Rich Peterson insists recruiting metrics are important.
The quantity of recruiter activity and quality of hires produced by a recruiting team are important figures to understand. Metrics can be used to judge recruiter performance, gauge the quality of employment brand, and develop effective and cost-efficient recruitment marketing.
However, when is all this data too much? When do you move from a smart strategy of examining the recruitment data generated by your team to an…

Richard N. PETERSON firmly believes….
There is No Truth. Just Perception.
Branding is also a major objective in implementing outreach and recruitment programs.
I am intimately involved in Employer Branding and Employee Value Propositioning.
Rich Peterson always stated that, "Your employer brand is who you are, and how employees inside -- and candidates outside -- view your agency."
If employers act unilaterally to exclude all job applicants who have criminal records from jobs, then Rich Peterson concludes they run the risk of setting themselves up to charges of race discrimination and other allegations.
Employers can’t turn away potential employees simply because of a long-ago conviction that is unrelated to a job for which they are applying. i.e., DWI charges and the candidate is applying to be a store cashier. Employers cannot dismiss candidates based on…Continue

In today world we expect that we need to have everything in abundance, when we hope for this, it is natural that we have to have an elaborate thinking and have to accept things in a positive way, for making this possible we have to have to cultivate abundant mentality within ourselves. A mentality that is confined and limited will take you nowhere but only to a place of frustration, ego and…Continue

If your company is growing, you've likely encountered problems finding the talent you need, especially if that talent is technical in nature. You've also probably spent lots of $$$ on recruiting agencies and maybe even an RPO (Recruitment Process Outsourcing) provider. And you're probably still unhappy with the quality of candidates you've received. If you're ready to take talent acquisition into your own hands, reduce costs and turnover, increase hiring speed and quality of hire, here are…Continue

I was talking with a neighbor the other day who informed me that the basis of the problems facing the nation and businesses was the spouting of Dr.Benjamin Spock. (Sorry you Sci-Fi geeks in the audience thought I meant Spock from the Star Trek series didn’t you!!) My neighbor’s contention was that those children brought up under the influence of Dr Spock have become self-serving individuals with little care for others.
He may have a grain of truth in that some of us raised our…Continue
