In this increasingly competitive candidate market, employers must now focus as much time on employer branding as would as they do on branding their products and services. Why? Well, if you want to create and deliver the best products and services you must promote your business to candidates in order for you to hire a high quality team of implementers.

Many studies have identified the power of saying ‘thank you.’ When you say ‘thank you’ your customers they spend more, they return less, they tell their friends about you and your service delivery. In the workplace employee productivity increases when a sign of appreciation is shown such as ‘thank you.’ Likewise vendors go the extra mile, provide deeper discounts, extend credit, deliver on time and increase consideration. This drives profit, margin and success.
If this is the case…Continue

RPO Without Raising Your Debt Ceiling
Presented By: Doug Douglas - National Engagement Manager at Stark
HR.com RPO Virtual Conference - July 18,2011
Today, our topic is RPO Without Raising Your Debt Ceiling. During our time, we will be looking at:
For both job seekers and hiring managers in Accounting, Finance, IT and Administrative Support, interviewing is arguably the most difficult part of the employment process. From the candidate’s point of view, the idea of speaking directly with a potential employer can be stressful, as exact interview questions can never be fully anticipated. Even if the candidate is confident in his or her ability to succeed in the new position, there is a possibility for error during the interview. …Continue

I've been getting some interesting intelligence as a recruiting professional engaged in a full-fledged job search for the first time in over 10 years. I liken it to the show Undercover Boss, as I'm experiencing many eye-opening…Continue
Yesterday, I had a brief but great conversation with Kyle Lagunas on Candidate Experience (which he’s going to be tackling on his awesome blog over the next few weeks). We talked about some cool things organizations are doing as well as major problems that exist in the industry with regards to Candidate Experience.
What became apparent in the conversation, however, was that we…Continue
The recruitment marketing funnel is like any other funnel, it’s wide at the top and continually narrows with each step of the apply process. From reading the initial job ad to clicking to apply to finishing the job application, there are a number of key steps where a candidate has to either move forward with the process or lose interest and drop out.
It’s at these steps in the process that you have…Continue
I believe that a constant in our society is that Talent drives innovation and execution. Talent is the key ingredient in all successful companies. Every successful venture has either a single talent or a group of talented people behind it. I don’t know many people who would argue this point.
My question is, “Why don’t more companies and HR types consider the talent of the prospective search consultant in their equation before they hire a search firm?…Continue

I had a very interesting couple of days at #truLondon this week. Over 170 recruiters, technologists and marketeers descended on the City Hotel in London to argue, discuss, debate and chat over 50 tracks on topics such as the Death of the CV (a very popular and hotly debated discussion), the Future of Recruitment and…Continue

Remember the 1960’s? Well, there are two generations who don’t.
If you were a candidate, there were three primary ways for you to find a job.
1) Complete an application, drop it off with the Personnel Department, and hope the company called you.
2) Become known as a contributor in your current company and be recruited by a recruiter or someone within another company who knows your impacts.
3) Network with people who could help…Continue
Maybe the shopper couldn’t find the shipping costs, and decided to skip it. Maybe an item was out of stock when they went to checkout, so they left the site feeling disappointed. Perhaps they had a question, but it was too difficult to contact…Continue
As a company, I’m sure you are working hard to create positive relationships with all of your customers. We all know how important it is for future business and possible referrals. You might even be making a huge investment by engaging a public relations or marketing firm to assist with your market positioning. Did you ever consider that your applicants are customers too? Are you giving applicants the same respect and creating a positive experience for them during your application and…Continue

The nature of the global workforce has rapidly changed. The idea of getting a job from one company, working their for 30 years, and then retiring is long gone. Companies need to scale their workforce up and down in order to stay competitive and job seekers have to be more flexible and mobile as well.
This has placed a premium on the need for companies to increase their agility in staffing. Companies need to source, screen, select and on-board the right talent at an accelerated…Continue

As a new member, this post is intended as an introduction.
At New Negotiator, my work is all about preparation. It accounts for 80% of what I do with a candidate.
Preparation begins well before the initial interview with an introduction to the New Negotiator method, its rules, and how the various pieces of the system fit together.
For most candidates this introduction only serves to confuse them. It’s in the actual working of…Continue

The economy has shifted; the world is changing- we all are trying to do more in less time and with less money. Less than 15% said they were “extremely” satisfied. Meanwhile, employers believe that 30% of their workers are “extremely” satisfied.
As we climb out of this recession we are entering into a brand new place, The Talent Market Place. Companies can hire top talent labor cheaper than ever before. Competitors in your…Continue

If you ask the same questions, you’ll get the same answers, and these answers won’t get you anywhere. When you’re making sales calls, adjust your mindset. Instead of seeking out orders, try to…Continue

Achieving organizational alignment is a strategic HR activity that can deliver significant benefits to an organization. Alignment is more than ideal state. It is imperative to ensure the organization is successful in getting all employees to move into the same direction, to achieve the vision of the organization.
Alignment is one of the power words in an organizational change consultant’s toolkit. Hardly a day goes by that I don’t use or refer to alignment.
Some years ago, I…Continue
