Earlier this year, I gave keynote presentations at the Minnesota Recruiters Conference, and the Philadelphia CareerBuilder Roadshow on the topic: “The Challenge Ahead For Recruiters Is Clear – Which Path Will You Choose?”
My goal with this presentation is to challenge recruiters and talent acquisition leaders to think creatively about how to approach recruiting talent now – and in the future – and also to consider whether following “best practices” will lead to success if everyone else is doing the same thing.
The folks at CareerBuilder did a great job of summarizing several of the key points from the program, and have used the information to put together an informative guide titled: “From Best Practices To Next Practices: Your Guide To The Future of Recruitment”.
You can download the free 11-page resource here.
Topics covered in the presentation and summary guide include:
- Finding People For Jobs vs. Matching People With Work
- Recruitment Marketing vs. Relationship Marketing
- Employer Branding vs. Employee Branding
- Job Ads vs. Sales Copy
- External Hires vs. Internal Hires
- Employee Referral Bonuses vs. Employee Referral Education
- Talent Communities vs. Resources For Communities
Future recruitment success means choosing a path of creativity and innovation in your recruitment strategy, which is imperative as the competition for top talent continues to heat up. I believe the difference will be made based upon whether you choose to implement BEST practices or NEXT practices in recruitment.
The choice is yours to make. Which path will you choose?
