Posted by Eric Putkonen on 09/28/2015 in Recruiting articles |

Every year I see the CareerXRoad Source of Hire Survey and also recently I saw SilkRoad’s Top Sources of Hire 2015 Report, and I consistently see employee referrals as the top source of hire.

I found another TED Talk that was very interesting for human resource professionals and recruiters.  This also covers some aspects of employee engagement. “Infusing more humanity back into the work place for those human beings who happen to be employees.” She suggests we need to treat employees humanly – which means to address very human […]

Unfortunately, it is reported to be low.  Per Gallup, the majority of U.S. employees are not engaged despite gains in 2014.  They measured employee engagement at 31.5%.  Supposedly, this is the highest it has […]

Recently, I read an article by James Ellis called “Moneyball Recruiting: Winning a Rigged Game.”  It is a very good article that says the recruiting game could be won through content.
