Before creating a hiring solution plan, we recommend assessing the aspects of your current hiring solution plan in order to build off potential opportunities.
Developing and implementing a strategic hiring plan is critical to your hiring program’s success. Current program auditing, goal mapping and proper vendor selection are just a few of the key stepping stones to creating a winning plan. With unemployment remaining at record-lows, recruiting is more competitive than ever, forcing companies to become more strategic in soliciting talent. Here’s how to rise ahead of the competition and start achieving your goals:
Does it really matter how you hire? As long as you fill the chair, that’s all that matters – right?
Wrong. Building an innovative talent solution can have a far-reaching impact throughout your organization. Translating that impact to meaningful data and information that you can share with your executives can be powerful.
As the world of talent acquisition continues to turn, digital technology controls its direction.
There are certain trends that middle market companies need to be aware of as they try to find the best and brightest talent. With 40% of global employers reporting talent shortages, a widening skills gap continues to plague recruiting.
In our last blog, we explored the importance of the recruiter/hiring manager relationship. A recent study from Bersin by Deloitte ranked this relationship as the top performance driver for high-impact talent acquisition.
Strong recruiters are a critical component to high-performing talent acquisition. The best recruiters are great at building relationships and solving problems. They are tenacious, resourceful, and highly organized, and they are current with the latest recruitment trends, techniques, tools, and technology.
Every company leader knows that the biggest cost of doing business is most often labor. Employee wages, benefits, payroll, and taxes can comprise up to 70% of a company’s cost structure, and that number is rising as the economy improves.
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?

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.
