The Trolley Problem

“A trolley is running out of control down a track. In its path are 5 people who have been tied to the track. Fortunately, you can flip a switch, which will lead the trolley down a different track to safety. Unfortunately, there is a single person tied to that track. Should you flip the switch?”

Isn’t this a common problem that many Recruitment Process Outsourcing decision-makers face?

If they do nothing with talent acquisition, then surely, as discontent grows with… Continue

Successful Entrepreneurship; FOCUS, FOCUS, FOCUS

What's one very important attribute of a successful start-up? Is it the brilliant idea? Continuous innovation? or the plain old execution? All of the above are important for the young company to survive and flourish. However, over the last decade or so that I have dealt with start-ups including building a few of my own, I have realized that focus on execution is key. There are tons of examples of companies that had just another product like many others but out shined the rest with pure focus on… Continue

To Be or Not To Be; A Manager

To be or Not to Be.........a manager is the question. After a few years starting off in any job, most people ask the question, should I become a manager or continue to be an individual contributor?

In some countries, taking the role of a manager is not only prestigious but also the only way to grow one's compensation. In other countries such as in the U.S, a solid individual contributor can not only rake in the cash like any other manager but also is accepted and respected in the… Continue

You Are Not Alone....

Finding your way through the myriad of updates, news blasts and Tweets about jobs and the economy is like finding your way out of a maze. Who do you listen to and who can you trust?

It’s good to know where the opportunities lie and where to put your efforts. Knowledge is Power someone wise once said. But when is… Continue

Unemployed and Under Employed Candidate Flow is High, but Candidate Pool Still Only Half Full

When it comes to recruiting there are many aspects to focus on in the process. Some focus on the sheer quantity of resumes to provide with an acceptable pool of talent in which to choose from while others are more focused on the quality of the candidates and accessing more than just the individuals that are hitting the job boards to insure they are looking at the highest level of talent available to them.

As we know during a downturn in the economy many candidates that have been impacted… Continue

My Thoughts on Job Matching

I've been asked for consult on several occasions about whether or not to use job matching systems. Obviously depending on the system my answers will vary although if I'm asked about job matching in general here's my opinion.

Stand alone job matching platforms do not have a chance against the more traditional models, no matter the economic climate.

No so fast on leaving New York State

Back on May 22, I noted that Tom Golisano, founder and billionaire owner of Paychex, decided that New York statutory environment was driving businesses out of the state. Under the now - and hopefully single term - Governor Patterson, New York is becoming a place that is unfriendly towards business; unfriendly to business means unfriendly to recruiting.

Yesterday saw an old fashioned coup up in Albany… Continue
