Randstad Sourceright Sourcing Leaders Discuss Trends In Sourcing

Jim Stroud - Sr. Director at Randstad Sourceright

Guess who was featured in a video featuring Randstad Sourceright sourcing leaders? Me! Yay! So excited! Check it out as well as interviews from people much smarter, better looking and more talented than me (okay, now I’m getting depressed) at the recent #SOSUEU conference in Amsterdam. Pass it on…

What did you think of the video? Let me know in the comments below. By the way, all autographs are $19.95!

(Some time later…)

All autographs are now half-price at $9.95 each.

(Later still…)

Now giving away autographs for a limited time!

(and even later…)

For a limited time only, now paying people to take my autograph. Operators are standing by.

I was for big data in HR before I was against it. This is why.

How to use big data in HR and recruiting

I was very fortunate to speak at the 2014 LinkedIn SourceIn event in New York last month. My topic was “I was for big data before I was against it.” Everyone was awake when I was done, so I added it to my “win” column. These are the points I addressed.

# Why are recruiters doing more posting and praying than ever before?
# Who are some masters of big data?
# How are companies using big data to improve their recruiting processes?
# How are companies using big data to improve office efficiency?
# Is big data really “the civil rights issue of our era?”
# What should companies worry about when it comes to using big data for recruiting purposes?
# Why does Jim ramble at times and get distracted so easily? (Seriously, that’s something I ask myself all the time and… squirrel!)

Tune in to the video below and let me know your thoughts? I would really appreciate it.
