How candidate-centric recruiting is changing staffing
The Staffing Stream
Across today’s staffing landscape, leading recruiters and delivery groups are transitioning away from traditional, client-centric recruiting and instead embracing candidate-centric recruiting as a means to continue delivering the industry’s most qualified talent. Attracting top talent in IT staffing means fierce competition for talent in a pool with a historically low 2.2 percent unemployment average. Compelling candidate offers must include more than opportunity and salary discussions; and offer a true value proposition for an overall favorable candidate experience from the first phone call to contract redeployment. Firms that have made this shift know this approach offers benefits clients are accustomed to but also offers benefits previously unavailable to candidates.

Why you should never lose your identity when recruiting
ERE
When you’re in the people business, it’s all about understanding an organization’s needs and improving the return on human capital. Statistics reflect that the best hires are typically referrals. There are obviously a number of reasons why, but one is that an existing employee can comprehend a person’s motivational fit and drivers to the point that they’re confident the candidate will be interested and contribute to the results. Recruiters can do this with both internal and external candidates.
