Make your Employer Branding accessible!

Let’s start with a question: if you create Employer Branding initiatives but no candidate can find them, do they really exist?

Put your recruiting on auto-pilot...or at least some of it!

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…

Shakespeare Returns to HR

Are you keeping track of your Candidate TouchPoints?

A few years ago, I worked with a company that started an initiative that was called Customer Touchpoints.  This initiative was designed to track and ultimately enhance every interaction that an end customer had with our brand, products, employees and company as a whole.  With the thought being that enhancing these interactions would make for happier customers that lead to a better bottom line.  This is nothing new.  Companies, in particular marketing organizations, have been trying to better…

Process Process Process: Death to Un-tapped Talent

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…

Research - To find it, you must understand it!!!!!

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.

Where is the talent in IT?

Information technology, although it’s been a part of business for many years it has been a stronger influence lately.  Business has accepted that information technology is here to stay and that a budget needs to be allotted for IT.  While that seems like a simple concept we must consider that IT is its own world with its own language and it changes very rapidly, this can be difficult for business.  IT has been in business for some time and there is talent out there that knows everything…

What are you doing when a candidate’s bubble bursts?

The NCAA tournament is gloriously upon us and like every year there are teams that watched their team’s bubble burst on Selection Sunday (unfortunately including my alma-mater Boston College).  While their resumes were all good enough to make the tournament (and some think better than some teams that made it), the selection committee had to turn them away as they could ONLY select 68 teams.  Now the bubble bursting teams search for the next opportunity and move on to play the NIT as a…

Is Temporary Staffing Permanent Now?

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…

Is a Talent Pipeline Important for Successful Hiring?

The talent pipeline, an overused phrase developed by larger professional staffing firms that produces the idea that you need a strong set of professional people waiting at a moment's notice for the new position, the right job, the next career step.  It has become so engrained in our minds that this "best practice" is a must have.  But does it really work?  Think about it, are the best people simply waiting for the next role or the next step up the ladder.  I challenge you to re-think your…
