Why RPO’s don’t solve all your Recruitment Programs

Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) became a fancy industry term for outsourcing recruitment about 20 years ago.

“You can’t judge a good Sailor in Calm Seas”

Good Friday: One of my favorite quotes is . . . “You can’t judge a good Sailor in Calm Seas”.  I think this holds true for Organizational Leadership.   As we go thru these tough times, organizations are going to have to make some tough decisions related to furloughing staff.     While tough decisions are called “tough” for a reason, it is how you communicate these decisions and manage thru them that makes all the difference in the world.
