What’s Best for Chains: Centralized or Local Hiring? It Depends

There’s a trend in the marketplace these days to go local. Restaurants and grocery stores are touting locally sourced ingredients while Small Business Saturday (tomorrow, Nov. 25)  offers a local antidote to the mad Christmas shopping rush at the mall.

The Recruiter Name Generator! What’s Your Recruiter Name? @atapglobal

I’ve noticed that certain recruiters have it easier than others. If you have a ‘unique’ name, you know what I’m talking about! You might spend the first two minutes on your conversation trying to get the candidate to say your name correctly! If you leave a message and they call back to your office it’s often hilarious at what name they ask for. It’s…

What’s Wrong With Perfectionism?

During a recent coaching call with a corporate executive, I asked about her planning and organizational skills.

    The 2016 HR Technology Conference & Exposition will be held in Chicago from October 4-7 and I’m excited to return as a member of the 2016 HR Tech Insiders blogger team.

What’s In The Top-Side Of Your Recruiting Funnel?

Marketing is changing talent acquisition forever. It wasn’t long ago that most Talent Acquisition leaders had a conceited belief that candidates wanted to come to work for their great organizations. All they had to do was develop and administer a process for those candidates to be processed, and that was great talent acquisition.  I could argue there are a ton of organizations being led…

What’s in store for HR tech in 2016

Here is my semi-frequent reminder and pointer for blog readers that I also write a monthly column at Human Resource Executive Online called Inside HR Tech and that archives of which can be found here.

What’s The Biggest Challenge HR Faces In 2016?

Is there just one challenge for HR in 2016? I was asked that in a recent interview, which was really a speaker audition. In my mind, right now, there’s a disconnect. It seems like our profession is all over the place. And no one is really reining it into a holistic focus. I spoke to the HR Pros attending the Advanced Employment Issues Symposium in…
