To celebrate National Photograph Month, take a look at some of MMG's favorite stills from the past. 

Using Social Media to Screen Staffing Job Candidates


David Gee, www.staffingtalk.com

Three out of every four American adults are on social networking sites, with many of them using it as a way to search for jobs. But that works the other way as well, with 91% of companies surveyed by Reppler recently saying they use social networking sites to screen prospective employees. 


Here are some of the other highlights of the survey:

  • 76% of companies use Facebook to screen candidates, 53% use Twitter and 48% use LinkedIn 
  • 69% of companies say they have rejected a job candidate because of something they saw on social media
  • 26% of companies surveyed say they haven't rejected a candidate via social media screening
  • 5% say they do not use social media sites to screen prospective candidates at all

MMG Production Managed a detailed project for The Dept of Veterans Affairs, which included shooting a scene in the Sterile Processing Unit of the Erie VA Medical Center. Other VA Medical Center shoot locations include: Wash. DC, Vallejo, CA, and Altoona, Pa.  The completed modules will include Whiteboard Animation and six vignettes with live talent.

Dental care is one of the greatest unmet needs among children in the US, and nearly 16 million low-income children go without care.
MMG's crews shot footage for our client of hundreds of children and their families lined up for free dental exams provided by Dental Professionals.  The shoot occurred through the night and into the morning to promote a program providing cost-effective policies so that millions of children can receive treatment. 

W-2 or 1099? Why It Pays to Classify Your Employees Correctly.


Rebecca Cenni, www.entrepreneur.com


On March 26, 2015, Microsoft announced it would require many of its 2,000 contractors and vendors to provide their employees with 15 days of paid time off for sick days and vacation time. In the absence of a federal policy for paid sick leave, it is remarkable that a large Fortune 500 company like Microsoft is now performing the role of setting employment policy for other businesses. It is also striking news for those who remember that Microsoft paid $97 million more than a decade ago to settle a case brought by re-classified independent contractors who sued for employee benefits.


Ultimately, the news from Microsoft may also have a substantial side effect: forcing an increasing number of companies to take a second look to ensure they are correctly classifying temporary workers, either as W-2 employees or independent contractors.
