Ok so maybe we're not the hacking experts depicted in the photo above, but as recruiters we can definitely use all the recruiting hacks we can find. And this year SourceCon was full of them - lifehacks for everything from finding emails and resumes to better qualifying candidates.
SourceCon Fall 2017 was held at the Rennaissance Hotel in Austin, Texas. If you couldn't make it in person don't worry - we've got you covered!
These days, candidates want more than just a job. They want to work for a company with a good reputation, one that values and rewards its employees, and most importantly, one that offers a healthy work-life balance. So why don’t more companies use this particular carrot to attract employees? Well, they do, and that’s why you should too.
We all know that when it comes to sourcing and hiring candidates, there are quite a few red flags that we should be on the lookout for. But did you know that candidates are also judging you on your performance and habits? Perhaps that superstar candidate that won’t return your calls is doing so for a very specific reason.
While we generally tend to focus on the red flags candidates put up, perhaps it’s time for us to take a closer look at our own habits and behaviours.
There’s no doubt that diversity in the workplace works. Not only is it the right approach to take from a moral standpoint but it helps build a stronger team. So how do we make sure that you’re casting a wide enough net? Is it enough to simply try to include everyone?
Now you’ve heard us wax lyrical about talent pipelines on numerous occasions, but we just realised that we never fully explained exactly what it is that makes them so special. So if you’re still on the fence regarding this incredible recruitment resource or you’d just like a little reminder of how useful they are, here are seven reasons to get out there and build that talent pipeline.
