Razz and Harass part 2

On May 11, 2010, in More2Know, by John Sumser
Razz and Harass part 2 Upon reflection, it’s really surprising that Recruiting as a Service (RaaS) hasn’t taken quick root in the culture. A service priced as a subscription, focused on helping the organization achieve specific staffing, retention and attrition targets is good for everyone. Recruiting shifts from a highly variable cost to something controlled […]

Razz and Harass part 1

On May 10, 2010, in More2Know, by John Sumser
Razz and Harass part 1 These days, things change faster than the jargon that describes them. For a couple of decades, it was the other way around. Marketing language evolved faster than reality. It is much cheaper to make a marketing claim that it is to deliver a customer reality. That’s what fueled the acceleration […]
 

Just In Time Candidates

On May 9, 2010, in More2Know, by John Sumser
The best candidate arrives prepared to negotiate from a position of strength. I  wonder why that isn’t the clear objective of all employment sites. A candidate, fully armed with the right facts and details, fully qualified and vetted, is what you want the recruiting team to handle. “I have navigated your qualifications process, chosen my […]
 

Job Boards Are Like Kudzu

On May 7, 2010, in More2Know, by John Sumser
This piece is 11 years old, from the Spring of 1999. In those days, the job boards that were about to die were the giants…Monster & CareerBuilder. Conventional wisdom held that no one really needed a gigantic database; that niche and regional job boards would quickly rep[lace the majors. It didn’t happen like that then. […]
 

Retention II

On May 5, 2010, in More2Know, by John Sumser
Like lemmings, the vendors in our industry have latched on to the concept of retention as an alternative to solid Labor Supply Management. Like most ill considered fads, it’s just plain stupid as a generality. Sure, workplaces should be places that employees find challenging and like to visit. Certainly, equity (both financial and political) is […]
 

Retention

On May 4, 2010, in More2Know, by John Sumser
The temptation to hide incompetence with buzz words extends from business models to HR Strategies. We watch in wonder as lemmings who want a career in marketing try to talk about “modifying the value proposition”. We think this is something they do to avoid the harder work of identifying potential customers. “Modifying the value proposition” […]
