RPO. Friend or foe...?

Nothing seems to sharpen the mind more than a recession and that's particularly true in the recruitment industry. And, perhaps predictably, as things got tighter over the last 18 months or so, the spotlight kept falling on our common bedfellows - Recruitment Process Outsourcing businesses. For the purposes of simplicity, I'm using the term RPO in this post as a collective term to cover all outsourced recruitment arrangements, including managed service providers. I know I'll probably get in… Continue

KPI's are bad for recruitment...

Before joining the recruitment industry wholeheartedly, I, like many others had a pretty rose tinted view of how recruitment worked. It wasn't until it became part of my career did the realisation hit me that far from the focus being on relationships and service, it was instead on sales, closing the deal and hitting KPI's.



Fortunately for me, there are some that believe this to be a waste of time and this has allowed the Courtenay HR business to flourish inside our parent group, where… Continue

Social Media Dementia...

It's a funny old world, recruitment. On the one hand, you have some recruiters talking about social media like it's the second coming. On the other, you have others saying its simply the recruitment equivalent of 'big hair' - a fashion fly by night that has a shorter life than your average cheap firework.



Rarely though, do you find a recruiter that champions social media in one breath, then goes on to snuff out its potential in another. So midly surprised was I, when I picked up the… Continue

Is SEO simply another Y2K? (Or how Shakespeare would have looked a right idiot if he were around today)

A slightly contentious blog this week, but hey, it's all about opinions. This is mine about SEO....



Hands up who remembers the Y2K ‘problem’, or the Millennium bug, as it was sometimes known? I do, as I had several clients who made a lot of money out of placing contractors into the City to ward off the Y2 evil that was set to haunt companies… Continue

Job Post Optimization: What are your Candidates Searching For?

Today, reaching people on the web is all about content. Not only does your content need to be well presented but it has to be relevant to the group you are targeting (and you have to show this relevance in a hurry). The biggest benefit of this content generation though is that it’s shifted the focus of how you acquire customers from having to go out and find customers to having customers find you. This is what is called…

The survival of recruitment, work and the world depends on this face

This is the face captured by photographer Phil Toldano and explained in the excellent Ted talk (embedded below) by game designer Jane McGonigal. It captures the emotion of gaming. Toldano set up a camera in front of gamers while they were playing. McGonigal in the video alerts us to the subtle nuances in this photo:
