Is Your Attention Span Actually Better Than A Goldfish?

Jul 16, 2018

One of the hardest challenges we face in business these days, is also the hardest challenge people face personally every day in regards to communicating. That challenge is 2 sided. 





Here’s some fun facts to consider: 

*Experts at Microsoft argue that the average humans attention span is 8 seconds (Goldfish have 9 second attention spans!)

*Millenials (Ages 22-37yrs old) check their phones over 150 times per day

*Avg. smartphone user checks social media on their phone at least 15 times a day for an avg. of 2min/22sec each time

*Avg. office worker receives 121 emails per day

*Avg. company video’s on social media are viewed for less than 60 seconds, with only 5% of viewers watching with audio turned on

*If you’re still reading this, your attention span is better than a goldfish!

Now, why is any of this relevant to our company? Glad you asked! 

Our Acrux Staffing Team, is much more than just a staffing or employment agency in the Fox Cities & Green Bay job market. We’ve learned not to get caught up in all of the distractions on a daily basis and keep our attention / focus where it matters! Our team consists of previous business owners, experienced recruiters and seasoned salemen. Given the backgrounds of our team, we know the struggles on both sides of job placement. Finding good quality employees & retaining them is one of the toughest challenges as a business owner. Finding the right job, rather than settling for what’s available, is the toughest part for a job seeker. 

We consider ourselves the dating site of staffing agencies in Northeastern Wisconsin. Not only are we going to match employers and employees with relevent experiences, we are going to match the culture or personality traits amongst them. Finding a job that fits your experience or a companies job description, doesn’t necessarily mean they will enjoy working with one another. That’s why we go the extra mile to tour our customers facilities, meet their staff & establish a genuine relationship in order to match a candidate with the right culture of work as well! 

Although we are listed as a staffing / employment agency in the Appleton & Green Bay areas, we are more a recruitment agency with a passion for filling jobs with and for the right people! So even if you’re currently working but not happy where you are at, we can find you the right job! If you’re a business owner or HR manager struggling to get the RIGHT candidates, we’d love to get to know you more and discuss how we can fulfill your needs. 

Admittingly, we may not be the fastest staffing agency in the Northeastern Wisconsin area. We may not even be the cheapest. But we will have the most attention to detail, best communication and be the hardest working employment agency in the Appleton and Green Bay areas!
