EPISODE 3 – RECRUITING TEAMWORK & COLLABORATION WITH PERRI BLAKE GORMAN
Fifty-four percent of companies still have a manual staffing plan process that’s spreadsheet based. The spreadsheet makes a collaborative recruiting environment as challenge especially when it comes to candidate and industry research as well as sourcing. The spreadsheet is a horrible yet prevalent recruiter and hiring process. Yet a growing number of employees want a collaborative and teamwork based environment focused on data and information sharing. Archively’s CEO and Founder, Perri Blake Gorman talks about the new teamwork based recruiting research functionality of Archively. I love what they are doing for a number of reasons so much so that I am an investor in her company.
Perri is one of the very few HR technology founders who has a background as a recruiter. She talks about how being a former executive retained search recruiter helped her to build a product that allows for recruiters to do their candidate homework before reaching out to their top prospects on social networks, email or phone.
Recruiting Process & Teamwork
Perri’s company is unique in that they not only provide technology for sourcing and recruiting but they also do sourcing and research for a growing number of companies. Recruiting is about collaboration, teamwork and process. Her bold prediction for the next trend in recruiting technology is that we will see a trend back to old school where recruiting is more about relationships and more traditional search methods.
