    PODCAST - #HRHappyHour 173 - How Data is Changing Recruiting

    HR Happy Hour 173 - How Data is Changing Recruiting

    Recorded Friday November 22, 2013

    This week on the HR Happy Hour ShowSteve Boese and Trish McFarlane sat down with Eric Owski, VP of Product Strategy for Bright.comfor an interesting and informative conversation about how data, Big Data really, machine learning, and really sophisticated algorithms are helping organizations better understand the fit and potential for high performance of their candidates, and increasing the chances of making better hires while reducing the time and expense to make screening and hiring decisions.

    It is still a challenge for many HR and Recruiting organizations simply to manage the volume of applicants that they are seeing for many positions, and to have the ability to spend the time and resources attempting to ensure they are engaging with (and hiring) the very best people that they can. The volume can often make expediency win out over making informed decisions, and in front-line, customer-facing roles this has the potential to cause pretty significant problems for the organization. 

    Bright.com offers an approach and a solution that is based on millions of data points, informed by talent and recruiting professionals' input, and validated by the companies that have used the innovative 'Bright Score' to make more consistent and correct decisions about talent and potential.

    You can listen to the show on the show page here, on iTunes, (just search in the podcasts section for 'HR HappyHour'), and using the widget player below, (email and RSS subscribers will need to click through). 

     

    It was a really informative and forward-looking kind of conversation that sheds some light on what new ideas and technologies promise to deliver to the talent management world now and more and more in the future.

    Thanks to Eric and everyone at Bright for taking the time to share his insights!

    PODCAST - #HRHappyHour 168 - On Early Adoption and #HRevolution

    HR Happy Hour 168 - 'HR,  Early Adoption and #HRevolution 2013'

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, hosts Steve Boese and Trish McFarlane welcomed China Gorman, Founder and CEO of the CMG Group, and for more than 25 years, a strategic business leader in in human resources professional services organizations. China is a sought-after speaker, writer and thought leader in the broad human resources marketplace.

    We talked with China about one of her favorite topics - the early adoption of new or innovative technologies in Human Resources.  It turns out that early adoption is one of Trish's favorite topics too - as an HR leader herself she has driven the decision processes and implementations of many of the kinds of HR technologies that are emerging in the market today.

    We also previewed the upcoming HRevolution event taking place in Las Vegas on October 6, 2013, and where you can see China leading a session on Early Adoption of Technology in HR.

    We all know how fast moving and ever changing the landscape is for HR Technology, and whether or not your shop is ready for and can make the best use of any new tech tool is one of the most important questions you have to answer as an HR/Talent pro. China and Trish both shared lots of great ideas and approaches that have worked for them in the past and that will be of help to everyone finding themselves struggling with HR and technology.

    I mostly listened and tried to learn something!

    Thanks to China for the time and the insight about the role of early adoption of technology to empower and improve HR processes, and more importantly, organizational results.

    It was a really fun and interesting show and I hope you check it out.  

    And if you do, my apologies in advance to the nation of Canada.

    While we ALL know that the employee referral is generally cited as the 'best' source of hire for external hiring, it is also true that creating, managaing, and monitoring these programs has often been an administrative challenge, and keeping employees engaged in the process and referral program can also be a challenge.

    Zao helps solve a few of these common challenges, and even if you are not thiking of automating your employee referral process, Ziv shared some ideas and best practices gained from their work with organizations all over the world.

    Thanks to Ziv for the time and the insight about the role of technology to empower and extend the classic employee referral program.
