If you’re like most recruiters, you’re always looking for ways to stay ahead of the curve and find the best talent out there. With a new generation entering the workforce every few years, it’s important for recruiters to keep up with what’s important to the latest generation of candidates, and...
Do you run an effective recruitment program? You might think you do, but how can you be totally sure? Like any other facet of business, recruitment efforts can be deemed a success (or failure) by using a wide variety of quantifiable metrics. It is in the best interest of organizations...
There’s no question that goal setting is important for any team and organization, and this includes recruitment teams. By definition, SMART goals are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound. In other words, they provide a clear roadmap for success.  For recruitment teams, smart goals can help ensure that the hiring...
Rejecting candidates is difficult for even veteran recruiters. Finding the right words to convey that they didn’t make it without coming off as rude or robotic is a real challenge — as is finding the right method. If done wrong, your company’s reputation will suffer. Executed correctly, more top talent...
The art of the job listing is a delicate balance. You want to make sure a candidate has enough background information to understand what they’ll be doing, but you don’t want to ramble. A good job listing should catch the eye and create a sense of excitement. Including a salary...
Artificial intelligence is quickly improving — and AI recruiting has become a popular strategy. This has led some recruiters to wonder if AI is destined to take their jobs. But is it really?  Well, the short answer is…no! Artificial intelligence is still a long way away from actually relieving human...
The past few years have seen artificial intelligence (AI) dominating the recruiting industry. Revolutionary new products are constantly being developed and pushed out — everyone is competing for the top spot. This has resulted in constantly shifting products and AI trends.  The recruiting software of today and the way it’s...
After a candidate becomes an employee, an HR team’s job has just begun. Sure, your company has gained a new addition to the team, but to welcome that new hire, a member of your community takes effort. Welcoming, educating, and integrating them can happen in one of many ways. As...
Interviewing candidates can be a volatile process. Creating a level of interview consistency, while avoiding alienating your potential employees is the goal of every hiring manager. Achieving this goal traditionally, however, is a balancing act that most recruiters would rather avoid.  Thus, alternative solutions were created to allow recruiters and...
Commitment, loyalty, and connection to the company. These three concepts joined together to form the concept of employee engagement. Keeping your employees engaged and satisfied is the key to high productivity and a stellar retention rate. People who are engaged with workplace culture and the success of your business tend...
Traditional, unstructured hiring is risky. While conversations with the candidate might flow more naturally, the results the method produces are shaky at best. Not knowing exactly what makes a perfect fit means a new hire that may not be fit for the role — and that can be trouble.  Bad...
Having a diverse workplace is a necessity of the modern age. Diversity in the workplace brings material advantages, as a range of backgrounds and mindsets can provide a variety of prospective solutions — but it does more for an employer than that.  The younger generations in the workforce prioritize diversity,...
The recruitment industry is shifting faster than many of us expected. Slow, traditional recruitment puts you at risk of missing the mark.  Speed and efficiency are both becoming necessities in order to snag top talent—and avoid bad hires. Automation has become the recognized solution, with companies like Amazon, Google, and...
Hiring is a process that takes no prisoners — sometimes literally. Those with criminal records are more likely to be unemployed than nearly any other major group, with multiple studies finding unemployment rates around 30-40% greater than those without a record. When nearly a third of Americans have been arrested...
For many young workers, the American dream seems like just that — a dream. Workers are losing faith in the system and in their employers, but the truth is that there is still plenty of opportunities out there. People simply need to see this success for themselves. Hearing from previous...
Human resources isn’t a group of fortune tellers, but they might be the next best thing. Before your company finds itself in dire need of specific skills, HR will have prepared a recruitment solution. This, however, is no magical feat, nor a walk in the park. Identifying and addressing hiring...
Recruiting talent has always been a struggle. Too many hiring teams are understaffed, overworked, and lack the time for complicated sourcing tools. Add in the competitive hiring landscape and talent teams not only want – but need – better solutions to manage applicant targeting, budget optimization, candidate qualification, and candidate...
Recruiting can be a really disjointed process. Working with a team allows the burden of hiring to be shared evenly, and allows for a diverse approach — but it can also result in some issues.  Team members’ differing visions/expectations for the hiring process can cause communication issues, arguments, and performance...
Over the course of the last decade, artificial intelligence has been growing and evolving. Since the mid-2010s, corporate titans like Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk hinted at the continual rise of AI in nearly every field of industry. The flexibility of self-learning software promised the automation of tasks normally too...
This year has been a tough one for HR teams across the country. Workers are leaving their jobs in droves, costs of labor and recruitment are rising, and candidates are becoming more selective when choosing a new job.  Overcoming the challenges that these new industrial norms introduce is the difference...
Workplaces are diversifying quickly—and for good reason. Ensuring that your business is a safe space is good not just for the employees, but the business as a whole. An environment of respect and inclusion radiates outwards, taking the form of glowing recommendations by your workers and unparalleled productivity  A Diversity,...
The Great Resignation feels like it should’ve ended by now — but people are still quitting in droves. From the employee side, flexibility, benefits, and potential for growth are still top priorities. Younger generations are more than willing to leave for greener pastures if things are better for them.  With...
With remote work being as prevalent as it is, the recruiting process has been forced to go through some changes. Communication and cohesion within HR departments can falter much more easily when out of the office, but these are essential elements of any successful recruiting process. If too many communication...

Artificial intelligence is changing the recruiting landscape — but automation comes with risks. Making sure you implement AI software ethically, and ensuring that it operates respectfully is an ongoing process, which is essential to reaping the many benefits AI can provide to the recruitment process.  Organizations that properly utilize AI...
It’s easy to get caught up in the race to acquire the best talent for your organization, but retaining top talent once they’re on board is arguably more important. Not only does higher retention prevent a backlogged recruiting process, but it also means savings for your organization. While there are...
Virtual recruiting methods have taken over the industry over the last few years. As our workforce begins to truly pass into the hands of the younger generations, social recruiting becomes more and more common. Candidates are online like never before, and recruiters have answered the call by increasing their social...
There’s no feeling quite like finding a unicorn candidate. For many HR team members, finding the perfect candidate for an open position seems like a dream. There are too many open jobs and too few candidates that fit the bill.  While it can seem like a fantasy, hiring an employee...
For industries in nearly every market, the balance of power between candidate and recruiter is changing. Applicants have more power now than they ever have, and as a result, many don’t reply to employers who reach out.  Any seasoned HR veteran could tell you that a certain amount of no-shows...
Onboarding is an essential part of employee initiation. Without it, new workers will have trouble becoming acclimated to both work and the company culture.
