The seven deadly signs of a broken recruitment process (and how to mend it)

I’ve observed recently a series of hiring processes in firms from mature to entrepreneurial where each was an object lesson in how not to conduct an interview process and which profoundly affected their ability to win the best candidates.

TLS Continuum Part 17: I Can See Forever

Back in the early 70’s there was both a hit song titled I Can See Forever and a best selling book about GM titled On a Clear Day you can see General Motors. The point of the analogy can be rooted in Deming’s 6th point of quality. In this point he emphasized…

TLS Continuum Part 8: The Corporate Silent Killers

In the human side of things we regularly hear about medical conditions that can result in death yet we can overlook their presence because they are asymptomatic.  The condition is present but unless a series of diagnostic tests are performed the patient never knows the problem exists.

Our organizations are no different. Every corporation has hidden in its processes; there are every day non-value added activities that serve no customer demands.  Which serve no benefit to the…

Headhunting is a Dialect

One side of my family is from Montreal. They are proud French Canadians through and through. Some of my cousins don't speak English.

My old Aunt was a nun. English was her second language. Traveling through France, she quickly found out that the French felt that her French, the Canadian French, was in…

Ready to empower change in your organization? Only if I don't have to resign she said

I recently had the pleasure of talking to the members of the Mobile, AL chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management. Prior to my presentation, during the networking opportunity I walked the room stopping at each table and asking whether they were ready to go back to work and empower change in their organization. At one of the tables I stopped at, I received the response “sure as long as I don’t have to resign.”

We can’t remove the organizational inefficiencies unless we…

A recruitment technology event.

I attended a recruitment conference / technology event in London today. I didn't stay long, just for the first hour or so. The event organisers started the day with a set of "speed pitches" from the various vendors involved in sponsoring / exhibiting at the event. As someone who is involved in both recruiting and implement inbound marketing strategies for technology companies, this would be interesting exercise. 

And it certainly was for a number of reasons but perhaps not for the…

Cerberus and the Keepers of Employment

The three-headed watchdog for the afterlife, Cerberus, guarded the entrance to Hades. The mythical creature ensured no one entered who wasn’t qualified to do so. He assisted the god of the underworld, not the poor souls who passed by. Just the same, recruiters serve as…

1982 Relived

Time travel is possible! How do I know? Because last night, I was transported back to 1982 as I went to see Journey in concert.

Back in 1982, just a freshman in high school at the time, I went to see Journey. They were my favorite band and Steve Perry was my favorite singer. Now, at the time, my…

Does anything good ever come from skipping phone screens?

I've never found that to be a good "call"

I've been hearing from people that they are getting contacted by companies and staffing firms to come right in for an in-person interview without going through an initial phone screen first. These are educated, experienced mid- to senior-level career workers pursuing professional positions.

In my personal experience as a job seeker I never had a worthwhile interview experience with a company that skipped the phone interview. And,…

RPOld School

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…
