Recruiting is a time intensive process and anyone that says otherwise obviously has not done the job. But even so, every recruiting initiative doesn’t have to be time intensive or hands on. There are a few initiatives where you can use tools and services that can save you time so you can spend it on more important initiatives that cannot be put on auto-pilot. There may be an upfront cost in time to set these initiatives and tools up, however, once you have them going they should provide a…Continue

Not a single day passes by of late without hearing the dreaded words 'global talent pool', but what does that phrase actually mean in practice, if anything at all?
Consider a typical recruiting scenario. You're looking for a mid-career engineer for a specific location. There is no relocation package on offer so straight away it would be fair to assume that 99 times out of a hundred your likely candidate is going to come from a 30 or 40 mile radius of wherever the business is situated.…Continue

Today is another addition to those “literary posts” that I have already shared with you. This day is a day we take some additional advice from the greatest playwright of our time and apply it to the business world and your recruiting department, because what Shakespeare taught us about love and war, he can also teach us about business. These lessons are most applicable to your Internal Recruiting Staff. Today’s topic: Othello.
If you are unfamiliar with the…Continue

One of the most important blogs you will read is a blog that shows how to protect yourself and your company for the hassle not to mention the expense of a negligent hiring law suit. When another person feels they have been injured as a direct result of an action by an employees (an employee your recruited or hired) they have the right to file a negligent hiring suit. As a recruiter, business owner, or employer you can reduce the possibility of an incident happening in the FIRST place IF…Continue

Remember it is not personal!!!
I am taking time out form my series on “staffing function” to address those in need.
Times are strange right now. People are losing their jobs for the strangest reasons. You must always remember that in most cases it is not personal. In most cases it is not personal, it is business. That is not to say sometimes it is never personal, politics make for strange bedfellows, I have been victim of that myself more than once.…Continue
Sounds sort of weird right? A Marketing Director to work inside Human Resources. The reality is that marketing may be one of the key things missing from the world of social recruiting and justifying budgets each year to the executive team. Having a dedicated Marketing person that can analyze and execute campaigns is something that could prove vital to keeping HR recruiting budgets in tact as well as bringing in more quality talent.
Tracking all of your ads and…Continue
Having just returned from visiting family and friends in South-western Ontario, I was once again reminded of the frustrations talent faces when organizational “process” road-blocks potential.
Before I begin, I have a confession to make - my name is Lisa and I was once a process-obsessed HR Professional. I was many talents’ worst nightmare, the ironclad gate-keeper with minimal awareness and direct impact on the bigger picture within my organization. The most unfortunate…Continue

Ah, the age-old debate of the objective. Everyone wonders about it. A decade ago, no resume was complete with out a resume objective. Nowadays, resume objective statements are gradually becoming obsolete, and we (hiring professionals) do recommend omitting or replacing them with well-written professional profile summaries.
A Deeper Dive into the Debate
It’s one of those sticky questions that divides career experts everywhere. If you got 100 of them in a room, 50…Continue
The Ever expanding staffing function!!!
So this is going to be the start of a 5 part series in the expansion of the staffing function. What I mean by expanding is not that we as staffing professional are expanding what we do, although that will be a subject of future posts. But rather that the SLC((Staffing Lifecycle)see past blog postings) is being broken apart into separate functions or specialties.
Just as HR, which once encompassed everything, and is now broken…

Research - To find it, you must understand it!!!!!
Research Comes First – Research is the key to success for any great sourcer. Research to learn what you are looking for, what it might be called or known as, and were it might be found. Research is the beginning step for all great sourcers. Every great sourcer should have an organized library of resources. Whether this comes in the form of organized bookmarks and favorites or a notebook, it…Continue

An article in the New York Times suggests that employers and employees alike might be moving toward a temporary-centric staffing model.
In November 2010, 80% of the 50,000 jobs created in the private sector were temporary positions. For all of 2010, a bit more than 26% of 1.17 million jobs were temporary positions. That’s a lot.
What are we to make of such high numbers of temporary…Continue

A while ago, I mentioned to you about how I have a daughter who studies philosophy and literature in college. We’ve discussed multiple different ways her world of arts and my world of business coincide and have even produced a blog from one of those very discussions. This time we have a series of blogs set up for you, this being the first. This day is a day we take some advice from the greatest playwright of our time and apply it to the business world, because what Shakespeare taught us…Continue
Early February I posted a blog entry called “To Video or Not to Video? Resume video’s are they going to help or hinder?” and it sure did get some feedback. It also brought me to another mind-set on how video recruiting should really be handled. And of course the world has a funny way of connecting people and organizations that share…Continue

An HR thought leader is someone who has innovative ideas and concepts – someone who, despite what is going on around them, defies convention and tries something new and succeeds. It is a term that was coined over fifteen years ago and has a lot of new dynamics in the current age. I have recently written to you about resources for those who desire to be on the track to HR thought leadership but there is more to sharing innovative ideas than just outlets. There are common traits that can be…Continue
