Empty Seats Are Like Open Wounds

In an organization, an empty seat is like an open wound.

Waiting for Talent is Unacceptable

We live in an on-demand world. Every day, we access more and more products and services at the click of a mouse, touch of a button, or by dialing our phones. Many companies have installed apps, websites, and other devices allowing their employees to order food, report updates, and procure supplies the moment they are needed. This same convenient access must be applied to acquiring talent.“Downloading” the next hire should not be a reactive process where people access resumes to begin a search.…See More

Instantaneous Hiring: The Next Frontier of Talent Acquisition

Why Aren’t Buyers More Loyal?

I bet many reading this share my love of great coffee. We each go to a particular coffeehouse, knowing that our desire will be satisfied. Our loyalty is born out of the quality of the brew and being able to get it each time we walk in the door.However, let’s say that next Monday my go-to provider runs out of coffee. No problem. I just grab a cup of inferior joe at the office.On Tuesday, the same thing happens. They run out again. No time to stop somewhere else, so another mug of inferior…See More

Effective Hiring is Never a Solo Act

Companies are remiss if they go it alone in trying to recruit good people. Most organizations are unable to fulfill all of their own needs for full-time employees and temporary help. And that is okay, as hiring is not their core business. This is the staffing industry is a vital contributor.Staffing and recruitment companies must do a better job of delivering services that allow their customers to always hire someone today or acquire contract talent in an instant.

Time Kills Brain Cells, Not Deals

It’s been said that time is not on our side. The latest stats back this up. According to the Dice-DF Vacancy Duration Measure, time-to-fill has risen to its highest level in 15 years.The problem is not capabilities, as there are more of those today than 15 years ago, especially the added efficiencies through technology. Nor is it available talent, as competent recruiters can always find someone to do…See More

Noise Canceling the Competition

Competitive golfers and dancers keep their competition top of mind, knowing their influence can undermine them at any moment. Just the noise from these competitors can cause them to slice a drive or miss a step, creating a lost opportunity which ends up losing the match. The competition ends up stealing their trophies, their winnings and even their self-confidence and pride. The real power of these competitors comes from where they live—right between the ears. That’s why we often hear people…See More

Leadership Powerups

Effort is the Enemy

Hiring managers typically need that empty seat filled yesterday, yet they often wait until tomorrow or a series of tomorrow’s before that happens. It is this very gap between yesterday and tomorrow that holds one of the greatest opportunities for staffing and recruiting firms.The staffing industry can quickly elevate its reputation by more consistently providing talent on demand, right when it is needed. This not only delivers tremendous value; it is how firms can be rewarded with a more loyal…See More

Achieving More by Doing Less – The Lean Approach to Success

While less is more is a popular statement, many people find that saying it is much easier than living and working in this manner. Achieving better sales, recruiting better talent, and being more effective as a leader requires doing less while focusing on always taking action on the next right thing.Here are the three steps to create the space and focus needed to become a leaner and more proficient leader, salesperson, or recruiter:Identify which aspects of your job you are attempting to perform…See More

The Choice Between Effective or Defective Leadership

A leader need not be brilliant to be effective. Efficient leaders always do three things:Set clear and reasonable expectations.Succinctly communicate what is expected.Unwaveringly hold people accountable to these expectations.These three behaviors, consistently executed, are the hallmarks of a simply effective leader. The difference between these individuals and those just getting by is the development and utilization of these traits regardless of market conditions.Companies led in this manner…See More

Megavitamins for Customer Relationships

It’s often said that salespeople should listen more than talk, however, those spouting this wisdom typically are the ones who continue to inundate those around them with voluminous amounts of words. In fact, most salespeople spew a stream of factoids, details, and feature-benefit chunks of information all over prospective clients.No one likes to be thrown up on, and it’s certainly no way to start or grow an important relationship. Instead, our industry must adhere to a better standard:Say…See More

Empathetic Innovation

Staffing and recruitment firms who are achieving the fastest growth in margin percentage and dollars are taking their cues from some of the best at innovation: Starbucks, Airbnb, Warby Parker, Patagonia, Kickstarter, and Apple. Instead of bombarding tons of prospects with mundane sales and marketing pitches, hoping to get them to care about their offerings, they are figuring out what matters most to these buyers, then delighting them, one person at a time. This approach, called Empathetic…See More
