Referral Link: The Sourcing Efficiency Tool

By: Doug Hay Friday April 4, 2014 comments

As a recruiter you are always sourcing- looking for qualified candidates for open positions and for those positions that come open frequently. This task can be time consuming - one recruiter I spoke with called it a "time sucker".  Yet it is an integral part of finding the best candidate for the job. Sourcing is also a barrier to meeting the always important "time to fill "metric. In an effort to be meet or exceed your "time to fill" metric and be as quick and efficient as possible, your sourcing efforts are often focused on a group of... Read More

Can I Refer My Co-worker?

By: Jerry Thurber Friday March 28, 2014 comments Tags: Employee Referrals

I think the guy I go to lunch with everyday really would be great as a business analyst in the IT department but I don't think anyone over there takes it seriously when he applies for a job. I want to formally refer him next time they have an opening. We've been having an interesting dialog with some of our customers about whether or not they would include current employees in their referral programs. Our application, Referral Link , automatically searches an employee's network and prompts them about potential candidates they could refer.... Read More

Big Data Should Be a Big Deal For Recruiters

After the movie Mo ne yball came out there were lots of blog posts about how Moneyball had lessons for HR. Essentially this was a Big Data argument. The essence of what the Moneyball process was all about was taking vast amounts of information about your people and your potential recruits and applying data analytics to see that information from new angles. The new angles allowed them to see productivity and efficiency differently than conventional wisdom had always said it should be viewed.   Take out the subject "Moneyball" and... Read More

Bring Home the Recruiting Gold For Your Team

By: Doug Hay Wednesday February 19, 2014 comments

Bob Costas is a hero of mine.  I love baseball and Bob is all about baseball history so his infected eye that has kept him from continuing his Ripkenesque streak of hosting the Olympics, has me a bit bummed.  But I have still watched my share of the Sochi games the last few weeks. I am always amazed at the way in which athletes from smaller, less well subsidized countries find a way to compete against the superpowers.  Malta, the Cayman Islands and the Philippines all have athletes in the Winter Games! I'd love to be able to see what... Read More
