Monster 12 for 2012: Follow These Top HR & Recruiting Bloggers

In compiling the Monster 11 for 2011 list of Top HR and Recruiting bloggers to follow, we fell for the shiny statistics and cool tools which were emerging from the margins to the mainstream, taking a highly analytical and ostensibly objective approach to building our list of recommendations. After all, no one argues with numbers. Which is really too bad. Because as we spent another year listening to, and engaging, with the HR and recruiting social media conversation (and another year of writing posts in the second person), we learned that online, like in war or the workplace, leadership isn’t a matter of consensus.

5 Tips for Getting Hired Over the Holidays

The economic realities of the holiday season, for those of us struggling to make ends meet or to find a job, makes it difficult to be grateful.

We’ll pretty much try and do almost anything it we think it’s going to bring our organizations better talent.

Kids Today: On Generation Z

Whatever happened to Generation Y? Used to be a time when every employer out there couldn’t talk about anything else. They were going to invade our workplaces with their newfangled tools and fancy technologies, and we were rolling out the red carpet, helicopter parents and all.

Talent Communities & Company Culture: HR’s Perfect Storm

There’s a perfect storm brewing in Vegas, and I’m not talking about the weather. It’s supposed to be in the 90s and sunny during this week’s HR Technology and HR Evolution events. Selling that climate (and the sponsored parties, swag, expensed meals, etc.) to decision makers isn’t hard. The real forecast, however, that they should be concerned with is the intersection of talent communities and company workplace culture.

The Evolution of Management: Leadership and the New World of Work

In today’s world of work, this need to manage perception and brand, both personal and professional, has led to a veritable cottage industry of consultants and gurus, training programs and certifications devoted to leadership theory, practice and development. But ultimately, leadership isn’t a product that can be sold; it’s a characteristic that must be earned.

Zero Unemployment & The War for Talent

Posted by:

Zero Unemployment & The War for Talent

There’s nothing better than the feeling of an accepted offer for a recruiter (or for a candidate), one that overwhelmingly and resoundingly answers that question: “Would you consider an opportunity if it was clearly better than the job you have today?” Every job offer is a promise – and the motivations for saying ‘yes,’ conversely, are driven by the desire to have one’s promise fulfilled. That’s why, as recruiters and employers, we’re required to make a compact with candidates that, within our control and knowledge, the job is a promise that can be kept.
