The Alignment Between Business Strategy And HR - And The Role of RPO in This Paradigm

Posted by Tim Oyer, Vice President, Advanced RPO on August 18, 2016

This post was originally posted at RPOAssociation.com.

It’s then that HR leader’s responsibility to ensure the entire executive team understands that it is human capital that impacts all areas of an organization.

Day One Readiness: Onboarding for Employee Retention

Posted by Tim Oyer, Vice President, Advanced RPO on July 6, 2016

“People don’t remember what you said or what you did, but they always remember what they felt.”

– Diana Oreck

Finding and starting a new job is often a stressful and emotional experience. It ranks up there with buying a new house or getting married. For many that first day on the job is anxiety ridden and full of uncertainty.
