I’m delighted to announce that the first two episodes of my new Recruiting Future podcast are now live. The over arching theme of the podcast is recruitment innovation and I’m planning on releasing several interviews every month with practitioners and other thought leaders who are doing interesting things in our space. With so many theories circulating on how to improve, optimize or revolutionize all aspects of recruitment it is important that the podcast cuts through the hype and deals with the real issues companies face in terms of talent attraction and recruiting. The choice of guests will reflect this and I’m committed to finding new stories and case studies that may not have been widely seen or heard before.
For the launch episode I went back into my archives and found two very interesting interviews that I recorded some time ago but had never previously published.
Firstly Peter Lovell from Jagex talks about the challenges of recruiting globally in a very difficult talent market and shares an old school approach, which Jagex has found works brilliantly for them. Following on from this Chris Hoyt from Pepsico talks predictive data analytics and mobile in a interview that was recorded at the iRecruit Expo in Amsterdam.
What I love most about podcasts is the flexibility they offer in terms of where and how you listen to them. With that in mind, I’ve made sure you can listen and subscribe to the Recruiting Future Podcast in a number of places:

The next episode will be out at some point next week and features a great discussion with Bethan Davies who is Senior Manager Talent Acquisition and Employee Engagement at RMS
