4 Follow- up email templates every recruiter should have handy: One of the quickest and easiest ways to improve your candidate experience is to maintain regular, transparent communication with all of your candidates.

The simple phrase LinkedIn’s head of recruiting uses to grab candidates: As a recruiter, you've likely had the experience of having a candidate “go dark.” Maybe they didn’t call you back or they failed to send something they promised to send. Understandably, this made you concerned. Did this mean they weren’t serious about the job? Did they lose interest? Or did something personal come up? …Read More…

The best technical interview of all time for non- techies: Last week, I was talking with a senior technical director who handles major defense contracts for advanced weapon systems. He lamented that he could not find enough top hardware and software engineers because the recruiters he is using are not strong enough to assess technical skills. …. .Read More…..

4 reasons why you shouldn’t Ignore your Linked in background image: The director of the career center for which I work recently sat in on one of my LinkedIn workshops in which I talked about how to use your whole LinkedIn profile to brand yourself. I thought I did well, and afterward I asked the director for her thoughts.She was happy with my performance, but she said I forgot one thing. I never mentioned how your LinkedInbackground image — the picture which sits behind your headshot — could be used as a branding opportunity. I should have known this, but it honestly didn’t occur to me until she mentioned it. Boy, did I feel like an idiot. …Read More…

Why Walmart expanded parental leave- and how to convince your company to do the same: Walmart will soon offer better parental leave than most U.S. companies. The new policy for biological parents, announced in January, will go into effect on March 1, according to a company spokesperson. The company already has rolled out a more generous policy for adoptive parents. …Read More…

How tech is transforming HR:    Three years ago HBR published a feature titled, “Why We Love to Hate HR…and What HR Can Do About It.” In it, Wharton’s Peter Cappelli argued that the current business environment, in which talent is an ever-scarcer resource, presents an enormous opportunity to change the common view of HR as little more than the enforcer of often-tiresome rules and regulations. ….Read More…

 Wearable technology is more than just a fashion statement: Bobbies are known for protecting the streets of London and their classic uniforms are about to get an upgrade. Thanks to a deal with BT, the officers will soon wear some of the hottest tech on the market: body cams that can record vital scenes in as the police go about fighting crime. While police forces across the United States widely use body cameras, the Metropolitan Police rollout is due to be among biggest in the world, with 22,000 cameras expected to be issued to officers …Read More…

HR’s Role in employee career pathing:  Think about the company for which you work. Can you envision your future with this organization? What might it look like? These simple questions make up a talent management strategy called career pathing, and it's something Irena Djordjevic-Behery knows a lot about. She's the Vice President of Talent Management for United Way Worldwide. "You have to really get creative in terms of what does [career pathing] actually look like," Djordjevic-Behery said. "We have a generational shift in the work place. I think painting a picture of what a career might look like… for however the time frame… it's important to have that vision."

 Thought leaders and experts: They have good insights, but not all of the answers: No one denies the fact that our world needs experts,thought leaders, and world-renowned specialists. That’s because it’s clear that we DO need people who are capable of dedicating their entire time and efforts to gaining as much experience as possible for one important thing — so they can teach and help others. There are experts in every field known to humankind, and here in the Internet Age, we make great use of the expertise of these people. However, there is a huge “but” connected to that.  …Read More..

The key to success? It’s getting the hiring manager to really trust their recruiters: You’ve spent years in therapy attempting to identify yourself, yet you think you can know me in 30 minutes? That my entire being, my soul, passions, knowledge, abilities, and creativity, can be assessed by you and your stone-faced, unpassionate behavioral questions – because you’ve been given the working title of “Recruiter?”

The dystopian Myers-Briggs test questions that I have to answer are pedantic questions from you, and standard answers cannot just be explained. Life, like work, is not always black and white. …Read More

Cybersecurity consciousness for human capital management: The more the access points are there for a device, the more is the vulnerability potential. It’s shocking how 71% of cyberattacks around the world are targeted on small and mid-sized companies because of the low allocation of the budgets for cyber protection. Human capital management is heavily dependent on software, tools, and platforms to access documents, give feedback, recruit candidates, and other such activities. To say the least, the entire spectrum of a chief human resources officer responsibilities like compensation and benefits, talent acquisition, employee engagement, talent retention, performance analysis, feedback, succession planning, and employee experience- fall within the ambit of cybersecurity consciousness.  …Read More…

A CEO 10 directors and mop!:   Does that sound like the hierarchy in your organization? I hope not- because it certainly is the case with a few. Organizations today have parted ways with the never ending hierarchical structure of executives climbing the ladder to reach the top.  Most millennial companies boast of having a flat structure, open door policy and have done away with traditional job titles for good.  They have instead reinvented new names like CFO- Chief Fun Officer, Innovation Guru and Chief Geek.  ….Read More…

If you’re an agency recruiter or hiring company, stop by and visit RecruitAlliance.

