Recruiting metrics provide us an opportunity to take a analytical approach to hiring by allowing us to quantify the hiring process. Tracking day-to-day details provide us a look at the big picture.
Almost all HR metrics record history. It has little value in the fast-changing business world where any of your numbers, positive or…Continue

Recently when I presented the “Secrets of a Successful Job Search” at the University of Utah, I asked the participants “How many of you feel you have been discriminated because of your age?” About a third of the people raised their hands.
When you read about diversity recruitment most people discuss systems and solutions but I have yet to see anyone discuss the root problem. Possibly the reason that you do not see the root cause is that most people who write on the subject are outside…Continue
