In defence of Recruiters

This post has been written for the latest edition of #HRCarnival, which is hosted by Jennifer McClure. Jennifer is best known as @CincyRecruiter. I was lucky enough to meet Jennifer at #HREvolution, and I’m delighted that she will be sharing her wisdom at #truManchester on the 8th/9th September. Not to be missed! I have been […]

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 […]

@JonIngham and the #tru leadership conversation

I’m in the middle of writing up a series of learning points that hit home for me during #trulondon2, but this video from Jon Ingham was simmilar to a post I was composing, so here is my uncut thoughts.  In you’r blog “You’ll never be rich (it’s tru!)” on your excellent blog, Jon Ingham’s strategic, you refer […]

#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 […]

#HRCarnival Part Deux

Day 1 of the #HRCarnival Video Blog was very well received judging by your comments and  tweets. If you are joining the show on day 2, you can still view and vote on day 1 here. To remind you, there are 2 categories to vote for each day. 1: Most entertaining video. 2: Best message for […]

H.R. Helping Hands.

Whilst attention from the H.R. and Recruiting community is on this blog for the #HRCarnival, and in the spirit of the season, I want to offer some help and encouragment to job seekers in these sectors. This came about because I posted quite a long response on Margo Rose’s blog advising how she might be […]

The other “Avatar” movie. #HRCarnival 2010

After much asking, pleading,bullying, mentioning and twittering, the 2010 Video Edition of #HRCarnival is here. Thanks to everyone who contributed, sent out the message and made this possible. Without sounding like an oscar speech, VERY SPECIAL THANKS to 2 people who have made this possible: Lisa Scales from Talent On View who provided the technology. […]

Who do you want to be in 2010?

This is a bit of a random blog following a twitter stream  started yesterday. It’s not important really, but it does make you think about who and what you want to be in 2010. If I think back to this time in 2008,I had no idea that I would be flying to America and Canada to lead tracks at […]

H.R. Carnival – Cameras, lights, action!

You may well be aware of the HR Carnival either as a contributor or reader. The last edition was published by @MikeVanDervort on his excellent blog Human Racehorses. I’ve always been a fan of the Vlog. That’s a video blog if you need a translation. I feel this gives you a truer feeling for the person […]
