CareerXroads is a small international consulting practice founded by myself and my business partner, Mark Mehler.
Simply stated, we facilitate a dialogue between staffing leaders. Our aspiration is to contribute to a growing community of recruiting professionals who are dedicated to improving their business' long-term performance through the staffing function.
My passion is to understand how firms design and build staffing processes, the technology to enhance them and the systems to manage them.
I want to know more about the playing field where candidates and employers meet; how firms tout their latest opening and job seekers‘game’their way in. Does any of it truly make a difference (to a firm's performance)? is there a better way? I'm pretty sure there is.
I'm more than an observer of evolving staffing models. I believe competitive corporations staffing functions will be characterized (a) by being metrics driven, (b) by offering job seeker experiences tied to their level of competition and (c) by embedding and embracing technology-based networking tools as a means to build communication and thus candidate pipelines.
I facilitate with my partner, 4-6 small group, invitation-only meetings each year to think about how to leverage tools, tactics, technologies and training. How to weave them into strategy and change the way recruiting is done. Particpants are professionals who can think critically, share openly and influence their corporation's recruiting efforts.
