WhatsApp Group Chat – What are those incidents, experiences, experiments and out of the box ideas which helped you to successfully achieve KRAs?

For the WhatsApp Group Chat discussion that we had, we decided to do something different as we knew that our members were constantly inundated with information. For this reason the topic of discussion was on, what is that one (or more) incident/experience/experiment/out of the box idea which you have implemented in your daily work which resulted in placements or helped you in successfully achieving your KRAs? Well we received an outpour of responses from our members and here’s what we came across…12I’d like to include all the tips that were shared along with these impressive incidents, experiences, experiments and out of the box ideas but the list would be endless. More importantly I didn’t know that we were in the presence of such creative individuals, well now I do and I’m really glad to get to know them.

WhatsApp Group Chat – What difference can creativity make when Recruiters are already meeting their targets?

As Talent Acquisition Professionals we are constantly in search of talent for vacancies that crop up at regular intervals. With that being said, getting candidates that meet all the requirements isn’t easy. In such a scenario we start looking for ways and techniques that can help boost the candidate search. This got us thinking whether creativity has something to do with the candidate search hence the question, “what difference can creativity make when Recruiters are already meeting their targets?” This was the focus of the WhatsApp Group Chat that was held. Here’s what we found out…12This discussion that we had was amazing with interesting inputs to the question. A look into the discussion made us realise that we’ve never thought about these aspects. Well, we got the answer to the question that was posed earlier on in the write up.
