Recruiting Blog: BuzzLinks for 07-16-08 Diversity Inc., RPO, and more AllianceQ 2 Comments

By Jason Buss.

Diversity, Inc. revealed top companies for African Americans.

While revenue may being growing in the RPO arena, reducing costs by 40% while increasing quality has to be an extreme example from the most broken recruiting function a RPO provider could find.

As a follow-up to my post on AllianceQ, I came across an article on Workforce that highlights two big challenges:

  • Passive job seekers aren’t likely to be drawn into the AllianceQ database
  • Corporate Recruiters don’t review Resume’s in their own system, which makes the additional value questionable

In the article, Phil Haynes, managing director of the alliance, said its job-matching approach from QuietAgent is superior to the typical method of comparing résumés against job descriptions. While both résumés and job postings can be poorly written and result in firms missing the best candidate for the job, he said, AllianceQ relies on a competency-based system designed to better connect job-seekers and openings.
