By Steven Dashiell Thu, Sep 07,2017 @ AM

Do you know who among your staff is prime leadership material?

Our Brain: Does it Help or Hinder When it Comes to Hiring?

By Steven Dashiell Thu, Aug 03,2017 @ AM

Our brains (one of the most complex and magnificent organs in the human body) have more to do with who we select for our next position – and why we select them – than we realize. The brain is a complex mechanism, one that directs and influences our actions even when we aren’t necessarily aware of that fact. This unaware influence on our decision-making processes is called implicit bias, explained Kim E. Ruyle, renowned speaker, published author, and president of Inventive Talent Consulting.

#RPOAWeekly: Finding Potential Talent

By Lamees Abourahma Tue, Aug 01,2017 @ AM

Many or most managers are incapable of distinguishing between performance and potential when it comes to hiring talent. Predictions about future success are abysmal. False positives are common. Could unconscious bias rooted in our brain be standing in the way of making the best hiring decisions? What are the best predictors of leadership and learning agility?

We’ve recently spoken with renowned speaker and published author, Kim E. Ruyle, about the topic. Kim reviewed research and provided a framework to accurately identify high potential talent, accelerate their development, and retain these critical employees.

Besides potential talent, our #RPOAWeekly covers workplace culture and the equilibrium between technology and human interactions in recruiting.

Thirteen of these awards, received while Hueman was still a division of PPR Talent Management Group, were received consecutively – the only company to achieve such accomplishments.
