Should Recruiting Report Into HR?

14 September 2009 at 5:53AM Leave a comment

The Punk Rock HR Girl Laurie Ruettimann caught an interesting thread of conversation while she was at the ERE Expo. The question of the moment was, “Should Recruiting Report Into HR?

Ruettimann’s response:

None of it matters. The only thing that matters are results. Your reporting relationship is an excuse — not an explanation — for your inability to make a dent in the way that talent is acquired and managed at your company.

So here’s the answer to the great Recruiting/HR conundrum.

  • Do your job.
  • Do it with integrity.
  • Fight mediocrity

Great advice, Laurie!

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."
