#truLondon Discussion on How to Recruit College Students and Grads

truLondon logoLast week I had the good fortune to be able to participate in the eighth truLondon unconference. What’s an unconference? Well, if you’ve ever been to a conference for recruiters and other human resource professionals then you can picture the typical presentation room with rows of chairs for attendees and the presenter at the front of the room with her trusty podium, microphone, name badge, and PowerPoint presentation. None of that is anywhere to be seen in an unconference put on by Globaltru.

Bill Boorman, Aki Kakko, and Craig Fisher are the principals of the tru conferences, which are spreading across the globe faster than guppies reproduce and likely are the world’s largest series of recruiting events. Just about every week there’s a tru conference in cities such as Sydney, Dublin, Seattle, New York, Helsinki, Toronto, and London. Last week’s unconference was at the University of Westminster in London and attended by about 150 organizers, track leaders, and attendees. The agenda was thrown out the window before the conference started and we immediately descended into what Bill affectionately refers to as “organized chaos.” There were six classrooms with one being set up as a mini studio for Kelly Services’ The Talent Project from which they broadcast via Internet livestreaming a series of discussions.

Cost to Employer of Bad Hire Exceeds $50,000

Matt Ferguson, CEO of Careerbuilder

Matt Ferguson, CEO of Careerbuilder

A new study shows that hiring the wrong person can have serious implications for companies. More than half of employers in each of the ten largest world economies said that a bad hire (someone who turned out not to be a good fit for the job or did not perform it well) has negatively impacted their business, pointing to a significant loss in revenue or productivity or challenges with employee morale and client relations.

For example, among those reporting having had a bad hire, 27 percent of U.S. employers reported a single bad hire cost more than $50,000. In the Eurozone, bad hires were most expensive in Germany, with 29 percent reporting costs of 50,000 euros ($65,231) or more. In the U.K., 27 percent of companies say bad hire costs more than 50,000 British pounds. Three in ten Indian employers (29 percent) reported the average bad hire cost more than 2 million Indian rupees ($37,150), and nearly half of surveyed employers in China (48 percent) reported costs exceeding 300,000 CNY ($48,734).

Optimism By Employers: India Most and Italy Least

Matt Ferguson, CEO of Careerbuilder

Matt Ferguson, CEO of Careerbuilder

A new job forecast for the 10 largest world economies tells a tale of both confidence and caution. Brazil and India are voicing the greatest confidence with more than two-thirds of employers in these markets planning to add full-time, permanent headcount in 2013. Italy is the least optimistic, housing more employers who expect to decrease staff than those who expect to hire.

“The job outlook presents varying degrees of growth and deceleration as governments and businesses strive to rebuild and expand and deal with large deficits,” said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder. “Hiring activity in the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) is projected to be significantly higher than other markets while recruitment in Europe remains sluggish as leaders struggle to resolve a debt crisis that has global implications. The overall hiring picture is improving, but companies will remain watchful as they navigate headwinds and maneuver through somewhat precarious economic terrain.” (more…)