The good and the bad about hiring an overqualified candidate: Over the years of reading countless LinkedIn posts, which normally make no sense, there are always a few that group together and stand out. The group usually starts with a recruiter complaining that they gave a Hiring Manager the resume of someone that was “fully” but really an overqualified candidate for the job, and they can’t even begin to comprehend why the  …Read More…

 3 Hot technologies that will disrupt recruiting in 2018: It’s that time of year again when we dust off our crystal ball and try to gaze into the future of recruiting. So after making my standard resolution to lose that 15 pounds in the New Year, I’ve given the stars another gander to see what the future of recruiting will hold. …Read More…

How you promote people can make or break a company’s culture: Managing promotions effectively is one of the most powerful ways leaders can drive their company’s success. We surveyed over 400,000 U.S. workers in the past year and found that when people believe promotions are managed effectively, they’re more than twice as likely to give extra effort at work and to plan a long-term future with their company. They are also five times as likely to believe leaders act with integrity …Read More…

How to hire: I really dislike the term “A player.” It implies a grading system that can determine who will be best for a position. HR people always ask how Netflix, where I served as chief talent officer from 1998 to 2012, managed to hire only A players. I say, “There’s an island populated exclusively by A players, but only some of us know where it is.” …Read More…

Scalable Recruitment: Meet Headcount Requirements Starting NOW

Your talent acquisition department has just been tasked with hiring 350 employees to staff a new location for your growing company. Your internal recruitment staff is already struggling to reach their performance metrics, and their requisition count continues to increase on a weekly basis. Staff morale is quickly plummeting, because the team feels they are on a 'mission impossible'. As a Human Resources (HR) or Talent Acquisition (TA) leader, how do win this challenge?

You've looked in to hiring a Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) company, but you're weary of handing over such a large project to an outside vendor. What if the RPO doesn't deliver? How will you explain to the executive leadership and the Board of Directors that you can't reach the headcount goals? You know that your internal recruiting team will scramble to attract and recruit candidates to fill the open requisitions, but will quality be sacrificed? This vicious cycle gets worse, and is perpetuated in the retention issues you'll have down the road.

Are you ready to find a solution that provides your company with a flexible, cost-effective option to put you in control of scalable recruitment?

Leveraging a Vendor Management System is the smartest way to accomplish your staffing goals, quickly and efficiently. Here are just some of the benefits of using a VMS:
  • Simple registration process.  Upon account activation, your internal recruiters can post jobs on the platform, and begin receiving candidates to review.

  • An easy way to work with your current recruiting and staffing vendors, or accept candidates from other members of the network.  Competition ensures recruiters submit only the best candidates, with urgency.

  • You control the terms of the relationship.  You stipulate the fee you'll pay upon hire.  You identify the guarantee period for the candidate.

  • Risk is mitigated.  Vendor Management Systems ensure you OFCCP compliant, and tracks all Vendor activity for reporting purposes.
  • Receive more understanding of Recruitment Partner performance through enhanced data and analytics.  See who's performing, and who your 'go-to' agencies are.

  • Enhance your diversity partnerships.  Some VMS's, like RecruitAlliance, enable employers to see which partners are certified Diversity entities.

  • Receive candidates for International job openings.  Make sure the Vendor Management System you use has the ability to handle a global talent pool, and assist you in filling those roles.

  • Scalable recruitment, without handing over the process to an RPO.  You remain in control of the hiring process.  Your internal recruiters view candidates and move them through the process, just as they normally would.  Pay the fee you set, only upon hire.

  • Centralized vendor payment system.  No more setting up multiple Vendors with Accounts Payable, or going through multiple credit checks with a variety of agencies.

  • Post unlimited jobs on the platform, and make unlimited hires.  Have recruiting support, on-demand.  Gain the flexibility to scale as needed.  There is no cost to use a VMS, like RecruitAlliance.  They only take a small portion of the fee paid to the Vendor.

If you're internal recruiting team cannot meet its hiring objectives, it's time to implement a viable solution that will save your organization time, money, mitigate risk, and improve your recruiting process.  Vendor Management Systems have been helping employers solve hiring problems, effectively and efficiently.  To learn more about a VMS you can implement today, click here.

Look after your top talent- they’re looking to leave: According to a recent Gallup poll, the odds that your employees will jump ship are growing.

How to use facebook ads to recruit your industry’s brightest minds: Most of the time, they are not wrong. That is why many people work multiple jobs to try to make ends meet. Worse still, the number of people looking for jobs -- some of them with really good skill sets -- far outnumber the number of job positions available.

In a 2014 survey, 55% of executives said a major constraint to investing in training was that they did not know how to measure success. Almost half (49%) said that it was difficult to ensure a return on investment (ROI). And in another survey, 87% said they cannot calculate quantifiable returns on their learning investments. In short, companies have little idea. …Read More…
