Quality of Hire & Retention – HRs KPI or Recruiters KPI


There has always been a disconnect between HR and Recruiter even as the profession evolved.

On one side we have Sourcers and third party recruiters who have a hacker mentality who focus on bringing that purple squirrel, using the boolean search strings and social search tools. But on the other side we have HR and hiring managers who focus more on bringing those talents that will be a great culture fit for their organization.

What’s the reason for that disconnect? Is it lack of focus or lack of collaboration? Anyhow, this can negatively impact the whole hiring process in an organization and most of all it is can effect the ‘Quality of Hire’.

Join us, as we associate with Key Resourcing for the first ever ‘OPEN DEBATE’ between some of the seasoned Recruiters and HR professionals in the industry  on ‘Quality of Hires & Retention – HRs KPI or Recruiters KPI’

Here are some debatable thoughts!

Q1. Why Recruiters dislike HR and vice versa?
Q2. What is stopping HR & Recruiters from collaborating each other to make a quality hire?
Q3. Why do recruiters make blind promises to candidates that HR can’t keep up with?
Q4. Does HR think Recruiters are well equipped to assess the cultural fit of a candidate?
Q5. HR/Recruiters – Who has more control over retaining talent?

Join us while our eminent speakers, thought leaders and HR/Recruiting experts are having a sparkling debate on  ‘Quality of Hires & Retention – HRs KPI or Recruiters KPI’ on September 2nd,  Tuesday at 8pm IST / 9.30 am CST /10.30 am EST.
