The Trusted Recruiter

In his well-known book, The Trusted Advisor, David Maister explored the paradigm of that very important business relationship, using the professional services paradigm as a basis. His book covered some key components of trust (the trust equation), the process of creating trust (including the most common trust-breaking mistakes and this post includes a good example).



Trust is not a soft or an ambiguous concept – and it should not be. Some years ago I attended a one-week leadership… Continue

Talent Management Merits Your Board's Full Attention

Most boards focus on annual budgets and financial outcomes, often limiting their involvement in talent management to recruiting and hiring a CEO and managing his or her performance. Successful organizations know that's not enough. Talent is typically the largest single line item in an annual financial plan and the chief factor in achieving strategic objectives. Managing your talent is another critical aspect of asset management and merits the full attention of your board.

How can the Australian job market continue its growth?

As the Australian job market continues to outperform by adding 24,500 new jobs in October, instead of the expected 10,000 jobs, Prime Minister Rudd, and the Labor Government have something to celebrate about on their 2-year anniversary.



We expect job growth to continue in the long-term. Project such as Gorgon in Western Australia will continue to increase the number of jobs. According to the ACIL Tasman report, an additional 10,000 direct and indirect jobs are on the horizon,… Continue

Silicon Valley Talent Poaching Highlights

We hear about it in the news every so often out here in Silicon Valley: a big player at Google has left for Facebook. Or a Yahoo executive has been seduced by Microsoft. Or some perky young startup has snatched a head developer from a venerable software giant.



Silicon Valley's human resources arena, ripe with star engineers and executives, is like a day time soap opera, full of unexpected surprises and shocking betrayals. Every time a transfer of talent occurs, juicy questions… Continue

How to attract talent - it's still harder than you think!

Yeah there’s a recession, yeah there’s bags of people on the market but I think creative agencies still need to be working harder to attract top talent.



It’s not enough just to exist and expect the best candidates to come to you - and be grateful for a job - they’re still in high demand so you need to do more.



Here are a few ideas:



Career path:



In my experience, prospects (or lack of) have got to be the number one motivator for a job seeker in… Continue

Should recruiters develop their own assessment tools or outsource the task?



A few days back, we ran a discussion on several social networking platforms to reach out to the recruiting community and asked them if recruiters should develop their own assessment tools or hire the services of assessment specialists. A strong majority shared the same idea – focus on what you do best i.e. understand the client’s needs, pool in candidates, perform pre-screening to generate qualified leads etc. and allow specialists to take care… Continue

Is the US facing a Talent Exodus?

For the last 50+ years the US has been importing the top intellectual minds from developing countries, through offering subsidized education, the promise of full-time employment, and a better standard of living… ie “The American Dream”.



As these Top Immigrant Intellects completed their degrees, masters programs, and PhD’s, US companies snatched them up with lucrative visa policies and wages that provided a very high standard of living, compared to their home countries. Today, many of… Continue

What is Professionalism and how to Judge it?

Professionalism, a term commonly used for managers and has difficult meanings in the dictionary (Don’t even want to go through them). I derived a completely new definition of professionalism based on my experience. Ok, I know, many of you may not agree but this is the best definition to me and helps to keep my selection criteria clear and focused to my organizational goals. Initially I thought of it as “The ACT that makes the body or mind used to an… Continue

Scouting for top talent - picking a winner

Next week Tuesday (November 3) is Melbourne Cup Day. Also known as “The race that stops a nation”, it is also a public holiday for those fortunate enough to live in Melbourne.

As I only moved to Australia seven years ago, after a decade living in New Zealand, it has been… Continue

What Get's YOU Out of Bed In the Morning?

I'm talking about motivation. Do you know what motivates your employees to get out of bed in the morning? With Millennials in the workforce, employers are scrambling to "figure them out." What do they like and dislike? What are their goals? What motivates them? But when you attempt to answer these questions, generalization isn't effective. Each person is unique and it is the understanding of what makes them an individual will will make or break your… Continue

No War for Talent

After attending ERE last week, I'm convinced that there will never be another "war for talent".



Having lived through the first war for talent of the mid to late 90's during the dot.com boom, I can tell you that we were hiring as fast and as furious as possible. Companies were offering 6 month leases on Ferrari's as signing bonuses and the "war" was on. As employers, we literally battled at offer time against one another - upping the ante' until one of us blinked and lost the… Continue
