sourcing ROI calculator [TOOL] #sosueu

Great companies starting their journey of building an in-house sourcing function are usually aiming for cost saving in the first place. This is the most regular answer they give when interviewing them: become less dependent of 3rd party agencies and thus to save cost on agency fees. This is an obvious drive behind such aContinue reading “sourcing ROI calculator [TOOL] #sosueu”

What Tinder, Grindr and Co can teach us about sourcing?

romantic fantasy with much love and some blood A good friend of mine, an exceptionally talented young sourcer, let’s call him Bobby Curaçao, is present on almost each and every dating site. Well, these are not websites, as I was corrected by Bobby, but mobile apps with usually no (or not too developed) desktop applications. WhoContinue reading “What Tinder, Grindr and Co can teach us about sourcing?”

designing the ever-best sourcing function [PREZI]

This is the pair post of my very last one: 25 questions you need to ask before setting up a sourcing function. No, I am not [yet] fully addictive to blogging, however, as the previous post was pretty lengthy I thought it might be handy to have (more or less) the same content but in a prezi style.Continue reading “designing the ever-best sourcing function [PREZI]”

25 questions you need to ask before setting up a sourcing function

Setting up any sourcing function (in-house, agency or an RPO-type megacenter) is a massive exercise. Many think that hiring a handful of experienced sourcers will make the game. Great sourcers know what to do (and how) and their previous expertise will automatically solve everything. Others more believe in focusing on the continuous learning and developmentContinue reading “25 questions you need to ask before setting up a sourcing function”

#OldMeNewMe (Part I.)

This is the story of the last 3-4 months when I switched off from work and decided to reboot the engine of my life. I resigned from Randstad at the end of July 2016 (producing my ever longest sugar sweet emotional farewell video) and joined GE in a refreshing and brand new European Sourcing LeadContinue reading “#OldMeNewMe (Part I.)”

it’s all about technology… oh wait! it’s not [SLIDES] from #intelligence16

I had the great pleasure to present on Textkernel’s 15th birthday conference in Amsterdam. Imagine a room with some 3-400 attendees and with presenters coming from all parts of the world of technology. Among these super-smart professors and other top speakers like Glen Cathey and Bill Boorman I was playing the grumpy role of the devil’s advocate.Continue reading “it’s all about technology… oh wait! it’s not [SLIDES] from #intelligence16”

Those 40 must-have sourcing tools… my #sosuasia slides

It was an amazing experience presenting on #sosuasia last week! Although we hear way too little about the guys and what they do in Asia, it is so impressive to see how much keen they are to implement and develop sourcing within their Talent Acquisition function. Being a late joiner in a game does notContinue reading “Those 40 must-have sourcing tools… my #sosuasia slides”

How many CVs does your Sourcer [really] need to make?

This makes me crazy: some recruiting leaders determine totally ad-hoc productivity targets for sourcers, often, without understanding what the business really needs and what can be a realistic requirement. Ridicule! It looks like sourcing is only a number game and these leaders love to hear those (usually super rare) stories when sourcers make 20 (or even more) qualified, interested and availableContinue reading “How many CVs does your Sourcer [really] need to make?”

#thebalazswins – the absolute sourcing duel with @jimstroud

Sourcers have to develop new skills every day. Searching, stalking, cracking, little coding, becoming a marketer and a sweet negotiator – and it is all not enough anymore… …they have to be cool actors, too! 😀 Watch the below and share the love of sourcing – and certainly, don’t forget to use the right hashtag: #thebalazswins

My Ever First #SourceCon Experience

It all starts with that super-long journey: taking those pretty uncomfortable extra miles on planes, in taxis, queuing here and there sometimes for hours, those thousands of foreign faces you randomly meet while getting lost in time zones, languages and emotions. The feeling of cold and hot in the same time. And then… welcome toContinue reading “My Ever First #SourceCon Experience”
