Integration: the key to recruiting on the Web

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Onlinerecruitment sites are used by HR managers everywhere on a daily basis. But arethey being fully embraced by the department and integrated as fully as theycould be? Ifthe answer’s no, it may be because they are not being managed properly. i-GRaspis an online recruitment management systems company that aims to ensure jobapplications – whether online, direct to the recruiters or from an employmentagency – can be tracked and managed online to streamline the process further.Managing director Andy Randall explains why such systems can make a difference.By Sue WeekesPT:Online recruitment systems on their own can significantly cut recruitingcosts and timescales. What difference will a management system make to the HRdepartment?PH:It lets them keep the human touch and takes away the administration. A lot ofrecruiters are heavily loaded and such a system should let recruitment shed itsdata-entry image and bring new challenges for them that should make their workmore interesting and make fuller use of their abilities.Recruitingbecomes a more collaborative process. If a line manager calls up an HR managerto ask what stage they are at with a particular application, they can bothaccess details on the system and have an intelligent discussion about it. Ithelps to promote a feeling of working together. Companies aren’t groups ofislands anymore. You can be a virtual team – HR manager in one office, linemanager in another office in London and candidate in Edinburgh, for instance –but they can all meet together via a single system.PT:What problems have you had to overcome installing online recruitment systems?PHProblems arise when people sell a vision and customers believe that once theyhave a job site on the Web, all they have to do is switch a button and awaythey go. It must be implemented properly, often with a programme of changemanagement at the same time. If not, reactionary factors can arise, such as HRstaff fearing for their jobs and line managers not wanting the new responsibilitythat an involvement in recruitment brings. We like clients to already bethinking about how the system will change their organisation before they cometo us.PT:So how should senior management and HR departments prepare?PH:They must be committed to the success of it and be prepared to commit resourcesto it, in terms of the right solution and the right staff. They have to bevisionary and have to have a project sponsor or champion, who could be the headof HR or recruitment. They need to prepare for both organisational and processchange. Some companies put together a dedicated e-enablement project managementteam where the key people could come from HR, and maybe some from IT.PT:How do you see online recruitment systems working over the next few years?PH:We will see development of communities working at several levels. First of all,HR professionals and recruiters need to look at their own intranet in terms ofhow staff use it and how they deploy their range of vacancies on it. Next, theyshould develop alumni networks, rather like college websites do forex-students. Atthe moment this is a very underdeveloped area on corporate sites, but if thereis a corner of the website dedicated to alumni, ex-employees can keep anassociation with the company and may one day return if they’re kept in touch.At the moment, the referral section we have on our system is a midway point tothis, where people can recommend friends and ex-colleagues for jobs. Thereshould also be an aspirational part of the site, where people who areinterested in working for the company or brand can visit.PT:How do you see companies approaching recruitment over the next few years?PH:Printed media will remain important, but recruitment adverts will work moregenerically, driving people to the corporate website. Recruiters and HRprofessionals need a multi-pronged attack when it comes to their recruitmentstrategy: their system should be integrated with the employment agencies’integrated with their website and corporate intranet and integrated with theirinternal people. These three areas are vital and they shouldn’t do any of themin isolation.www.i-GRasp.com Integration: the key to recruiting on the WebOn 18 Apr 2001 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Strong site-fidelity increases vulnerability of common bottlenose dolphins Tursiops truncatus in a mass tourism destination in the western Mediterranean Sea

admin No Comments

first_imgThe local population of common bottlenose dolphin in the Balearic Islands coastal waters, a mass tourism destination in the western Mediterranean subject to increasing anthropogenic pressures, was monitored over a three-year period. Photo-identification surveys provided a relatively small population estimate, even though the islands are considered to be a hotspot for the species in the Mediterranean. Dolphins showed strong site-fidelity and relatively limited mobility across the archipelago, which makes them highly dependent on waters which are severely affected by overfishing, habitat degradation and boat disturbance resulting from a continuously-growing tourism and shipping industry. Ecosystem-based management actions are urgently needed to ensure the conservation of this fragile population of bottlenose dolphins. Conservation measures should be developed within the already-existing political and legal marine biodiversity conservation framework and in collaboration with local authorities and stakeholders.last_img read more

first_imgA man who sexually abused an underage girl over a number of years has had his sentence increased after the Attorney General’s Office referred it to the Court of Appeal for being too low.David Ballinger, 52, began sexually abusing his victim when she was around 10 years old, and continued his offending for many years. The abuse included carrying-out and recording various sexual acts with the victim, as well as coercing her into sending him indecent images.In addition to this, thousands of indecent images of other children were recovered from Ballinger’s computer.Ballinger was originally sentenced at Gloucester Crown Court in May, where he was sentenced to 8 years and 8 months’ imprisonment. Today, after the Unduly Lenient Sentence referral, the Court of Appeal increased his sentence to 12 years 8 months imprisonment plus 1 year extended licence.Speaking after the hearing, Attorney General Geoffrey Cox QC MP said:“Ballinger carried out a campaign of sexual abuse against a child over many years, and it is important that this is reflected in his sentence. Following the Court of Appeal’s decision today I am satisfied that justice has now been done and seen to be done by those who have suffered at his hands.”last_img read more
