You Should Know:
China lets foreigners control HR consulting firms
Global human resources consulting firms expect to control their Chinese joint ventures after Beijing recently relaxed restrictions on foreign investment in the sector, government officials said on Friday.  Foreign headhunters, such as U.S. firm Manpower Inc. (MAN.N: Quote, Profile, Research), are now allowed to control joint ventures with stakes of up to 70 percent if they agree to register the companies in the Pudong district of Shanghai, China's financial hub, an official at the city's human resources authority said.

Outsource SEO vs In-house SEO
SEO is becoming increasingly important to all who look to do business and use the Internet as a marketing tool. It is the path in which your market finds your offering. It has become almost a necessity for businesses to incorporate SEO in to their marketing plan. Many companies struggle with the decision on whether to hire a firm or conduct their SEO in-house.  Unfortunately many companies lack the knowledge about SEO and assume it will be cheaper for them in the long run to hire someone "in-house". For some companies this may be efficient while others the overlooking the hiring of a professional firm to SEO can be costly. It is as critical to your business' health as if you were to feel that you could heal a fatal disease yourself because you have access to the Internet and books instead of going to a highly trained physician. Now you laugh and say that would be absurd, but is the growth of your company worth the risk. (Promotion World)

Generation Y
Generation Y
is the cohort of people born immediately after "Generation X", though the term is itself controversial and is synonymous with several alternative terms, listed below. Due to the history of the term, and its relation to the earlier term "Generation X", a term specifically coined with reference to Americans and Canadians of certain birth years, the term Generation Y is at times used to refer only to Americans or North Americans, but is also at times extrapolated beyond North America to refer to similarly aged youth in the Western World or Anglophone World, especially due to the increasingly overlapping cultural consumption of this age group in western nations.

Furthermore, little legal protection exists for workplace gender non-conformity. (Human Rights Campaign Foundation)

Deep Release:
HR Leaders From 25 Countries Share Perspectives and Practices
According to a recent global research initiative conducted by the Bernard Hodes Global Network, 62% of respondents formally support employer brand initiatives while only 24% have metrics in place to measure these efforts.

The Bernard Hodes Global Network ( utilized both quantitative and qualitative methodologies to assess the state of employer branding globally. The survey, offered in four languages, produced 20 one-on-one interviews and 487 online surveys among HR leaders in 25 countries.

"The study reveals that a key driver for employer brand development is the need to acquire talent in a competitive global market," said Alan V. Schwartz, president and CEO of Bernard Hodes Group. "We look forward to helping our HR partners develop their employer brand and meet their talent needs as well as define metrics to illustrate the value that these initiatives bring to their company's bottom line."

Other key facts reported:

  • The most frequently named key expectations of employer branding were "ease in attracting candidates" (84%) and "recognition as employer of choice" (82%).
  • Research methodologies are undertaken in support of employer brand efforts as illustrated by 76% of respondents reporting they actively conduct employee studies.
  • 79% of respondents reported HR as one of the key stakeholders in the management of the employer brand.
  • 94% of respondents used their corporate Web site more than other brand channels such as printed materials (72%) to promote employer brand.

Another key fact repeatedly mentioned in the research was the importance of both an internal and external component to employer branding. In the Netherlands, Jo Pieters, global vice president recruitment, Philips supports this concept: "Each and every employee should act as an ambassador of your brand and that requires a strong and recognized internal and external employee value proposition."

The need for a more encompassing view of employer branding was also expressed by research study team leader Annette Browdy, senior vice president and director of marketing communications at Bernard Hodes Group. "We believe these results will provide our HR partners insight as well as inspiration to take more of a holistic approach to their employer brand building efforts."

The report also offers suggestions on approaching the employer branding process. These recommendations found in the final section of the report, "Next Steps" by
D. Mark Hornung, senior vice president, branding, Bernard Hodes Group, are based on Hodes' exclusive 360 degree employer brand methodology.
