How Measurement is the Key to Recruiting Success

By Carrie Kolar Thu, Nov 26,2015 @ AM

In recruiting and hiring, a lot depends on putting your time and money where they’ll do the most good. A high return on investment is considered a success; a small return on the resources invested means that you need to rethink where you apply them. To find out how successful any program, strategy, or business function is, you need to measure the return. Measurement is the key to success, as it shows what works and what doesn’t and allows you to craft your strategies and approach to get the most out of what you put in. In this week’s RPOA Roundup, we take a look at how measurement is the key to recruiting success.

New Trend in Recruiting: Project RPO

By Carrie Kolar Fri, Oct 16,2015 @ AM

The on-demand economy is thriving, and more on-demand businesses are popping up every day. Business like Uber and StyleBee and apps like OrderUp are changing the fabric of the economy, as businesses and consumers increasingly expect and demand to receive products and services on their own schedules. On-demand businesses have been mostly business to consumer instead of business to business, but the on-demand trend is slowly but surely penetrating the B2B markets. A recent Recruitment Process Outsourcing webinar entitled “Project RPO: Testing the Water with Project-Based RPO” explores how RPO can be adapted to an on-demand model, and how this on-demand or “project RPO” can benefit client organizations. In the webinar Ray Rika, the president and CEO of Accolo, provides his insight into the efficient and effective new trend in recruiting: Project RPO.

7 Best Recruiting Strategies for Hiring Success

By Carrie Kolar Wed, Feb 11,2015 @ AM

There is no doubt the U.S. labor market in 2015 will be highly competitive.

As demand for top talent increases and the pool of qualified candidates shrinks, hiring and recruiting in 2015 will be rather challenging. Last year, there were 46% newly created position with 800,000 of them being high-tech jobs. On the other hand, labor force participation by the end of 2014 – workers currently employed or who are actively looking for work – was the lowest since 1978. Candidates are in the driver’s seat feeling more comfortable leaving their current job and rejecting offers, making it harder to recruit and retain.

How do you recruit and hire in such a challenging labor market environment? John Younger, CEO of Accolo, a recruitment process outsourcing company, lays down a roadmap for recruiting success in a recent webinar titled, "a recruiter's roadmap to hiring success." Younger offers the follow seven recruiting strategies for hiring success.

By Janine Lucas Thu, Nov 20,2014 @ AM

According O’Toole, Virginia Commonwealth University Professor of Economics, “Conditions in the labor market have improved in the first 10 months of 2014. In the first 9 months of 2014, private payroll employment improved by an average of 220,000 per month, up from 190,000 jobs per month in the same period in 2012 and 2013”. This created a more competitive environment for the labor market and allowed employees to have more confidence in jumping from job to another, creating recruiting challenges for employers.
