The 5 Ps of Sourcing

Someone left a message over on the SourcersGuild board and I thought you all might have an interest in it and in my answer!

So I need to go back to the basics. I have just started looking for talent in a new industry (HVAC Custom Electrical Design). I know I need to start with a competitors list and do some research. Does anyone have a train of thought list that they use when they are… Continue

Good habits...(how flossing every day changed my life)

I have always hated flossing and I am guessing I am not alone. I did it once a week for good measure, not including the frantic flossing the week before the dentist visits.

Well, a friend told me that if I floss every day, there are other great side effects. She suggested that her allergy symptoms went away after a week of flossing. I suffer from bad allergies and frequently have trouble hearing because I get so stuffed up.

So I started, and you know what? My hearing is… Continue

Top 5 pharma layoffs in 2008 -

Fierce Pharma outlines how 20,000 pharma folks were laid off from 5 companies in 2008.

I hate to point this out, but if big pharma can let all of those folks go without major issues continuing to do business, then those employees were not adding value (or very much of it).

As one marketeer put it to me: if you can’t show me where you made me $$, saved me $$ or saved me time - why do I employ you? Pharma sales reps with biology/chemistry or molecular degrees - send me your… Continue

My Favorite Time Of Year-Time To Raise the Bar

It's been 1 year since I made a vow to myself to make the most of 2008.

A year later I look back on that time and realize a year changes so much. Never does one really think about what they have until they look in the mirror and reflect on who they have become. This is me.

It never ceases to amaze me how much we should love each and every day for the miracles we have. It is as though life always points us where we need to go, when we need it most. At least it seems that… Continue

Being a General in the War for Talent during an Armistice

If you have been reading my posts here (thanks if you have :)) then you'll probably realise that I have been thinking, studying and reviewing the role of Internal Recruitment within my organisation. It has been a really interesting, revealing and introspective journey. Especially with focus sharpening in the areas of the business which are not what some people would consider as core.
