Natalie Potts – “ABR has each employee’s best interest at heart, above everything else!  They have the upmost respect for their customers and are truly good people, trying to do the best for everyone. They have made my life better in so many ways, that I could never begin to thank them enough!”

Wendy Boursier – Everyone at ABR Steven Point was over the top helpful in securing a position to fit not only my needs, but most importantly the needs of the employer. They found a company and position for me that will become my lifelong career. I spent 25+ years in a completely different industry but ABR helped me see my potential in a new industry harnessing my assets as they flowed into my new position. They also helped me see areas of opportunity for improvement in various areas. Being open and honest is a touchy area for some people, but for me it gave me an opportunity to grow as a professional.”

HR Insights Magazine – July/August Issue

Whether you’re looking for ideas to mull over or concrete suggestions to implement, you’ll find plenty to interest you in this latest edition of HR Insights.

In our feature article, “It’s Time for HR Pros to Put on Their Marketing Hats,” Charles Coy states that Although HR professionals have been told for some time to adopt a marketing mindset, only now do they actually have the tools to start following that advice. By using data-driven insights and inbound strategies, HR leaders can build long-term relationships with potential candidates—whether they’re looking for a job today or a year from now.”  Two of the items he mentions are having the ability to track where the best candidates have originated from, and the ability to leverage talent communities with your ATS where you can keep people educated and connected to your company while they are in the job search market.  He says that this is a process and you need to have cast a wide net to with multiple ways to make sure your brand (aka- your company as their future potential employer) continues to be in front of them.

As you think over what the future holds for your organization, we are here to help you identify the optimal goals for your organization—and advise you on strategies for reaching them. Whether you already have specific questions in mind or you want to explore some vague possibilities, please contact us to discuss.
