Recruitment Strategy Development – Successful Third Party Recruiting Relationships

RecruiterGuy has been on all three sides of the recruiting process. Three sides? Sure, I’ve been a third party recruiter, a corporate recruiting manager, and a candidate.



Today we are discussing the use of third party recruiters as a sourcing and recruiting partner. Wait! Stop rolling your eyes! Remember I’ve been on both sides of the desk. Currently as a contract recruitment consultant often I am on both sides in the same company.



Why would you want to include contingent,… Continue

Need to Skip Work? Then You Need to get Some Kids!

I used to work with this guy that would leave early on Fridays. He was a complete slacker. While the rest of us busted our humps to get resumes to clients, he’d belly up to the bar across the street. His excuse? Kids! And, he had a gaggle of them too.



Businesses lose $1.4 Billion Dollars annually to employee absenteeism due to childcare problems.



Now that I have a kid and one on the way, I get a free hall pass. Woohoo!



But, what about you buddy? You… Continue

Want to Spice Up that HR Metric? Try this Google Widget

A couple of weeks ago I was reminded about Hans Rosling and his bubble chart that animates itself. As charts go, it's pretty fun to watch. So I asked myself last weekend if I could try the chart out on some recruiting metrics just to see how it would look.



Much to the chagrin of my kids on a sunny summer day, I tested two different kinds of animated bubble charts. The first from a software company, and then the Google Bubble chart tool.

How to get best results from the consultant?

One common complaint many consultants have is that some sections of the client’s team is not able to provide enough time or resources that are critical to the success of the assignment. This happens for a number of reasons, the more serious ones stemming from resistance to an outsider’s involvement in a company’s affairs and absence of the ‘brownie point’ system of work (as the consultant neither appraises or is appraised by anyone in the organization he or she is dissociated from one of the… Continue

Application Tracking System (ATS) has successfully replaced a Business' filing cabinet (full of prospective candidate applications for jobs in your business) by having spread its wings all over the internet.

An ATS allows your business to post jobs on a job board; a career site of… Continue

Recruiters? Honest as the day is long!

I had a bad experience last week. A bad experience which quickly rebounded into a good one, I am happy to say.



It was Friday 6 pm. I was rushing to wrap up things at work. Last minute emails to complete. A call from our Director in China with a client issue. A Skype call from our Europe MD. And then my wife on the phone saying don’t forget to pick up the kids.



I race down the elevator to the under-building car park, juggling laptop, gym gear, mobile phone and security… Continue
