What’s Your Recruiting Competitive Advantage

HR Bartender

I’ve mentioned a few times recently that the hiring market has shifted to the candidate. And we’re seeing some of the effects with increased time to fill metrics. I ran across this article recently that talks about how more than half of organizations don’t have enough internal candidates to fill their succession plan. Maybe the situation is more than just “mention” worthy. I was on a webinar recently with our friends from HireRight and we asked participants if they had noticed a change in hiring.

4 Ways HR Needs to Think Like Sales

Cornerstone On Demand

Imagine this. Your sales team just landed an introductory meeting with a huge potential client — a client that could easily increase your annual revenue by 25 percent if you land the deal. How do they prepare? The first thing the sales team does is learn everything they can about the potential client. They do research, gathering intel on the client's current performance and looking for insight on their vulnerabilities.

Integrating HR Systems


Written by: May Huffer. At some point in time, many of you, if not all of you, have had to deal with integrating one HR system with another. As much as it would be nice to buy a bottle of gorilla glue for a quick fix, the odds are good that this approach will cost more time and money in the long run, unless it is done properly. Integrating HR systems is not only vital to the success of the platform itself, it’s an essential business requirement beyond just being a technical issue.

How Businesses are Managing the New Reality of Work: A Paycor Survey

We wanted to know how COVID-19 impacted businesses and their workforces. Did they need government funds? How many workers did they layoff or furlough? Are employees working from home now? How’s team morale? And perhaps most importantly, what are their plans for the future?

Knowing the Strategy is Different From Connecting With It

HR Bartender

There’s a big difference between knowing what the strategy is and being able to connect with it. Bottom-line: the difference is engagement. Organizations create strategies all the time. They communicate those strategies on a regular basis. For example, you could read a company’s strategy in the news. That doesn’t mean you’re connected with the strategy. It simply means you’ve read it, comprehended it, or agreed (or perhaps disagreed) with it. Maybe you can even articulate it.

This reader question happens more often than it should. I have a query. I interviewed recently with an investment bank. The interviewer gave me some positive feedback and said he was happy with our conversation. He emailed me later that “I will get another call (from HR) for a second interview with his manager.” I’m trying to call HR – she’s not responding to my calls or emails.

Mission Critical: Leveraging Learning Engineering to Drive Digital Transformation

Speaker: Trish Uhl, Founder of Owl's Ledge LLC and the Talent & Learning Analytics Leadership Forum

Digital is disrupting every part of an organization's value chain at a record pace, creating a critical need to transform operations and employees' ways of working.

Not too long ago, word of job openings spread like wildfire through local neighborhoods and communities — all that separated the foreman and his next hire was a fence. But sourcing and recruiting workers today spins quite a different story.

Build It For the Long Haul – Friday Distraction

HR Bartender

There’s a phrase “for the long haul” meaning long-term or over the course of a long time. The idea is that the “thing” you’re working on should last a long time. Creating something that lasts doesn’t mean it can’t be changed or improved. I think about my first iPhone. It’s changed and gotten better over time. Some of those changes are software and some hardware. But it seems evident that the iPhone wasn’t created to be a short term fad or trend. It’s changed the way we live and do business.

Leaders who curate their message show that they care. What if, as leaders, we were effective curators of our message? What if we coached our employees to be effective curators as well? The origins of the word “curator” are from the Latin word curare meaning “to care.” In this world where there is simply too much information to digest, leaders must find a way to help employees make sense of the barrage of information that inundates them every day.
