The president of our company and I were recently invited to attend a keynote given by one the 50 most influential people in business internationally and I could go on and on with all their credits but will reframe. She was asked what bit of information she would pass on to someone just getting started. I could give you her answer but that was not the point of this post.
The more I thought about her speech the more I thought how there is really little difference in those at the top…Continue

The bonus is a central component of the employee referral program. It comes in different variations – cash and prizes/non-cash awards. In the grand scheme of planning the technical details of the actual program, the deliberations over this aspect could fall by the wayside, with companies opting for cash as the easier, no-fuss alternative.

Okay, so you have recruited just the right candidate. According to his resume his credentials are impeccable. He has all the required skill sets and vital experience in dealing with all the disciplines the job will require. His references provide you with glowing reviews. You have conducted background checks as part of your employment screening process, and your candidate emerges squeaky clean. Nothing that is noteworthy.
Or maybe there is some kid stuff type offenses on…Continue

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

Much has been said (and to my chagrin), about recruiters who are money hungry, blood sucking, pieces of …well you get the point. I would like to believe that recruiters love what they do and genuinely look out for the best interest of their candidates. After all, we’re all in this business to better the careers and quality of lives of people, right? A little money earned by recruiters doesn’t hurt…Continue

The relationship between corporate recruiters and candidates has witnessed a shift in the information available to the two parties. The widening use of the Internet, particularly social media, has opened up access to data on both sides, ushering in an age of transparency and a heightened potential of mutual communication. In other words, candidates are now in a better position to take the initiative and interact with organizations. This means that corporate recruiters have to step up…Continue

Providing your employees with social tools to make job referrals can give your company’s employer brand an incredible boost. Your employees are your company’s best ambassadors, and when they share your job vacancies with their social networks, they not only provide their connections with direct access to the corporate recruitment team, but also send all the right messages about the kind of workplace you run.

CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists (EMSI) recently conducted a study tracking labor trends in the U.S. The study looked at which industries have seen the highest job increases post-recession, as well as the U.S. cities which have seen the biggest job growth in recent years.
With the US elections fast approaching, let’s take a look at the parallels between the campaign season and the sourcing of top talent. Both election nominees and corporate recruiters actively engage in a series of tactics to prove that theirs is the winning side, whether it be political party or company. Their strategies serve to paint a positive picture of the results they pledge to carry out, including:
1) Benefits: First things first – what do you bring to the table that…Continue

Here’s the deal about your employment brand – you can’t make it up and make it what you want it to be. Like your culture, it already exists. Can you move it over time? Sure, with some hard work. But back to…Continue

Sales is a highly-pressurised sector, regardless of the industry in which the job falls. Traditionally target-driven, anyone that wants to go into sales must be in possession of particular characteristics.
Those that thrive in a sales environment are usually cut of a certain cloth: fearless, passionate, approachable and able to speak eloquently to anyone. They also need to develop a thick skin, in order that they might cope with the knock backs and doors slammed in faces that will…Continue
