6 Cool Tools with @Fishdogs and @BillBoorman #TalentNet

Sometimes, when your spending time with friends, it’s good to just fire up the camera and ask a question for a one take video. We are going to be running the Cool Tools session at #TNL in Austin on Friday, before venturing in to the geekfest that is #SXSW. This is our one take on […]

How to build a recruiting desk.

I made this video for Next Level training in Dallas about 14 months ago, for Next Level Training, the training exchange. it has taken a while to get an airing, (due to all the other great content available.) I think this 5 minute snippet gives you a good idea of some of what I believe […]

#HRCarnival TV: X Factor Edition – Take Part

I have the pleasure of hosting another edition of the #HRCarnival, starting from September 1’st. I say starting, because I’m doing things a little bit different again. The last carnival I hosted was a #vlog carnival  which attracted 100 contributors featured over 10 days. In any one day there was up to 1000 visitors to […]

Think Inside The Box

I was recently asked in a tweet by @JustinHillier:  “Recruiting in 2021 – Whats your out of the box idea. http://bit.ly/bqy5Q0 #socialrecruiting” This is not an uncommon question and got me considering if “out of the box thinking”, is the big challenge faced by recruiters and H.R. now, or whether we should actually be looking […]

A personal message

We talk a lot about transparency and being open, the need for it in this social world, and why if you’re not telling everything to the world then someone else will. We also talk about personal brand and corporate brand, and why you need to be authentic and honest. I agree with these points mostly, […]

Scrap H.R?

Earlier this week I phoned a blogtalk radio show hosted by Paul Parris called the ex-recruiter show. Nothing unusual in that but the guest, HR Fishbowl, who I was really impressed with, got me thinking.  Is the real problem with H.R. that it is thought of as a Dept rather than a function? I should […]

My #Trulondon – Random thoughts and ramblings

I wanted to wait a few weeks till I wrote my blog on what my takeaways were from #trulondon to let them sink in properly. For me, it was a great event. Logistically, we had a few problems and hands up, we made a few cock ups that we need to get right, mostly around […]

#trulondon track schedule

After all the talk, tweets, Facebook posts and the like, the BIG event is nearly here. I’m overwhelmed by the number of people that are jumping on planes to descend on London for 2 days of great conversation and more. Thanks also to all our sponsors, in particular Tempworks (who have flown in our trackleaders), […]

#HR Carnival Day 7-The Show Goes On

  I was pleased to see the tweets referring to Video 56  from Blake Cannon on what he is doing to get veterans returning to the U.S. to get in to work. I think this has been the stand out discovery for me in researching the carnival and is to be commended. It also got me wondering whether anyone else […]
