By Brent G Trotter Thu, Mar 23,2017 @ AM

Applicant tracking systems (ATS) can play an integral part in the recruiting process. They can increase efficiency, move qualified candidates through the recruiting process and help companies manage large volumes of applicants. But if the wrong software is being used, it’s managed properly, or implemented poorly, it can do more harm than good.

In this edition of our #AskAnRPOExpert series, we talk to Mike Tastle, Senior Vice President of Accolo, a recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) company based in the U.S. We discuss the role an RPO plays regarding ATS’s, common mistakes clients make when implementing them, and the level an RPO should be involved in managing them.

The Art of Storytelling to Recruit Top Candidates

By Carrie Kolar Thu, Mar 16,2017 @ AM

People respond to stories. According to a 2014 article in the Harvard Business Review, stories actually change our brain chemistry, making us more likely to be empathic and cooperative. The ability of stories to change behavior isn’t new to marketers. They use stories to evoke emotion and incite action in everyone from shoe buyers to corporate executives. Nike has “Corporate Storytellers” on their payroll; the brand story of the Marlboro cowboy increased Marlboro cigarette sales by over 3,000% in the 1950s.

Corporate Culture: Is it possible to outsource?

By Carrie Kolar Fri, Feb 24,2017 @ AM

The body of evidence is growing that companies with a strong culture consistently outperform those without it. According to a Columbia University study, the likelihood of job turnover at an organization with high company culture is a mere 13.9 percent, whereas the probability of job turnover in low company cultures is 48.4 percent. The Department of Economics at the University of Warwick found that happy workers are 12 percent more productive than the average worker, and unhappy workers are 10 percent less productive. 

Culture was once an amorphous term in the business world, and according to Ryan Baca, Vice President of About Talent, a Denver, Co. based talent management company, “it was considered pretty soft and fluffy.” However, academic and industry leaders “are getting a clear understanding of how positive corporate culture really contributes to bottom line results through employee engagement,” says Baca, “there’s a thread that connects corporate culture to employee engagement, to productivity, to customer satisfaction.” In their post, "Statistical case for company culture [infographic]", Growth everywhere makes the compelling case for corporate culture and the "link between employee happiness, productivity, and profit".
