Tim Sackett Change Management, Recruiting, Sourcing, Talent Management

Tough times for most recruiters. If you’re lucky, you work for an organization that makes toilet paper, or anything sold at a grocery store, Sam’s Club, or Costco.

Kelly Dingee HR, Selection, Seth Godin, Web/Tech

I’m still a fan of the frebinar and recently listened in on one via Paycor’s Web Summit focused on How to Give Your Candidates An Out of This World Experience presented by Melissa Dern and Melinda Canino. Inevitably during a frebinar there’s a Q&A section, sometimes live, sometimes sort of canned. One of the final questions of the day came …

How to Say Goodbye (Employee Engagement Never Ends)

Kelly Dingee Change, Change Management, Employee Communications, employee experience, Uncategorized

How does your company say goodbye? Is it a formalized program? Left to the manager’s discretion? Do you pass the buck to HR and think all is done with an exit interview? I don’t think visiting HR and having a post employment interview is a good-bye. Not for the employee, to them, it’s process. Many times they’re not tight with HR, haven’t …

What We Need Now In HR: A Better Employment Verification System

Kelly Dingee Kelly Dingee, Recruiting

I guess I’m jaded after all these years–I don’t have a lot of faith in employment verifications or references. Why? They’re supplied by the candidate. Are they really going to supply a bad reference? I don’t think they will. I know I won’t.  I have had one employer in my entire 24-year history of HR-related work that was super pissed …

Recently, I’ve been given the opportunity to train a couple of co-workers on sourcing. Somehow someone heard that I use to do that very thing, and thought it was time for me to pass on the knowledge. Please twist my arm–sourcing is my first love, and the part of my career I have enjoyed so much. It’s so interesting, circling …

Not sourcing. Dear God, did I write that? I did. Sourcing is not the most important part of recruiting a candidate. It’s part of it, yes. But the most important part? No. I find people, sure. But what I’m finding these days is I find people and they think “Yeah, it’s probably time for me to make a move… ” …

I was reminded this past week that recruiting is very hard. No, it’s not hard to post a job on your careers page and wait for a resume, that you won’t screen, and instead, just pass along to the hiring manager—that’s not hard. Recruiting is hard when it comes down to finding talent that really doesn’t want to be found …
