My colleagues Skip Freeman and Mike Garee have just released their new edition book: Headhunter Hiring Secrets 2.0. I was going through it and am really excited about the information they have compiled!
I would like to thank them for including me in their recommended resources section.
You can grab your copy here: http://www.amazon.com/Headhunter-Hiring-Secrets-2-0-Career/dp/1519631049
I also want to share a quick excerpt from page 38 on the job market. I agree with their comments and my clients have shared with me recently that they have been enjoying a surge of activity too!
THE JOB MARKET
Recent conversations I have had with CEOs and presidents of our recruiting firm’s client hiring companies also reflect the following trends and thinking:
- Beginning in 2016 more cash will start flowing into the hiring process simply because it must. People and the companies they now work for have been spread far too thin for far too long and retention of top talent is a growing concern for many companies.
- Forward-thinking companies are looking to increase investment in hiring to gain a competitive edge in their market niche(s). The post-recessionary approaches of cutting costs and staff, while still attempting to increase productivity and develop differentiating products and services, have already begun to produce diminishing returns.
- Evolutionary thinking on workforce diversity continues to expand and is proving to be a key driver of future, sustained growth. The new thinking goes well beyond the traditional Equal Opportunity Employment (EEO) concepts and principles. In a truly global economy more intricately connected than ever before, the embrace of genuine diversity is accelerating people’s ability to learn and adopt new ideas, understand and accept a wider range of perspectives, broadening virtually everyone’s thinking about situations leading to more effective solutions, and exponentially increasing creativity as well as production.
