The Yelpification of Recruiting

Radiocasts | October 20, 2014 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: Recruiting.

Acquiring top talent is tough today, with the workforce’s job mobility mindset and rampant competitive employee poaching.

Another critical challenge is much closer to home: your Employer Brand.

Similar to how customers are relying increasingly on social network reviews of your products and services before deciding whether to buy from you, your potential recruits are combing the Web for insider info about your organization.

Time to ask a difficult question. Are your HR Talent leaders and employee ambassadors helping or hindering your brand?

The experts speak.

Tim Sackett, HRU Technical Resources: “I don’t know how this is going to end, I know how it’s going to begin.” (Neo, in the film, The Matrix)

Will Staney, GlassDoor: “I have always been pushed by the negative. The apparent failure of a play sends me back to my typewriter that very night. I am more compelled to get back to work than if I had a success.” (Tennessee Williams)

Jessica Miller-Merrell, Xceptional HR: “To climb the ladder of success, you don’t need more techniques and strategies, you need more friends.” (Jeffrey Gitomer)
