Mining for Gold that is already there!!
ATS, HRIS, CRM what do all of these have in common? Answer almost every company has them, but most do not use them right. To that end let the mining or more correctly strip mining begin. How many companies have a candidate database(DB) of some kind, filled with candidates no one ever talks to or if they did it was some time ago. For example a candidate who applied 2 years ago, but did not have enough experience, guess what they might now. The question is what to do about all the hidden gold that exist in your DB. The answer is to create a coordinated data mining operation to clean up, and identify talent within your DB. This can be done by your current staffing professionals or outsourced to a third party for information updating and initial communications. The point is imagine all the hidden or forgotten gold/candidates that are there an d just waiting to be found or refound. So like I said let the mining begin
