In this, the last of the four part series on metrics' and goals, we will discuss a little know, but important metric. The metrics' by which we measure our hiring managers. That is right; your hiring manager should be goaled on staffing orientated metrics also. After all, they play a very important part in hiring and in the end, it is for them.

Where do job descriptions go to die?

I wish I could find a lovely place to send job descriptions to die.



You know what I want instead? Job clouds.



Doesn't that sound lovely?



A job cloud is a lovely, puffy arrangement of projects and functions that need to be completed in order for a company to be successful. Job clouds can overlap across functional areas as the needs of the company change and the people in each cloud can change as their experience and education…

HR and Social Media: Looking Ahead

HR social media



Lots of stories – some of them hilarious, some of them tragic – about the increasing use of social media by HR professionals are out there.



Until now, much of the use has been directed toward finding and screening candidates. But problems associated with such use have begun to ripple out, and HR professionals everywhere are (or at least should be)…

Things worth doing are worth doing now.

I heard that if you have a goal, you should never say that you're going to start it sometime in the future. Don't say, "I'll start that tomorrow morning" or "I'll do that after ____" because it creates a sense of non-urgency in your subconscious. If you can put it off for awhile, why bother doing it at all? If you want to achieve something, fully commit by taking the first step RIGHT NOW.



Nearly every HR and recruiting conference has a session about "The Future of Recruiting." What… Continue

Why I remain in the field of HR...

Many people have asked why I chose the field of Human Resources but also why I stay in such a stressful line of work. This even after being unemployed since February of this year and not finding an employer who will trust that after 22 years of doing this I am an expert and really do know what I am doing! I have chosen to continue during this "down" time with providing HR consulting to smaller companies who are grateful for my experienced advice. This is such a difficult time for the smaller… Continue

Filling Executive Level Job Vacancies: Understanding Why Passion Trumps Pay

Compensation is no match for worker happiness, as I recently shared, in my post on how best to fill job vacancies. But how does compensation stand up to passion?



Recent research into what compels employee performance is changing our understanding of what motivational techniques are truly most effective. Contained within this research are important implications for staffing firms, corporations and executive search firms struggling with executive level job vacancies.

What to do when you are caught up in the Selection Spiral











One of the great mysteries in Recruiting is finding a great candidate for the position and then the hiring manager rejects them based on ambiguous reasons. They were perfect, as if the resume and the job description were separated at birth. They had drive, were personable and had all the “right stuff” you thought the position required. But for some unknown reason, you can’t get the hiring manager to budge on this.… Continue

Making a Fresh Offer to a Prior Candidate – Goldmine or Landmine?

If you’re in HR or a recruiter, you’ve had offers declined. What I find absolutely enchanting about such a miserable outcome is the underlying qualities that sneak out during this downhill process. AND, what if the candidate who declined is really the best candidate for the job?!?



Sometimes the most impressive candidates can suddenly get nasty during offer negotiation. They can become arrogant and demanding in their communications, suddenly ask for $20K more than they’d…
