In this episode of Sourcing School, we have a shining star of the recruiting industry Jackie Flake. Ryan and Brian pick her brain about the power of agile SCRUM recruiting, the challenges and nuances of office reintegration, and recruiting best practices.
SCRUM recruiting revolves around time blocks, where a very specific amount of time is reserved for various stages of the recruiting process. This provides teams with the benefit of staying on task and higher deadline success rates. There are always challenges with every form of workflow, however. But Jackie discusses ways to minimize these weaknesses.
Regarding the return to work, we seem to be in a strange "hybrid" transition at the moment. Companies want workers to come back for a few days a week, or perhaps even for just a productive luncheon. There's been pushback from this change, but what's the root cause? Is it laziness, a hatred of traffic, or do they just want to be able to pick up their kids from school easier?
