Posted by Aki Kakko on Jan 17, 2017 11:32:58 PM

As an organization purely focused on improving the recruitment process and making it less reactive, we have been looking for technology partners in the recruitment space. Believe me, it’s hard enough to find partners who even realize there are major problems with the traditional approach to recruiting. It’s even harder to find partners who also have an awesome product to support a proactive hiring process -- one that leverages the power of inbound recruitment marketing and is able to do it in scale across the world.

According to Jim Collins, author of the business bestseller, Good to Great, “leaders of companies that go from good to great start not with ‘where’ but with ‘who.’ They start by getting the right people on the bus, the wrong people off the bus, and the right people in the right seats. And they stick with that discipline - first the people, then the direction - no matter how dire the circumstances.”

Workforce Planning: The Foundation of Proactive Hiring

Posted by Milda Vickute on Dec 20, 2016 11:20:30 AM

Even though workforce planning has been a “hot topic” for more than a decade and is considered one of HR’s main activities, many companies are still closing their eyes to its importance.
