Recruitment Process Outsourcing. This phrase burst onto the recruiting scene in the past 10-15 years or so, but the concept of it has been around for much longer. It was consistently used in the 1970’s during Silicon Valley’s very competitive market for high tech labor – it was very hard to find…Continue
We’ve all seen them. Those annoyingly entertaining mimes who pull themselves down a sidewalk with an imaginary rope, or ride an imaginary escalator down behind a barricade. But the one they are probably the most well-known for is the imaginary box that has seemed to trap them. They can press on the walls, scream, pound their fists – but nothing penetrates that box!
If you are a HR…Continue

A recovery from the deep U.S. economic recession has reopened the wound of the talent shortage. Companies are seeing the repercussions of having not managed talent and rewards effectively in the downturn and now their high performers are looking for better opportunities at companies that not only have a successful brand and business model, but also have a modern talent strategy that supports them as a professional and across teams and the broader enterprise.
HR practitioners and researchers alike agree that employee referral programs are an excellent source-of-hire. Cost-effective, yet sporting a significant ROI, referral programs enable corporate recruiters to leverage their employees’ networks to reach quality talent pools. With a faster time-to-hire than average, referred applicants are recognized as more productive additions to the workforce.

A values-based corporate culture is fast becoming an integral factor in the workplace. It sets the tone for the daily employee experience – employees want to feel good about their work activities, and a positive culture fosters deep awareness and identification.
The effectiveness of employee referral programs is affected by the quality of the corporate culture. Since referral programs are optional to employees, and lie outside of their job descriptions, they are more likely to be…Continue

Leads present an excellent opportunity for corporate recruiters to garner more qualified candidates via their employee referral programs. Permitting employees to do their own initial qualifications and refer names and contact details without resumes opens the door to a wider group of top talent who don’t necessarily have updated CV’s ready and available to submit.
However, many corporate recruiters are hesitant to dive in and forego resumes at the referral stage. Reasons range from…Continue
