20 Principles of Recruiting and Talent Management
The following is a list of 20 principles, laws, or guidelines to help you design and implement effective recruiting strategies and approaches:
A well-defined strategy. The foundation of any recruiting effort is a clearly defined and communicated strategy that illustrates the brand message, target candidates, primary sources, and most-effective closing approaches (the who, what, when, and how). Poorly defined or communicated strategy elements results in wasted resources and weak hires. In addition, the best strategies have the capability of “shifting” as the economy and the demand for candidates change.

Benefit Survey Summary
On June 4th a Benefits Survey was rolled out to Staff at Gemini North and the AURA expatriate staff in Chile. The survey will be open until June 25th and is being administered by AURA’s Benefits Brokers Lovitt & Touche. Its purpose is to gain a better understanding of how AURA can manage the rising costs of health care while continuing to provide employees with useful, valuable, comprehensive and affordable benefit programs. Having employees complete the survey and provide us with their direct feedback, AURA can better understand preferences and identify where additional education and communications efforts are needed. Even those who are completely satisfied with their benefits package have been encouraged to participate as we want to know that too!
Employee input will be extremely valuable, as AURA prepares for 2015 benefit program strategic planning.
