In this interview, Thad Price, CEO of Talroo, discusses how to optimize your recruiting efforts to attract ideal talent by treating candidates as consumers.
Hi Thad, for those of us who are not familiar with your work, can you please introduce yourself?
Hiring the right talent overseas is not only about identifying top performers but also understanding the constraints in attracting and ultimately retaining talent. This article seeks to show why it is about far more than conventional talent management tools.
There are two approaches to hiring the right talent in your overseas operation. You either recruit it locally or send a proven ex-pat overseas. Easier said than done as even with the best-laid plans large companies can find recruiting talent a difficult process.
There’s a growing trend for companies to do away with mandatory bachelor’s degrees for employees. While higher education is more critical for certain roles (think nursing or engineering) is it necessary to require degrees for roles such as a project manager or salesperson?
The short answer is it depends how you think about it.
Pros of hiring people with college degrees:
HR and DEI people have the opportunity and responsibility to end ageism.
There’s no better way for employers to get direct input about someone than from a reference.
While it might be easy for you to find people who will say nice things about you, you should focus more on those who can speak to your attributes and experiences that would make you right for the job. If it is a global position for instance, or at a company that just went through a merger, you will want to prepare your reference to talk about your experience in those areas.
Here are six more ways I recommend securing the most effective references:
One of the most difficult things about running your own business is knowing when it is time to hire employees and how to do so. If your business has until now been carried out solely by yourself or a pair/group of cofounders, making the jump from “self-employed” to “employer” can feel daunting.
Here is everything that you need to know if you are considering hiring other members of staff for your company for the first time.
Generation Z is the newest generation to enter the workforce.
Ranging in age between 9-24 years old (born between 1997 and 2012), Gen Z is expected to make up a larger percentage of the global workforce than the Boomer generation (24 percent versus 6 percent).
With that in mind, how can employers attract Generation Z candidates to their organization?
When you are a human resource professional or hiring leader, firing right is just as important a part of your job as is hiring right. No one wakes up in the morning looking forward to terminating a staff member’s employment. In fact, people hate it so much they often wait far too long. While firing the right way won’t eliminate all the pain for either party, it will make the conversation much more palatable.
Globally, talent shortages top the list of the most compelling risks that all business organizations are facing. This is particularly true in the healthcare industry, where shortages of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals are affecting a sizable percentage of the world’s population.
Employers discriminate in hiring. This is a fact. It’s been a fact for generations. It’s the main reason anti-discrimination statements show up on job postings. That and it’s the law for Public employers and Government contractors who are required to have these statements. Many private employers use these as well to show they don’t discriminate in hiring.
Every company has outstanding managers. These are the people who lead happy, productive teams, who easily motivate others and inspire innovation. They wear leadership like a comfortable sweater.
If you take a moment, you can probably name a few of these excellent managers in your organization.
And that’s the problem. There are only a few, and they are so rare, you can easily remember their names.
