The advice that HR professionals are thankful for

In honor of Thanksgiving, the NAS team asked our clients a simple question:

What advice about recruiting are you most thankful for having received? 

Here is what they had to say… 

The advice I received that I am most thankful for is to truly not “sweat the small stuff!” You can plan visits down the last detail, only to have them derail completely, for example, while the physician is visiting. You do your best to get the visit back on track and then move on. It’s that simple. No need to dwell on what didn’t happen, just focus on what happens next!

Members of the NAS team were in Las Vegas last week (October 10-13) for HR Tech, showcasing our ACTIVATE™ candidate attraction platform and discovering a wealth of new technologies for HR recruitment. We asked them for a re-cap of the experience and to share their observations. Here’s what they had to say:

Matt Adam | EVP & Chief Talent Strategist

The scene was electric this year. We saw lots of new startup vendors mixed with the giants of
the industry. Since this is the show where many vendors unveil new versions of their platforms and solutions, there is a palpable sense of anticipation and excitement. Artificial Intelligence was a featured topic this year. Many people talked about trying to make sense of all the different options. That’s why it’s important to have a partnership with an agency that can help you sort through the buzz and identify the value of the product and how it meets your specific recruitment needs.

How smart companies are benefiting from analytics

Topics: recruitment analytics, analytics

The numbers don’t lie.

In the dynamic world of analytics, strategies abound: pay-per-click, programmatic media, Facebook promoted posts, social media campaigns, e-blasts, online job postings, event landing pages, your own career site performance…Here’s the thing: unless you can track results of your efforts with unbiased analytics, how can you possibly determine and validate the effectiveness of your HR recruitment spend? How do you know if you need to revise your approach and try other tactics?

Analytics help you to understand candidate behavior and allow for more refined strategies that yield better results. Although employer branding and the candidate experience will always be paramount, smart companies are also adopting a data-centric approach to how prospective candidates engage with job advertising.
