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

Unresponsive Candidates


Here’s a whole new way to suffer a staffing shortage.  The death rate for working age people 18-64 is up 40%.  Most deaths are not classified as COVID-19.  And long-term disability claims are up.  So, what’s the solution?   We’ve faced this challenge before.  The incredible Vanishing Candidate syndrome is back. Before I give you the…
