Where to find your next superstar employee

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Every chief executive officer (CEO) wants superstars in his or her company. Superstars are high performers, innovative, creative, and they deliver outstanding results. Superstars are highly sought-after performers who make their managers look great.If superstar employees are sporadically hired throughout the organization, there is the risk of a superstar mentality that creates isolationism. An entire department might end up revolving around one person rather than developing teams of people to be mutually accountable to deliver results. Teams of superstars step in for one another, are cross-trained, and live with norms of success for all.Single superstars are difficult to retain if the team doesn’t have a superstar mindset. Superstars want to work for superstar companies that attract, develop, and acknowledge high performers throughout the organization. continue reading »last_img read more

Romney Campaign Focuses On New Trio Of States

first_imgRomney Campaign Focuses On New Trio Of States This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations. Sign up for an email subscription. With just days to go until Election Day, the Romney campaign sees possibilities to win in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Minnesota, while pro-Obama groups launch new ads about Medicare and women’s health.The Washington Post: Romney Forces See Pennsylvania, Michigan And Minnesota Ripe For Turning RedAfter a season dominated by talk of Ohio, Virginia and Florida, Campaign 2012 suddenly shifted focus to a new trio of states Wednesday amid a new verbal battle about which candidate is better positioned to win on Tuesday (Balz, Merkon and Kane, 10/31).The New York Times’ Political Memo: In Dwindling Days Of The Race, Romney Takes A Softer TackThere are plenty of carry-overs, of course: he dings President Obama’s health care law as cumbersome and bemoans the size of the federal debt as immoral, as he has since 2011, when he entered the race. But even if the extent of the evolution is up for argument, there is little debate that Mr. Romney is finishing the presidential campaign as a milder candidate than when he started (Barbaro, 10/31).The Washington Post: Ad Watch: Pro-Obama Group Ties Romney To Medicare FraudWhat it says: “[Rick] Scott ran a company that paid a record fine for committing Medicare fraud. Then, as governor, Scott cut millions from health care. Romney was director of a company that stole millions from Medicare. Now, Romney’s plan would end Medicare as we know it.” What it means: A new Kaiser Family Foundation poll finds that Romney is closing the gap with President Obama on who would better handle Medicare. This ad seeks to widen it by linking Medicare cuts to Medicare fraud (Weiner, 10/31).The Hill: Planned Parenthood Launches $853K Ad Buy Against RomneyPlanned Parenthood’s political wing is making what could be its final attempt to alienate female voters from Mitt Romney before the election. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund (PPAF) is spending $853,000 to run a 60-second radio ad on Colorado, Ohio and Virginia airwaves until Tuesday. The ad accuses Romney of holding views on women that “seem like they’re from the 1950s.” It also paints Obama as the right choice on the economy (Viebeck, 10/31).last_img read more
