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.

I often define HR as “everything people”, therefore the essence of HR has to be strategic. As HR expands beyond its traditional administrative role, that shift provides a significant impact on an organization’s value creation. To properly align HR with the business strategy, the structure must support having the senior HR leader involved in the strategic planning process. 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. In turn, the HR function needs to ensure the human asset is effectively aligned with the business strategy. The focus on business strategy needs to be addressed within every department of HR – Talent Acquisition, Compensation & Benefits, Performance Management, Employee Development & Employee Relations.

The Waiting Game: Your Hiring Process

Posted by Lana Johnson on July 26, 2016

Waiting is the worst, isn’t it? When was the last time you were in a hospital, either because you were sick or you were helping someone else? Things take forever in a hospital. Waiting for tests. Waiting for test results. Waiting to be discharged. How about traveling in the airport? Waiting in line for security. Waiting for your plane to board. Waiting to take off. Waiting to get off the plane ... and that’s all if your flight goes smoothly! Or, how about waiting in line at the DMV?

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. How an employee feels on that first day can make or break the employee/employer relationship and could very well determine the longevity of the new hire.

What is Your Promise? Defining Your Employer Brand

Posted by Tim Oyer, Vice President, Advanced RPO on May 19, 2016

 

“A great brand is a promise, a compact with a customer about quality, reliability, innovation, and even community.”

Stephen B. Shepard

A brand is a promise. When a person thinks of certain top brands there are a few qualities that come to mind.  Take Apple for instance.  When I think of Apple I think of creative, innovative, easy-to-use, intuitive and elegantly designed technology.  When a brand consistently delivers on their promise they are able to build stronger relationships with their customers, relationships that people identify with. A strong brand pulls people in so much so that people begin to identify themselves with the brand identity.  Remember the old ad campaign, “Are you a Mac or a PC?” Those ads were so effective because the team at Apple knew there was a large group of people who defined themselves in some way by the computer they used, which in turn allowed Apple to build a community of fans.

Today, times are different thanks to technology tools, job boards, and social networking sites. You might be able to find candidates, but having a great job isn’t enough to win them over.
