Sprinter vs. Marathoner; Who do we choose for our teams?

Samuel Kamau Wanjiru from Kenya broke the Olympic record during 2008

Summer Olympics with a 2hr 6 min run of the 26 miles while at the same

time Usain Bolt from Jamaica broke both 100m and 200m sprints with 9.69s

and 19.30s. Both Usain and Samuel are phenomenal athletes of their

generation and are revered in their own runs. However, can Usain be

Usain a run for his money in short distance runs?… Continue

Optimizing Efficiency with HR Strategy

We all reiterate to ourselves the importance of optimizing our job efficiency; but it’s always a lot easier said than done. Such a vague demand on ourselves often falls outside of our work comfort zone. Why is that?

The Problem with Getting Champagne-Quality Talent on a Beer Budget

champagne As recruiters in a sluggish economy, I’m sure there are plenty of stories out there about how companies are looking to obtain top talent at bargain prices. Kind of like having “champagne tastes” while only wanting to pay for a beer.

As a recruiter that has been through many different markets, I know the downside of this type of hiring practice. In most… Continue
