Temp Recruitment Agencies Share the Do’s and Don’ts on Work Selfies


There’s no stopping the prevalence of selfies on social media, and the word itself has even warranted a space in the Oxford English Dictionary. Selfies are being taken on special occasions, from holidays, festivals and birthdays, to chance encounters with favourite celebrities. Even non-special and ordinary days are, for some people, the perfect opportunity to take the perfect selfie.

Selfies posted on Instagram, and even on the new platform called Snapchat, are some people’s way of getting through an uneventful Monday and celebrating the arrival of Friday. While selfies may seem like harmless fun, these can lead you into trouble in your workplace, especially if you post inappropriate ones.



Do You Have the “Boss” Factor? Recruitment Agencies Suggest the “E” Test

Background of E-Test

The “E” test is just one of the many used by social scientists in measuring a person’s ability to understand other people’s perspective. A group of American social scientists, led by Adam Galinsky at the Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, used the “E” test, along with other techniques to study the link between empathy and power. It was found that people who are in the position of power share a common way of writing the “E” distinguishable from that of followers.
