Posted by Eric Putkonen on 04/25/2017 in NeoRecruiting Talks |

At the end of last year, ERE published an article called “9 Talent-acquisition Trends to Watch for in 2017.”  I was excited to see one of the bullet points was as follows: A/B testing will become a critical factor in the battle for talent. Do fewer candidates drop off during the application process if you […]

Often Recruiters Can Never Truly Be a Partner

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 02/16/2017 in Recruiting articles |

I have been a recruiter for a long time and spoken with a lot of my peers about this.  In the end, I think Human Resources/Talent Acquisition has messed up the possibility of being partners to many hiring managers.  We keep saying hiring managers are our primary customers.  There is a difference between customers and […]

Is There a Better Way Than Resume Review?

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 01/27/2017 in Recruiting articles |

I recently watched “Why hiring is broken” by Kate Glazebrook from TEDxGoodenoughCollege.  Yet another person saying resumes are broken (which is true), but this time with research to back it up.  They don’t really do a good job predicting performance and they allow biases to creep in. What good is a resume really?  As a […]

Measuring Quality of Hire in Recruiting

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 12/21/2016 in Recruiting articles |

Per the Global Recruiting Trends 2017 by LinkedIn, in the top 3 of recruiting metrics we see “length of stay” and “hiring manager satisfaction.”  Both of these point towards quality of hire.  Another main recruiting metric is “time to fill,” but this metric is about recruiting efficiency and not quality of hire. “Length of stay” […]

Are You Enabling Bad Behavior From Hiring Managers?

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 11/23/2016 in Recruiting articles |

I have had a lot of success “training” hiring managers into using proper processes and procedures.  That is what we have to do as recruiters…we need to train hiring managers to a certain degree. I don’t mean giving them training sessions on the illegal questions to ask during interviews. I don’t mean giving them training […]

Raising the Bar the Moneyball Way

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 09/21/2016 in Recruiting articles |

I was recently rewatching the movie “Moneyball” and this movie often makes me think and rethink about the way we recruit. If you need a quick refresher, it comes down to the Oakland A’s had their best players hired away for more money than they could afford.  So big teams with big budgets would hire […]

It’s Time to Test Your Application Process

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 08/24/2016 in Recruiting articles |

I won’t be talking about usability, time needed to complete the application, or many other very important topics.  Today I want to focus on a specific test.  A test I think that should be done routinely and regularly.

Recruiters, Do You Know Who the Top Performers Are Internally?

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 07/14/2016 in Recruiting articles |

My first article appeared on ERE today as “The Employee-referral Opportunity You May Be Missing.”  Below is an except, but you can click the link to see the whole article on ERE.   In many companies, once the recruiter makes the hires and perhaps onboards them, the recruiter is no longer involved in the new […]

Corporate Recruiters Need a CRM in Addition to an ATS

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 07/12/2016 in Recruiting articles |

I have worked in a few different corporate recruiting departments over the years.  They almost always had an Applicant Tracking System (ATS).  They never had a Customer Relationship Management system (CRM).  Then I went to UnitedHealth Group.  They have both an ATS and CRM for recruiters to use. “Why”, I thought.  Due to compliance with […]
