Over the past 6 months, my organization has been in the midst of transitioning to the Oracle HCM suite. The decision to go to an HCM system was largely based on our disjointed and highly antiquated HR systems, which led to mountains of manual processes. In the name of consistency, employee engagement & transparency, regulatory compliance, and centralized data warehousing, …

Candidate Email Automation Disasters: Thanks, But No Thanks

Katrina Kibben ATS, candidate experience, Communication, Recruiting

Know what makes our industry look bad? Most candidate email automation, but especially saying “thanks, but no thanks” as an automatic reply to a job. We know candidates are putting it all on the line. I mean, no one wakes up and decides to quit their corporate jobs with great benefits and bonuses.  It takes vulnerability. Risk. That “change” thing we all …

Imagine a company that puts its needs before that of their customers. Consider what the shelf life of that organization would be. Picture, if you can, the number of good things that would be said about that organization. Zero – the answer is zero. That’s because no one would choose to work with a company that doesn’t put their users …

What is the best day to post your job?

Tim Sackett Always Be Closing, ATS, Candidate Pool, Uncategorized

It’s a blocking and tackling-type of a question in talent acquisition and recruiting, right? Most of us believe it’s part science and part art. “Well, Tim, that all depends on…” No, it doesn’t. It depends on data and the Appcast data from their 2019 Recruitment Media Benchmark Report says this: Yep, it turns out Monday is the day. Then on …

Katrina Kibben ATS, candidate experience, Candidate Pool, Uncategorized

I’m all for efficiency. Check out any of those online personality assessments that are supposed to help you sell to me. I like direct communication. Let’s get shit done.  I’m the same way when I go to the grocery store. I organize my list in the order of the rows. I don’t like to wander aisles at all.  Speed is …

Bad Reputation: A Rant on Applicant Tracking Systems + How To Be A Better Buyer

Katrina Kibben ATS, HR, HR Tech, HR Technology, HR Vendors, Online Applications, Talent Acquisition, Web/Tech

I’ve been traveling more than usual over the last few weeks, which inevitably means I have to leave the comfort of my favorite airline (Southwest) for more favorable flight times or prices. After one particularly long travel sprint, I ended up on Frontier. Frontier is one of those airlines that promotes the super cheap flights– the “$10 to Vegas” kind …

Ben Martinez ATS, Coaching, Email, HR Tech, Metrics, Recruiting, Social Media and Talent, Sourcing, Talent Acquisition, Working With Recruiters

Complaining will do nothing but make your “time to fill” metric exceed the 58-63 day period that is currently the industry average to fill a requisition. I have sat through or led enough recruiting pipeline report meetings to learn when a recruiter is “getting after it” and when they are just making excuses. Here are a few things to watch …

If you didn’t see it, Jack Ma, the co-founder, and billionaire behind Alibaba, was out promoting his own work schedule that’s been dubbed “996”! Basically, Jack works 9 am to 9 pm, six days per week, and sees absolutely nothing wrong with it.  The internet lost its mind. And by ‘internet’ I mean mostly soft, not so hard working folks …

Remember that time someone threw an incredible party. A party people talked about for months. It was THE event that included people you knew, people you wanted to know, and that one special person you had a crush on for years. Of course you remember that party. Why? Because you weren’t invited. Later you find out you actually were invited, …
