Why You Should Hire Veterans

Why You Should Hire Veterans

For military veterans, integrating into the civilian workforce can be a challenging experience. As a former U.S. Marine and combat veteran, I can attest to this. That’s why I was so pleased to learn about BreakLine—an education and employment company for veterans and transitioning service members—and proud that LifeLock and other companies have stepped up to the plate as sponsors. Simply put, Breakline makes it easier to hire veterans.

I recently had the honor of mentoring a group of fellow veterans through a BreakLine program. They were a hand-selected group of highly talented and motivated men and women, ready to transition into civilian careers. I felt fortunate to be working with them, and, honestly, every employer should eagerly seek them for their skills and temperament.

Investing in Our Employees

Investing in Our Employees

In this post, the head of LifeLock’s member services team shares thoughts on investing in employees.

Getting every employee to meaningfully contribute is as simple as activating their brains.

When was the last time you talked about training? Ok, now when was the last time you hosted training that was worthwhile?

According to the CEO of CareerBuilder, companies spend more per employee on coffee than they do on training. And yet, the benefits of training done right can be enormous.

Talk to anyone who’s been victimized by identity theft and who didn’t have help resolving the situation, and they’ll tell you that getting things straightened out can be complicated. There’s the time and the phone calls, not to mention the conversations that don’t always go according to plan.

Kids Take Over!

Kids Take Over!

It’s not every day we have kids take over LifeLock.

But…we’re thrilled to have more than 50 children in our offices today, as LifeLock celebrates Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.

This day is the keystone event of a public education program, connecting what children learn at school with what happens in the working world.

2016 is the 23rd year of the program, with more than 40 million young people and adults participating in some 3 million workplaces in the U.S., including our offices in Tempe, Ariz., and Mountain View, San Diego and San Francisco, Calif.

Striving for “Ta Da!” Moments at Work? I Have a Better Approach.

Striving for “Ta Da!” Moments at Work? I Have a Better Approach.

Picture this. Your boss assigns you a major project and you disappear to work your magic. When you return to reveal the results, presenting to a huge crowd and even the CEO, you receive a standing ovation from everyone in the room. Big cheers, high-fives, and backslapping—because you knocked it out of the park! Nice feeling, huh?

Be careful with this approach. My experience tells me…it rarely works.
