Are you rejecting candidates who ask about salary upfront? Big mistake.

This scenario has played out many times over the decades and more so recently. You email a candidate or call an applicant and one of the first questions the person asks is, "how much does this role pay?" Recruiters and hiring managers for decades have considered this question a faux pas on the candidate's part. It is not a question someone interested in the role and…See More

I love connecting the right people with the right company (based upon culture, passion, and skills) and I love process improvement.  I believe that Talent Acquisition, Employee Engagement, Employment Brands, & Leadership can be so much more (than it is).  I believe every great company is made up of great people.  Finding great people is hard. Retaining great people is harder.  I believe in challenging the status quo to find better ways of recruiting and retaining talent...based on research, testing, & metrics.

We should be using modern marketing (using direct marketing theory with metrics), copywriting, transparency, Whys (causes), USPs (Unique Selling Propositions), recruiting videos, employee empowerment, tribe building, and much more.
