REA: Etched Glass on a Low Rectangle

23 April 2007 at 3:51PM 1 comment

Not to be confused with the Creative Excellence Awards, the Recruiting Excellence Awards were handed out last week at the ERE Spring 2007 Expo in San Diego. This program is run by ERE.NET, and specifically targets recruiting and related talent acquisition successes. Only corporations can apply – no agencies are allowed. The judging panel is a mix of high-profile Staffing gurus – Sullivan and Adler – and winners from last year.

So – Congratulations to the 2007 Recruiting Excellence Award Winners:

Best Diversity Program: Compuware Corporation
Best Corporate Careers Website: Starbucks
Most Innovative Employee Referral Program: Tenet Healthcare
Best Employer Brand: Intuit
Most Effective Use of Staffing Metrics: AIMCO
Most Innovative Recruiting Process or Departmental Structure: Whirlpool
Best Employee Retention Program/Practices: AIMCO
Best College Recruiting Program: Ernst & Young
Most Strategic Use of Recruitment Technology: Electronic Arts
Recruiter of the Year: Achuthan Nair, Wipro Technologies

After a bit of web work, I’ll post some further reflections on the different web and branding entries. It will be interesting to see if any of the REA winners are CEA winners too!

My Core Ideas

1. "I can't tell you the best way to get a job - because there is no one best way. After 21 years of recruiting, I CAN share things I've seen candidates do to guarantee they DIDN'T get the job."

2. "Most companies don't realize how their recruiting process impacts their candidate pool, and their business. Attention to simple things will result in big improvements."
