Truth In Advertising

Imagine this.



A new customer introduces you and your firm to an opportunity where, if you successfully fill their most challenging requirement, it will open up numerous doors to other opportunities within their organization. If you land the placement, you will regarded as a “Staffing Firm above all Staffing Firms” – one that not only found their hardest to find resource but also one that uniquely separated themselves from the packs of other staffing vendors that have struck out on… Continue

Searching For the New Recruiting Model

A few weeks ago I woke up in the middle of the night and it was obvious that something was weighing heavily on my mind. Actually, it was this free-to-fee recruiting business model that I read about on a LinkedIn group.

But it was the perception and the lack of clarity on how to sell… Continue

From Chuck Hudgins' Blog: $ apropos



Over the course of the last few posts, I have fleshed out what I take to be the important aspects/core concepts of cloud recruiting. Two of the main points were:

Creating a New Company Culture

It is obvious that there are companies out there that adapt so well to the ever changing environments. Some companies have a culture where adapting to technology almost comes as second nature. Yet there are other companies refusing to accept what is changing around them. The big question is.... How does a company cope with changing its culture?



My company is strong in being ahead of the curve when it comes to products and services. LexisNexis was the first to create legal research… Continue

Recruitment Strategy Development – Successful Third Party Recruiting Relationships

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.



Turns out that creating an animated… Continue

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
