Part 4 of the ever expanding staffing function!!!

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…

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…

10 Reasons A Recruiter Kicks A Job Boards Ass

1. Find the passive jobs!

Often times recruiting firms and hiring companies will not go straight to the job board route due to time constraints and costs. They will not only source candidates internally but will make a quick call to a recruiter to see who is actively searching right now, or who is “keeping and eye out” for the right job.

2. Break into a company that you have been targeting

A professional recruiter will have contacts with the top employers as well as those… Continue

Meaningful Marriages

“Faithful and committed relationships offer a door into the mystery of spiritual life in which we discover this; the more we give of self, the richer we become in soul; the more we go beyond ourselves in love, the more we become our true selves and our spiritual beauty is more fully revealed. In marriage we are seeking to bring one another into fuller life.” – Homily from the Royal Wedding by Dr. Richard Chartres, Anglican Bishop of London

Meaningful marriages are not… Continue

When In Doubt...Just be Yourself!!!

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…

Symptoms of an addiction to recruitment, otherwise called a "staffing infection" are:
  • a burning need for job descriptions...
  • leash marks from attempts to restrain you from going before "Ready, Set,... GO!"   
  • a swelling of the right eyeball when five resumes…

Recruiting and The Upcoming Election...

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…

Taming Time-Wasters

Like teenagers who let all of the cold air out of the refrigerator as they stand for minutes perusing the contents, you have people in your life who sap precious minutes from your day. From the colleague who chats incessantly about their latest drama to the client who misses appointments, these people rob you of one of the most precious and limited resources you have available…time.

To reign in these time-wasters, you must first value the minutes at your disposal and make conscious… Continue

Remember it is not personal!!!

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.…

Let’s face it…all of us, at one time or another, get stuck in rut. Common ruts are flat or declining sales, persistent challenges in finding quality talent, or the inability to motivate a team.

Take a moment this week and ask yourself…

Where am I stuck?

With your answer in hand, you may be tempted to ask yourself…

Why am I stuck?

Don’t! Just don’t go there. This may seem counterintuitive, yet, if you’re really honest about it, the why… Continue

Impatience is a Virtue

William Langland, a 14th century author, is credited with first writing that “patience is a virtue.” Clearly, he was not referring to successful salespeople.

I know that throughout my career much of my success has been a result of my impatience. I want what I want, when I want it. People, especially buyers, have never done things as fast as I’d like them to. While impatience can be obnoxious, channeled in the right direction, it is often a trait found in most, if not all, big… Continue
