Talent Metrics are all the rage these days. As they should be! How better to understand your QoH (Quality of Hire) than by having core metrics in place to understand it? But, metrics such as CPH (Cost per Hire), QoH and the TTH (Time to Hire) alone, I challenge, should not be the primary focus. Yes, they have a lot of data within and around them.
As unemployment remains at record lows, Cielo’s new Talent Acquisition 360 study finds that the competition for talent is causing major shifts in corporate strategy, as well as significant disagreements among business functions regarding their companies’ approaches to finding, recruiting, interviewing, and hiring new employees.

One of the challenges involved in building a high performing team is selecting the right people. You can’t build a high performing team with low performing people so who you let into your organisation matters. It is arguably one of the most important decisions you make especially if your team is small.
Hiring someone is supposed to give your team (and you) a great level of capability. You should be able to deliver more. But if you get it wrong and hire the wrong person you will create management challenges that take up your time rather than ‘free up’ your time.
The traditional role of the CISO is changing.
It is being challenged by emerging new regulations such as GDPR, which are impacting all industry sectors, and the arrival on the scene of the new role of the DPOin many firms.
Once upon a time, ATS systems stored millions of stale resumes of any candidate that happened to cross its path. When new roles opened and well-meaning human beings attempted to apply or refer, these systems would mostly say, “Resume already exists in database.” If one were lucky, the ATS would say, “Hey!

As HR and Talent Recruitment professionals, we sometimes have the opportunity to sit on “both sides of the fence” – in the business, and as a vendor. Such is the case with my own career and many of those in my network.
