Growing Markets and Industry Segments

Global Waste Management Market Predicted to Grow:

I like this…

Europe and North America are expected to witness high demand for global waste treatment disposal services mainly owing to strict environmental and government norms relevant to the proper management and disposal of waste. Furthermore, developing economies in Asia-Pacific and the Rest of the World are anticipated to experience high growth due to the continual growth of countries such as India, Russia, Brazil, and China, and the rapid pace of industrialization in these countries.

Major players dominating the global waste treatment disposal market include EnviroSolutions Incorporated, Waste Connections Incorporated, Allied Waste Industries, Clean Harbors Incorporated, and Environmental Quality Company. Other key players influencing the global market are Casella Waste Systems Incorporated, Tyco International Limited, Waste Management Incorporated, and Waste Industries USA Incorporated.

 

The Most (and Least) Empathetic Companies, 2016 from Harvard Business Review

Guess what top global companies have (and which ones lack) the most empathetic cultures and retain the best talent?

 

This list surprised me!

Check it out here!

 

 

How was the research compiled? I find the combination of analyzing tweets, Glassdoor and reported scandals quite fascinating:

…We break down empathy into categories: ethics, leadership, company culture, brand perception, and public messaging through social media. Our publicly available metrics including CEO approval ratings from staff, ratio of women on boards, and number of accounting infractions and scandals. This year we added a carbon metric. The financial information came from S&P Capital IQ, and the employee information from Glassdoor. We analyzed 2 million tweets from between September 27 and October 16 this year. An additional source of qualitative data expanded the survey: We used a panel selected from the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders. The leaders were asked to rate the companies’ morality.

 

The Best Companies Invest Aggressively in These 3 Areas

Great article for so many of my clients.jun16-30-117087933-1024x576  The points that stuck with me most include:

  • We have never met great leaders who feel they have over-invested in talent.
  • Companies can and should continue to “think big” even as they grow.
  • They’re “spiky” in how they allocate funds and they invest big in three areas:  game-changing capabilities, next-generation leaders, and next generation business models.
  • They use the power of 10X—a willingness to commit 10 times the normal resources—on their critical capabilities.

Chief Executive Officers: The Trend of Boards Recruiting CEO’s from the Outside Continues To Grow (from Strategy+Business)

This is a fascinating article. Here are a few takeaways:

  • Needing a wider set of diverse competencies and backgrounds, coupled by more independent boards bringing in their own set of diverse networks and experiences, CEO’s being brought in from the outside has surged in the last several years.
  • CEO Turnovers at the top 2,500 largest companies are up 16%. Industries with the highest turnover are Telecom, Energy and Materials. Most are planned (78%), some are forced and some due to M&A’s.
  • Utility companies are the #1 industry most likely to hire outside CEO’s from another industry.
  • Bringing in outside CEO’s is a succession planning trend that is predicated to continue – though the majority of CEO spots will still continue to be filled internally.

Headhunter Hiring Secrets 2.0

My colleagues Skip Freeman and Mike Garee have just released their new edition book: Headhunter Hiring Secrets 2.0. I was going through it and am really excited about the information they have compiled!

HeadhunterHiringSecrets- 2 - FRONT COVERI would like to thank them for including me in their recommended resources section.

You can grab your copy here: http://www.amazon.com/Headhunter-Hiring-Secrets-2-0-Career/dp/1519631049

I also want to share a quick excerpt from page 38 on the job market. I agree with their comments and my clients have shared with me recently that they have been enjoying a surge of activity too!

 

THE JOB MARKET

Recent conversations I have had with CEOs and presidents of our recruiting firm’s client hiring companies also reflect the following trends and thinking:

  • Beginning in 2016 more cash will start flowing into the hiring process simply because it must. People and the companies they now work for have been spread far too thin for far too long and retention of top talent is a growing concern for many companies.
  • Forward-thinking companies are looking to increase investment in hiring to gain a competitive edge in their market niche(s). The post-recessionary approaches of cutting costs and staff, while still attempting to increase productivity and develop differentiating products and services, have already begun to produce diminishing returns.
  • Evolutionary thinking on workforce diversity continues to expand and is proving to be a key driver of future, sustained growth. The new thinking goes well beyond the traditional Equal Opportunity Employment (EEO) concepts and principles. In a truly global economy more intricately connected than ever before, the embrace of genuine diversity is accelerating people’s ability to learn and adopt new ideas, understand and accept a wider range of perspectives, broadening virtually everyone’s thinking about situations leading to more effective solutions, and exponentially increasing creativity as well as production.
