An old cowboy proverb asserts that “Nobody ever drowned in his own sweat.”
Recruiting is the most difficult function within HR yet too many seem to be taking low-work shortcuts – like asking for assistance in finding “engineers” after exhausting all their “creativity”…perusing resumes off job boards. Ahem???
Because of this, I offer the second tenet of the Poupon Principle:
Hard work are two four-letter words (come to think of it, GenY is also a four letter word)
[for the quesy GenYers who are sick of being called prima donna whine babies, this isn’t what I’m referring to – I just wanted an emotional uptick from the people who actually read my stuff. Laziness is not confined to any one group but there sure are a bunch of recruiters who are afraid to work hard enough to break through a critical barrier]
Why so afraid of the hard work?
