Preparing for the CA Salary History Ban

Preparing for the CA Salary History Ban

On Oct 12 of this year, CA Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a statewide ban on employer inquiries into a candidate's salary history. This law is expected to go into effect on Jan 1, 2018, at which point California will be joining Oregon, Massachusetts, Delaware, Puerto Rico, New York City & Philadelphia in enacting this law.  As such and with the full embrace of our mission and values, Binc will be taking steps between today and Jan 1 to prepare our full company to operate within the full spirit and compliance of the law. Find out what we are doing in the latest Binc Story.

Pumpkin pie, cornbread stuffing, mounds and mounds of mashed potatoes, oh boy do I love Thanksgiving.  Not only are we given the green light to eat ourselves into a full-blown, guilt-free food coma, we are also given the opportunity to sit down in the presence of our friends, family, and loved ones to mull over all the extraordinary things in our lives and express our sincere thankfulness.

My Experience with Autism Advantage

My Experience with Autism Advantage

Recently, a few Bincers from our Los Angeles and San Francisco Units participated in a project working with an organization called Autism Advantage.  The purpose of this partnership is to provide recruiter resources to candidates who want extra help with their interviewing skills; interviewing can be a daunting and confusing experience for candidates with neurological differences, so by volunteering our time we are hoping to alleviate some of those fears.

Planned Happenstance

Planned Happenstance

When I learned about planned happenstance in a college class, I decided I would make a conscious effort to apply exploration in a way I hadn’t been fully aware of. I was going to take fun classes, go to events, volunteer, and surround myself with people who had shared interests outside of traditional networking just to see what opportunities might arise.

When it comes to choosing an employer, a greater emphasis is being placed on corporate social responsibility; a company’s sense of responsibility towards the community and the environment around them, and the footprint said employer leaves on society.  Organizations who realize this and take the necessary steps in doing so...

Yes, and...

Whenever someone finds out I do improv they immediately say, “I could never do that. Stand on stage and be funny! How do you do it?” I usually follow-up with, “Easy. Technically you’re improvising right now.” Then they look at me strangely and ask me to tell them a joke.
