How To Bring The Best Talent To Your Team

How To Bring The Best Talent To Your Team

Bet on people, not strategies.” Lawrence Bossidy, Retired CEO Allied Signal

Great help isn’t difficult to find when talent looks for you when you have a solid showcase of work. Employees favor companies with great societies, competitive pay, and advancement opportunities. Giving employees what they require will assist you get — and keep — the top talent that you want.
Bringing lead talent to your group not only influences the accomplishment of the company’s vision but also the existing individuals of your group. Talent can be characterized in different ways such as experience level, instruction, preparing, achievements, and a long time within the industry. By composing a list of perfect qualities of an employee, one can effectively narrow down the list and get the favored employees for your group. The following practices help to bring the best talent to your team:

  1. Know your company’s mission and values.

When you know the most important values and skills of your company, you can fill positions around these needs rather than hiring one employee to replace another. When you are clear with your values and your brand from the beginning, candidates have a better time assessing whether or not they are a clear fit for your organization. These will be attractive qualities for prospective talents to the individuals you are looking to recruit.

  1. Connect online.

Most of us are extremely active on social media in some way, whether it is on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, or a combination of these platforms. Social media marketing can be a good tool to attract the best talent as it allows organizations to showcase their identity, values, and mission. It also allows these organizations to find suitable individuals for existing positions. This is done by use of keywords like job titles on LinkedIn enabling the organization to find the candidates with the skills and experience they want. The candidates can then be contacted directly to see if they can work for you.

  1. Construct a positive environment and strong culture.

When you treat employees well, you will attract the best. If your employees feel valued, wanted and respected, they thrive at your company and in turn the organization gains a good reputation. The best talent wants to work for a company that is the most reputable and ensuring your company is one of the best will make you stand out from the crowd in its specific sector. If your company does great things, great people will want to do them with you.

  1. Cultivate Employee Ambassadors.

You can make your employees brand ambassadors for your organization and encourage them to recruit talent from their contacts. Your current employees are most likely to know an individual who is the right person for the job. However, you will need to guide them to ensure they properly communicate your best brand attributes so that they recruit talent with your mission, vision, and values in mind. This ensures that the talent they bring to your team is a great fit for the company.

  1. Describe your benefits

Gone are the days where candidates relied solely on hours of work and pay on offer. Candidates now consider multiple factors such as values, reputation, career progression, and more. Consider what you can offer your employees. There should be an esteem balance between fun and serious activities. Employees like it when you offer adaptable plans for getting work done. Up-and-comers and workers additionally like professional openings that are hands-on and help in possible advancements in their careers. These benefits should attract the best talent to your team.

A Simple But Destructive Email Scam

A Simple But Destructive Email Scam

There is an upsurge of email scams, otherwise known as phishing scam where email conversations are intended to trick victims into making payments into a fraudulent bank account. At DewCIS, we take this opportunity to alert Internet users against ongoing email scammers who manipulate email addresses to deceive the victims into trusting the authenticity of the email and obtain sensitive information.

The scam starts by the fraudsters hijacking an otherwise very genuine email conversation between a supplier say of email address Frankline Njuguna <fnjuguna@tamshi.com> resident in Kenya and a genuine client John Doe <johndoe@shippers.com> resident in Spain for example.

Because scammers are motivated by money, they will lay in wait and only hijack the email conversation when a prospect of payment is real.

At this point, the fraudster will create parallel seemingly similar email addresses as follows; Frankline Njuguna <frjuguna@tamshi.dr> for the supplier and John Doe <johrdoe@shippers.com.dr for the customer.

With this communication hijacked, the fraudsters will be well positioned to act as both the supplier and the client sharing only that information they find appropriate such as fraudulent banking details to the unsuspecting client.

The supplier still believing that they are communicating with genuine client negotiates and shares quotations with the client, while the client still believing that they are dealing with the genuine supplier confidently makes payment to the fraudulent bank account. Immediately the money hits their account, the fraudsters immediately cease communication and disappear into thin air.

It is only when the client doesn’t receive the agreed services in time and either makes a call or reach out using another channel to the supplier that the parties realize that they have been defrauded.

This sort of trickery is not very sophisticated at all. The fraudsters are simply taking advantage of our “humanness”; that users do not often care to check the true email addresses of the people they are interacting with. Thus, the fraudsters simply modify the email address but retainsthe username of the source and or recipients, and therefore catching us unawares.

This is very easily done within existing domain registries. For example, it would cost someone just about $ 2 to register a shippers.com.drdomain and create an email address johrdoe@shippers.com.dr for use to defraud unsuspecting users.

From this fraud, it is clear that the fraudsters are possibly collaborating with an insider at either the client or the supplier business;­ the accomplice who steals the email trail from the mailbox and shares with the fraudsters. Since this is the point of entry and therefore the weakest link, there is need to limit transactional email communications such as those with bank account details to only the necessary staff.

The other very important check is to encourage communication between the customer and the supplier using alternative channels including telephone, WhatsApp etc particularly as a follow-up to ensure the appropriate banking details are shared.

Another practical way of preventing email fraud particularly on sensitive or confidential information is to wrap the content of your emails encrypted with a password that is time bound to expire within a specified time period. To ensure that none other than the intended recipient accesses the message, the passwords ought to be sent via a different channel such as via a phone call or SMS.

While it takes practice to pay attention to domain email addresses of users, we are encourages to always be vigilant so that one can spot the tweaks and tiny differences in email addresses and catch the fraudsters on their tracks and avoid losses.

Wanjiku Ventilator DIY Using a Car Window Motor

For construction of the ventilator, we need:

  • A piece of light metal arm.
  • A flat piece of wood
  • A car window motor
  • Apiece of “shock absorbers”

Assembling the parts together:

  1. Cut the metal arm to a desired length, used to press the Ambu bag.
  • The metal arm is fastened on the motor as shown below:
  • Get the correct position on the board and mount the motor.
  • Mount the piece of shock absorber to get the base for the Ambu bag
  • After assembling the parts together:

For rotating the dc motor we need to connect the Arduino circuit.

The components required are as follows:

  • Arduino Uno
  • VHN3SP30 dc motor driver
  • Potentiometers
  • Breadboard and Jumper wire
  • 12v 2A Adaptor
