Monthly Recruiting Newsletter

January 2012

In This Issue

January is a busy time of year. The holidays are over, everyone is back to work, and most employers are focused on New Year initiatives, including hiring. January is an optimal time to reassess your recruiting programs and resolve to make modifications to initiatives based on results from the past year. And this month we have a variety of articles that address many of the recruiting issues you will more than likely be faced with in the year ahead.

One of the most important areas you should assess at the beginning of each year is your compliance strategy; ensuring that you have programs in place that meet laws and regulations as it pertains to Equal Opportunity hiring and Affirmative Action. For more details, read Your Compliance Strategy for the New Year.

In terms of compliance, we have two articles which outline the history of two of the most important laws governing OFCCP, including Origins of Affirmative Action and A Closer Look at the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA).

And we can't end this newsletter without asking you about your New Year's resolutions. What are they? In our article New Year's Resolutions for Recruiters we outline some proactive steps you can take today to make the best of your efforts, including aligning your recruiting programs to your organizational and employee development plans to how best to use social media.

Speaking of social media, it's probably one of the most efficient ways to vet potential candidates, not to mention an effective career development tool that recruiters can use to align their own professional experience with their career development. Read our article Using Social Media for Research and Development for more.

We wish you the best of luck with your recruiting initiatives this year.
