7 Easy Steps for Starting and Maintaining an HR Blog
1. Get permission from the boss. Unless, like me, you are the boss. Then just do…Continue
As you know, I spend a fair amount of time blogging about recruiting software and the talent management industry. I’m always surprised by the small number of HR professionals who are also blogging. It’s true, it does take time, but I’ve found that blogging is a great way to get more exposure for our company and products.
My intention in this post is to inspire other HR professional and recruiters to also consider blogging so with that, here are my 5 Reasons Why Blogging in…Continue

A few days ago I visited Belgatos Park in Los Gatos. Los Gatos literally means the cats. It is in this park where Mountain Lions, Deer, Bobcats, Boar, Hawks, Coyotes and a whole host of wildlife call home near the perennial Silicon Valley. It is interesting to return to nature, and view from a distance the downtown of the valley that has been at the forefront of so much change.
Wikipedia has this to say:…

The Society for Human Resource Management’s 63rd Annual Conference and Exhibition is being held from June 26-29, 2011, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. eEmpACT is very proud to be participating in this event, as we agree with SHRM that the next two years will be a turning point in the HR profession and a vital time for the recovery of our nation.

Our team is working really hard this week to complete a couple of really big projects for some clients. Much of the work on those projects has to do with corporate recruitment processes and staffing organizational design. I was taking a break today from my work, and I reflected on something really…Continue

Some time ago, I mentioned to you all about my daughter who happens to study philosophy and literature in college. Since college is over for the summer, this series is also coming to an end. We’ve discussed multiple different ways her world of arts and my world of business coincide and have even produced a blog series from those very discussions. Today is the final version to those that I have already shared with you and it will be the last in this expansive series. While I believe that…Continue

Unemployed need not apply..Really…Really!!
You read it right, there are actually companies out there who are putting up signs or including in
their job descriptions that the “unemployed need not apply”.
How pathetic, how disgusting, how wrong. The bad part is because the unemployed are not a
Protective class, there is nothing that can be done about it. Now of course if the company must
The Spring HR and Recruiting/Staffing conference season is almost complete (we have the exciting SHRM Annual Conference still upcoming in at the end of June). I must say, I have thoroughly enjoyed the 2011 conference season. Most of the sessions I attended at ERE Expo Spring 2011 and at the SHRM Talent &…Continue
Process makes perfect!!
As, with anything, that involves multiple people or entities having to work together, it goes much easier when everyone understands the hows and whys of working together. As a staffing professional, we must ensure we establish the process we will use to help our clients fill positions. A well established and agreed upon process makes it easier all around. Everyone knows what to expect from you and what is expected from them. Go so…Continue
I know, amazing. Guilty as charged, right here too.
Let me back up…If your organization is tactical in nature and responsive to every fire the C-level throws at the HR department to fix, then that is precisely what you will get – every fire and nothing more. If you are responsive, but also focused on autonomous mastery of the HR discipline, consistency of purpose, and include everyone in your organization in this transformation – the C-level will come to you for that…Continue

Recruiting is a specialty art. It is not as simple as providing full life cycle support. The key elements of a successful recruiter include:
Client Relationship Building

...maybe. Certainly the phrase is. Ok I hear ya about the evangelism and all the hype, but that happens whenever you have a new thing on the block of any magnitude. Over time it dies off and we get to making the most of the opportunity. I've been around long enough to know, and the Internet was the last time we had such frothing at the mouth.
Back then people argued the toss over…
"Treat them the way you would want to be treated"
Candidate and Client Satisfaction!!!- Well this is one of the most important issues for a recruiter/staffing professional. It is not just about filling positions. It is about having a good relationship with your client and ensuring you treat each candidate with respect. Remember it is a small world and I can guarantee you, candidates talk. You treat one bad and it will get…Continue

If most hiring managers knew what games many (not all) HR staffing types play in blocking external recruiters, who can actually fill their hard-to-fill openings,...they would (should) cocoon them and convert them into speed bumps befitting their role in the recruitment process.

No such thing as too much communication!!
As with any relationship communication is key. I have found it is far better to over communicate than under communicate. Clients appreciate knowing what is going on and one of the biggest complaints about recruiting is lack of communication. One of the biggest ways to do this is to manage your inbox. Do not let it become overwhelming and a place where emails go to die. Stay on top of it. Respond to…Continue

My apologies for no post last week. I have been very ill. But am back up, sort of, and running so here we go!!
Change can be good!!!!
Change, one of the scariest words in the English dictionary, also one of the most exciting, and perhaps one of the most important. Change means - to become different, or make something or somebody different. For us in staffing it means the ability to be flexible. This means just…Continue

1. Cold Calls. If you are cold calling me from any company that rhymes with Blobert Blaf or similar companies, call me from your mobile because I can see your company on my caller ID. Expect me to still blow you off, but call me in 6 months to show me you made it. We may talk then.…Continue
