Breaking news - the new overtime regulations that were to go into effect on December 1, 2016 have been put on hold. The ruling increases the minimum salary threshold for employees exempt under the federal Executive, Administrative and Professional exemptions from its current threshold of $455 per week to $913 per week (annualized to $47,476 per year), with subsequent adjustments to be made every three years.

However, a preliminary injunction is just a temporary hold. While the Final Rule will not take effect on December 1 as planned, it may or may not become effective at a later date. The Court now has a chance to review the merits of the case and issue a final decision without the Final Rule taking effect in the meantime.

The culture of your company plays a huge role in employee retention. Fortunately, the right recruiting consultant can help you to create the conditions to hire the right people and to retain them more effectively for the long run.

Six steps to avoid the pitfalls of #firstimpressionbias:

Most of us overestimate our ability to accurately judge what a person is like based on our first impression. This overconfidence gets reinforced because we are often not in a situation to actually get to know someone and thus reassess our prejudices - good or bad. As humans we are basically hard wired to form a judgement quickly - our brains just do it.

But how does all this impact our ability to hire great people? A LOT!
