Why The "Human" in Human Resources & Talent Acquisition Will Remain At The Forefront







It may come as a surprise or not, but there are multiple writers these days whom seem to think that the "Human" element in Staffing is going the way of the dinosaur.  It seems a popular writing technique to bring out the sensational, the "gotcha" headline, and the "Automation is Coming" & "Your…

What It Takes To Succeed - The Recruiter's Perspective.

USS Hornet

 

On July 4th, 2007, I visited the USS Hornet.  Steeped in History, she sits proudly in the San Francisco Bay.  On that day, we witnessed fireworks over the Bay with a wonderful daylight concert, games, and a fun family outing.  The Hornet sank the Yamato, a Japanese supercarrier in WWII and recovered the astronauts who flew the first mission to the moon.  It was here as I witnessed over the SF Bay…
