The Next Big Thing in HR – A Post-Text World Dominated by Voice and Video

Mon, 02/26/2018 - 13:00

Among the buzz about new HR technologies, most miss what may literally become the most important shift — the death of narrative text. Yes, every other business function is already shifting to a post-text communications world that is dominated by video and voice. Of course, it’s no secret that since day one, HR has been providing information to employees and managers almost exclusively through written documents. But that approach needs to change and fast. The world of internet and mobile communications are now dominated by video, pictures, and information provided via an interactive voice. This inevitable shift has been powered by the popularity of YouTube, Alexa/Siri, chatbots, emojis, podcasts, memes, smartphone apps, video games, webcasts, and social media videos and vines. Even the text-laden book is now being supplemented with audiobook options. Each of these increasingly more popular communication modes are capable of providing more powerful and better received information, without the written word.

The Fix to Your Broken Recruiting Funnel? A Different Funnel

Mon, 02/26/2018 - 08:54

It wasn’t so long ago that the concept of a marketing funnel (or consideration funnel) was a bit of a revolution. Injecting more marketing thinking into the world of “post and pray” and sourcing-focused sales, the funnel was a way of looking at our recruiting challenges at a more macro level, enabling big ideas like content marketing, lead-generation, social recruiting, and employer branding to become part of almost everyone’s recruiting strategy.

Referral Programs Work Best If You Stay Alert to Their Downside

Mon, 02/26/2018 - 08:35

From my desk I can see the impact that employee referrals have on hiring: Four members of our 12-person team received some kind of referral for their position.

Fri, 02/23/2018 - 13:00

SourceCon. What in the world is SourceCon? That was the question I asked myself in September 2015 right before my very first SourceCon. I had never been to SourceCon, or Dallas for that matter. I had no idea what to expect. For those of you who know me, you know that I’m not really the shy type, but this time I was nervous. Really nervous! I was there alone. I didn’t know a soul. I only knew twitter handles like GlenCathey, TheReruiterGuy, @SourcingShannon, @imJeremyR.

Fri, 02/23/2018 - 12:00

Fri, 02/23/2018 - 10:38

Back in May 2017, I wrote about an Americans with Disabilities Act lawsuit that the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed against an employer.
