Why Are We Still Using Stock Photos on Our Careers Sites?

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 03/14/2017 in Recruiting articles |

I pretty consistently read the articles on ERE and have done so for years.  Many of the articles are geared towards showing innovation in recruiting and how we could all be doing things better.  Other times, you get articles that tell you things that are obvious but so many companies still are behind the ball […]

VR: New Possibilities for Virtual Reality in Recruiting

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 12/06/2016 in Recruiting articles |

I recently gave myself an early Christmas present…a Sidardoe 3D VR goggles/headset.  I would not necessarily recommend them beyond just a really cheap viewer ($22) to try virtual reality video out.  I just put my iPhone into the headset’s case and pull up videos…many on YouTube. What amazed me most was watching an online video […]

The Quickest Way for Recruiters to Shame Their Company

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 06/07/2016 in Recruiting articles |

I know we all have a job to do…for recruiters it is finding people for our open positions.  I know it is not an easy job to do at times, but we need to do it in such a way as not shame our companies. For example, before you reach out to a potential candidate […]

What If We Thought of Our Employees as Volunteers?

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 05/04/2016 in Recruiting articles |

I believe it is important to think differently as a recruiter or leader.  Today’s post is about our employees.  How we treat them is derived by how we think of them.  Because we pay them, many believe this should be enough for them to keep coming back, give us their best, and do as we […]

What is Gravitational Recruiting?

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 04/19/2016 in Recruiting articles |

I think we need to put more thought into trying to create Gravitational Recruiting.  That is, recruiting that pulls in applicants (active and passive) like matter in space to the Earth or the Sun. Currently, we have more of a mindset of just get something out there to be seen.  As if, someone just seeing […]

How Recruiting Internally Makes Employees Feel Unvalued

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 02/18/2016 in Recruiting articles |

I am a major supporter of promoting from within and careers tracks and such.  I think it is a great thing when people grow within the company and stay for years working their way up the chain. But we are also likely disenfranchising other employees and making them feel unvalued and without hope of a […]

Don’t Be One of Those Recruiters (Recruiters Are…)

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 01/05/2016 in Recruiting articles |

Have you ever gone to Google and typed in “recruiters are” and looked at what auto-fills? Recruiters are…   Don’t be one of those recruiters. Not all recruiters are like this, of course, but it happens enough that this is what comes to mind for many candidates.  If it were not accurate (to be almost […]

Creating Job Descriptions That Show Meaningful Work

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 10/22/2015 in Personal / About Me, Recruiting articles |

People tend to underestimate and undervalue the power of meaning in work.  People don’t understand the magnitude of the importance of meaningful work. Behavioral economist Dan Ariely presented two eye-opening experiments that reveal our unexpected and nuanced attitudes toward meaning in our work in a Ted Talk he gave at TEDxRiodelaPlata.  His experiments didn’t even […]

How to make work-life balance work by Nigel Marsh

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 10/18/2015 in Personal / About Me |

Interesting TED Talk by Nigel Marsh about work-life balance.  Some of the things he spoke about are as follows: We need an honest debate if we are going to make any progress on this issue.  Government and corporations will not solve this issue for us.  It is up to us to take control and responsibility […]

The way we think about work is broken by Barry Schwartz

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 09/19/2015 in Personal / About Me |

I was watching this TED Talk by Barry Schwartz today. What makes work satisfying? Apart from a paycheck, there are intangible values that, Barry suggests, our current way of thinking about work simply ignores. It’s time to stop thinking of workers as cogs on a wheel. Barry said “it is not true that you just […]
