Top 25 Influencers

HRExaminer Rankings

It's always an honor to be recognized for the work we do - and I'd be lying if I told you that it's not kind of fun (and funny) when we see our names make a list of nearly any kind. But it's humbling when we have the fortune to make a listing with peers and colleagues that we have a tremendous amount of respect for and that is based on the work and influence we own. Well... it is for me,… Continue

Driving Costs Out of the Human Capital Supply Chain - an interview with Dustin Mattison from Logipi

Having helped more than 800 staffing and recruiting firms automate their operations, Tim Giehll, CEO of Bond Talent US, brings an interesting perspective to the subject of continuous process improvement, and he does not believe the days of Six Sigma are over. He does acknowledge that, without the star power of Jack Welch and Larry Bossidy, Six Sigma is no longer grabbing the attention of the media the way it did in its heyday, but says it is still "alive and… Continue

Gaining a Competitive Advantage

By iCIMS Blogger, Karen Bucks

I always start off my morning the same: get up, take out/feed the dog (Penny), get myself together for work, pour my cereal and coffee and grab my copy of Entertainment Weekly…I mean the New York Times. Yesterday was no different. Cereal was in place, newspaper was in line. All I needed was my coffee and I was… Continue

6 year olds, Footy Fixtures and Follow Up!

I've been lucky in my career at times. I've had some good people around me who have been generous and truthful with their advice. Some good, some bad, always thought provoking though.

Some of that advice has been reinforced to be recently. The last 5 weeks or so, I have been helping out around the house, trying to stay out of the way of my lovely wife and our new baby. Wrangling the elder two kids away, and doing jobs around the house that, well, let's face it, I'm not well renowned… Continue

The future of job boards is…

The future is alluring – nothing bad has happened yet, you haven’t made any dumb mistakes yet, and anything could happen. In fact, the future is so much fun to write about that I am going to write about it (with my job board industry goggles on, that is).

LinkedIn Etiquette: Using the Standard Invitation Request? Think Twice.

“I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn.”

Those of you that use LinkedIn frequently know the above quote well. It is the generic, prepopulated language that LinkedIn provides when you initiate an invitation to

connect with someone. For me, it is like

nails on a chalkboard. Or,…

If Google Says I'm the Best Recruiter in the World... It Must Be True

You may have heard this phrase before:

"It's not who you know... but who knows you - and what they say about you."

I believe that statement is very true, but since we live in an increasingly online world, maybe it should be modified to:

"It's not who you know, or what they say about you... it's what Google says about…

Get ready for your recruitment woes! – It is closer than you think.

I have talked a lot about how regardless of our economy we are in a labour shortage – period. With business climbing back and companies looking to hire again (yay) they think – no problem, we’ll just throw an add up online and get lots of great people to choose from. So how is that working for you?

In my estimation there are really 4 waves of hiring and available staff coming out of a bad economy and in to a strengthening one.

Wave #1 is when you can throw your net in the… Continue

Skate To Where the Puck Is Going

As our knowledge and learning about Social Recruiting continues to evolve, it might be tempting to simply try to mimic the success of the emerging case studies. However, these case studies should be used not as turn-by-turn directions but more strategically as the foundation for future success. As Wayne Gretzky famously described his hockey strategy, “I skate to where the puck is going, not where it has been.” For someone described as the best hockey player of all time, despite being…
