HR highlights: This week on HRzone (14/05/10)

This week we have seen unprecedented talk of compromise as - 'who'd've thunk it' this time last year - the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats get together. In fact it's almost sickening to watch, but the important thing is that they work together in whatever way they work out best to fix the economy and act in the national interest to dig us…

A New Way for RPO Suppliers to Resolve Their Differences

It is evitable in a competitive environment like Recruitment Process Outsourcing that, from time to time, service providers will feud over accounts and have territorial disputes.

Being interested in world politics, I thought the most recent turn of events in the Middle East could prove to be a model of how to resolve contentious issues between service providers. No, I am not referring to the latest round of indirect talks and shuttle diplomacy brokered by the US between Israel and… Continue

Jobwhizz - Putting the “social” back into recruitment

Re-posted from

Recruiting the best talent has always been a “social” activity – whether it’s using your network to find your next hire or having a face-to-face interview. Today, with the widespread adoption of social networks, both personal and professional, it is becoming easier to both grow and manage your connections. It is also getting easier for you to share information with your connections through a range of…

Have Prospective Candidates at "Hello"

Instead of waiting until your organization meets prospective candidates in person to create a connection, why not use the interconnectedness of the web to build those relationships earlier in the recruiting cycle? By communicating your company value proposition, allowing candidates to connect with employees, and having a quality application process; your organization can create a strong foundation for consistently attracting best-in-class talent.

Phase 1: Employer A vs. B, C…

Where are the Green Jobs?

The Obama administration has promised the creation of millions of green jobs in the next few years. Well, it hasn’t started yet… these jobs are nowhere to be seen. And I know what I’m talking about: I’ve been looking for them for over a year.

I have to tell you I’m not a job seeker. I’m self employed and the creator of The Green Job Bank. That’s why I’m looking for green jobs. There are basically three types of… Continue

The rise and rise of virtual jobs

Remember the quaint old days when it was considered a risky proposition to work from home, given the limitations of technology back in the day?

When I grow up...I don't know what I want to be or do.

I have been thinking lately and I was wondering if people still have dreams of all the things that they wanted to do or be when they grow up? It seems like people just happens to do the things that they encountered or by chance. I still have dreams of writing a novel, being able to buy lots of people gifts (I love shopping!) having a british short hair kitten, having a motorcycle, having a big hobby room, and the list is too long for this blog.

After reviewing the list of my…

Game Theory and Recruiting

I'll never forget the first time I was ever kicked out of a casino.

Several years ago, I was a professional card counting blackjack player, personally mentored by the legendary MIT blackjack team. One of the key concepts they taught me was to NEVER put money on the felt unless you KNOW that you have a HIGH LIKELIHOOD of getting a return. As a result, I consistently had an advantage when I played and never took unnecessary risks or senseless gambles. The science of mathematics and… Continue

Negotiating Better Payment Terms

By Pat Meehan

In an earlier blog we determined the importance of cash flow. Without steady cash flow bills can’t be paid, payrolls can’t be met, and stress infiltrates the operation. Today, cash flow is more critical than ever before. Banks have closed credit lines, SBA is just “not making loans,” and customers are thinking twice before buying any product or service.

This just might be a good time to make some business changes in the area of payment terms for your small… Continue
