#RPOA Weekly: Talent Acquisition vs. Recruitment

By Lamees Abourahma Tue, Oct 17,2017 @ AM

One-half of organizations surveyed by SHRM in a 2016 report cited factors such as a low number of applicants (51%), lack of the needed work experience among candidates (50%) and competition from other employers (49%) as reasons for difficulty finding candidates for their open positions.

With challenging recruiting conditions in the current labor market (according to 68% of HR professionals), a more strategic talent acquisition approach is likely to position employers better for the talent war than tactical recruiting activities. Our #RPOA Weekly highlights the difference between strategic vs. tactical talent acquisition and some characteristics of the new talent landscape.

Avoid This Mistake When Handling Negative Reviews on Glassdoor

By Guest Fri, Sep 15,2017 @ AM

Companies are no longer in control of their public image as an employer of choice in the age of internet and social media. Glassdoor, a Yelp-like review site for businesses, has more than 11 million employee reviews for a half million companies, viewed by over 30 million unique visitors each month. These reviews are likely shaping what potential candidates think of each company, and the decision they make when applying or accepting a job. Company reviews can either help or hurt the employer branding and the company’s recruiting efforts. So if you can’t control your company’s online image, what do you do? You should at least manage your online image.
