#TNL: Recruiting in the Sausage Grinder

#TNL: Recruiting in the Sausage Grinder

I was born and raised on the Northwest side of Chicago. I’m supposed to be an expert in meat in a tube—along with The Cubs, Michael Jordan, and Al Capone—but I chose a different path. I am a Human Resources consultant. I should have picked sausage. So it makes sense that I was asked to host the upcoming #TNL National Recruiting Conference on December 5 in Aurora, Illinois.

Checking In: Recruiting with Location-Based Services

Checking In: Recruiting with Location-Based Services

In recruiting, like real estate, success comes down to three words: “location, location, location.” Considerations like commuting and relocation have always played a critical role in the recruitment process; with the rise of location-based services like Foursquare, recruiters and talent organizations have a new weapon for winning the war for talent. At the upcoming Talent Net Live (#TNL) event in Chicago, I’ll be partnering with Craig Fisher to speak about the use of these location-based social media tools, providing some background and examples of location based best practices and how these emerging technologies can be effectively integrated into the hiring process and your current HR strategies.

Attracting and Retaining Talent Through Choice Management

Posted by:

Attracting and Retaining Talent Through Choice Management

Due to the hierarchical nature of the workplace where an authority figure reigns over others, it is highly likely that status relationships will develop. In other words, someone will have a higher status, creating a subservient role in the relationship. When the grade between authority and non-authority status becomes too high, this can resemble parent-child relationships where the former decides choices for others and the latter has all choices made for them.

12 Ways to Get the Most Bang from Your Conference Buck

At #TNL, like all good conferences, there were so many great tricks of the trade, new social media tactics and recruiting strategies to learn, that advance planning is a prerequisite.

5 Tips for Landing Better Talent With Less Work

I was in Plano, Texas, last Friday, presenting at the Talent Net Live conference. Glad I was, too, because I learned a few things. Like, that the appetite for social tools is monstrous. Sessions on social tools were packed. My closing session not so much… but hey, I’ll get over it. Here are five things I learned at Talent Net Live. None of these things has to do with recruiting, yet every one of them will help you land better talent with less work:

#TNL Spotlight: The True Value of Thought Leadership

#TNL Spotlight: The True Value of Thought Leadership

I’ve been picking my brain about my presentation at the upcoming Talent Net Live event in Dallas, turning around questions about value and, more importantly, values, two of the core precepts that lie at the heart of any successful executive’s vision and strategy.
And thinking about thinking is always an interesting exercise, particularly because thought leadership, one of the topics I’m planning on speaking about at #TNL this Friday, must, by definition, be innovative and original. Which is, I’ll admit, a bit harder than it seems.

10+ Reasons Why Facebook Has Nothing to Fear from Google+

10+ Reasons Why Facebook Has Nothing to Fear from Google+

In 2006, I wrote a blog post entitled, “10 Reasons MySpace is Better than Facebook.” You can imagine the verbal abuse that rained down on me, compliments of the Digerati and devoted Millennials.

Amusingly, I had planned for a follow-up post outlining why Facebook was better than MySpace, but why poop on a hater comment party?

Five years hence, inspiration for a similar article entitled, oh, something like, “10 Reasons Facebook is Better than Google+” seemed too good to pass-up. Such an article, oddly enough, seems a bit reversed. If you listen to the universe of blogging heads, Facebook’s tombstone is already being chiseled out somewhere in Palo Alto.

What Can Cloud Do For The World of Work?

For all the time and resources invested by HR and executive leadership to drive cross-functional collaboration and enterprise alignment among teams, the simple sharing of systems goes a long way into embedding – and automating – the business of doing business across your business.

The ability to seamlessly tie systems and solutions together, the scaling and maximizing of resources and potential cost savings are but a few of the reasons why so many people are so excited about the evolution of cloud computing, a broad concept with even broader business implications.

Is Your Employer Brand A Social Object?

Is Your Employer Brand A Social Object?

How interesting is the job for which your company is hiring? How interesting, for that matter, is your company? Is there a compelling story? On July 26th, 2011, the recruiting community in San Antonio discussed this in a live conversation with Robert Scoble as he kicked off TalentNet Live at Rackspace HQ.
