2014: Executive and HR Leadership Focus

A new year. The flip of a few digits on a calendar and somehow that magically allows us to renew ourselves, our goals, and our ambitions (professionally and personally). Some of those goals seem very good and things that everyone should aspire to. But sometimes the object of our focus is just a smaller aspect of a bigger issue that needs to be addressed. Without taking on the bigger…

Planning for the Future: Aligning Technology and Business Growth in Your Staffing Firm

You’ve developed a strategic plan for your staffing or recruiting firm and now you’re seeing significant, positive changes in your business. You’re growing and prospering. And it only makes sense that as your business grows and evolves, the technology you’ve been using is reviewed, evaluated and optimized along the way.

It’s time to change your recruitment ads to be “gender smart”

Many organisations in Australia, particularly listed companies, are focusing on gender equity at board and executive levels. A gender balanced organisation is not just an outcome by achieving gender ratios, as there is also a need for a process to develop a more strategic approach.

Recent research by Roy Morgan Research highlighted specific gender differences for buyers of packaged…

Make an Appointment with your Recruiting Budget

Starting Again with your Recruiting Budget

Take a big step back and think about your recruiting budget. If you started from a blank sheet of paper and only one dollar, how would you use it? Would you keep pursuing the same recruiting strategies you use now or start from scratch? Would your job board spend be the same percentage it was in the past? Would you…

The 2% Difference

I have consistently contended that executives who tolerate “B” and “C” players on their teams give up a lot. Let me now quantify it:

Let’s say you are a CEO with 5 key management team reports, running a $50 million (revenue) company. Let’s say that you project 10% revenue growth next year, but…

What's doing?

What will you be doing today to attract more clients, increase revenues and build your business?

Here are twelve ways to do what has to be done to achieve those goals:

1. Send a letter (not an e-mail, a letter in the post) to three potential clients that would gain value from your expertise.

2. Make the three follow-up telephone calls to the three people you wrote letters to last week.

3. Arrange to speak to a group of people. Some of my clients and… Continue

Talent Acquisition Bubbles Act As Non-Permeable Membranes When It Comes To Diversity of Thought

In a somewhat interesting conversation on ERE, I've observed a trend in response to a Talent Acquisition Director seeking information on how to implement a Sourcing Process into the current mix. Fellow TA Directors seem to be extremely guarded against any non-TA thought processes or insights from 'outside-the-bubble' per se. Being a… Continue

Sourcing 1.0 (Sourcing As Name Generation) Has Begun To Show Its Cracks

Sourcing 1.0 (Sourcing as Name Generation) has begun to show its cracks . . . much like the notion of CRM ("the right message to the right customer at the right time") did in the early 2000s. Frankly, most organizations we speak with that are using a Sourcing 1.0 process are just not seeing desired results. Yeah, they may be a very marginal improvement in COH numbers, but there is a coinciding cost as well. Because… Continue

The Hidden Beauties Of Dysfunctional Recruiting Teams!

The beauty of a dysfunctional team at the Office is . . .

That despite it all, things still find a way to get done. I mean, how many times have we seen a team of buddies that all loved one another, and spent nearly every minute of every day together . . . but couldn't collaborate together to change a lightbulb if they needed to?

Sure, there's probably a happy medium (well, not probably), but before we lower the gavel on dysfunctional teams, let's keep one thing in… Continue

Hertz's Green Strategy: Is There a Marketing Lesson for Talent Acquisition?

Talent Acquisition (HR and/or Internal Recruitment) could probably gleam a thing or two from a new & engaging (at least to me as a marketing-head) Hertz commercial I watched this morning (see video below). I make that statement because Hertz's new commercial is indicative of a marketing strategy that is not only well thought out, but also extremely well integrated. To take a page from a Marketing Guru I learn from each day, Seth… Continue

Sourcing 1.0 - It All Started With A Quest For Names . . . Long, Long Ago In A Galaxy Far, Far Away . . .

And it went a little somethin' like this . . . (this is that part of the story where you look at the attached pop-up picture . . . or go to my original blog where you can possibly make out my sanscript under each 'pictorial representation') . . .

Now, the average layman might look at the above and say, "What if, just what if, some of the better people in the talent pool didn't have names or profiles on the web? . . . or what… Continue
