Should Recruiters Be Accountable For Bad Hires

Remember college? Or maybe you can’t. You slept all day and partied all night. You had zero accountability except making good grades. Then you got a job, spouse, house and kids. And then, Boom! You’re responsible for a lot of things, pal. Like a mortgage, college and keeping your job.

Accountability, it’s the word of the day. And, it may be the Recruitment word of the year. Here is why.

Agencies are accountable for every hire they make, if the person bails or is… Continue

Top 10 reasons to embrace social recruiting

Inspired by the New Zealand Prime Minister's (my Obama) 'Top 10 reasons to visit NZ' appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman (see video below), I've come up with my own 'Top 10 reasons to embrace social recruiting'. Please note that a team of script writers did not assist me to compile my list.

Top 10 reasons to embrace social recruiting:

10. The term ‘social’ makes it sound fun

9. The idea of building relationships… Continue

You Left With 3 Things, Didn't You?

Just a quick post to give you some food for thought over the weekend in regards to mobile marketing and recruitment. As I've spoken at several venues of various sizes over the last 4 months about social and mobile recruiting, I always love to ask the audience what they left the house with that morning. Check out this quick video posted where I posed the question to a local chapter of the… Continue

White Paper - Staffing Waste

Most companies do not measure and report the complete results of their staffing process outcomes.

With outcomes obscured by reporting in percentages and with blurred lines of accountability, companies miss out on better profits and competitive advantage from poorly measured staffing processes.

This white paper invites the reader to consider four forms of waste common to the staffing process.

What do you measure?

Now that the economy is beginning its slow uphill climb, boomers are beginning to think about retirement and the cycle of hiring entry-level talent is beginning again. Yet, a lot has changed in these past months and as any hiring manager can attest to, the Millennial Generation is like no other.

Three key factors make for major differences between the Millennial Generation and their predecessors when it comes to engagement and retention.

RecruitFest - Part Deux

So I had a really great time at RecruitFest! I knew it would be awesome. I thought I would have known what to expect, since I went to the Original RecruitFest, but I guess that’s the thing with unconferences, they are fluid, organic, and changing. Personally I love the unconference style of things. Probably because I don’t actually like rules all that much :P

The People...

There were so many new faces at RF2! It was really great to meet so many wonderful people. I was able to… Continue

Are these the two dumbest recruitment executives in history?

Sometimes you just have to wonder at how dumb some people can be.

I know, not a nice way to start a blog post, but wait till you hear this.

Last week I was coming back to Sydney from a week in the Aquent London office. I stopped over in Bangkok, and had two hours in the Qantas lounge there, doing what all the other business dudes were doing. Blackberry, laptop, maybe the newspaper.

Now the seats in the Qantas lounge are fairly close together, and it is… Continue

Trust is the New Green

I wonder if this phrase will grow in popularity. It was respectfully plagiarised by Thomas Brown at a CIM seminar I attended last week and appears to originate from Graham Sadd. It resonates in the current climate where trust in various institutions has, rightly or wrongly, been eroded. In this post credit crunch age the successful new entrants to various market places will be… Continue

Site ranking tools: sometimes you’re up, sometimes you’re down

Sometimes it really is all about the numbers. For instance, you know that your customers (and competitors) will probably use Alexa, Compete, or QuantCast to evaluate your site’s traffic.

Never mind that any of these can be grossly inaccurate – you have to live with their numbers (unless, of course, you’re willing to open up your Google Analytics account to pretty much everyone).…
