So this is part 4 the end.
Over the last few weeks I have posted allot of info about the 3 models. I posted roles, responsibilities, positive and negative point about each as well as metrics used to measure the success of each.
Now for a few tidbits, things to keep in mind when deciding, and my overall thoughts.
The A-z Model or monofunction is the oldest. One person does it all. It can work, but to make it work you need to ensure the following are in…Continue

How many people took part in this weeks election? Of that, how many voted based on the local candidate and how many went with the party as a whole? I know that’s pretty much the same question, but sometimes staying with the local guy will help with local problems. Enough. Here is the real question, How many of us understood the big picture; and how many of us went in thinking that one vote won’t change the landscape?
How does the preamble relate to recruiting, sourcing and our place…Continue

In this day and age where every little look means something, and every little phrase or #tweet means something else, where do we draw the line? At work, we are expected to achieve certain goals and carry a certain aura around us, In our personal life we spend an equal amount of time (or more) trying to distance ourselves from our work persona to lead a relatively happy home life. My question is this….What would happen if we just chose to put forth one (1) image and let the chips fall where…Continue
McDonalds recently held a recruitment campaign where recruiters were tasked to hire 50,000 new hires nationwide all in one day! That is a lot of resumes and candidate information to collect.
- a burning need for job descriptions...
- leash marks from attempts to restrain you from going before "Ready, Set,... GO!"

Canada is about to have yet another election on May 2,2011, Many people have varying degrees of opinion over the value of an election, from saying that there is merit in “shaking up” the status quo, to relegating it to a popularity contest where the winner was never in doubt, as the candidate got their name out just one more time than their opponent. And it seems invariably that after the election takes place, there are nay-sayers about the process, and that they were right in not voting, as…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

Hot Spots are areas where demand is outpacing supply. The result is that prospects in these areas are more likely to be open to using your services, especially if you provide data, such as this information, on market demand and the impact this will have on their ability to hire quality talent.
