jobs” list, which analyzes short- and long-term employment trends from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.2

Job growth in the Dallas/Fort Worth region was particularly strong in the professional and business services sector, and in the construction and mining sector in the third quarter of 2016, with the combined industries adding 23,000 jobs. Third-quarter employment growth in Dallas outpaced both state and national job growth rates. The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas projects continued economic expansion for the region.3

 
 
 

Hiring in New York City: Strong Job Growth Despite Financial Services Declines

Hiring in New York City: Strong Job Growth Despite Financial Services Declines

New York City was home to 207 of Inc. 5000’s fastest-growing private companies in 2015, the highest concentration of fast-growing companies in the country.1 The tech industry continues to flourish in Manhattan’s Silicon Alley and in other NYC boroughs, having grown 29 percent since 2010. The 2017 opening of Cornell University’s high-tech campus on Roosevelt Island in New York City is expected to further increase the city’s cachet as a tech hub.2

Private sector employment grew by 2.3 percent between September 2015 and September 2016 across New York City, which includes Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens and Richmond Counties. The city outperformed New York state’s job growth of 1.5 percent and national employment growth, which was 1.9 percent during the same period.

 
 
 

How to Improve Employee Engagement: Strategies That Work

How to Improve Employee Engagement: Strategies That Work

Engaged employees show up to work with energy, ready to tackle the demands of the day, excited to contribute ideas and solve problems. They are not employees doing the bare minimum until quitting time. They are interested in the work they are doing, find meaning in the mission of their company and are eager to learn and expand their capabilities.

Yet, according to a study by Gallup, fully engaged employees are in short supply. In 2015, Gallup found that only 32 percent of U.S. workers were fully engaged in their jobs, while 50.8 percent were not engaged and 17.2 percent were “actively disengaged.”1 This level of engagement has remained flat since 2000.

 
 
 

It’s time to start thinking and acting ‘like a boss’

It’s time to start thinking and acting ‘like a boss’

Do you consider yourself a leader?

If your answer to that was “No,” it might be time to re-think how you approach your job and your career.

Acting like a leader should not just be left to managers and senior leaders. Personally, I’ve never been a believer in hierarchy for hierarchy’s sake. Instead I am a strong advocate for the notion that anyone can be a leader, in any role or position.
