This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve is joined by recruitment industry legend Jim Stroud, an expert in sourcing, recruiting, candidate attraction, branding and more to get the state of recruting in 2019 and the overall labor market and how that impacts organizations. Jim shared his insights on how the lack of candidates in particular industries like in trucking and in caregiving are impacting recruiting efforts for organizations in these fields. Jim also discussed how soft skills like empathy and interpersonal skills are increasingly important for candidates in almost all fields and especially for those in recruiting or who are aspiring to be in recruiting. Jim shared some tips for how to best improve and develop those skills as well. Finally, we talked about some of the newer tools and technologies that are emerging and evolving in recruiting in 2019 and beyond.
This was a fun show, thanks so much to Jim for joining us.
