Two Fundamentals to Hiring Top Talent

To hire top talent you must have something valuable to offer them. You probably think I am talking about valuables like salaries and benefits. No, these are not valuables, these are basic need requirements. Valuables are more substantive and far more important.

The valuables I’m referring to are 1) A sound business model, and 2) Great leadership.

No one wants to work for… Continue

Quit your complaining - It's time to get serious!!!!!

For the most part I decided to take the last part of 2008 off. I hung out on RBC…….learned to Twitter…… built my Linkedin network to a sizeable number (Thanks Dave!)…..and for the most part – watched our profession gradually curl up into a little ball – wondering if/when it will be OK to come out. I would venture to say I’ve seen more “Is our profession dead? ” posts than “Hey – guess what? I’m winning!” posts. I'm not just talking about RBC - I get around to them all - ERE, Fordyce, etc. So… Continue

What does workforce planning really mean? Talent management? Recruitment and retention?

Could we amend our thinking around what retention stands for?

Bernard Salt spoke at the recent "State of the Industry" dinner for the Recruitment & Consulting Services Association in Melbourne, at which I was a special guest of CEO Julie Mills. Bernard recounted a story whereby a lawyer had in years previous, lamented at how they would invest… Continue

When does the recruiting process end?

I recently had a candidate accept an offer to join my company in our Mississippi location. He has already signed the letter, put a down payment on a new residence, and has returned his direct deposit form. However, I still get calls nearly every day asking for one last bit of assistance, advice, or direction. This got me to thinking - when will my commitment to this soon-to-be employee end?

First, we need to recognize that there are varying degrees of responsibility in the recruiting… Continue

Recruitment, still a desirable career?

Imagine if Tarantino had never left that video shop - if Elvis’s parents had bought him a bike instead of a guitar - if Johnny Depp had stayed in school…Careers can define people; all they need is someone to point them in the right direction.

One of the major rewards of working in recruitment is getting the chance to be that someone; making a difference to your candidates - whether by increasing their salary, moving them closer to home, or cutting down their hours so they can spend… Continue

Self-Talk, Skills That Can Get Us Through Tough Times

I recently had a bit of a health emergency that had me experiencing severe abdominal pain. I’m fine now, but the pain was severe enough and lasted long enough that I ended up in an emergency room in southern California along with gun shot and stabbing victims, hit-upside-the-head-with-a-bat victims, and drunk/belligerent passed-out-on-the-street-and-hit-my-head victims. Then there was me. And the poor man next to me who'd had a heart attack. Oh and the girl who severely sprained her ankle on… Continue

There's something real scary at Monster

The New York-based company said Thursday net income dropped 37% in the fourth quarter, to $28.6 million, or 24 cents per share, missing Wall Street's target of a 27-cent per share profit, according to Thomson Reuters. It cited the impact of the weakening economy on online recruitment services.
