Take Your Sales Career beyond Just Selling

With sales as competitive and a company's success as critical as ever before, we at Workwolf have been diving into ways you can improve your sales tactics. And one of the most common themes that comes up time and again is the need for going beyond just selling in the sales industry. Keith Snowden, for one, has been working in the med-tech industry for over 20 years and recognizes "This is not selling widgets" when it comes to live-saving technology. "What you're dealing with," he says, "is a very customer-concentric and patient-concentric business, which requires a high degree of technology…

The Top 4 Tricks for Sales Managers

When Lara, our internet marketing consultant, meets with Dan Hollis over Microsoft Teams, one thing becomes immediately clear—just as his website suggests—"Some people are just born to sell." With years of experience in radio and media, Hollis has an enchanting ability to instantly connect with his audiences and capture their attention. But of course, like the art of magic itself, sales is not inherently all innate, even in those meant for the industry. With over 30 years of experience in sales, Hollis has seen it all and knows what it takes to truly master the art of sales, including the ability…

4 of the Best Ways to Personalize Your Hiring Process

In September alone, 64,000 new positions—as Jessy Bains reports for LinkedIn News—were added to the Canadian job market. And while this is three times more than the expected 20,000 economists anticipated, it is still below pre-pandemic job rates. And it is crucial to note that these jobs were added predominantly within transportation, warehouse, and education industries. Meanwhile, numbers of positions in real estate, finance and insurance, construction, information, and recreation continue to fall. So, especially if you're looking to hire in the latter industries, how can you increase the likelihood of catching the eyes of top talent? We recommend personalizing…

Does Your EVP Support Your Business Long-Term?

It's been said time and again that the pandemic has taught many employees the importance of being adaptable and agile in the workforce in order to anticipate changes as abrupt and sudden as the ones we all faced in 2020. But what many overlook or forget from this lesson is that employers themselves too must remain agile in anticipation of rapid and drastic change. After all, the job market is changing drastically regularly, and with demands for in-office work on the rise once more, it is sure to fluctuate even more this quarter. So, how do you remain agile as…

Build Lasting Relationships with Your Sales Clients

It's no secret that many of the most successful salespeople in the world are those who build meaningful relationships with their clients/customers. Many gain huge followings and receive referrals to friends and family members countless times over because of the great rapport they have built with their audiences. And certainly, doing so takes a certain kind of person: someone who is confident, captivating, and caring about their clients. But just like any other professional skill, doing so always also requires practice! So, how do you build lasting relationships with your clients/customers? Our marketing administrator Lara took to LinkedIn to find…

3 Ways Using AI Can Improve Your Onboarding Process

In previous blogs, we've explored how you can more equitably and more efficiently find top-ranking candidates using AI and cutting-edge tech, as we here at Workwolf do. But, of course, the hiring process doesn't end there. In fact, a 2017 Career Builder report showed that 2 in 5 HR professionals who complete onboarding tasks manually spend 3 or more hours on collecting new employee data (per employee) alone. And while, as previously stated in another blog of ours, it cannot replace recruiters and hiring professionals, certainly, AI can improve your onboarding process. Read on to find out how you can…

Rethinking Rejection: 3 Steps for Candidate Success

Rejection is a crucial part of life: it's where we learn and make the most growth as both workers and human beings overall. But, perhaps because it's not often treated as a step in growth—or perhaps because it's simply an uncomfortable feeling—rejections are not always offered as meaningfully as they should be. Certainly, there is an art to rejecting candidates. It all starts, in fact, by rethinking rejection. That is, rethinking what it means to receive rejection and to reject a candidate so the rejection can highlight not where they failed to meet expectations, but rather opportunities for further growth.…

3 Ways AI Can Never Replace Recruiters

In the past two days alone, ChatGPT, one of the world's most popular AI platforms, was featured in two main LinkedIn News articles—one of which detailed that OpenAI, the company behind the platform, is projected to hit $1 billion in revenue within the next year. Already, as of June 2023, the platform has reportedly hit over 100 billion visits. And as the platform continues to gain traction, so too does its AI tech—that is, the more users who use the platform, the more it continues to evolve and improve in its responses. And still, there are certain processes that many…

Ghosting job applicants to become illegal in Ontario?

8 May 2024
The practice of job ghosting by companies may soon be outlawed in Ontario. The provincial government is spearheading legislative changes to penalize exploitative employers by proposing to elevate the maximum fines for violating the Employment Standards Act (ESA) to the highest level in Canada. The proposed ESA amendments will mandate larger employers to provide application status updates to interviewed job seekers. They must also disclose in publicly advertised job postings whether a position is currently available or intended to build future candidate pipelines. ESA violations also encompass failure to pay wages, discrimination against employees for taking pregnancy or parental leave, and…
