Reveille and Hyperbole  
Age Lessons, a new "thinking firm" (part think tank and part consulting firm) that converts knowledge of the Baby Boomer cohort into business opportunities, employee relations programs and policy recommendations has been formed.  "From employee retention to product development, what's been missing in Boomer marketing to date are niche-specific solutions that resonate with Boomers," said Laurel Kennedy, company president. "Age Lessons is challenging conventional wisdom to deliver actionable Boomer marketplace solutions, complemented by revolutionary policy ideas." Age Lessons serves as a barometer of cohort needs and interests in key areas such as finance/money, wellness/body, values/spirit, career/work and social/play. The company also offers innovative solutions such as The Guilded Age, a re-thinking of union and trade association roles; Family Referees, coaches who work through multi-generational household issues; and Grayfield Enterprises, where senior executives find a second career by founding new companies.

Lies, Smarts or Just Plain Tact?
I had an interesting conversation with our new Worldwide Talent Acquisition Leader. We were talking about influentials in the recruiting space and the dialogue that has occurred in the online space regarding ethics around headhunting and guerrilla recruiting. My inclination has always been to lean in favor of a more, let's say, aggressive approach to finding and hiring the best talent. I have no problem calling a candidate from a competing firm and offering them an opportunity to explore a career with Waggener Edstrom Worldwide. Companies do not own employees and if another firm offers a career opportunity that is a better match than so be it. I don't think she disagreed with this but she did provide an interesting point of view to consider regarding guerrilla recruiting tactics—and it really made me think that there is a lot more at stake then ethics……(RecruitingRevolution)

Google lets advertisers target ads using demographic data
Google Inc. (GOOG) has started allowing advertisers to use demographic data to target keyword-ads they place on sites in Google's publisher network, without sparking privacy worries by tapping user information. The Mountain View, Calif., Internet giant said it is using data about U.S. visitors to its partner sites - such as age, ethnicity, gender, income and other factors - that are collected by market research firm comScore Media Metrix. ComScore's data comes from thousands of Web users who voluntarily provide information about their surfing habits. Google said it won't use personal information about users from Google products such as Gmail or from any other source. (Marketwatch)

Preparing for Baby Boomer Retirement
While the stakes are high and the issues complex, those companies that think through the data, come up with the right questions and craft a long-term comprehensive strategy now not only will survive this historic wave, but also will have the potential ride its crest. Useful demographic information, insights into associated data and a set of comprehensive questions will help you lay the foundation of a strategic plan to position your company for opportunity and growth as the retirement wave approaches.

People Skills Deserve More Respect
A survey finds that 35 percent of internally hired leaders fail, usually because of a lack of interpersonal skills, and that companies with strong leader-development programs enjoy better business results. The quality that leaders respect most in other leaders is the ability to bring in financial results, according to a recent report by talent-development consultancy Development Dimensions International. In DDI's fourth annual survey, nearly 5,000 "leaders" and human resources representatives around the world ranked decision-making ability second and vision for success third among qualities that garner their respect. (CFO)

Craig's List to Move Into Journalism
Mike Elgan: "Online classified ads pioneer Craig Newmark says he plans to soon launch an online citizen journalism project within the next few months that will harness the "wisdom of the masses" approach taken by the Craigslist service."
UPDATE: Craig Newmark clarifies here and in comments. (MicroPersuasion)

Attracting the 'Passive Candidate'
Looking for that 'just-right' person for the job? Try the soft sell, writes CIO Update columnist David Bair of Kforce. The passive candidate has long held a certain mystic among hiring managers; difficult to identify and even more difficult to recruit, these professionals are considered by many to be the "Holy Grail" of job candidates for two primary reasons: Because they are happily employed, passive candidates are thought to be much more loyal and more stable than professionals who are employed but actively pursuing a new position.  Because they are not actively seeking a new position, the belief is that there will be less competition for the attentions of a passive candidate. (CIOUpdate)

New programs help companies 'mine' workers' relationships
It's not what you know. It's who you know. Turning that old maxim into a commercial concept, several new companies are developing software to help employers mine their employees' acquaintances for new business prospects. The programs scan workers' contacts from their computerized address books, instant-message buddy lists, electronic calendars and e-mail correspondence. They then make maps of all the relationships they find among the employees and all their contacts. (SFGate)

RPO firms gearing up to bring hiring solutions in India
After the BPO and KPO boom, the corporate sector in India is steadily gearing up for a new concept - RPO, that is Recruitment Process Outsourcing. It aims at taking the burden out of the head-hunting business of the corporate sector. "There has been a sudden surge of demand for candidates as the job scenario in the country looks in a good shape. So, we have come up with our team of recruiters to bridge this gap between demand and supply", says Vipul Prakash, Partner of a firm handling recruitments. While the RPO concept has taken a healthy shape in the Western countries, in India however, there are a few RPO firms currently catering to the needs of various domestic as well as multi-nationals in hiring employees for them.

New regulations have taken an age to come
The new regulations on age have been launched by the DTI today giving employers just six months to prepare before they become statutory. The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) urge employers to appraise the new legal obligations without delay and take immediate action to avoid facing employment tribunals and hefty fines.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) expects to save more than £280m over the next 10 years by slashing the size of its HR function and introducing a new shared-services centre reports tomorrow's Personnel Today magazine.

It is a leading edge online tool providing growing businesses and candidates with key information in the most relevant manner possible," said Gough, Propelity.com CEO.

Recruiting physicians will become even more difficult
As the population ages, what happens in a state that already ranks 49in physicians per capita and has difficulty recruiting enough doctors? The recruiting could get even more difficult, says Mike Abrams, executive vice president of the Iowa Medical Society. Among the factors contributing to Iowa's difficulty in attracting physicians are the six-figure debts that many new doctors owe after medical school, Abrams said. The need to pay off debt draws them to regions where doctors make more money. (DesMoinesRegister)

Survey Sez:
Recruiters Forecasting Explosive Executive Job Growth
With the unemployment rate falling to a four and a half year low and the economy on track for robust first-quarter growth, ExecuNets Recruiters Confidence Index (RCI) remains at all time highs, as those on the front lines of the job market expect the demand for executive talent to soar in the months ahead. Introduced in May 2003, the Recruiters Confidence Index (RCI) is based on a monthly survey of executive recruiters conducted by ExecuNet, the leading executive job search and recruiting network.

According to the survey of 145 executive recruiters, 76% are confident or very confident that the executive employment market will improve during the next six months down slightly from a thirteen-month high of 79% in January. During this period of time, the search industry is expecting a 27% increase in the number of assignments received from corporate clients.

Confidence In The Executive Employment Market

Next Six Months

Recruiters short-term outlook is also strong, 77% are confident or very confident the employment market will improve in the next three months down from 81% one month ago.

New job listings at ExecuNet are up over twenty percent year-to-date as hiring plans remain robust at the executive level, says Mark Anderson, President of ExecuNet. With the job market of 1999-2000 still fresh in their minds, corporate recruiters are becoming increasingly concerned about the implications of a shortage of talent.

To prepare for sustained growth in the employment market, 55% of all search firms have plans to hire additional professional staff in the next three months a significant increase over the number of executive recruiting firms that have added professional staff during the past three months (32%).

ExecuNet, a career management and recruiting network for top executives and recruiters, is a recognized authority in executive hiring and recruiting trends. ExecuNet helps members identify career opportunities and attain professional success by providing exclusive job postings, opportunities and tactics designed to expand personal and professional networks, and career advancement strategies.
