In the article (which starts on p.60 of the Guide, by the way) I tell the story of easyJet, a small British airline that used our recruiting software and, more importantly, began thinking about human capital as a resource which can be effectively managed as a supply chain.
In other words, easyJet’s executives started coordinating recruiting and staffing efforts and soon discovered that they could get a lot more high-quality recruiting done with fewer employee hours. Their investment in Bond Talent recruiting software was recouped in about four months, with all other savings now improving the company’s bottom line.
As I write in the article, “companies will compete for the same top talent” as the economy rebounds. “Firms that invest in strategic, streamlined Human Capital Supply Chain management now will be poised to react quickly and snap up the most qualified workforce – and save time and money while they’re at it!”
What else is in the Buyer’s Guide? Lots of other stories and information about; human resources software, recruiting products, social media in HR (a favorite topic of mine), and new technology available for recruiting & staffing professionals. The four-page chart that compares companies and the products they offer is particularly helpful.
I highly recommend checking out the 2011 Human Capital Management Buyer’s Guide. And I highly recommend contacting Bond Talent if you want to know more about how our recruiting software can help your company improve its recruiting and staffing efforts.
