The world has changed and recruiters need to change with it!

As an HR professional for a number of years I am consistently disappointed when I ask the simple question. What does HR do?

I guess my disappointment is that the answer I get today would have been the answer others would have received more than 50 years ago!!

I wrote a blog some time ago calling out to HR folks to “get it!”

I have been described as having an “edgy sophistication.” * If that means I am a different kind of HR professional, one who knows that my role in life is to build and develop a profitable business now and into the future, and is relentless about pursing that objective, then I take that as a compliment.

The reason for this blog is to call out a different approach to recruitment.

I am sick and tired of all the administration and “fandango” that goes with HR-Recruitment stuff that talks about fit for hire and associated administrative job descriptions!

My experience is that very few of the Recruiters – HR people who are involved in recruiting actually “feel what the business needs to be profitable.”

My simple message is throwaway traditional thinking. It might have worked 50 years ago, if it ever did, and move to one that identifies what the business needs 10 years from now and go hire those folks.

Imagination is a core competence that is rare to find and those are the people I would hire! And those are the people I would ask to do my recruitment.

I've decided to pursue my passion in jewellery designs since I love femininity and all things beautiful and sparkly, well almost all. I'm a proud mother to two gorgeous and amazing girls. I recently left the corporate world, went through a tragic loss and relationship breakdown yet I'm here alive and still very much wanting to pursue my dreams and maintain a state of happiness.
