Should Recruiters Operate Like Salespeople?
1 dag
Recruitment is really very similar to marketing and sales in terms of workflow. Marketing delivers qualified leads then sales follows up on them. If there are not enough qualified leads, sales complains about marketing. If insufficient leads are converted into sales, sales can (really) only blame themselves, but sometimes they’ll chide marketing for poor lead quality. It is a never-ending game, but the rules are clear. People know their responsibilities, expected activity levels and goals.  ...
It’s Time to Move From Skills Assessment to Proven Skills-Based Recruiting
2 dagen
Evaluating candidates according to their skills and not their CVs is the new consensus. Everyone agrees that skill-based assessments are the best way to guarantee a qualified and skilled candidate that is more likely to have a better retention rate and suitability for the work environment. That will ultimately become a valuable asset for the company. This type of approach guarantees long-term success for both parties– the employer and the employee and results in tremendous time and cost...

Is the Driver Shortage About to Ease as Transport & Logistics Applications Rise? We’ve all seen the headlines proclaiming that Christmas will be ruined yet again this year — but this time not because we’re in the middle of a pandemic. The fate of Christmas 2021 apparently lies in the hands of HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicle) drivers, of which the Road Haulage Association estimates there is a shortage of up to 100,000.  Because of this shortage, supermarkets and retail stores are experiencing...

3 Ways to Master Talent Team Retention
1 week
Job vacancies are higher than they have been in decades, and people are moving jobs at an unprecedented rate. It turns out it’s the tip of the iceberg: in addition to losing good people, businesses are now losing the people responsible for recruiting and hiring people. This includes senior talent-focused roles including Heads of Talent, Employer Brand leaders and CHROs — we’ve seen them turning down roles at tier-one global companies because they are being offered more money and better benefits...
The “High Volume” Lessons for Any Recruiter
1 week
Whether you’re recruiting for 1,000 positions or just for 10, there are some great lessons to be learned from the world of “high volume” hiring that can be applied to a search for any number of candidates. High volume hiring—defined as needing 1,000 hires or receiving more than 1,000 applications per position—is most common in the restaurant, retail, delivery, and manufacturing industries. However, even the “traditional” recruiter, focused on knowledge worker roles, are facing...

Workplace Dialogue: Inclusive, Engaging Conversations
1 week
Have you attended a meeting to discuss a workplace issue on a challenging topic? Perhaps you need to evaluate an employee’s poor performance? Or the company’s inability to give yearly bonuses? Did everyone involved feel empowered to speak up and share their feelings and opinions Unfortunately, the answer to this is usually, yes, you’ve been to these meetings, but no, not everyone felt like they could speak up. Typically these tough conversations arise when one party needs...
How Integrations Work With Compensation Systems
2 weken
How Integrations Work With Compensation Systems Technology is supposed to make our lives simpler, but sometimes it does the opposite. In fact, when tech is confusing and complicates our work, it pretty much defeats its purpose. This is especially true when it comes to things like business technology, HR and compensation. In these areas, simpler is always better and often saves time and money. Making life simple — or simpler — is the point of software integration. This is what happens when you...
The War for Talent
2 weken
“Hence to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.” ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War I was fortunate to work for Nielsen for a few years, and I got to listen to David Kenny, the  CEO, speak several times. He is someone I paid attention to. He’s progressive, he assumed responsibility for diversity as chief diversity officer. He wears loafers and socks with printed pictures, he speaks...
The Unintended Pitfalls of Company-Wide Compensation Transparency
2 weken
There are widely differing opinions and research about the role compensation plays in employee engagement as opposed to non-monetary, intrinsic factors. Many believe the common mantra that “employees don’t leave jobs, they leave managers.” There’s much truth to that, but we know that, for the majority of workers, appropriate compensation is a significant element. Still, many workers aren’t paid equitably or fairly. Pay disparity still impacts women and people of color. The gap lessens a bit...
Where Are the Women in Tech?
2 weken
Why Are Less Than One-Fifth of Cios Female? At the start of last year, when reports of the lockdown impacting working women harder than men were at their peak, I couldn’t help but ask myself, “Are we really making moves towards gender equity in tech?” For all our talk about gender equality as a sector, I wondered, had it made a difference? One day I decided to discuss it with my team and, as it happens, we all had the same questions: Are we seeing enough women in tech? Do women progress, on...

LinkedIn: Five Tips to Make Your Posts Shine
4 weken
We’ve all seen the posts on LinkedIn that make us cringe a little. It could have been a motivational story that didn’t quite motivate or a post that felt like it was made in a marketing lab. You probably shrugged it off and continued scrolling, but if you see enough of these from someone or from people at the same company, it likely impacted how you view where they work. You’re not alone — job seekers are noticing too. A CareerArc study showed that 55% of job seekers find social and...
