About - Employers Intelligence

I frequently come across unusual insights. Seemingly small observations with game-changing potential.

The obvious question is, what should I do with all this?

Subjects touch on…

  • Search Strategies
  • Vanishing Candidates
  • Payroll Pressures
  • Employees and Automation
  • Business Development
  • Government Regulations
  • Inflation
  • Stock Prices and Dividends

They often extend beyond typical recruiting activity.
And, honestly, some write-ups can get long, when I explore themes in depth.

I do it, because I believe it’s important.

You and I might never meet.
So, I offer my studies here, in Employers Intelligence.

Hopefully, a great idea will find a way to cross your path.
And maybe, one day, you’ll be able to run with it. -TD

UPS Delivers The Logical Conclusion


Here’s something to ponder.  One company hires, based entirely on character and motivation.  Really.  Then UPS rolls out its quick-hire strategy with no background check, at all.  At the same time, many thousands of professionals lose their jobs, based on principle.  What’s going on?  I’m not going to develop this deeply.  I’m not sure I…
