If there is one thing that I hear more from hiring managers and executives, especially executives!, it is why can’t recruiting, as a function, be more proactive! Both groups look at it like an economic lesson – supply and demand – like recruiting is an assembly line. In ‘their’ world they have expected needs, and to meet those needs they will need product, so they schedule that much product to be produced and ready for delivery on the date needed. Simple. What is wrong with recruiting!? That’s what we want!
