Disconnect

Currently we are experiencing low unemployment and stalled wage growth.  There is a disconnect here and something’s gotta give at some point.

This really highlights the sloppiness of the long recovery we are in.  At some point we will get a good economy again.  It’s not horrible now, but without wage growth it’s not the real deal.

More good work and more patience.

Sponsorship

Sponsorship is a pain.  There’s a cost and there’s paperwork.

But for some searches the candidate pool is really tight and opening up to sponsorship does open up the candidate pool.  The decision to not sponsor is an easy one if you can fill the position without it.  However, the negatives are not significant enough to take the option off the table for challenging searches.

What does your business do?

What do you provide?

What do you sell?

How do you sell it?

Recruit with that in mind.

Massive Movement

In the United States about 5,000,000 people leave their job every month and a little more than 5,000,000 people take a new job.

That’s a ton of movement and clear evidence that the candidate pool is always changing.

Stuck and Getting Unstuck

You can get stuck in anything.  Fixing a mechanical problem, recruiting, sports, writing and on and on.  Getting stuck is normal.  Staying stuck is a problem.

The key to getting unstuck is to change things up.  A small tweak.  A different source.  A different tool.  As soon as you realize that you are stuck, look to change things up and get moving again.

Let's Get To Work

“Gain elevation” was one of the favorite phrases a former CEO used to say to me. I think that phrase serves us well as we talk about improving engagement.

Roster Improvement

We all want the perfect fit.  Sometimes we get it.  Sometimes it’s just not there.  One approach is to keep working at it and be patient.  Better to have the perfect fit at some point than to have a very good fit sooner.

The other approach is to constantly work to improve the roster.  Upgrade each spot every chance you get.  Work hard to expand your reach and identify the best fit that you can land for each spot.  Great sports teams do this.  Look at the New England Patriots.  They…
