Previously Published on News Break Whether running a tight ship or planning for a post-pandemic wedding of the century, couples are, for the most part, always coming up with new ways to manage their money. Despite an imminent fear of catching the coronavirus, a record number of professionals have become hyper-focused on advancing their careers — some on the brink of unemployment while others are possibly even losing their businesses due to shutdown and quarantine. “How did the pandemic change the way couples ‘do money’ together?” This was something Policygenius really wanted to know. The nation’s leading online insurance marketplace conducted a survey by polling more than 1,500 adults across the United States. They examined the ongoing relationship between couples and how they managed their money both before and after the pandemic. Overall, these figures have not changed and remain consistent with previous versions of the Policygenius Couples & Money survey, published in both 2018 and 2019. Surprisingly, only one in three people surveyed (34%) claimed that the pandemic had changed the way that they’ve been managing their wallets. Only 16% of those individuals admitted that they have had to “tighten their belts,” some earning a lower income than they […]

Previously Published on News Break In case you haven’t noticed, our economy has been re-opening since the introduction of vaccines. People are traveling again. Others are looking for work. And, hiring managers are back on the scene, recruiting for their latest openings — yet, so much of our regular hiring processes have changed. Last month, one company reported that more than 29% of working professionals would quit their job if not allowed to continue working remotely and that 62% of long-term employees preferred employers that offered work from home opportunities in the future. Most have reported that working from home made them more productive, allowed them to focus on quality and that they were less stressed due to a more meaningful work-life balance, despite a deadly pandemic knocking at their front doors. Robert Half, the World’s first and leading staffing agency, was also busy conducting their own studies, surveying more than 1000 workers, aged 18 and over, on the topic of relocation. More than 1,000 human resources managers were also polled, selected from companies in 28 major cities across the US. The study showed that 51% of employees surveyed would strongly consider relocation should their company offer more long-term opportunities […]

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED ON RESUME.ACADEMY’S OFFICIAL BLOG In a recent press release by the world’s favorite remote jobsearch site, FlexJobs identified “14 of the Most Common Remote Jobs” and the average annual pay per position. This list was based on data gathered from within an ever-growing database of work-at-home positions and key factors were highlighted for each of those positions. Additional data was gathered at PayScale.com, and annual salary data was determined in relation to those factors. The bottom line is this. As millennials continue to take the workforce by storm, a preference for out-of-office experiences has become the norm. As opposed to sitting behind a wooden desk in a stuffy office environment, many companies are finding value in providing the younger, more vibrant demographic with a more satisfying work-life balance. Contrary to reports that these professionals are being underpaid, as in contrast to previous generation s , these numbers show that some companies still value their workforce and aren’t against compensating them accordingly. According to the FlexJobs’ 7th annual survey on remote candidacy, 97% of all applicants said that “a job with flexibility would have either a huge improvement or a more positive impact on their overall quality of life.” […]

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED TO TALENT ZOO’S DIGITAL PIVOT A recent Scanbuy Shopper Survey breaks down how mobile influences consumer shopping behaviors. In fact, numbers say that 89% of consumers actually use their mobile while shopping. A control group of 19K proved that incentives still rock the world of sales. Consumers showed Scanbury that, as a majority, they prefer mobile couponing. They especially enjoy receiving coupons while on premises at their favorite stores. Receiving coupons upon entry entices the compulsive behavior of each customer and encourages more spending while in the store. Many times, customers set a bar for how much they can or will spend upon visit. And, because deals aren’t always easy to come by, they end up spending more and going home satisfied through quantity and value. Only 45% of consumers show that they prefer in-store only couponing, as many of consumers shop online. Because so many of our populations are compulsive shoppers, it isn’t too much of a shock that three out of four consumers who were surveyed actually shopped on their mobile device at least once a month. Fifty-four percent of all users will research a product via smartphone prior to purchase. Conveniently, this includes in-store purchase […]

Study Reveals How to Digitally Influence Consumer Behavior and Sales

Previously Published to Talent Zoo’s Digital Pivot According to a recent study at the University of Miami School of Business Administration, online shoppers are proving to be 80% more likely to choose more expensive products and services when accompanied by a video demonstration. If your brand hasn’t implemented video to your social media mix, you may potentially be missing out on a large market share. Interestingly enough, 79% more shoppers are most likely to choose products centered on entertainment and pleasure as opposed to functionality. They are even willing to pay a higher price for this. Could this be the correlation between video engagement and a product that entertains? “It is clear from our study that online retailers, particularly those selling a product that beats the competition less on function and more on attributes about pleasure and enjoyment, can substantially increase their sales and profits by systematically incorporating more dynamic presentation formats like video to convey their product and service offerings,” states Claudia Townsend, Assistant Professor of Marketing at the University of Miami School of Business Administration. She, along with Professor Ram Krishan, collaborated with additional professors from Babson College to conduct these studies in time for holiday sales and marketing initiatives. […]

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED TO TMC NET’S UNIFIED COMMUNICATIONS A recent report by 451 Research details the evolution of traditional Intranet amongst corporate and enterprise organizations, as it enters the next-generation. This, as the study notes, will happen through a social intranet exchange, which will allow for streamlined collaboration, open communication and unification across cross-functional teams in the workplace environment. Incentive, a provider social intranet for mid-market organizations and enterprise teams, has been included in this report titled, “Social Intranets and the Supply Chain,” which also discusses multiple vendor types available to the industrial and corporate markets. Incentive has prided itself on becoming the go-to for corporations interested in achieving improved profitability, increased efficiencies and accelerated business results – all of which appeal to the millennial business. Often times, companies do not cash in on opportunities, as they surface, due to an inability to integrate teams and keep a consistent flow of communication going so that new would initiatives are commenced. Therefore, many opportunities go untouched, while others are slowly adopted. While many traditional intranets have served influential brands for over 15 years, it’s the newer technologies that are disrupting traditional flow of communication and collaboration in today’s corporate arena. Social Intranets […]
