Companies that strive for excellence and success will also need to invest in their future, and, according to a recent survey, one of the most worthwhile investments businesses can make is a top-notch permanent staff. As firm Robert Walters puts it, going for permanent staff is a “bellweather of market confidence” and delivers a good message for junior staff. High Demand for Junior Level Employees According to a recent Hiring Intentions survey, 77 per cent of employers are planning on hiring secretarial and support staff before the year end. The survey also showed that 54 per cent of these companies are seeking junior level employees, while 43 per cent are looking for mid-level employees.

While it’s true that having a high IQ can open doors to more opportunities and better jobs, this is not enough to achieve success. What people, especially those looking for a job, should work on is improving their emotional intelligence. In fact, most experts see that the majority of people who are at the top of their game tend to have higher emotional intelligence than other people. Emotional Intelligence and IQ Since the concept of emotional intelligence was first identified in 1995, it became an explanation behind a peculiar finding, wherein people having average IQs outperform those with superior IQs 70 per cent of the time. Emotional intelligence is something intangible, and it affects how a person manages his or her behaviour. This is also the factor that helps them navigate through social complexities and make personal decisions.

There’s no stopping the prevalence of selfies on social media, and the word itself has even warranted a space in the Oxford English Dictionary. Selfies are being taken on special occasions, from holidays, festivals and birthdays, to chance encounters with favourite celebrities. Even non-special and ordinary days are, for some people, the perfect opportunity to take the perfect selfie. Selfies posted on Instagram, and even on the new platform called Snapchat, are some people’s way of getting through an uneventful Monday and celebrating the arrival of Friday. While selfies may seem like harmless fun, these can lead you into trouble in your workplace, especially if you post inappropriate ones.

Several new sources have recently reported on the skills shortage problem Britain is currently experiencing. According to the study, the skills mismatch in Britain has only become worse each year since 2012. In fact, on the Hays Global Index, Britain scored 9.7 out of 10 on talent mismatch, which they claim to be among the worst in Europe. As employees find it hard to get jobs and employers have a hard time looking for the talent they need, how can the nation overcome this issue in the coming years? Top recruitment agencies in London like RMS Recruitment have the answer. Recruitment companies in London regularly compile a list of skills shortage based on their recent experience. According to the records, the skill requirements that are left unfulfilled the most include: languages, immediate availability, secretarial training, Executive Assistant (EA) skills rather than PA skills, industry experience, and clients asking for a degree qualification.

Do you think you have what it takes to get to the top? Forget about working your way up the ladder for the moment. Just try drawing an “E” on your forehead to find out whether you’re an office hawk or a bunny. Take a selfie and send it to us, and we will tell you what it reveals about you. You may also win a £20 John Lewis voucher if you have one of the best E-selfies! Background of E-Test The “E” test is just one of the many used by social scientists in measuring a person’s ability to understand other people’s perspective. A group of American social scientists, led by Adam Galinsky at the Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, used the “E” test, along with other techniques to study the link between empathy and power. It was found that people who are in the position of power share a common way of writing the “E” distinguishable from that of followers.
