No More Silos: How HR Can Take Its Seat at the Table

Oracle HCM - Modern HR in the Cloud

Matt is the executive director of Recruiting Daily and will be speaking in the “Finding People” track at HCM World in March. The reason that the whole “seat at the table” conversation has become so banal is that the goal of actually becoming a business partner for our businesses has largely been limited to a somewhat oxymoronic job title. That is, if they see HR at all. This is largely by design—HR doesn’t sit at a table.

The Nature vs. Nurture of Sourcing


With the deep analytical skills that sourcers possess, we know they are driven to organize and look at each potential lead to find the perfect candidate for their organization. It’s critical thinking at its finest. So of course, being resourceful and masters of critical thinking, with access to unlimited data, plus more and more job reqs to fill, sourcers are expected to find more of the better candidates, faster.

The #1 Reason People Leave A Job Might Surprise You


Gallup found “at least 75 percent of the reasons for voluntary turnover can be influenced by managers.”. Bad managers aren’t uncommon; most people have survived at least one. People spend much of their waking hours at work. Employees who are boxed-in or feel unsupported will stop producing at the same rate, and they may leave entirely.
