What is the difference between Recruiting and Sourcing?

I get asked a lot about what’s really the difference between Recruiting and Sourcing? Or, where does Sourcing end and Recruiting begin? Or something similar to these questions. The answer is it doesn’t matter. The organization has a need for talent. The organization has to find or grow talent. You and others in the organization need to figure this out. So, figure it out!

What’s the Difference between Great Recruitment Marketing and Bad RM?

Smashfly released their annual 2019 Recruitment Marketing Benchmarks Report this week and there are some real takeaways that I think help TA teams become better right away tactically at RM.  In the middle of the report on pages 11-13 the report shows what great TA teams are doing differently than those who are failing at RM.

What a Difference a Workspace Can Make

When it comes to attracting new employees and retaining our top talent, we tend to roll out the red carpet in terms of pay and benefits. But what about the office itself?

How AI Made a Difference for this Company’s Recruiting

Applying for jobs can be difficult, to say the least. Candidates have waited weeks just to be notified if they got the job. Those are actually the lucky few who receive any response at all.

What’s the difference between Recruiting and Sourcing?

I’m on the road this week at SHRM National and at The Sourcing Summit UK. Two very different groups. The SHRMies will be more traditional HR and Recruiter types that wear a lot of hats.

SpamBrands: Is there really any difference between Employment Brands?

I have a belief that 9 out of 10 employment brands are exactly the same. Meaning, if you were to really go out and ask candidates to give you specific differences between employment brands, they wouldn’t be able to tell brands apart. EB #1 only hires the best talent, treats their employees with dignity and respect, values diversity, has a fun work environment, and…
