Companies Need Jobs, Employees and Scheduling – Friday Distraction

HR Bartender

Today’s Time Well Spent from our friends at Kronos reminds me of that old saying, “ Good, Fast, or Cheap – Pick Two ”. The saying represents the idea that we can get quality quickly, but it will cost us. If we want it quickly and inexpensively, then it might not be that good. And to get something good at a low price, it might take some extra time. In this case, we’re applying the concept to staffing the operation. Can we get the right people in the right jobs at the right time?

HR Bartender

One of the things that often happens when you become a supervisor or manager is that you’re invited to participate in the recruiting process.

Regardless of the reason, there are a few things that new managers need to understand about their role in hiring. Tell HR when an employee resigns. And tell them right away.

The Reason Companies Should Calculate Cost Per Hire

HR Bartender

Every once in a while, I run across an article that talks about why organizations shouldn’t calculate cost per hire. Personally, I’m a big fan of the cost per hire metric. I think it provides valuable information. Back in 2012, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) worked with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to create a uniform standard calculation for cost per hire (CPH).

I listened in on a panel discussion during this year’s SHRM Talent Management Conference when I hear a recruiter say, “My job is to fill openings.” And I thought to myself, “Hmm…no.

From a process perspective, organizations hire employees from their talent pipeline.
