Have you all heard about AcquiHiring?
It's when a company buys another just to acquire its employees!
Sounds strange but it's happening with regularity and John Sullivan talks about it here.
AcquiSourcing is what happens BEFORE an acqui-hire is made and is a perfect mesh with the skills we already possess as sourcers and recruiters. The missing part is what do we say when we approach an owner to ask him if his company is for sale and then, depending on what he says, what to say/do next!
I've begun writing about it on the MagicMethod site in the Blogs section.
This is the NEXT BIG THING in sourcing and if you want to learn more about it attend SourceChat today over on the MagicMethod network at noon ET.
I hope to see you there!
