After recently watching a TED Talk called “How Great Leaders Inspire Action” by Simon Sinek, I was struck how the same concepts are immediately applicable to our job posts and how we pitch the jobs we recruit for.
In the video, Simon Sinek shared his golden circle and the following definition of terms:
What – What we do
I am currently reading a must read for all HR professionals, The Rise of HR: Wisdom from 73 Thought Leaders*, which was recently released by the Human Resource Certification Institute. It makes the case for the fact that the HR space has changed to one centered in VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous). The contributors…Continue

When it comes to job interviews, recruiters often find themselves in the fantastical realm of fiction. There's something about the tension of the situation and the acute need to impress that turns people into elaborate story-tellers, full of exaggerations and inflated claims.
In fact, a whopping 81% of people lie during job interviews. Yes, those digits are the right way around...81%! For…Continue

A misconception amongst many hiring managers is the belief that being a recognised or international company/brand is enough to attract the best talent. New research has now proven statistically that this is definitely not the case. The real truth is, regardless of your company size, finding…
I’m working on a blog post on job interviews — from the employer side of the desk. After all, there are thousands of “how-to” articles, blog posts, and advice on “acing the interview” from a candidates viewpoint. But, how about “acing the interview” as employer, while at the same time providing a great…Continue
“Screw your cubicle farm!” The free agent nation is here.
In 2001, Dan Pink published a bestselling and forward-thinking business book titled Free Agent Nation: The Future of Working for Yourself. By all current reports, that future has arrived.
If the millennial generation will become predominantly free agents, how will this impact recruiting and HR over the next decade?

Recruiting is difficult. Hiring an awesome employee is a very personal experience for both the candidate and the hiring team. Candidates have aspirations, thoughts, beliefs, and feelings. Recruiters have the same, with the added pressure of big hiring goals to hit. We’ve been curious to know more about the things corporate recruiters perceive to being in their in…Continue
Succession planning is often found on the back burner, and with it, a focus on retention. This makes zero sense. Succession planning is a vital part of keeping a business running with as few hiccups as possible,…Continue

I often get questions from recruiters in regards to making phone calls; in fact I just received a call from Vince asking how I deal with call-reluctance.
