  • Ghosting Ghost Busting

    Keeping candidates engaged throughout the recruitment process is more important now than ever.

    By Marta Chmielowicz

    While ghosting is a common event in today’s dating scene, it is making its way into the business world. And it is something that both recruiters and job candidates are guilty of: Hiring managers have long allowed applicants to fall into the recruitment “black hole” and candidates are now starting to return the favor by skipping interviews, ignoring job offers, not showing up for start dates, and even quitting without a word.

  • Brand Hand-in-Hand

    Aligning employer branding and a positive candidate experience is critical to attracting the best talent.

    By The Editors

    “You only get one chance to make a first impression.” That advice is often given to candidates who are looking for new jobs and engulfed in the interview process. But nowadays, that philosophy is equally important for organizations seeking the best talent. First impressions are often driven by both a positive candidate experience and employer brand communication strategies. And when done right, these approaches create interest and excitement for candidates while employers reap the rewards of a broad, engaged talent pool.

    By Debbie Bolla

    Employer branding. Employee value proposition (EVP). Artificial intelligence (AI).

HRO Today Global Current Issue

  • Bridging Borders

    International employment laws and regulations vary widely—even among the countries within the EMEA region.

    By Simon Kent

    Whilst companies may wish to view their businesses as covering a unified EMEA region, employment law means that such unity can only ever be superficial. Even without the complexities of Brexit, deploying a consistent set of employment policies can seem impossible. “Some inward investors might consider Europe to be a single territory for business purposes,” says Helga Breen, head of the employment practice in London at global legal business DWF. “The reality is that each country has its own legal and regulatory framework and societal and cultural norms.”

  • RPO Partnerships Next-level RPO

    RPO partnerships are moving beyond the transactional and entering the realm of the strategic.

    By Simon Kent

    The days of using an RPO provider to simply deal with the grunt work of recruiting people into an organisation are over. Today’s competitive market—both in terms of the employment market where talent is scarcer than ever and the RPO market itself—means providers must demonstrate that they can bring extra value to the organisations with which they are working. Achieving this means becoming a specialist in more than recruitment alone.

  • HR profession The New HR

    The business world is transforming and the HR profession is transforming with it.

    By Simon Kent

    The role of HR today is more complex than ever. Innovations in data science and technology, the growth of a diverse, multi-generational workforce, and increasing globalisation are shifting the focus of HR departments from process-centric administrative tasks to people-centric functions that support greater business strategies.
