Jobless Recovery: Human Capital Utilization

For some time now, indications are that the current economic recovery, which is slowly taking place, will be a “jobless” recovery. By that it is meant that jobs lost in the downturn will not reappear or will reappear in significantly less numbers than prior to the recession. If this is the case, the recession of 2009 will be the third such jobless recovery since 1990. The first and second jobless recoveries occurred in 1991 and 2001 respectively. Prior to 1991 recession-recovery cycles resulted in as many jobs being created as were lost and in some case, excess jobs were produced.  According to The Economist online, the current recovery is following the same path that the prior jobless recoveries of 1991 and 2001 took: a permanent loss of jobs.

To be perfectly clear, it is not the role of private business to create jobs. Jobs are created in the business sector only when a valid business need requires to be fulfilled. (more…)

What is my return on investment when using a head hunter?

 

What is my return on investment when using a head hunter?

That is a good question!

How do you quantify the time and manpower employed to locate top talent with the best company fit?

If you are in a smaller company, you probably have to invest you own time, time that you are not working on your business objectives, or you may have an administrative or junior colleague trying to understand the experience and skills you need and balance their own job duties.

If you are in a larger company, you may even have an HR or internal recruiter. What is often missing is the ability to access top talent, across industry segments, whether from competitors or partners. One way to put a number on it is to ask yourself what you could have accomplished during the time you were looking for the right person, and how much time you spent with a potential candidate who didn’t meet your hiring objectives.

Redfish Tech is a nation-wide recruiter. We specialize in High Tech and Renewable and Alternate Energy sectors.

We have 15 years of experience and extensive networks in these industries. We can pull talent from all across the continent, and locate the right person quickly. We qualify candidates in terms of both experience and skills, and as regards company cultural fit.

We partner with companies to streamline the process and get the right person within your time frame so that you can focus your time and energy on your core competencies. Redfish has access to top talent who may not be actively looking for a job, and we often are the first to know when experienced people have started looking for their next opportunity to contribute to a new company.

We partner with you and put our extensive recruiting experience to work for you.  We undertake the advertising, perform background checks, keep you informed as to job market conditions, and offer salary and benefit recommendations based on industry trends.

We work on a retained or contingency basis, depending on the needs of your company and the difficulty of filling the position. A partnership with Redfish gives you a greater competitive edge and improved bottom line. Now that is worth taking to the bank.
