3 Things We’ll See in HR by 2022

HR Hardball

On Friday of last week (10/20), I was a guest on Michael Cameron’s daily radio program “ Win-Win@Work ” and had the opportunity to speak about my favorite topic – building and leading a world-class recruiting team. It’s a wonderful thing when you find yourself leading a team that has hit its collective stride. It’s a magical place, a place where the beer flows like wine, and where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano.

Fool’s Gold – The “Passive” Candidate

HR Hardball

“Passive recruiting” has been a buzzword in the Talent Acquisition world for as long as I’ve been in the industry. Not only is it described as the gold standard of a “strategic” Recruiting team, but “ passive recruiting ” started appearing as a job requirement for positions outside of the Human Resources organization. It’s hip, it’s now, it’s a term with caché, baby. Which begs the question… why? Who Are Those Guys, Anyway?

Herding Cats….and Recruiters

HR Hardball

Remember when you had a recruiting desk to manage? You had your requisitions, you had phone screens scheduled, interviews scheduled, you knew your hiring managers, and you developed a rhythm. Cashing checks and snapping necks. And then they went and promoted you. Now as the manager of other recruiters, you confirm what you probably suspected all along – recruiters are a wacky bunch to manage. It’s a high-energy, high-pressure position, and it can chew you up if you let it get on top of you.

Recruiting “Leftovers”

HR Hardball

Even as kids we all realized something… when you ask “what’s for dinner?” ” and the answer is “ leftovers, ” Mom was out of time, patience, or energy. No matter the reason, dinner was going to be, as they say, “sub-par.” ” Edible? Sure, it’s edible , but so is tree bark. Leftovers just aren’t the same. But guess what? metaphor alert] You just described most corporate recruiting “menus.”

You Know You’re a Manager When….

HR Hardball

I can count many blessings. Among those is the fact that not only do I have a great boss, I have two fantastic managers reporting to me. When you have strong people supporting your efforts, you can sometimes take for granted the fact that development continues for all of us – even those who are already at a pretty advanced level.

TeamWORK or Team-BUILDING?

HR Hardball

My Talent Acquisition team recently participated in a team-building event courtesy of our friends at Strayboots. I can tell you we looked forward to this event for weeks, as the thought of a scavenger hunt through the middle of the Dallas Arts District was (if nothing else) an opportunity for a brief distraction from “business as usual” – the key being that “business as usual” for us at DentalOne = “hair on fire.”

Chop Your Own Wood

Buy, Don’t Rent, Your Next Employee

HR Hardball

Guess what confuses a potential hire more than any other intangible? Despite the courtship, the hospitality, and the grand treatment during the recruiting process, they still don’t know one key nugget of information: “What’s it REALLY like to work here?” ” . The new responsibilities are great, the money is crackalackin ‘, the title suits you just fine, but what happens on Day 1? Day 60? Day 360?

Little Brothers Grow UP

HR Hardball

Work in big corporations long enough and you start to recognize the caste system inherent in the professional community. R&D is indispensable, Manufacturing has to actually make the ideas come to life, and then somebody has to sell it, so Sales becomes critical as well. The “big 3” pillars in a company—discover it, make it, sell it. That leaves a lot of the “rest of us”—the dreaded SG&A. Support functions. Overhead.

“Say My Name”….The Science of Recruiting

HR Hardball

Before the magic of Vince Gilligan forever bastardized the name “Heisenberg,” the actual man was one of the more recognized and respected names in the field of physics, and a flat-out pioneer in quantum mechanics. Check out the big brain on Werner is what I’m saying. Google “Herr Heisenberg” and chances are you’re going to find the “Uncertainty Principle” listed at the top of the page. Dude’s got his own Principle… respect.

Great Resignation? Hardly.

HR Hardball

The universe abhors a vacuum. That has to be the explanation for the constant arrival of catchphrases in our meme-loving society. Surprisingly, I’m not referring to “ Let’s Go Brandon ” – no, I’m specifically speaking about “ The Great Resignation.”

Arrogant Recruiting

HR Hardball

( published on LinkedIn, November 17, 2015). “Did I just hear that?” ” Yup, I did. “ If they really want to work here, they won’t care if the application process takes an hour. ” I had a friend call me recently to act as a sounding board. He is getting increasingly frustrated with his candidate pool, and began to inquire about the possible reasons “why?” ” you want to work WHERE?

The Waiting is The Hardest Part

HR Hardball

How many sources of input does it take to make a decision? In the rapid-paced profession of talent acquisition, the answer is almost certainly “TOO many.” As the pressure to fill seats intensifies, the challenges in clearing that final hurdle continues to pad the cherished “time to fill” metrics valued so much by top brass. CEB just released their annual report on “Top Insights for World’s Leading Executives” and it proves a good (if lengthy) read.
