The End of the Hunt- When it is Over

I have very fond memories growing up.  I had the best father and mother a child could ask for in parents.  My mother was always there for me.  She had a hot meal ready for our family every night.  We always had everything we wanted, and more than we ever really needed.  Both parents taught me morally what was right and wrong. My father taught me how to be a man and…

Thought Leadership for Lemmings

This industry of ours is fundamentally flawed, and the reason is simple: in a world where the barrier to entry is more or less a pulse, an entire category of “thought leaders” has emerged who, really, aren’t thinking about HR at all. Rather, their primary focus seems to be on creating problems which don't actually exist and making them seem pressing enough to spend money on.  I’ve written extensively on these topics, but I firmly believe that if HR in general,…

Methods for Talent Market Segmentation

Talent Market Segmentation is one of the key first steps in building a Sourcing Engine. You can’t successfully fill your talent acquisition pipeline if you don’t have a targeted outreach and networking approach.

Social Media Experts: Why Organizations Need Them

Summary: Many people are critical of the notion of social media experts, falsely claiming they don’t exist – and by extension implying they aren’t necessary.

This is especially true for companies who have that "cool" office space. 

Even the most mundane building can…
