Hiring success is business success. That’s why we need smarter recruitment.

It’s all about people. It’s as simple as it is true. In our time of accelerating change, a company’s ability to source the right talent, and to do so at scale, will ever more determine its path – whether it leads towards future growth or towards failure.

The pressure is on, no doubt. In the 1950s, a Forbes500 company could expect to operate about 75 years; now it’s lifespan is down to 15. Owning dozens of patents or simply having access to capital and resources no longer cuts it.

How to Build the Very Best Team for a Recruitment Agency Startup

It’s a well-known fact that most recruitment startups are founded by ex-recruiters that have done well for another company and feel that they can now go it alone. It’s an exciting journey, but of course, it’s hard going too. In the first 3 – 6 months, when your adrenalin is flowing, you’ll literally be able to work round the clock! However, before you know it, you quickly find yourself doing at least 10 different roles and wondering what a social life used to look like.

The benefit of the doubt – be kinder to your candidates

Giving someone the benefit of the doubt means that you hold a positive opinion or judgement of a person because there is no reason for you to think otherwise. Here at Weirdly, we strongly believe that recruiters should give people the benefit of the doubt. This means that they can become the people you want them to be. Yet, increasingly, there are more and more examples of people assuming the worst in people and then actively going to look for proof.

Sourcing Military Talent – Basic Training In Recruitment Do’s And Don’ts

Increasingly, organizations are committing to hire veterans, whether because it is the right thing to do, or because veterans are an invaluable source of talent or because, as a government contractor, they must comply with a 6.9% hiring benchmark. Or the effort to hire veterans may stem from a combination of all three of these reasons.

Several researchers have concluded that more than 60% of candidates would not apply for a job in a company that has a bad reputation. Since the financial crisis in 2008, the talent pool has been constantly shrinking. Companies often need to go outside the regular recruitment process in order to attract the best candidates. Recruiters are taking the proven marketing approach when trying to attract top talents. This new trend is also called recruitment marketing.
