How to Build a Profitable Vendor Management Business

Staffing Talk

What industry practice has done more to ruin relationships, decrease quality hires, keep hiring managers from communicating effectively with recruiters, increase corporate bureaucracy, generate countless meetings, waste hundreds of hours in unfruitful training, and ultimately result in long, expensive implementations? How can I make a quality hire for my client if I can't talk to the hiring manager?And,

The Candidate Shortage Lie

Staffing Talk

Minimum wage laws can prevent employers from hiring workers by artificially pricing the pay rate above that which makes sense for the employer. It seems that you can't pick up an HR publication without reading something about the so-called 'candidate shortage'. Key employee leaves: candidate shortage. Restaurant short on help: candidate shortage. Staffing company can't fill job order: candidate shortage. And so on. The reality is that no free market has a shortage of anything.

The Fastest Way to Lose a Staffing Deal

Staffing Talk

Hire Sense has a post on how to make those cold calls more valuable. When it's all said and done, the most frequent way you lose business in staffing is to have someone else pay more attention to your client. That can happen as easily as a productive cold caller catching your client at the right moment. Since their main business is recruiting sales professionals, it's good to see them eating their own dog food in phone screning candidates

Word of the Day: assiduity

Staffing Talk

Anyway, still on a hiring/coding binge here trying to get out our 12r1 release. Assiduity: the ability to sit down on your ass and do what you have to do. As in, "She's an assiduous programmer. She just sits on her ass and cranks out code until she's done." Francophiles out there will note easily the root similarity to 'assis' (seated) from which in fact it derives. I'm told though that the seemingly obvious relationship between 'ass' and 'assiduity' is quite fortuitous.

Seth Godin and "Follow Through"

Staffing Talk

Then it's upgrades, support, documentation, expensive sales and marketing, feature creep, hiring/firing and fatigue. Seth Godin gets a lot of things right about marketing. I read him religiously. But he doesn't quite nail "follow through".at at least not in golf, although the same concept applies in business and personal relationships. Seth's slippery slope in fact explains very little. The importance of follow through is in no way diminished by the fact that the ball left the clubface.

Old White Fart Faces Up to Facebook

Staffing Talk

For example, let's say you're looking to hire computer science grads or staffing professionals in Minneapolis (which we are at Tempworks). My 20-year-old daughter reprimanded me for my ignorant Facebook post. This is the same daughter who got me started on text-messaging a few years back which eventually led to a lot of the mobile web and text message development at Tempworks. Facebook has replaced email for many young people, especially those under age 18.

Why I Hate Mission Statements

Staffing Talk

Staff are hired for their skills and experience, competitively compensated for their work, given an environment that fosters trust and teamwork, and offered professional growth to match their commitment and ability. Here's a challenge for you aspiring writers out there: try to write a more trite piece of prose than this mission statement that I found in one of our employee manuals: At TempWorks Software, our mission is simple.

The Story Behind TempWorks

Staffing Talk

Thankfully, I have had a lot of luck hiring really smart people more hungry for success than me I love to hear from my clients about how their companies got started. It makes for the best stories – stuff you can’t make up or find in a book. One client started her company as an offshoot from a baby-sitting gig. Another when she sent her secretary to bail out a friend’s company. And yet another when he got laid off from a national staffing company.
