Brainfood Live On Air - Ep109 - From Agency Recruiter to In-House Recruiter

May 21, 2021

FROM AGENCY TO INHOUSE - TOP TIPS

I've been fielding a lot of questions lately from recruiters agency side who are keen to explore the challenges of the working in-house, so this is a show dedicated to those folks who are thinking about making this move!

Almost all in-house recruiters worked formerly agency side and the rise of direct hiring by employers has led to explosive growth of the in-house recruiter business. What are the differences, what are the similarities? How does a recruiter move from 3rd party to in-house - and for that matter, vice versa?

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep107 - Post Pandemic Crisis - Employee Retention

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep107 - Post Pandemic Crisis - Employee Retention

May 7, 2021

Is there going to be a wave of resignations post pandemic? This is a concern for many in our industry as the return to the office clashes with elevated expectations of flexibility from the employee population used to setting their own schedules, their own mode of work, their own rules.....

It makes sense for any HR / TA / People Ops professional to anticipate the challenge and mitigate for it.

- how to improve retention rate (and is it too late?)
- how much accommodation is too much?
- how clear are our communications?
- has compensation changed, should it change
- how we redesign career paths which encourage retention?

All this and more as we talk about the next major challenge in the world of HR / TA.

ON HIRING SENIOR LEADERS

Have you had this experience?

CEO comes to you and asks you to begin a confidential search for a replacement for an incumbent C-level leaders. Search is going to take 6 months, so you need to get started now as there is a predicted need to upgrade the department - what do you do?

- How to hire C-suite?
- How to hire confidentially?
- What are the qualities required to lead?
- Can these be quantified or is really just chemistry with the CEO?

QUANTIFYING COMPANY CULTURE - WHY & HOW?

There isn't a TA, HR Manage or CEO who doesn't think their company culture is the most important thing about their business.....but is there a way to actually measure it?

In a world increasingly driven by metrics, company culture is one where we are consistently lagging, relying at best on periodic pulse surveys, at worst on - you guessed it - gut feel.

Is there a better way? Can we actually measure company culture? And if so, what do we measure? Are there any patterns to see in how the most effective companies operate?

These are the questions we are going to try and answer in this week's Brainfood Live On Air. We're with Social Psychologist and Talent Intelligence lead Leila Mortet (Philips), Skill Scout CEO Elena Valentine and People Analytics Consultant, Natasha Oulis (NeoConsulting) and Brian Evje, Head of People (Uncapped)

Nico Blier-Silvestri in the co-pilot seat.
