Wikipedia is many things to many people. For the intellectual elite, it is the diet version of actual information, for students it is the first port of call when researching a subject with which they are unfamiliar. For journalists and the casually interested it is an invaluable source of facts and figures that gives a broad, if sometimes inaccurate, overview of a popular topic de jour.
In the business world, Sustainability has been at the forefront of thinking for…Continue

Oh the wonderful land of agreements between clients and recruiters...I am not sure the yellow brick road is paved in gold on this journey.

The “fingers crossed behind the back” handshake on exclusive recruitment contracts – oh joy of joy!…Continue

Recently a company that I know well went through an interesting hiring adventure. Their story is typical and companies of all types experience these same particulars every day. You’d think that the pain of having to endure wasted time, poor decisions, and missed opportunities would change the way we go about hiring, but we’ve been doing it this way for decades and change is hard. The interesting thing is that for quite some time we have had at our disposal the systems that can change the…Continue
Facebook and other forms of social media have become increasingly popular sources for those in charge of hiring to find free information about their applicants. You may assume that certain social sites would not have a wide reach or perhaps that only today’s youth are taking advantage of social media, making a case that it isn’t worth your time to search for candidate facts through these online venues. If that’s your opinion, think again. At a recent seminar through Belin McCormick Law Firm,…Continue

Not a day goes by where I am not amazed by a new software solution that our team helps develop. From on-demand versions of our product to web-based staffing software, each bit and byte of data we work with is dedicated to helping staffing companies fill their client’s needs.

Wouldn’t it be fantastic if your recruitment message could remain the same when sourcing passive candidates from around the world? Life would be much easier…
I say this because I’m currently in the process of researching best practices for sourcing passive candidates. And, in all of my findings it seems that what works for one group of people, may not necessarily work for another. Solution: targeted messaging. I am sure you have heard…

All too often brands, celebrities and employers use the social web to pump out content, and race to grow fan numbers, with little regard to the true needs of their target audiences. This week my client Deloitte New Zealand launched a new initiative, Fan Showcase, on their award-winning Facebook page.

I’ll start this off by admitting that I am not an authority on job clubs. For some of you, this might be a good time to stop reading this blog because I just don’t get them. For those of you that are a part of job clubs, can you kindly (or not) explain to me:
- What value do you get from belonging to the group?
- What advantage have you achieved?
- How much time have you given?
- What has the group done for you lately?
- Is it just a big rah rah…
