Blocking and Tackling For Meetings

Written By: Rob Wicker, VP of Recruitment and Operations

As many sports team’s head to the practice field to prepare for another season it made me think of how every team starts out – working on the fundamentals.  The planning for a practice is probably more important than the practice itself and the same goes for a well-run meeting.  When planning a meeting make sure you consider the following best practices:

  1. Define what you are trying to get out of the meeting (or if you need to even have a meeting).
  2. Make sure you have a detailed agenda.
  3. Organize your presentations and handouts to compliment what you are attempting to accomplish.
  4. Only invite people that will participate in the meeting.
  5. Wrap up your meeting with next steps and clear expectations.

Just like a great head coach, it is important to have a detailed game plan for a successful outcome.  Put these best practices into your routine and watch the productivity and wins add up!

The 3 Core Qualities of a R1 Recruiter

Written By: Rob Wicker, VP of Recruitment

 

On the surface, recruiting seems like a pretty straight forward entry level job. The staffing industry is *$146 Billion-dollar industry that is growing around 5% per year.  After spending ten years in the industry, I have had the opportunity to work with many recruiters and have made a few observations on what it takes to be successful.

 

After participating in over 1,000 interviews, I’ve come to the conclusion that this industry isn’t for everyone.  At Reliance One, we have found some core qualities that most successful recruiters have.  If I find a candidate that is, competitive, goal driven and has good people skills, we have the core skills that it takes to be successful.  After that, it is the pure determination to succeed that determines the level of success a recruiter will realize.

 

The demands for our services have never been more in exigence and our recruiters are the backbone to solving our clients staffing challenges.
